Fleming's Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar Restaurant Review

: Fleming's Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar is a large restaurant chain from Paul Fleming, the man whose initials can be found in another of his creations, P. F. Chang’s. This branch is one of the many new eateries at L.A. Live, the 27-acre mixed use development downtown that includes the NOKIA Theatre, just across the street from Staples Center and the Los Angeles Convention Center. The large patio is on the heavily-trafficked corner of Figueroa and Olympic. The long wooden bar inside is much more inviting, and makes a convenient stop for post-office mingling or pre-game imbibing. In front of the open kitchen in the cavernous space are plenty of medium woods and banquettes to give the place a contemporary feel, as well as a small private dining room with see-through walls. The steakhouse chain sets itself apart from others by its extensive wine list, with more than 100 selections served by the glass, known as the Fleming’s 100. At least 30 of these are selected here by the local wine manager, Evan Tsuchiyama. Much of the décor features large photographs of wine or actual bottles stored in the wooden walls. As the name suggests, the restaurant offers tasty Prime beef, as well as salads, seafood and other steakhouse staples from a standardized menu prepared simply by chef Calvin Holladay. Happily, they have enough confidence in their product not to push sauces for their steaks, but will provide a few upon request. The satisfying sides tend to be decadent, including their signature potatoes made with cream, jalapeños and cheddar cheese, three kinds of mashed potatoes, or chipotle cheddar macaroni and cheese. If you have room for dessert–--and you really shouldn’t---the chocolate lava cake will fill it nicely.

Great service

Had an anniversary dinner there and they treated us as if we were special. Every manager, server, hostess came over and wished me a happy anniversary, the servers were always on time when we needed something, and the food came out perfect and tasty. My steak was sizzling hot and - dessert - the chocolate filled cake was outstanding. We would definitely visit Flemings again weather it is in Los Angles or in the Orlando area. :D
