Fleming's Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar Restaurant Review: The River in Rancho Mirage is home to the Palm Springs-area outpost of this upscale steak and seafood chain. The dining room is a simple, open space with a half-partition dividing it from the bar and lounge. The selection of dry-aged steaks and classic seafood, such as the Alaskan king crab with drawn butter, are solid. Side dishes, all offered à la carte, include creamed spinach and potatoes with varying preparations. Small plates, such as sliced filet mignon with shiitake risotto, are a nice start to any meal. Even vegetarians will be pleased with their selection of leafy dishes, such as a generous bowl of seasonal vegetables or a spinach salad. The cheese selection, wine list and the servers’ wine knowledge are impressive. Desserts, perhaps New York cheesecake, an ample-size slice, seem destined for two forks. Fleming's does a bustling happy hour, and is a bargain with five select appetizers, wines and cocktails offered for just $6 each every day of the week until 7 p.m.
