Fleming's Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar Restaurant Review

: It's vociferous and spunky at Fleming's, but you wouldn't want it any other way. As the sun sets, the handsome dark interior with red cherry wood walls fills with business parties, well-heeled couples and celebratory groups who nosh on solid steak and seafood dinners. The wine list features more than 100 by-the-glass choices, and servers readily dole out samples to those with mercurial palates. Appetizers include lightly breaded calamari with a sweet chile sauce, and lump crab cakes in a roasted red pepper butter. Prime-grade, wet-aged steaks, including New York strip, filet mignon and bone-in rib-eye, are cooked to specs, just as you'd expect from this branch of the upscale chain. They are fine sans sauce, but don’t be shy to ask for one of the complimentary adornments: peppercorn sauce, béarnaise or a Cabernet mustard. Alaskan king crab legs and North Atlantic lobster tails reign supreme over the seafood selections. For accompaniments, we can’t resist the creamed spinach or the chipotle cheddar macaroni and cheese. Sly diners take advantage of the Sunday prime rib special, which comes with a choice of side dish, salad and dessert, such as the baked peach cobbler.
