Fleming's Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar Restaurant Review

: Dining at Fleming's is an outsized experience, starting with the bold Cabernet olive tapenade delivered as an opener to the silky signature martini. R.E.M. and Mellencamp tunes in the background take the edge off the clubby atmosphere, and service is professional without being intimidating. Served as an appetizer, the lobster tempura is nearly a meal in itself: six lobster tails accompanied by jalapeño and ginger dipping sauces. We find a heavy hand at work on the peppermill when it comes to the sautéed mushrooms, but the lightly seasoned bone-in rib-eye is a masterful exercise in simplicity. The USDA Prime hand-cut, wet- and dry-aged beef also includes filets and New York strips, all seared by intensely high-heat cooking for the signature steakhouse outer crust. Sundays bring The Sunday Table, with a three-course menu ($48 per person) that includes slow-roasted beef tenderloin. If you have room, the chocolate lava cake makes for a fitting, and over-the-top, ending. The wine list features numerous hard-to-find American boutique wines as well as renowned national and international labels, with 100 wines by the glass and an 80-label reserve list.
