As part of my birthday we decided to go out to dinner at Fleming’s Steakhouse. I honestly love the charm of this place when you walk in. I felt a little funny taking pictures in a nice steak place, so I’m sorry if the pictures looked rushed.
While looking over the menu they brought out a loaf of bread and 2 types of butters a feta one that I loved and a sun dried tomato one which D loved.
We started our meal with HALF AND HALF $8.95 (double-cut shoestring fries and our signature onion rings) since none of the appetizers really grabbed us. We had mixed feelings on this. The onion rings where really good the shoestring fries where greasy and unappetizing.
I ordered the PORCINI RUBBED FILET MIGNON $38.95 (center cut, grilled high country asparagus spears, gorgonzola cream sauce). OH WOW! This just melts in your mouth. I questioned the porcini rub, but after tasting it, I understood. I would order this again in a heart beat.
D ordered the Chef’s Selection Entrée $42.95 (crab cake, filet and stuffed shrimp). All of items where really tasty, but not worth the price, I think next time we would just stick to one of the regular steaks.
We ordered 2 sides to share. FLEMING’S POTATOES $8.50 (our house specialty with cream, jalapeños and cheddar cheese), CHIPOTLE CHEDDAR MACARONI & CHEESE $8.50 (smoked cheddar and leeks). Both items where melt in your mouth good and I would recommend both to anyone.
After our meal we where so full we passed on dessert, but our waiter Cody was so nice he put in a little box for my birthday for us to enjoy later. Oh wow where these truffles yummy! I thought it was a great touch as well as a birthday card from the restaurant.
Overall, I can’t wait to go back. The steak just melts in your mouth and service is fantastic. I loved every part of the experience!
