Guide Review - Fleming's Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar - Akron Ohio

The building and landscaping at Fleming's Prime Steakhouse is as inviting as the restaurant's complimentary valet parking. The interior is formal, but not stuffy, the style classic with light touches of art deco, cherry woodwork, and decorative wine racks. Lively music fills the air.

The Food at Fleming's Prime Steakhouse
The menu contains appetizers, salads, sides, and seafood, but Fleming's is known for its prime corn-fed beef. There is a cut and size for every taste, from the 8 oz. petite filet mignon to the 40 oz. porterhouse steak. The wine list offers an impressive 100+ wines by the glass, over 40 of which are chosen by the Akron location's wine manager.

A complimentary starter course begins the meal. The salads and sides are large enough to be split between two people. We enjoyed the spinach and portobella mushroom salad. The combination of cold spinach and tomatoes with the explosion of warm goat cheese in a crispy crust, tossed in red onion balsamic dressing, is bursting with flavor.

The filet mignon was so tender, a knife was hardly necessary. Fleming's Potatoes are multiple layers of scalloped potatoes, cream, jalapenos, and cheese. The taste was smooth and delicious with just enough spice to keep it interesting. The hot out-of-the-oven signature Chocolate Lava Cake contained the smoothest, sweetest, most addicting hot melted chocolate filling.

Service
The staff at Fleming's is remarkable. Our server guided us through this culinary journey, ensuring that we would order the dishes we would most enjoy. The Operating Partner stopped by to greet us. The Sous Chef came to our table to see if our meal was to our satisfaction. Obviously, they care about showing diners a wonderful evening.

You owe it to yourself to experience Fleming's Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar in Akron.

Disapointing, Member ErinSatter

My husband and I wanted a romantic evening out, and we wanted to celebrate our daughter’s graduation from medical school, so we selected Flemings. WOW where we disappointed. The food was not worth the cost, and it was very poorly prepared, I am not sure if the fish was completly cooked. I asked the waiter to take it back and cook it and it took forever to have it returned. We have dined at many fine restaurants in Cleveland, and we believe in supporting local business, but at Flemings the service was horrible and we will never return. Do yourself a favor and do not dine at Flemings.
