We recently had the pleasure of dining at Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse and Wine Bar in Walnut Creek. It was a Thursday night and the restaurant and bar were busy, yet it didn’t seem crowded. We had not made a reservation, but our hostess was very friendly and accommodating. We were shown to a table with no delay.

The menu is a la carte and wide ranging with an assortment of off-the-menu specials. It wasn’t easy to make a selection from the extensive offerings. We decided on the Fleming’s Salad, which is similar to a Waldorf salad, accompanied by the lobster bisque, for starters. Our salads were tasty and the bisque delicious; but be warned, it can be a bit strong for some.

For the main course, we went with the ‘Main’ fillet and the sautéed scallops. Both were excellent, cooked just right and very flavorful. Steak and lobster (at left) is also an excellent option. We split a New York cheesecake for dessert.

The portions are just right. We were satisfied but not overly filled at the conclusion.

The service at Fleming’s is top rate. The servers give you just the right amount of attention without a feeling of being overwhelmed or ignored as is sometimes the case in other upscale places. They are well versed on the menu and excellent at suggesting wine pairings for your meal.

The ambience at the restaurant and in the adjacent bar is intimate with a soothing color palette and soft lighting. The dining room is often bustling with activity, so it’s not the place to go for a quiet supper. However the restaurant is perfect for a family dinner as well as a romantic getaway. You can also enjoy cocktails and a special menu in the bar.

Expect to spend in excess of $100 for two guests plus wine or cocktails. If you delight in being pampered and enjoy fine food and wine, it’s well worth it. Through March 29th, Flemings is offering a 3-course Prix Fixe menu for $39.95 per person. There will be an Easter brunch from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday, April 4.

Parking is convenient, with an entrance from the free parking garage. Valet parking is available. You can also enter from the street, but there are stairs or an elevator to the second floor dining room from that entrance

Fleming’s is located in downtown Walnut Creek at 1685 Mount Diablo Blvd.

Open Monday through Thursday from 5 p.m.. to 10 p.m.. Saturday from 5 p.m.. to 11 p.m. and Sunday from 5 p.m.. to 9 p.m.

Reservations are not required but are advisable. (925) 287-0297
