For details on Fleming's,
Robbie Smith party of 2 had dinner and rated the food
excellent because, "Every morsel was worth it." and writes on
October 10, 2006, "We sat down in a quiet mildly lit table near the
back with the utmost respect and courtesy. Our waiter properly
introduced himself and welcomed us to Flemings; asked if it was our
first time or repeat visit, "First time" we said. The menu was about
8 pages long, 7 of which included the wine selection. The last page
was for the food items.
I can't exactly remember what we ordered, but it was worth every
penny spent. Honestly, that was the most expensive piece of meat
that I have ever bought; $50. I hated to eat such a fine work of
art, but alas, I did. As an honor to the chef, I stood and placed
the bone exactly how it was delivered back on the plate, straight up
on it's back.
We elected not to get an appetizer, but the chef brought one out
anyway. We wanted to save room for desert. We bought 5 different
Every moment of the dining experience was remembered and savored. We
highly highly recommend this unique opportunity."

The biggest disappointment was the fact that Fleming's advertises
itself as a "wine bar" and does not have any of the proper glasses
for serving wines. I realize Fleming's has the largest "by the
glass" selection in the area. However, in the wrong glass, it does
not mean anything.
You have some very nice (and expensive) wines by the glass. However,
I assume since you claim to be a wine bar, someone in your employ
would be familiar with the proper glasses to serve different grapes
I ordered a Chardonnay that came in a pinot noir glass. When I asked
the waiter if he could serve it in a Chardonnay glass he told me
that was the "generic" wine glass for the restaurant. I assume
someone there knows the chardonnay grape cannot stand up to such a
large glass. I was annoyed that I spent the money for a nice
Chardonnay and was not able to appreciate it.
The same thing happened when I ordered a Cabernet Sauvignon. It was
served in the same Pinot Noir glass.
Granted, there are a many restaurants that only have one generic
glass for their small wine selections. However, their wine lists are
limited and they are very inexpensive wines.
If you can't serve wine in the appropriate glass, don't expect
people to order a quality wine and don't claim to be a wine bar.
