All of this attention! We lapped it up. And the attention did not smother us. But we did notice that even on a Friday night, the place was not packed. A few empty tables remained during the evening. This would not have been the case a couple of years ago. For my part, I reveled in the attention. For a place with high price points, the service has to be above expectations. Fleming's delivered on this night.
And, they also delivered on scrumptious food and wine. We started with glasses of white - Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc for hubby and Helfrich Alsatian Pinot Gris for me. Both delicious and both paired well with the Caesar salad that we split. And since we stated up front that we would split the salad, it was presented on two plates with chilled forks. The dressing definitely made use of anchovies and both wines held their own with the little fishies.
For dinner we ordered a 2007 Chelsea Goldschmidt Merlot to drink. Full bodied and satisfying.
My spouse selected the Rockfish and Scallops special and I had the Veal Chop. We also split a Half and Half side - shoestring potatoes and giant onion rings fried in peanut oil. Both entrees were very tasty. Fleming's did a great job in preparing the veal.
