If you have never been to Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse, this restaurant is a definite must go to. I love this place. The dining room is set to please the eye, with a large spacious area to sit, an extravagant bar, a private room downstairs for parties and a wide variety of specials offered to accommodate the current economy. Nestled in the quaint and cozy city of Newport Beach, California, they are located off of Bison & Mac Arthur in the ever so popular shopping center of Fashion Island. I would like to share some of their
fabulous offerings currently on their menu, as well as one offer, “Small Plates, Big Pours” that is going on through June 30. If you are all about “Living Champagne Dreams on a Beer Budget” which defines the whole theme of my blog, then you are definitely going to love Fleming’s because you get the best offerings and delectable surprises for your money. For a journey to please the taste buds in an elegant atmosphere, check these deals out!
I recently went to Fleming’s to check out the “Small Plates, Big Pours” special offering that is going on right now through the end of June. Small Plates, Big Pours gives you an awesome opportunity to check out several of the menu offerings that Fleming’s Steakhouse has to offer along with some of their fabulous wine varietals. There are 7 different options to choose from on the Small Plates, Big Pours list. The 7 menu items that are offered include these varieties with these recommended wines. These wines can be
mixed and matched to go with any of the dishes desired below. Wines paired with each menu item are suggestions of proper pairings from the chef, but ultimately you can make your own selection. The “Small Plates, Big Pours” going on through June 30 is $24.95 per person for their small plate of food and their ample pour of wine (1 ½ glass pour). You cannot beat the pours here! In addition to the wines mentioned below, this restaurant has over 100 wines by the glass on their menu!
SLICED FILET MIGNON
Merlot – Esk Valley – Gimblet Gravels, New Zealand
COLOSSAL SHRIMP SKEWERS
Pinot Gris – Villa Wolf – Pfalz, Germany
NEW ZEALAND PETITE LAMB CHOPS
Petite Sirah –Parducci True Grit- Mendocino County
BRAISED SHORT RIBS OF BEEF

SEARED AHI TUNA
Pinot Noir – A to Z Wine Works – Oregon
NEW BEDFORD SCALLOPS
Sauvignon Blanc – Hanna – Russian River Valley
FLEMING’S LOBSTER TEMPURA
Chardonnay – Franciscan -Napa Valley
The two small plates that my husband and I tried were the Scallops and the Lamb Chops. Both of these plates were very yummy! See some pictures in this post of our dishes as well as other dishes. My favorite wine by far that I would choose to pair with any dish was the Petite Sirah – Parducci True Grit from Mendocino County that truly made my mouth water. This wine was luscious and velvety in texture as I swirled it in my mouth and never ending flavors continued to escape. This was luscious and bold with a cherry, oak, and smoky flavor.
Another great deal going on at Fleming’s, which is their Happy Hour is called the, “5 for $6 till 7.” With this deal, you get a choice of 5 different cocktails, 5 wines by the glass, and 5 different appetizers all for $6 each. These are all served at the bar before 7pm. This is a great way to start your evening and it is going on 7 days a week!

What really caught my attention on the menu, Dani, was the COLOSSAL SHRIMP SKEWERS … with chimichurri dipping sauce! I’m so used to seeing chimichurri on meats (as in Argentina), but it sounds like a really interesting combination. (I’ll have to give it a try!) And to pair it with a German pinot gris, brilliant! Thanks for sharing these mouth-watering adventures …
That sounds simply delectable! Great choices! You really cannot go wrong at Fleming’s!:-)
Oh you do leave me drooling my dear! Numeeeeeeeeeeeee I want the shrimp too Sharon!
Loves it! Glad you enjoyed Mama Red!!! 🙂
Since I’m a teetotaler, I would not get much value out of the big pours but those steaks sure sound good. Actually a small plate usually does me just fine. Thanks for sharing.
Thank you for the comment Pat! This place is amazing and thank you for the new word, “teetotaler.” I had to look it up online.:) Never heard that one before
