This is one of the top steakhouses in Westchester County, hands down. Great service, quality steaks. The non-steak (Italian) items are awesome as well. Good cocktails, fast service. Can't go wrong.

Flames Steakhouse restaurant is very nice on the outside. On the inside, it's very dim, and not much atmosphere as other places we're used to. To be a steakhouse, my husband had the filet mignon and it was kind of tough, hard to cut and seems like their food has absolutely no flavor. I had the salmon with garlic mashed potatoes. Completely bland. They said the salmon was wild caught but what a waste of meat and fish for the steak and salmon to be tasteless. A little salt and pepper or seasoning without salt goes a long way. For the prices they charge, nothing we had is worth the price. We ordered the baked clams oreganato and you needed a magnifying glass to find them. You get six but six tiniest clams. Mashed potatoes were nice and creamy but it needed butter, salt and pepper. No taste, not even a hint of garlic. We don't mind paying for good food and ambiance but Flames Steakhouse is not it. That filet mignon should have been melting in your mouth and it was a fight just to cut it. We won't be back although the staff was absolutely great. They were taking plates and silverware before you knew it was gone, filling your glass with water and asking if you wanted another drink. The creme brulee was ok although I've had creamier. The house salad was beautiful and healthy, salad dressing not sure what it was, again not much flavor.

The service was wonderful. Food was very good, but not outstanding. I’d expect more for the price.

We are big fans of Flames. Service always great. Food was delicious as always. Corner table, perfect! It is expensive but no more so than any other steakhouses we’ve been to and definitely much better!

Amazing lunch. I highly recommend. Steak was amazing along with the appetizers. The wait staff is top notch and their recommendations were outstanding. 3 of us shared a porterhouse for 2 and a bone in rib eye! We will be back soon!

Truly disappointed with this place that was touted on a particular Facebook group page. The service was honestly 1 star at the most. When we arrived we were the only patrons at 12:30. The waiter - no greeting, no introduction of himself- just asked brusquely what we wanted to drink. Tap is fine. He came and gave us the water. Then he asked if we wanted anything else to drink -and I proceeded to ask for the wine menu- like how am I going to order any wine w/o looking at your list?? The food was okay- we all ordered some form steak- tomahawk, filet mignon, and another steak.

It was my husband’s birthday, we ordered a chocolate dessert. I mouthed to the waiter to put a candle on the dessert. He came out and brought the dessert with the candle. Sand happy birthday. But no forks! We had to ask for them.

If the waiter was in training (which clearly he should be) it should have been stated in the beginning so I could be understanding. I will say there was another waiter with ours who seemed genuine. I’m usually one to tip 20% but I couldn’t do it.

This place was not busy at all. When we left there were only two other tables with patrons so it wasn’t because of that. I honestly didn’t feel respected and for the price of the food I am also paying for nice service.

Honestly go to the city for better service and food.

Food outstanding as usual. Service not so much. We were ignored several times during our dinner. Waited very long for someone to take our order. Were never offered more bread, had to ask for water. I went to the front desk to voice my concerns and service was a bit better after that. We took family there and it was their first time. Doubt they will return. Disappoibting service but great food.

We were treated very well. The staff were helpful and constant. The dinner was as good as any steakhouse we have been at. From Flemings to Ruth’s or Shula’s.it was as expensive but a very homey touch. The owner was on site and stopped by several times to check on us. We loved the ambiance .

The entire experience was very disappointing.
The best part is the ambiance and the bread,
My friend and I ordered the ribeye. In a steakhouse when I’m paying $65 for a steak I expect it to be cooked perfectly, served perfectly and taste delicious. I ordered mine medium rare it came out medium. The server was putting slices in my plate and one almost ended up in my lap. The steak was just not that tender.
There were 4 of us and they bring out 3 entrees with sides. Who does that? Bring out all 4 entrees then sides. We had to wait and ask twice for the fourth.
They play background music much too loud you can’t have a conversation.
Tables for 4 are much to small to fit dishes, steak platters, side dishes, glasses making for an uncomfortable experience.

Great evening out celebrating a HS graduation. The porterhouse for two was done very well as well as the 16oz Lobster tail. The appetizers were on point, Oysters Rockefeller, French onion soup and burrata. Shared a bottle of Moet. The weather prevented us from dinning outside. a bit pricy but well worth the evening out.

This is the second time we have been to Flames and the first time we ate indoors. The food, especially the steak and the appetizers, are really good. The restaurant was, for me, too loud, and the prices on the sides were too high.

Found Flames on Open Table and with a rating of 4.6/5 I thought it was worth a try. Boy, was I wrong. The staff was friendly and attentive but that is where the good ends. We were
Two couples that order the Tomahawk Steak for two. No prices were disclosed for the special menu item and while it was our fault for NOT asking, it was the worst steak I have ever tried to consume. It was almost all fat and the meat that was there which was supposed to be cooked medium was more like medium rare. The outside was overly charred. If I consumed 5 bites it was a lot. The cost for each steak was $170!!!!! Overpriced is an UNDERSTATEMENT!!! The sides were marginal and the desserts were nothing to write home about. We would have done better at Outback.

Waiters try to upsell everything. Too many waiters and no one knows what any one else is doing. Ordered drinks before dinner, got them when we finished. Was told our “special”
Tomahawk steak was $130...it was $165 and when questioned , our waiter said he never checks prices when he goes out and “what do you want me to do, take the difference out of my own pocket”. Unprofessional servers. Dessert was like a cart from the 80s....basic and boring and not fresh. Our COLD Caesar salad (tasteless) was served on HOT plates. Would never recommend this place and wish I never went! Total waste of money and time! Awful!
