Stopped here for dinner early Sunday. We only eat outside because of grandchildren. When it started taking everyone could not have been nicer or more accommodating. Food was delicious as added bonus..

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.

Always delicious! Steaks juicy and tender. Best creamed corn. Service is always very good. It is pricey but I have not been to any steak restaurants that aren’t. Flames is our favorite.

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!

Wonderful staff and service. Very nice steakhouse with quality steak. Everything is a la crate and they have a lot of non-steak options too. Loved the tuna appetizer, had a LOT of taste and spice and pepper. Awesome liquor portfolio!

Overall a good steakhouse. In a pandemic it’s tough for all places I am sure. Service was good. Steak was good. A bit undercooked for me but the plate was hot so I was able to get the steak to the right temp. I would go back for sure

Manhattan prices for suburban-level, mediocre meat and a pedestrian wine list. Service was ok, atmosphere was dead (we'll chalk that up to Covid), and, overall, a disappointing experience, especially when weighed against the value vs. the bill. If this is what you expect to spend for a great steak and a true steakhouse experience, do yourself a favor and make the trip to Peter Lugar 's or one of the other fine establishments in NYC. (When they reopen, of course).

Just love it at Flames. We are steakhouse lovers and have been to many, but Flames is definitely on the top of our list. Service is wonderful, food is awesome and we like the fact that it is the perfect size restaurant so noise level is moderate. Looking forward to going back soon!

Very friendly, informative service. Waiter was attentive and helpful, always with a smile. Food was excellent...lobster appy special was huge, drinks were generous. Maybe a little pricey ($300+ with tip for 2), but comparable to other steakhouses in Westchester and Manhattan. Ambience and service made it worth the price, especially for special occasions.

My boyfriend took me to Flames for my birthday back in July. We had such a special experience that I decided to take him back to celebrate his birthday. Once again, Flames did not disappoint. From the atmosphere, to the food, to the service--everything was perfect. I know we're experiencing unprecedented times, but that did not stop Flames' staff from giving us a top notch fine dining experience. As a comparison, we had dinner at BLT Steak in October and it did not meet our expectations. Unlike Flames, BLT did not serve our steak or sides and they lacked fresh sea food and various wines. I'm happy to say that Flames made sure my boyfriend's steak was cooked to perfection, and then proceeded to serve him his steak and our sides. They also have a large variety of cocktails and an extensive wine list. For dinner, I ordered the twin lobster tails (ordered the same back in July) and they were to die for. We will now celebrate all of our special occasions at Flames, and I will continue to recommend their excellent service and impeccable food to all of my friends and family. Thank you, Flames!
