This La Jolla location of Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar is conveniently nestled into the Aventine shopping center, adjacent to the Hyatt Regency courtyard. They serve up some of the finest USDA prime beef, which can be ordered wet or dry-aged, broiled or iron-crusted. These choice cuts can then be topped with truffle-poached lobster, diablo shrimp or king crab with caviar. The steaks pair elegantly with their award winning collection of 100 wines by the glass, all of which are thoughtfully curated during a twelve-month tasting process. Its flare for fine dining makes Fleming’s a popular place for a date night and they also offer a private dining experience for intimate get-togethers and events upon reservation.
