A word from Fearing's
*Please note, Fearing's Restaurant will not be participating in the 2014 Restaurant Week.
Fearing’s Restaurant is located within The Ritz-Carlton, Dallas in the vibrant Uptown neighborhood. The restaurant has received countless accolades since opening, including being recognized as No. 1 in Hotel Dining by the Zagat U.S. Hotels, Resorts, and Spas Survey. Its continued recognition can largely be attributed to the lively personality and flavorful menus of its creator - Chef Dean Fearing. With his “Elevated American Cuisine – Bold Flavors, No Borders”, Fearing has created an indoor/outdoor culinary experience that is like no other in Dallas. The bold flavors of Fearing’s can be savored in specialties such as the Tortilla Soup, Barbecued Shrimp Taco and Maple-Black Peppercorn Soaked Buffalo Tenderloin. An array of rare premium tequilas, Dean’s Margaritas, and nearly 6,000 bottles of boutique and rare-vintage wines can be enjoyed within the restaurant and it's lively Rattlesnake Bar. Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "The food is consistently excellent at Fearing's. I have never tasted better prepared halibut. The service is always outstanding."
    Dined on 8/18/2014
  • "First time at Fearings and I must say WOW! The service was amazing - thanks Andrew! The food was nothing like I have had in Dallas. I would highly recommend the buffalo tenderloin and the antelope. 5 starts and will definitely be coming back soon."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "It is very notable that Mr. Fearing is a standing classic and that his restaurant represents creativity, authenticity, and amazing flavors! Every forkful more than satisfied our palates beyond what we could ever imagine! Every item had its own eclectic feature surrounded by flavor and freshness, enticing and exotic, topped off with distinctive yumminess! A one of a kind experience, that included a beautiful restaurant setting. The staff was knowledgeable, polite and eager to please and always made sure the best was always on our table. Fearing's could be an addiction as it left us weak in the knees, wanting more, but not taking away what we had already devoured!"
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "Yes, it's the Ritz Carlton. That comes with a certain set of expectations. The restaurant exceeds them all. World-renown chef and inventive food that will literally make you feel decadent. Put this on your Dallas food bucket list."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "A trip to Fearings for a special occasion is just a memorable dining experience. The restaurant was buzzing with activity; yet the service was impeccable and the food outstanding. They can handle any special request, including diet or food allergy concerns, virtually on the fly. We were celebrating a birthday and they made it special. Excellent food, good wine, great service - a wonderful evening."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "I have been to Fearing's a number of times. As always the experience was excellent. The new changes to the menu were tasty and the wine list was extensive. Dessert was sinful."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "Our service was amazing! I ate oysters, snapper, & the banana pudding... OMG! Everything was wonderful!"
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "Great atmosphere and wait staff always very attentive. But the reason to go here is the food. Fav appetizer is the barbeque fried oysters!!! You can never go wrong with any dish."
    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "Have been looking forward to eating at Fearings after move from the Mansion. Expectations were high. Appetizers were good. Mains were good as well. Chicken fried lobster batter was gummy. Signature bone in ribeye was tough. The item that stood out was the fried asparagus. The wine service was incredible. Perfect pairings. Dessert was perfect. Service was attentive. Atmosphere was relaxing, comfortable and up-scale."

  • "Pick another night. Well below their usual standards.,"
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "Have been in Dallas multiple times and never occurred to me to eat right downstairs. Normally prefer to get out of the hotel and know the city but what a mistake. Some of the best dishes I ever had are right there. If you like foie gras, it doesn't get any better. They are known for the tortilla soup and its well deserved. Steak was one of the best I ever had and the chicken fried lobster is delicious. Staff is friendly and professional, service was excellent."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "food was really good although overpriced, but I tried to order a sazerac for a drink. The waiter had no idea what it was and it came out in the wrong glass and was not the correct drink. Kind of surprising for a place of this caliber."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "Great combinations , foods you wouldn't think to pair together are delightful . Taking a chance on things you wouldn't normally think to try pays off ! I am picky. I eat at a lot of very fine places and rather not eat unless it is good. It definatly was worth eating."
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "I took my sister to Fearing's for her birthday and she loved it. The food and wine were great and the service is just the right mix of attentive yet unobtrusive."
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "Marvelous summer menu. Everything beyond delicious."
    Dined on 7/31/2014
  • "I was not happy with the service and the way we were treated. Manager explained to me they were not able to keep up because they were so busy but over half the restaurant was empty. Waited an hour to receive the first drinks. Bar was ok."
    Dined on 7/28/2014
  • "We went with a group of 10 for my girlfriend's birthday brunch. We had no problem getting seated promptly, and the restaurant never seemed extremely crowded. The service was a little spotty for an establishment of this level, but we did have a large group. We made a point of sampling as many things from the menu as possible, and everything was delicious. Helpful pointer: the brunch portions are actually quite large for both appetizers and main dishes; we over-ordered, assuming haute cuisine mini-portions. I would highly recommend for brunch."
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "The food and service are always both fantastic! It's also a treat when Dean Fearing comes out of the kitchen to say hello to his customers!! Fabulous restaurant!!"

  • "The personal touches are what makes the dinning experience so great here"

  • "Truly outstanding restaurant --- they pay attention to the small details and the food is outstanding"
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "From Dean himself rounding tables to the exquisite plating this place hit it out of the park for my wife and I. For our anniversary we got a card and a piece of wedding cake that was thoughtful. We will be back if not just for the carpacio and a drink. The only thing is the drink (non-wine) menu is a little short so come knowing what you want to drink."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Fearing's exceeded or matched every expectation I had prior to dining at the restaurant. The only downside was not being seated on time, but Rida offered us a couple of glasses of Champaign (complementary) while we were waiting. The food was exceptional, and the service was great without being intrusive. I highly recommend Fearing's, and I will definitely be back. If you don't feel like having a full dinner, and you want to have a drink and a couple of appetizers, I recommend the inside bar area, and the outside patio. It is great for people watching too."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "We went to Fearings for an anniversary dinner with our family. Setting was beautiful and Chef Fearing greeted us at our table(very charming). The somm was incredibly nice and knowledgeable and suggested two stellar bottles. The appetizers were each amazing(trio of lobster taco,short rib enchilada, and crab cake) tortilla soup, lobster bisque, fried oysters. All just incredible. The entrees were not so much. We all tried different items and the bone rib eye(too much sauce),lamb(too many weird sauces), buffalo tenderloin. All just not good. The halibut entree was the only one that was good. Given the prices there were highlights bot not enough. If I did it again, I would order a bowl of tortilla soup and an appetizer and called it a night."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "Fearings is always consistently excellent. Highly recommend."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "We made reservations to celebrate our anniversary . The waiters were not very attentive. They placed our dinner menus in front of us, then asked if we wanted a drink. I had to ask for the wine list 3 times. They seemed to be "checked out" -it was like they did not even hear me. One waiter interrupted our conversation twice. The shirts the waiters were wearing looked like they had been washed one too many times and were ill fitting. This experience did not live up to what I consider to be a 5 star restaurant. I will say the carpaccio was delicious. Our friends ordered the beef with the corn pudding and the corn pudding was actually burned - this is unacceptable for this restaurant."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "The food and ambience of Fearing's is fantastic! Dean Fearing came to our table to make sure all was well, and the chicken-fried lobster with filet was a lovely pairing. I highly recomend this restaurant."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "My wife and I had an Anniversary dinner at Fearing's. This was an amazing dinner the food was perfect and the wait staff was great. Chef Fearing came out to the table and spoke with us which was an added bonus. The choice of food is something you can't get an any other restaurant which makes this an even better spot. The other added bonus was the staff would bring samples to your table to try. I would highly recommend this to anyone."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "We have been to Fearings's numerous times and the food was as good as always. We had the tasting menu, which always has innovative fare. Our only complaint was the service was off from their normal excellent standard. Drinks ordered arrived during the first course instead of before. It seemed that they weren't quite organized. However the food was excellent and we will go again."

  • "As usual, everything was perfect! Every bite was delicious!"

  • "When Dean Fearing himself is making sure you are taken care of is there really much else you can ask for!? Perfect 5 star experience again."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "We lived in Dallas for over 35 years , recently retiring into the trees of east Texas. On a whim we decided to treat ourselves to a night in the city and to dinner at Fearing. What a special surprise to have the Chef himself stop by the table , not once but twice during our dinner. The iconic dishes such as the tortilla soup were certainly outstanding, as were the featured main courses, Halibut and also the Lamb Chop with the grilled Shrimp with curry sauce. Service was better than anywhere we have experienced in years. Atmosphere was vibrant and alive with activity and energy. I've been all over the world and would be hard pressed to remember a better more satisfying evening."

  • "We celebrated our twentieth anniversary at Fearings. They went above and beyond to make our celebration special."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "The scallops and halibut were perfect. The tortilla soup is a Dean Fearing staple and outstanding as always. We always appreciate Chef Fearing's visits to the diners' tables - something all chef's should do, but most don't."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "To get a true taste of what Texas cooking is all about, Fearing's has to be on your must list to visit. The flavors of the many components that compris a single dish are perfectly balanced and embody Texas' rich history. The "no dress code" policy maintains the Texas vibe, but nobody looked like they just came in from the pool. It's classy, not stuffy. The hardest part will be choosing what to order, so plan in advance to come back, because you will."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "I chose Fearing's for a special Birthday dinner for my boyfriend and his daughter. Visited the restaurant many times and it was always perfect. This visit the food was not good. 3 of our party of 4 chose a Sea Bass Entree that was extremely OVERCOOKED and not edible. Our server was very unavailable and we had an extreme language barrier issue. I won't be dining there again soon. So disappointed."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "If you live in Dallas, you know Fearing's is amazing. If you're visiting, you must come by and visit. I have yet to meet someone who is legitimately disappointed with an experience at Fearing's. Dean is amazing with his food, presentation, and service. Even when he's not there, the restaurant turns out five star service every time."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "The actual menu at the restaurant was different than listed on the website. When I made the reservation, there were some dishes that I really wanted to try from what was on the website. So, a little disappointed when I got there. My husband's entre was great-- the butternut squash taquito plate. But, I was disappointed with my orchiette pasta dish. It was bland and flavorless. The desserts were excellent"
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "We've been many times but this last visit was a complete wreck. We were sat in uncomfortable benches near a large party when the dining room was sparse. The waiter had no wine knowledge & the Somm apparently had just left. We ordered in 3 courses but the first 2 came out together. When we sent the 2nd one back, it just sat in the window & then was still ran out before we were done with the 1st. The entrees came out immediately as well but were sloppy. Our prawns were raw so we asked our waiter for cooked ones. They overcooked the ones we sent back & then came charred & overcooked. All food was bland & lukewarm. The mgr & waiter apologized for the poor food & comped our apps & dessert. Still very Underwhelming dinner. Very disappointed."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "We always enjoy going to Fearing's we want a nice night out. It is relaxing (especially in the back room that is joined to the kitchen). The food was excellent as usual and everyone was very attentive. We went outside to the outdoor bar and spent a very pleasant evening with a after dinner cup of coffee."
