Overall a truly wonderful experience. All of the diners were spaced out in accordance with social distancing requirements and the noise level was quiet. There was a wonderful ambience and nice music playing in the background. The staff was absolutely amazing. My daughter is gluten free and they were extremely amenable to any changes that needed to be made. An absolutely amazing dining experience from beginning to end.

For the price per person for the Thanksgiving dinner of $125 each, the food was terrible! It was dried out turkey that appeared to have been served up since morning and just reheated for dinner. Both myself and my mother barely touched our food because it was so bad and we told our server about it but he never acknowledged nor did he report to the manager. We paid over $400 for 3 meals that tasted awful! We also had to pay $15 for parking and there was no validation at restaurant even after spending that amount of money!

Our Thanksgiving meal was exquisite. This was our second time dining at Fearing’s. The meal on our first visit consisted of items off the menu. Thanksgiving had a special menu with four choices each the first two courses. The Butternut Squash soup with pomegranate kernels, pheasant and Creme fraiche was a warm comforting first course. If only I could recreate the well rounded flavors at home. The crispy crust of the fried quail with melt in your mouth corn pudding and blackberry sauce led you to dive in for subsequent bites, wanting to lick the plate clean.
Our second course consisted of turkey, tortilla dressing, and mashed potatoes accented by cranberry relish, gravy with a southwestern flair and the green beans were masterfully executed leaving the flavors zinging in your mouth. Chef Fearing’s flavor combinations are modern and unique while filling the expectations of a turkey dinner.
I was ecstatic to find the dessert course to be a sampler with chocolate pecan pie, pumpkin tart and apple caramel pudding. The pumpkin tart was the best pumpkin pie we have ever had in our entire lives. The pumpkin flavor was the star accented with delicate spices and whipped cream.
We will definitely return to Fearing’s for a special occasion dinner as well as regular date night meals.

I took my grown children here on Saturday Nov 21st,2020 to celebrate our Thanksgiving early due to my being out of town on the holiday. It was absolutely amazing! The food was beyond delicious. The chef sent special goodies to our table throughout the whole meal. I am assuming this was because it was our first time. We had such a great time sampling all the delicious goodies from the kitchen. The drinks were fabulous. The service was outstanding. We will definitely be returning to try the rest of the dishes. The antelope was to die for. The special aged NY Strip that my son ordered was unlike any I have ever tasted across many states and fine dining experiences. The Lone Star Mosaic appetizer was unbelievably delicious. I could go on and on. This is a must try and worth every single penny.

Great anniversary dinner! Mr Fearing took very good care of us and personally came by our table multiple times. The Buffalo and filet with fried lobster were stellar! As well as the old fashioned and non alcoholic cocktail the pregnant wife had. Highly recommend.

Everything from the minute we hit the receptionists station to the time we left was exceptional. Everyone was friendly, polite, the ambiance is extremely hip/romantic/upscale. Perfect nite out or celebration spot. There was significant evidence of health and safety precautions during Covid which made us feel great. The food was exceptional. All the little extras they bring throughout the experience where very good. And the server was exceptional as well. Great night, great experience, great food etc. hits all the high points for sure.

They are doing a great job with safety by distancing tables and staff wearing masks. Menu is of course smaller but everything we had was great as usual. Recommend it as a great escape from being at home for weeks.

Starters and drinks tasted fine but we ordered a bunch and it was constantly coming out just warm enough, not cold but it deterred us from ordering a main course or dessert.

Fearing's continues to be among the best restaurant in Dallas. Outstanding service, they do not miss a single detail and Dean's cooking is as good as ever. Fish, steak, wild game - lots of choices on the menu with interesting appetizes and wonderful sides. Desserts are not to be missed. And you can find something from the wine list for your taste and your budget. Just a wonderful special experience. Worth the Drive.
