    Service was amazing, always were respectful and quick. Food was okay and honestly made me feel a little sick after the meal. Price for the lamb was way too high for what was received. Plus it was overcooked. Appetizers were great though.

    Was our anniversary date night. We were seated very promptly, and the staff were all very kind and clear to us throughout the meal. The food was some of the best we’ve ever had. I’s highly recommend giving Fearing’s a visit if you find yourself in the Dallas area and want to treat yourself and your loved one(s) to a fantastic dinner meal.

    We visited Fearing’s 5 or 6 years ago and I’m so sorry we waited so long to go back. What a wonderful experience. This visit was to celebrate our daughter’s 21st birthday and it was completely up to our expectations. The food and drink was amazing, the sommelier provided great information and recommendations on the wine, and the ambiance for the event was perfect. The only area that maybe wasn’t quite as impeccable as we expected was the service. Our server was fine and did a good job, but he just wasn’t as personable or attentive as we typically expect and receive when dropping $900+ for a party of 4. Nonetheless, we will definitely be back and we won’t wait 5+ years before we return.

    This was by far the worst experience we have ever had a Ritz Carlton. We had drinks at the bar and were asked to leave due to the bar tables being reserved for an event. We were told we could go to the patio and heaters would be on and they weren’t. We had to ask for them to be turned on. There was no wit staff on the patio and this was the beginning of an awful evening. It was for NYE so it was price fixed and a set menu. For the price we paid we expected better service and better food, our waiter only came to the table to serve us. They got our orders wrong and when we asked for more champagne the only served us half a glass. The food was Luke warm and it seemed like we were being served cruise line food. The lava cake was ice cold. Totally dissatisfied with our experience. Expected much more than we received. Needless to say we will not be returning

    The food is absolutely spectacular. We started with the Oysters rock a fearing. Delightful! Our entrees were the antelope served with a rabbit mole taco and the beef filet and chicken fried lobster served with a spinach enchilada. Both were simply fantastic. We finished it off with the banana pudding served with beignets. Also spectacular. Our waiter was what created the loss of star. He was too busy and seemed to be in a hurry for everything. He asked if we wanted time to look at the menu and we said yes. He was back in less than a minute. Then we ordered the appetizer and before it was even delivered he wanted our entree order. Everything felt rushed for no apparent reason. Our reservation was 7:30 and we were completed with desert by 8:30. I had expected to be there at least 90 minutes and didn't love the rushed feeling. I noticed other waiters had a more laid back vibe to them and also noticed our waiter was working a very large group in a private dining room shortly after he started with us. I think he was pressured and we could feel it. I would return again simply based on the food. When out for fine dining, the experience is just as important last he food. As a side note, Dean Fearing did make the round and visit each table and that was a cool experience!

    Well, the highlight was having Dean come around to each table to ensure everyone was enjoying themselves. I found the food to be difficult versus comforting. I travel all over the world and eat it really nice establishment. It’s just nice to have the simple things as choices on the menu Over priced for what you get. The cocktails over priced under wowed. Had two servers. One of the servers was very attentive. The other server was overwhelmed wasn’t as friendly and inviting but he meant well was an anniversary celebration. I love being with my husband while we were staying at the Ritz Carlton for the weekend next year, redo the Ritz Carlton, but not the restaurant.

    I was very disappointed by the table we were given even tho the restaurant was half empty. The service wasn’t at its best. It was almost as if the servers didn’t want to be at work. It took forever to get our food (was very cold) and our drinks (that were watered down from the ice melting) I usually have a great experience here but it’s getting worse and worse every time I return.
