    I went to dinner at Fearing’s last night to celebrate my sisters birthday. Not only was the waiter rude when we sat down but he refused to bring out a birthday candle with the dessert. I was disappointed to say the least with the service and treatment from the waiter. We were nice customers, ordered appetizers and four entrees, and two desserts. Although we are young to dine there, he had no right to be as rude, misogynistic, and condescending as he was.

    It's hard to beat Fearings when choosing restaurants in the Dallas, Texas area. The service is top-notch from the waiters to the sommelier. I ordered the lamb dish and while I did have to send it back to be cooked a little more, it was delicious. The banana pudding dessert was possibly the best I've ever had in my life. You pay for the experience (it's definitely not inexpensive) yet I'd say it's worth it.

    Everything was Awful The portions were small and cooked incorrectly. The wait staff was very proficient or attentive. The descriptions of the food were misleading and everything was spicy for no real reason. I would not advise anyone to waste money at this restaurant.

    Gavin and Michael were an absolute dream team of service all night! Highly recommend every single plate that is served at the restaurant and any little free gift being passed around by the kitchen is bound to surprise you and wish it was a dish at the restaurant. Overall a 100/10 stars!

    Everything was superb except that they didn’t celebrate my husband’s birthday. I had noted it on the reservation, and several folks acknowledged him upon greeting us. But as other guests were being celebrated with a special dessert, candles, song, etc., they did nothing for my husband. They did make a nice attempt to rectify things by sending us home with a bottle of wine and offer of free desserts on our next visit. That was appreciated but it would have been more special if they’d celebrated my husband like they did those around us.

    The food was amazing! We started with the tortilla soup and I had the grouper and my husband had the ribeye. The grouper with the risotto may have been the best meal I've ever had. The steak was cooked to perfection. The side mushrooms were delectable. We also enjoyed the banana pudding and the beignets were scrumptious! The ambiance was great but our favorite part was Dean walking around and greeting his guests! Really set apart our dining experience!

    We had a very nice work dinner. The restaurant was only moderately busy on a Wednesday night. We got the pleasure of talking with Dean Fearing when he visited our table. He was genuine and welcoming and made great recommendations for what to get. All of us got the Achiote Glazed Broken Arrow Ranch Nilgai Antelope which was phenomenal. I started my meal with Texas Wagyu Beef Carpaccio and I could not have been happier. Our serving team was fantastic! Everything about the meal was perfect. I can’t wait to go back.
