We expected a nice dining experience. We were seated and waited about 10 minutes before a server came to our table. He gave us water and left. A different server came over and said, “What will you have?” There was no welcome or any introduction. We ordered our meal and what we thought were pre-meal beverages. No wine list was offered. About 3 minutes later our first course comes out. No beverage. We did notice diners walking in and out carrying bloody marys and mimosas. We had ordered a Bloody Mary and a mimosa by the way thinking they would come before our meal. At this point we were becoming unhappy. A server came to give us water and we told her what was wrong. After asking, we were then told about drinks outside as well as dessert. The day was quickly going downhill. We were all unhappy and the staff knows about this. I’ve spent enough time on it.

The food was delicious. We had the steak with deep fried lobster-marvelous. We were celebrating our anniversary which was noted by the serving staff. We received a small pretty raspberry cake from the restaurant.
Service was attentive but never intrusive.
The margaritas were delicious-but we were shocked by the price-$48 for 2 margaritas!!!!
When we expressed our dismay, they were comp’d. A nice gesture!

We had a terrific dinner at Fearing’s to celebrate our wedding anniversary. They gave us a complimentary dessert with Happy Anniversary written on it! I had the Buffalo filet and the shrimp taco. My husband had the Waygu beef filet and Tortilla soup. Everything was excellent!

Came for our birthday and anniversary dinner with my wife: Everyone that greeted us was super friendly and very cordial. Food was excellent. Everything had great flavor. Wife had the scallops and she loved them. I had the buffalo tenderloin which was delicious. We also had the Foie Gras creme brûlée which was really good. We were treated to two desserts for our occasions. Over all great experience. Will definitely be back.

Went for a special occasion with my father and his friend. We booked a quiet table in the gallery room. Food was good but the mains are perhaps too “complicated” for each ingredient to shine. Our wait recommenced a fanatic bottle of red that he was willing to pour a couple glasses rather than needing to get the full bottle as we did not want to drink too much. But it was so good I decided to keep the whole bottle. Overall a great experience. Pricey as expected. Beautiful dining room.

I may recommend but with hesitation. Our initial waiter was distracted. I was only after Jimmy started taking care of us that the service jumped to a level expected.

The food was pretty good but several of the dishes were somewhat greasy.

We went for our anniversary and the service was the best part of our experience. The staff was welcoming and very attentive. They went out of their way to make sure the occasion was special. The food was just ok. The steak was the best part - and the dessert was decadent.

The negatives: Iwould highly suggest staying out of the main dining room - the noise from other tables and the bar was annoying. Additionally, while we chose to dress up some for the occasion, others were dressed much more casual (one couple showed up in workout attire - she was in a jog bra). The food was good in some respects, but much more adventuresome (I guess?) than my palate. Rosemary in my drink and some spice I just couldn’t tolerate in the spinach enchilada turned me off immensely. My husband didn’t care for his fish (dry and bland).

Thankful for cheaper (and better) options for dining out in Dallas.

Fearing’s continues to be one of our favorite restaurants in Dallas. The service was excellent as usual. I had the fried quail appetizer with pork belly fried rice and it was unbelievable. Fried oysters were amazing. Cannot beat this restaurant for a nice meal out.

Fearings has done a great job elevating the overall dining experience. The service is choreographed liked a well tuned orchestra, seemingly hitting every note right on time and in tune. With surprise bites, starter, breads, main, and desert, each course is presented on a precise timeline that gives you intimate moments throughout the experience to enjoy your time together. Dean Fearing also takes the time to come out and work the room, a truly classic move in a time when most celebrity chefs are satisfied with having their name on the sign and reserve personal encounters for only a select few of their diners. Not Dean, every table throughout the entire restaurant.

Fearing's continues to be the best restaurant experience in DFW. The food is unequaled and very unique. This is the place you take clients or potential clients and/or your significant other for special meals (to celebrate anniversaries, birthdays, business successes, graduations, or other events requiring a memorable experience). My wife and I love this place and, while we thoroughly enjoy many other DFW restaurants, this is our go to SPECIAL PLACE. I took clients there most recently on April 4 and everything about the meal was spectacular (and that is an understatement).

A little disappointed with the temp of one steak. Ordered well done, but came out uneven. Well on half and medium rare on the other half. Very odd. Server responded appropriately and comped the meal.

Fro the moment we stepped into the Ritz Carlton, we were escorted to the restaurant and told how they had been expecting us. Such very special treatment, that continued throughout the evening. Being our first time, it far exceeded our expectations and quite honestly, I don't know why we haven't gone sooner. The food is unbelievable quality and amazing flavor; the presentation was impeccable and stunning from the beginning to the end. They served us a "pre-salad" which was delightful and unexpected, as well as, the "pre-dessert" which was so very special. It was my husband's birthday, so they surprised him with a special chocolate dessert which was amazing and a total surprise. We also ordered the Banana mouse egg which is the most incredible thing I've ever seen...when it came, it was so elegant and we gasped, wondering how we would even eat this beautiful piece of dessert art. It was as delicious as it was beautiful...which is sometimes not the case when art meets food. To top it all off, Dean Fearing came around to each table and made you feel extra special. He is a total delight, very easy to visit with and just topped the night off. FYI, my husband said his steak was the best steak he has ever had, and he's had a lot! It was an amazing and unhurried experience. Such a special night!!

We were initially seated at a table with an icy draft coming from the AC. The staff was helpful in moving us to a more comfortable table. The service was friendly and unobtrusive. The new Spring menu was distinctive and somewhat ambitious. For the most part, it succeeded with the red snapper and the buffalo w/ polenta. However, the lamb chops were unusually tough and needed more seasoning. The atmosphere was convivial and the meals were pleasing. A very nice evening.
