We have historically liked Fearing’s however the Thanksgiving Day menu was disappointing. Our family of 5 barely touched the food. Very disappointing.

My dear friend lost her home in the tornado. I was looking for a quiet place to sit and reflect over a good lunch and was looking for a calm escape (treat) for her in advance of her upcoming birthday and Thanksgiving. It wasn’t very busy and we visited with our server and had the best conversation. We enjoyed not only fabulous food but a restorative recharge during a crazy time.

Fearing’s has always been a favorite of mine but this visit was very much of a disappointment. Service here is usually top notch but our waiter was so-so and did absolutely nothing to make our special occasion the least bit special. The gem salad I ordered wasn’t worth $14 and much worse than you get at a chain restaurant. The lobster bisque didn’t have much lobster but a lot of bisque. The entrees were just okay but no WOW that you expect from a this level of restaurant. There are so many great restaurants in Dallas and this one appears to be complacent. We won’t be coming back.

We loved our evening at Fearing’s. The food was amazing and the wine was a perfect match. The only glitz was we checked in and was told to wait. We ordered two wines and sat down. Twenty minutes later, we caught a waiter and had him check on our table. He came straight back and said our the desk had sent a text ten minutes ago. It’s very noisy in the bar waiting area so I never heard the text.

Chicken fried LOBSTER. Are you kidding me!!! This, served with a prime beef filet....heavenly! Can't even imagine how Dean & Co. come up with the outrageous offerings on the menu. Goal: have em all! Off-the-chart service from Michael and Brett. Memorable birthday dinner for my bride. Thanks!

This is a beautiful restaurant in the Ritz Carlton Hotel. My husband and I had eaten here before. We were celebrating two birthdays, our oldest son and a daughter in law, both with November birthdays. Everyone was excited to be here.
My only missing star was for my meal only and I can say that perhaps I didn't read the menu thoroughly as the lamb caught my attention. However, I was disappointed in the cassoulet and sausage part. BUT, I shared the oysters with my husband and really enjoyed them. I would be tempted to order that for a main course with a bowl of soup (you can see I am mentally planning another dinner). Our children loved what they ordered, several having the filets, one the fish, and another the quail.

Fearing's, located inside of the Ritz Carlton in Dallas, was an incredible dining experience.

The dining area is attached to an active bar area, but situated so that the bar crowd does not interfere with the casual dining experience.

The staff's friendly and attentive demeanor were over the top. This gives you the feeling of genuine hospitality.

Lastly, the food quality is amazing. Chef visited our table and was genuinely interested in our opinion of the entire culinary experience.

I highly recommend a visit to Fearing's if you're in the Dallas area.

It was our first time dining there. The folks at the hotel were very helpful showing us to the reception desk. They were very courteous and sat us right away. We even had the honor of meeting the Chef when he stopped by our table to see if everything was to our liking. We highly recommend Fearing's to anyone looking to have a quiet night with an amazing meal.

I always enjoy a night at Fearings. The service is always top notch and the food never disappoints. This recent night I was a bit underwhelmed with my steak for the first time. I had ordered a prime rib that just had some really tough tendons and what felt like excess fat. I don’t fault the staff for this, but I usually don’t have that issue. I also had requested more of those spiced cornbread muffins, was promised more, yet unfortunately didn’t receive any. I really don’t like to give the staff a hard time, so I thought I’d voice this here. I love you guys and I’ll be back another time for sure.

The whole look of the restaurant is great. Would recommend for dates or couples not good for really big parties. Food and service was amazing. Towards the end they took a bit bringing out the bill but the place was pretty full. Really good wine selection. Overall a great experience.
