    Disappointing. Had to wait 35 minutes after my reservation time. Poor service. Good food. For the price of the food, expected better service. They didn’t even do anything though we said we were celebrating.

    From the moment we arrived the staff greeted us by wishing us a happy anniversary. We enjoy this restaurant a lot and go often. Chef Dean Fearing came to our table to visit. People throw this term around a lot, but you will not find better food or an enjoyable dining experience anywhere else in the world. Every. Single. Time.

    It took us 20 minutes to see a server and finally order a drink. We ordered apps. They were delicious. They never took our entree order. So we paid and left. We would have loved to have eaten.

    What a wonderful experience. We have never been to this restaurant before, but could not have had a better experience. The environment is beautiful. The Chef came out and talked with us at the table because it was my spouse's birthday. They went over the top with treating her to various specials because it was her birthday. The food was outstanding! I who highly recommend to anyone looking for a 5 star restaurant.

    The food was great but our service was pretty much terrible. Had to wait 20-30 minutes after each course to place our next course order. And dirty dishes were not removed when we finished. Hardly saw the waiter.

    Our other trips to Fearings were always outstanding in every way. The food, service and overall experience has always been tops. They are obviously having current staffing issues. The service was slow with little attention to the details we have come to expect there. The waitstaff seemed rushed and somewhat chaotic. All that said, the food was outstanding as usual and we will be back at some point.

    The food was disappointing for the most part. The lobster tacos starters were so tiny you could not taste any lobster, starter salad was average. We had a steak- ordered medium rare- and it came out quite rare and we had to send it back. Desserts were pretty and stylized but not especially tasty. Best thing was the lemon sorbet offered before dessert…

    I brought my husband to Fearing's for a surprise birthday dinner. To start, our hamachi crudo and oysters "Rockefearing" appetizers were on point. We don't drink alcohol, so our waiter brought us beautiful mocktails from the bar. A splash of soda or sparkling water would have prevented them from being a little on the too sweet side, but the combination of flavors were very nice. For our main course, I had the antelope and my husband had the lamb. Both were amazing, as were the accoutrements! So tender and delicious. Our waiter, Jesus, was friendly and professional - attentive without hovering, and even brought us a complimentary piece of lovely chocolate birthday cake for my husband. The atmosphere is business casual and not stuffy at all, considering the restaurant is in the Ritz-Carlton. A perfect night with divine food, great service, and the best company. Highly recommend.

    Overall very happy with our experience. Food was well-executed; the seared halibut was perfectly prepared and moist throughout. Buffalo tenderloin was grilled to proper temp. I will say the menu prices were very high for comparable offerings, but the service made up for any concerns about value. We would recommend to others for special occasions, date nights, anniversaries, etc.

    I have been coming to Fearings since you opened and have always enjoyed the food and the ambiance. I always felt that it was second to none amongst restaurants in Dallas. However, the last time, and really the last few times, that I have dined at Fearings, I have have been disappointed in the quality of the food as well as the level of service. I hate to be writing this negative review but I felt compelled to do so because I hate to see the normally high level of Fearings slipping.

    As we are new to the area (3months) this was our 3rd time at Fearing’s and it once again did not disappoint. It is a truly world class situation nestled in downtown Dallas. I enjoy the chicken fried lobster and my wife enjoyed her crab cakes and tortillas soup. We’ll be back again for the next set of the chef’s creations!

    best part of dining was Candace our server..super on top of her game..however, had to dine in kitchen room are due to private parties in small rooms and main dining room closed..kitchen area smelled fishy..food is good but absolutely ridiculous prices on Clase Azul tequilas..the reposado for $65/single..highest in all of the fine dining resataurants anywhere. ..every restaurant in Dallas offers a single for $30-$45..plus restaurant forgot one of our sides until I mentioned it..took 15 more minutes before it was brought to table..we were halfway thru meal then..Dean needs to step up..
