I took my grown children here on Saturday Nov 21st,2020 to celebrate our Thanksgiving early due to my being out of town on the holiday. It was absolutely amazing! The food was beyond delicious. The chef sent special goodies to our table throughout the whole meal. I am assuming this was because it was our first time. We had such a great time sampling all the delicious goodies from the kitchen. The drinks were fabulous. The service was outstanding. We will definitely be returning to try the rest of the dishes. The antelope was to die for. The special aged NY Strip that my son ordered was unlike any I have ever tasted across many states and fine dining experiences. The Lone Star Mosaic appetizer was unbelievably delicious. I could go on and on. This is a must try and worth every single penny.

It was elegant and relaxed, the vibe was calming but had a spicy tone. The service was good and we were served by multiple servers. Compliment entries from the different chefs for the occasion was amazing! And it was a a good experience!

Great anniversary dinner! Mr Fearing took very good care of us and personally came by our table multiple times. The Buffalo and filet with fried lobster were stellar! As well as the old fashioned and non alcoholic cocktail the pregnant wife had. Highly recommend.

Everything from the minute we hit the receptionists station to the time we left was exceptional. Everyone was friendly, polite, the ambiance is extremely hip/romantic/upscale. Perfect nite out or celebration spot. There was significant evidence of health and safety precautions during Covid which made us feel great. The food was exceptional. All the little extras they bring throughout the experience where very good. And the server was exceptional as well. Great night, great experience, great food etc. hits all the high points for sure.

They are doing a great job with safety by distancing tables and staff wearing masks. Menu is of course smaller but everything we had was great as usual. Recommend it as a great escape from being at home for weeks.

Starters and drinks tasted fine but we ordered a bunch and it was constantly coming out just warm enough, not cold but it deterred us from ordering a main course or dessert.

Fearing's continues to be among the best restaurant in Dallas. Outstanding service, they do not miss a single detail and Dean's cooking is as good as ever. Fish, steak, wild game - lots of choices on the menu with interesting appetizes and wonderful sides. Desserts are not to be missed. And you can find something from the wine list for your taste and your budget. Just a wonderful special experience. Worth the Drive.

Service was excellent. We ordered their version of Oysters Rockefeller with fried oysters. I ordered the Buffalo Tenderloin and my husband ordered the filet. Presentation was beautiful and we were presented with some complimentary bites. Everything needed more seasoning for my taste. The dessert, which was the deconstructed pecan pie was amazing and the highlight of the meal.

Perhaps simply the best restaurant and best dining experience in Dallas. Food sensational and very creative. Superb service - New appetizer of sashimi and beef carpaccio - colorful, creative and superb; Entrees included red snapper, buffalo, antelope, a variety of steaks and a combination lobster dish. Dean Fearing understands service. They go the extra mile and make the extra effort. Wonderful wine list. Yummy deserts. During one has to be a very difficult time to own or run a restaurant Fearing's stands out among the best in Dallas.
