    As always, the food preparation, attention to detail, and flavor were top-notch. The service, while taxed a little due to the busy Mother’s Day crowd, was professional, courteous, and engaged with the guests.

    Our overall experience was great. Even when my wife’s order was incorrect they got it corrected and good amount of time. What got me was how everyone one was apologetic to her. The staff goes out of their way to show that they care. Since it was Mother’s Day the place was very busy to say the least. The food was exceptional and the atmosphere was perfect. Would recommend to anyone.

    After waiting 30 minutes for valet to park us we then waited 30 minutes to put in drink order. Had to flag down staff to order food after 45 minutes and were finally served entree after being in restaurant for 2 hours. Ridiculous to charge that amount of money for that type of service. Limit the amount of people who attend or hire the right amount of staff.

    I was expecting a fine dining experience. Really good food and a very nice setting. However, the whole experience was average. Food was as any regular American restaurant, the restaurant itself was as an office lunch place, and the price was same or higher than other very nice restaurants in Dallas. I wouldn’t return unless I’m staying at the hotel and need something quick. It’s okay. Wouldn’t book it as a nice place to go.

    We came for a brunch and there were NO breakfast items available. 50% of the menu was vegetarian and the other half was heavy lunch/dinner. Half of the term “brunch” is breakfast and in Mothers Day with children please have SOMETHING breakfast oriented.

    I recently had a delightful dining experience at Fearing’s restaurant with my mother and my son. The ambiance was warm and inviting, creating the perfect setting for a family meal. We all ordered steaks, and each one was cooked to perfection, exactly to our preferred temperatures. The flavors were exquisite, and the service was impeccable. Fearing’s truly made our evening special, and we look forward to our next visit!

    I was surprisingly disappointed. I’m all for paying higher end prices for a great meal but there was nothing that we had that tasted good enough to come back. Out of a party of 6, one enjoyed their food. Restaurants don’t want you to come once, the need you to come back and back again. We won’t be. Tack onto that the need to pay $15 for parking. No thanks, there’s too many restaurants where I don’t have to pay to park and will be much more satisfied.

    THe cocktails were fantastic including the Fearing Old Fashioned. The food was mediocre except for the pork Osso Buco. The pork was excellent. The sampler platter and the shrimp taco were less than mediocre. Don't ever order a sampler platter. The Caesar salad was drenched in dressing and very salty. Maybe try the other salad on the menu. The wait staff and their team were excellent. What bothered me was paying $15 to park for dinner. It should be free to restaurant customers. Then when you go to pay, they make sure you have to deal with the valet not the person at the pay window. You give them a $20 bill for the $15 parking fee and they tell you to give it to the valet with the valet ticket. Really? That is not cool. I would go for cocktails again but not for food.

    There was hardly anyone in the restaurant and service was slow and ‘off.’ Also the tortilla soup was good like usual, but the homemade pasta was distorted and the preparation soggy in some areas and al dente in others — seemed weird and not what you would expect of Dean Fearing. We often go to Fearing’s and stay at the Ritz or use spa services. This was an off day for Fearings and I’ve never before had an off day at Fearings.

    I never tire of the warm, lush and inviting space. The consistency of the service and cuisine do not disappoint. On this evening I had the sampler appetizer which is so great because it enables you to experience multiple tasty treats and for my entree, the antelope was simply outstanding. My wife went with the beef filet which had the perfectly wood-smoked flavor and was grilled to perfection. I’m not a dessert guy but we shared Fearing’s version of the carrot cake which did not disappoint. After all of these years Dean and his team have kept his namesake restaurant going strong. We will have to return soon as I’m already craving that antelope again.
