From the hostess stand, to their gift of truffles to us before leaving, this was the best meal experience at a restaurant, my family and I have had in years! Both the food and service were impeccable! There's nothing more I could say other than you need to experience Fearings for yourself.

From the time of arrival to departure Fearing's went above and beyond to cater to our group. Wonderful service, incredible food and an engaged visit from Chef Fearing himself. I would encourage anyone looking for a wonderful dinner, atmosphere, and experience to make a reservation and enjoy the time!

I decided on Fearing's for an anniversary dinner with my girlfriend and I could not be happier. Chef Fearing greeted us on our way to our table and came by several more times throughout the evening. He's extremely personable and easy to talk to, and it was such a nice touch. We had the Red Currant BBQ Glazed Lockhart Quail (~$18) as an appetizer and it was absolutely delicious. We both chose the Sherman Texas Wagyu Beef Filet and Chicken Fried Maine Lobster (~$56) as our entree, and once again it was delicious. For dessert we went with the banana pudding with toasted meringue (~$10). If you're looking for a nice place for an anniversary, Valentine's, etc., and you've got the money to spend, I highly recommend Fearing's.

Excellent food, I had lamb and my wife the filet. Both were cooked perfectly. Service was on point. Could have maybe gotten a little more help from the sommelier. We didn’t have anything that we didn’t love. We will definitely be back.

Fearings continues to be one of Dallas' finest restaurants. You cannot go wrong with any dish on the inventive, flavor-filled menu. Service is impeccable, and the whole place is classy but never snobby or stuffy. It is always friendly, just like the amazing chef himself. Whether it's date night or a business lunch/dinner, Fearings is a terrific choice!

We celebrated New Years Eve here and the menu was over the top. It was hard to decide what entree to choose from. Dean Fearing is a master hostess and welcomes personally everyone in his restaurant.
We loved hearing him sing and play the guaritar in the bar area to bring in the New Year.

I ordered the filet and chicken fried lobster, filet was perfect, lobster was well prepared, presentation is boring, sauce is over power for the dish, the spinach is too heavy with cheese. and could do without the wrap. Also ordered the mushroom as a side dish, drench in oil, couldn't eat it. Nice beets amuse and cute ginger snap cookie boxes.

Saturday Brunch buffet. Not a large selection of choices, but the quality made up for it. The scrambled eggs were moist and fluffy, not just set out under a heat lamp to dry out. Pastries, muffins and Texas Sticky muffins were all quite tasty. Huge bowls were fill with a selection of fresh fruit. A coffee press is left on your table for easy refills. And the waitress introduced herself and called me by my name though we had never met. That’s what an Open Table reservation will do.

The breakfast buffet on Saturday and Sundays is the best kept secret in Dallas. They buffet is from 7-1030 am only. But this buffet is hands down the best value and buffet I've ever been to.

From the fresh fruit, lox, eggs, meats, breads, and breakfast potatoes offered to the made to order waffles, oatmeal, eggs, and omelets, it really does not get any better.

I cannot say enough how much my family enjoys getting breakfast here on the weekends. We go at least monthly.

From Melvin at the valet to Lauren at the host, to Laura as your server, they have really figured out how to make everything special and perfect. Be sure to make a reservation as it can get be very busy after 9 am. Besure to ask to sit in Laura's section, she's the best. And tell Melvin hello, you'll instantly know him, he's the nicest valet/doorman you'll ever meet.

Simply the BEST dining experience in Dallas, in Texas, in America, on the planet Earth as far as we are concerned. We dining out a lot, and often, and at some of the top rated spots according to those that create such lists. Our go to is Fearing's for the food, the atmosphere, the cocktails, the wine, and of most importance, we dine at Fearing's because Dean had put together the best staff we have experienced. Kudos to Fearing's and the staff.

Excellent food great service. My only suggestion is that they add items or change the menu somewhat. I would dine there more often if there were some new items on the menu. The menu is heavy with meat dishes. Salmon is always a bit fishy so there is not much else to order if meat is not an option. Also, not much choice for salads.

Took our parents to Fearing's to celebrate their 35th wedding anniversary. Made a reservation in advance and got a very nice private room for the 10 of us. The food was absolutely amazing and my parents were so satisfied and happy with the whole experience I am sure they will be back!

As far as the service, it was okay, when they showed up... we sat around waiting for the servers quite a bit which was a little annoying since we could see how attentive they were to their other tables in the main dining area. We are assuming since their 20% gratuity was already included in our bill that they didn't have to pay too much attention to us or check in on occasion. Maybe the next time we will go in smaller groups. Thankfully my parents were too entertained by the conversations that they didn't notice.

As usual, the master, Dean Fearing, met our expectations with everything covered--ambience, service, food choices, pace of dining, relaxed atmosphere, friendly servers, visit to our table from Dean..... Couldn't have asked for more. We chose Fearing's for a special occasion (birthday); however, I wondered several times during the course of the meal why we don't eat there more often. Definitely will in the future.

Overall, our experience was great. Dean Fearing came into room to check on patrons multiple times and he was very attentive. However, the service staff and waiters were not attentive. We waited 10 minutes just to get our drink orders taken. I am a big fan of this restaurant, but was very disappointed by the lack of service. We were there on Christmas Eve Eve for a fun family dinner and left with a bad taste in our mouth.
