Great lunch at Fearings. The drinks were inventive...loved the Shaman! The bisque was perfect and loved the bacon wrapped quail; nice charcuterie presentation and flavors. Street tacos were wonderful and, of course, short ribs were flavorful. All was capped off by the pumpkin cheesecake...best I’ve had with sorbet , dried fruit and pumpkin seeds. I’m not a big dessert person but this was a real treat. Finally, got to meet and take a picture with Mr. Fearing who was very gracious.

This was a great venue to have a business lunch. Not too loud, but enough buzz so everyone doesn't hear your entire conversation. The server was very attentive without being annoying.
They brought breads and smoked butter to start. Both were good. The wine list was up to par. We had Ghost Block. The first bottle had some sediment, and the manager had no problem taking it back. It was very much appreciated. They are famous for their tortilla soup, which I thought was just okay. I've had it one other time and thought it was better on that occasion. Half the table ordered the short ribs and the other half had the special of the day. The short ribs were tender and fell apart on my plate. Really awesome. The special was a 6 oz tenderloin and crab mac n cheese. The other guests were very pleased. Overall great business lunch. Would highly recommend.

While celebrating my husband and I's 8th anniversary, we were seated right next to a large business lunch table. We had an 11:30 a..m. lunch and even though the entire restaurant was virtually empty, we were seating right next to a loud business lunch.

The meal was incredible, but unfortunately it was overshadowed by the terrible seating placement, even tough we specially asked for a "quiet booth" in the reservation request.

My husband and I enjoy a special dining experience in the few weeks before Christmas every year....and that includes the last 20 years in Dallas area. We have thoroughly enjoyed most of those times at Fearing's!!!
Again, we each had an outstanding meal, along with delicious champagne and scrumptious breads! It was a 10 on a scale of 1 to 10!!!!
The service was very attentive and helpful, never intrusive.
The atmosphere charming and peaceful, yet festive with beautiful flowers and table settings.
Thank you, Fearing's!!!!

It's always a special occasion to dine at Fearing's; it is never a disappointment. We ate in the Gallery this time, which is a different experience than eating in the room that opens into the kitchen. It's beautiful and more intimate, good for conversation. The food was really good and the service was just attentive enough. There was a lively scene in the Rattlesnake bar for drinks as well.

Fearing's continues to be a shining star on the Dallas restaurant scene. Just superb creative cuisine from Dean Fearing. Service is impeccable. Wine service by Paul Botamer is the best in the city. He will find a wine to pair with your meal and it will generally be delicious and yet may be obscure. Wonderful menu; nightly specials. Among the best restaurants in Dallas. Go and enjoy!

We had the best experience at the Sunday Brunch with friends. We got the sampler bread basket...Delicious! Red pear salad had the best flavors! The Texas Feta is to die for!!! Salmon was the best and the paper sack chicken was so tasty! Had banana pudding for dessert that topped off a wonderful dining experience! Service was great! Would recommend!

My fiancé and I went to Fearing’s this past Saturday for date night. Normally, we make the pilgrimage to Arthur’s but were looking for a more vibrant atmosphere for our fine dining experience this time around. Fearing’s delivered on that expectation and more.

My favorite items from the evening included the carpaccio (the toasted hazelnuts elevated the flavor of the bison in a way I could have never imagined) and the cheese dish. I had the latter with Graham’s 40-year port which was nothing short of Elysium. Though those were my favorite dishes, every offering was carefully designed to inspire and delight all senses.

I had one small issue with the main course which I won’t detail because I believe it to be the exception and not the standard of how Fearing’s operates. As small as the issue was, when my server learned of the problem he was insistent upon fixing it even when I maintained that it wasn’t worth the trouble. It was clear that the staff took pride in only delivering the best to their guests. For that reason, I can't even call the event an issue. Instead, I'll consider it a testament to how much this restaurant cares.

In a nutshell, I’ll be going back to Fearing’s and I’d recommend anybody looking for an upscale casual vibe with top notch culinary offerings to do so as well. Thanks for a date night success!

Fearings is always a special treat, but Thanksgiving was the best!! The overall atmosphere and the food combined with the service and even seeing Dean all added up to a special day.
My only thought would be that the restaurant request that people not wear jeans and t shirts to a special holiday meal. Most everyone was dressed nicely, except three young men who sat near us and all had on jeans and t-shirts. Just took something away from an other wise special day.

I enjoyed the food and appreciated that the Chef and Sous Chef came to greet us at our table. The waiter was incredibly knowledgeable and accommodating. My only problem was that we had reservations at 2:30 and weren’t seated until 3:15-3:20. Upon arrival we were told the restaurant hadn’t opened yet. Many parties were waiting to be seated. We also realized, too late, that we were over charged for our meal. Again thoroughly enjoyed the Thanksgiving meal, however having to wait 45+ minutes wasn’t pleasant, having had made reservations.

We went here for a late Thanksgiving lunch and the meal was incredible. Everyone enjoyed the options on the tasting menu. The only downside was even though we had a reservation we had a long wait for a table. Fearings came through and handed out hors d’oeurves and champagne to make the wait more bearable. A truly memorable meal.

My younger son and I ordered from the new vegetarian menu- gnocchi and Mexican sampler, while my husband and older son had the salmon and filet. All were excellent. Our salads were also great. And it was a treat for Dean and Eric to stop by our table. It was another wonderful evening at Fearings .

We had the quail and pork belly and bison carpaccio to start. My bride had the roast pheasant with a home made pot pie. I had the wagyu beef tenderloin and 2 chicken fried Maine lobster tails on top of a spinach taco. To finish we shared the banana pudding with crispy beignets. A tour de force.
