Paul, the wine sommelier was great!! He was extremely helpful and paired a red, white and desert wine that were outstanding!! Chef Fearing and the GM Ki An, both stopped by for a visit. The atmosphere, staff, and food are outstanding! I can’t think of a better location for special occasion dinner or just a great night out with friends.

Fearings is one of our favorite Dallas restaurants. The service is always excellent; the menu selections are varied and interesting. The wine list is excellent, and a knowledgeable staff makes it easy to explore tasting new wines. The dining room has a casual understated elegance that we find romantic. Casual dress seems to be the norm, although we enjoy getting “dressed” for dinner, and are quite comfortable being a bit more dressed-up than most at Fearings. The table placement is loose providing nice private conversation. This is a pricey restaurant but the overall experience makes it a wonderful night out and good value.

My ex-wife and I wanted a special place to celebrate our three children's birthdays. Our children were born on the same date, but different years ages as of the 18th of September are 26, 21, and 13. Fearing staff (reception, front line, backline, and management) all displayed top-notch professionalism and made my family feel welcomed. A special thanks to Martin, who took customer service to the next level, overall job well done to Fearing!

I look forward to returning whenever I visit Dallas!

Fearing's is my favorite place to bring non-Texas clients and non-Texas guests who appreciate incredible food and wine. I encourage my guests to get the antelope, because it is truly incredible. And the buffalo...so good. And Fearing's is currently the only restaurant in town to keep my favorite wines in stock. Definitely ask to speak with the Somm and let him offer his favorites. He never misses!

Still and I believe always will be one of the must go places for consistently extraordinary and elevated cuisine in Dallas. Chef Fearing knows what he does well and continues to stay true to his culinary point of view will innovating all at the same time.

Food, ambience and service are consistently beyond 5 Stars!

Obviously this is a well known chef and as such you should expect a premium price for his southern creations and libations, that being said the food and service "Dean" did not disappoint. The food, drink and service was nothing short of excellence!

Being a vegetarian, I typically only have one entree option. It’s so wonderful that Fearing’s offers an entire vegetarian menu! My husband and I ordered everything on it, and it was all interesting and delicious.
The restaurant is very comfortable and beautiful.

It was my husband’s birthday and it was an AMAZING experience. Our wait staff treated as royalty and even allowed us to sip 40 year old dessert wine as a treat! I would enthusiastically recommend this restaurant for any special occasion or a business meeting with high end clients.
