Fearings is one of the best restaurants in DFW. I always have an excellent meal, and Dean Fearing always makes sure to personally greet each guest and make them feel welcomed.

Anniversary dinner and was disappointed. The display of the food was beautiful but the overall taste and quality fell short. The oysters were strong, my halibut was ok nothing special and I felt a little over done. The lobster tail was over cooked. The best thing we got was the little lemon sponge cake with fresh made whipping. Servers felt like they were out of sync. The beverages were on point. I expected better food taste and quality coming from such a nice place.

My wife and I needed a weekend away. Dinner Friday night at Fearing's and the Ritz Spa Saturday morning. We had planned to eat away from the Ritz on Saturday evening but our Friday experience was so fabulous went back for seconds. Candace was the best server we've ever had in Dallas. She had great wine recommendations both nights. The Nilgai Antelope was unbelievable. The Wagyu Tenderloin melted in my mouth. Every side and meal was perfect. Why would you go anywhere else?
We didn't.

Fried lobster tail with filet was delicious and unique. Tortilla soup was so fresh and next level I couldn’t believe my taste buds.
Sautéed mushrooms were spectacular.
Desserts were very special as well.

Service was impeccable and hospitality was worthy of the pricing.

Menu was beautifully minimal and made me feel confident with any choice.

Went during COVID protocol and they followed safety precautions to a tee

The ambience was perfect the chicken fried lobster was the best and I appreciated being able to get all lobster in place of the and fillet on the lobster and steak combo. Service was perfect Andrew and his team did a great job! The flower child drank was phenomenal - a bit pricey for such a small drink but it was very intense in the way they made it With such special ingredients.

What a great evening! Cocktail in the Rattlesnake Lounge, then a wonderful dinner that included bbq oysters, tortilla soup, wagyu filets, chicken fried lobster and three amazing deserts! The staff were very attentive and gave my brother-in-law a nice birthday celebration! Dean Fearing is the best!

This was one of the most incredible meals and experiences I have had since I moved to Dallas. I lived in Chicago which is a super foodie town, and have had great food in dallas, but this blew me away! Service was impeccable, food was insane, and the wine director was incredibly helpful as well. Our new special occasion place for sure!

My date and I both opted for the vegetarian options and Fearing's had some interesting gourmet vegetarian options which I think is unusual for this level of dining experience. The meals did not disappoint.

The atmosphere and service were excellent, as to be expected from such a nice establishment.

Overall, I had a great experience and would recommend to anyone looking for a fine dining experience.

In short, not worth the cost. The service was courteous but slow and inattentive. I have had soft drinks stay full with more regularity at a chain restaurant. The food was good but nothing special. For a very expensive restaurant like this, I had expected more.
