We dine out a great deal but this restaurant is a standout. There subtle southweat flavors are remarkable. We loved the lamb chops, the mussels and the oysters Rockefeller. MMmmm

We had the sampler appetizer which was really good. The lobster coconut bisque was a bit unusual and not the best lobster bisque we have had. We had the pork chop and a ribeye. Both were well prepared, presented and tasted great. We also had a dessert sampler that was very well prepared and disappeared quickly.

My family and I have been to Fearing's on many different occasions, and every time, the quality of both food and service is always exceptional. Honestly, the food is Southwest goodness with a flair and the atmosphere is always alive and exhilarating. One thing I must say is that you need to have a drink (or two, or three...) at... More

Have been to Fearing's several times but this was the best. They seated us near the kitchen at a large square table. The service was perfect. Food was delicious - dishes we loved includes the famous Tortilla Soup, the steak with chicken fried lobster (amazing), the salmon, and the quail salad with goat cheese. The tastes are definitely southwestern but... More

we had dinner and it was good , our waiter recommended some matching wines which again were good and reasonably priced for a high end restaurant. try and leave some room for the banana dessert which was excellent. just watch out for the portions which are substantial, consider sharing a course or two!

High end dining in a beautiful dining room. Right off the lobby, but still feels secluded. The menu is innovative but not weird. Great service by a professional staff, excellent wine list

The first night was a Networking event, very fun to be in the middle of this. :) The next night we enjoyed the outdoor fireplace and the humor of the bartenders. Lot's of great people come here. Wonderful place.

In town on business and so had a reservation for "one." The wait staff worried that I needed reading material and I assured them that I was there to enjoy the meal and the "event" of watching the chef and his team in the open kitchen. Had a very good meal - from a menu that is unique but not... More

In Dallas for Cotes du Coeur American Heart Association event. Chef Fearing was one of the guest chefs for the event. The tasting selection he served was so amazing that we decided to go for brunch the next day. A really fun menu and well executed. Our servers, Michael and Ishmael, were fabulous. Kudos Chef Dean!
