Atmosphere was nice, wait staff was very attentive. Chef Fearing comes out and say hi to everyone. But food was way overpriced for what it was worth.

The Weekend brunch is one of the best in DFW. The fried chicken is amazing and the desserts are very unique and just as good.

We go here regularly when in Dallas as our "special" night out restaurant. The food continues to be superb, wonderful flavors and subtle spices with a southwestern emphasis. The service has always been attentive, however this time (and on our most recent earlier visit 6 months ago) we both felt rushed by the waitstaff, continually being asked if we were... More

Waited on by server Michael - this was a true 7 star experience. Had to wait for 30 minutes over the promised reservation time, but man, totally worth it! Went as a family of 4 to celebrate a birthday. The tortilla soup is a must have - and served perfectly. Halibut as cooked to perfection. Some of the vegetarian entrees... More

The menu on line does not show prices. There is a reason for that: appetizers at $12-24, entrees $48-$55, and the least expensive wines at $50 a bottle. It's expensive… and the food is excellent. There are very unusual combinations of flavors here: tex-mex-asian-French-American fusion, and they work very very well. The service was a bit chaotic and at times... More

Dean Fearing has been recognized locally and nationally as an exceptional chef. Many of his unique recipes are now nationally recognized. This is a must if you visit Dallas. I can only say that this is a place that should be on your "bucket list."

I ducked into Fearing's to escape the sun and humidity for a nice quiet lunch. My spouse and I decided to lunch at the bar since it was quiet, cool, dark and peaceful. Decor was beautiful and calm, service was exceptionally friendly. It was nice to be given a choice of menus, although the bar menu had enough range to... More

Our party of two couples enjoyed a perfect Sunday brunch at Fearing's in the Ritz Carlton. The atmosphere was relaxing and comfortable. No loud music while we were there. Not crowded as we thought it might be. The service was excellent, attentive but not obsessive. We asked about a cocktail that we were unfamiliar with. Our waiter described it to... More

Excellent cuisine, beautiful decor, attentive service -- all marred by loud, inappropriate music. Who wants rap nonsense with your $55.00 entree? We asked for the restaurant to lower the noise so that our party could converse -- such a concept! -- and were told that other diners might want the music. Weird that someone would seek out a fine dining... More

As part of a birthday celebration, five of us went to Fearing's for dinner. The atmosphere was wonderful and the food was exceptional, but it was a comical, entertaining night when it came to the service and the wine. First when making a second pour of the white wine, the waiter poured the wine in one person's water glass that... More
