There is no dress code. We got there early to enjoy a drink at the bar before being seated. Service... read more

But best when you are on an expense account. Good food and service, and nice ambience, but it is pricey!

Fearings is everything you'd expect from both a great restaurant and a great chef. From the moment you enter and are seated, and throughout your dining experience, you are surrounded by both a great atmosphere and friendly people. Dean himself comes out to your table and answers any question you may about the menu and is about the friendliest guy... More

Dined here during a recent trip to Dallas. Was easy to get a reservation through OpenTable App. Had the Press Box Tuna and we split the Filet with Chicken Fried Lobster. Both were really prepared great and were really tasty. Only small issue is that the room we were sat in had more of a conference room feel as opposed... More

Good food, great service. On the pricey side, but well worth the cost. I had the Scallops and they were quite tasty

My wife and I dined here for a special occasion in September 2014 We love Fearings, we've been fans of Dean since he reigned supreme at the Mansion on Turtle Creek. For years I've been getting my wild game jones satisfied with Antelope at his restaurants, and this night was no exception. We started with the Foie Gras appetizer, I... More

I've only eaten here twice and I can't wait to go back again. Everything I've ever tried on the menu has been really good. Especially the BBQ short-ribs.

I visited Fearings for the New Year's Eve dinner and was very disappointed! The appetizer was truly discusting, second course seafood I could have made better myself. The beef Wellington was ok but wasn't really beef Wellington it was deconstructed. At $175 a plate I really would have expected the food to be top notch and it was a far... More
