When I dine at Ritz Carlton properties, I expect the best, and this was not it. Fearings is "nice", but not "fantastic". There was no one to greet us upon arrival at the host stand. The entrée highly recommended by our server, the Short Ribs, was lackluster at best. The meat was tough and lacking in flavor. That said, the... More

This restaurant is certain not to disappoint. After spending substantial time in Dallas last year I was delight to eat at Fearings in the Ritz Carleton where I was staying. One evening the chef ( Fearing ) actually sat down with me to inquire how I was enjoying my meal. It was superb. Offering traditional meals and eclectic entrees such... More

I have always loved Dean Fearing when he was at the Mansion on Turtle Creek, and I have put off trying his restaurant at the Ritz Carlton Hotel for too long. The occasion was our Wedding Anniversary, and we were both looking forward to the New Adventure. The valet service is shared with the hotel so you enter into the... More

Amazing meal, wonderful service - made us all feel so special. Don't miss the desserts especially the banana pudding. Cocktails on the patio are a wonderful start!

I have been to Fearing's many times for lunch and they NEVER fail to disappoint. Dean Fearing is THE guy who made Tortilla Soup one of the most popular dishes in the area so if you have not tried his, it is the gold standard if you ask me. The rest of the menu is great as well. Dean always... More

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary with dinner at Fearing's and it was a lovely experience. Our waiter was exceptional and we thoroughly enjoyed our experience because of him. The food was delicious and the tortilla soup was indeed everything we had heard about. The price tag is high but if you're looking for a unique and luxurious experience,... More

Wagyu filet was excellent and prepared perfect! We eat at the top steakhouses in Dallas and this one goes right up there with the best of the best. Lobster bisque was the best we have ever had.
