Incredible Food

This restaurant was a last minute decision but we were able to make a reservation. The wait was incredibly long but they had a pleasant bar area outside to hang out in so time flew by. We also had the honour of meeting Chef Fearing himself and he was a incredible to talk to. Its been two weeks and... read more

What was supposed to be a pleasant evening turn out to be a disappointment. A restaurant at Ritz with many great reviews - How to go wrong with that? Well, they managed to. When we got at the restaurant the hostess told us that our table wasn't ready and it would take 20 minutes to be ready. That wouldn't be... More

Excellent in room dining experience, ask for the complete menu at the Ritz, we only ordered three of the four options on the in room menu and felt very limited in choices.

Excellent place for business meals. Food is exquisite and researched. Service is impeccable. Bar area is great too, with well-forged cocktails. Price-tag is on the high side, but then again, you get quality.

The space is large and comfortable. The service is professional and prompt. No rushing you thru. Food is the reason for being here and that was good. Not outstanding but very good. Get the soup. Most dishes looked wonderful and my steak and wife's fish were very good. We passed on desert and finished off with coffee. It's a beautiful... More

Nice elegant setting and great and very attentive service, but the prices are a bit too much for what you actually get, and the wine prices are a joke. We were celebrating our anniversary and they were really nice with us. Overall I had a good experience but regarding food I was a little disappointed, nothing out of this world... More

Ambiance was excellent. We had an early dinner (6p), so it's hard to get a true sense of ambiance at that time of day, but the restaurant was attractive and didn't have that clinical feel that some fine dining establishments seem to have. The service was outstanding. Our waiter was attentive, informative and unpretentious (I wish I could remember his... More

After reading all the accolades about this place, I expected to be blown away by the food. Regrettably that did not happen. I ordered from the vegetarian menu, which I had to ask for because it is not provided until you ask. The selections were limited, which was expected. I order the goat's cheese rolled and then fried in a... More

I have eaten at many good restaurants and Fearing’s is one the best. Hands down! Everything from start to finish was seasoned perfectly, beautifully presented, and priced reasonably. The service was phenomenal and the cocktails creative. I highly recommend going here.

We live in Dallas and have eaten here at least 6 times over the past couple years. Each and every time we've eaten here we leave disappointed. Last night was another "strike". We had a simply cooked lobster with a piece of filet and some sort of spinach "taco wrap". The filet was fine, the lobster like rubber and the... More
