Was visiting Dallas on business and client took me to Fearings. I am not a Dallas fan- and they wanted me to try the "best" of Dallas. We ate at the bar type seating, and had the Chefs tasting menu. Food was good, not great. The wine pairings with the dinner were just awful. Dean did come out and talk... More

I have eaten at Fearing's many times, and it is always fantastic. This restaurant is the epitome of high-end Southwestern cuisine. For anyone visiting Dallas, looking for a signature meal, this is the place ! Try the Buffalo or Antelope; you will not be disappointed.

I cannot even begin to understand the "love" or good reviews of this place. I have a high expectation of restaurants who charge $26-$30 for appetizers and $36-$58 for entrees. And while even after the first read of the menu, I found the combinations by line item overly complicated and wondered what it would be like when it hit my... More

As a starter, this restaurant is expensive. Entrees run from $40-$60, and appetizers top out in the $25 range. If there is no way that you will find food at that price worth the price, don't come here. That said,value is in the quality of the experience, and Fearing's offers a unique culinary experience. The menu is inspired, with many... More

Food was wonderful, Dean Fearing was there and stopped by twice to check on us. Almost everything was perfect, with one exception. While I was perusing the wine list, the waitress asked if I would like a suggestion, I said sure. She then went on to recommend one $1,000 bottle and another $2,000 bottle, what is that? I have never... More

Extremely beautiful dinner; we sat at the chef's table right next to the open kitchen. The waiter was very great, service excellent. Very expensive and some of the main courses were small. The people who had the bison filet with the chicken fried lobster tail were delighted! I enjoyed the tortilla soup.

We come here frequently, and are never disappointed. My husband and I had the buffalo tenderlion and it was perfectly prepared. Our guest, the bone-in steak, and he devoured it. Appetizers were the sampler, the tortillo soup, and the crab/tuna tempura. (in my opiniion, not really a tempura, but excellent as a tuna tartare and shasimi). Service. as always, perfect.... More

The food was ok for the breakfast we did get but way too expensive. I ordered two eggs, bacon, toast, orange juice and coffee for two people and bill came to $70 US.
