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

Great food! Wonderful drinks! I'm obsessed with their seasonal drink. Very classy atmosphere and a nice outdoor section to the bar.

Fearing's is a consistently great choice. The food is fresh, innovative, and delicious. Wait staff is friendly, helpful and provides attentive service, without being intrusive. One of my all time favorites in Dallas.

We ate here as a group of 8 in July. Everyone had a good meal and thoroughly enjoyed the evening. The chef personally visited the tables, ensuring everyone was happy with their meal...nice touch. The food was very good...no complaints. The service was well choreographed in that all the plates were brought out at once by additional staff, ensuring that... More

Knowledgeable bartender that can offer up many options based on your likes. I had one drink on Sunday night, and came back Monday evening with a group of co-workers, the bartender asked me if I wanted the same drink as the night before. I was impressed. The Bar menu was excellent. I had the buffalo tacos. Incredible.

Had dinner here while staying in the hotel and enjoyed it greatly! We sat in the main dining room, with open kitchen, but there is another conservatory-like room that looked very attractive as well. Decor is Texas contemporary elegance and menu is equally contemporary. Very smokey flavors and excellent steak. Pricey, but worth it, in our opinion.
