This restaurant is located inside the Ritz Carlton. It is pretty pricey, but well worth the money. Their Dr. Pepper braised short ribs are awesome. For dessert, if you like peanut butter, I would definitely recommend their Peanut butter crunch part with peanut butter caramel sauce and chocolate ice cream. It tastes wonderful and shows up an your table looking... More

The service here is excellent. Chef Fearing even came to our table to check on us. He said it was his goal that guest could shut their eyes and point at the menu, and it would be good. While we didn't do exactly that, I believe we could have. All of our appetizers, entrees, and desserts were excellent and unique.... More

The service and food have been impeccable every time we have dined at Fearing's. The sommelier is one of the best we have met. His knowledge of wine and his desire to pass his knowledge on to the future generations is admirable.

Took my wife for her birthday and was expecting a spectacular meal after reading reviews on tripadvisor and the Dallas Morning News, but was disappointed overall. Started with the famous tortilla soup and it was fair, but nothing memorable. My wife figured the "secret" ingredient was either a bar-b-q sauce or similar type of dry rub. Hard to believe that...

I came in late and still enjoyed the bar food menu. Lobster nachos and putine was incredibly good. Great bar and offerings. Rida the manager is a rock star! Thanks. Will be back.

Fearing's Restaurant is one of the most disappointing restaurants I've eaten in a while. When starters run in the twenty dollar range and entrees run in the forty to fifty dollar range, you should get a lot better food and service than what we received Saturday night. My wife and I thought the menu lacked imagination and the food itself... More

Among the top few restaurants in Dallas. Impeccable food and service on every one of more than a dozen visits. Several times chef Dean Fearing himself has made the rounds of the dining room, chatting with guests at each table. In addition to the items on the menu, they serve unique complimentary "shooters" between courses with flavor combinations that are... More

We enjoyed a fantastic lunch at Fearing's inside the Ritz Calton. The fish dishes were great. All dishes were executed flawlessly with great presentation. Highly recommend.
