We celebrated three birthdays here last week at a beautiful outside table on a perfect night. The outdoor table was perfect as inside was so loud you could barely hear anything. The steak and chicken fried lobster were excellent as well as the bison tenderloin. The service was good but not great, could have been better with the price tag... More

My husband, kids and I were staying at the Ritz Carlton in Dallas and decided to have the breakfast buffet. From the scrambled eggs and specialty egg-bakes to the pasties, this buffet was delicious!!! It was a little pricey, but normal range for a nice hotel buffet. We also had dinner that night. Thankfully dinner was a birthday gift for... More

Cannot say enough about this restaurant. Everything is always a Perfect 10. Attention to the small details is amazing and nothing slips by the staff. Amazing every time we go there.

I have been to several five star restaurants, but this one just didn't quit cut it. Food was five star though. Perfect portions, cooked perfectly, plated amazing. The ambiance just wasn't there though. The tables were set up like a Sunday brunch. Bright colors, nothing said five star. Wait staff was on point but a little improper for the setting,... More

We had a lovely meal here during our stay at the Ritz Carlton. I had read glowing reviews a out it, and it certainly did mot disappoint. Fortunately, we arrived pretty early and were able to be served right away. Everything. We tried was outstanding. The owner stopped by to talk with us before we left, too. The Ritz standard... More

My meal here was spectacular. From crispy oysters to start, to a black snapper main course, to a truly spectacular dessert wine brought by the sommelier simply to please, this was an ambitious, perfectly prepared meal in an elegant and lively dining room. Admittedly I was there with two of the city's movers and shakers who are clearly beloved patrons,... More

The only reason that we have not rated Fearing's lower is because the rattlesnake bar was nice and the service was good. Other wise, it would get 1 out of 5. We ordered two starters, two mains, a bottle of red and shared a desert. The shrimp tacos were very good. However, the coconut and lobster bisque was overpowering with... More

Before you die...Fearing's in the Ritz Carlton. Get there 5:30ish and partake of complimentary guacamole, tortilla chips and margarita shots served by wait staff in the lobby of the hotel. Good. God. Then, hang around in the gorgeous bar and have a remarkably generous cocktail while you wait for your table. THEN the food...Haysoos Maria, the food. Maybe start with... More

If you like Southwestern food, this is a good option. Dean is always in the restaurant and greets his guests like you are visiting his home. The tortilla soup is always a good call. The wild game options are well prepared and tasty. Good wine list with the usual markup. Always save room for deserts, you won't be disappointed. We've... More

I met friend for breakfast on Sunday morning and thought the buffet was pretty good. The service was attentive and potatoes were fantastic.
