Came here for brunch and was pleased with the wonderful service and good food. The decor is nothing special, but very nice. The food wasn't particularly unique either, but well done and well served. But the prices are very high, as one could expect in a Ritz restaurant.

I was surprised by the waitstaff 's southwest striped shirts, but I probably shouldn't have been. Each if the entrées had a variety of flavors and textures packed into one plate. The waitstaff was actually so good we wondered if they were somehow listening in on our conversation while they were away. For example, we were debating getting the chocolate... More

We spent about $160 a head for a truly mediocre experience. Service was OK, but a bit condescending. The real shocker was the quality of the food. Our food main courses, from ordering to placing them on the table took less than 9 minutes. Which means the $56 tenderloin is pre cooked. No other way to achieve that speed. It... More

After my wife and daughter enjoyed a Sunday afternoon at the Ritz spa, I joined them for an early dinner at Fearing's restaurant. Since it was not overly crowded we were seated in the dining room adjacent to the kitchen. The food was excellent as always, the service was impeccable, and the atmosphere was lively but not overly loud once... More

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...
