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.

Had I left when the hors d'oeuvres had been served, I would rave about this place. Service was friendly and efficient. Food came and went in a steady flow. The wine flowed. Lovely ambience. Then we sat down. I may have had a bad night but I found the main course bland and warm rather than hot, though the desserts... More

Anyone that has ever been to Fearing's should know that it starts with the experience. The ambiance is first class with one of the coolest bars, The Rattlesnake Bar. Attached to the Ritz Carlton Hotel, you know you are in the midst of luxury. Three separate dining rooms offer a variation of settings but I prefer the main dining area... More

We were at Fearing's to celebrate my son's birthday. It was a great experience. We are all vegetarian. The vegetarian menu was not an afterthought like it is in many places. They had outstanding choices for both appetizers and entrees. The food was excellent. The service was great - being attentive without being intrusive. They have a great selection of... More

I'm more of a local dive/food truck kind of girl. But that's mostly because the expensive places are so often all marketing and the experience and food just don't deliver. This is one high end place I will be coming back to. They seemed happy we were there, the food was delicious, and they were very cognizant of our timeline... More

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.
