We stay at The Ritz Carlton in Dallas on a regular basis. During our stays, we always dine at Fearing's. Our stay at the hotel this past weekend was wonderful, as usual. Unfortunately, our dinner at Fearings was not so wonderful. It was a Sunday evening and we noticed that Chef Fearing was not at the restaurant this particular evening. It was most obvious as the service was poor, the cuisine was not up to par and even the presentation was poor. Everything from the appetizers, salad, entree and dessert was not what Chef Fearing would have approved of. Even though our dinner was $1,500.00 (with wine and cocktails), we were very disappointed. It is the first time we have dined at Fearing's and felt that we would have been better off with room service. We will be back with the strong hope it will not be a repeat performance.
