Why we love it

Executive chef: Dean Fearing

James Beard Award-winning celebrity chef Dean Fearing’s swanky spot still turns out some of the city’s most innovative Southwestern fare. Feast on achiote-glazed antelope over mole with a braised rabbit enchilada, all while seated in a series of elegant dining rooms with Texas accents like rawhide chandeliers. The restaurant's sprawling patio is a prime weekend spot thanks to live music and a lively brunch.

    The options on the menu were not just "tasty" they were made with the imagination of Dean Fearing, who knows how to make things different and excellent. We had wonderful starters and main courses followed by "Grandma Fearings Banana pudding". Especially nice anniversary evening.

    Lovely hotel. Lovely restaurant. Coffee wasn’t hot enough. Guest didn’t care for the small waffles. Charged for juice that we did not receive. Sister had to cancel egg because wasn’t cooked to order. Omelet too fluffy.

    We selected this place in hopes to meet the Chef, but aside from that this restaurant was of choice for my son who celebrated his 30th birthday. The place for a Sunday dinner was like a ghost town, maybe two additional tables booked. The ambience was peaceful to enjoy every single bite of their extraordinary food. It was a lovely experience and the food from starters to main course was simply exquisite. We all enjoyed it especially the birthday son. Thanks to Moises for being such a great server!

    Lovely birthday brunch for my spouse and family. Service was attentive, but relaxed and non-intrusive. The chef altered a menu item for a child, and it works out great.

    Wife’s birthday dinner. First time to dine at a restaurant I’ve heard of for years and had high hopes of a great experience. Anything but … Our whiskey sours, requested to be “shaken” came to table flat, no head, pretty disappointing. I sent them back and they were returned done properly. Waiter passed it off as a trainee bartender. Ok … problem fixed The “world famous” Tortilla soup … meh. I make better! My wife had the sampler appetizer plate and all three items lacked. Jumbled flavors that seemed more intent on presentation than flavor. Strike two!! My dinner filet with fried lobster tail. Again … meh. Steak was less than prime, borderline choice. The fried lobster tail was almost cold when arrived at table. In fact ALL items had temperature issues. Let’s add to this experience, halfway thorough this disappointing dinner, a large party of 8 was sat right next to us with two of the males talking loudly and vulgarity was rampant. By this time I could have cared less about dessert. Although the staff was notified when J made the reservation, it was my wife’s birthday, we were “treated” to a one inch x one inch (kid you not) square of cheap white birthday cake.
