    Top tier restaurant. The place is beautiful. Staff are welcoming. From the bread presentation, the appetizers, the dinners and the desserts I was impressed. Each item specifically compliments the other. Take your wife or husband for a special occasion. They will not forget it.

    Very lively spot for some incredible food with top notch service. Beignets were light and fluffy, crab cake benedict had a perfectly runny poached egg, and the cobb salad with chicken fried lobster was swoon worthy. Wait staff coordinates to bring all entrees to your table simultaneously, not a small feat when you are party of eight. Brunch well done!

    Not impressive for the price. The steak okay but dry (we weren’t offered mopped version when ordered). Mushrooms huge disappointment…they were little squiggly tiny mushrooms with no flavor. The Tater tots in duck oil were squares barely fried and mushy.

    The lobster bisque was the worst we have ever had and the SW Sampler was mediocre at best. Chef Fearing has clearly lost whatever star power he ever had. The cost of the meal was insulting given the horrific calibre of the food. Stay away!!

    Our dining experience was a positive one. The atmosphere and service were excellent. My husband had the lamb dish and said it was delicious. I ordered the antelope entree and found it to be steak-like but chewy. The oyster appetizer was a disappointment due to the smallness of the 3 oysters and the lukewarm temperature of the creamed spinach. The waiter recommended a Spanish wine which was a perfect selection for the meats we chose. The unique pecan "pie" was a sight to behold and quite good.

    This place a secret gem for brunch. Yes, it's great for lunch or dinner, but who would've thought brunch could also match up. If you want a quieter brunch away from the loud, mimosa hounds this is it.

    Ambience is what it makes this restaurante attractive. We tried multiple dishes so we can have a better diversity of what the restaurant has to offer. Some were interesting like hamachi crudo remaining were not that incredible. I would expect more for a $200 meal for 2 people. There some special oysters with caviar…can’t understand why would someone kill the caviar or the outer flavour with some milky spice on it…terrible. Definitely there’s better dinners for the category.

    My "vegetable curry" dish had no hint of curry flavor. It was a rather tasteless bowl of finely chopped vegetables in a bland gravy. My wife's "shrimp scampi" was a weird noodle dish with cubes of inedible pork. Yes, there were shrimp in the dish, but calling it "scampi"? Where was Dean Fearing when these dishes were created? I can't imagine he would have allowed them on his menu! Fortunately, our celebrity out-of-town guest enjoyed his salmon, and his signature margaritas were lovely. I'm glad one of us had a decent meal. We have been going to Fearing's for years, taking special guests there for a special meal. Sadly, this last visit was a terrible disappointment, and we shall never return. It was a very sorry waste of $200.00.

    The food may be the star at this restaurant but the service is a close second. It was my birthday and at least 4 members of the staff wished me a Happy Birthday. Our server was phenomenal. Very attentive. Noticed when we went to the bathroom and waited till we were re-seated to come back and drop food. The food, beyond amazing. So many minor details that highlight the experience. Highly recommend this place.

    Fearing's remains one of the best restaurant in Dallas. Creative menu by Dean Fearing - but if you want a steak - there is no better place. But lamb, duck, redfish, buffalo are also options. Just a wonderful menu and Paul may be the best sommelier in the city. If you let him, he will you something new and different - and you will probably will enjoy it. A wonderful dining experience - among the best there is in the city.

    This place is phenomenal. The fact it's located in The Ritz should come as no surprise, as the service is impeccable. Each member of the staff made my wife and I feel important and attended to, at multiple times throughout the dining experience. Chef Dean even came over to check on us twice! I highly recommend letting your server guide you through the ordering experience. From starters to wines, entrees to coffee and dessert, our selections were a perfect balance l, only adding to the overall experience. I walked in expecting to have the Wagyu Ribeye and ended up having the most tender bison filet imaginable. Might I add, pecan pie swimming in warm chocolate Will knock your socks off....quite literally. I think our server, Martin might have even offered a pillow and a blanket afterward. Will be back time and again.
