The dish halibut was good especially the fish. The underlying veges were disapponting and detracted from the dish. The appetizers were good. The overall experience did not match previous dining.

I decided to treat my mom for her birthday and Fearing's did not disappoint. This was her first time eating at a higher end restaurant and she thoroughly enjoyed herself. From the moment we arrived we were treated with the best customer service has to offer.

The waiter was amazing and even convinced her to try duck and antelope. (which I NEVER thought she would do)

She was highly impressed at how the entire serving team worked in complete sync. We were treated as if we were the only table in the restaurant.

Mom has decreed that we will visit Quarterly. THANK YOU for not letting me down...I would have hated to stop going to one of my favorite places if my Mom was treated in a less than stellar manner.

Fearings was a great experience.
The staff provided the best service I have ever received at a restaurant. Friendly, attentive, and referred to me by name!

The food was very good. The wagyu beef fillet was simply the best i have ever had. The crust on it was perfect!!! I didn't need any sauce to accompany it.

The ceviche and octopus app were perfectly prepared although I didn't prefer the flavors.

The flower child cocktail is also wonderful!

Dessert was very good but not the best I have had, I had the banana pudding.

Overall, its a bit expensive but very good.

The food was amazing, and we’re thankful they were able to provide such outstanding vegetarian and vegan options. Only downside was we had multiple servers come to the table and they seemed confused about who was doing what.

I needed someone to help create a perfect birthday dinner for my wife. We are both vegetarian.

The evening could not have gone better. From the moment we were greeted, until we met our fantastic server Jeff and wine director Paul, the meal was an event to be remembered. From a little appetizer shot served on a bent spoon through an adventurous five-course feast, we were pampered like royalty. Paul's wine selections were dead on, just as creative as the food. Vegetarian dining is not an afterthought here...a collection of sides this was not!

I just cannot praise Fearing's enough for delivering on everything asked of them, and then topping it in every way. And you might imagine it was an expensive proposition to make all this happen, but when the check arrived it was about half of what I expected (and what I would happily have paid for such flawless treatment).

So, thank you Fearing's. It was exceptional. Bravo.

The food is always excellent. The service was good. However where we sat in the restaurant just felt odd and out of place for the restaurant.

We were at the 2 person table by the chefs table with the brick column on one side. This table just feels forced and it feels like a table was needed to accommodate a last minute reservation so let’s put one here.

Food was delicious. Ambiance was loud on a Friday night. Very busy and not a good place for a date. Overall a good experience but won’t be back due to slow service and a loud atmosphere. Very pricey. Chef Fearing was very friendly and stopped by twice to see how the food was. Shame our server got a large table..because then he just didn’t have time for us. Not his fault. He was busy. But we had huge 20-30min gaps where we couldn’t find him. Another server ended up getting us dessert/dessert menus.

Dined at Fearing’s for brunch to celebrate mine and my cousins birthday and we were met with superb food and service, as is tradition with Ritz-Carlton hotels. All the staff we encountered were so friendly and accommodating, most of all our server. We had fresh, hot French press coffee, deliciously sweet chocolate French toast with thick brioche bread, eggs, thick bacon, and a wonderful assortment of pastries and breads. The ambiance was so lovely and we had a nice view next to the windows. I highly recommend Fearing’s any time of day as a treat to yourself, for the dining and the service. We were even given a lovely gift from the restaurant as part of our birthday. What’s nice touch! I will surely be returning again next time I’m in the city. Thank you for a wonderful experience!

It was a huge disappointment. I was expecting a high and memorable dining experience after reading all the reviews. Food was ordinary, no special and surprising taste or smell. Ingredients looked randomly put together. Foie gras tasted like granola. We ordered two main meet dishes, they had same sauce and decoration. We did not bothered to have a dessert. I had no more expectation. It was waste of money on a meal that i could get better steak on any steak house.

Service was the main issue... My main course order was the tenderloin and though it tasted good, it was served without a steak knife. I had eaten three or four bites when the waiter realized and brought me the correct knife - not what I would have expected for a high end place. Wines by the glass were nothing to write home about either.

Located in the Ritz Carlton, Fearing’s has the same welcoming vibe and service culture one would expect when visiting a Ritz property. Service was prompt and attentive as we were greeted and welcomed by each member of the service team. Fearing’s menu leans toward the Southwest but with great creative flair. The menu is modest in scope but offers a variety of enticing options ranging from traditional steaks to game and seafood offerings. The crab bisque, pan seared snapper, and buffalo tenderloin entree’s were all excellent. Desserts were lovely and when we asked about the preparation of the gorgeous bananas foster in a gold leaf covered chocolate egg, the pastry chef came out to the table to chat. She was fabulous! Definitely a worthwhile dining experience and one I would absolutely repeat when returning to Dallas.
