    Fearings is one of our “go to” special night out restaurants. The food is fantastic and service is always great. The steaks are tender and delicious, the fish is cooked perfectly and the sides are tasty and creative. Each dish is presented beautifully, the perfect temperature, and plentiful. The servers are all super friendly and take great care of us. We usually dine with 3 kids all under 5 and they are treated like special guests-with care, sometimes stuffed animals, special drinks, and understanding of their needs. This is greatly appreciated. We love when the Chef comes out to say hello too. It’s a wonderful treat to thank him in person. We always look forward to the next visit!

    Frequent guests at the Ritz and frequent diners at Fearings. Ordered the Halibut last visit and in a word it was unacceptable. Dry seemingly freezer burned. Fish smell and taste too strong for this mild fish. And mealy dry texture. We had two orders at the table and both suffered from this unsatisfactory protein. Fearing kitchen is too good and rightfully to proud to produce such a substandard product. And their prices too high to source such a poor main ingredient. Felt a duty to report. Get better fish or get it off the menu.

    Our second time here and unfortunately, I had to send my first course back as I didn't like the sweet flavors. I reordered a Wagyu NY strip medium rare and it came out medium well, which was disappointing but it had great flavor. The other orders at the table didn't come out exactly as ordered temperature wise, but those were fixed accordingly. Our server, Justin, was amazing and took such great care of us though as well as the hostess.

    An excellent breakfast with special requests happily accepted including heated half & half for our coffee and a pancake substituted for hash browns. The pancake was the highest and lightest we've ever seen and my friend says it was the best pancake she's ever had. And the hashbrown square is brown and crisp. The eggs were cooked perfectly and the bacon was crisp and not greasy. Our server was very accomodating.

    Came in from out of town. Went to a couple different restaurants including Nobu, which was wonderful. Read a lot of reviews about how this place was off the charts good. Our waiter was Very inattentive and not very friendly or helpful. All the wonderful things we read were about the food and I can say the food was mediocre at best. Extremely disappointed

    Food was outstanding (tortilla soup amazing as always). Wait staff attentive—easy to visit. ((celebrating a 76th birthday). I have come to Fearing’s many times over the years for different celebrations. What a shock it was that there was a $15 valet fee. Unfortunately, I will not be back or recommend to friends as long as this fee is in place.

    A delightful meal for my wife’s Birthday celebration! A lovely bread selection with the jalapeño corn muffins the Star. The Lone Star Surf & Turf carpaccio was delicious. Their entree interpretation one “surf & turf” with the filet and a chicken fried lobster tail was perfect. The banana pudding with beignets was fabulous, especially accompanied with a perfectly made Expresso Martini.

    They made my favorite personal cocktail perfectly. The Halibut was beautiful, but the peach sauce was too thick & sweet. Got lemon butter. Fried okra & Brisket mac & cheese were also very good. Filet was cooked well. We split the sampler appetizer which was just a taste of 3 things. The bread is always good. My friends commented this was the best meal they've had at Fearing's. The evening and the live music (lots of Fleetwood Mac) at the Live Oak Bar were both delightful. An excellent evening. Our server Xavier was fabulous!

    We’ve been planning to come here for a special occasion such as my husband’s birthday. It did not disappoint. The cocktails were imaginative and well-made. My husband had the buffalo tenderloin and I had the menu special roast duck. Very tender and tasty. The chef sent over complimentary bites, and included a little birthday cake complete with candle. Very nice touches. Highly recommend for an intimate dinner.
