This is one of Dallas's finest restaurants! Very creative, excellent food, wonderful atmosphere as well. The Bar has a great feel and the appetizers are good, try the mango chicken quesadillas.

Six of us went out for a nice company dinner. The service was very good and the food was phenomenal. Even the small things, such as tempura fried okra, got the gourmet treatment. It's great to be able to enjoy this level of dining without wearing dress clothes.

Four of us decided on Sunday brunch to celebrate one's birthday. Great idea! Food choices are just varied enough to offer something for everyone, but not so overwhelming where the menu has pages and pages of info to peruse. Free valet parking is a terrific addition as well. Each one of us ordered something different, and all were enjoyable, although... More

Dean Fearing is the King of Southwest Cuisine. The dinner menu has so many great appetizers and entrees it is hard to choose what to have. The tortilla soup is the best. The antelope was very good. Will have to go back for more. The wine list is exceptional and the service is impeccable. We stayed at the Ritz so... More

Dean Fearing knows how to run a restaurant. The food is great and I like that you can sit in the super formal area or in the little area by the kitchen. Service is great too. I have never had a bad meal or poor service in this place. Go! BTW, the bar is quite a scene on its own.... More

Fearings is great for dinner and I always like to bring people from out of town to experience true Southwest gourmet. You have to try the brunch. Dean Fearing and his team have figured out how to make a casual brunch experience elegant, fun and casual. The food is great with a wide selection and very reasonable priced.

Had a salad and their famous Tortilla soup. It was very delicious and never had tortilla soup like that before. Will be going back for more when I visit the Ritz Carlton. Also, for dessert I had banana pudding, it was good as well. The staff is very accommodating. Very clean too :)

We had lunch at Fearing's and thoroughly enjoyed our experience. The restaurant is located in the Ritz-Carlton, Dallas and has great in-door or out-of-doors venues for drinking and/or dining. The restaurant has an urban vibe with some Texas clichés but it's really brought off well and is a pleasure to dine in the dining room. Additionally, the staff is always... More

We enjoyed a fabulous lunch at Fearings this week while staying at the Ritz Carlton which is where it is located. The shrimp taco is literally UNBELIEVABLE! The Salmon is prepared perfectly and the southwestern corn muffins (instead of bread) are not to be missed! Their wine list is spectacular and their desserts are off the charts! We have eaten...

My first visit was a wedding anniversary 2 years ago, and separate from the tasty and amazing food, I remember the wine recommended by the Sommelier was Sea Smoke Pinot Noir. This time, with a business colleague, I inquired, and a great substitute was recommended - Vivino has it at 4.5 stars, and we agree! The wine list offers considerable... More
