The Sunday Brunch at Fearing's can be one of the best bargains in town. Menu is divided into Starters ($12), Entrees ($28) and Desserts ($10) - you can have one of each for $45. But the starters are "very generous portions" - my wife had one starter (pancakes) and I had two starters (Tortilla soup and Fried Lobster Cobb Salad) and it was sufficient for both of us. We did add a break basket (the biscuits, breads, rolls they make in house were outstanding.) Mimosa's were excellent and we had to turn down dessert. An excellent Sunday Brunch - and do not forgot Dean's Grandmother's Fried Chicken entree - only on Sunday's but always very good. Worth a Trip

The food was great and most of the staff was excellent. My waiter, though was average at best. Seemed like he would have preferred to do something else rather than wait on me. All the other staff were outstanding and caring.

Would be at top of list to dine at again on next trip to Dallas! Aside from pleasant greeting when arrived, was informed that Chef Fearing was "in the house" that evening and would visit our table. Sure enough he did and actually knew my name from Hostess/reservation! Charming gentleman, posed for picture and stopped by several times during our meal to make sure all was good. Food was not good, IT WAS GREAT!!!!

Fearing's is a must-dine spot here in Dallas. Staff was friendly and very attentive, food was delicious and we loved the creative twists on classics. May we order a large vat of the smoked butter, please?? AND, Chef Fearing, himself, came over and chatted with each table. Bravo, Chef, bravo.

It’s been a couple of years since our last visit. In town this time for the Hugh Jackman concert. Arrived a day early, and thought, we'd keep it simple and eat in the hotel. This is NOT "hotel food". By any measure, Fearing's is a first class destination in its own right, and deserving of your attention.

The food is imaginative without being pretentious. My wife's lamb was perfection. They have an excellent wine selection, with several wonderful Oregon Pinot Noir's, including a number of half bottles.

From a previous trip, I knew to include the chicken-fried lobster. The kitchen works magic on those Maine lobster tails to make them tender, juicy and flavorful.

My wife's dessert of strawberry shortcake took her back to mom's homemade and the strawberries were deliciously ripe. As a chocolate fan, I opted for the lava cake which was outstanding.

Michael our waiter, was charming and helpful in every way.

Just excellent all around.

Fathers Day Buffett. Chef Fearing does it right for dad’s day. Brisket, ribs, sirloin, seafood, side dishes and deserts were all fantastic. On top of it all, bourbon and cigar bar with live music.
Chef Fearing is always available and he mingles with this guest to makes sure all are satisfied with their meal and experience.
That’s why we love Fearings

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.

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.
