Fearing's is one of the top ten restaurants in Dallas. Always a good meal and excellent service. Try the appetizer sampler, the lobster bisque, and the tenderloin steak. The banana pudding with beignets was delicious. Also got a small chocolate cake gratis for my birthday.

Had a very pleasant experience at this restaurant. We were looking for vegetarian options and while the standard menu on Sundays is the Sunday Brunch menu, they were very flexible and willing to customize to our tastes. They were also very flexible and worked with many options for my 13 year old, who is normally very selective about what he eats.

They had one Indian dish on the Vegetarian menu and we ordered it. My sincere advice is to stay away from their Indian options. They just did not know how to cook Indian dishes - the vegetables were under-cooked, the masala was the wrong one for that dish, the rice was not spiced right, and the breads were a disaster.

As an added bonus, when we were there, Jennifer Lopez and her family came and sat at the table right next to us. It was a pleasure seeing them.

Overall, it was a very memorable experience.

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.
