Review of Fearing’s in Dallas
Restaurant review brought to you by the best garage door repair Dallas has ever known!
Is the fear of bad food preventing you from trying a classy new restaurant with fancy furniture and excellent service? I get it. Footing a $50 bill for bad food is quite the tall order.
Your fear may be valid but fear no more. Fearing’s is here.
I tried their food during restaurant week and I have to say it was delectable. I even cancelled my other reservation with Abacus just to go back and have a meal off their regular menu a few days later. I’ll talk about Abacus in another review, but this here is my Fearing’s review:
ATMOSPHERE: This is one of the aspects in which Fearing’s truly sets itself apart. Besides Antares, atop the reunion tower, no other restaurant has quite as unique a dining atmosphere as Fearing’s. It gives you a Louis XIV dining in Versailles vibe with its fancy table setting. You dine in a glass rotunda surrounded by a classical garden.
FOOD: The menu features all the regular foods you normally find in every Tex-Mex joint in Texas. I’m talking about tortilla soup, salmon, prime rib, and cornbread – you know, the usual. Yet, it has a completely different feel. The food is excellent with impeccable attention to detail. I had to give the cornbread a double take, talk about addictive. I mean, I pride myself on being on a low carb diet, but I had to go beyond seconds to thirds on that corn bread. It was borderline perfect in terms of fragrance and its rich jalapeno punch. The Salmon too was incredible; tender, not overcooked and smoked to a fragrant finish. The Sangria is most certainly different from all other chain restaurant’s cool-aid and rum sangria. Theirs is specially made with homemade blueberry juice and quality liquers. My wife, a non-drinker, gulped down nearly an entire pitcher. My only complaint with regards to the food is their prime rib. I’d ordered it rare but it was a little overcooked. That said, whereas it’s no Lawry’s prime rib (though to be honest no one can compete) it’s certainly good. Fearing’s smoke their meats, so if you don’t like your meats smoked, it’s probably not the restaurant for you.
SERVICE: In a word? Impeccable. The staff are there for you and they don’t say no. For instance, since I loved the cornbread I’d gobbled down for dinner, I wanted it again for lunch during a subsequent visit. Even though it wasn’t available, the waiter told me that the chef would SPECIALLY PREPARE it for us. Wow.
CONCLUSION: Dining at Fearing’s gives you the sense of dining in Versailles with impeccable service and great food. As long as smokey meat is your forte and you don’t order the prime rib, you will definitely love it. Of the two dozen restaurants I went to during restaurant week, Fearing’s is in my top 2 when it comes to food and is my best restaurant overall. My Fearings’ rating? 5 stars out of 5.
