Best bet for a Sunday night anniversary dinner......
Any suggestions? Right now I have reservations at Marquee but reviews seem so-so. What will a nice meal at Fearing set us back? Also, considering Nick and Sam's. My husband really likes that place. I am going to eat at NOSH this weekend so if that place stands out, I might decide to go there for our anniversary. We were hoping to go to Hibiscus or Salum but they are both closed on Sunday and our sitter is not available on Saturday. :(

I think there's someone in another thread who would like your Marquee reservation ;) I love Marquee, it's one of my two favorites right now. The hot and cold foie gras is TDF. The pork chop (marinated, brined, and grilled in a 6-day process) is also quite good. The rabbit appetizer I had was definitely skippable. Service is great, and the people watching isn't bad either. One woman walked in and actually had me with my hand to my mouth ... we just don't see that level of 'work' having been done in Fort Worth ;)
We are going to stick with Marquee....is the petite filet any good? We had drinks at Marquee grill last night after NOSH and I someone there told me the petite filet was amazing!! Is that true? Looking forward to trying the hot cold foie gras......definitely some good people watching there too!
Fearing's has a sample menu on their web site but it doesn't seem to have prices. I'm not terrible price sensitive so I'm not the best at answering this question, but I'd say most appetizers are in the range from $10 - 15 and most entrees are around $30. There might be a few outliers in either direction, but not by much unless you have a very costly ingredient such as foie gras.
The wine list is not extensive, although most regions are well enough represented. I would call it moderately well selected, with a few gems. Pricing is neither noticeably high or low as restaurants of that type go. The sommelier(s) generally know the list fairly well.
I enjoy the food.
Another option for you that has at least comparable food in my judgment and a superior wine program (both in selection and price) is Charlie Palmer at the Joule. Menus and Wine List are on line.
The food is very good at both places. Fearing's has much more Southwest and a bit more Asian influence. Charlie Palmer's is more generic in it's influences. I slightly prefer the food at Palmer's. It also has a more intimate feel and is arguably more romantic, though neither rates ultra high on that scale. The wine list at Palmer's is very good for Dallas. It is on a tablet computer which you will love or hate -- no middle ground. But you can learn to use it on their web site and it is always up to date on the web site in my experience. The selection is nice, the depth of the list if fair to good, but the best thing is the pricing. It's basically retail.
One final option is Craft at the W Hotel. Dinner is served family style, so it's probably the least romantic of the three. But the food is genuinely good. Wine list is the worst of the three, though not bad. Again, most everything is on line although the wine list can sometimes be a few months old.
