Steakhouse Review: Fahrenheit 555

Any meat-lovers out there?  If so, this post’s for you!

As I mentioned in a prior entry, I cruised on the Carnival Breeze back in April.  And, of course, since I’m a foodie, I decided to try out the steakhouse onboard, Fahrenheit 555.

Pros?  It’s a specialty venue, which means that only a limited number of people can dine there per cruise and it promises food of a supposedly higher caliber than what’s offered in the main dining room.

Cons?  It’s a specialty venue, so the limited seating will most likely mean that if you don’t reserve early, you’ll be stuck with super early/late dining times — or even worse, no dining times.  There’s also an additional fee to dine.  $35 per person, in fact.  Not exactly chump change, but worth it for the experience, I guess.

Once seated at the table, I took one look at the menu, and immediately decided that I’d order a starter, a salad, an entree (with a side, of course), and a dessert.  Maximizing value and variety at the same time, win!

FYI, before you keep reading, you’ll probably want to check out my About the Author page to understand my food ratings below.

Round one (starter)… Ahi Tuna Tartare, Dices of Sashimi Grade Yellow Fin Tuna Belly (rating: fine, pretty tasty, decently-sized portion, interesting presentation)

Round two (salad)… Sliced, Sun-Ripened Beef Steak Tomato, with Gorgonzola Crumbles (rating: okay, slightly mushy tomatoes, nothing too exciting here, but again, nice presentation)

Round three (entree)… Broiled Filet Mignon, 9 oz. (rating: fine, medium rare that was actually medium rare, though nothing above what I would’ve expected from a good steakhouse)

Round four (dessert)… Selection of International Cheeses (rating: fine, decent variety)

I must say, I was pretty impressed with the overall dish presentations.  After all, you eat with your eyes first, right?  Color and visual appeal definitely helped in this case.

Anything on the Fahrenheit 555 menu look particularly exciting to you?
