Contemporary American
Located in Historic Tremont on the Western edge of Downtown Cleveland. Fahrenheit opened and had immediate praise on sexy atmosphere & food in 2001. The Bohemian environment became a hangout for the dressed in black crowd, suit & tie and anyone looking for an culinary adventure. But Gourmet did not name Fahrenheit to its list of Great American neighborhood restaurants because it makes you feel so damn good being there. No, Rising Star Chef, Rocco Whalen, Wolfgang Puck protege, will blow you away with his approachable, affordable & cutting edge cooking style. Taste Rocco's contemporary cuisine with its Mediterranean and Asian accents and you will know why Esquire declared him a Chef you keep your eye on. If you are alone, sit at the bar and ordered Fahrenheit's martini and food menus. We offer a full range of carryout and to-go items as well as wine for consumption...

Highly disappointed in their compliance with Covid mandates. Several people walked in without a mask. When we finally said something as they all took turns standing up and walking to the bathroom. A manager/server finally said something to them. They continued all evening to ignore the mask rule. Any other restaurant would have made them leave. They acted as though the rules didn't apply to them. I blame the manager for allowing this and endangering everyone else dining. The chef wore his mask below his nose as well which was quite gross as well. We are not only in the middle of a pandemic but our numbers are rising at a double digit rate. Not smart in the behalf of the restaurant.

We haven’t been to Fahrenheit for years and were inspired to return after participating in Chef Rocco’s program for the Cuyahoga County library. So glad we did! Food and service were just as good as we remembered and our 12 year old wants to know when we are planning to go back. Fantastic menu; it was hard to choose what to have.

Done a great job at surviving Covid. Menu options continue to change seasonally but the old standards still survive. Need to bring back the chicken sandwich on the bar menu.

Our meals were outstanding. I had the tuna & it was delicious. My husband had rack of lamb & thought it was the best lamb he's ever had. My brother-in-law wanted milk with his meal. Since the restaurant didn't have any, they went to the store to buy some. Now that's service! Our waiter was also very helpful.

The food and service was fantastic. We went early before our reservation to go to the bar for Happy Hour. Everything was great, drinks food and service. I felt very comfortable going with Covid and how the restaurant is prepared for it. (Also all the servers wore their mask correctly, which at other places they do not and there was plastic by the bar)

Interesting menu with beautifully cooked scallops and halibut. Bacon wrapped dates were over cooked, but everything else was excellent. Very helpful server who shared a lot of detail on both the menu and wine list.

We had three choices for seating either patio, high top or standard. It was a thursday evening and a little cool; we choose standard. We told our server, Marlena, that it was our first time at Fahrenheit and it was our date night. She explained that because it was Covid there was a limited menu and she asked if we had questions. When asked about the meatballs she said that they were Rocco's mom recipe and delicious. We didn't think we wanted 5 to split and asked if we could get one each. She made it happen!

We split a garden greens salad with miso dressing; and interesting, salty, earthy taste.
My bride choose the turn entree and I had the newest halibut offering with corn risotto.

All good and cudos to Marlena a 10 year employee.

We live in tremont and dine there often. This was an anniversary celebration for my parents, sister and brother-in-law and us. The food was excellent as usual! And Tiffany went over and above with fabulous service, fun firecracker candles and desserts to top it all off! We always recommend Fahrenheit

Tried this restaurant upon a family member's recommendation. Wanted to be seated outdoors, but the sun was blinding and there was minimal shade, so we opted for a socially distant table inside. Our server was very difficult to hear, and seemed less than thrilled to be serving us. Our drinks and appetizer (grilled avocado toast- amazing) were delicious, and our entrees (short ribs and halibut) were good but not excellent. Tried the creme brulee for dessert; Different taste given the honey blossoms, which we enjoyed. The ambiance inside was lacking and just did not do it for me. Wanted to love it because the food was pretty good, but overall it did not blow me out of the water.

The kobe beef short ribs were spectacular as usual, and we thoroughly enjoyed the spring rolls and truffle meatball appetizers. Everyone on the planet should try the creme chocolate mousse dessert as it made all of us moan with happiness and glee. Lastly, the service from the staff was impeccable as always!

A Cleveland classic. One of the best places in one of the best neighborhoods. Even if this experience wasn’t one of the best... The COVID limitations cut table availability and forced tables onto the street w barricades. We get it, but not great. Also, food- had the halibut with corn jalapeño polenta and Kobe short ribs; the polenta was outrageously good as were the noodles that came w the short ribs, but the halibut and short ribs themselves were a B+. Very good but both were a hair overdone and a tad bit dry. Overall, still love this place and plenty of cred and history to give another chance soon at an A experience

We were seated right under a speaker outside that was very loud. We were disappointed in the small menu. The price point and the quality/quantity of food was not appropriate. Our server was understanding and polite. They comped our tab, however we insisted on paying as we were not looking for a free meal. We agreed upon at least paying for the cocktails. This was not the Fahrenheit experience we were used to.

Phenomenal service! Felt very safe and clean with all the new COVID regulations! Service was top notch! This is our second time coming in after Quarantine and we’ve been recommending this to everyone as a great place to go if anyone is nervous. They’ve done a terrific job of following guidelines and social distancing!! Also - you can’t go wrong with any of the food or cocktails!!!

My husband and I had dinner at Fahrenheit to celebrate our civil ceremony marriage and the staff went above and beyond to make us feel welcomed and special. Our server did a great job and was very attentive, and compliments to the chef for the amazing food. My husband had the Lobster Mac and I had the Kobe Beef short rib and both were so delicious. We were more than full from dinner and then they brought us complimentary dessert and celebratory champagne to top of our dining experience! Needless to say, we were very well taken care of and will revisit and recommend to our family and friends.

The halloumi and carrots, a new appetizer on the menu, are outstanding, and the entrees for me and my dinner guests were impeccable. All of the desserts were fantastic, but the orange blossom creme brulee was to die for. The icing on the cake was a surprise birthday candle and dessert for my favorite teddy bear.
If a restaurant treats a teddy bear like a king, just imagine how incredibly they will treat you!!! We had a perfect night out and cannot wait to return!
