Description: Fahrenheit is the South Bay’s premiere venue for dining, entertainment and special events. With innovative design concepts by award winning designer Jones Baker. Fahrenheit Restaurant & Lounge, located in the heart of downtown San Jose, celebrates Contemporary California Cuisine. With the use of organic and sustainable ingredients, our "farm to table" approach uses nothing but the best produce, poultry, fish, and meat available from local farmers, ranchers, and fishermen. These ingredients provide the inspiration behind our ever-evolving menu. Wild Herb Crusted Sea Bass, Creekstone Hanger Steak, Ahi Tuna Tartare Tostada, and Asian Pear & Green Apple Salad are just some of the samples on the seasonal menu. The beverage program adopts the same philosophy, featuring boutique wines and beer from local vineyards and breweries, and delicious craft cocktails created by our master mixologists. We invite you to experience the best of California!

“Small plate surprise”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

What a find for an early dinner upon arriving in San Jose after a long day of travel. Convenient to my hotel and I lucked upon a happy hour that included not just drinks, but happy hour food selections as well. I had a variety of small plates, all at half-price. The cheese board was my favorite, since I am a sucker for Humboldt Fog and there was an extra large serving of it on the cheese board. Service from the bartender/waiter was excellent. The small plates were perfect to satisfy a jet-lagged appetite. The place turns into a bar scene early in the evening complete with DJ and mirrored ball, so eat early unless you want loud music.

“My favorite go to restaurant!!”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

You can't miss here!! Food is outstanding and innovative. And if you're just in the mood for a burger(they grind their own) the happy hour $5 will have you coming back time and again.
Short ribs off the hook. Little fish tacos- yum. The ribeye perfect. Every meal we've had is awesome!!
Everyone there,owner, staff alike, care, and it shows!

“Great service, great food.”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Whenever we have eaten there, the atmosphere was quiet and inviting. The noise level is low so you can actually have a conversation with your date.
The last time we had halibut and it was done to perfection.
The service is always excellent!

“Great Happy Hour!”
Reviewed May 7, 2012

I saw on their Facebook, that they were offering a new happy hour menu, so I gathered some friends to go check it out. The bar was full, so we grabbed a seat in their lounge area.

Great price points on all of the food, with all items being either $5, $4 or $3. We opted to share a mix of items. Carolina pulled pork sliders(great flavor!), spicy chicken drummettes(my favortie item, meat fell right off the bone) for $4 each. And the Fahenheit fries (mix of regular potato and sweet potato) and chipotle mac and cheese (nice little kick) for $3 each.

Generous portions of each, and our server was on point.

They also offer half off drink specials on beers, well drinks, their specialty cocktail list and house sangria. We stuck to beers, but the specialty cocktail list looked tempting.
