The Pinnacle Grill – The service is deliberately slow in The Pinnacle Grill. But unlike the experience in the Canaletto, permitting time to linger in luxurious ambiance and to savor the cuisine of an exceptionally fine dining experience is most appreciated. Therefore, when the opportunity arose for a second experience to dine in The Pinnacle Grill on this cruise, well, “anything worth doing is worth doing to excess.”
The Pinnacle Grill pastry chef’s special ultimate chocolate dessert – The atmosphere in the Pinnacle is refined, but relaxing. The backlit wall panels of montages of Dutch master painters and their most famous works cast a warm glow of multi-colors throughout the otherwise dimly lit room. Service as before was impeccable. And to be brief, the fillet mignon served this time with lobster tail was even better, if that is possible. But what topped the meal off this time was a surprise creation by the pastry chef, “The Ultimate Finale Duo of White and Dark Chocolate.” Perhaps the chef has a tendency to exaggerate the titles of his desserts, but I left convinced this one was not hyperbole.
Would dining more than once, or even multiple times, at The Pinnacle Grill on a cruise be too much? As Mae West used to say, “Too much of a good thing is wonderful.”
