Crown Grill, Sabatini's Restaurant and Ultimate Balcony Dining on Grand Princess
Crown Grill on Grand Princess:
From 6:30pm to 11:00pm on Promenade Deck, the Crown Grill on Grand Princess offers classic steak house dining. Shrimp Cocktail, Brie and Papaya Quesadilla, Clam Chowder, and Caesar Salads are examples of starters. New York Strip, Filet Mignon, Porterhouse Steaks, Rib-Eyes, fish of the day, and baked chicken are standard main entrees. Desserts include raspberry creme brulee, pecan pie, and cheesecake. We highly recommend the New York Strip Steak, and the Prime Rib.
Food quality and staff service are superb!
Reservations are required, and, you should make them as soon as possible as Crown Grill will sell out on most evenings. There is a per-diner charge to dine in Crown Grill -- it is currently $25USD.
Sabatini's Italian Restaurant on Grand Princess:
Sabatini's Italian Restaurant on Grand Princess is located on the Promenade Deck. Sabatini's is open from 11:00am to 1:00pm for lunch, and from 6:00pm to 11:00pm for dinner. With its columns and scalloped banquettes, Sabatini's transports you to the ambience of an Italian trattoria (family restaurant). Prosciutto with Melon, fried calamari, and Zucchini Dorati represent appetizers. Soups and salads include Tomato Soup with Grilled Shellfish, White Bean & Chicken Broth Soup, and shrimp and marinated artichoke salad. There are a small selection of pastas followed by Secondi Piatti (second course) selections such as Roasted Chilean Bass, Broiled Langoustines, Lobster, stuffed chicken, Veal chops, and Sauteed Tiger Prawns over Creamed Polenta. Typically at Sabatini's, you choose the Secondi Piatti which is the main course, and wait staff bring the other entrees out on trays for your selection. If there's room for dessert, we suggest the Tiramisu, Espresso Creme Brulee, or White Chocolate Mousse.
This restaurant does such an outstanding job from entree presentation and food quality to staff service, and we strongly suggest you plan at least one evening to include this dining experience!
