Re: “Il Cortile Del Re

I had dinner here on new year's eve and there is only one word to describe my experience: TERRIBLE. The prix fixe menu (amuse, soup, pasta, entree, dessert) ran $60/person... which seemed reasonable, based on the good things I'd heard about the place. I was completely wrong. The amuse was half a slice of tomato, slice of scallop, basil... nothing special. The soup, a chunky sausage and lentil, was tepid and very one-note. The pasta was a penne alla vodka with salmon... and the salmon had the consistency of canned tuna. All but one of us were appalled by it. The entree was basically a surf & turf, with a decent but not-special steak and cold, off-textured prawns (most of us couldn't even eat them... they were almost custardy in texture). the dessert was a molten chocolate souffle cake that tasted like it was made from a mix.
and the worst part... at $60 a head... we were only visited by our server once or twice. we ran out of water and went half an hour without. factor in a couple of $50 bottles of wine, and we ended up paying an arm and a leg for the WORST food we've had dining out in charleston. I would not recommend this restaurant AT ALL, especially not for a special occasion with an expensive prix fixe menu.
