Il Fornaio 4/3/2006

So my fiance and I, on our quest to find the perfect, reasonably priced, venue for our ceremony/reception, went to check out il fornaio in Carmel, CA. The restaurant was very nice, and their event coordinator was extremely accomodating, coming up with suggestions for the reception and taking the time to answer our questions. Since we'd never eaten at the restaurant, however, we thought it would be a good idea to see if we even liked the food... my fiance had the lobster ravioli, which he didnt care for. The texture of the 'lobster' was almost like mush and the ravioli was a little tough. Me, I had the shrimp with lemon. The shrimp was not cooked enough for my taste and the potatoes were soft. It was supposed to come with grilled vegetables... instead it came with spinach salad, which I dont much care for. The dinner bread was hard and there was lint in the wine glass! The dessert tray looked delicious so we decided to order their 'flourless' cake. No, this may be our fault but I think they should have let us know that flourless cake i not really cake. Instead, its a super sweet, super rich chocolate wedge. Now, the only thing I enjoyed was the coffee we had to complement the dessert. However, I would have enjoyed it more if there weren't green stuff floating in the creamer and if the SECOND creamer we asked for didnt have more lint! $70 for this meal? Definitely not worth it... and definitly won't be subjecting our guests to this... more
