Top of the Hub dropped the ball

So my boyfriend's parents are visiting from Brazil and we took them to Top of the Hub for RW and to celebrate his 30th birthday. We made reservations on a week in advanced and they called us only hours before our reservation to tell us they were not having a RW menu - obviously not enough time for us to make reservations at another RW place.
On the reservation notes on open table I told them about the birthday. During dinner, I snuck out to pull our waiter aside to told him to bring out my boyfriend a dessert with a candle (because I knew that he wouldn't normally order dessert). Then 10 minutes later the food runner comes out with our desserts - but no candle!!! And he sets the cake infront on my boyfriend and everyone just looks confused and are wondering why he has a dessert - as if it is a mistake. So I am totally embarassed and the waiter is nowhere be seen . . . so I explain to my boyfriend that I had ordered it for him and it was supposed to be with a birthday candle - but they messed up.
2 minutes later into dessert, the waiter comes out with a lame scoop of vanilla ice cream and a candle and says "oops sorry we didn't get it the first time."
What really pissed me off more than the embarrasment in front of my boyfriend's parents was that there were 4 other tables through out the night who got cake/dessert brought to them with birthday candles!
