I went for a friends 35th birthday on 6th September. There were 10 of us, who had starters and main - which were lovely, plus plenty of drinks to accompany with a bill of nearly $900+ within 2 hours.
On arrival I asked if they could put a birthday cake in the back so I could surprise my friend, I was told it would be $5 per piece cut and given out??! So $50 for us to eat our own cake, I could understand if they offered a cake to buy, or if we weren't having a meal there and were just coming in for our own cake.
However expecting us to pay was a joke, had we of been able to eat the cake for free we would have most likely spent a further $100+ behind the bar rather, but as we would have to pay we left after dinner with the cake, and went to a bar a couple of door down who were very accommodating. Very silly policy, obviously management are very short sighted - it is best policy to ensure the customers are happy. For the sake of a cake, even if it had been $2 a head we could understand, but when you have paid $50+ for a cake, to pay a further $50 to eat it was not happening. Silly little policies like this will mean none of us will be eating there again, plus the other people who heard about it the next day. Small businesses need protecting, but it works both ways for customers too.
