  1. Thank you for posting this! My husband and I will be dining in the Queen Victoria Room on Valentine's Day 2012. While I realize the menu will be different, this gives us a general idea of what we can expect. We're very excited about this experience, and thank you for the "sneak peak"!

  2. We're glad you visited. Thanks for letting us know it was helpful. You put this stuff out there and wonder if anyone ever sees it.

    You and your husband will have a great experience. Hopefully you can catch a pre-dinner drink and listen to the swing band beforehand. I'm sure they are going to kick-it-up-a-notch for Valentine's Day

    Have fun and let us know how it was.
