This past December, my fiance surprised me with a brief overnight trip to celebrate our 4 year anniversary. He planned a romantic dinner at Di Valletta where the maitre d was very friendly and accommodating. He sat us at a comfortable table next to a large window with a beautiful view and brought us a complimentary bottle of champagne to help us celebrate the special occasion. I am a sucker for attention to detail and the staff at Di Valletta delivered.
Our waiter was very professional and helpful with any questions we had. Olive oil and a delicious tuna tapenade were served with a nice assortment of breads and the chef brought us each a small refreshing complimentary appetizer between courses. We ordered the seared blackened jumbo scallops for our appetizer and the NY strip and lobster shrimp and grits as entrees. Shrimp and grits are my favorite food and it is often rare that I come across a good one. Di Valletta's rendition was fabulous! My fiance prefers his beef cooked extremely rare and his steak was exactly on par with his liking.
We also received complimentary dessert of our choice for our anniversary and we chose a tasty and refreshing fruit torte which our waiter graciously boxed up for us to enjoy in our room later since we were so full from dinner.
We headed up to our room where my fiance had gone earlier that day and already settled us in. As I surveyed the room and all its amenities my fiance dropped down to one knee and surprised me with a marriage proposal!
Our stay at Grandover was certainly memorable and I have recently been trying to get in touch with the woman who handles weddings in hopes that we may be able to host our wedding reception there next December.
