Review - N'Tini (Mandeville)

My mom's birthday was this week and she got a card in the mail for $24 off of her meal at N'Tini in Mandeville. No strings attached either. No requirement to purchase anything else. No stipulation that it couldn't be used for one of the specials. So off we went.
We decided to go last night because Thursday's special is "Surf and Turf" and buy one get one free martinis.
First off...the service was absolutely incredible. Our waiter, Corey, was on top of things from the get go...bringing more bread right as we were finishing what was on the table. Bringing new martinis as soon as was finished our last sip of the previous one....etc etc.
Now the food...
At $28 for a filet with a lobster tail and a side dish...it was a steal! And that's not even figuring in the $24 off we were going to get!
The steak was cooked absolutely perfectly! For my side I got the creamed spinach and it was some of the best I'd ever had. My mom got the augratin potatoes and the asparagus...both delicious.
For dessert we shared the white chocolate bread pudding. While I didn't think it was quite as good as mine...it was still incredible.
Here's the breakdown of the bill....
2 Surf and turf specials: $56
Asparagus (mom ordered an extra side): $6
4 martinis: $16
2 coffees: $4.50
After tip and tax the total was $114..but then we got to take off our $24!
Service: 10 out of 10
Food: 10 out 10
Value: 8 out of 10
