We were just there. We were seated in the front row, at the corner. We saw everything just fine from our table, even with people standing at the railing. It was the perfect view. When we were there last week, there was plenty of fresh fruit (and not just chocolate covered strawberries). There was also milk, lemonade, coffee, tea, and water. I agree there is only so much dessert one person could eat, but I viewed it as a private viewing of the fireworks without the major throngs of crowds and the desserts were just a perk. I noticed a few tables ate no dessert at all, so they must have had the same outlook. I do agree appetizer and desserts would be nice; you could almost make it a meal then--at a lower cost than most table service meals!
