The same thing happened to me while I was vacationing at the GBP in September. I e-mailed Felix Schlokat: firstname.lastname@example.org. He responded promptly(!) and was very friendly. We actually met him while there and he was very sweet. We didn't make a reservation at any restaurant (though I have heard you can by e-mailing him), I just mentioned that it was going to be my mom's birthday on a specific date and could they please do something special for her on that day. On the day of her birthday we returned to our room with helium balloons everywhere. At dinner that night the waiters brought her a special cake and sang happy birthday to her. It was very sweet, and I didn't tell them that it was her birthday - I only e-mailed Felix.
We ate at Le Gourmet (Coba) that night and I would highly recommend it for your birthday. The food was great and the service was exceptional. We actually decided to eat there twice in our 7 day vacation as we thought it was the best a la carte restaurant.
I should mention that we didn't need to make reservations prior to leaving. On our first day we stopped by the lobby and made reservations for the entire week. It was great.
Hope this information helps.
Our room on my moms birthday:
Us at Le Gourmet for her Birthday dinner. It was fantastic! We had a late reservation and had amazing service. We didn't feel rushed either.
The cute (and tasty!) cake for my mom's birthday (and we celebrated both of our birthdays).
