Complementary appetizers

FOUND IN A NOVEL: He gave Qwilleran and Polly a table in a window overlooking the lake and served them complementary appetizers: french-fried oysters.

This was written by one of my favorite novelists, but I can't help but believe that she should have used complimentary, not complementary. After all, the oysters would be compliments of the house.
