Default Asking For the Raise I Expected

Back in September, the owner told me in the interview for my current graphic artist job that within the first three months I would get a dollar raise each month ($3, making it a rate of $15/hr) if I did well and that if I didn't get the raises, I could speak with him and explain why I deserve them. Three months in I finally got a $1 raise and was told I'd get a $4,000 bonus, probably later in the year. My supervisor who's been here ten years, privately told me that she doesn't even make $15 and that the owner probably just had higher expectations for the company to afford raises eventually.

He's taking me to lunch today and I wonder if the raise issue would be worth bringing up. Obviously I can't talk about what my supervisor said, but the issue does frustrate me. I've done an exceptional job and I feel misled.
