What makes you tip over 15%?
When you are at a restaurant, what can a waiter or waitress do to really impress you. And, when this happens, do you leave a larger tip?
I do leave a larger tip whenever the service is very impressive.
Can you make that specific? What can a waiter or waitress do to really impress you?
When the server is very attentive and asks if I need anything such as napkins and has a good attitude. I know how hard these positions are and usually they deserve it. Only once have I had such bad service that I didn't tip & I didn't return ther
My daughter and niece both work as servers, the pay is half minimum wage. The going tip rate is 20% and these people work hard for very little pay, most of the time. I usually leave between 20-25%.
I always leave at least a 20% tip, except when the service is either really poor or really great. If the service is poor, I leave 15%. If the service is great I may leave up to 40% or more. Great service to me includes paying attention to me, asking about ny needs, chatting a little and treating me like a person, refilling my drink before I need to ask, anticipating anything I might need before I ask, and being polite.
Can you make that specific. What attitude or actions by a waiter or waitress make for great service?
When I was training for one of my first waiting jobs, the team leader reminded us that when people go out for dinner it is often a special time with emotional connections. If you make the emotional experience a positive one you are doing a good job .

Do you give a tip if the service is bad?I can't bring myself to not leave a tip even when I've gotten lousy service. I think perhaps they are having a bad day, things are happening in their life they can't control or perhaps if I leave them a tip they will give the next person better service.
