Why add gratuity for drinks. It's not like they're waiting on you hand and foot. How is getting drinks for 3 any different than 3 people getting drinks at the bar.

That's stupid. Food is a wayyyy different scenario.

This happened to me at the one in Lafayette. It was five of us after my wife's best friend's wedding. We were drinking $20 glasses of wine among other things and ran up a $500+ bill. I was wasted and picked up the tab. Didn't notice they auto gratted the bill and tipped like I normally would. Luckily, only the gratted amount, 20%, was charged.

That'd be cool, but how do you know who these non-tipping people are beforehand?



Too easy.

I was at the Loft in Perkins Row, and they have two for one signature drinks


look, i don't work there but i do know someone that smoked a cig outside with rob pattison once at the loft.

don't know how much their sig drink costs, but lets just say they're $10...you get 2 rounds of 2 drinks totaling $20 for the 4 drinks.

i would probably tip her $5 on that...the waitress knows that, but is thinking that i'm getting $40 worth of drinks for $20 and wants her 20% tip for the cost of 4 drinks, not 20% for 2 drinks & 2 freebies...hence the 40%.

i hope that clears everything up.

also, why don't these places make their waitresses wear slutty uniforms anymore?

My rule of thumb is $1 per drink, $3 per pitcher, $5 per bottle of wine.

I range between 10-20% on food based on service quality.

I dont tip pickup orders, dont know if that makes me a dick.

I hate it when they add gratuity. It makes me not want to tip. I tip plenty generous, and when they add it, it's like an insult

Neither do I. But I was a dick long before they came up with tipping the hostess or whatever.

I like auto grat bc its usually lower than what i'd typically tip. I dont see what the big deal is.

And even then i sometimes tip on top of it if they're good.

How is bringing the food from the kitchen to the table worth almost half of what the bill for the food itself actually costs?

I'm having a hard time understanding tips over 35% unless it is in a really nice place. Even then, it probably doesn't make sense.

You weren't going to give a generous top anyway? Man don't be such a cheapskate.

40% is too high but, it was still a dick move for not tipping her correctly.

For me:
Haircut lady: 25% (totalling $25); Christmas: 50%
Food: Base tip 15%, adjusted up (capped @ 25%) or down (as low as 1%) based on food quality and service; take out 0%

Why should I tip for food or drink I had to consume all by myself?

we had two drinks each


1. how much are the drinks?
2. did the bill say "gratuity 40%" or was there just a total that was too high?
3. could it be that she just didn't input the special, and you were just paying for 6 drinks versus 3?
