Tip #185 - Tipping Etiquette #6: Restaurant
15% is the standard rate, however, exellent service deserves more. If the food is not satisfactory, speak to the manager, don't just leave without tipping. Make sure and check your bill carefully. In some restaurants, the tip is automatically added. If there is a maitre d' that helps you get a table, tip him/her $5 to $10. If you check your coat, tip the person $1.
