Default Re: How many of you auto adjust a tip at a restaurant

We always tip in a restaurant. If the service was good, my minimum is 20%. If I feel the service was lacking, then it is 10%. I very rarely leave anything under 20%. Recently, an upper scale restaurant open near our home. It is packed every night and local celebrities have been know to dine there. My son said he dined there last week and left about a 25/30% tip. As he was walking out the door, the waitress came up to him and hugged him and said "thank you". She continued on to tell him that she just doesn't see decent tips there, even with all the local celebs. And my son said she was a great waitress. Makes you wonder, doesn't it?
