Default Re: what to tip Maitre d?

Did your maitre'd come by your table and introduce himself? Did he then do anything other then say hello every night? I just don't get tipping someone who does nothing other then sucking up. I would rather tip the busboy the extra 5. Or the poor dishwasher.
I do realize some maitre'd s actually do a service, in which case I assume 5 dollars is a reasonable amount to tip. I guess it depends.
