i would like to know if everyone tips the Mater ’d we just got off of the valor last sunday we had our tips with our cruise
we seen the Mater ’d only 1 time and that was only for about 15 second if even that we ate in the washinton dinning room
we didn`t tip him because we never seen him but we did give extra to our waiter he was very nice to us knew us by name
We normally don't hand out a tip to the big boss either. We tip our waiters and waitresses well but unless the Maitre'd has gone out of his way to rearrange our seats or change the time of our dinner, etc, we don't tip him. It is our opinion that the Maitre'd is more than adequately compensated, unlike the servers.
