i do give tips, only if i am satisfied with the service. it is okay if it is slow as long as the people who serves are not snobs and always smiles. i used to work on fast food and restaurants and what ever the problems you have you have to separate it on the hours when you are working. tell them the truth when they ask your day then if not still should continue smilling. do you give more or do you give less tips and why

If i find that the restaurant is fairly nice looking and food is priced that usually sets the way for a good tip. Another thing that influences my tip is the service which in most cases is key. Knowing that part of the tip also goes to kitchen staff if the food takes to long the tip goes down a bit.

I do give tips when the food is reasonably priced, service is good and there is no additional service charge being added on the total food cost. Some restaurants do bill us for service charge and in such particular case, I don't give tips.

It all depends, on the service, attitude of servers, alot of servers are not nice, or even if they are, they are very serious and look like they dont want to be there. So, with that being said, 1. smile/friendliest 2. how long it takes for the food 3. if they forget something I have asked for more then 2 times
