10 dollars...thats 20%. 15% is polite and 20% is generous. 25% and you made someones night really happy.
Adequate service 10%. Good 15% . Really wow me 20%.
The nicer the restaurant the better I tip.A $50 meal I would leave 10-11 dollars.
If the waitress was nice, probably $10; if she was rude, a penny.
$5-$10 depending on the service and how nice the server was.
usually 10 - 15%, 20%if they have exceeded ur expectations
tipping is foreign in new zealand also. wait staff here usually need experience in the job and get paid a fair enough wage without having to ask for tips. from what i've heard it seems to be a very low paying job overseas, and i understand why tipping must be important there.
Most wait staff get paid LESS than minimum as a ba<x>se wage, and therefore rely on tips.<br />
Unless the service was bad, I typically tip 20% (10 dollars in this case), because I feel the need to make up for the cheap b1tches and b4stards who stiff the wait staff.<br />
Given what I've seen in here, I guess it is a good thing.<br />
Also, I always leave at least 5 dollars, even if my bill was only 5 dollars.
I always give 15% of the price<br />
Giving a tip is just the polite thing to do
Up to the nearest dollar if service is poor.<br />
10% at most places where there is service.<br />
12% for excellent service.<br />
Nothing if the owner is running the whole show, including service, because he/she is not working for a pittance wage, but gets the whole profit.
At 15%, that's $7.50 for a total bill of $57.50. At 20%, it would be $10 or 60 bucks even. Hope that helps.
$10.00. I stick with the 20% rule, rounding down to the next full dollar amount.

Somewhere between US$7.50 and 10, depending on the quality of the service and, frankly, whether I liked the server.
in such a restaurant: nothing at all ... I´d went out and chose an other restaurant where I cant get a meal for $10.- ! lol
At laest 7.50
in the Spanish culture tips do not exist thus i do not
If you come to America and pull that, you will not be welcome at most resteraunts.
i just get some1 else 2 it 4 me lol its not i diss ur culture
I'm just sayin... The way it is done here, if you don't tip, you will not be welcome.
Darkness, That is true here where a lot of wait staff is actually exempted from minimum wage. So I always tip well here. But different countries have different cultures (and different employee compensation rules). There are countries where leaving a tip the way we do here is considered an insult.
I have traveled the world and am a firm believer of the rule "When in Rome do what the Romans do" Darkness and 66ALCAT, I would urge both of you to become familiar with local customs of anyplace you visit.
I guess questions like this one really are silly considering this is a global site
I would tip as much as I feel like. They already get paid. They should be happy. Use your tip money to buy dessert from now on, or put all of your would-be tip money in a jar to save to go out and have a meal
Most wait staff get paid LESS than minimum. People like you should stay home.
Right on. If you're in the US, this is the rule: If you can't afford to tip, you can't afford to go out. Period. Stay home or eat at McDonalds.
