Last night we went to a new restaurant we found on Yelp. We had a terrible experience. Food was terrible (although this isn't fault of waitress). Service was terrible. There was only one other table occupied in the whole place so you would think service would be good. Nope. It took forever for them to bring drinks. Then the food came. DH and DD got theirs. Mine didn't come out. Then waitress goes and sits down two tables away from me and starts eating her dinner. (I have not issue with her eating BUT I think she should make sure her customer has her food first). When she done with her food she goes and gets my food and brings it to me. By this time DH and DD were done eating.
Then it is another long wait to get the check. and forget about drink refills.
I tipped 10%. I seriously debated giving nothing. In my opinion tips are voluntary. I believe you should always tip and I do, usually 20% but I am NOT giving 20% for terrible service.
What say you? should I have given nothing?
