Tipping on Wine

Hi Everyone.

Today I wanted to discuss tipping; specifically, tipping on bottles of wine…..

 

There seems to be a school of thought that you don’t have to tip on a bottle of wine; I’m here to tell you that that thought is completely and utterly wrong.   Let’s break it down:

*If you order a burger and a beer, would you tip on both of those items?  Yes

*Same burger, but now you’ve ordered a glass of wine; would you tip on both of those items?  Yes

So, if you’d tip on a bottle of beer and a glass of wine, why wouldn’t you tip on a bottle of wine?

LET ME BE CLEAR:  when you dine at a restaurant, it is customary to tip on the pre-tax subtotal of EVERYTHING ON YOUR BILL!    So if you spent $10 on a beer or $1200 on a bottle of LaTour,  you tip a minimum of 15%-20%  on all of it!

INSIDER TIP:  if you are someone who does NOT tip on your bottles of wine,  the managers make a note, on Open Table, under your reservation name…..so the next time you try to get a table, at your favorite hot spot, I can guarantee you it will be profoundly difficult.

Just do the right thing, and tip appropriately.

Thanks for reading.
