No Tips
No Tips

We’ve eaten at several “No Tipping” establishments over the past few months, most recently at two bars with lite food fare in the City.

I didn’t notice a significant increase in the prices of the food or drink, which was a bit of a surprise.

The service was fine and the staff was friendly. There was, perhaps, a sense of relief from the burden of “earning” a tip….or, perhaps, I was projecting my feelings.

When the check came, I had to remind myself of the “No Tipping” policy. I paid but left with sense of something being incomplete.

I wonder whether this new policy will become more popular.

    Hmmmm... not sure about this one. This is a good ol’ Fashion cash earning job. It’s also a good commission job. People have a chance to earn more than the next guy if they deliver better service. I always tip well, if the service is earned of course. Entrepreneurship in training really....
    yeah. I decided. I don’t like it.

    I have always tipped on the entire bill and have not looked at it like an extra to the waitstaff, rather I understood that it was in reality part of their income, with the per hour salary less than other salary only positions. If the point of no tip establishment is that their staff is earning a higher salary which compensates for lack of tip I would be comfortable not leaving one---haven't been in such a restaurant as yet. Reality is we actually don't know tip policy in most restaurants we eat in----are they pooled, do they share with the servers, etc.

    We always tip well to generously if the service is good. 25%ish. People work hard and usually it is very meaningful. Especially if we have a relationship with the restaurant or servers. Haven’t seen no-tip yet. Probably would anyway. Lol.

    I have spoken to folks who worked for "No Tipping" establishments and their overall take home pay has gone down. They want to work for tips. I will pass on "No Tipping" establishments if possible.
