Ok, so first question (alongside my other thread) is does promising a high tip get better service? If so, how does one go about this tastefully - and what is a high % as a tip? It's just that I have seen some lovely restaurants reviewed here and elsewhere where the service sounds average to shoddy, and for quite high prices and tip ($ amount that is). Then again, are we being held to ransom?
Also, what happens when you refuse to tip, or lower the % / $ amount - due to bad service. Does anyone do this? If so when and why? If not then why not because if I under deliver to my clients either they never come back and / or they don;t pay the full $ on the current project (sic 'meal')?
