Servers and bartenders that smoke

Advice to all servers and bartenders that smoke. Your habit negatively impacts diners experience and your tip. I've been to 2 restaurants this week - In Season and Pittsburgh Blue - and the servers were smokers. Both times our table was greeted with leftover smoke from what you couldn't exhale "out back" and it's extremely unappetizing and offensive. This left a fowl impression for the group. Your breath and odor in clothing does not dissipate. Please consider how your habit impacts your guests that you are serving - and remember we are ging out for an enjoyable experience.
