I am just curious after reading posts about Chez Panisse and the French Laundry how you all are tipping after reporting of sour, snooty, or just plain unimpressive service at high end restaurants? Is it 20%, 15% or what? Since you've already paid for the food the tip would be for the expertise of the server. Part of this would be attitude toward the patron and how well a server reads them,ie:does he want to be alone or conversed with? I counted 5 mistakes in the French Laundry post from Kristin,at$465 is this 15%. Is a snooty attitude rewarded with 15% or 20% because your at FL or CP?
Just trying to be politcally correct.
