  • We always leave 20% if service is good and less than 10% if service sucks. But 20% of $40 is $8 so 18% is $7.20.

  • I'd say at least $8 as well. More if it was good or great service!

  • 18% would be $7.20 But if you have good service, you'll want to leave more.

  • I leave 20% or more if service is exceptional and if service is less than exceptional I leave 10% or less. Today hubby and I spent $41 for lunch and I left a $10 tip....we had a very friendly waitress who deserved her tip. I hate to to tip less than 20%....servers here make $3.36 an hour. I have no issues paying $10 for a little over an hour of someones service.
