Last week a group of us went out for dinner to a casual restaurant. It was a Saturday night and there were six of us. As we tend to do, we spend a lot of time talking and were there for close to three hours. The service was fine and the server did not rush us.
My question is: How should our server been tipped? I felt that we should have been more generous with our tip since the server missed at least one "turnover" on the table. The others did not agree. If it weren't such a busy night, it would have been fine, but on a Saturday night, most restaurants around here have a wait for tables.
Do you think the standard tip is OK? Would you have tipped more? Would you have left more on the table yourself? We have another outing coming up on a Saturday and I don't want us to wear out our welcome.
