Tip 15 to 20 percent of the tab for good service. Tip 5 to 10 percent more or less when required. If possible, tip her directly. Tip the wait staff at a hotel buffet the standard 15 to 20 percent for good service. The 15 to 20 percent recommendation assumes the wait staff performed its duties well. Follow the same rules for tipping the wait staff. On the contrary, if the wait staff seemed rude, ignored the guest or made the dining experience less than enjoyable, then by all means leave a less than generous tip. Leaving a tip at a restaurant gives the restaurant valuable feedback on its service.
If the diner received outstanding service and the wait staff focused on the dining experience, then expect to leave a generous tip. Tip the wait staff at a hotel buffet the standard 15 to 20 percent for good service. Customarily tip $1 for beer and wine and $2 for mixed drinks. Tip 15 to 20 percent of the total bill, including taxes. Apply the same basic principles used for tipping a sommelier to bartenders. If not, then lower the tip 5 or even 10 percent to reflect the diner’s dissatisfaction with the service. If ordering food from the front of the restaurant but it is delivered to a table, then the rules vary depending on the restaurant’s atmosphere. Fast-food style buffets require no tip. If the restaurant resembles a standard sit-down restaurant, then tip 5 to 10 percent after delivery. Do the opposite if the sommelier gave great service.

I want to be an encouragement to people and I want to lead by example by making sure that I fully use all my gifts and talents. For Bill Travis, co-owner of Wholly Smokin Downtown, the party was an opportunity to boost business and work with other local restaurants. It brings people out, he said.
