Re: Is more than 18% gratuity expected? Im confused...
If there is forced gratuity, I will not pay a penny more. If there isn't, chances are about 75% that you'd getting more than 18%.
My FIL works with a man who has 10 children. He argues the party gratuity every time saying it's not a party, it's a family. If they take the gratuity off, he tips well. If it were my family, I'd ask for it to be removed, or not return to that establishment. I think it's ridiculous that a family gets gratuity added, but if it's a party of 8 adults, that's fine.
