"Tipping" San Jose Local Custom Tip by cwest03

San Jose Local Customs: 7 reviews and 3 photos

It is customary to tip in restaurants here in the states which is sometimes awkward for visitors from other countries. In any restaurant where you sit down and are severed by a waiter or waitress it's almost expected that you leave at least 15% behind for the tip. If service is really good some people will even leave 20%. It's your call. If you are ina big party the tip will sometimes be included so you should always check.
