Tipping

Tipping on a North American scale is not expected, though is appreciated.

  • Service charges Service charges and tips are included in restaurant bills and taxi fares.

  • Reward service If the service has been particularly helpful in a midrange to top-end restaurant, 5% is generally appropriate, while 10% is considered generous.

  • Paying by credit card If you're paying by credit card in a restaurant, space will be left for adding a tip.
