If you want a separate check, just ask your server right up-front. It’s usually not a problem. But if you wait until the end of your meal, it probably ain’t happening. The only other time your server might deny this request is if the bar is exceptionally busy, or you have a really big group. If that’s the case, you’d better figure out how to use that calculator on your phone.
ACCEPTABLE FORMS OF PAYMENT
You can pay your guest check with cash. Cash is great. We also accept Visa, Mastercard and Amex. Sorry, but we do NOT accept Discover Card, Diner’s Club, PayPal, Bitcoin, Traveler’s Checks, personal checks, shiny beads or any other trinkets. Your server will collect payment, and complete the transaction for you at the table. Yeah, no cashier up front. That’s how fancy this joint this is.
TIP OR DIE
Help us maintain a quality staff. Always tip your server appropriately. Tipping for service in restaurants and bars is the currently accepted custom in this country. It is also how our servers and bartenders make their living. So if you can’t afford to tip, then the truth is you can’t afford to eat at full-service restaurants. It’s just that simple. If you think tipping is a scam, then just buy a TV dinner, stay home, and watch wrestling.
We never add a built-in gratuity to our checks because we expect our clientele to be better than that, and we expect our servers to provide the best possible service at all times. So please show them your appreciation. Besides, people who make a habit of tipping poorly will eventually be banned for being great big losers.
