    @ K1, I certainly have no qualms with reducing or eliminating a 15-20% tip if the service level is poor especially when in the USA. However, the reduction would never just be a payment of a smaller amount, it would always be with a comment on what had gone wrong. Usually I would have already made a comment during the meal service so it would never be a surprise. I believe that you should always give a company or a server a chance to rescue the situation.
