A few weeks ago, I was in Miami and I just have to say that I absolutely hate it when Miami Beach restaurants automatically add gratuity. I can understand automatic gratuity if I was in a party of 6 or more, but I was dining solo. The Miami Beach restaurant added a whopping 18% tip to my bill.
I understand that this is a wide practice in South Beach because there are so many European and Australian tourists who don’t tip and think gratuity is included in the menu prices.
Should restaurants automatically include tip when dining solo?
