If the restaurant has "comment cards," I always fill one out as well. Having been a server, it's nice to be thanked (to management) for a job well done. Even the reverse is ok - especially if the meal suk'd (which might be the server's fault if brought out cold or dried up).
I use 10% for weak service and up to 20$ for excellent - keeping in mind a minimum of 8% is required to be claimed on taxes. Oh and I always give cash tips even when charging the meal. ;)

people need to NOT tip if they get BAD service....sometimes the servers think they are doing us a favor by doing their job.

EXACTLY @ encorez---We should not have to tip bad service, but we often do and I am personally trying to stop rewarding poor service. The problem is what you think is bad service and what I think is bad service could be totally different.
Comment cards are something I rarely see around here. I guess I need to start asking for the comment cards. HA! Maybe if I ask my service will be top notch as they waiter/waitress knows I am going to report the good and or bad. IDK-- :)

I tip absolutely nothing when the service is bad and I call the manager over (rarely happens). Otherwise I stay in the 15-20%... sometimes its hard. We went to Maestros a couple weeks ago and the bill was in the few thousands so a 15% tip would put me at $500. lol

i tip regardless of the service but definitely more if service is excellent. being a waiter during college days, i know what its like being in the service field and i tend to tip more knowing how a majority relies on their tips to get by. i find if i frequent the same establishment often and the service is bad but the food is good, the ones who gets the bigger tips will know me better and eventually tell the others.
