Everything about Paris

Everything about Paris
Bonne le Vie
 
True or False
 
tips are generally included in the price  of Parisian meals?
 
Answer:
True
 
Fortunately, service est compris in the price you see on the menu in most French restaurants. While extra tipping isn't unheard of, it is not required or expected. Still, if you want to ingratiate yourself at a place you might visit again, leave an extra euro at a cafe or a few at a restaurant.
 
When Kerry and I traveled to Seattle, and to Santa Fe, we noticed that the fine dining restaurants were adding on the tip automatically. It's in small print on the menu and if you don't see it you will on the bill. For years  restaurants have been adding larger gratuities to large parties, and some will add on a service fee for separate checks.
 
Bon Appetite
