Follow the same rules for tipping the wait staff. Tip a helpful sommelier 15 to 20 percent of the wine cost. If not, then lower the tip 5 or even 10 percent to reflect the diner’s dissatisfaction with the service. Tip 5 to 10 percent more or less when required. Restaurant patrons often debate over how much to tip. Customarily tip $1 for beer and wine and $2 for mixed drinks. Do the opposite if the sommelier gave great service. If the wait staff performed its duties exceptionally well, then raise the standard 15 to 20 percent to 20 to 25 percent to show the staff the diner’s appreciation for superior service. Apply the same basic principles used for tipping a sommelier to bartenders.

Tip 5 to 10 percent more or less when required. The 15 to 20 percent recommendation assumes the wait staff performed its duties well. Tip 15 to 20 percent of the tab for good service.
