Gratuities are "not accepted" at New York City's Sushi Yasuda, per Japanese custom, reports CNN's Felicia Taylor. Employees are compensated with higher wages, but that may not be a viable option for other food-based businesses.

    T.I.P.S....To Insure Prompt Service....no prompt service, no tips...regardless of the server's financial situation. If a server wants more money, they have to become above average servers or find another job. They can't expect to just show up and have customers give them money "just because". There are millions of people earning low wages right now...are we supposed to start giving them tips too?

    I agree with Todd, I only want to tip if the service has been phenomenal. However, since that's just not the case, I am a good tipper when I want to be.

    Tipping should be for exceptional over the top more than expected service. However today because we know our servers primary income comes from tips we give tips for adequate expected service, because we don't want to be a jerk and have a person's livelihood messed with. But it really screws up the idea of tipping, for exceptional services.
