    15% -18% for base,  never less, I never waitressed but I understand some things are not their fault and I know they count on tips.  Often more though, if everything went right, usually 20%, if they went above and beyond then more.   I think 30-40% is a bit much unless I was super picky or had pecial needs and requirements, or honestly if I noticed another table did NOT leave them a tip.

    my Fiance tips less than me as a rule, he makes less and he was raised in a lower income home,  but we both agree that 15% is a base.  He is getting better about tipping a little more for excellent service.
