Le Cinq Questions & Answers

Fayetteville, AR

Hi, I am coming to the restaurant in May and would like to understand what is usually done when it comes to tipping? I understand tips can be included in the bill in Paris, but is it common to leave additional gratuity in the fine dining establishments? I understand the waiter would appreciate it, but I'd like to learn what is customary/normal.

I have always had such a terrific experience at Le Cinq that I gladly leave an extra tip. The staff treat you like long-lost friends, and act like they are genuinely glad you came to their restaurant. It's a beautiful place, and the food is superb. I hope you enjoy it as much as my friends and I always have.

Hi in this type of restaurants the waiters are brilliant calibers they serve with utmost care and attention and make time to explain. Usually a 10% is good knowing the bill is also higher than usual

We left a tip. I think there was a service fee included in our bill, but we had such great service that we left a tip as well.

I am pretty sure that "Service" is added to the bill at Le Cinq. This substitutes for a tip. You can usually identify it because it will reflect a percentage, which is likely 10-12%. 10% is customary in France so this is ample (especially given what you are going to pay for this meal). It will be extraordinary. Enjoy!
