Tipping and gratuity when eating out

As an expat we all tend to tip for service. I have always tipped when eating out. Recently I became aware that the servers do not keep the tips that are given to them from generous people who tip them. Some of these top places listed to eat at keep the tips. To me this is not a way to treat staff, especially when good service should be a priority for any restaurant. So, next time you eat out don't blame the server for bad service. Blame the greedy owners who keep the waiters tips. I have become aware of many restaurants that do this and will not give gratuity anymore. To all restaurant owners: If you want to provide good service, treat the waiters with respect and give them their tips. They earned it.
