GLASSHALFULL HAS ELIMINATED THE TIP OBLIGATION
Welcome back to Glasshalfull. We are so excited to be able to serve you in person. Everyone on the Glasshalfull team is vital, and no individual should be singled out for reward, so when we reopened we eliminated the “tip obligation” that makes the guest responsible for paying the server’s wage.
You will notice that our menu prices have increased. In order to eliminate the tip obligation, we raised prices by the average percentage tip previously paid at Glasshalfull. This makes it possible to provide fair and equitable pay for our employees and an excellent experience for you at approximately the same price you used to pay.
Glasshalfull has been involved with Orange County Living Wage since 2016 when we were certified as a Living Wage Employer. Our lowest starting hourly wage at Glasshalfull is $16 an hour, topping out at $30. We care about all of our employees, and we pay our service employees a real living wage.
If you feel your service team goes above and beyond, may we suggest an optional gratuity of 3%, 4%, 5%, or a custom amount in lieu of the current obligatory 18%, 20%, or 22%
