I am holding my wedding reception at the Liberty House and was wondering if anybody can share their experience with them regarding the gratuity for each personnel.
They charge 22% “administrative fee” and $250 maitre D fee, which are all taxable. I know a lot of the venues charge the administrative fee as the gratuity but Liberty House specifically states that it is not a gratuity for their staff. Does this mean I would have to tip the staff on top of the 22% admin fee? It just seems ridiculous.
Did anybody have similar situations with their venues or has worked with the Liberty House and can share/provide any advices?
Also, if I must tip in addition to the admin fee, how much would be adequate? Please help!
