In my case, it depends on the "overdone-ness" of the steak. If it's medium when I ordered rare, but still tastes pretty good, I will eat it until I can catch the server. I will then point it out to him and ask him to inform the kitchen. But I will not send it back (since I've already eaten a good portion of it).

If it's seriously overdone (or in any other way "ruined") I will send it back.

The amount of my tip is entirely dependent on the quality of service I receive. I will not short the server because of a mistake the cook made. In fact, if the server has to replace my meal, they are working twice as hard, and shorting their tip would be worse than insulting. However, their tip WILL reflect how well they handled my complaint. If they get huffy or blow me off, that's bad service and I will tip less. If they're sincerely apologetic and make suggestions of how to make it right, I will tip extra (even if I choose not to take their suggestions).

Oh, and if I can't get the server's attention before I finish my steak, that's also bad service and is reflected in my tip.
