Maybe a European Fool can comment. I don't remember that, but then I didn't focus on the charges. I just pulled out my card (with PIN, so I didn't have to sign those silly receipts).

Most US restaurants add a 20%+ gratuity for groups of 6 or larger. Though some are now discouraging tipping (e.g. 1poorkid's former sandwich shop).

Service in Europe was fine. It was as attentive as US service. Paying people a living wage didn't seem to result in degraded service.
