Should we tip the Maitre d'?

A very volatile question. In my opinion, yes, if he does his job, which is making sure you are completely satisfied with the food and service and is there for you if you have a question or complaint. On the other hand, if the only contact you have with him is on the next-to-last night when he comes around just to remind you who he is . . . .then definitely NO.
