New Restaurant CIRCADIA will not accept tips or service charge

In partnership with employees, Seattle’s newest entrée into refined dining creates an environment where guests do not have to tip for excellent service

CIRCADIA, a new, luxurious dining experience opening in Seattle on November 19, will not accept tips or offer a service charge to their guests. The restaurant provides guests with refined dining and personalized, seamless high-end hospitable service.

“We believe guests should not pay twice for great service,” said Jeanie Inglis, who owns CIRCADIA along with her husband Jake Kosseff.

CIRCADIA’s team consists of employees who have made giving excellent service their career, who truly enjoy the heart of hospitality, and who do not expect to be tipped simply for doing what they are passionate about.

“Each employee is integral to our service program, from the beverage director to chef to the dishwasher,” added Inglis. “Each person plays an important role in ensuring a seamless guest experience, and we believe it is absolutely the owners’ responsibility of keeping their employees happy. At the end of the day, happy employees deliver better guest experiences, and the guest is the entire reason why CIRCADIA exists.”

Inglis and Kosseff know happy employees take better care of guests, and have made employee well-being top priority at the restaurant.
