When asking a sommelier for a wine recommendation with a meal, is it appropriate to tip the sommelier? If so, is it a separate tip from the server? Thanks

I suppose the answer really depends on how you feel. It is not the standard approach to tip the sommelier, but if you have been given exceptional advice with the right attitude, why not? This is particularly true if the wine you drank was very expensive. The worst that can happen is that you will be seen as an appreciative and generous customer!
