Using Giftcards At Restaurants?

Ive always wondered when using a giftcard at restaurants, if you just put the card down as cash and if needed add cash accordingly

or do you inform your waiter and he brings back a new bill with the discounted amount? and you pay on top of that?

What do you guys usually do? Just wondering if there is a proper way, thanks!

Uh, I would put the giftcard plus some extra cash together.So you don't really want the waitress going back and forward instead of making one trip and giving you back the change.

I would let the waiter process the gift card first, just in case there is something wrong with it.

I usually have the waiter/waitress process the gift card. Make sure there's no issues like InvisibleSoul said.
