Can't beat the price of this set - it looks good and is sturdy enough if you're not heavyset. It assembles with standard steel hardware, so it won't last long in an outdoor environment, but should be fine on a porch or sun room. The legs of the chairs and table all have leveling feet to accommodate uneven surfaces.
Assembly was easy and the instructions were well written.
Definitely pretty to look at. Quality ... not so much. Table leg holes were drilled poorly so the center piece would not align to let the bolts slip thru. Had to use my grinder for some local modification. Legs on the chairs would not adjust enough for the chair to sit without rocking. I'm 6'3. The chairs are so small I feel like I'm sitting in a 5 year olds play set.
It is a really good looking set. I like the color--it is more brown and bronze-y than I thought. I thought it would be black from the photo. However, one of the chairs has wobbly legs and we can't fix it. It took my boyfriend about an hour or 90 minutes to put it together in total. Pretty easy to put together but disappointing that the chair legs are not the same length. Or perhaps the chair seat is uneven and makes the legs effectively different lengths--we can't figure it out.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? more burnished bronze in real life
Please tell us about the quality of the product. it is very pretty however one of the chairs has wobbly legs--we can't figure out how to rearrange the legs so that they do not wobble

This is a very nice set for a patio. Sturdy. Will hold my brother and he is not small. Not that hard to put together, but it is easier if you have real tools rather than the little wrench that comes with it. It is comfortable, very attractive, and I just love it.

It took about 5 days from order date to receive the product. The construction was very easy (spent about 20 minutes putting it together), and all the parts fit correctly. Was a little disappointed at the size of the chairs, but they seem sturdy. When I put the set on the front porch the size was perfect.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color matched exactly
Please tell us about the quality of the product. The table and chairs were lighter in weight than I expected. However, they seem sturdy and the size is perfect for my needs.

I actually wanted a different set from the same maker, but accidentally put this one on my registry. I was seriously disappointed when I found I had made the mistake. However, I opened the box and put it together and it looks absolutely beautiful! It was so easy to put together too. I didn't even read the directions. It came with lock washers and such to ensure nothing gets loose. Also, the little feet at the end of the legs screw out so you can balance it if you are putting it on an uneven surface. The chairs are comfortable and the craftsmanship is wonderful quality for the price. I wish we could post a pic cause mine is much better than the professional. Anyways, this product is much better than I expected. I think I may buy one for my mother I love it so much.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? More copper than bronze

I had read most of the reviews prior to ordering, and realized this was not a heavy duty commercial type of outdoor set. That known, I ordered it for my small deck and it's perfect. It was not difficult to assemble, and all tools were included. I keep it close to the house and under the overhang during bad weather and when not in use (we have high winds and snow). It is heavy, but light enough to easily move out when the weather is nice, and the set is in use. I am very happy with the purchase.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? very close. More "coppery," than expected, which I like
Please tell us about the quality of the product. good

The Bistro Set is indeed solid and heavy; however, the chairs and table are very bright copper, with a wash of black, which, for me, looks cheap. It all looked very busy, while it looks charming in the photo. I found the chairs uncomfortable (I'm 5'6",) 143, both in the size of and the height of the seat. I really didn't pay too much attention to the table, as I had decided to send it back. After I found out how much I would get back, I decided to keep the set, even though a friend and I had spent half an hour carefully repacking and retaping the box. It would have cost me over too much to send it back, even with a partial refund and fair return shipping sticker. I am keeping it, and will spend a bit more money and buy some good black rustoleum paint and have an artist friend help me paint, redesign it, and make some cushions for it.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? far, far too bright; not as pictured on my computer
Please tell us about the quality of the product. disappointed in the quality weight o.k., but very uncomfortable, and style was cheap

Is it possible to purchase a replacement table top? We had a severe storm in our area, and a branch hit the table top, causing it to bend and become unusable. We loved this set so much that we purchased two of them. Thanks on Sep 19, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question

Why is this listed as an aluminium set when only the table top is aluminium. Just received the set and the legs are cast iron. You should tell the truth about your products!! on May 2, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
