I recently purchased the Black Iron 3-piece Patio Bistro Set for my deck, which is small. Other reviewers listed concerns with putting it together and problems with the legs being uneven. I had no problems with either, and put it together without assistance. The chairs are very comfortable, even without cushions. The set is attractive and looks great on the deck. Time will tell about the durability of the set.
I was a little worried at first about purchasing this set sight unseen, but the other reviews made me take the chance. I'm so pleased with the quality and construction - they're definitely not going to blow away in a high wind. The style looks so good with my new house and I've gotten lots of compliments. A great place to sit in the sun for awhile with a cool drink. Absolutely would recommend.
This Bistro Set was exactly what I was looking for. It is perfect on my small porch. It took only minutes to assemble. It is beautifully crafted, heavy weight, and looks like it will last a lifetime. And, delivery time was even better than I expected.
we've had it for a couple weeks. easy enough to put together, managed to do it in about 30 minutes. however, we can already see some rust on the chairs (after 2 weeks outside). wasn't very expensive so i guess you get what you pay for... for the price it's fine
I had looked and looked for just the right set for my small porch at my beach home. I loved that this set has rectangular seats instead of the small dinner plate size seats most sets had. I wanted black wroght iron to contract to the white porch and this seemed just perfect. After seeing a few reviews complaining that the assembly was problematic I hesitated a second. But since most of the reviews seemed fine I went ahead. It took my husband and myself about 20 minutes to assemble. Some of the holes needed just a bit of "encoragement" to fit, but I would not really say it was a problem. Once it was together, I was just delighted with just how comfortable the nice wide seat was, to accomodate my "nice wide seat" :). The house in in Florida and is just perfect for our morning breakfast in the sunshine, or for a nice happy hour with wine and cheese. If the finish holds out, and continues to look and feel as nice as it does now, I will be absolutely thrilled with adorable and comfortable set. Here is a picture of our first breakfast at our little sunny bistro.

When I picked up the 2 boxes, I knew it was heavy! So I removed the pieces and it was very easy to assemble! But I will say, that I did read the reviews, and when one reviewer said to not bolt down till everything was in place was correct! I did the table first and the center piece that was to stabilize the table seemed that the predrilled holes didn't fit, but remembering what I read, I loosened the screws and I set the stabilizer between the four legs and it worked!!! The chairs were a breeze to assemble! I am pleased with this black bistro set!
Let me just start by saying that I love this bistro set! It works perfectly on my screened-in porch as a cozy place to dine alfresco. I have other black wrought iron furniture on the porch that I've had for years and the bistro set blended beautifully with the existing pieces. I did buy new cushions for both the existing pieces that I had and the new bistro set and it ties everything together very, very well.
The set is very, very sturdy! This isn't a set that's going to bend, break or warp anytime soon! This is a well put together set and a very good size as well! The chairs are wide and will hold anyone you put in them! They are very spacious, as is the table. Check out the dimensions of this set in the online description and compare it with other bistros available...you will find that the dimensions of both the chairs and table are way more generous than most! This was important for me as I specifically wanted the table to fit 2 dinner plates, two salad bowls, appropriate silverware for two, two drinks with room to spare for appropriate condiments and possibly a bud vase for a few flowers. I wanted comfort, as my husband and I are 56 years old at this point. We got all we wanted with this set!
Some folks have mentioned a problem with rust on this set. I really can't address that issue as I haven't owned the set long enough to have that issue pop up. My set is on a screened-in porch, so it won't be out in the direct sunlilght or rain, so I'm hoping that won't be a problem for me. Time will tell on that issue, but even if I have to hit it with a bit of Rustoleum outdoor spray paint, I'll still be happy with this set due to all the positives already stated above. I would highly recommend this set to anyone who is considering it. You won't be sorry!

I was somewhat disappointed when I opened the box and found the finish to be scratched and weathered looking. Too much of a pain to put it back in the box and return so I will have to either add fresh coat of spray enamel or cover the seat and back with cushions.

Hi huck35, we were able to verify the chairs are not stackable. We apologize for the inconvenience. overstockcustomercare1 on Jun 3, 2014
Could you tell me if the bottoms of the chairs and table are metal, or if they have plastic inserts? I'd like to keep this table indoors on a carpeted area but I'd rather have plastic bottoms so that the carpets won't get stained if there is any rust.elev0083 on Jan 22, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
This is a heavy cast iron set. It was a gift to my son so not sure about the bottoms. After 5 years this set is still solid and much enjoyed. They live in New Orleans and this is the perfect set for a Courtyardmississippihome on Jan 16, 2014
