Based on the positively glowing reviews for this set and the fact I needed a relatively small patio set, I excitedly ordered this, anticipating to be as happy with the quality as the other reviewers. Upon arrival I was pleased that it looks great and no one would argue, aesthetically, it's probably the creme de la creme of folding sets. But immediately upon set-up I discovered the pulled and woven 'rattan' would not be ideal for my intended use and I genuinely worry that a high wind will knock this table over unless folded up each and every night. Very little heft to the set. (My 63 yr old teeny tiny mother can pick up the table, folded or unfolded and move it around like it's as light as a box of tissue.) And for drinks? Goodness, my glass wobbles so much that even with a coaster you can literally see the glass shake to and fro for several seconds as the weave is not taut enough. The table itself sits flush, it's just the woven nature of the table top is NOT ideal if you plan to use it for your evening happy hour. Another reviewer placed a glass top of this table and I'd highly recommend that if planning to use this daily, as I do. If you're hoping for something a bit more permanent feeling for your patio and you plan to eat/drink--meaning actually USE the darn thing--I'd skip this for something more substantial. The chairs are comfortable and low profile but definitely not styled for the overweight or tall folks amongst us. For me, this is a case of style over function and if you can compromise, it's lovely.
This product was better than imagined - the construction is more heavy-duty than it looks in the photo: good thing too as this is being placed in a high-traffic area at work in a public place. The finish is also very well done - v satisfied!
First of all you should know there is no assembly required. This bistro set is just as cute as the site's picture and very sturdy. It folds easily for storage and even makes a nice extra table for indoor functions. So far, it has stood up to mixed weather. Very pleased!
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Looked exactly the same when receiving.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Chairs are very sturdy, wicker does not unravel.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Arrived as described.
Great size, color, quality and price. It's sturdy, yet light enough for me to move around where I want it. I loved that it comes fully assembled and ready to use. All three pieces fold up effortlessly. I recommend this set with no reservations.
I like this set, don't get me wrong; but, there is a solid backing on the table. The top is a weave, so water gets trapped between the weave and the backing. The table has to come in every night to avoid water build up from morning condensation. Do NOT leave this table out in the rain.
I wanted a bistro style table for the patio off my kitchen. It is the perfect size for two place settings. Unlike some other reviewers who thought the table was too light, we've had it outside for about a month now and it's withstood several windy thunderstorms. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a small outside table.
