First, and very important to me, I was impressed with the secure packaging of the product. Nothing was damaged and every piece was snugly protected,unlike dinnerware I've formerly ordered elsewhere that arrived partially broken. The dinnerware is even more beautiful seeing it in person and does very well in the dishwasher, maintaining its sleek good looks and shine. Sets a lovely and sophistocated table - just what I've been looking for. I would confidently recommend to anyone. Thanks!
These were better than we thought! We weren't sure whether to order the black or the white design - but the black is just gorgeous! It makes any food you put onto the plate look like something in a magazine! The shapes are very sophisticated, the weight of each piece is good - not too light not too heavy. Came packaged perfectly. Very happy with our purchase!

I wanted new dishes to compliment the decor in our new home. My old dishes did NOT stack well in the dishwasher, which was a constant irritation for me. These dishes fit into the diswasher like a dream and look so beautiful on our table. I bought 2 sets of black and one set of white, as an accent, and to use for serving pieces, as needed. Love the colors, shape and texture of these dishes. The arrived in a very timely manner, with no chips or breaks. Great service, great product.

All dishes arrived safe and sound, great packaging/packing by overstock! Dishes are beautiful, I wasn't sure about black, but it looks great and will coordinate with any color serving dishes I choose. The only complaint I have is that the mugs are not 16 oz as stated, they are 12 oz filled to the top. I would have preferred a bigger size but they are still nice and maybe I do need to cut back on my caffeine anyway!
We ordered 12 place settings of this set. It has a an elegant design and we love the finish, however, the bowls are too shallow to hold any amount of soup or cereal. The edges of the bowl curve downward from the corners and are only 1-3/8" above the bottom of the bowl. The sides have such a gentle slope that keeping any liquid in the bowl carrying it poses the same problem a martini glass has. They're suitable for salads or ice cream but that's about it.
I searched for a long while before I chose these dishes. I was frustrated w/ the poor quality of most everyday dishes. But Overstock has never let me down, and this was NO exception. These dishes are consistently rated extremely well for both beauty and durability. They do not disappoint!! They are beautiful, and even the simplest of food looks lovely on them. And as soon as I got them, I literally dropped the larger salad bowl I bought in the sink, and it bounced around a few times but did not chip or break. I was AMAZED. I am so happy I bought these. They arrived perfectly packed, without a scratch. Love them!! Thanks, Overstock!!! ( :
I have never been happier with a dinnerware set than I am with this one. I purchased two sets in black. Each time I use them I remind myself to write a review (this is the first review I have ever written for anything). I want to share my satisfaction with those of you who are interested in finding an excellent dinnerware set. The design is sleek and sexy. I use them for everyday use but they can also be used for formal meals. Buy this dinnerware - you can thank me later.
Love my black dinnerware. it looks so pretty in my kitchen and the size of plates are a perfect size for large or medium amount of food. Dont dry dishes with brand new dry towels because it does leave particles behind. The pattern on the plates are like shiny scales and very smooth. I love them!

Love that the shape is unique and the all black pattern adds texture that you can still plate colorful food on. But the bowls are designed where they are really only good for salad. The black seems to show every little watermark and makes them difficult to clean.
I looked for months for a square dinnerware set that was smaller than 10.5". These are perfect. They fit side by side in the dishwasher, they fit nicely in the cabinet and they don't get hot in the microwave (except for the food transferring heat). Oddly enough even though these are much smaller than regular dinnerware, the smaller sized plates still get used more than anything else. You won't be eating a porterhouse steak on these plates but other than that they are absolutely the perfect size and I believe they assist with reducing portion size. I plan on buying more of just the small salad plates to account for their high usage by my kids.
Pros: Stricking in appearance, and bring compliments from guests; do not chip easily (only one chipped plate after several years of use); was able to purchase additional matching items such as pasta bowls and salad bowls. Cons: The grooved texture makes them harder to clean; I have found that solid black gets a little boring after awhile.
