Disappointed. When it arrived, one of the wooden supports under the table had come loose and the screw actually splintered the wood a bit. I fixed that. But, the table wasn't nearly as attractive in person as the photo looked. I think it looks cheap. I expected a black table to show dust, but this also shows fingerprints A LOT. I wouldn't purchase it if I had it to do over.

We were disappointed when our table arrived and one of the side supports was broken. The legs for the table had been strapped to the bottom of the table top and had come loose during shipping. The loose legs then banged the side of the table and broke the support. We did not wish to go through the hassle of returning the table, so we repaired it as best we could and kept it. The legs are wood and the rest of the table is fiberboard. It looks OK, but the quality is poor. We were not looking for fancy, so we will make it work. We wanted a black table, and it fit the bill.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Perfect match on the black color.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Only the legs are made of wood and the table top and supports are cheap fiberboard
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Accurate on the product look, but not the quality.
I bought this table as a simple stop-gap during a comprehensive home renovation, and to replace a folding card table for daily meal use. If I wasn't already planning to throw this table out or re-sell it on craigslist for a massive loss, I would send it back. Expectations were low, and they were barely met... The table is black, not "espresso" dark brown. No part of the table is solid wood, except the legs. The top and aprons are MDF. The finish is satin. Not glossy and not totally flat. There are runs to the finish on the underside and on the apron bottoms. Clearly it was sprayed on, and with little care. Inh short, I paid $$$ for a temporary table for family of four, and I'm OK with that. If I had plans for using it longer than 2-3 months I would definitely purchase a different table. I expect it won't hold up against my two young kids and daily use for very long.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Description says "Espresso". Packaging says "Black". It is black.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Only the legs are solid wood. The top and side aprons are all MDF. One of the aprons was split on the bottom edge.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Size was accurate. Everything else is largely incorrect.
I ordered this table to replace a smaller black table that I had also purchased from Overstock. The leather parsons chairs I have and also bought from overstock, fit perfectly around this table. For the price you cannot beat it! There is a flaw on the table top. There is a screw coming through the top of the table which is noticeable. I will just live with it. I do keep a tablecloth on the table so that does cover up the flaw. I would recommend this table for anyone looking for an inexpensive dining table.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color was exactly as described.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. There is a screw almost coming out through the top of the table. I was able to cover it with a table cloth however was disappointing.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Description is spot on.
This table was a great purchase. It's a good size for four people (you could maybe squeeze six, but you wouldn't have much arm room!). Both the types of chairs I bought fit perfectly under. It seems to be good quality and was easy to assemble. A word of warning: it comes in a 5 ft x 4 ft (ish) box, and it weighs about 80 pounds. You'll want some help getting it moved inside!

Some of the other reviews almost scared me off but I'm glad they didn't. The table arrived quickly and in excellent condition. I wasn't looking for much out of it...just a glorified utility table really and its going to fulfill those needs perfectly. Assembled in under 10 minutes and it's pretty sturdy too. For under *** I can't imagine getting anything better.
So its a little wobbly but thought it would be sturdy and within weeks its always off balance, the paint got scraped off everywhere and when I first received the box was damaged, as usual from overstock, and there was a huge crushed wood part on the corner, I mean it was like 2 inches missing from that corner and asked overstock for refund they never came to pick up. Its a piece of crap!
I bought this table for my scrap/craft room. I absolutely love it!! I was delivered within a few days and the packaging was perfect. There were no damaged parts and all parts were included. I put it together with the allen wrench provided. It was simple and quick to do. It looks fantastic in my craft room, is the perfect size, sturdy and a terrific value!! Definitely recommend it!! I ALWAYS look to Overstock before buying anything in the store!!!
My dining room table was shipped to me with no legs, no hardware, no instructions, and the bottom piece was broken off and sticking through the styrofoam. It's taken about 2 weeks and it's still in the process of getting shipped a new one. What company does this?!
This Havana Carson Large Wood Dining Table is a very simple style and was very easy to put together. It is very heavy, and the shipper just left it at my front door, when my dining room is on the 3rd floor of my house! After I had to men bring it up stairs, I opened the box and screwed the four legs on. The hardest part was setting it upright all by my self! It is perfect it you are looking for simple and chic.
So far, so good with this table. I didn't have any of the previous reviewer's issues with the table being damaged during shipping -- the table looks perfect set up with no issues. It is a black table, but I currently have chairs with expresso legs that look close enough in color to appear to match the table. If you are like me and are searching for a table that will seat 2 chairs on each of the longer sides of the table, this one has the room to do that in a size that isn't too big; This table would even fit 6 chairs in a pinch, but the seating space would be tight. It comes complete with plastic feet, so moving it will not scratch your wood floors. Overall this was everything I expected and I was able to put it together in about 10 minutes. It is sturdy and I expect it to last for the next few years or more. I just wish this affordable table was made in a counter-height version, since that is what I originally wanted but couldn't find cheaply. Overall, it's an excellent product!
Arrived with some damage in the form of discoloration on the top and a few small chips on the legs. Too much of a hassle to return, so I will keep the table; you get what you pay for. I don't know why they describe the table as Large since it is not; 4 people may be seated, however, I would say with barely enough space to eat.
