I took a leap of faith on this item. It had not yet been reviewed, the produict description said it was 95" long with no leaf and the Q&A was not helpful on clearing up whether there is a leaf or not. For the record, there are actually two leaves, one was already installed making the length 80", the second leaf was separate and adds another 15" making the total 95". I was looking for a long table so this fit the bill perfectly. The construction is heavy and solid, and both the table and chairs were very easy to assemble. It looks fantastic and probably the best value for the dollar of any furniture I have ever owned.

We purchased this set along with two extra chairs for the formal dining room in our new home. After doing considering research online along with visiting our local chain furniture stores we took a leap of faith and purchased this set. Our gamble paid off! We couldn't be more pleased with the style, quality and construction of this item. The price and quality are definitely not related It has far surpassed our expectations and we would argue it easily compares to set sold at local furniture stores for 3x as much.
I purchased this table after many months of looking at tables at showrooms. This table is beautiful with a very handsome inlay. It is also made of a nice hard wood. I have used the table through the holidays and noticed the chairs have already started to show wear! It is only 3 1/2 months old. I had expected this table and chairs to last for years to come. Just to note, adults no children or pets were sitting on them ...
I ordered the dining set with 4 extra side chairs. The extra chairs arrived within a week, the rest of the set in another couple of days. Very well packed with no damage at all. This is a solid, heavy set that blends well into my traditional home, but would do just as well in a more contemporary setting. It went together easily with the exception of one of the arm chairs. The pre-drilled holes did not match and I had to drill a larger hole to accommodate the screw. It did not affect the look of the chair. All in all I was very satisfied with the purchase, especially since it was sight unseen. I would have paid a lot more for this set (with 10 chairs) anywhere else.
I love my love new table. It's stylish and can be dressed up or down. I have looked for a couple of months for a table abd settled on this one. I found out that several different stores have their own version of this table. I can't see a difference besides the name and price. I am in no way disappointed in my choice. It is very sturdy and heavy. It has a nice heavy quality to it. A great addition to my dining room.
It really is a beautiful piece of furniture, but don't buy unless you are tiny or have copious amounts of wood-glue available. My chair-leg split along the wood-grain (the leg curves - the grain doesn't) and Overstock could do nothing about it. It looks nice, but it's not very sturdy. I'll do what I can to fix it, but, as always, buyer beware. Despite its structural issues, this really is a nice-looking set of furniture. Just don't buy it if you're large (I'm 6'6", 240lbs) or in any way hard on furniture.
This set required assembling and I was amazed at how easy it was. The table and chairs are very sturdy . The finish on the table is absolutely beautiful. I am very happy with the set and would recommend it to a friend. I ordered two additional matching chairs and with the leaf extensions 8 adults can be comfortably seated.
A beautiful dinning set, feels heavy and sturdy. Style is traditional and elegant. One armchair and one side chair came scratched and cracked. Customer service quickly sent replacements. Paint on the chairs are uneven, but probably not noticeable unless you are looking real close. However, the biggest problem is the table leaf. When we put the leaf in, one side was not attaching to the table properly, showing a visible gap. We tried sanding down the wooden slide (which was not finished smoothly as on the other side of the leaf), the gap narrowed a little bit but still noticeable. By then I did not want to go through the hassle of returning the big table, so my husband put a black tape under the table so at least light will not show through the gap. The table top scratched quite easily too. At this price, you can get a similar set, fully assembled, at big box retailer like Macy, saves you a few hours. So in all, nice set, but not satisfactory.
The table looks exactly like the picture. I am thrilled with the product and the price. There are some minor imperfections in the consistency of the color on the table top but nothing that bothers me. Reasonably easy to put together as well. I did it myself. I saw some reviews about the chair legs not all being flush to the floor. I found this as well with 3 out of 6. However, it is a slight offset and the chairs do not move or wobble when someone is sitting in them. I don't know if it is user error or not. It did not matter to me because there is a carpet under the set so there is no wobble even when there is no weight in the chair. All in all, it is a great buy.
