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.
