Some people commented that this table is more cherry in color than brown. Considering the price of the items in this collection, this buyer was pleasantly surprised at their solid construction, although you may not be too happy about this item needing assembly. The only other disappointment is that the expected dark brown color can come off as more cherry in color. Overall, however, you will very satisfied.

Another customer said that this table and its stools were a great buy for their kitchen. They really liked what they ordered and even though they needed an immediate replacement of parts. The customer service department handled it very well, however, and they did an excellent job of getting her what she needed in record time. She had a very pleasant customer experience and recommends this table to others to use Wayfair for everything they need at home.

You will love these chairs. They are the perfect height for counter chairs. Sometimes the legs are labeled backwards with left marked right and right market left, but once you figure it out, there will be no issue. One person was nervous about putting them around the table but they matched perfectly. They are very comfortable and will pass your ‘sit’ test – no creaking of the wood that you sometimes get with chairs you have to put together on your own, and no undesirable bending, bowing, scarring, or scratching of your floor.


One customer received a table in which the front stretch bar was split in half. They felt that the product is not strong at all. She was very disappointed. She submitted the picture to customer service but had not heard back from anyone for a long time.

A different buyer faced an issue with the wrong stools coming with the first delivery. The delivery date then kept getting pushed back even though they were supposed to express ship the right ones. The, when they finally arrived, the color was wrong and they were missing hardware. This turned out to be the most frustrating order this customer had ever placed.

This sentiment was similar to the experience of a customer who purchased this table in December when she found out I was going to be going through a separation. Her ex did not move out until midsummer so she did not put her table together until the end of August. The cabinet underneath does not line up properly and it looks generic so she had to put it towards the back. Now it is only October and the finish is coming off of the table top, leaving her disappointed and frustrated. She had a cheap table from American Freight that was better in quality than this one. It seems that the finish gets worse by the week so she feels like it will be completely useless within a year.
