This set came very well packaged, I was able to assemble it with ease, it's a beautiful Bistro set,\nlarger than the regular Bistro's, which is very nice especially for the price, I would buy it again\nlouloubell7 P.S. This is a Christmas gift for my grandson.
As advertised, major problem was assembly of one of the chairs - the welded nut on the back was crooked, finally got bolt to line up, but it was a definite hassle. The paint on the underside of the glass top of the table was scratched in several places, will need to find something to touch up those areas. Otherwise, chairs are comfortable (cushions are worthless) and the table is a good height.
I ordered this set when it went on sale, which made it an excellent buy. I gave it high ratings because it's very well made, and both the table and chairs are each heavy enough they won't blow around or off a deck & into the pool. Both of the chairs had one of those pre-drilled holes that wouldn't line up correctly for the second screws, though I went ahead & screwed them in \"angled crooked\" as far as I could before I stripped out the little hex hole in screw tops. Since there is another screw that also holds this support into the bracket I think they'll be OK and I could always find a spare screw around the house if for some reason these become a problem later. I've put together MANY of these same type sets with pre-drilled holes and I've found they ALL have at least one hole that won't line up, which is frustrating but not a deal breaker, it's just in the pre-drilled manufacturing process. The table is a nice size and just like the picture, it sits up high enough that you don't have to bend down to set a drink on it. The table top is \"slatted\" but the width between them doesn't cause a glass to be tipsy at all, plus the table itself is heavy enough that it won't scoot around or tip over like a light weight plastic or aluminum one would! I love the bright blue color for a little splash of color in one corner of my patio area. It looks just like the picture, plus the cushions are reversible, solid turquoise blue on one side and the blue\/white\/lime stripe on the other. These are universal one-piece chair cushions and since the entire set is sturdy enough that it should last for years, I won't even mind simply replacing the chair cushions every year if need be. They can be found on sale fairly cheap, plus changing cushions is a great way to add a splash of color or change a color scheme. I like to switch colors around anyway, so I'll probably look for another set during end of year clearance sales! The cushions are not the really thick ones but are adequate for this type of chair, which is more upright than ones that adjust to lounge back or rock, in which case you need thicker cushions for pressure points. It's a nice average size conversation area set. Even though I scotchguard them, I've found ALL cushions, no matter how expensive don't hold up well if left in full hot sun & exposed to the elements. I also got an inexpensive umbrella & portable base to place by this set and it looks great, even though there aren't many days calm enough to leave an umbrella up in my part of the country! I'm a small person so the chairs are fine for me or an average size person but I wouldn't recommend this, or any other average size set for large rear ends or fat people--the comfort level would not be good! Overall, I'm very pleased with this sale priced set, I'd recommend it per my previous statements and I'm already looking forward to finding some extra clearance sale priced cushions, just for switch-out fun!!
I bought this bistro set for $78 at my local Wal-Mart and far exceeded my expectations! Fortunately, I didn't have the issues with the table's legs like everyone else did. This was a birthday gift for my mom so I had to put it together within a week, it actually only took me about two hours (including a break) to put the set together. I also found the pillows on clearance at Wal-Mart for $7 each! I'm sure my mom will love her birthday gift, this is a wonderful buy!
