Rated 4 out of 5Â by Susan Attractive Bistro Set
If only there was something to attach the glass top to the base, then I would have given this set a 5-star rating. Even though there is some good weight to the glass top, my fear is that a strong wind will pick the glass top off the table. We've had tiles blown off another patio table before.
One chair arrived assembled and the other required minimal assembly. It took a little tugging to get the holes aligned to ensure the bolts went in straight. The table needed assembly too, but went together with less effort. A better tool for screwing in the bolts came with the table hardware packaging. If I opened that first, the chair assembly might have been easier.
The set is really attractive and comfortable enough. I was worried that the metal back might be hard on my back, but it's fine. This set would be fine for indoor use too.

This set came very well packed with the chairs stacked (one without the bottom attached) and the glass top well padded. One of the chairs was fully assembled and when I added the cushion and lumbar pillow, proved to be very comfie. I struggled with assembling the 2nd chair on the deck on my knees before wising up and bringing it into the house and working on the dining table--MUCH easier. It would have been nice to have an extra pair of hands to hold the seat while getting the first screw in, but I eventually succeeded.
I used my own socket wrench on the chair, rather than the tool which came with the bolts. The table actually comes with one. The table was very easy to assemble, but here's a tip -- just finger tighten the bolts, then turn the table right side up and level it before tightening all the bolts. The smoked glass top sits on rubber bumpers and is heavy enough to keep its place. If someone knocks the table over, the glass is probably going to break regardless of whether it's fastened to the table.
A bonus I wasn't aware of is that the seat cushion covers are removable. I probably wouldn't remove the covers, except possibly to recover the cushions, it's nice to have that option.
These pieces are part of a larger collection which includes a 2-pack of ottomans which I'll definitely order. I'm looking forward to spending some time on the deck in comfort!

The Hampton Bay Clairborne 3-Piece Patio Bistro Set with Moss Cushions, boosts a 5 year warranty on the metal frames and 2 years on the cushions. The set came in 1 box around 55 pounds, the set required assembly which took about 20 minutes, almost as long as it took to unpack the box, every piece was plastic wrapped for protection (not one scratch). The directions recommend applying a coat of car wax on all the metal parts before being exposed to the outside.
The Bistro set looks great, and is comfortable, plus it doesn't take up lots of space.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Sheldon Good quality set
Not the most sturdy set, but is well made and does the job. It is comfortable for a small unit.
