Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by zratednissan Sturdy Patio set
Patio set is comfortable even without any padding. I will tell you I had about 4-5 hours into removing plastic wrapping the ship it in. Also it is listed as ALUMINUM, which part of it is aluminum but the legs are STEEL. I guess for the price its an ok set but really purchased to avoid the rusty water that the steel is known for and unfortunately I still ended up with that even purchasing something that is listed as fully aluminum.

The table with the chairs are exactly as it appears online - excellent addition to our patio. We were looking for a small set as we only have a condo-sized patio. The shipment was missing a few pieces that covers up the bottom of the chairs, other than that, it was relatively easy to assemble.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by wxray Stout and functional
My first impression of this set is that it looks stout, like something that will last a long time. My hope is that is true.
The legs of both pieces are sturdy box metal, nothing spindly. Each is connected with very nice looking welds. I put a magnet on the legs and frame to check, and it appears that the table frame and chair frames are aluminum, as advertised. The surprise is that the legs of the table have some steel in them. That's alright, it adds strength to avoid sideways buckling.
The decking of the table and chairs is simulated wood. This is not bad since wood takes a lot of wear on horizontal surfaces. From any distance, it looks great. The polywood appears to be of good quality. Only many years of use in rain and sun will reveal how well it will ultimately hold up. The color is a cross between brown and olive. Very neutral and should work well in any outdoor setting.
We'll be using this without an umbrella. No worries there, as a nice screw in plug is provided to fill the hole. The size of the set is perfect for any modestly sized patio.
Assembly was interesting. The chairs need nothing but wrapping removal. The legs and pole support frame must be screwed in. Tools are provided, but my tip to you is to get your socket set out and use that if you have it. It will just go faster.
Tip #2 on assembly is something I missed in the instructions. First, lightly assemble the legs and don't screw them down tight. Then assemble the pole and support frame. This allows some "play" to align the screws. Once everything is lightly assembled, then tighten everything. This will work well and avoid screw hole misalignment frustration.
My only very slight complaint was that the wrapping was time consuming to remove. They really wrapped this table well! This will help avoid shipping problems. The plastic wrap on the polywood is very clingy and takes some time and patience to remove. It does come off, just set aside some time and patience and all is well.
We are already comfortably enjoying this set in our early Southern spring. We look forward to many years of use.

The dining set arrived with 2 bent chairs, as in seriously deformed. The box was in great condition and the issues were clearly manufacturing related. They were replaced after the hassle of taking pictures and sending them in to CS. We are now at the 4 month mark and the legs are showing signs of rust. Needless to say, this set is advertised as aluminum, so we were surprised to learn the legs are steel. We have 2 chairs and a bench in the yard and 4 chairs and the table on the covered patio. Between the wind and the rain, there is no way to keep them dry. Very disappointed that they won't last. It was the look we were going for.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by SW77 nice set
This is a very clean, nice patio set. We really like the simple, crisp look. Water beads nicely off the surface and wipes dry in seconds. Haven't had it long enough to comment on rusting. However, one chair arrived damaged and two other chairs have small mars on them, nothing too noticeable or that can't be sanded out - but one chair arrived with two drill holes right in the middle of the chair slat. Customer Service for this company is taking quite a long time to get back to us. It's been over a week since I submitted the form for damaged item needing replacement and haven't heard back from them.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by joeinaz About One Hundred Dollars Over Priced
The patio table and chairs are a very basic, functional, somewhat attractive set. However, one of the chairs came out of the box with one of the back legs severely bent. I have not gone through the process of contacting the manufacturer yet, as the chairs are shipped as a complete assembled unit. Additionally, when I opened the box, there was a large, red cockroach that was running around inside the box. The box was taped shut, so my suspicion is that he came from China with the table. I shopped for a few months before deciding on this set and when comparing the value and durability of the set with others that I researched, I would say that the appropriate price range for this set should be about one hundred dollars less than what I paid.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rhostam Such a great value. This dining set holds its own in form and function.
This dining set was purchased to accompany some higher end Brown Jordan patio furniture in the same color family. Unfortunately, my space couldn't accommodate the rest of the set (even if I like to mix things up), so I opted to try out this set. It looks fantastic and is actually pretty comfortable. It is really light and both the synthetic wood and metal assemblies seems durable. I guess time will tell. So far so good.

When I started to put the table together they had the wrong instruction & hardware.. The instructions were for a coffee table. Had to go back to home depot and have 2 hours finally found the correct bolts thank goodness I didn't have to pay for them.
Now that I have it together the screws that attach to the top of the table are falling out
