Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Joel Very nice table
The table is solid built. The expansion mechanism is difficult to operate, very sticky. I noticed that there is rust starting already on the alignment pegs between the 2 table halves. I have had the table for about a month and so far, overall, my wife and I like the table.
The delivery on the other hand, was not so good. It comes in 3 boxes and all 3 boxes were dented or had tears in the cardboard. Unfortunately, Home Depot needs to look into finding better carriers for their larger product deliveries. The bottom of the table was scratched up.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sandy Love this dining set!
I ordered the Tobago 7 piece dining set without slipcovers, and bought dragonfruit slipcovers separately (only because I wanted matching pillows for a seating set to coordinate the look, and the pillows I liked came in dragonfruit...I wasn't sure they would completely match with the standard color in this set).
The set arrived on time and I was glad to have the Basic Home Shipping option so that I did not have to take a day off of work to wait around for a freight company to deliver it. It was packed really well (in fact, unpacking it from all of it's protective layers was the most time-consuming part of putting it together).
It was easy to assemble - the non-motion chairs came in one piece and the motion chairs required just a bit of assembly. I bought two extra motion chairs for my set as well. The table is heavy but my husband and I were able to complete the few steps required to attach the legs, turn it over, and voila...we were done!
I was impressed with the weight and quality of the set and feel like it will last us for many years. The glass top is super easy to clean. There was one big chip in the paint near the edge of the glass on the tabletop, which I superglued back in place since the paint chip was actually there just not connected to the table. There is another small chip in the paint that is missing in another spot, and I am trying to figure out a solution for that.
Almost as good as the dining set itself was Home Depot's customer service. Two days after ordering this set plus the two extra motion chairs (which had just shipped that day), I noticed it had gone on sale for 40% off!!! I called Home Depot Customer Service and in the span of a 5 minute conversation, I explained the situation and was told that they would honor the sale price and credit me the difference from what I had paid. The credit appeared a few days later, as promised.
All in all, I would recommend this set to anyone. The motion chairs are awesome and even the non-motion chairs are so comfortable! We've had two parties with this set and everyone comments on how comfortable it is. If you're on the fence about whether or not to get this set, don't hesitate. Buy it. You won't regret it. And don't forget that you have the option of different colored fabric if you order the set without slipcovers (Model # 151-115-7D-V2-NF).

The table should never have been shipped from the factory. The top does not line up properly and has an area that was damaged at factory and poor job of trying to make it look OK. I hide it with a centerpiece. I did not return the table/set because it would be too much trouble!! The set that I was supposed to receive well before Memorial Day had a damaged table. The table damage obviously occurred during shipment. I thought I would be using the set for Memorial Day, but due to having to refuse the first delivery just made the 4th of July. Will never order anything like this on line again from Hope Depot.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DrSarah Well engineered, solidly constructed table and chairs
The table design is better than expected. The two end chairs do rock gently and are not overly heavy, as are many outdoor end chairs with round swivel bases. The other chairs are light weight but sturdy. The vinyl wrapping is similar to cane, rather than wicker, but in the same family of style. We put together the two end chairs using the box they arrived in for upending them and attaching the base to the legs. The cushions were obviously designed by an upholsterer - the two long tabs on the back hook have velcro tabs. Underneath the chairs is a metal rod. Either look for it or feel it with your fingers. Wrap the tab around that for a perfect fit. It makes for a smooth look with the chair - no fussy ties across the back. The table weight was heavier than we expected, so either have it delivered near the location you intend to set it up or have a furniture dolly plus two adults capable of lifting some weight. We assembled it using on the the chair boxes to rest it on, rather than upending it and having to lift it sideways and onto the legs. See photos for leg assembly. Legs are surprisingly well constructed with a long center rod attaching the legs to the table and extending through the legs. This table is meant to last. To open the table, give it a good tug and the middle leaf will come up. To close it tug it open again and it will activate a spring that will induce it to lower and then you can close the table. It is a great size for 6, using table mats. The leaf adds enough room for a spacious table for six or seating for eight.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Gtshopper OK for the price
The best thing is the chairs are comfortable. The expanding top is great. The real negative is that the table started dripping rusty water after the first rain.

This is a great patio set! Only thing is color of cushions are more of a burnt orange not burgandy and they are hard. The assembly was easy. The design of the table is genius! Loving eating outside

The set was delivered in less than a week and seems to be good quality. The table and chairs look great! The seats are very comfortable. However, the table does takes some pulling by 2 people to extend or unextend and takes time to get it to work right. The leaf arrived with a few scratches but nothing major. It probably happen during delivery. But overall it was packed very well. It actually took longer to unpack everything than it took to assemble the set. My family is very pleased with this set.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Wendyloohoo We LOVE this set!
I bought this set during a special buy of the day, so I got a GREAT price on it.
I'd read the other posts saying the wrenches included with the set were worthless, so I added some to the order and that made all the difference in the world. It was really pretty easy to put it together. I was able to do it by myself. I'm not the handiest person in the world, but I've put together some Ikea stuff in the past. The hardest part was flipping the table up after putting it together. It's HEAVY!
I gave a 4 for quality because one of the metal plates that hold the bouncing (not quite rocking) end chairs together was split. I called Hampton Bay and they've said they'll send a replacement.
Once put together, the set is really nice. I'm very pleased. The table is generously sized - can fit 7 comfortably, especially when it's extended. I didn't have any trouble with the expansion, there's a trick to it - making it click and pushing the locking mechanism - but it works fine. The chairs are wide and deep, accommodating lots of different body sizes and types. The cushions are nice and necessary - the chairs sit a little low without them.
All in, I'm very pleased and would absolutely recommend. I wanted a reasonably priced set that would be comfortable to linger in after dinner; not something that was hard or uncomfortable and you couldn't wait to get out of. That's exactly what I got - I love it.
