Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jdonalds Arrived in good condition. Home Depot solved our dilemma.
I read both here on The Home Depot page and amazon site that customers who purchased this patio set had numerous issues with broken welds, bent parts, scratches, and missing parts. Worse yet some people had not received a satisfactory solution after three months or more. We had a dilemma on our hands. We liked this set but didn't want problems.
We searched for two months in many stores and web sites for a table and chair set that met our desires. Being it was already late into the summer the available inventory had been picked over in many stores so there was a reduced set of patio sets available. We learned that most of these sets come from China and once shipped there is little a store can do to correct problems.
The Home Depot had a solution. Order the set and have it shipped to the store. Then we could unpackage it, examine it, and accept it only if it was in perfect condition. From user reviews we knew we had not better than a 50/50 chance the set would be good but at least we wouldn't be stuck with a less than perfect set. So we ordered.
Fortunately the patio set was perfect upon examination. It took me about 2 hours to put it all together (with two people that could be reduced to an hour) and the set looks great. The difficulty was getting the two parts of the standard (non swivel) chairs to align so I could get the screws in. It required a bit of pushing and would have been easier with more hands involved. All of the tools require were included.
The only complaints I have are there are some rubber covers supplied for the nuts but some of them pop off or won't fit in the first place. Otherwise we are happy with our purchase.

I spent a lot of time researching the options for patio furniture and decided on the Monaco set as an intermediate priced set.
My view is that the set is at best-- barely adequate. One of the good things about having to assemble the set is that you get to see how it is made. I had hoped that in this price range that I would get at least above average quality as to fit and finish. For one of the chairs, I had to use woodworking clamps in order to align all of the holes to insert the screws.
Also, I would not even consider trying to assemble the set with the tools supplied. Unless you have your own tools to use, you are going to be frustrated during the assembly process.

Delivery and packaging of the Hanover MONACO 7 piece outdoor dining set was prompt and exceeded our expectations. All items shipped were well protected and esy to remove. The chairs are smooth with no sagging and the ceramic table top is easy to clean. The assembly instructions were written in solid U.S. English with excellent illustrations. All the necessary parts were included and the bolts could be easily inserted through pre-drilled holes to hold the parts together.

Very please with the set, the seats are comfortable. The table is heavy so the wind will not pick it up, unless one is under hurricane conditions.

The only issue I had with this purchase was a missing piece at delivery. After several attempts, the piece has still not been provided.
