Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BarbdWire Solid, sturdy unit.
The unit was at our door 3 days after ordering it. Directions: easy to follow. No power tools needed. We used a wrachet-type screwdriver. All pieces are labeled. We grouped pieces (ie: small bench, long bench and corner bench) to simplify the process. Our only trouble (which was minor) was the thin rectangle piece (for the bottom of the storage compartment under each bench) kept slipping out as we assembled benches, so we glued it. Once that piece was secured, the rest was easy.
The color is like honey. The unit is sturdy, solid wood. Nothing "doll house" about it, as a customer noted in a previous review. The L-shape bench seats 5 adults, even a 6'4" man. We bought it for a 42" circumference round table we had and it's great. Our bay window area is 65" and this unit fits. We recommend this dining nook corner bench.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by BrianSnat Looks nice, but junk
I bought this because it fit perfectly in a corner of my dining room Easy to assemble, but it is basically garbage. The table top warped after a few months and came loose. Using slightly wider screws to secure it caused the wood to crack. The shelf in the corner is particularly fragile. I've repaired it several times after it collapsed under the weight of a small lamp. The last with metal brackets, but driving the screws in simply cracked the wood. The idea of the bench storage is nice, however if you put anything that weighs even a little in the storage area, the bottom falls out. I had to reinforce it with glue and additional cross beams and it still failed to hold a few extra dinner plates.
It look great for about 6 months, then after that you need to keep patching it together with larger screws, wood filler, glue and duct tape. It is seriously a piece of junk.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lolo Exactly what I wanted.
It was pretty easy to assemble. You definitely need two people. I did it by myself but should've asked for help. All in all, was a great buy and will get a lot of use out of it. The storage in the seat is like a drawer, which is always welcome in a kitchen.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CS102 This is a great item for small spaces when extra seating is needed, the corner ledge is a nice touch.
When assembling this item 2 pieces cracked where the screw holes were drilled. I called and the replacement pieces were sent out immediately. We had no further trouble putting it together.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Batman Good value but all items in picture are not included
The side bench and table will have to be ordered from another company. HD does not carry the other two items that you see in the picture. I actually acquired all three pieces from three different companies. All three parts were manufactured by the same company, but different sites sell them for different prices.

I was very disappointed to learn a Bench was the only thing delivered when the whole set was expected....Very deceiving ads and wording. I will be returning it promptly and getting my daughter something else for her Christmas gift.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chris I did it all for the nook e
Very nice finish and quality. My only complaint is it came 3 days after expected delivery date. One board was warped pretty bad but that can be expected with real wood. Also the drawer linning under the seat broke after my daughter tried to play hide and seak in it, that's our fault but it was practically cardboard not even particle board. The outside benches assembled easily with precise instructions but the inside at the corner lacked good instruction and for some reason all the guide holes that make messing up nearly impossible were not on the inside corner so you have to fly by the seat of your pants for that part. I recommend just taking your time and try to moch it up before you secure it all to minimize gaps
