Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Laura Beautiful but can't get water stains off of black counter top
Looks fabulous. The extra shelf is great for serving. I did have to have my contractor mess with the shelf supports. The holes were too close to the top so it was too hard to more the supports. He shaved some height off them.
My big issue is water stains from glasses on the black granite top. We can't get them off. Can the company provide an answer? In addition to a variety of counter sprays, we tried a paste of baking soda and water, for 24 hours, and that didn't do a thing.
It does not come with wheels, but you don't want them because they would make the island too high. But by adding 4x4" furniture pads, the island can be moved around the kitchen space easily.

The wife loves the island very easy to put together took me about a half hour to Assemble it's. it's got a great look. The only thing I didn't like was the way it was shipped to me it came by UPS and the driver had a hard time with getting it out of the truck and onto the porch

Looks great and is sturdy. I did wish I had a little touch up paint because I had a little accident while putting together.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lefty Very distressed almost looks like it was scraped
I ordered this island, was delivered on time, & better than I ever expected. Although the one box with the granite top stated "do not open this box till the base is put together.! What they DON'T tell you is some of the pieces for the base were in that box. One piece to put the drawer together was missing,
called them & they said it will be shipped out.
You do need 2 people to put the top on the base, other than that not much of a problem.
Very happy with the purchase.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by extrasweater While I do love the look of the assembled piece, I am surprised that so many reviewers refer to the assembly as easy, and that is coming from someone who is handy. Things to look out for: it is shipped in two boxes, and the box with the granite top weighs over 110 pounds. The delivery person left the box upside down, insisting this was the best way to open it - not so because this box has wood crating inside and can only be opened from the top so I had to hire someone just to turn the box over safely. Then they say to use a hammer to push out the sides of the crate, but a hammer alone will NOT do as the sides are strongly glued, stapled, and screwed in place. You really need to remove the screws and use something to break the glue line before attempting this. It definitely takes two people to put this together due to the weight of the top and various awkward moves required. The parts were well labelled but one of the sheets from the English instructions had been thrown into the heavier box at the bottom! Some of the screw holes were not perfectly aligned so you should have a drill and bits available if required to make some adjustments.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pellish Very impressed
I cannot get over the quality of this piece. You would never know it wasn't custom built for my kitchen. It was a shock when the 2 huge boxes arrived weighing about 200 lbs total but it was extremely well packed with the granite top in its own box. No damage! The instructions were very detailed, every piece labeled and pictures easy to follow if there was any doubt along the way. My husband and I are morons when it comes to putting stuff together. It did take us about 3 hours but we started hitting the beer about 40 minutes in and still no major eff ups! We took the advice of other reviewers and assembled where we intended to place it. With the rubber feet (hidden after assembly) it glides right over our laminate wood floors but no way I would have taken a chance on our 90 year old original wood floors in the rest of the house. Even though it is easy to move once assembled, it won't move unless you want it too. I was nervous about the distressed look, but it is beautiful - geez my kitchen cabinets are "distressed" and it certainly wasn't intentional. Be careful when placing the top, I came close to smashing my finger since it is heavy! If you can use 2 men for that step, definitely recommended (or maybe lay off the beer!). The price was great for the quality - just shop around since the prices are all over the place depending on the site. We paid at least $250 less than other sites. Very happy!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mike Solid Purchase!
Very satisfied with the purchase. High quality for a reasonable price. The product is very heavy so would recommend assembling with at least 2-3 individuals.

We purchased this product a couple of weeks ago and the marble top was damaged during delivery and then the manufacturer sent us another marble top within a few days. The island is heavy and sturdy and great quality..the instructions are clear...they could be a bit better in a perfect world though..But overall, my Husband and I put this together and it is absolutely beautiful..Thank you Home Depot for the price match. The good thing about this product is the quality and it can not be moved by children but it can be moved by a strong man.
