Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by DadOfNine Problems assembling - but nothing unsurmountable.
We like the unit very much, in spite of the fact that it was difficult to assemble because some holes didn't line up, or screws were too short. Also the cam locks brake very easily if you aren't extra careful tightening them. Both the ramp locks for the leaf are facing the wrong way - but the company made up for the inconvenience and they were VERY sympathetic and eager to help resolve the problem. Basically - if you are a capable DIYer you can put it together nicely. If not, you may find this next to impossible to assemble completely.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PJ66 The island when assembled is beautiful and looks much more expensive than what it actually costs.
The look of the island is great and the storage is ample, although the holes for the shelf holders were not drilled on one side, so I only have 2 shelves. One of the drawers doesn't glide smoothly and is difficult to close. There was a sizeable nick right in the front of the top. We considered sending it back, but it was so heavy and difficult to unpack that I repaired it myself. It was very well packed, so the nick must have missed the inspectors. The only other problem is that the drop leaf brackets are a little too tall and won't open completely when the leaf is raised, but they open enough for it to operate. The design and finish are absolutely gorgeous and the size is perfect for my smaller kitchen. I wish they had taken a little more care with the details, but overall I am quite pleased.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 1HappyCamper This is a beautiful piece of furniture.
This is a beautiful product with great utility. It is gorgeous in my kitchen. I was delighted with it overall. It gives additional storage with the drawers and shelves. More seating places for family gatherings and additional space to use while you prepare meals. The only problem I encountered was 2 screws that were misfits. Fournately, I had 2 on hand that fit while I was assembling it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by td7338 Beautiful and functional
The top arrived damaged from the finish not being dry when it was packed. But the manufacturer promptly replaced it after we submitted pics. It's heavy and beautiful. Although it isn't top quality furniture, it's WELL worth the price. I would say it's better than lower end furniture and I'm pleasantly surprised for a Home Depot product.
