Rated 3 out of 5Â by chris Great Set, Disappointing Service
The set was great looking and the quality was good as well. Sturdy table and chairs once everything was assembled had trouble with damaged chairs as you can see, but I got a fixer kit and you can barely see where I had to glue it.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Packman Assembly Instructions
This dining set is not bad, but the assembly can be a challenge until figured out.
But most of this COULD be cured by better instructions. I am an engineer with a lot of good tools so I got mine together but prior buyers have blasted the assembly process. Most of this could be corrected in the assembly sheet.
The instructions casually, and correctly, say the arms are to be attached to the seat first, then to the back. I found that they should state that the ARMS ABSOLUTELY MUST be attached to the seat FIRST since it is about impossible to do so after the single bolt is attached to the back (unless you drill two holes larger.)
Now for the swivel rocker chair. The written instructions for the metal plates are wrong and don't match the picture. The picture is correct.
And you may need to double the foam tape in a few places to keep a few table tiles from rocking.
If you survive all this, the set is OK.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Jeff Nice looking but poorly made side chairs ruin it.
I would rate the table and swivel chairs "good". The quality of materials is good and they assemble reasonable well. Sadly, while the side chair material is good, the bracket on the legs that are supposed to match with pre-drilled and tapped holes in the seat do not match. Every single chair required drilling and tapping at least one hole and even then the legs didn't line up to my complete satisfaction.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by NotARookie Suffers from Very Poor Manufacturing Quality Control
Should be relatively simple to assemble, however the quality of manufacturing is beyond poor when it comes to assembly fit. It's as if a grade-schooler was given a welder, a drill, and a tap set.
The seat frames are cast/welded aluminum, while the seat is extruded/welded aluminum. The fit between the individual parts is terrible. Screw holes don't line up with the corresponding part. Brackets aren't welded square to the mating surface of the corresponding part. Halfway tapped screw holes. Side by side screw holes that aren't square with each other. Soft metal screws that round out easily. The list is goes on.
Highly recommend unpacking all parts and finding the best of the bunch, then assemble them together. Call HD Customer Service for help with the rest.
Prior to assembly, a metric thread tap/die set to chase the threads in the screw holes on the seat back and arm/leg parts would be a good investment. Attach the legs to the seat base first, then flex the whole thing to get the arm to attach to the seat back. Don't tighten any screws until you're sure that the piece is going to go together completely.
Looks good, though.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Mel99 Glad I got it on sale
The ordering and delivery went well. However, when we tried to put it together one of the chair seats or arm rests was not built correctly because it was impossible to bolt the whole thing together. I called Home Depot the next day and they were great about offering to replace the chair, however a couple of days later I got an email that they didn't know which piece I needed (the whole stationary chair). After I confirmed it twice, I received an email that it was being shipped, and then received another email telling me it was on back order until September (I bought it in July). The rest of the set looks great, although I thought it would be a tad sturdier.
