Description: Table 16 Restaurant has a seasonal approach to menu development. The concept & philosophy of globally influenced, New World Cuisine was derived from the extensive exposure gathered by chef/owner Graham Heaton during his travels & training. It is a style of food that incorporates tremendously flavorful spices, chilies, grains & sustainable seafood & at Table 16 is dedicated to sourcing and supporting the state's vast pool of edible & delicious products, from local game, dairy & produce-turning them into magic for the mouth and sustenance for the belly. The restaurant is avant-garde and strives to keep the experience different for each visit while remaining accessible & affordable. Table 16 Restaurant produces daily a style of food and experience that cannot be found elsewhere in the Triad including weekly specials including a $30 garden prix fixe special on Tuesdays, $30 Surf and Turf & Prime Rib specials for on Wednesdays & $35 four-course chef's tastings on Thursdays. There are features on adult beverages each week to complement each dinner special-from $8 top shelf martinis, to reverse no corkage fee night which offers guests $15 off any bottle over $60.In the quest to be the Triad's favorite spot to frequent, a brand new bar menu was launched in 2014 offering mouth-watering flavors in the comfort of the newly renovated bar. It's the perfect spot to enjoy a quick, informal & inexpensive bite to eat & your favorite drink before a show, night on the town or just before heading home for the evening.Want the full Table 16 experience?

"I am not a Greensboro born and bred chef. I have traveled extensively and chosen the concept here at Table 16 Restaurant from my time spent as a chef in the cities of Miami and New Orleans and from the style of food so abundantly found there. I have worked for two James Beard award-winning chefs, two others who have had the opportunity to put on dinners at the Beard House, and one who won the distinction of Iron Chef America. I have been employed in five different Mobile rated 4-diamond/4-star properties throughout the state of North Carolina and the South East.""I am a 38-years-old father of 3 children, and originally a native of the Outer Banks of North Carolina. I moved to Greensboro 8 years ago to finally hang my hat, to start my business and to raise my family. I have grown to call this city my home and its inhabitants my friends. In return it has shown me much love and support. It is a privilege for me to find myself here, as a teacher, employer, family man, artist and business owner. "

We heeded your call and came over to Greensboro last night for the four-course tasting. It was... mmm, mmm, good from the very first bite to the very last. We didn't want to leave! And you are so right - weekdays are where it's at. Thanks again to Amy, Daniel, Lucas, and the whole Table 16 family!

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Table 16 and would definitely return. Our server was knowledgeable about the menu and wine recommendations. He also let us know about upcoming events. The food was fantastic and well presented. The hummus platter was fantastic and beautifully served on a marble slab. My husband's steak was huge. My fish was cooked perfectly. Great... More

I had the opportunity to host a business dinner at Table 16 this week. We opted for the "chef's choice tasting" where we could have tasting sample courses until we were ready to call it "quits." It was quite fun and the food was delicious, not to mention surprising. For me, the least exciting course was the first, a spinach... More

We had late reservations at Table 16 and they were still very busy and the servers were hustling quickly about. My husband had the lamb chops with sweet corn muffin with a cranberry chili bordelaise and I had the mahi mahi with honeyed spaghetti squash and shaved Brussels sprouts. The lamb was a generous portion and perfectly cooked and I... More

Went to try Table 16 due to the high ratings and after checking out the website. The gumbo resembled no gumbo in our experience. It tasted, and looked, like small pieces of chicken and some rice dropped into bottled barbeque sauce. The skillet chicken was accompanied by tasty grits but the chicken was rather tough. The scallop entrée consisted of... More

I went to Table 16 because they were relatively up scale and could accommodate a large group. The wait staff was excellent and the atmosphere quite nice. The appetizers were great but entrees not what was expected. 4 had Sea Bass which was tasteless and the prime rib was more akin to a ribeye. OK but I'm not sure I... More

We are foodies and truly appreciate when we can get something at a restaurant that not only is delicious but different than anything we have had. Table 16 achieved this stupendously! We had a small cheese service along with cocktails to begin with. It was the perfect amount so we weren't stuffed when our entrees arrived.3 types of cheese, crackers,... More

My husband surprised me for my birthday with a dinner at Table 16. It was hands down one of the best meals we've both ever had. I had the duck over lobster raviloi. He had the prime rib.

A small restaurant (16 tables), but big, creative and exquisite food. Try the tasting menu, whatever it is. Great for lunch or dinner. Reservations a must. One of Greensboro's top three, and perhaps one of the state's top three. Excellent wine list.

This was our first visit to Greensboro and we booked into Table 16. We approached dinner with no expectations but were very pleasantly surprised. Table 16 is located on the edge of an old industrial area/art district. The décor in the cozy dining room is eclectic and funky. Our server, Kim, seemed to be new to Table 16 but was... More
