“Excellent food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2014

By the time we got to Restaurant Table (took a little work to figure out it was in a hotel), we were quite tired from a long day spent at Carnavale and the Old Town.

While I was a little concerned reading about some of the reviews regarding service, I found our waiter to be quite attentive and helpful. The real reason we go to restaurants is for the food and Table did not disappoint. There was a tremendous selection of tapas-style dishes and since we were with another couple, the recommendation to order 3 plates each was how we proceeded.

Portion sizes were very good for the plates and certainly 2 plates each may have sufficed depending on the dish and how hungry you are but presentation and flavours were terrific. The haddock tempura, while very tasty, was not tempura in the truest sense with respect to batter but the accompanying sauce complimented it well. The lamb burger, mushroom pot pie, lasagna rolls, Mom's mac n' cheese and homestyle fries rounded out my wife's and my selections. All were cooked exquisitely.

We ended the meal with the fresh churros (a restaurant specialty) with salted caramel and chocolate sauces. The sauces were sublime and the churros hot and crunchy. The dessert served as a perfect end to a wonderful meal. This restaurant is not cheap and were it not for the tempura batter, I would likely give it 4.5 stars.

“Great food-disappointing service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2014

My husband and I dined here for the second time the other night and enjoyed the overall experience but expected better service especially at this price point.

The food is absolutely amazing!!! The tapas are unique combinations of all types of food and are served in small portions cooked to perfection. The sliders and green beans were my favorite while my husband enjoyed the mushroom casserole. Don't forget dessert- they are to die for.

The decor is crisp and modern with dim lighting to create a romantic atmosphere. The service was disappointing and our waiter was much more attentive and interested in the table that purchased an expensive bottle of wine next to us. He did not check on us during each course, did not check for drink refills and forgot to bring condiments even after a reminder. Twice during the meal we had to ask another waiter to find our waiter so that we could order and get the check. My husband and I were enjoying each others company and the ambiance so it wasn't too frustrating but not the sort of service we expected. If only the service was better this restaurant would be a solid five stars!!

“What a treat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

A couple of minutes outside the walls of the old city this place is a gem! Food is delicious. Wine selection too. It's tapas style and we sampled about 6 items. We ate the bar and I would recommend if you like people watching. It was great to spend $100+ for two with wine. Not really possible behind the walled city. They are closed Mondays.

“Very good food but poor service.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2013

I went to Table tonight with eight of my girlfriend all from different countries. The meal was very good and the service was average until we paid are bills. I tipped the normal 15% which is almost too high sometimes, but the waiter had the nerve to come back to our table and ask us all why we did not tip more. He claimed we had to tip on the full price, the tapas are half off Thursday night. Being the only one from Quebec I told him that you usually tip on the total price at the bottom of the bill. even their visa machines calculate on the total of the bill. He quickly ran off. I don't know if he was try to scam us but it was written nowhere that we had to tip on the full price. What a way to ruin an evening, so be aware of the service here. I won't be going back .
