Rated 1 out of 5 by Love the chairs, but they didn't hold up! We purchased the bistro table and four chairs last June for our back garden. They looked wonderful and were the perfect place to lounge and dine. We then put the chairs and table in our basement over the winter. Unfortunately, when we brought them out this spring, the bolts in two of the chair legs snapped while we were setting them up, and a third chair gave out about a week later. It was a huge disappointment since we're now down to one chair with a whole summer stretching out ahead of us. Since they stored indoors all winter we can't figure out why in the world the bolts all broke. I adore the chairs, but am not sure we want to replace them with the same ones... June 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Delicate looking but a very strong and comfortable chair. We use the chairs for extra seating on front porch. They fold easily when not needed. Great looking chairs. Dainty looking but very comfortable & strong. Perfect for when we need extra chairs on our porch. Also easy to fold away. June 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love these Love my french inspired cafe chairs. I got the blue for our lanai and they look fabulous! Exactly what I wanted! May 26, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Nice, with some problems We received two black bistro chairs the other day. They are shiny and attractive, but came with some dents and scratches, and little black chips of paint were falling from the box when we were opening it. We were sorry to see that the chairs were missing several of the leg protectors on the bottom, which were broken off, so this problem others were having has not yet been resolved. To be fair, Ballard said they would send us more of these for both chairs after we called to let them know. Hopefully they will not be difficult to apply and will stay on. They also helped by discounting the price further, which we appreciated. The cushions we purchased for them fit perfectly and look great. Wish the cushions were not so expensive though as they were not particularly thick or anything to warrant the price, even on sale. But, maybe that's what everyone is charging for Sunbrella fabric these days. All in all, we like the look and feel of the chairs very much. I do agree with some others who would not have anyone over 200 pounds sitting on them though. March 27, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by handsome and sturdy bistro chairs These little chairs are perfect for my small garden. I have seen french ones that cost about $20 more each, but they are not any better made, and Ballard delivers so quickly, there was no question as to where to buy these! I got the table earlier, and it is great too. January 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect Exactly what I was looking for. Well packaged. Love them. July 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cafe Folding Chairs Excellent product. Heavily-enameled metal chairs of nice quality. Look thin but not flimsy at all. I got white but would like a pair in each color-LOL! My only problem, is they were a little difficult for me to open-close. I'm not that strong so maybe me or newness of product. Closes flat and good for storage. June 8, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Would recommend but beware of plastic on legs Pads on chair legs are cheap and were broken when pulled from shipping box. One chair stop on seat was broken but still functional. Finish is nice. June 5, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Well made and comfortable Well designed, comfortable, excellent paint job and good color selection. Cushions are a bit pricy. June 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Much nicer than expected We rec'd the chairs that were carefully packaged and in a short time frame. Very pleased with the product. May 18, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice Chairs I love my cafe folding chairs. They are good looking and comfortable, but not so good weather resistant. We put them out on 4th July, and have found spots rusted. September 26, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by High Quality We looked everywhere for bistro chairs that would match the ones in a painting we have in our Paris-themed kitchen. We saw these at a cafe and the owner recommended Ballard Designs. We are very pleased with the chairs. They are a quality product and will last for many years. August 27, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great chairs for our small deck We found these chairs to be exactly as marketed. We have a small deck and space is at a premium so these are also practical. Got 4 of them without the table to use with a larger table we already had. The problem with the protectors on the bottom of the leg (mentionned in a number of reviews) seems to have been fixed. Love them. August 8, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Charming outdoor chairs, but pieces break So far we love the cafe folding chairs-- the green color is really nice, the style is charming, and it's nice that they fold. I would just warn potential buyers that the plastic pieces on the bottom of the chairs break very easily-- several broke off of our chairs when we took them out of the packaging, so that was a disappointment. Otherwise, the chairs are nice. June 6, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Nice quality. Sturdy chair. Love the knobs on the bottom of the legs to prevent scratching on wooden floors. Great improvement! The white paint has a blue cast. Does not blend well with my white decor. May 22, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bistro chairs The chairs are great, comfortable, sturdy, they fold and stack in very little space, wonderful colors, and a good price. May 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by So great! I got back from Paris last month and decided I needed more France in my life. I ordered this table and chairs for my front porch. I love it. It seems very sturdy, nice finish, and I couldn't be happier. October 25, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great chairs These chairs seem well made and are surprisingly comfortable. August 22, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Foot pads There needs to be a better way of protecting the feet. The little pads break too easily and there are no replacement pads from Ballard. We had experience of some breaking off in shipment. April 20, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Classic French Style at an Excellent Price These bistro chairs are very sturdy and heavy. They are well-made and came very well packaged. Imported French bistro chairs in a similar style sell up to four times more than these snd are not better. The only small problem I have had is that one volt cover came off but I was able to put it back on easily. January 5, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Exactly What I Was Looking For I love these chairs! They definitely give me that French Bistro look that I was going for and they fit the space perfectly. The chairs are sturdy without being heavy. The paint is a rich, glossy black. I have only had the chairs for a couple of months, so I'm not sure how the paint will hold up in our Colorado High Altitude summers. I do have them positioned in a place that will only get morning sun. October 29, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by feel like you're in Paris After going to Paris 6 years ago, I have been looking for a pair of cafe chairs like I saw there. I have looked in antique shops and different mail order houses. I was thrilled when I saw these chairs in my Ballard catalogue. Thanks Ballard for having just what I want. September 3, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Solid item Chairs came well packaged with no defects.Good finish, folding chairs with solid construction suitable for small city terrace. Very pleased. July 27, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by High Quality Versatile, well made, good choice They look exactly as described in catalog. July 27, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sturdy, well made and well packed! These chairs are very well made. We got the gray ones and they look great with the table. Very impressed with the job Ballard does in packing these items. They arrived on time and in excellent condition. July 4, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good chairs! My two cafe chairs came packaged very well for shipping and were in excellent condition upon arrival. I noticed one leg was without a hard plastic tip to protect it from scrapes. Other than that, they are sturdy, seem to be well-made (save for the missing tip) and are very cute on my back patio. June 23, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by The perfect chair for outdoor dining These chairs are sturdy and fold up easily when not in use. However, I keep them on the patio as extra seating when unexpected guests stop by. Chairs can withstand inclement weather. Very attractive and the light green color is perfect. They are a bit pricey though. June 20, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful Outdoor Set The Cafe folding chairs are well constructed, durable, and surprisingly comfortable to sit in! They have endured what has already been a very wet and rainy Spring season, and the black finish on them is holding up beautifully! The set is very elegant and does not take up too much room on my small city patio. June 16, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by Perfect for a Small Space For a small patio or porch, these bistro chairs are perfect. Add a small bistro table and you have a terrific intimate space for meals or a relaxing glass of wine. The chairs are fairly comfortable as they are (cushions could be added). And they stand up the the strong sun we have in Southern California. March 16, 2011
