Café Folding Chairs - Set of 2 is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 37.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bistro chairs The chairs are great, comfortable, sturdy, they fold and stack in very little space, wonderful colors, and a good price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well made and comfortable Well designed, comfortable, excellent paint job and good color selection. Cushions are a bit pricy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.
Date published: 2013-06-07
Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.
Date published: 2012-04-21
Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.
Date published: 2011-06-20
Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Some Hardware Issues I like the look and in general it is a decent piece. However, within a few weeks a rivet broke and some of the rubber pads slip off frequently.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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.
Date published: 2013-05-22
Rated 2 out of 5 by from This product will not last long I own six of these cafe chairs. They are really cute and are priced well but there are three major issues. First they are very hard to open, second they will rust so you must keep them covered and third the pins in the cross section of the chair legs have begun to split in two, making the chair unusable. Ballard does not sell parts to fix the chair they just want you to buy another chair. Save your money and buy something else.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Chairs break at the hinges (on multiple chairs) We bought 8 of these chairs in Orange and so far 6 of them have broken as soon as someone (all petite women) sat on them. The bolt in the legs are not stable. Ballard has sent us replacements but we continue to experience the issue. Maybe it is something with the orange ones, but we love the look of them but they are terrible.
Date published: 2017-05-29
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bolts break, no stars These chairs are garbage. The bolts on the legs rust out very quickly and snap apart making the chairs useless. These bolts can not be replaced or fixed. After a very short time, 3 out of 4 chairs purchased were gone. Save your money.
Date published: 2016-05-27
Rated 1 out of 5 by from 5 of 8 have broken I love the way these chairs look-I got them in white, and they are perfect at my kitchen table. They are not super comfy, but cute cushions take care of that. The problem that I've had, though, is with a seeming design flaw...I initially ordered 6 chairs, and within a week 2 of them had broken at the same spot--where the legs join the mechanism severed. Ballard Designs customer service (very friendly) swapped them out for me. Now we've had the original 4 chairs and the 2 new ones for about a year, and as of last night, 3 more have broken in the same spot (where the legs "glide" apart). The metal that the chair is made of is nice and substantial--it's only the joint that seems to be the problem. I wish there was some way to fix this as the chairs are really great looking. So you'll know, we are small people so weight is not the issue!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from all four chairs are rusting within days after putting on deck. table is fine, all four chairs are rusting. Chairs ordered where white. Spa color not available at time of order. If you are going to replace, pls replace with spa color.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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...
