Messina Dining Table is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 71.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the table but disappointed in color! I was looking for a table that would fit in my dining area and this one fits perfectly. It is very well made and was packaged very securely. I have ordered from Ballard Designs many times and am always happy with the quality. Although I love the quality of this table I am not very happy with the color. The description says distressed antique white and the picture looks white. The table is however more of a greenish color. I am going to paint it. Hope it works! Other than the color I absolutely love the table!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall beautiful but can't push in chairs on the end As others have said, this is a beautiful and unique table. I wish the base was constructed like the larger table, which allows chairs on the end to be pushed in. My husband was really displeased with that design. Also the base of the table had a slight defect as only one side had the hole drilled for the bolt, which secures the table.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful table I will have to get a piece of glass to cover the table, because i placed it at my fishing camp and zinc scratches easily.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid table; easy to assemble The Messina Table arrived well packed with ample instructions. Very easy to assemble with a heavy solid feeling. The white finish was creamier than the catalog photo indicates rather than the pure white which makes a bit of difference as we are pairing the table with the stools (which are white) shown in the catalog. We also had some chairs antiqued white which don't exactly match now but we shrugged our shoulders and had a glass of wine. We water-proofed the table to protect it as we are using it on our covered patio. It took the water-proofing just fine and we're looking forward to our first dinner on it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect Fit for Beachy Decor I'm really pleased with this table. It was relatively easy to put together and I look forward to seeing how the zinc top changes in color over the years. This table is nearly a foot narrower than my last table so that will take some getting used to. With eight place settings on the table, there isn't room for anything else like servicing dishes, etc. That's the only drawback I see.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Unique, Sturdy, not perfect, don't pair w/LeMans chairs This table looks just as good as it did in the picture except for the finish, which has an unnatural pattern of distressing in most places -- splotchy, and too uniform. I was tempted to give it a three star rating because of this, but as I've just replaced a 25 year old, oak, 1980s country style set, I have to say it looks terrific in my kitchen and I am pleased with it. I was concerned about the odd "non-usable" ends of the table, but was able to butt one of the short ends up against (a few inches away from) an unused set of sliding glass doors in the dining area which allows for all six seats to have a view of our rural property. The remaining short end could be used in a pinch without much of a problem. I will post a separate review on the chairs per protocol.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost Perfection The table was delivered and positioned in my house by curteous and prompt personel. After opening the packaging and assembling, a corner of the table was found to be damaged. For a reasonable discount, I might have been able to live with it. Ballard agreed to let me think it over for a few days. They just picked it up. But it was a great table, almost perfection.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fabulous table The table is absolutely beautiful. I've been searching for something that no one else has and immediately fell in love with this when I saw it online. I would definitely recommend to others. I do agree with the reviews I read before purchasing, it would have been nice if the cross bar at each end was in further so that you could slide an end chair in. I won't use the ends that much but if I were to use them every day, I would pick another table.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this table This is a great table. Easy to assemble. It is very heavy so I definitely recommend you have it delivered to where you will be assembling it. The only reason for not giving 5 stars is the fact you can't get a chair on each end. Get lots of compliments on it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from True to its representation in photos We just received this table -- will be using it as an accent table in a living room with on occasional use for dining. If we had planned on using it for sitting down to eat - I would have not been able to work with the fact that the table top does not extend beyond the short ends of the table enough to place a chair at each end. That is the only design change I would make -- to be able to accomodate 3 chairs on each length plus 1 on each end. But it is a handsome piece -- very well made. We'll enjoy it for sure.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from solidly built, attractive, easy to assemble I absolutely love this table, but would make one alteration to the design. The ends of the table are flush with the lower cross brace. As a result, people who sit at the end of the table often bang their shins on the brace. If the ends extended out farther, this problem would be eliminated.
Date published: 2011-08-20
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful table, bad design I love this table and table top seems indestructible so far, but the brace at the bottom of the table is very poorly designed. The people sitting at the head of the table can't scoot their chairs in and bang their ankles on the cross bar! I actually removed the cross bars from the table myself and just touched up the paint. Hopefully it will be fine as long as no one dances on the table!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from top scratches easily The top scratches really easily. I mean, just normal eating and a plate moves/slides and causes a scratch. How can someone use this as a daily table with it scratching all the time?
Date published: 2014-08-15
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful table but way too big! I've loved this table since I saw it in the catalog a while back. I've been looking for a 32" deep kitchen table for my small kitchen and it's very hard to find. I thought I'd found it with this but no- it's 76" long! I would buy shorter option in a heartbeat! I love the style and Ballard Designs always has well made furniture.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Beautiful but Scratches Easily This table has so much style, but our happiness with it was dimmed when the zinc top scratched so easily. Now, through everyday use, it is just a mess. I would have thought a table a family would use quite a bit would stand up to scratches better.
Date published: 2019-05-08
Rated 2 out of 5 by from It's not my idea of white... Received our table this afternoon. I am disappointed on the color. It's not white, it's more of a 1980's cream color. Our neighbor said it's green. The table looks better in the evening light, but in the afternoon with the sun coming in, it is not at all attractive. Aside from the color, the table is wonderful and the zinc top is really pretty. The packaging was very well done to protect the table. I will paint it, so hopefully I will love it as much as my other Ballard purchases through the years.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Product has a default after 5 months :( I loved my table the first four months, but just this past month we have noticed the top is starting to buckle and doesn't lay flat on the wood. So sad :(
Date published: 2014-02-01
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not properly represented Honestly, we were slightly disappointed with the table we received only because the table on the website and catalogue didn’t properly represent what we received. The table pictured has a nice “hand distressed” look to it. The table we received only had VERY FEW distress marks on it, not even NEAR the amount of distress this one has. We have also found a split in one of the legs which we hope doesn’t compromise the integrity of the table. We feel that the table presented in the pictures had a lot more attention paid to the detail than the one delivered. We would love to shop here again but now worry that we will not receive what is represented. I have attached a photo (please excuse the mess we are in renovations)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Top is rusting and bubbling/separating from wood underneath Love at first sight with this table. Spent a huge chunk on this table, chairs and carpet from Ballard in May 2014. Now. The zinc top is rusting (?) and is bubbling so badly you cannot place a plate flat. If I find out how to attach a photo I certainly will.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Zinc top beginning to rust badly We bought this table 3 years ago. We absolutely loved it for the first 2 years. It is substantial and has a special and unique look. We have received many compliments on it. The top does, however, scratch easily (these are very light, superficial scratches and did not detract from the rustic look of the table imo). This past year, those light scratches began to rust, and it has been spreading rapidly. It cannot be cleaned off and it has gotten so bad we now have to replace the table. I really didn't realize the zinc top would rust. It looks really horrible. We do live in Houston where the humidity is high, so I don't know if that has anything to do with it. We are so, so disappointed that the table only looked nice for 2 years!!
