    We were really looking forward to our visit to Table 16 having dined at the Undercurrent restaurant the week prior The good - The greeter, waitress and manager were all pleasant helpful and engaging . 50% of the items on the tasting menu were very good , 25% were average and 25% were unremarkable to poor. I had the soft shelled crab and while the taste of the dish was pleasing the poor crab was completely overshadowed literally and in terms of taste with "other stuff"which should have been added only to enhance the taste and texture of the crab . The dish lacked balance .The haddock was a 2 inch square piece of fish that was over done and crispy on the thin edges and heavy and greasy in the middle .

    I arrived for my 8:30 reservation and saw that most people had finished dinner and were about to leave. Nevertheless, the host was most accomodating and told me not to worrry that they were still open and happy to have me. I had a great dinner and wonderful service - and didn't feel rushed or akward! TRUE SOUTHERN HOSPITALITY! I'll be back the next time I'm in Greensboro!

    Been to Table 16 several times, and even though it's a little pricey, we have always had an exceptional dinner. Always had a knack for putting together unusual combinations of food for an exceptional experience. Last Saturday, we ordered fois gras. It came with grilled peaches. Problem was there was so little fois gras that all I got was a mouthful of peaches. Our server was very sweet, but could not open a bottle of wine, which is something I don't expect in a restaurant of this caliber. She did not check on us throughout our meal and didn't pour our wine from the bottle. The lobster rolls were on stale slider buns, with tiniest dab of lobster I have ever seen. Poor presentation, horrible food, terrible service. Will not be back.

    The raw oyster appetizer was absolutely delicious with the fennel, olive oil and finely diced apple -- it is a new favorite of mine. The mahi mahi with peas and potato salad were fantastic. The fish was tender, juicy, well-seasoned and had very good depth of flavor. If the skin were crispy, it would have been perfect -- don't get me wrong, the fish was very delicious. The andouille sausage with okra side dish was very savory and smoky, but a little on the heavy side, with the sauce overpowering the sausage and okra a bit. Service was friendly and knowledgeable, but not very attentive as I had expected, especially given that the restaurant was not full when we dined. Another great meal at Table 16, and looking forward to my next visit...!

    We've been going to Table 16 since Chef Graham opened it 11 years ago. He's am incredible chef and gets to know his customers. His menus are creative, incredibly delicious and prepared to perfection. It's our "go to" restaurant for every special occasion, when we have out of town guests, or just for a special dinner out.

    The pheasant was so dry and overcooked the whole table shook when we tried to cut it & this was our entree. We asked to substitute sides for the Carolina rice and rather than substitute, they removed the rice from the plate and charged us full price for each side (removing food and charging extra is really just poor business, in my opinion). I had to ask for the table bread. The waiter "totally spaced out" (his words) & forgot my drink for over 30 minutes. When looking up, I noticed the top of the wall in front of me was littered with cooking oil and food stuff-hardly what I think of when I think "fine dining." Why do I want to see pantry items while I spend over $150 for dinner? The worst dining experience I have had in Greensboro, NC.

We could not have asked for a more relaxing atmosphere to enjoy great food and wine, while catching up with life long friends. Thank you for the special evening!

We had a 6:30 reservation and called to say we would be 10min late which was not a problem at all and out table was waiting for us. Very nice service attentive but not over powering. Lovely meal all the way around from appetizer to dessert which we did not need but had to try anyway. We will definitely return.

    We have eaten here many times at night but for the first time we tried their special 3-course Easter Brunch. Service was really top-notch. My wife enjoyed eggs benedict while I enjoyed the skirt steak. My Dad loved the chicken and blueberry sausage starter and my wife loved the duck pastrami starter as well. Only misstep might have been the lemon chess pie dessert. Should have gotten the bread pudding as Mom's taste was delicious. They even brought a complimentary side plate of fruit for our baby boy to enjoy (even though he's still too young). Very thoughtful and attentive service with great food to match. Hope they will be able to do more brunch specials again soon. And at such a reasonable price!

    We have been coming to Table 16 each Furniture Market for the past 7 years, so 1 - 2 times per year. We have had some splendid dinners and the staff would welcome us back. However the last 2 times (both Fall and recently just this April), we have noticed the wait staff is different, the food portions are reduced, the drink portions are reduced and the prices remain the same or higher. Unfortunately, we wont be returning next time and suggest owners/management take a hard look at their practices.... and make some adjustments, because you are losing your customers.

    My wife and I have been going to Table 16 several times a year for the last few years. It is our favorite restaurant in Greensboro. We always get the Table 16 Tasting as it allows us to taste many different options instead of just one. We went last Friday with some friends of ours and they love it as well. Very eclectic menu and variety of tastes. The meal is pricey, but a great treat three or four times a year. Graham never fails to come to the table and thank us for the business and staff are courteous, helpful and knowledgeable. I highly recommend Table 16 for special occasions, business meals or just a great time.

Susan really took the time inform us about the restaurant and it's history. Later Amy took over for us and got our food order. Amy was also very informative and knew the entire menu from memory and the daily specials. Impressive. The food came out and was awesome. We will be back and we will bring friends. Jason S.
