    Sadly we had a bad experience on Sunday night. We planned to take our in-laws who had not been prior for our sons 10th birthday because we liked Table 24 so much. We had very poor service from the hostess to the waiter (apparently hired that week). After an hour of being there we finally requested the manager who made amends by comping our dinner and asking for forgiveness...every one has a bad day sort of excuse. We love the food but were sad that the service could be so bad after a few years of being open. This was not an extraordinary night by any means so why weren't they able to handle it??

    Started out with cocktails that needed to be sent back (twice), not sure if the bartender was of age or not...the "house favorite" fried chicken was greasy, tasteless and unseasoned, and the plate looked like leftovers from the fryer (chicken wings are a meal). The coleslaw side was inedible, however the cornbread was the best we tasted. Very inconsistent overall. Hard to say if we will return, far too many other restaurants out there.

    We discovered Table 24. We liked it so much that we came back the next day with our friends. I prefer the fried chicken at Revel, a restaurant in Danville. I tried my wife's fish tacos and it was delicious! I would come back for that and also their pizzas, jambalaya, and mac & cheese. Our server, Missy knew from our Friday visit that we were interested in the special which was Salmon with a lemon pesto sauce. On Saturday, they had changed the special. Missy asked the kitchen if they would do the lemon pesto sauce for us. She arranged that without us asking. It was her idea. It was great! I was going to take the rest home. Instead, my friends who just asked to try it, finished for me and let me nothing to take home.

    I've been going to table 24 for years and find their food quite good. Their fries are to die for! I usually go for lunch. Went for dinner and found they didn't have much choice on the entrees although what I did order was very good. (The short ribs).

    The food is lackluster. The fried chicken was bland. The fish in the fish sandwich did not taste very fresh. The mac'n'cheese was just OK, nothing spectacular. The sweet potato fries were flavorful. They were the best item on the table.

    Our vegetarian's benedict came cold with ham, my husbands scramble came on a tiny bread plate for some reason, the fruit cups tasted vaguely like chemicals and my huevos rancheros was a dry fried egg on top of a plain corn tortilla. We all went to Starbucks to get snacks afterwards... The place was very kid friendly but I think it's mostly because the restaurant seems to have stopped caring.

    Have dined at this restaurant around a dozen times, but this was the first time for brunch. We were among the first, if not the first, patrons that day. Food preparation took far longer than one might have expected given that the orders were for eggs and French toast. Then, when we were finally served, two (of the six) orders were wrong or not prepared as requested. Our waiter was missing in action during the meal, including when it came time to settle the bill. When he finally brought the bill and took our credit card, he left the card on an untended counter and then disappeared again. Once we noticed the credit card sitting on the counter available for anyone to take, we complained to other restaurant staff. Overall, a bad visit.

    Met a client for lunch and this was a great spot. Exceptional service from Travis and it was quiet enough to talk without a stuffy atmosphere. Always looking for a good burger and it's pricey but I'd order it again. My client had the turkey wrap and said he'd come back for it. Had the broccoli cooked with garlic on the side and it was a nice substitution for fries. Would definitely come back.

    Great fried chicken. Service is very friendly. It's a young, learning-the-business staff. But that's OK at this price point. Cocktails were decent (no Belvedere!) and food came quickly (which is great for kids). Nice comfortable vibe to go along with the comfort food. I would go back.

We sat outside and great care was taken to be sure our heater was working. Our server and others paid close attention to our needs. It was a very pleasant experience.

    We made a reservation for dinner before going to a benefit concert at the Orinda Theater. The place was packed with others going to the same show. The hostess was very pleasant and sat us right away. The wait staff, and probably the kitchen, were aware there was a concert at the theater next door and worked fast to take orders and get food to the patrons. I wish we had had more time to take it slow, enjoy our meal and drinks, and appreciate the great staff. Thanks Table 24!

    We had a great meal there on Monday night. One person had the jambalaya which was excellent and very spicy. The server we had was fun, friendly and efficient (I'm sorry I can't remember her name). I had a burger and ordered sweet potato fries. The burger came the plste had regular fries but they quickly fixed the problem. They gave us a really big order of sweet potato fries that was enough for the whole table to share - above and beyond what they needed to do. The only thing that occurred thst was odd was that they were out of a lot of things, including pizza dough so they couldn't offer any pizzas. One of the people in our party wanted pizza. When we were leaving we saw that someone had pizza on their table so that was confusing!

    We went to this restaurant for Mother's Day breakfast. It is a nice looking place and the staff was very welcoming. The meal was ordered and came fairly quickly however for the price you pay, the value was not much more than going to a Denny's. My husband ordered ham and eggs. The eggs were prepared as ordered but he was given two small pieces of ham that appeared to be deli sandwich ham. The sliced white bread was okay. I had ordered the special item which was a stuffed French toast type of item. It was tasty but there was supposed to be stuffed with peppers and sausage but there was probably about 4 pieces of sausage and very little green and red peppers. I had to order a side of chicken apple sausage to feel satisfied. I won't be back

    Actually, just a few reasons. But the food was very good--some was great. Brussel sprouts with bacon, superb, fries topped with cheese bacon and green onions needed more green onions to be noticeable, but otherwise was amazing. My son had a burger and the bite I had alone was reason to go back. My fish tacos were good--not the best I've ever had, and probably wouldn't get those again, but good. Over all, a lovely birthday evening experience.

(1)Turkey " Gobbler Burger" and (1) Turkey wrap" (1) Bloody Mary (1) Flat Tire Beer and (1) House Chardonnay , and (1) cup of coffee was $51.00 excluding tip. Remeber this is Orinda and if you have to ask the price, don't dine there.

    Came here for brunch with my family for my birthday. The staff was great, had a great sense of humor with my 18 month old niece. Everyone was very accommodating, our beautiful waitress was very attentive to us, and as usual, the food was delightful!! I had the mushroom scramble and had to substitute the goat cheese for jack cheese, my husband had the bacon benedict, and the rest of my family, who were at Table 24 for the first time, more than enjoyed their breakfast pizza, breakfast burrito, chop salad, and sandwiches. Thank you Table 24 for a lovely birthday brunch!!

    We had a reservation at 8:30 and the first thing the waiter said was "kitchen is closing in 15 minutes so you have to order fast." They rushed our food, still eating our salad when the main course was put on our table. Temperature inside the restaurant was freezing, as if they already shut down the heater. Food was ok but everything else was lousy. Will not be back here.

    First we were 12, then a cozy 10, then 8, and the staff took our dwindling numbers very much in stride. That's what I love about this little eatery, everyone who works there is happy, knowledgeable, flexible, and just nice. The wine list is small, but from my pov well chosen (some of my hard-to-find faves), the specials are always fresh and well-prepared, and the menu full of good dishes of all sizes. Splurging? You can have nachos slathered in cheese. Slimming? You can have a wonderful salad with grilled meat or fish. What more can you ask?!

    Nice restaurant allowing early early dining before the dining crowd. Since our party was the only table being served received very attentive service. Complementary ample parking in the garage below the building was nice. Simple menu. Pricing was moderate. Ordered the Fish entrée which was quite good, but not worth the price. I had expected a larger portion of Salmon for $24.95. In the future I will ask the size of the entrée in ounces before ordering. Ordered one scoop of ice cream and received basically a sundae. Nice touch to end the meal.

    We'd looked at their menu online for brunch and this must have been a really old one that wasn't updated because most of the dishes weren't on there. No doughnuts, biscuits, etc. I had to look at the restaurant sign several times to check that it was the same one I'd reserved. Otherwise, the food was fine but nothing really special. Good enough for a casual lunch.

    Enjoyed a nice meal here. Met a friend for dinner on a Friday evening who I hadn't seen in a long time. Not really the place to "catch up," as we were surrounded on all sides by families with young kids...the place was packed with them including outside tables. My friend and I had to lean into our table to hear each other for the entire visit. Service was friendly and food good. Reasonable prices.
