The food was good, nothing spectacular and was overpriced. The service was good, not excellent but in all fairness to the waitress, she was the only one serving that evening. She was not very knowledgeable about the entrees being served. The restaurant is okay but certainly not a place for a romantic dinner, the tables are close together and the noise carries.

A bit disappointing. The service was so slow and not up to the standards you would expect from this type of restaurant. The food was good, but not outstanding and certainly not gourmet.

We were slightly disappointed after hearing such good comments from others who had eaten there.
The setting is charming and initial atmosphere was pleasant. It soon became apparent the the wait staff was under stress. We soon discovered that one of our selected entries was unavailable and that our first choice wine was out of stock. The food arrived within a reasonable time and it was good. However, based on the cost of the entrees verses the quality and presentation of the dishes, we were somewhat underwhelmed. Although we had a satisfactory meal, we will not be returning in the future. For the prices charges, we give it a 3-star rating.

As much as it pains me to write negative comments I honestly was a little disappointed with my overall experience... I had heard great things so of course my expectations were high! The restaurant is in a beautiful old building and the young man that greeted us was very personable. Warm rolls and herb butter were delicious ,our entrees were good but not great. I think the dessert menu was a little underwhelming ...ice cream ,sorbet and chocolate torte...however the flourless torte was much to my surprise quite delicious.
Unfortunately what really made the experience negative was our server. She didn’t introduce herself, did not crack a smile even once ,did not mention specials, and honestly was borderline rude... I know everyone is entitled to a bad day but it wasn’t busy at all and we were not a demanding group... I expect more from this caliber of restaurant.
I would still recommend the restaurant though in the hopes that it was just an off night!

Amazing food! A MUST if you are visiting Edenton. We started with the shrimp cocktail and seasonal salads - so fresh and so delicious. I probably could have stopped there...but we both had their crab cakes as our entree - I’d say by far the best Crab cakes I ever had! Very little filler - perfectly served over “warm potato salad” which was not at all what I thought - these potatoes were creamy, rich and like the texture of risotto - great flavor! Brocollini was perfect and to top it off... I’m even gonna rave about the dinner rolls and herbed butter - best on the planet! Overall the food in Edenton is wonderful- but this place is a treasure!!!

Was looking for a romantic dinner location and this fell short. The ding area is open with no privacy, or ambiance. When I made reservation I asked for a more private table and they seated us right inside the front door in the middle of the Room. Food was decent but nothing to rave about. Service was mediocre at best, waitress was abrupt and not friendly.

I called to confirm there was wheelchair access...and told there was. Upon arrival there was no designated handicap parking and I had to unload my wife in the parking lot, park the car and return to wheel her to the restaurant. The access is through the side of the building, over broken steeping stones, uneven ground, no lighting and up an old, dirty wooden ramp next to the trash. I wheeled her into the side door, past the restrooms and kitchen then into the dining room. Thankfully there were no guests present as it was a very difficult way to for my wife to arrive in the dining room of an establishment of this calibre. Certainly it is possible to clean up the wheel chair access to allow a more dignified way to enter the dining room at The Table.

It was a beautiful spring evening to dine outside. The courtyard area very inviting. Excellent service
from wait staff. Our waiter was from Wake Forest NC too! Always find it is a small world on our travels. Food and drinks were well prepared. Small choice menu, but great for the setting.

This is a quaint, small place that is worth a try. There is no bar, but they will serve you a drink out on the patio if you prefer to have a cocktail away from your dining table. For the meal, the winter salad was really good with a great house dressing which was a sort of sweet and sour vinaigrette. I ordered the moroccon filet. It was cooked perfectly rare as requested, but the dry rub was really tasteless. And this left the filet to be fairly tasteless. My wife ordered a seafood dish, on the menu as trout, but snapper was substituted that night. She really enjoyed hers. I got to eat her grilled asparagus which was great also. Overall, I thought this place was great to try once, but it was too expensive for the quality I felt. We probably would not return.

The venue is stunning with a gorgeous open garden and grounds, perfect for small weddings. However, there was no music in the very quiet dining room which led to a somewhat sepulchral atmosphere and our server seemed to be distracted by our presence, and suggested that our original 7:30 reservation would have been inconvenient. Furthermore, while our meal was flavorful, technique was not up to the 32 dollar entree price, with our duck breast so tough and overcooked, it was difficult to cut with a steak knife. This place has so much potential with the gorgeous location, but needs to step up the service professionalism and food execution if they want to charge 50+ per person for drinks and a meal.

The food was outstanding. Everything we had was creative and hyper-fresh. I wasn't expecting much from the bread service, but oh wow was I wrong on that! Best I've had in years! We shared two small plates: bacon wrapped brussel sprouts and tuna tartare. Presentation was good on the sprouts and beautiful on the tuna. My husband had rainbow trout and asparagus. I had smoked duck breast with pureed parsnips and sauteed rainbow chard. We both wanted to lick our plates! For dessert we shared a perfect mixed berry sorbet. The wine list was not large, but was solid.

The only slightly off note was that there was only one server who was helped by a manager. The server started us out just right, but she became overwhelmed as more tables were seated. It wasn't enough to put us off though. We'll definitely be back!

This restaurant is a gem. I had several options from their small plate menu and everything was delightful. The bread service started things right with a house-spread creation that I’ve never had before but rate as an absolute 5/5 that could compete ANYWHERE. Then I tried the bacon-wrapped Brussel sprouts (5/5), the steak-wrapped shrimp (4.8/5), the shrimp cocktail with house made cocktail sauce (6/5!!!), and the shepherd’s pie (4.5/5). The shepherd’s pie needed a little salt and pepper to take it to 5/5 status,

This is our second time visiting the restaurant (first time being in May and our experience was exceptionally wonderful!) Like last time, we sat outside because the ambience is very peaceful and relaxing. Overall, we were disappointed with this go-round. My mom and I wanted martinis with tito's vodka and the waitress had told us that they (owners) did not go to the liquor store that day so they were out. Secondly, we were so hoping for the charcuterie appetizer and were told that they no longer serve it, so we settled for fried green tomatoes. Other options were fried oysters or a salad; also bummed with the lack of options available. Our entree of scallops were absolutely amazing as always; however during our last experience we were served 4 scallops on a bed of risotto with creamed spinach (ahhh-mazing), and this time we had 3 scallops with a small amount of assorted veggies. When asking our waitress for dessert options, given that we were still hungry, we had two simplistic options, unlike our first experience when we had been offered an array of desserts and chose the wonderful creme brulee! Needless to say, this experience was so far off from our first and may hinder whether we ever come back.

Our review would have been better but they were out of a selection of wines and 2 of the main entrees. Knowing the entrees were gone this should have been explained up front before we ordered not afterwards. Yes, they apologized but not enough. We also had guests from out of state and we had given great reviews and their expectations were not met.
