    This place is a gem. The food was perfectly cooked and delicious, and prepared only from the freshest ingredients. Our server was engaging, humorous, fun, and attentive. The owner visited with us for quite a while, and she was lovely. This was one of the best restaurants I’ve ever eaten at. Can’t wait to go back!

    Went to The Table because recommended restaurants in town are closed on Sunday. Cute place with great service. We had a nice meal but would not go back or recommend after trying several other places in town.

    First of all I was very excited to book our reservation at the Inn. My dear friends were coming to visit from out of state. The review ranking was high, though the pictures made it look more glamorous then it was. Not sure if this was just an off night or inexperienced kitchen staff. Our reservation were at 6:15 and not very busy, few tables seated. I ordered the lamb dinner medium rare($38). It came out precooked & reheated to medium. Funny that the menu stated longer waiting time for cooking this dish, only to warm it up and when it arrived it was not even hot. My dinner was taken back and I then ordered the Shrimp and Grits. As My friend ordered it and it looked good. Unfortunately to both our surprise the shrimp was under cooked !! The grits & the surrounding accompaniment was delicious. Wow 3 dinners ordered that were not eatable. Another friend ordered the Duck dinner which she said the duck was good except for the mashed potatoes (less then warm & dry). We had 2 appetizers which were good. The Fried green tomatoes were delicious and crisp and the duck rolls. To keep our dining from completely being a disaster we only remarked & sent back the lamb dish. Our server Noticed that my friend left all her shrimp on her dish and ate the grits, I know she knew but decided not to ask. I took mine home to reheat and finish the cook off on the shrimp. Our server was apologetic and gifted our bottle of wine off our check as a compensation. I’m not sure I would risk going back for another dinner.

    My husband and I both commented that our meals were the best we ever had! We were celebrating out 36th anniversary in the quaint town of Edenton. For my meal, I ordered the filet mignon (just melted in my mouth) and I choose as my sides, the white truffle risotto and spinach. My husband ordered the scallops and he just raved about how sweet they tasted. Our only wish is that we lived closer to this phenomenal restaurant. The service was excellent too! And don't forget to order dessert!!! Yummy!

    Birthday dinner and mentioned the birthday girl Was gluten free - they had gluten free bread ready for her with the normal bread basket and had gluten free desserts to offer her. Food was delicious - scallops - salmon and fillet - all done perfectly along with the risotto, potatoes and asparagus. Very quiet - if you are looking for a romantic dinner or special occasion - this is it!

    We stayed at the inn during our visit to Edenton. We really enjoyed our dinner at The Table. Service was friendly and attentive. Atmosphere was intimate and cozy. Food was excellent, but they were "out" of many menu items, which meant getting our 2nd choices. The bill reflected our less expensive first choice which was a nice touch. We were too full for dessert, which was a happy problem to have. We would love to come back!

    I’ve tried The Table several times because I really want to like it. Each time I’ve been there the service has been poor and the food is OK but not up to ‘fine dining’ standards. They really have a great thing going with the location and the courtyard, with some small tweaks it could be an amazing restaurant!

    We appreciate the limited menu offerings at The Table which we consider an indicator of focus on quality ingredients and flavor, a priority for us. Unfortunaley, our dinners were room temp by the time they arrived, and less than appealing. Our dining partners' scallops were hot off the stove - lucky them. We trued to get the attention of our server, but the restaurant was woefully understaffed. However, at bill time, our tabs were mixed up. We sent the bill back twice for corrections, and just gave up on the third iteration. For a restaurant listed in the top 1% of NC dining venues, I'm sorry to say our plans for an evening of quality dining fell flat. We opted not to dine at Inner Banks the following evening.

    Again the short ribs were very good but the scallop plate of 4 quarter size scallops is certainly not jumbo scallops as shown on the menu. The scallops were also served coooler than normal temperature. For a Saturday night, business was light, server very friendly and atttentive but food to table was slower than normal. The new Chef, Walker explained he ran the kitchen alone with plating help from the two wait staff. It seems The Table is undergoing a realignment with additional help being sought. The restuarant is a great meal location, with cocktails available, good appetizers and small but varied menu. The desserts also are limited, and over valued. We enjoyed the evening over all and will return to see how the new leadership proceeds with their farm to table plans.
