Top Factors to Consider When Selecting Restaurant Tables:
Getting tables for a resto-bar is a big investment. It is essential to get it right. Before you buy commercial tables, consider how the following attributes apply to your restaurant:
Metal tabletops are also a great option, as they’re extremely utilitarian, robust & durable for outdoor use. Available material styles are wrought iron, cast iron, stainless steel & a few more compound metals.
Marble tabletops that are made in stone, quartz, granite, or Italian marble are also great for premium restaurants
A table is the first thing that grabs the attention of any patron when they enter a restaurant, bar, or cafe. This is one of the main reasons to create a lasting impression by choosing dining tables of unique patterns and designs.
Getting a supplier who does customizations is key, as every restaurant is unique in some way & requires minor customizations even for perfected products.
- Tabletop shapes:
Tabletops usually come in round, square, and rectangular. There are a few other shapes discussed below that can be custom-made. Each shape has its own advantages as well as space considerations.
- Table Base Designs
Table bases not only provide support and are key for a well-balanced table but also come in a number of designs.
- Round table tops: Good for facilitating conversations since everyone at the table sits opposite or at an angle to each other. However, the round shape is not the most layout-efficient design since it takes up more usable space than other tabletop shapes.
- Square table tops: The traditional tabletop design in which people sit equally spaced – maybe not the most ideal design for sparking conversations – however, the shape makes it easy to add tables against each other to provide ample seating for larger groups.
- Cross base tables: The most used table base design, cross is ‘X’ shaped table bases that provide ample support and balance and are not intrusive when you have diners seated on the table.
- Round base table: Although round bases provide a substantial degree of balance and support, however, they are not the most interesting to look at.
- Trestle base tables: An aesthetically pleasing design, trestle bases also provide a high degree of sturdiness and stability.
- Custom bases for restaurant table: Although more expensive than usual bases, however, custom-designed table bases add a lot of character and pizzazz to the restaurant’s décor.Rectangle table tops: Another conventional tabletop design in which people sit equally spaced. While it isn’t comparable to round the round tables, however, rectangular tables are the most space-efficient designs
3. Table height
Tables that are kept in restaurants usually come in 3 table height options:
- Standard height tables are usually 30-inch high and are designed for use with chairs of ~18-inch seat height which is the standard sitting height for most dining chairs.
- Counter height tables are usually 36-inch high and are designed for use with counter-height chairs or stools of ~24-inch seat height. You may also click here to check out designs for our restaurant counters that marry well with our table collections

- Extra tall tables are made-to-order as per the requirement of clients. One needs to engineer them carefully with wider bases for balance and foot rings to allow for comfortable ingress and egress.
