          Customer comments about Portica 60x30 Dining Table/Desk:

          What can I say, this desk is perfect for my office. Initially I took issue with the finish in that there was a small area on the desk top that was excessively shiny and oily in appearance, which didn't affect my use of the piece, but was unsightly and annoying. I couldn't rub it away; neither did it dissipate or blend in when I used the recommended citrus based furniture polish. Customer service assured me the area would dry out in time and offered a replacement piece if I wished, but I decided to stick it out as the wood graining was so beautiful. Wood grain features are of importance to me, so I didn't want to give up this particular desk. Needless to say, in a couple of months the issue resolved completely.

          Delivery service was impeccable.

            We use this table for breakfast, as well as for general laptop work. Its surface is great--we chose the glass with white painted underside--hides dirt and cleans perfectly with windex. It looks so good that we only clean its surface once a week or so. Nice-looking legs and frame is solid. Delivery men were on time and very careful and polite.

              We love our new table a lot.. It looks perfect in our dining room as we had just upgraded our old table. The marble is so easy to clean and maintain. I am also thinking about using the same combination in my office when I upgrade that.

                i paired this desk with two 3-drawer files on rolling caster under the desk on each side. It looks fabulous with the shell finish, that has a wonderful suggestion of taupe-streaks of light brown color. It is slightly smaller than my previous desk so I used the purchase as chance to be more efficient and throw away some non-essentials. The entire home office /guest room remodel is perfect!

                      This table seems durable, extremely heavy, and indestructible. I have 2 little girls who are always at the table working on homework, crafts or eating. The table is not sealed but I can't tell the difference between the unsealed table and my sealed granite counter tops. I haven't noticed any staining as noted in the other comments. It is easy to clean, we use only a paper towel with a tad bit of dawn dish soap. Cleans nicely with a nice shine. I originally wanted a wood table but ultimately wanted something that my children wouldn't destroy overtime. The only con is that I feel like I am always cleaning this table but that is expected when you get a black granite table. Overall I really love the table and the quality design. I get a ton of compliments.

                      Service and delivery comments:

                      Delivery was horrible!!! Delivery guys could not fit their 18 wheeler into my gated neighborhood. I know that it could have been possible because my daughters school bus is able to enter the neighborhood fine. The delivery guys called me and told me they were outside my neighborhood. I literally had to pick them up in my suv, put down the seats, and have them sit in the back of my suv with the door wide open while they put the table on a dolly with the back open and held on the dolly while i drove. I drove super slow hoping they table would fall and get ruined.

                      Customer comments about Portica 60x30 Dining Table/Desk:

                      We love the brightness of the steel frame with the white quartz top. Prior to ordering we ordered several samples of the various surface options - and ended up choosing the quartz because I couldn't get it to stain and it was the easiest to clean (Since we have a 12 month old eating directly on the surface this was our biggest priority.). We definitely abused the samples as much as possible - left wine and grape juice on for days, various baby messes, pieces of butter, straight pizza grease, etc.

                      The quartz is a complete breeze to clean (just spray with mixture of water and a minute amount of bleach) and wipe off. Perfect.

                      The only relatively more difficult part is cleaning the space between the surface and the frame. Our baby is able to smear yogurt/etc in there. We use a metal skewer to push a cloth in between.

                      Aesthetics-wise we love the brightness. It can be very grey and rainy here and the dining area always looks fresh. The only significant downside is that the surface gets very, very cold. I guess it could be great for rolling out pastry dough!

                            Service and delivery comments:

                            The entire experience has been terrible. I've been waiting for over 2 months, despite repeated promises. I've had to call several times, each time being told they were taking care of it and would follow up with a call. The follow up calls never come, leaving me to have to call back. It's one thing that products aren't ready, it's entirely another thing to leave someone in the dark -- and fail to repeatedly live up to promises. Never again will I purchase from Room and Board. I would expect more, and typically receive more from competitors.

                              Q:

                              Is it possible to change the top of the desk after purchase (we originally purchased desks with maple tops and would like to change them to lighter material).

                                The frosted glass is not fully opaque. It is possible to see the table frame from underneath as well as let light through.

                              When delivered, is the table fully assembled or do you assemble it on site? I am worried that if the legs do not come off I will not be able to get it up our narrow staircase to the room I want it in. Thanks.

                                The welded construction of the Portica base does not allow for the legs to be removed.

                                The Portica base is only available in stainless steel. However, you may order the Pratt table in white powdercoat in a variety of stocked and custom sizes.

                                The Portica base is 1.5" square Stainless Steel tubing. The Pratt collection is the same size, simply with a white powdercoat over natural steel. It can be custom ordered in the size you prefer if it's not a part of our stock offering.

I see in one of your photos that you have a Mac modeled on the table. Just want to confirm that it is sturdy/stable enough. Please advise, thanks so much!

                                The Portica table with a glass top is definitely sturdy and you can confidently use it as a desk with everything you'd expect to find on a work surface including a computer.

                              Hi,

                              I was wondering if the sand quartz composite would stain if I did not use a coaster or if I spilled something on the desk? I purchased the india black granite coffee table for this reason but was unsure of the quartz composite. I know when the quartz is around 90% no staining occurs but was also not sure how much quartz is being used in the composite. I really love this sand color and it would contrast nicely with the india black coffee table being in the same room.

                              Thank you for your time!
