Our reservation was for 6:30 PM on a Saturday night and the restaurant was closed when we arrived. We were having dinner with friends and we had to scramble to find another restaurant that would seat us. Table 16 should have called us beforehand to warn us that they would be closed. Very unprofessional.

nothing to review as the restaurant was closed. Had reservations for our 38th wedding anniversary and was really looking forward a love evening. Very disappointed to arrive and find doors locked with a sign indicating restaurant was closed. Don't really remember the reason and don't really care. The restaurant should have blocked the dates. As it was we punted and went to LaRue. Highly recommend it. They are now closed until early August for a move.
Unfortunately, despite having an OpenTab ...
Unfortunately, despite having an OpenTable reservation, when I arrived at the restaurant it was not open. I double-checked all doors because the main entrance is around to the side. However, you could see inside that the outdoor tables were still stacked on top of each other, the lights were off and there was no staff. There was no signage that the restaurant was closed. I called the main number and no one answered. I double-checked both the restaurant's web-site and Facebook page and the hours were correct. I thought perhaps something bad had happened, but was still surprised by no signage. Initially, I sent a message via their Facebook page to see what had happened. After waiting 2-3 days with no response (despite Facebook saying there is usually a response within one day from that account), I emailed the address on their web-site. Still, no response days later I am not looking for anything free, just a simple explanation and/or apology. I'm new to Greensboro and this restaurant had come highly recommended/reviewed and I wanted to take a friend there to try it out. I dine out 3-4 times per week since I work from home and get bored there! I also did not want to leave a negative review which is why I reached out to the restaurant in two different ways and gave them plenty of time to respond.
OpenTable requires a review of the food above, so I had to answer those questions to move forward and write about my actual "non-experience" here. I have no basis with which to speak to anything other than service which was completely lacking. It's possible at the time that OpenTable had an incorrect email for me, but that doesn't explain the non-response to my two other inquiries or the lack of signage that the restaurant was closed. I'm disappointed. If there had even been an attempt at an apology, I would have gone back to give it a try. As it is, I've enjoyed experiencing other downtown restaurants that I have now started to frequent.

When we arrived for our reservation on June 22nd, the restaurant was dark and locked. No sign on the door, nothing. Very upsetting. On a positive note, we did go to B Christophers and had excellent service and a fabulous meal.

THE RESTAURANT WAS CLOSED! After making an online reservation and taking an VIP client to eat at Table 16, on a weekday at 6:30pm, I was shocked and embarrassed to find the restaurant was locked and closed. No sign, and nothing indicating on the reservation web site they were closed?? I don’t think I will be trying them again.

This used to be our favorite date night restaurant. Food was expensive and usually worth the price. My husband's mahi mahi and our scallop appetizer were amazing. My Chilean Sea Bass had a strange consistency and very funny after taste. The restaurant also had an unusual odor that night.
The first time I went to this restaurant ...
The first time I went to this restaurant in 2011 for an engagement dinner, my wife and I were blown away by the mastery of every menu item, the incredible knowledge, professionalism, and friendliness of the staff. In the last 3 times we've had dinner here, it's just different. The menu is cheaper and with it the quality of the dining experience has suffered as well. The wait staff has been stiff and ordinary and the quality of the food while still quite good, is bland in comparison to our previous experiences here. It's unfortunate. Not sure if there has been a change in ownership or the kitchen staff, but for us there better restaurants available that measure up as well or better to what is being offered here.
Food outstanding. Thursday night is a great night for date night at Table 16. You can bring a bottle of your favorite wine with no corkage fee. Also table 16 is just pleasantly crowed that evening making the evening even more special. Will definitely be there again.

A pre graduation dinner with our daughter. A lovely place with quiet background music. Soft conversations all around were not overwhelming nor distracting. Food and service were prompt/courteous/excellent! The staff were attentive and kind. We'll likely not be back soon as we live in TX. But would be a favorite otherwise. A MUST GO!
A great experience with very good food. ...
A great experience with very good food. I would recommend this restaurant for anyone.
There were several positives. Our server was wonderful, she was a positive, humble person and took any and all comments in stride. She earned five stars. Most of the food was absolutely delight, but a particular shout out to their Pastry Chef. He/she made one of the best creme burlees I have ever tasted. The special dessert of the night, an Esspresso Toffee cake concoction was divine. I hope the Pastry Chef makes it again.
There were really only two negatives. One was that there was a large corporate event being held. This raises the noise level and the staff was obviously stretched pretty thin. The second was that they changed their seafood supplier, and the scallops were chewy. These are pretty situational things so it shouldn't be a problem for others going to the resturant.
Great place for an Anniversary!
First time for us at Table 16 but certainly not the last! Thought we'd use our RSVP but decided to save it. So many amazing menu choices. My husband was happily surprised that there was a burger on the menu. He has been on a quest for the "best burger " and said he has finally found it after all these years The hangar steak I ordered was cooked to perfection! We both enjoyed a delicious fresh Arugula salad that actually came on two plates for us when we told our waiter we were sharing. Guy , our waiter did such an amazing job taking care of us. He could not have been more attentive. Service was impeccable ! Food ....fantastic! Now we just need to know how to get that romantic "table in the window" next time!
A Short Evening
We have wanted to try Table 16 since we moved here two years ago. We thought it would be perfect for our anniversary dinner. It was a short evening. We made reservations for 7:30. After we were ushered to our table, and the restaurant was not full, it was 10 minutes before we were approached and offered water. Not that big a deal, but then we were informed they were out of Snapper, Mahi and Shrimp at 7:45 on a Saturday. That made all the options we were interested in a moot point. The table next to us was served a shrimp dish with too few shrimp and were offered a free dessert. How can a supposedly top restaurant run out of key proteins. We left after 30 frustrating minutes. Come on! For the prices you charge (including $2 for extra bread and a $4 sharing charge) you need to do much better.
Always a treat
Table 16 is a local staple and consistently delivers a great experience, one of Greensboro's top restaurants. The menu is excellent, the preparation and presentation always top notch, and the service is delivered by professional, experienced servers.
3rd Time Not A Charm
This was my 3rd return visit. Past experiences were spot on. I've always gotten the tasting menu and it's always been a great experience. This time it was very disappointing. The food lacked depth and flavor. The combinations were odd and the flow from course to course lacked rhythm. Hope next visit is better.
Wondered why we hadn't been back sooner....
My husband and I celebrated my husband's birthday last Saturday and were very pleased with our experience. The food, drinks and ambiance were wonderful. My husband enjoyed the beer selection. We have not been in sometime and wondered why. Will be going back.

The food was fresh, hot, and wonderful! We had spare ribs for an appetizer. I had the baby greens with feta cheese salad and the hanger steak with crab dumplings. My husband had the ham sandwich with pork rice. It was all really delicious. The wait staff was excellent and attentive. The owner was very nice and welcoming! We love this restaurant and will return next month for the new menu!!
Great find in Greensboro
This was our second visit in less than a month. We came first with friends from out of town. They were impressed, as were we. This time, it was just the two of us. Food was wonderful both times. Service was knowledgeable, prompt and pleasant. Not rushed to dine. Parking can be a bit of a problem, but be prepared to walk a block or so. We will come back.
Very nice, romantic meal
My wife and I enjoyed a nice meal the night before Valentine's Day. The restaurant was fairly busy, so the noise level wasn't as quiet as would have been ideal, but given the V-Day crowd, it was acceptable. Service was good and we weren't rushed at all. Our server did take a couple of passes before he remembered to bring a chiller for our bottle of wine. And he never did bring bread before the meal, even though he said he would be bringing it out. But the food was delicious: wife had rack of lamb, and I had the filet mignon. Cooked perfectly and very tasty. I didn't realize initially that salads were not included with the entree, and I'm surprised that our server never asked if we wanted salads. I chalk some of these minor grievances to the busy night. We would definitely consider this restaurant for another romantic evening in the future.
Delusions of grandeur?
This is Greensboro, NC, people, not New York City. Three scallops for $30.00 is not a good value if Daniel Boulud isn't searing them himself. The "pickled brussels sprouts" turned out to be a very meagre sprinkling of raw brussels sprouts leaves on top of the fish. The carrots and butternut squash had no salt, the grits were too salty. Someone needs to taste in the kitchen before plates go out. The chevre cheesecake was delicious, despite its being misspelled on the menu. Service was good, although our server didn't come back with an answer when she said she'd mention the brussels sprouts to the chef. This restaurant would be a great "small plates" restaurant if they'd half the price of the entrees (or double the size of the entrees and charge the same price!)
We had a reservation, but were seated in ...
We had a reservation, but were seated in the bar area. We heard them say they had a cancelation, so we asked if we could take that down in the dining area. They let us, as long as we were out by 7. When our foods came my husband's was very cold, and they forgot the side. Sent it back to reheat. Meanwhile the side came out, stone cold. Asked if it was supposed to be cold (seriously), no. So it went back too. Eventually everything came back out. And it was very good. But geez, it was valentines day and we were splurging on a good, expensive meal. It wasn't what we were hoping for.
Pleasant Dining Experience
We went for an early Valentine's Day dinner with friends. None of us had been to Table 16 before, although we had read about it. Very pleasant experience, from welcoming at the door, to greeting at the table, to polite and informed server, and, of course, wonderful food. Parking was a bit of an issue, so allow time to find a spot and get to reservation on time.
My birthday dinner at Table16
The experience was awesome! I love this restaurant, and I always look for opportunities to bring friends. All of my guests were first-timers. Most ordered off the menu, I got the chef's tasting, and one guest wanted to try the tasting as well (I have no dietary restrictions; she is Vegan). Everyone loved the food and my Vegan friend was extremely impressed! We might have another regular on our hands! As always, Table 16 exceeded my expectations. :)
Enjoyed a night out with friends
We selected this restaurant from Yelp. We had a reunion of sorts with people I worked with 30+ years ago and who have (finally) moved to NC. We're from the Asheville area ourselves and compare this to the finest we have back home. Very nice ambiance, lighting, location. We thoroughly enjoyed the mussels, oysters, soup, wine and beer list - basically everything we tried was delicious.... Will stop back next time in the area!
Table 16 underperformed for fine dining
My husband and I dined on a Saturday evening. When we asked for a wine recommendation on two bottles we had selected the waiter informed us he had only been working there for one week. Then a more knowledgeable waiter told us they did not have the bottle that was our first choice. The second choice was good but was sold to us at $73 when I discovered it at $19 in a store later this week. My rack of lamb at just over $40 served on a popover was a confused dish in that there was no consistency or medley of flavors. My husband ordered the burger medium with high hopes, but was served the most well done, dry burger ever served. The atmosphere had promise and I desperately want fine dining in Greensboro, but this missed the mark.
Romantic birthday dinner
"I love the relaxed feel of this restaurant. I definitely would return again. The filet was delicious but I would have preferred it to be cooked medium to medium rare not rare. The fish was good. I loved the spaghetti squash but the greens beans were too spicy to eat. Service was well-timed and friendly. They were very accommodating for gluten free and dairy free options."
