Had 2 pints at Gibbs Hundred, also recommended, before walking to the corner. It was a slow night, which further encouraged us to do Chef's 5-course "feed me." Started with excellent oysters, raw but topped with pickled onions. Then seared tuna with bokchoy, followed by pheasant, followed by a very tender and unusual cut of steak. A chocolate creation came for dessert, but my vocabulary is limited to saying "cake," only much better. Wine pairings also stellar, a French sparkling followed by two complex reds. We've had small meals there b4, also where we split a salad, an entree and a side, so cheap eats available. Go for the food, stay for the atmosphere.

Had a great experience this evening! My wife and I weren't going to let the snow storm ruin date night, and were excited to know Table 16 was still open and we could come in for our reservation! We did the chef's choice 5 course, and everything was AMAZING! The staff was great, and can't wait to come back again!
Have to report this experience was a dis ...
Have to report this experience was a disappointment. Perhaps it's "my bad" for giving this place a first try on New Years Eve but the special Menu looked promising and I'm always up for an adventure. First let's talk about what went well: I received a call earlier in the day to confirm the reservation and inquire about any dietary restrictions/allergies the chef should be prepared to address. Kudo's! We arrived on time for our reservation and a table was ready and our server was friendly. Now to some concerns: The entry into this establishment is confusing as it is on the side street and there are multiple doors. A little extra signage would go a long way to correct. I don't know if they always seat two high-tops in the bar area but it felt like an afterthought and a way to maximize the number of covers for the evening but not necessarily the guests experience. Our plan had been to enjoy the 6 course menu - however @ $110/per and sitting at a wobbly table, with essentially no back to the chair and the extra service traffic at the bar we opted for the 3 course @$60. Appetizers were spot-on with fresh oysters and a creamy pate. Main course was only so-so with a bone-in fish and mystery cut of beef (that our server described as "not tough". Dessert included a sliver of cheesecake which was nice enough and a cheese plate (provided with no indication of what cheeses were being served). I hope they can do better with a little more focus both in the service area (some grumpy servers which I should never be aware of, no matter where I'm seated) and in the kitchen. Perhaps we will try again not on a holiday but now you've got sooooooo much more to prove.

We ate there the day after Christmas, there was hardly anyone in the restaurant. It's a small place in downtown Greensboro with high end, exquisite food. The decor is lacking for the price point, but the experience made up for it. Our server was extremely friendly and made the experience more enjoyable. It's a good restaurant for a special occasion.

We have eaten at Table 16 several times and always have had a good experience. However, this time the service was very good, but we were disappointed in our meals. The charcuterie platter was not anything special and the entrees were not much better. We will return in the future and hope that this experience was an aberration.

Very disappointed ...Owner/chef not there for chef tasting menu as in the past . Out of several premium bar items I.e. Crown and Bailys .
Service was sub par And sometimes server was not available when needed for a drink refills etc. Dining atmosphere just OK but nothing special . I was expecting a "dining experience "with a wonderful staff but was very disappointed. Might as well have had dinner at the Olive Garden... about the same atmosphere . But at least olive garden would've had crown and Bailys. Will not return .

When we arrived there were only 2 other couples seated and a large group at the bar. We only saw one waiter working and service was extreemly slow to say the least. I ordered the gumbo appetizer only to be told they didn't make it. They substituted a balsamic beef soup that was not that exciting. My girlfriend ordered the filet only to have the waiter return and tell us they would have to substitute a flank steak for the filet because they were out. I had the short ribs, they were dry. Overall not a great experience.

Friendly, attentive service; appealing daily specials complement the somewhat limited menu options. Good wine list with interesting by-the-glass options; ambitious craft cocktail suggestions were unexpected and very creative.

The food we ended up with was delicious!!! But.. 4 of the menu items were not available due to the seafood delivery not happening. I get it, it happens but we were not told until we tried to order. The server lacked tremendously here- it took forever to place our order. We order a cheese plate and no interaction or excitement to even describe what cheeses we had for the evening, nothing, nada... the food came out and you would have thought he was off to the races - he was no where to be found.
Hats off the the chef.

I have been a fan of this restaurant for several years, but it closed for a little while, and has now re-opened under new management and with a new chef. My latest visit was the first back after the re-opening and it was fantastic. The space has a low-key feel to it with the bar set off away from the dining room as before. The food was as good as ever (this is my favorite restaurant in Greensboro) which is what I wondered about the most for my first time back. I highly recommend trying the chef's tasting menu and wine pairings to get a good sense of what the new chef is all about. I was impressed and will be back. I'm glad to see Table 16 open again.

Our waiter wasn't very good. He said that they had something but they didn't . Also, the menu online was different than the menu we were given in the restaurant. The waiter said that anything could change at any minute; they were always "in flux." Finally, we asked for no bacon on our salads and we were given the salads with bacon.

I was a huge fan of table 16 with chef graham. The menu was detailed, described well by fresh local items. I recently went in to the restaurant for a business dinner. I have never been more disappointed. I couldn't find one thing on the menu I wanted to eat. I was embarrassed to take clients. The menu was not detailed . Example: pork chop. That's all it said. For the cost of dinner, It was astronomical. I felt guilty paying the price for food that I could have gotten at a local diner. The new owner was very kind, but annoying. Wanted us to know he was the new guy. The waiter was awful, he rolled his eye 3-5 at my questions on the menu due to a food allergy. I loved table 16, now I won't even think of going back there again.

under new management, food good, service very poor and unprofessional. When asked about the changes the server explained that the the former chef had left, and his sous chef had taken over but that he was not there (Saturday night) and that his sous chef was cooking. TMI
When someone ordered Steak Frites, it was explained that the meat was very tough but tasted good. Again TMI
Should have know when a 7:30 Saturday evening reservation was not an issue, when normally it would have been a challenge. Disappointed as this was a favorite go to restaurant but will probably not return.

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 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!
