Of course, if you have been following my previous reviews keenly, you must have noticed that I am a sucker for glass products. From glass coffee mugs to Collins glasses and Highball glasses, I have a collection of each. In the previous review, I talked about glass bowls and gave a list of the top ones. In this article, I will take you through some of the top dining tables on the market.
One thing; I am a tad skeptical when purchasing glass dining tables and as such; I place my orders with a pinch of salt. This is because I have seen some of my friends get disappointed after buying inferior glass dining tables. I am one person who doesn’t gamble with cash. In fact, I only place orders when I am certain that what I am about to purchase is worth every penny and dime.

#8 Monarch Specialties Chrome Metal Tempered Glass Dining Table
By: Monarch Specialties
This is one of the best glass dining tables on the market. This was like my first purchase. I paired it with the Baxton ivory leather chairs and the outcome is simply hilarious. The ease with which I was able to set up this glass dining table is ridiculous. It only took a few minutes of twitching tweaking and everything was ready for use. I am heavily built; perhaps that’s the reason I didn’t need assistance. My wife kept staring at a distance in case I needed her hand fixing it up but that moment never arose. I have a daughter and a son so four seats were perfect for us.
In case you aren’t heavy-built like me, I suggest you get someone else to help you lift the 50 lbs parallel to your waist height. Something else, when setting up, I would advise that you leave most of the plastics on its legs and only make a hole at the two connection points during installation. I noticed that the chrome somehow flakes during installation but leaving the plastic on helped minimize the flaking. I loved the clean and attractive finish but I was a tad displeased by the flaking chrome.

Last year on Christmas, I decided to surprise my mom with this glass dining table. I waited till it was like a few days to Christmas and then I placed my order. Okay, it’s not like I am the last minute rusher! The point was; I knew my daughter would tell her grandmother about it and I wanted the table to come like a surprise.
One day to Christmas, this glass dining table arrived. It arrived on time and the setup process took me a few minutes. I live in the same estate as my mom although our houses are separated by a driveway. I didn’t see the need for me to go set it up in her house when I could just fix it and carry it over to her place or just toss it in the back seat of my car and drive it over. The table was sturdy and the look is simply great. It’s like six months down the line and it looks good as new. And yes, it’s perfect for her small dining room.

My neighbor came over to my place a few days to get my two cents on the best gift he could get for his wife on their 20th anniversary. I gave it a thought and, after a while, suggested a glass dining table. “Puzzle solved!” that was what he said as he thanked me on his way out.
Yesterday, he called me to go help him fix his new purchase and I couldn’t wait to see what he had bought. And yes, this was the glass dining table he had purchased. I was immediately struck by its beautiful and stylish design the moment I stepped foot into his house. The base was extremely easy to assemble and although my neighbor wouldn’t let me do it all by myself, I am certain that I wouldn’t mind setting up alone.
It took us about 5 minutes to assemble it which was considerably quick compared to several other glass dining tables I had come across. I loved several other things about this table including the sturdy base and its affordable pricing. This table packs a big punch even with its small and space-saving design.
#5 Southern Enterprises Lucianna Glass Top Dining Table
By: Southern Enterprises
When Jessie (My wife’s best friend) visited our home a few days ago, she couldn’t hold her amazement at how attractive our dining room looked. She loved the Monarch Specialties’ glass dining table matched up with the Baxton leather seats such that she asked me to help her out. I grabbed my iPhone and in a few seconds, we were already perusing some of the best glass tables on Amazon.
Her attention was caught by this Southern Enterprises’ glass table. She wanted it because there was an option for its matching chairs. She couldn’t wait for the arrival and after four days, she was already calling me and my wife to go help her assemble her table. We drove over to her place and found her ready with a wrench, screwdriver, spanner, hammer and every other tool one could think of. Actually, we didn’t use any of those tools!
The set came with everything required for assembling like the Allen wrench and a Philips screwdriver. In about 30 minutes, we were done with the table and all the seats. I love how the bolts offered added comfort and ensured that the entire collection was sturdy> I had previously used a table which kept wobbling like a chameleon on a frail twig and the experience was extremely disappointing. However, with this set, that wasn’t a thing to worry about.
#4 Monarch Tempered Glass Dining Table
Jessie’s friend also wanted a glass table and they contacted me once more for assistance. Okay, they know I love glass products like glasses, mugs, and bowls. However, I think I was slowly turning into a glass table technician in my neighborhood. I mean, everyone seemed to trust me like I was an expert in glass dining tables (Not that I mind at all!).
This time I checked out all available options and ordered this one on her behalf. This table was sturdy and extremely durable. It arrived after a few days packaged in tow boxes. I decided to assemble it at my place and then drive it over to Jessie’s place where he friend would come and pick it. The tempered glass was extremely thick and I was even reconsidering ordering this model for my home as well. It featured a thick hardwood base as well. In a jiffy, everything was on point.
#3 Round Glass Table Top Custom Annealed Clear Tempered 1/4″ Thick Glass
After making those few deliveries in my neighborhood, I decided to be the official supplier of glass dining tables. I mean, it was already becoming like a business and I had to open my eyes and grab the opportunity. I decided to order like three tables and store them at home just in case I had more clients. And yes, more clients kept coming over while others called to give me directions.
Of course, this time I had to get some commission for everything. This was one of the glass tables I ordered for resale. It didn’t even take an hour after I sold the picture to a few clients who had requested to see what I had. Like; I was torn between who to sell it to and who to leave out. I decided to give it to my long-term friend John. He couldn’t hide his joy. I loved its sturdy construction and easy installation. The price was also quite affordable.

After failing the other guys who have been making endless calls asking for a dining table, I ordered this one and in a few days, it was ready. I ordered several just in case clients became too many. There’re several things I loved about it. First, it boasts an extremely sturdy construction and the assembling process took minutes. I decided to match it with four leather chairs I purchased locally and the set was ready to give me a huge income.
#1 VECELO Dining Table with 4 Chairs – Silver
I bought this glass dining table to replace my Monarch Specialties’ dining table. I didn’t like the fact that the Monarch model was flaking a little and I wanted to change it for something better.
Of course, I didn’t have issues assembling the four tables and it took me like one hour to get all of them together. I loved the tempered glass top which is strong, sturdy and attractive. And yes, I also loved the reliable structure.
