Fine Dining Restaurant Furniture
Fine dining is about providing particularly memorable eating experiences, with all aspects of the customer visit being carefully managed.
Fine dining restaurant furniture tends to reflect the extra care put into the food, with extra care taken on the details of chairs and tables. Upholstery might have extra stitching, fluting or button details; chair legs might have brass feet. Fine dining table tops are more likely to be of more expensive marbles, or perhaps well-finished wooden tops with detailing such as inlays and metal edging.
As a result of this extra attention to detail, fine dining furniture tends to be more expensive than normal restaurant furniture; items are also more likely to be bespoke, created for the restaurant.

The right table size depends on how many covers are required on each table and what the table is used for; fine dining or drinking will differ. Drinking requires less space than quick meals; fine dining requires the most space. To calculate how many covers will fit in a restaurant use this diagram.
Table base heights are often decided after a seat is selected. If you want the diner's legs to fit under the table you must leave 250-300mm of space between the top of the chair seat and the bottom of the table top. Get the correct measurements for dining, counter & poseur heights with this diagram
