A collaboration between Crate and Barrel and Cornerstone
Restaurant Group, with acclaimed Chef Bill Kim leading the
kitchen, The Table at Crate invites you in for casual modern
dining and a morning-to-evening menu filled with clever twists.

Our namesake table is a 13-foot maple stunner where you can
dine solo or with a crew—and check out chef demos, cookbook
dinners and more culinary events. Take in the scene on our two
outdoor patios, and, in the afternoon, experience our fun take
on teatime (think cupcakes and tea-infused cocktails). At lunch
and dinner, discover Chef Kim’s menu of fresh salads, tartines,
healthy bowls and entrees.

An experience that brings together the things we love
best—connecting people, creative food and timeless
design—The Table at Crate is our first full-service
restaurant. We can’t wait for you to join us.

The service was much too slow, no fault of the server. They were just understaffed. The food was mediocre to say the least. Much too high priced. Salad/Dinner/Cocktail $78 per person

Portions skimpy, including wine pours. Overcooked burger and poke with not much taste.

Not good value: expensive and not flavorful, small portion size. Beautiful and great contemporary concept, though.

We've made 5 visits and tried something new each time for entree! Food is excellent and great portion sizes. great flavors but feels healthy at the same time. Cocktails so refreshing and fun. good wine options too! Kids meals are not only fabulous tasting but such a good price....and even better when kids LOVE the food and want to return!

We were excited to check out this new location, but deeply disappointed. The customer service was great. However, the food was somewhat deplorable. When served chicken, we'd hope that it would be cooked. It wasn't. Food overall lacked quality. Drinks were average at best.

The food is mediocre at best. Our guess is it is preprepared and brought to site, then assembled. When we asked for bread, we were told “we don’t have any, only sourdough crostini”. The interior is beautiful but my guess is this place won’t last. There are too many other options that are fresh.

There's something for everybody on the menu- from meat eaters to vegans. Though the menu options were few, they were healthy and portions were generous. A little pricey for vegetarian dishes. Good coffee options. Desserts had two options, nothing eye catching.

Food was very good. Service is a bit slow. Over-charge for adding protein to a salad (double the price!).

Although it has a limited menu the food was good. We enjoyed their great outdoor seating. As the table has only been open for a few weeks I expect the service will improve as the staff gains experience.

Second time dining at Table at Crate & doesn’t disappoint! Delicious lunch w/beautifully executed salads & freshest ingredients. Lovely dining al fresco in a modern setting. Our server was excellent & personable, didn’t rush us. Can’t believe a gluten free cookie could taste so delicious too, wow! Inside, the restaurant is just as inviting with its warm modern ambiance. Great dining off of Crate’s incredible tabletop collection! Perfect compliment!

This is my 3rd time dining there. In the past I’ve had the salads, but this visit I had the lemon chicken and my husband had the cheeseburger. While good, I thought the lemon was almost non existent. His burger was delicious and the seasoning on the fries is fabulous. We enjoyed the crudités as an appetizer and found the presentation beautiful and very good flavor. The specialty drinks are very light on alcohol, but nicely blended

Saw the waiter once every 30 minutes and had to keep waving him down. Sat outside and around the corner which had no ambiance, no decorations on the table, just ick. Expected much more but I guess this is their first rodeo. After all, they are a furniture store and great at that!!

Great menu service and exceptionally good food. Pick your favorite or share with friends. Light meals with a great variety. You can shop before during or after. Eat at the restaurant inside or out, stop at the cafe ir the lounge upstairs. If you’re a Crate fan or not you will enjoy the experience. Don’t miss the dessert either!

Great lunch, food was excellent and atmosphere was also nice. Had a nice seat outside under a shaded porch. Great for people watching. Service was excellent, server seemed to know a lot about the menu and was able to explain all the dishes we inquired about. Ordered the chicken blt and was quite impressed with presentation and taste! Yummy!

We LOVE The Table at Crate. My husband and I went for a date lunch. Love the decor and layout of the tables, romantic and modern at the same time. I ordered the Chicken BLT Tartine-delicious and healthy. Loved being able to order a sandwich with only one slice of bread. Our waiter Francisco was helpful in explaining the menu and very gracious. The food looked like artwork and was so delicious. Of course we could not leave without dessert, ordered the banana split. Yummy with a great surprise, homemade banana bread with the bananas, ice cream, and warm chocolate syrup! Of course we also went up to check out the terrace after lunch, beautiful views and comfortable seating!!
