Stone Gossard, from Seatle, WA
"The table and chairs looks great and are totally solid. Totally great online furniture shopping experience ., thank you NRD. Stone Gossard"
Marty Bell, from New York, NY
"Esther, We had the table assembled today and it's fabulous, even better that we ever hoped it would be -- we couldn't be more pleased!!!!
As you can now see, it's for a banquette in our kitchen. And as you may also be able to tell, it's a pretty high end kitchen, with Wolf stove, Subzero refrigerator, and marble backsplash -- while not your typical diner motif, the table fits in perfectly! - I hope you can see just how well the laminate on the top and sides of the table goes with the marble backsplash all around the kitchen. And the black feet blend perfectly with the black baseboard, while the chrome pedestal perfectly matches all of the chrome pulls on the cabinets!
We were originally considering a Caesar Stone table top to match the tops of the kitchen counters. But not only would that have cost almost ten times what the New Retro table cost, but because of the weight of Caesar stone, it would have required two pedestals which would have made seating in our small banquette very difficult, and would also have made moving the table very difficult which would have been a problem if we wanted to get to the drawers below the banquette seat.
The table is perfect. Thank you. And thanks again also for all of your help and guidance as we went through so many iterations before arriving at this particular size table and this pedestal and this laminate!!! You guys are the best, a real pleasure to deal with! "
Rebecca Boucher, from Denver, CO
"I purchased the yellow cracked ice booth in 2008. The customer service was exceptional! My husband and I (and guests) have spent many hours enjoying our booth and the ambiance it adds to our home. We get many comments on how fun and relaxed our loft is and everyone wants to sit in the booth and play the jukebox. Our loft is now on the market and we will consider selling all furnishings and accessories separately. I have no doubt we will be purchasing another booth for our new home. If there is any interest in the loft my email is email@example.com and I am located in Denver, CO."
Capt. Frank Lanier, from Chesapeake, Virginia
"Hello to you both, Earlier this year I purchased a booth and four custom bar stools for a new office / man cave I was building. You asked me to send some pics when it was all done, so here’s a link where you can view a video tour and pics of the finished product. As you can see it turned out great and the booth and bar stools are a big hit with everyone.
Thanks again for all your help! Frank"
Carla Yamashiro from Seattle, Washington
"Hi Esther - Sorry it took this long to send a pic! I love my table and it fits perfectly in the space. You and Jack were great, seeing everything through from beginning to end! It even arrived earlier than the estimated time!
Thank you and Jack so much! -Carla"
Laura Lombardo from Waterford, Michigan
"Well the chairs are here on time for my big ice fishing party tomorrow, thank you! Laura"
"Hi Jack, here are our stools in our kitchen. We love them. Our neighbors love them too. I gave them your website. So they can check you out. I almost ordered from another company, but when their swatches came, their colors were not what I was looking for. Thanks for the prompt delivery. Very satisfied. Laura Lombardo"
Rod Wade of the Caroline Terrace Pty. Ltd. from Queensland, Australia
"Dear Jack, We recently purchase some coke stools for our new retro café at 382 Tamborine Oxenford Road Upper Coomera Queensland Australia. We needed the stools pronto and your hands on approach saw them arrive on time. Thank you Jack and all your staff and those that kept me up to speed telling me exactly at which point in the manufacturing and dispatch they were. Thank you all at New Retro Dining. I will be back. Kind regards, Rod Wade"
Diane & Alex Hatcher from Pynn's Brook, NF Canada
"Hi Esther and Jack, we are very pleased with our new coke room. It has passed all of our expectations. We use the room a lot, and all of our guests ooh and awe on how wonderful it looks and ask who did it for us. I am sure we will enjoy it for years to come. Thank you guy very much, you will be hearing from us again."
Steve and Linda Hibbs from Kingsburg, California
"Received in great condition. Outstanding craftsmanship and top quality! We are really pleased and excited about it. Thanks for your help selecting the gloss black fabric, it really picks up the room. We are really liking this room with the your recommendations. Thanks a million!"
Sabrina Péray from Plan-les-Ouates, Switzerland
"We have received the chairs today, waouhh, they are so beautiful, we LOVE them !!!! What a nice job you did. Thanks again for your help and thanks to the whole team. Please find enclosed pictures of the chairs in our kitchen. "
Tim Onderdonk from Regent Associates, Inc. Westborough, MA, designer of Jimbo's Diner at the Bernardi Honda facility in Brockton, MA
"Regent Associates, Inc. designs many car dealerships and we were asked to design a retro 1950s style diner to be located in the main showroom of the brand new Bernardi Honda facility in Brockton, MA. After an extensive search for the appropriate furnishings, New Retro Dining proved to have just what our client had in mind. Jimbo’s Diner was a huge hit at the grand opening party and the retro booths, stools, counters and lighting fixtures make the diner really stand out. It was a fun project to be a part of and it was great working with New Retro Dining. "
Guy Lytle from The Universal Technical Institute (UTI), Sacramento California Campus
"New Retro Dining was a pleasure to work with. They were eager to please and were quick to respond to my requests. They exceeded my expectations, the quality is top notch, and delivered ahead of schedule."
Don Presnell from Rubbermaid Commercial Products (RCP), Winchester, Virginia
"You have great product at a reasonable price- can’t wait to see it in our Pottsville lunch rooms! The employees here at RCP Winchester LOVE the chairs and tables and light fixtures. The change in décor to “retro” has really boosted spirits here, and people are really enjoying the use of our Vendeteria. I’m enclosing some pictures of the Winchester Vendeteria for you to have. You may use them if you wish! "
Mal Youngblood at the Trinity Financial Partners, Ontario, California

Eleanor Ragusa, Suffern, NY
"Dear Liz and Elayne, I am very pleased to send this testimonial. I couldn't have had a more positive or more pleasant experience working with any other company anywhere. You both have been so wonderfully patient and instrumental walking me through every aspect of the ordering process from quickly mailing me samples to addressing any questions or concerns I had. On delivery, when I opened the boxes with my new table and chairs, I was elated! They exceeded my expectations. The quality and workmanship is unsurpassed, and "made in the U.S.A." is a definite plus. Being able to order the size I needed to fit in my small kitchen was key. Everything fits perfectly and I couldn't be happier. Thank you, thank you, thank you for all you've done. I am an extremely satisfied customer! Sincerely, Eleanor Ragusa "
Todd & Missy Steward, Elizabeth City, NC
"We love the quality of the furniture and the fact that it is U.S. made. The customer service and quality of the product far exceeded our expectations. The wide range of colors to chose from made this so fun. We know it is unique to our home. I love the fact that we can call/email and a representative replies the same day...sometimes, within minutes! We love everything about it EXCEPT that it isn’t bigger! :) And that is another great thing about your company, I can call and order a replacement table top at any time to fit our household needs. Thanks again!"
The Ronald Ellsworth Family, Ballston Spa, NY
"It's been over a year since we received our new table and chairs from you. We are very happy with them and they are a great addition to our new kitchen. I'm sorry it has taken us so long to get back to you with a picture. Hope business is great, we will certainly refer friends to you whenever we get the chance."
John Janish, ExpoDesign, Bartlett, IL
"Thanks for making the extra effort to get us our bar stools in time for holiday entertaining on such short notice (especially, after our other retro furniture source dropped the ball). The stools are the perfect compliment to our bar and back bar, and really finish off the look of our basement game room quite nicely."
Rick Sessinghaus, Burbank, CA
"The table and chairs from NewRetroDining added the perfect finishing touch to my recently renovated kitchen. My guests all say that the dinette set makes the kitchen "pop" and my grand children love to sit and have snacks. Thank you so much for everything."
Ryan McAdams, Lighthouse Custard, LLC, Tulsa, OK
"The chairs and tables from New Retro Dining look great and have proven to be of great quality over our first year. They really give us the 50's dinner/ice cream shop look that we wanted. Attached are some photos to give you an idea of how they show along with the rest of the store. Please feel free to contact me at any time if you would like to use our shop to promote the product or if anyone is looking to highlight classic style ice cream and burger shops."
Kathy Norman, Punta Gorda, FL
"We love them! Your chairs are the perfect match to Grandma's table. Thanks so much - The Normans"

Barton Mills, Partner, Back Lot Productions, Inc., Atlanta, GA
"My company designs retail stores and hotels. New Retro was one of the best vendors I've ever worked with, friendly, efficient, and professional. It was a pleasure working with your company. The quality of the craftsmanship was first class. Hopefully I can involve you in some of our commercial projects."
Linda Sanders, Coconut Creek, FL
"Just wanted to thank you. We received our chairs and are truly pleased! They are not only very well made, but go perfectly with the motif in our family room. We had an original 50's table from when my husband was younger and we've been searching for the perfect chairs to go with it. We certainly found them! We had so many compliments over the holidays. When people saw them, they just thought they were the cutest thing! Thank you. I would highly recommend you to anyone looking to liven up any space!"
Sam Khoruri, Somer's Diner, West Lake, OH
"It was a great experience. Everyone was responsive and professional. Attached are picture of the diner."
Harriet Epstein, Tallahassee, FL
"We love our table and chairs. They fit in perfect with our renovated kitchen. Your company did a wonderful job. Easy to order and delivery was right on time. It was exactly what we expected. High quality and well constructed. I would definitely recommend to others. I have attached a couple of pictures. Thanks, Harriet"
Mary Kott, Auxiliary of California Lutheran Home, Burbank, CA
"I recently purchased a custom table and chairs for the convenience store at our senior retirement community. Everything is beautiful, and of great quality. The chairs are comfortable for everyone, which is important for our seniors. The table is accessible to all because it is wheelchair height. I couldn’t be happier with the way everything turned out, and your customer service and attention are remarkable. Everything came ahead of promise and in perfect condition, which was a thrill. I’m sending a photo which was taken before we merchandised, but you can imagine how great the furniture looks now that the store is in business. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart."
Candy Sheppard, Houston, TX
"My project was to renovate my kitchen into a 50's style diner. The table was one of the finishing touches to go with my booth. You did a great job on getting the table to me."
Theresa Armstrong, Rensseler, NY
"Thanks Elayne! It was a huge job, and seven months of craziness, but we’re very happy. Jim and I can’t say enough good things about the builder and his crew, they were phenomenal. And, they all went nuts when they saw the kitchen furniture! I don’t who was more excited about seeing it all put together, us or the guys on the construction crew. It was quite the experience. I thought you might appreciate seeing how great the booth furniture and color combo look in our new kitchen. The builder that did our home remodel was so impressed he chose our new kitchen and bath for a photo spread featured in an industry publication to accompany an article about him and his business. I’ve included the article as it appeared in the magazine for you to see how great it looks."
Hayley Neal, N. Bethesda, Maryland
"Kelly, I just wanted to give you some feedback by way of a big 'thank you' for the whole experience which has been my purchase of the dinette table. Everyone I dealt with from the point of ordering through you, then both the freight company over the phone and delivery staff in person were of genuine help and I think it's very important that this be recognized when it's definitely not always the case generally. While I'm yet to actually assemble my table this coming weekend, I can tell you that it's exactly what I had hoped for, and I appreciate that it was obviously worked on and packed with care. Once again, I thank you and your business partners very much for the good vibes I'll always be able to enjoy when I take a seat at my table. Cheers! Hayley "
Dayle Dolginer, Los Angeles, California
"I am a new recipient of a fabulous breakfast room table and chairs! When ordering over the internet one never really knows what quality merchandise you'll be getting or whether the actual item will resemble the photo on the web. I am overjoyed with my new table and chairs and tell you that the product was so accurately represented on the web and the people I dealt with over the phone were so professional, kind, cooperative, helpful and so accommodating with samples and decisions that I compliment them to the fullest! I recommend this company highly and without hesitation!!"
Rose Hitz, Lincoln, Nebraska
"I will sing a different song this morning. I must admit I was a bit nervous yesterday when shipment seemed to be so delayed and no communication. Haven't had any trouble with my yahoo account but who knows. Doing business on line is totally new to me and I must say I've heard a few horror stories so this added to my anticipation. The set arrived yesterday afternoon and by evening it was all set up gracing my kitchen. It is beautiful and everything I wanted in my small kitchen. Quality is excellent, color good so it fits in very striking. THANK YOU! Warm wishes to your company in 2007.
(One happy customer in Lincoln, Nebraska)."
Gary Head, Soddy Daisy, Tennessee
"As you can see from the photos I have recently remodeled my kitchen 50's style, complete with the stove that my grandfather bought in 1954! I was very happy to have found your web site and exactly the dining set I was looking for. I've had it now about a week and love it! It is extremely well made and the chairs are very comfortable. It is certainly high quality, actually to be honest, it is far better than I expected!! Everyone that sees it just can't say enough about the dining set. Thank you again for excellent service, product and making my kitchen and dining area a true step back in time!!"
Matt Shoemaker, Rolling Meadows, Illinois
"I am sorry this is coming so late, but it has been a slow, but fun process to get everything installed and set up. The pictures were taken last week and already things have changed quite a bit. The brown cabinet which contained the soda fountain glasses is now gone because I got 2 retro looking cabinets to hold them. Then cabinets are 30” high located against the wall to the left of the soda fountain. I needed to wait to take the pictures at least until the foot rest was completed by a friend of mine. To match the floor he covered it with extra floor tiles that I had. I just finished painting the back and 2 sides of the fountain Aluminum, so now they blend in very well with the rest of the send them to you when it was finished because who knows when that will be… I want to thank you for all of your help. You were such a huge help and it turned out fantastic. Also, please thank the rest of the staff that helped me. Everyone has been so helpful to me. I am writing a letter to American Soda Fountain to let them know about how fantastic you have been, so hopefully, you will get more business. Thank you so much for everything."
Loretta W., Hartford, Wisconsin
"I just wanted to let you know we received the VirrVarr finish Bow End Extension table that we ordered from you. We ordered on the 8th of February and received the table almost a month before we were slated to get delivery. Fantastic! Very excellent table, we really like it. We are really happy with your service, your product, and also the delivery person was very nice. Thanks again, we'd highly recommend your company!"
Denise Leach, Troy, Michigan
"We love our new chairs. I called your customer contact number for information about the fabrics offered and received a package of samples within a week . This was my first furniture purchase on the internet and I was nervous. I placed my order and my chairs were delivered earlier than promised. Our experience with your company has been positive in everyway. I am attaching some pictures taken at Christmas. Thank you."
William Martindale, Ridgecrest, California
"Sorry that it has taken so long to get back to you, but I was hoping that I could get our game room finished before sending any pictures. I have had a hard time finding my Coke machine and juke box; but this will give you an idea of what we are doing. Have a wonderful Christmas."
Mark Breeden, Escondido, California
"Now that I have received my table and chairs, I would like to share a few photos. Thanks again."
Deneen Grove, Port Republic, New Jersey
"We absolutely love our new booth. We got the benches in Tropic Sky and White Often Naugahyde, and the table in Coral Boomerang, and it looks awesome, so funky. We also got a rolling chair in yellow and white, very cool. Every single person who has seen our new furniture is blown away. It is well-made and gorgeous and we are more than satisfied. I will take a picture as soon as I can and send it so you can see how great it all looks. Thanks so much! "
Tom Wetli, Defiance, Ohio
"Rachel, this table went into service December 31'st, 2005. It was a Christmas gift for my daughter and her family to use in their new home. They have a diner-style Coca Cola kitchen. It came through shipping in great shape, and she loves it. Attached are a couple of photos. Thanks for all your help."
Sue Ann Charles, Pittsburgh, PA

"Working for Voice of Evangelism is such a blessing. We have allot of fun and we love to get together and eat for parties and for "just because" days. We love the Retro/Happy Days theme, so we went looking for tables and chairs that would accommodate us and make it a pleasant place to enjoy our lunch time and party times. We were so glad when we saw the web page for New Retro Dining and all that it offered for us. We did not hesitate to call and place our order. We had wonderful service and a great experience speaking with those who helped walk us through the ordering.

Thanks for making our lunch time and party times a fun place to hang out. Blessings! Voice of Evangelism Staff"

Dr. Jim Collins, Russellville, AR
"My turquoise-and-white dinette and bar stools came in perfect condition. I had been a little concerned on how it would be shipped and would it be hard to assemble. No problem at all. I can't believe how COOL this furniture looks in my new house. All my friends who see it have a story of THEIR dinette when they were children. It's an immediate conversation piece! I would not hesitate to order something else. Jack was very friendly on the phone and helped me to get just what I was looking for. THANKS!"
Audrey Whiteside, Kirkwood, PA
"Elayne, I am so happy with the table and chairs, they are perfect. I never saw a retro table and chairs so beautiful. The freight driver opened the boxes for me and took out one of the chairs and said they are beautiful. He had to know where I got them. So guess what? Everyone is anxious to see it and I'm sure they will want to know too. Thank you so much. I will forward your web site."
Greg Risco, Cincinnati, OH
"Received chairs and could not be more pleased. Thank you"
Ms. D. G., Naples, FL
"Dear Jack, Thank you so much for the beautiful job that you did on my set. It's something that I've always wanted, but I've never seen one that could live up to the one that I grew up around in my great-grandmother's house, until now. The table & chairs are beautiful, very comfortable, well-made, and are the perfect complement to my ultra-modern kitchen. Everyone loves it, and it is definitely the focal point of my whole house, let alone the kitchen. Thank you so much, and I'm sure that more orders will be coming your way from some of my friends & family. They are all in love...In addition to this, you guys are a pleasure to deal with. Thank you."
Joyce Lindsley, Suamico, WI

We were pleased with the quality of the product and workmanship. We will be sure to tell everyone where we purchased it. Thank you."
Amber Rach, Raeford, NC
" Thank you so much for the excellent and attentive service and, of course, the incredible dinette set! My husband and I absolutely love it.
