Gone downhill, now a scam
Concept great, did this a couple of years ago. Upon returning two years later completely gone downhill. There is no attempt to properly match with like people, just for you to fill numbers so they can charge you a fee to go to dinner, on top of the one off exoribant fee. Stay away!
Fabulous concept and opportunity
I decided, that at 57, it was time to think about doing something for myself and look for someone to spend some valuable time with. This was very difficult and challenging. I certainly did NOT want to join the whole internet dating concept. To my absolute joy, I found Table for Six.
What a fantastic concept this is. Each Dinner is a great opportunity to meet like minded individuals, in the same stage of life, just looking for great company and perhaps someone to spend more time with.
Each dinner is totally different - but totally enjoyable....Given we are all there for the same reason, everyone contributes to the conversation and we have certainly discussed some interesting topics. The conversations are generally animated, spirited at times, and humorous. Some people expect to find the "perfect" person at the first dinner. Whilst this might occur, it should not be the expectation. Just go and enjoy the occasion - meet new people, try new restaurants, and participate in great conversation. Oh, and the food is generally excellent. I look forward to my next dinner with a Table For Six - and who knows where that might lead! Thanks again AT46 Female Member
I joined in October 2018 - 11 months ago and haven’t been on one dinner. I put my name down for a few but got no response. I received an invite (not to the dinner but a request to be considered for the dinner) early on but I was away on business that weekend. I asked them to send me details of any upcoming dinners that would be suitable but....nothing. And now 11 months after parting with my annual subscription fee.....I finally received an email yesterday asking me to request to be considered for a dinner in the Inner West (I’m on the Northern...Beaches) saying that this was the perfect dinner for me. I check the website to find out more and find out that it’s for ages 30-40. I’m 46. So disappointing. I’ve waited 11 months and they can’t even get me along to a dinner North of the Harbour Bridge or in my age group. Avoid this company like the plague. They are interested in your membership fee and that is all. The service is a sham. You have been warned...
Scam, waste of time and money
This is a scam and waste of money. There was no option to pay by the month only paying for a year - $299. I did not get to use the service because they did not organise any events and when they did I had to keep contacting them to see if I was able to go to organise my life around it but found out it was cancelled when they eventually got back to me. They would not give me a refund - even half - saying there was an apparent cooling off period but how can you make a decision and cancel without giving some time to organise an event? Don’t use this service. I had to give one star as it wouldn’t allow me not to put anything. 0 stars.
Great night Christmas in July
Went along on Saturday night 20 July 2019 to Story Bridge for the Christmas in July Cocktail Evening, lots of new people. I had a very nice night meeting and enjoying the company of other people in similar situation to myself. The venue is just so easy to get to the staff are pleasant, food was the highlight lots of it served cold and hot finger food prawns, club sandwich, mini shepherd pies and what about the meal in a bucket Italian or Beef. and other finger food that I think I missed because I was so full. No one could possibly be hungry wit...h all the great food that was served. At the conclusion of our evening at AT46 we all or most of us went to the lower bar to enjoy the music and dancing and of course a few cold drinks. I will without a doubt go to more of these Cocktail Gatherings when they are on. Thanks to Rhyllie I and my new found friends had a fantastic night. September 17th 2019 Update: I have been to several dinners and I have had both good and not so good experiences, always manage to make conversation with someone or several others. This last dinner has confirmed my views that this is a great way to meet people both male and female. Dinner was excellent the service was prompt and friendly, Ambience of the restaurant beautiful and soft background music. A couple of the diners including myself have hooked up for further outings, " I was told they have gone very well" my meet up was very nice enjoyed a lunch by the beach. We all have arranged for a catch up prior to this weeks Cocktail Party at the Story Bridge Hotel. All six of us will be having drinks from 6pm we might see you there. Rhyllie thank you for arranging the dinners I know you must be frustrated at times with people pulling out at last minute just want to say it's their loss and keep up the great work. See you Saturday night for the Cocktail Party.
Not what it’s made out to be
I only rate AT46 one star because that is the lowest I can rate it A table for six offers the chance to meet off line. Well first off despite registering for most dinners in my age bracket I was lucky to get invited to one a month Sometimes I fitted into more than one age group And despite registering for three dinners on one night still didn’t get an invite. The final straw came when after being told there were no more booking fees they suddenly decided to reintroduce booking fees without informing me. I have had a few enjoyable evenings with AT46 but the experience definitely did not live up to expectations based on their advertising. All in all a big disappointment
I highly recommend anyone who is unsure about joining AT46 to put aside their feelings of trepidation and just do it. The feelings of anxiety and embarrassment, before the initial dinner I attended, melted away as soon as I began conversing with the lovely dinner guests. The quality of the AT46 members I have found to be very impressive. They are articulate, interesting and genuinely looking for a partner. I also felt reassured because they had all been ‘screened’ by Rhyllie and so there was a level of accountability to enter the process wi...th an authentic predisposition. Rhyllie has not only impeccably matched me with worthwhile dinner partners but has also shown a genuine interest in my relationships after each dinner event. Her restaurants are carefully chosen and I have frequented many of them after my AT46 dinners. The staff at every restaurant catered for my food allergy when I called in advance, with two of the restaurants revealing that staff had been brought into work early specifically to cater for my needs. The costs involved are very affordable however in my opinion you can’t put a price on finding your lifetime partner. I don’t know why anyone would waste time prevaricating and miss out on someone special at AT46.
Best way to spend a Saturday night!
I'm a single female, in the 45 - 55 age range from Sydney. I have spent the last 10 years raising my son, now completing his HSC, then off to Uni, and recently completing another BA myself. After studying for 7 years, and being out of the dating game, I felt a table for six would be the best way to ease into dating and meeting people. With six people, I knew the conversation would flow, I would be supported by fellow females, and if I didn’t meet that special someone, I would be getting out of my comfort zone and meeting like minded people. My...expectations were met and then surpassed. I have met so many interesting, fun, smart, witty people, with such interesting backgrounds, life stories, and experiences. The meals were delicious, the company entertaining, warm, professional, friendly and fun. Not a silent moment or straining for conversation (and such a wide variety of topics we’ve discussed). Such an enjoyable way to spend a Saturday night, this has been the boost I’ve needed, and each event a night well spent. I’ve sincerely enjoyed this experience, and its inspired and delighted me every step of the way. I even think my married friends are envious they are missing such a brilliant experience. Thank you so much for some very memorable and uplifting evenings. All members were amazing, delightful people, that I feel privileged to have met, shared my time and dined with.
DON'T DO IT!!!!
I believe the basic problem here is that there is not enough men interested in joining AT46. I can only comment on my age bracket (50-60yo).
It is meant to be different people at each event so you get to meet NEW people. The last dinner I went to, 2 of the 3 men that were at the dinner had been to the previous dinner I attended (2 weeks ago). The unfortunate part was one of the men had sent me his number via AT46 to pursue things which I declined.
It was VERY awkward for both of us as we had to sit next to each other at the end of the table ...
I'm glad I found A Table for Six, we're lucky to have this. I only go once a month or so because you can meet up again with people you've met. So far I've met some nice ladies they seem to match you up quite well. Next weekend it's a bike ride up the mountain and out west of Brisbane. She's maybe early 50s I guess but I'm no spring chicken I'm 59. The money side doesn't worry me, I like it for the people.
Money for nothing
I wish I had read the reviews before parting with my hard earned money. I joined up & got invited to one dinner (Not one I requested to go to). One man was there to make up the numbers, the other two were considerably older than me. Since then, despite putting in over 8 expressions of interest to attend a dinner, I did not receive an invite to any of them. I then got an offer on a night I had shown no interest in & was unable to attend. Once putting in an expression of interest, you have to wait to see if you get an invite, which is usuall...y issued 48hrs before the dinner. Plays total havoc with trying to organise your own social life. You put many EOI in for the month, hoping to get a least one invite, which rarely happens. Despite advertising 2-3 dinners per week in my age group, you never know if they have filled up or just not gone ahead. They tell you you can turn down dinners if unable to attend, but that is not what you pay for. AT46 never answered direct questions regarding the size of the pool of men & women in my age group. I can only agree with all the other reviews & say BEWARE.
Biggest scam ripping off innocent singke people which a current affair should investigate
The week I joined I got accepted to one dinner where only one guy turned up. Then nothing. I applied for 2 dinners per week that month. The next month I applied for 7 dinners in one month and wasn't invited to one dinner. So effectively I paid $120 to go to one dinner where only one guy turned up. When I requested a refund since they failed to uphold their end of the contract and provide one dinner a month they refused to respond to my numerous emails or text messages. They also expect you to wait until Friday morning in anticipation of an ema...il telling you that you are going to dinner that Saturday. Upon reading everyone elses reviews it appears that I wasn't the only person ripped off. Try Encounter Dating or City Swoon instead. When you buy the ticket you know that you are going out for sure. And if they don't get enough people they actually give you a credit for another event. These are legitimate companies. Table for six is a scam company and the sooner a program like channel 9s A Current Affair or 60 minutes exposes them for the frauds they are the better. I was forced to give a rating to submit this review so had to give 1 which says it is terrible
Wonderful opportunity to meet people
Thank you to Margaret and her team for carefully planning and arranging well thought out groups of people who come together as strangers and leave as friends. I have attended a couple of dinners and each dinner has provided me with the opportunity to get to know people in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. The restaurants are always great quality and the company even better!
Great way to make new friends whilst looking for a mate
I was a bit sceptical at first but i am so happy i joined a few months ago. It is so much better than a dating website where you are lucky to actually meet a potential partner at all. In a few months i have been invited to 4 dinner parties and attended 3. It is such a relaxed way to meet people without the usual awkwardness of a one on one with a stranger where you dont feel any attraction. With 6 to 8 persons attending, i have made some great friends both male and female. This is just the best way to look for a potential partner.
Enjoyable dinner, enjoyable conversation
I had a nice time at my very first Table for Six dinner last Saturday night.
The conversation was good and the food was nice. It was not the best Italian meal I've ever had but it was hot, the service time was efficient and the waiter was very polite and professional. There was not a lot of ambience at the restaurant as we were the only table in the restaurant for most of the night. The plus was that we didn't need to worry about laughing loudly. The restaurant was very quiet but I guess that is to be expected as the venue was the restaurant...of a motel which I'm sure would be much busier mid-week with corporate travelers as opposed to Saturday nights. I enjoyed a very sociable evening in a safe and friendly environment. I'll definitely be signing up for another.
Great night on the town
Last Saturday evening I was invited to dine at an exclusive restaurant in the city with some like minded Sydney siders. The group had immediate rapport as we shared great conversation delicious Italian cuisine & a some select wine. The night flew by and while some of our party headed home after dinner a few of us headed out for a night cap & dancing. The company was most enjoyable. We dined and chatted in a relaxed safe environment and I hope to catch up with at least one of our party again the near future. My faith in dinner parties with complete strangers has been restored. Thank you Margaret for a great night on the town. Looking forward to the next table for six outing.
Be positive and you will have a positive experience! Megan Brisbane
I am new to BRISBANE and found A Table for Six excellent for experiencing great restaurants in different suburbs and meeting new people. I have had 2 gentlemen express interest in meeting again and had lunch with one nice gentleman. I have been to at least 6 dinners and had some very pleasant evenings. Get out and be positive and you’ll have a good time !
Very very very ordinary!!!!
After paying for two months and requesting to attend a dinner every week for that time, I was invited to ZERO DINNERS! This experience was terrible. I did request a refund for giving them money for "NOTHING". I have received one response saying they would prioritise me that week, and surprise, surprise - Nothing happened! I sent a further email requesting a refund. No response again! I cancelled my membership today and have lost in total $120 down the drain! after they have taken another $35 out of my account. A SCAM! A waste of money! both I expect.

Questions & Answers
I've been very interested in joining however the reviews are terrible ? Is this really true ?
I have been to a few events with A Table for Six so far I have enjoyed myself and have met some lovely members. Question (1) What is your selection process for dinner membership?
(2) How does everyone avoid the trolls who write such awful reviews?
The trolls wouldn’t write such awful reviews if they got the opportunity to go out for dinner which is what they pay their membership for. Dinner with other diners is lovely, that is not the issue. The issue is paying membership to be included in dinners, which often doesn’t happen.
Totally agree with you Lois. I find it impossible to get invites to dinners and it’s frustrating and I feel ripped off. Constantly being overlooked when I know others are successful is soul destroying and it was a lot of money I spent for virtually zilch. The excuses are always the same. If there is a shortage of men stop taking innocent women’s money.
Table for six do you think you have met your monthly contractual obligation if a person applies for two dinners per week and gets invited to no dinners that month which is my experience with you.
