Enjoyable Dinners with other Singles
I've been to one dinner with a Table for Six in Sydney and enjoyed an evening of good food and good company with other singles who were interesting people. We had three men and two ladies in our early thirties to early forties. I think you need to have a flexible attitude. For me that meant travelling outside my area, which didn't bother me. No dates as such but an interesting evening. I look forward to the next dinner!
Glenelg Public House
I found the Glenelg Public House a very good venue for the table for six evening for the following reasons.
The menu was varied enough to cater for most tastes.
The portion sizes were also varied so that all apatite could be catered for.
Parking was really good which I think is very important as most of us drive to the event.
The construction of the building allowed the background noise to be minimal so therefore allowing normal conversation to take place.
The staff levels allowed quick service , which was done with a smile and a very professional manner.
The tables and furniture was very well laid out, allowing easy access
The whole venue presented as being very clean.
All in all very good .
Wonderful , ... from Nic
I went to my first dinner last weekend , it was so enjoyable . The restaurant that we met at had lovely food . It offers a less pressured way of dating . I look forward to my next dinner . I am impressed of how the dinners are organised , and communicating with the organiser is easy . I highly recommend.. A Table for 6 .
Back to basics meeting people...!
I've attended several dinners with AT46 and found it ideal to meet new people in a comfortable and fun way..
I like the specifics of age and compatibility, which is important, also the high calibre of members... I highly recommend AT46, thank you Margaret for your attentive service !
How I met my beautiful Partner
I've been with my partner Nicky for 3 1/2 years now, having met at a T 4 Six, Valentines function. I wasn't looking for a partner, just felt like company and I liked the socializing aspect of these functions. The dinners are good but I preferred moving around the room chatting to anyone who was up for it and I'm definitely not an extrovert. There was a good crowd this night and Nicky and I met late in the evening and hit it off.
I'm ten years older than Nicky, which didn't deter her and she has teenage kids, which didn't deter me. I'm so pleas...
After my friends told me that they met at A Table for Six dinner 3 years ago and I should give it a go. I was a bit unsure but thought what is the worst that can happen. I signed up in June and so far I have meet some lovely people and dined at some great restaurants in Brisbane that I didn't know about and would never have visited without these dinners. My experience with A Table for Six is very positive and I'm looking forward to my next dinner you never know who might be there. T male member
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.
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.
Questions & Answers
Hi T46 Rep
Can you tell me how I may join, the process and cost please .
Hi Nicky ,
I have been a member for 3 months , and I like ‘ A table for 6 ‘ .
The joining cost is $ 300 , but the organiser is flexible how you pay it . Usually there is a small fee to book to go to a dinner , $ 35. ,
I like the way the dinners are organised , they are either in the city , or not far from the city . I am going to a dinner tonight in Glebe.
The dinners are arranged in age ranges , 30 - 40 , 40 - 50 , 45 - 55 etc .
You receive a message the day before inviting you to a dinner .
I find the service organised with sensitivity and respect.
I have been to 2 dinners so far , and they have been very enjoyable .
I am looking forward to my dinner tonight with AT46.
I've been very interested in joining however the reviews are terrible ? Is this really true ?
Hi Linda. Yes I heard that also. But I have found that it was largely due to perhaps unfounded expectations. I would recommend that you contact Margaret and discuss your concerns with her direct.
Absolutely terrible Linda. Try City Swoon or elsewhere, that actually make an effort to match you with like minded people. AT46 tell you they do this at sign up time, but then once they have you cash, there is no effort, upon enquiring as to how they match people up together, I never received a response. It's a scam. Stay clear.
I have been to one dinner with Dinner for Six just before the COVID 19 shutdown and I found it a very positive experience where I had dinner with three interesting men and another lady. It was friendly and upbeat and low pressure. I think how you will feel about it will depend on your attitude. I was happy to travel to most parts of Sydney and was flexible and let Margaret know that when I spoke to her. I was also just happy to enjoy a nice dinner with other singles.
