I'd rather have my own table but it wouldn't bother me if I had to do this.

If I'm by myself I don't mind a communal table but if I'm with a group I prefer our own table.

Unless it's a special occasion yadda yadda then I wouldn't mind! Food brings people together after all. :)

Depends on the situation. I wouldn't mind sitting at the table above by myself or with a few friends, but if it was a more formal dinner I'd like my party to have our own table.

My thoughts exactly Spectra- I pay to eat at my own table!

Not unless I'm in a setting like a family reunion or a church picnic where all the tables are huge and everyone's eating together. At a real restaurant, I pay to be able to eat at my own table.

I don't go out of my way to find communal table restaurants, but if its not too insane when I wander in some place, it's ok

I am so over communal tables, but if the restaurant is really crowded and popular and the wait is long, then yes, I will sit at the communal.

I don't mind this, but I rarely find myself engaging in convos with strangers because I'm at a communal table.
