WASTE OF MONEY. This service is a SCAM. Everything that was told to me when I signed up with the sales person was a lie, that I could have dinners, events and matches every month, SEVERAL times a month is FALSE. . If you are a women dont bother joining. There are no men and the ones that are there have been in the club forever. I would not recommend this to anyone, you are better off joining match or eharmony. A waste of money ( thousands of dollars) and a waste of time and effort. BUYER BEWARE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

JULIE PAIVA @ TABLE 4 6 ANSWERS HER PHONE...WELL, SORT OF!.
As the best friend of a Table For Six VICTIM, I decided to do some armchair P.I. work: I Googled these scammers and got the SF office ph #. I called and got a VM message, then couldn't leave a message because the box was full (shocker!). Since I'm all too familiar with the in's& out's of navigating VM systems I decided to "reach another mailbox" by punching in a last name: PAIVA to be exact! And guess what? The VM system responded "Julie Paiva" (the founder of this terrible business) and put me through to the extension. The voice on the other end answered: "Hello...this is Julie". AWESOME! The first words out of my mouth were "is this Table for SIX?", and she said, "...uh, just one moment". A 30-sec pause and then another "Julie" (not sure if was still her) came on the line. I flat out asked, "did TFS go bankrupt?", and "Julie" said, "oh no, no ,no -- we've just completed a restructuring", and "we sent out emails 2 wks ago to your member log-in page", and "actually TODAY 1/30/09 we're emailing everyone to say THANKS for your patience", and "we're giving ALL MEMBERS AN ADDITIONAL 3 MO's FREE", and then some other carefully crafted-by-her-PR-people one-liners!!!
If you were scammed by these awful people, call the SAN FRAN OFFICE PH # 415-782-0680, GET THE VOICEMAIL SYSTEM, AND DIAL-BY-NAME SPELLING OUT P-A-I-V-A...and you'll get her extension. See if she tells you the same story as she did me! I think it's absolutely unthinkable to run a business the way they did - & possibly are still operational - by charging tons-o-$$$, giving NO services, and fixing people up with the exact opposite of what the customers requested. They lie about where the events, the get-togethers are an additional cost (on top of the $3K + member fee), and the alledged matchmakers are nothing but telemarketers paid to chat you up.
HEY PAIVA's: the Santa Clara Co. DA's office got you once before; looks like they'll be meeting with you once again!
This is a SCAM, Run Away.
I am a member of this so-called club, This is almost a SCAM, They charge thousands of dollars to the members, ask them to sign a contract and the service is bad. The matchmaker are useless and make fun of their customers after parties. Most of their claims of services are incorrect. I am planning to go to court them. If you want to throw your few thousand in a ditch , this is the place.
Most of their member women are OLD of 45-55 years old and fat and ugly at that. The match-maker do nothing during any sessions, dont try to break ice. dont introduce people.
For every event they charge money, some like 100s of dollars. This is the worst money I ever spent.
I think we should all go to court for these crooks to get our money back. lets all organize, and file a suit against these corrupt ppl.
The corrupt CEO of this SCAM is Julie Paiva and Marc Paiva , lets make sure that they cannot scam any other ppl again. WHOIS tableforsix_com to get her contact info.
Everyone who is scamed by them , file complaint at better business B at goldengate.bbb_org , these crooks even proudly have Better Business B_ logo on their site. what a nerve
How to Get Your Money Back From Table for Six.
If Table for Six has in fact gone closed it's doors, immediately call your credit card company and cancel the charge, even if it has been 6 months. The credit card company should prorate you the amount you lost based on your membership with Table for Six. They will get their money from the credit card processor that Table for Six used, who will then try to get paid through the bankruptcy settlement. However, since a business like this has few assets and I am quite sure it was protected with an incorporation veil, my guess is the credit card processor will get very little money back even as Julia Paiva goes on living in her expensive house in Pac Heights that her wealthy lawyer husband bought her.
Now, if you bought a membership in the last few days and you can show that Table for Six knew they were going to close their doors, then that is classified as fraud. You might consider contacting the Attorney General's office. Paiva and Table For Six has had difficulty with the law before, specifically when she settled with the Santa Clara County District Attorney's Office. She settled with them a few years ago for not refunding people's money who chose to enact the 3-day right to cancel, which is required in California for dating business contracts.
OUT OF BUSINESS. Table for Six has closed their doors and stopped answering their phones. This business is a scam, they said they had over 13,000 clients, how could they take that much money from people. I hope the owner, Julia Pavia gets put in jail. She should have to sell her Pac Heights home and refund everyone. She's just as big of a liar as Bernie Madoff. I want my $3,000 back, is anyone going to file a class action law suit against them???
My Worst Investment in 2008. Year 2008 was a bad investment year for me and most others but I have to admit that T46 was the worst invenstment. I assumed that there was "safety in numbers" and group dynamics would be interesting. I was wrong. The chemistry was horrible each time with all the vying for attention. It was difficult to have any kind of a meaningful conversation with anyone. It's a very superficial way to get acquainted. When I gave feedback to the staff I was met with surly insults. There are no guarantees in life and none here either.
First Class People, Events and Dining Experiences. I was really surprised to read some of the negative comments people have made about Table for Six. I've been a member for about two months and although it's a bit expensive, I have to say it's the best money I've ever spent to meet quality people in a fun, well organized and safe environment. I'm regularly called to join a table and the people I have met, both men and women have been first class professionals. Dinner conversation is intelligent, amusing and everyone is included. The coordinators are efficient and they do their very best to make sure everyone is comfortable. I've made some wonderderful friends and we've set up our own "follow up" dinners. And I've dated a couple of very nice men so far. I haven't had the time to join any of the activities so far because I've been so busy with the dinners but TF6 has kept me entertained every week for the last two months. And no, ladies and gentlemen, I am not employed by TF6 and they didn't ask me to write this. This really is a great way to meet quality people. I can't say enough good things.
It is absolutely amazing the wild extremes in the "reviews" posted here and in other places. I'm a single man living in San Francisco and a member of Table for Six since Fefuray of '08. So it's been nearly a year into the two year membership.
I've worked with the same great service personnel the entire time in three locations.. The service has been friendly, pretty efficient and the staff I got to know at events are fun and versatile.
I can't remeber what exactly was promised me, but the contract lists out the kinds and number of events or dinners and dates I'd get.
I'm pretty pleased with the experience because I 'm meeting some very interesting, suprising people.That's striking to me and pretty much level one of the experience because I don't talk to 95% of the people in my tennis club and no one at my gym.
The dinners I've gone to are unique experiences. I really wanted to have fun, be outgoing and contribute without taking over. But I didn't go with my checklist of: tall blonde with grad school, consulting career, tennis player, wine lover, mixed martial arts afficionada.no (just tall blonde wine lover) ..This, especially after the first dinner where I was seated and introduced to a woman who after three minutes had determined that I had not made her short list for the evening. Was I too short, my clothes not expensive enough, too ethnic,what?
I certainly felt that any more time spent on me was a waste of her time.I had effectively been eliminated. I was transparent She nearly excluded herself from any conversation with me and nearly the rest of the group which had a pretty good time nevertheless.
After that first dinner group I continued to follow my plan. I have met great and beautiful women of all kinds, heard fascinating and silly stories and had fun,made some good, new friends, been enchanted by the type of woman I had never expected tobe attracted to.
I gave myself a chance to give others a chance. Its all chance anyway.
