There are three styles of table at Table No. 1 by Jason Atherton, depending on your desire for privacy or conviviality. For two-person dates, reserve early to guarantee one of the small tables that line the windows on either side of the dining room. For larger, casual parties, the long communal tables in the center of the dining room are ideal for sharing and socializing. These long tables may also be a fun place to sit for smaller parties or even single diners, if you are the type who likes to chat with other patrons in a restaurant. The third type of table is located in the private rooms and seats between six to nine people. These are the tables you’ll want to book for important occasions or business dinners when you’ll want a space all to yourselves. In addition, when the weather is fine in Shanghai — which means spring, early summer or fall — there’s an outdoor patio space for dining in The Waterhouse at South Bund hotel’s central courtyard.
