A sideboard is a table with a wide drawer in the guts that is flanked by drawers and cupboards on the sides and is used for storing serving dishes and platters as well for serving food.A server is a shallow table with drawers. It is a surface to place food before it is placed up for grabs. Unlike the sideboard, a server does not have cabinets.
The number of diners you expect to seat affects the kind of table you get. It's easy to get extra bodies around a pedestal table, but beware that a pedestal table can become wobbly and prone to tip when extended with multiple leaves. Round or rectangular tables with four legs makes it hard to pull up a supplementary chair.
