Yes I have used this but, I was looking for the gloss finish and it has held up well.

My table has not been exposed to the amount of traffic as those you are making for restaurant use but, I’m quite certain this finish will stand up to that.

I do not have any advice for cutting the gloss finish. You could experiment with a poly semi-gloss or flat finish, over the epoxy, on some scraps but I just don’t know if this treatment would hold up to the wear and cleaning that follows each use, nor am I certain that a poly finish will permenantly adhere to the epoxy.

Sorry I can’t offer a better solution, this post may be visited by one of the LJs that can address your concerns of the high gloss finish.

EDIT; If there will be direct sunlight from windows or if florescent lighting is used, I would go with a UV protection if you are apprehensive of the wood stain fading.
