I wanted to have a conversation with her, so i walked to the table she was sitting in.

Are both the above sentences grammatically correct?

We don't sit in a table, but we may sit in a booth:

So, either of these would be idiomatically correct:

  • I wanted to have a conversation with her, so I walked to the table she was sitting at.

  • I wanted to have a conversation with her, so I walked to the booth she was sitting in.

As a footnote, here's another way you could say it, and avoid the preposition altogether:

  • I wanted to have a conversation with her, so I walked to the table where she was seated.

Also, it might be worth noting that we may not sit in tables, but we do sit in chairs:

  • I wanted to have a conversation with her, so I walked to the chair she was sitting in.
