wood you, could you?

I just bought an old danish-midcentury modern type dining set. Its wood with a finish (lacquer or shellac, I don't know). It has a couple of nasty scratches. I live in San Francisco....know of any businesses/individuals that do wood furniture repair?

Unfortunately, the table got scratched during delivery (by a rock, so pretty deep & not by me). The sides are a bit worn too. My options are to return the whole thing and call it a day, or ask for some money back and try to repair it myself (which is a whole 'nother issue)...or find a professional to repair it.
Before I decide whether I will return it, I'd like to get an idea about how much it would cost for professional finishing. If I do it myself, some suggest "restore-a-finish" but don't know if this would work for a deep scratch.
