Hi Anita, sorry you are having problems with you table top. I hope this will help you. How to Refurbish a Tile-Inlaid Kitchen Table | Home Guides | SF Gate
A tile-inlaid kitchen table is a good candidate for a refurbishing project because it ... down to regrouting the surface, replacing the tile or refinishing the table itself. ... New grout can then be pressed between the tiles, using a rubber grout float.
If you can dig it out. You can regrout, then seal it. I've used a nut pick or small screw driver to get it started, be careful with the tile.
I agree with Kelli, if you can get it out, you can easily replace it. As Kelli noted, be careful not to chip or break the tile. Good luck, Anita, you can get the table top back to looking like new!
