Is a night table a thing anyone says in English? I would have thought bedside table or nightstand sound more natuaral translations to me.

Yeah, you're right. Night table is probably a bit archiac, but any English speaker would understand what you meant if you said night table.

what the hell is a night table? a bedside table?

Or actually "The wine glasses stand on the night table?"

Though nightstand is accepted as a translation.
