Without actually seeing whats wrong it really is just a guess but I'd think it your stack would be something like:

comp with subject (so it always shows above everything)
comp with table used as matte for
comp with reflected subject
comp with table

The thing is your comp with the table used as a matte for the reflection should really just be a flat color of the table's reflective area, so you can use its alpha to mask the reflection. This compositions I'm advising you to use don't necessarily need to be an exact copy of the layers you have. They just need to inherit their transformations so they match.

For example I usually tint things black and white and use as luma mattes to control my effects.
