i currently have the following:

<?php

$field_name = "text_field";
$field = get_field_object($field_name);   

<table>
    <tbody>
    if( isset($field['value'] ): ?> 
        <tr>
            <th><?php echo $field['label']; ?></th>
            <td><?php echo $field['value']; ?></td>
        </tr>
    <?php endif; ?>
    </tbody>
</table>

my goal is to make the entire table row collapse and not display if there is no value entered.

clearly a novice. thanks for taking a look.

    Oh, silly me, I'm blind... you need <?php before the if statement :P

You have a mismatch in your PHP tags. Use this:

<?php
$field_name = "text_field";
$field = get_field_object($field_name);   
?>

<table>
    <tbody>
    <?php
    if( isset($field['value'] ): ?> 
        <tr>
            <th><?php echo $field['label']; ?></th>
            <td><?php echo $field['value']; ?></td>
        </tr>
    <?php endif; ?>
    </tbody>
</table>

As per ACF documentation, field[‘value’] will always be set.

Instead do if (!empty($field['value']) or just if ($field['value']).

Thus it should look like this:

<?php
$field_name = "text_field";
$field = get_field_object($field_name);   
?>

<table>
    <tbody>
    <?php
    if ($field['value']): ?> 
        <tr>
            <th><?php echo $field['label']; ?></th>
            <td><?php echo $field['value']; ?></td>
        </tr>
    <?php endif; ?>
    </tbody>
</table>
