The argument to interpolation needs to be "flattened" and should be of
the form

Flatten[Table[{i,j,f[i,j]},{i,3},{j,3}],1]

In[1]:= f[i_, j_] := i^2 + j^2
In[2]:= Interpolation[Flatten[Table[{i,j,f[i,j]},{i,5},{j,5}],1]];
In[3]:= Plot3D[%[x, y], {x, 1, 5}, {y, 1, 5}];

Alternatively you can use FunctionInterpolation:

In[4]:= FunctionInterpolation[f[i, j], {i, 1, 5}, {j, 1, 5}];
In[5]:= Plot3D[%[x, y], {x, 1, 5}, {y, 1, 5}];

Cheers,
Paul
