Without a MWE on which to experiment, it's hard to be certain. A couple 
of possibilities come to mind. One is to replace the 2x1 inner table 
with a multiline math formula (such as a "gathered" environment). 
Another is to click in a cell in the first column¸ click Edit > Table 
Settings (or right click and do the equivalent), set a fixed width for 
the first column and a vertical alignment of "Middle" in the column 
settings dialog.
