Diner Reviews
  • "My husband and I took two friends from out of town to 29 Sudbury on Saturday night at 7:30 and were seated right away on the outside deck upstairs. The deck is small overlooking the parking lot, but is pleasant for outdoor dining. Our waiter, Frank, was AWESOME ... he was attentive, answered all our questions about the menu & specials, and made great recommendations. My husband had the bolognese, two of us had the swordfish and one had salmon. My husband had the bolognese before and said this was much better, the swordfish was the best I've ever had. We all raved about our food and the wine selection. Great to be able to go to the bar after dinner, too. It was such a lovely evening ... 29 Sudbury is still pricey, but was perfect."

  • "The waitstaff was frustrating. Messed up the order, barely checked in, forgot to bring things, didn't follow up on questions. The food was good, but sooo overpriced. Quatro fromaggi flatbread might have literally had 4 sliced mushrooms (or seemed like it). $19 for garden salad with 6 SMALL shrimp? $12 for glass of Sangria? Flatbreads were undercooked and tough. Bread on the table was good. Caesar salad and wedge were all good. Sadly, we all had the same reaction- not worth returning. There are several nicer non-chain restaurants that we have enjoyed more. Too bad, we all wanted to like it :("

  • "WEnt with a group of 4 couples for my husband's birthday. Stumbled upon this restaurant and wasn't sure what to expect (the reviews were good, so we gave it a shot). Bar area is nice ans spacious. Drinks tasty, generous and potent (but pricey, a recurrent theme and the only downside to the place). Great service. Accomodating staff (we were reserved for inside, but when tables outside became available, we relocated and when the mosquitos descended, they provided us a nice table for dessert). The food was quite good. The pizzas yummy. The layered chocolate cake and salted caramel apple pie topped off the night. The bill however, was not so pleasant (the $12 drinks should've tipped us off!). But on the whole, loved it and would go back."

  • "My family has been here 1/2 dozen times since it has opened and it is always delicious. The waitstaff is so friendly. I have never done an Open Table review and I'm doing so b/c I want this restaurant to succeed! It's in an unusual location in Sudbury but SO worth finding it and going!"

  • "I had the arugula salad with grilled chicken and my friend had the hamburger special. Both were delicious. It's also great for dinner and is best eatery in Sudbury area hands down!"

  • "This was our first visit to 29 Sudbury - on the recommendation of a friend. The restaurant has a unique ambiance and two choices for outdoor seating -- on a patio or on a second floor deck. We opted for the deck. It was a good choice and, although it overlooks a parking lot, it also looks into a woods. The server was terrific! She was very patient with my friend who couldn't decide what she wanted to eat and was very attentive. The food was delicious and worth the wait -- from the bread with hummus and oil, to the wonderful beet salad, and the Italian entrees were terrific. The only thing that wasn't top notch was the Latte. Overall a wonderful experience and a place to which I will return. I have already recommended it to friends."

  • "I eat here often due to convenience. usually on a weekday nite.Recently The last 3THREE times the service was unnecessarily slow.The kitchen was always blamed.Last fri nite it was unbearable!!we arrived at 7:30.at 8:15 the apologies started. the waitress was good at keeping us informed that the kitchen was slow-at least 5 times up to 9 pm.Eventually AFTER the meal arrivesd a little after 9 the manager came up.she claimed it was due to a large group.she offered a free dessert.I traded mine for a glass of wine. no other desserts or anything else was offered. we saw 2groups of 10,not too large.Last week on a tues nite it was empty & still slow;even the drinks took 15 min!.Only go if you want to drink a lot to fill in the time.."

  • "I think our experience was set by an inexperienced waiter. We were super polite, but unfortunately, he just didn't understand Customer Service. He was MIA for most of the night when taking our order, bringing our food, and checking in on our meal. He lacked knowledge about the menu or special requests (plain pasta with sauce?). He never came back to check on our meals, so when there was a problem, a replacement was not an option and there was no attempt to rectify the situation in an alternative way. Either he was spread too thin (working with a Bachelorette party on the porch that he wished would be more rowdy), he was not trained properly, or the restaurant doesn't train their staff to provide good service."

  • "upstairs was too cold so we moved down to the bar, no problem. We started with Wellfleet oysters which were good. My wife had the clam app for an entree and I had the swordfish. the clams were sandy. the swordfish portion was about the size of a small peach, but tasty as was the risotto. coffee was pitched as amazing, but in fact was luke-warm and tasted burnt. so for two app, one entree and no alcohol we paid $100. a real waste of money and we will not be back."

  • "Went with a group for lunch. The food was delicious but the service extraordinarily slow. We waited almost 1/2 hour to get our meals. Dining outside was lovely except for the almost constant noise from delivery trucks in the parking lot and sirens from emergency vehicles driving by. I would possibly give it another chance - sitting inside when there is more time to spare. Not a place to go for a "quick lunch"."

  • "We have eaten at 29 Sudbury about a half dozen times and will keep on going back due to convenience, and it is definitely a fun place to go. But the prices are high for the quality (Sunday night we got the porterhouse special for $39 and it was not worth it) so we in the future will stick to the flatbread pizzas, burgers and pasta, which are excellent."

  • "I'd never been before, so I had no idea what to expect. The restaurant and bar area were attractive. The place was pretty busy for a Tuesday night. The service was excellent. The food was okay, but definitely not worth the price tag. We all had 1 drink and dinner and it wads $45/each, which I found to be pretty costly for what it was. My chicken was on the dry side and definitely not worth $27. My friends' swordfish over risotto was cold and had to be sent back. I might return if invited, or whatever, but I wouldn't run back."

  • "We ate outside for one of the first warm nights of the summer. We requested outdoor seating when making the reservation and they were able to accomodate us easily. Our only complaint is that we were outside but it was kind of like sitting in the parking lot. Upstairs outside would probably be better. The food and service was excellent; it came promptly and was a good value compared to some other area restaurants. We will definitely return."

  • "Good restaurant-good choices. Convenient. I would eat here again or try take out. Sudbury has been in great need of a restaurant like this."

  • "First time at 29 Sudbury. Food and service were great. My only complaint is that the mixed drinks were really expensive. Stick with the wine and beer and you'll be happy."

  • "I went to dinner with 6 other mom's for a special night out and we were so disappointed! Our waiter was weird and creepy and paid no attention to us. When I confronted about him coming over to take our order, he was very rude. The flatbread was salty and the rest of the staff was not friendly at all. We had to run around trying to find other waitstaff to help us, but no one seemed interested."

  • "This was our first but won't be our last visit to 29 Sudbury. My wife had the pizza with ribs, loved it; my scallops were excellent. Our waiter Kyle was over the top first class. Energetic, friendly and very helpful. I like the restaurant very much. "

  • "My husband brought me to 29Sudbury for my 33rd birthday. The food was great, but the service was terrible. We had a waitress that was training that we saw 1 time. She was great, but never came back to our table. The waitress that was training her was sweet, but never offered to refill our waters or wine/alcohol. The food was a wait, but worth it, as it was delicious. The hostess was rude on two occasions coming and taking our extra chairs, only to bring that back moments later. An establishment like this should have extra chairs and not be having to interrupt on numerous occasions to meet the needs of another table. You can have great food, but if the front line is lacking people won't return. "

  • "The meal was very good and the atmosphere was fine. Just two suggestions for improvements: Tell the wait staff to stop hovering and expand the beer selections to include some darker, unfiltered options. I felt rushed by the waiters from the minute we sat down. We were asked about drinks before we really had time to look at the beverage selections. Later as we finished eating, a waiter was there instantly to remove the plates. It was like they were in a hurry to get us out of there. Regarding the beer selection ,given all of the great craft and microbrews available these days, the offerings at 29 Sudbury were inadequate. Darker brews were almost nonexistent."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "We decided to give 29 Sudbury a second chance after our first experience, while not terrible, didn't leave us wanting to come rushing back. Complete turnaround! Our waiter (Stephen) was great and attentive, despite clearly having several tables, and we never felt like he forgot us. We had the mussels, which were delicious and cooked perfectly. I had the pork-which was outstanding, and my husband ordered the swordfish, which is strange for him- but Stephen sold it, and my husband wasn't disappointed. All and all we were really happy with our experience, and we will be back. Kudos to the staff at 29 Sudbury for taking some of the not so great reviews to heart and making changes!"

  • "We enjoyed our lunch break at 29 Sudbury. First time there will definitely return. Good food, good service, good prices, good location!"
    Dined on 5/22/2014
  • "The food was pretty good. The arugula salad was a bit dry, needs more flavors in it so I wasn't thrilled with that but the artichoke flat bread/pizza was delicious. I look forward to going back. The place also could use some additional decor as there doesn't seem to be a real ambiance and you can't really tell where the front door is when you walk in - the hostess stand is at what might appear as the back of the restaurant."
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "This was our first visit to 29 Sudbury and we were pleasantly surprised. It was not as noisy as others had reported and the service was excellent. When one of our orders came out not as we had requested, the staff was apologetic and made the situation right. We will definitely return."

  • "Two friends and I had lunch at 29 Sudbury this past Monday. None of us had been there before. Our waiter was attentive but not overly so and we were able to linger without feeling rushed. We all ordered salads. I had the spiced tuna, as did one friend, the other had the grilled salmon. We all commented on how delicious they were. The fish was perfectly cooked and seasoned and the mixture of salad greens and other ingredients was delicious. We did not partake, but the cocktail list looked very interesting. We all hope to return for dinner very soon with our spouses."

  • "I have dined here before and been completely satisfied. Our experience this mother's day was less than perfect. Perhaps the mother's day crowd through the chefs a bit. Salmon was over cooked and creme brulee was eggy. Otherwise it was fine."

  • "So disappointed was looking forward to a great dining experience the food was delicious however we were seated at 2:40pm and our meals were not serveded till 4pm they kept apologizing that it was there 1st Mother's Day however we were the only diners inside and since it was a warm day the outside was mobbed and it seemed that that drew attention away from the few inside probably will never go back despite the 50 gift certificate we event stayed an additional 30 minutes for our complimentary desert but that never showed up either too bad great location and ambience but they need to get it togetherq"

  • "We live in the neighborhood and have been 3 times. The food is good, but the service is always really terrible and seems to be an issue with the kitchen, not the waitstaff. We waited at least 45 minutes for our food on Mother's Day and it wasn't even busy yet when we got there. Then, after requesting our check, we waited a long time again. We were there a total of about 2 hours for brunch."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "The food is always extremely delicious...the service is always too slow and the staff often forgets that patrons are even there. A hostess seated us but no wait staff came. We had to get our own water from the bar. We had to get our own drinks from the bar. Finally a server came but never came back after dinner was finally served to ask if we needed anything. We had to get our second drink from the bar on our own. Not the first time this has happened. Kuddos to the chef, shame on training."

  • "First table was too close to bar and music. They cheerfully took us upstairs. Much better. The beef carpaccio was generous and delicious, and the cucumber salad huge. The swordfish was perfectly prepared although I felt the brown butter risotto had too much butter. The waiter was very attentive and made certain the steak was prepared to our taste. Good friends and good food. Just wish there was a quiet corner. Have to come back and see. "

  • "We have been wanting to try No29 for a while, and wow, it was great. We are GLAD we went upstairs to check out the second dining room; it is a far cry from the industrial, noisy downstairs. Will go for the "booth" next time. And the food was outstanding. Best of all, it came out piping hot! Service petered out as they got busier, even though there were plenty of people running around taking orders and delivering food (they use the team approach). Still won't keep us from going back."
    Dined on 5/9/2014
  • "The pizza quattro funghi was a wow; everything else was so-so .... seafood risotto, beef rib, salads, creme brule. Good but not great. If you limit expectations to casual, upscale pizza and some nice wine, you can be happy. If you want wow dining in the western suburbs, try Bondir in Concord or Sprigs in Acton."
    Dined on 5/6/2014
  • "First the good. Food was very good. We split the artichoke app and had swordfish and linguine asparagus entree and flourless chocolate cake for dessert. Server was very good but the kitchen took 1 1/2 hours for our entree and he kept apologizing--not his fault. We sat down at 7:45 and left at 9:45. We suspect that no manager was on duty because there were Christmas Carols playing during dinner--it was Derby day. It was noisy. They do a big bar business. It would be great fun with a group, but this is off our date night list. Too bad because we are local."
