    We were sat at our reservation time, Danielle was the hostess, very welcoming and attentive. Our waitress was attentive as well. There were four in our party, the risotto was was not as creamy as anticipated but still appetizing, the cod was delicious perfectly cooked. Two of us ordered a few apps to split which was a perfect amount. We were disappointed with the broccoli rabe and sausage, as there was no sausage. We will return for another try.

    We had a great time at 29 Sudbury! Food and drinks were fantastic, great attention to detail, right down to the mug that the Moscow Mule was served in. Our waitress was very attentive and they even acknowledged our anniversary. Would definitely recommend if you are willing to try something a little different.

    Overall, this restaurant is very good. While it is pricey, it is in Sudbury! The menu is somewhat limited, but everyone at our table was extremely impressed with the food that they chose. The same Greer was out of this world, and there was a large number of other cocktails to choose from, and an extensive wine and beer list. From the lamb lollipops, to the beet salad, appetizers were a success! The dinner, however was not fantastic. The steak and risotto dinners were somewhat bland. There was a corned beef special, which was amazing! I kind of wish we had stopped at dinner, because the after dinner coffee drink was not great, and the salted caramel apple pie was a huge disappointment. If you are looking to splurge a little bit, go here.

    We were there celebrating a friend's birthday, unfortunately his dinner, porkchop, was dry and really not as billed on the menu. Thank goodness we had lots to catch up on or it would have been a short dinner. Let's talk about the chairs screeching on the cement floor every time someone moved. That went through me like nails on a chalk board. I Think it's probably a good place for after work drinks at the bar but in my opinion not worth the high prices for dinner.

    The food was very good. This was our 5th time dining at 29 Sudbury and the service ihas been consistently poor at best. The wait staff did not know the menu, they were not proactive, did not clear dirty dishes after appetizers, and it took a very long time to get drinks and food (over an hour to get our dinner).

    Service was remarkably slow. This was especially annoying as there were a LOT of wait staff and a manager in the same room hovering over food as it emerged from the kitchen, but apparently poorly trained: water glasses refilled like clockwork, but obviously finished dishes left on the table interminably. That said, the food was, on the whole, pretty good.

    We enjoyed the fried artichoke appetizer, my fiance had the cioppini and I had the summer risotto. I started with a quite tasty red sangria, which was generous sized and very rich. Our meals came out within a reasonable time, and the food was superb. I could not finish my risotto as the portion was so large... and I'm a good eater! The bar was about 3/4 full with a respectful clientele, friendly but grown up. This restaurant is about a half hour drive from our house, and we would definitely dine there more often if the prices were a bit lower. Not that the restaurant is overcharging, just a bit outside our conservative budget. It's a good "special occasion" choice for us.

    We went at a group of 6. The food was terrific but the service was not. Overall we really enjoyed ourselves as a large group so the service was easily overlooked. But had it been a 2 person date, the service would have been a real issue.

    Some noise reduction, is needed in this restaurant. We were lucky to have hit a slow day and could actually enjoy both the food and our friends' conversation. The food was good although the portions weren't as ample as in the North End. We enjoyed our waitstaff who were attentive and friendly.

    Wonderful food and service - we loved our experience of dining here for the first time. This definitely stays on our "go - to" list! As with many other restuarants, my single complaint is the noise level .... hard surface floor, walls and ceiling just takes away from trying to have a conversation across the table. I cannot understand why management of eateries think this is enjoyable .... if noise could be muffled slightly - I would eat here every night !

    After hearing rave reviews from 2 of my clients, I had to try 29 Sudbury. The artichoke appetizer was lacking in flavor. The margherita flatbread was good, but nothing over the top. The disappointment came with dessert. The apple crumb pie was burnt around the edges. The cappuccino machine was broken, so settled on a regular cup of coffee..which was served cold. The waiter was pleasant about getting me another cup of coffee, but it took a long time. I don't think I will return to 29 Sudbury.

    When I first looked at the menu, I thought that 29 was a bit ambitious for a suburban restaurant with pizza on the menu, but all four in our party were pleased with their meals. Lamb lollipop appetizers were received particularly well and tuna was done just right as well. There is a good wine and beer selection, and my wife love the special sangria. The entrees all arrived at the same time and cooked correctly: spring risotto, chicken, and two pasta dishes.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 8/21/2014
    This was a really disappointing first experience at 29; the ambience was really poor, it really gives off that strip mall suburban restaurant feel. Overall the food was of poor quality; the fried artichoke hearts were not good; the risotto had little taste and the halibut was dry and a bit fishy. The only positives were the chocolate layer cake and the excellent service. The total bill was $114 for two people; a much better meal can be had at Bullfinches in Sudbury or Prime in Wayland for a better price. I hope 29 can get things figured out because I think it would be great for Sudbury but I will not be returning in the near future.

    Good food. Salmon was tasty, but slightly dry. Salad good, but the goat cheese listed in the description on the menu was scarce. The restaurant could use a better sign. The black lettering on the door doesn't show up. The parking lot is okay, but to get to it from the street through the driveway isn't safe. On the way out the driveway on one side was blocked by a large van who overlapped the parking space. The decor is tasteful, and the space is quite large. I was in the mood for a "warmer" atmosphere.

    This was our first and last time visiting 29 Sudbury. The design of the interior makes the space loud and uninviting. The service was not attentive, making mistakes with the orders and generally not being present. The food was hardly worth the money; the soup of the day was sent back because it was inedible. Drinks had to be sent back because the tonic was flat. I won't come back to this restaurant; it's not worth the time or money.

    My group of 4 had a reservation. I waited by the hostess desk after giving the reservation name. I then waited and waited...... Meanwhile one of my friends checked in by the front patio. She was seated and waited... The hostesses did not communicate and we each waited 25 minutes till we texted and realized we were both there. Really pretty bad. I have been here about 4 times now and have found the food fine but not worth the price. The other night we all got salads with meat or salmon. Hard to mess those up. They were very good. Nice to sit outside and the drinks are always good. But service was just ok---our server was not very friendly or enthusiastic. Will I go back? Probably But it's not a "go to place" for me.

    My family dined here twice. Last time we sat at the bar and this time we choose patio. The food did not tasted much, so pizza was not bad at all. I guess, pizza and pasta dishes is what you should stick to. We ordered artichokes and Carpaccio and this was a mistake. Lobster risotto was not a winner either. The service was very friendly and it almost compensated lack of skills. Patio sitting was lovely.

    Service was slow and disorganized (took 15 min for someone to even greet us at our table, took another 15 mins to get our drinks-yet there was 2 servers talking at the hostess station), food was flavorless and overpriced (my husbands steak came out well done and was supposed to be medium rare, I ate my pasta alone while he waited for a new steak...which was also overcooked.) The manager did stop by to apologize but the kitchen just couldn't seem to get it together. Patio was nice and I did enjoy the sangria. Would recommend for drinks and appetizers only.

    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.

    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..
