Many outstanding & innovative dishes! Try the lobster mac & cheese - an innovative and delicious dish. We only wish there were enough demand to return whole branzino, a true gem & done so well, fileted & cleaned tableside, to the regular menu.

Very Nice Easter Buffet
Being Easter Sunday, you know that the meal will likely be a buffet or a limited menu. We knew in advance that it would be a buffet. We were very pleased with the selection and variety of foods. All of the hot entrees were very well prepared and constantly refreshed. Notably the eggs benedict did not fare well...the English muffin was dry and hard, but the egg was very fresh. Otherwise, everything was very good. Some of the desserts did suffer from sitting out a bit too long. This would be our only complaint. Overall, a very pleasant experience. We would go again.

Very good food. Service could have been a little better, we were never asked if we wanted a second drink. Did not see server very much after order was taken, although other employees attentive with water and clearing table.

Our daughter celebrated her 18th birthday. Very good food, however table was really tight and close to entrance, so it was crowded. But overall a great meal.

We went to 29 on Saturday night, it as not busy. We sat at the bar for a cocktail and ordered the cheese board for an appetizer. The board was excellent, We ordered 1 cheese and 1 meat. Included on the board was toast points, mustard, pretzels, gherkins, olives and jam. Very nice.
We sat down for dinner and ordered our entree. I ordered the scallops and my husband order the sea bass. The food was excellent. We loved everything about the dinner with one exception. We order dinner and it was on our table in less than 7 minutes. We like to linger over dinner and I was really surprised at fast service.
Bottom line love the food and it is very casual, easy place to go. We will visit again.

Nice Pre-Mother's Day evening
Seafood chowder was a big hit, lots of fresh clam, lobster, crab meat. Spare rib was healthy size and lean, scallops also delicious. Creative wine list, loved the russian river red zinfandel. Service was courteous though not exceptional. Only issue is the chairs are just not very comfortable, especially for an 83-yo Mom.
5/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
I enjoyed having dinner here. The service was very fast and efficient, especially for a Saturday night. We split the sausage flatbread, which was delicious and plenty for two. The scallops were heavenly! I would definitely return for those. The ahi tuna was delicious as well. The plates were presented beautifully and the portions were just right.

Fabelous for the money
I have been several other places over the years but for the price it was awesome
5/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
Good place for biz lunches
They have a well appointed dining room, limited but good menu with some specials, good food, well presented, good service and quite enough to easily have a conversation. Continue to return for lunch with my Malvern/Great Valley clients and partners.

Excellent food - Service Slow...
The food was wonderful.. we all had a great meal... the problem was we asked to be seated with the band which is normally upstairs in the bar; however, it was downstairs in the room off the deck. Therefore, the service was terrible! No one waited on us for 1/2 hour; we had to chase down our waitress a few times. We had the restaurant coupon and she forgot to take it off our bill which made us chase her down again! Again, the food was worth going back and the bands are great; but if you don't care how long it takes for service -- I would highly recommend it; and double check your bill!
5/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
go for the food
The 10 oz filet mignon was cooked PERFECTLY, it just melted in my mouth. Without a doubt the best piece of meat I've had in a long time. My wife also loved her Chicken Stephen. The wait staff was friendly, quick, and attentive. It was a great meal.
5/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
Always a nice break!
We enjoy Twenty9 more each time we visit there. They have a great bar, but the noise doesn't impact most of the dining area. The outside seating area isn't very big but it's the perfect place to be on a pleasant evening!

Good Group spot
We met with another family to celebrate a graduation. It was a great spot and service was wonderful.

Closer Stephen's on State
Stephen's on State is a great steakhouse restaurant in Media, PA, but not so great that I want to go through the hassle of driving to Media. Problem solved with Twenty9. Same ownership and menu as Stephen's for the Chester County crowd. I love the steak egg rolls and the lobster mac and cheese. I didn't bother trying the flat breads here because they were somewhat disappointing at Stephen's. The steaks were perfectly cooked and flavorful. I found the cocktails at this location (as well as Stephen's) in need of improvement - stick to wine and beer.
6/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
29 is a must...
Had another great experience with 29 this past weekend. Had the crab cake with mashed potatoes and spinach. My wife had the Scallops with corn risotto. Great service, food came out hot and was delicious. I would recommend the restaurant to everyone and anyone. Will be back soon.

Watering hole to fine restaurant
The old Boathouse was a lively watering hole, but not a place to go for a good dinner. Twenty9. Is lively, and sometimes noisy (though you can often find a relatively quiet spot), but you should come for the food! From at least 4 varieties of very fresh oysters, or fresh crab cocktail,, or large, fresh shrimp, to fresh Bronzino or salmon - or some of the best (Colorado) lamb rack I've ever has (two different entrees) or great steaks. All prepared perfectly. Wine list is reasonably priced, with enough range to satisfy most. Try it before it gets "discovered"

So-so food, but great service
We have eaten at Twenty9 several times, and the food has always been excellent. This time, it wasn't the same. The chef was unable to take the cheese off a dish that I had successfully ordered without cheese twice before. This place once had the absolute best mashed potatoes in the world, actually flavorful; this time they had that grainy texture, as if they were from a box. But my husband said his steak was good and properly cooked, and their appetizers are still very good.
The service there is always first-rate. this time our server, Sydnei, made trip after trip to our table in a far corner to make sure things were all right; She was always cheerful and willing to do anything to make the experience a good one. Much appreciated.
7/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our first visit for dinner after many good lunch experiences as several of us work in the GV Corporate Center. The food was excellent. The menu is very creative and the menu selections are very diverse providing something for everyone. The raw bar selections were particularly good.

On time seating with 7:00
On time seating with 7:00 pm reservation, sat outside of bar area overlooking deck, was quiet and comfortable, immediate servcie for drinks & specials, party of 4, all enjoyed their selection, scallops, lobster mac & cheese, Chicken Stephen, seafood chowder was different but good, deviled crab eggs, nothing special but different. Overall, good expoerience would go again
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Chef Ed rocks it!
Dinner was terrific! Food and service (Ray) were both excellent. The bar was jamming, and the noise carried way into the dining room, so it was hard to talk at the table. It calmed a bit during the entree. The AC felt like it crapped out during dinner. We were sweating pretty bad by the time we left. But really, get in here and eat the food. And pay a little extra for the dry aged ribeye....it is mind-blowing!!!!!

The food quality was good, but the menu options are limited and the prices are high. It was a hot day outside and the air conditioning was not a lot of help because it was extremely hot in there.

Great first date spot
I picked twenty9 bc it is close to all the financial buildings in malvern and on a recommendation from a friend,, I came on a first date and everything was excellent from beginning to end.. We had 6pm reservation and we were the 3rd table in the back... Great view and our server Mike was great... We stayed until 1030pm and I didn't feel rushed at all.. Kudos to Mike and the rest of the staff at Twenty9. The food was great.
Note to Management of twenty9: My server Mike, was recommended by a friend and we choose your place , and he was awesome!!!
We will most defintly return!!' Thanks
7/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
A group of 6 women shared appetizers, salads and flatbreads. All were excellent with unique ingredients and flavors. A first visit for all and we will return!

All-around great place
This was our first trip to Twenty9. What a fantastic experience! From the moment we stepped in the door, the service was fantastic. The wait staff was really attentive and provided great recommendations on the menu. The food was superb. We will definately be coming back.
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
will be back
We stumbled upon this place via a restaurant.com coupon - very nice - great wait staff - and food was unbelievable. Wasn't busy at all on a Friday night! We will be back!
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
First time there. Great food and great service. Try the rack of lamb. Melts in your mouth.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was our second visit to Twenty9. We dined in the back room which is quieter than the bar area. Food and service was excellent. Parking is no problem. The only area with a weak spot is the decor in the back dining room. The view is great of the Chester County landscape, but the room is not as nice as the bar area.
8/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
A Little Pricey
Food was great and service excellent. Very pricey and mostly aka carte. Might go back, but put off by the high cost to dine on a Saturday night in Chester County. There are other places I'd probably chose to dine elsewhere if I were to spend this kind money.

Hidden away, but worth it.
Food is great, service was better. They have a good selection of appetizers and entrees, and when served they had excellent presentation.
Their beer and wine list is not ridiculously long, but they have something for everyone.
9/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
The restaurant was all that that I hoped it would be. The food was great however, the noise level from the deck was to much for me to hear the person next to me. When asked if they could do something instead of closing the windows the response was it's the band on the deck. That was great for the ppl on the deck but I felt if we were not part of that scene the ppl inside should not have to suffer because of it. We almost got up and went inside but would have lost the ambience of the evening.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love the outdoor patio dining, the music, and the dancing. Keep it coming!
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Twenty9 was new to us and we enjoyed it with friends that share our love for oysters. Twenty9 did not disappoint. We really enojoyed our evening and the service was on top of their game. Will definitely be back!
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love the music!
We love this restaurant for the outdoor dining and the great music on summer nights. Love the patio dining.

Dinner was very good. After dinner, we went downstairs to the outdoor deck and watched the band which was also very good.

Recommended by friends for a special occasion. ...and we had a coupon (always an incentive). Place was easy to find (minutes off of 202 and 29), large, clean, lots of parking, and friendly staff. Wife loved the menu. Me (husband) who in all honesty has the taste buds of a slow third grader is NOT a fan of quality food (much happier with a bar food menu....which by the way DOES exist at their great bar....we were in their formal dining room).
Our server was perfect. She knew food and she knew people and she knew her job. Would we go back again.....no. Would we recommend it to friends and family who enjoy better food than me.....YES!
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
A little disappointed
This has been my fourth visit to Twenty9. My husband and I went by ourselves the first time and each time after that we went with other people. I like the atmosphere of the restaurant. You get the center city feel without going into the city. However, my one complaint is that the menu keeps changing. I know that things will change from time to time but the menu was even different from what is shown online. We took someone there in August and I had a boneless short rib that was amazing. When we went back in October that was gone, I ordered the filet. I will definitely go back but was a little disappointed this time with the menu choices.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
A very pleasant surprise.
A very pleasant surprise. The atmosphere, food, service were all very good. I just went a few days ago and have already told 10 people to try it out.

Driving from Long Island to York, PA. we needed to take a break for a bite to eat. We checked out what was in the area on Open Table and found this great restaurant off the HWY in a beautiful industrial park. Prices were reasonable (cheaper than Panera and or a Applebees etc…) plus the food was so much better. We sat by the window overlooking the awesome fall colors. Thank you for a nice break and good food for our trip, will be stopping in again.

Great barn-like building.
Great barn-like building. Very large dining room with the largest bar I've ever seen. The appetizers were wonderful. My Daughter will come back just for the tuna and crab ceviche. The Filet Mignon was amazing but a little pricey. I found the wine list to be limited and very pricey. Great for a special occasion.

They did not even ask if we had a Reservation. Which I took the time to make. The food was good but a bit pricey The Loud band was just outside the door and could have been abit softer. It was my husbands birthday so I was looking for a romantic dinner spot

Its a gem
I have been there several limes and I would have to say the food is very consistent. I took a friend that was gluten free and they accommodated her easily...
