29 Sudbury Ratings and Reviews
I thought the service and the food were excellent. I was quite disappointed with the ambiance/decor/and somewhat with the cleanliness. The decor was very lackluster, I could understand if it was to be minimalist or industrial - but there were a few paintings on the wall, but they didn't really seem to go together (some of the town of Sudbury and others that just seemed mismatched with the others)- just odd that it was something I even noticed - that's not something I would normally even be aware of. But when you are paying $30 a plate, you should feel that you are in a nice place. And the floor (a buffed cement floor), was filthy around us and other tables with lots of food or chips or fries from previous diners.
Went for Valentines Day with wife. Rervation at 8 showed up at 745 said we will be seated in a minute. At 830 inquired and they said could not find reservation. Ordered short ribs with mashed potatoes. Came back saying ran out of mashed would roasted potatoes be ok I said ok. They couldnt mash roasted potatoes?? Meal was cold. My wife enjoyed her short rib pizza. Expresso martinis were very good. Prices were high thought it would have been quality of Bulfinch's, also in Sudbury but was not even close. I guess that is why Bulfinch was booked and 29 Sudbury had plenty of openings. Lesson learned should have called Bulfinch sooner.
Valentine's Day dinner. Service was friendly and efficient from beginning to end. Split the gorgonzola salad. I had beef wellington (special of the day) which is one of my favorite meals. My wife had shrimp and risotto. For dessert we had cheesecake with strawberries and chocolate on top. All very good. I had a draft Perillo and my wife had a glass of wine from there extensive winner list. We'll come back!
We usually have a nice easy meal here at 29 Sudbury. Last night our food was good, but there was unnecessary confusion. Their servers should have a pad - either paper or IPad. Memory isn't reliable enough.
Beer we ordered wasn't available, ditto the second. The third took a long time to arrive, although wine came right away. Offered bread was never provided, which would have made sense since we were drinking and waiting. Salad and appetizer were good. When entrees came one was correct, the other completely off - not even a dish we discussed. Fortunately what we had ordered was a quick preparation. Both entries were quite good.
One of the diners at the table next to us complained to staff that "I'm 57 years old and that's the worst service I have ever had..." Our experience wasn't that bad, but left a lot to be desired.
Another server (maybe management) vaguely consoled them, and later us. He offered us another beer to compensate ("No, driving...") but not a dessert or any break. Our server, who other than messing the meal up, seemed like a pleasant bright person. The dining room wasn't busy, but there was an big event upstairs which our server did not seem involved in.
Ultimately, the restaurant could do better, even on a busy night. Keep beer/wine lists updated, write down the orders, minimize your liquor liability by giving diners bread while they wait, make lemonade from lemons by treating the wronged diner graciously well. That's how you maintain customers!
Like so many suburban restaurants with just-like-the-city ambitions, they nail the food but flub the service. The dining room is regularly understaffed and, when staffed, staffed with too many staff who are confused about how to provide service. To be clear, all the wait staff had a great attitude and genuinely want to help, but either can't or won't or don't know how.
The food was delicious. The music was a little too loud upstairs. It took a while for drinks and courses to arrive but everything was delicious. We ordered the burrata appetizer and lamp chops plus a Mediterranean salad. All fabulous. The entrees were salmon, shrimp scampi, pancetta wrapped cod and bolognesa. All scrumptious. We love this neighborhood restaurant.
My wife and I attended the New Year's Day brunch, which was wonderful. The music provided by Jacques Raymond and Russ Costa was most enjoyable....they were a big part of why we went there that morning. Also the food was excellent and the bloody mary's are the best. Will do this again.
Service was terrible. My husbands steak arrived so rare it was cold in the middle, he sent it back. She did apologize and agreed it was much to rare. She brought it back to the kitchen. My meal was finished by the time his arrived. The waitress never offered is another drink, didn’t send the manager over to talk about the issue with the steak. The final issue came when she brought us the wrong check.
We had eaten there before so we might be willing to give it another chance in the future but for $90 it was an extremely disappointing night.
Had never been and was really pleasantly surprised. Didn’t appear to be much upon walking in but the place filled up quickly and we knew it was going to be good. Our server was impeccable. He came to our table multiple times, answered all our questions and was just great. The food was phenomenal. 2 had the short ribs, 1 salmon and 1 crab pasta. It was truly one if the best meals we had all had. Will def be back!
Sunday brunch was amazing. The portions were surprisingly huge for the price range ($12-$16 for the plates we got). The build your own Bloody Mary was amazing as well. We had the Biscuits and Gravy and the traditional Eggs Benedict. Both meals were mouth-wateringly delightful. We had brunch at 10am and were both full until 5pm. Can't wait to go back.
This was our first visit and we will definitely return. Food and service both terrific. I had the short ribs entree, which melted in my mouth and was delicious. My husband chose the pasta bolognese, which he enjoyed. Portions were generous, and we took home leftovers for lunch the next day. Server was friendly and knowledgeable. Atmosphere nothing special, but comfortable and relaxed. Highly recommended.
Tried this restaurant for the first time based on Open Table recommendation and was very happy with every aspect of the experience. Enjoyed the decor, the seating, service and food. The menu was diverse and exciting, so many things I would like to try that I will have to come back, many times! Highly recommended.
I had not visited this restaurant in quite a while because it was not very impressive in the past . This place has done a complete 180° turn around the service the salads and entrées were fabulous I don't know what to say I'm still stunned it was so good it is now on my regular restaurant route awesome
Food excellent and interesting, service friendly and competent, only gripe is that the physical surround is dreary: dark space, polished concrete floors, putty brown walls, virtually no artwork or decoration. They desperately need a good interior designer. That being said, it won't prevent me from going back--the food was so good. First course, a salad with prosciutto, shaved fennel, marcona almond, sun-dried blueberry and port wine white balsamic dressing. . . .a divine combination of flavors and textures. Entrée was prosciutto-wrapped cod served over Yukon potato hash with tiger shrimp, braised kale, roasted pepper butter and roasted cippolini onion. . . .crusty surround to the fish, very fresh, ample portion. . . .dessert, the lemon tart w/ homemade raspberry sorbet--good, and my sister's chocolate banana tart was scrumptious.
Quality service and quality food. Very pleased with all aspects of the restaurant. We ate at the bar and the bar tenders were attentive to everyone as the restaurant kept getting busier as the night went on. Rest rooms were clean and I would definitely go back there again
This is my third visit to 29 Sudbury. The food is always very good but the atmosphere indoors is just awful. It feels like a glorified pizza place with low ceilings and those office building acoustic tiles. The decor is cheap and not well conceived. I would love to tell my friends and clients to go but the atmosphere is so awful I can't. It's a shame because the food we had was delicious and the other diners' plates also looked good. Hire a decorator!!!
