29 Sudbury Ratings and Reviews
It was ok. I expected more/better brunch menu. I thought the bloody mary would be great, it was just ok and expensive, $ 15 and $22.25 if you get one shrimp added.
Kids menu was ok. Asked for strawberries and blueberries and got less than one strawberry and a couple blueberries and one plate had some deflated whip cream, we think it was whipped cream and the other had nothing.
Overall, very disappointing and will not go back, at least for brunch.
We had reservations for upstairs. That is the place to be where the ambiance is great to chat and enjoy the evening. We had a fabulous waitress! We had great cocktails with an antipasti board. It's huge filled with wonderful cheeses, meats, breads, etc. I highly suggest it. Our dinners were excellent and hot just the way we liked them.
I've been to 29 Sudbury numerous times and have always enjoyed my meal be it dinner or brunch. Two things I have to mention are both about the cocktails. My pancakes (which are enormous and delicious) cost $12.00 while my gin and tonic cost $15.00. Doesn't that seem ridiculous? It does to me. And the Bloody Mary's aren't very spicy. If you ask for more spice, they just add more horseradish. That's all you can taste. It taste like horseradish cream. My suggestion is try adding some cayenne pepper. Very little taste but way more spice. I still love the food here and it is worth the trip.
Went for Mother's day brunch it took our waiter 40 minutes to take our food order. A few in our party order bloody Mary's and the description on the menu said it came with extra toppings such a olives, celery etc. They didn't get anything mentioned on the menu. The service was just awful and they weren't that busy.
My family and I randomly picked 29 Sudbury for an early Easter dinner while we were in town for the Boston Marathon. The experience was monumentally awful. The server, a rude, inattentive, lady with purple hair was more interested in her cell phone and chatting with the bartender than our table of guests. We were surprised that the only menu offerings were brunch despite the restaurant's website indicating brunch ended at 2:00 PM. Making the best of the situation, we ordered several Bloody Marys, water, and an array of food from the brunch menu.
The Bloody Marys were inconsistently made and served (some in Mason jars, some in much smaller jars, and one even in a pint glass). Water was only refilled when I walked up to the bar (twice) to request the carafe be refilled. The food took more than an hour to be delivered to the table. I cannot speak on behalf of everyone, but the food was at best average and at worst terrible. The crabcake benedict I ordered was a greasy, tasteless mess, two of the three burgers ordered were so grossly undercooked, the hamburger was still raw, and additional menu items were not delivered as ordered. The food was delivered sporadically which made for an awkward dining experience.
Overall I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone for anything less than a headache.
Went here for brunch with my family on Easter and the service was extremely slow. Brunch took 2 hours and that was just for main courses. No appetizer or desert. The food was also delivered in 3 waves with my mom's salad coming out 10 min after the first person received their food. Food was just ok but was delivered cold.
Overall was a fine brunch destination. My only complaint is that you can't just order a single egg on the side. I wanted to order my 3 1/2-year-old daughter a single scrambled eg. but apparently the side order = 3 eggs and is around 3.50. I hate it when places that penny pinch like this.
Wide open seating-floor plan & kitchen area added to a higher noise level then we anticipated. Server was attentive, food was delish all fresh ingredients (bib salad, vegetable soup, lamb, flatbread, stuffed sole, bolognese) busy bar scene off the dinning room, It was a wine & beer kind of night with a decent selection. We look forward to a return visit to sample the appetizer and cocktail menus!
Service was wonderful but some of the food just needs a bit of tweaking. The burrata shouldn't be paired with olives - it overpowers the delicate flavor. The salmon dish is way too sweet - the parsnip purée is not "vanilla scented," it tasted like dessert. And the Brussels sprouts were not caramelized, they were almost raw. The rest of our food was great though - Caesar salad, bolognese, and the oysters were cleaned properly. Good beer list, nice atmosphere! I'll definitely be back but will just choose something a little less adventurous.
Downstairs dining room was rather stark and dim but the open kitchen with coal fired pizza oven along one side helped. Food was seasonal and interesting in a good way with many local ingredients. We'll be back and the ambience will improve when the outside seating is not snow covered.
We were celebrating my partner's new job and Sudbury 29 was the perfect spot. Great food, wonderful service and delicious cocktails. The food was as good as you would find in a high end Boston restaurant but in our backyard. The cocktails were made with care and high quality liquors/mixers not just thrown together from a well. Our server was attentive without hovering or being too intrusive. It was a great evening and I would highly recommend Sudbury 29 for anyone looking to enjoy a celebratory dinner out.
We went to 29 Sudbury to celebrate my brother's 60th birthday. I had indicated this iimportant fact n the reservation notes when I booked the table through Open Table.
The service was slow. My enree-the sole- included one small fillet of sole with a smattering of crab meat inside. It was served over a bed of slimy spinach. Random pearl onions and potatoes the size of pearl onions were oddly lined up around the edge of the plate. I assume it was supposed to be artisanal? Instead , the dish was sparse. barely lukewarm, and left me hungry.
For dessert, I brought a cake which the hostess told me would be set aside and brought to the table after the meal. This did not happen. I had to inform the waiter about the arrangement . Literally 15 minutes later, the waiter showed up with the cake. We ordered coffee to go with the cake which was served after the cake had already been served and eaten. What a treat. To say that I was embarrassed to have suggested this location is an understatement.
It was curious to me how our waiter would have such difficulty attending to our party given the fact that there were several empty tables - not exactly a busy night. As for the food. Just bizarre.
Perhaps it was so slow because others experienced the rip off that is Sudbury 29 and decided -like I have- to never return. This place is AWFUL!
Our first visit and spur of the moment recommended by a friend many times. We live in Wayland and we were looking for something local. Service was great on Satirday night 2/25 we sat upstairs by the bar almost at top of stairs but I cannot remember the name of our waitress - she was very good - glasses and curly hair
Service was excellent. Food was also excellent - this menu is much better than earlier menu. Absolutely delicious. The only detraction is that it still takes too long to be served dinner - improved from before but the kitchen still having a tiny bit of trouble getting food out in a timely manner - and one of our dinners was warm but not hot. Otherwise, great dinner. Planning to go back.
We enjoyed our evening at 29Sudbury. The food was very nice - one could feel that it was prepared with care and attention. Our waitress was attentive, quiet, and polite. I really appreciated that. I would suggest that you include more vegetarian entrees in your menu.
We've gone back to 29 Sudbury twice now for brunch, and it's been exceptional both times. We went with another couple and started out with breakfast cocktails. Custom, super-sized Bloody Marys are a specialty, as are several mimosa-based drinks - all delicious and refreshing. Our friends ordered 2 variations on Eggs Benedict that looked exquisitely decadent. I had the "Sunday's Sandwich", featuring scrambled eggs, Virginia ham, bacon and cheese on homemade foccacia bread. My wife had "Breakfast Pizza": bacon, eggs, ham and a sriracha drizzle on a crisp flatbread crust. Both were extremely satisfying and didn't break the bank. An afternoon nap is optional but highly recommended.
First time here- went for Valentine's Day - ended up sitting at the bar- so glad we did. The bar was great - big tv's, wonderful bar staff, comfy atmosphere. They had a special menu that looked delicious, but we wanted to sample a few different things. Had the caesar salad, and bibb salad - both delicious. Tried the stuffed sole- wonderful flavors. Also had the flatbread- perfect size, crisp crust and also delicious. Creme Brulee for desert- Yum .
The bar staff was very attentive, prices reasonable. Would defiantly return.
