Hey Daniel, Im so sorry for your experience on Friday the 6th!! It was our second week of being open and we were surly unprepared for the business we received that evening (yet super happy to have had such a nice crowd). I really hope we didn't completely ruin your evening and I'd be grateful if you'd consider excepting a gift card from us and come give us a second chance. Please email me at FoxBarnEvents.Jess@gmail.

This was a very nice experience with good food and a great environment. My wife, daughter and I enjoyed a nice meal. I have been to this space many times over the years, and I really love the new, updated features. The outdoor space is excellent, and the indoor space is great. In short, this was better than expected, and I will absolutely be back.

Chose to dine outside due to Covid. Great ambiance with bar area to be enclosed with a garage door for inclement weather. Soft seating groups as well as tables for outdoor dining. The inside decorations were welcoming and pub-like. The menu was varied with interesting group sharing items. An inviting addition to the upstairs restaurant. We definitely plan to return.

I was disappointed in the quality of our first experience at Twenty9. Both of our entrees were overcooked, the brussel sprout appetizer we ordered was burnt, and the short rib flatbread appetizer that was $14 included little to no short rib on each slice. For the amount we paid, I would have expected much better quality and value.

Ran out of fillet mignon
Strip steak had a funny earthy taste
Ran out of chowder soup
Two other soups ordered were warm/cool
Didn’t have the dessert listed on the menu
No concessions on price for all the errors.

The service was very good and so was the food except for the bread they served before the meal. It was flat bread and pretty tasteless as was the olive oil they served with it. We have been here before though and would go back.

We went on February 15th and booked our reservation on opentable. There was no indication that they were doing a Prix-fix menu the whole weekend for Valentine’s.
We like trying different places for dinner and wanted to try it based on their regular menu we reviewed on site. We’ll
Try again at some point.
Based on Valentine’s specials they over priced a a lot of you added up the menu offerings for the evening vs what they charged for per person and then options were basic and limiting.

We came to dinner on Valentine’s Day for a date. Food was amazing and we may have stayed longer if it wasn’t for the noise. We unfortunately did not enjoy our date due to the loud band playing. We couldn’t hear each other at all and were reduced to either yelling to have a conversation or just sitting frustrated that we couldn’t talk to each other. I felt awful because I waited too long to make a reservation locally and we actually traveled about 40 minutes to eat here. The room we sat in was suppose to be the quieter area but the constant in and out from the servers and people leaving and coming in was just as annoying. Just went from loud to louder. I can’t say anything negative about the service or food but I’d suggest to them starting the bands at 9 or later especially on Valentine’s Day when people want a romantic night out.

We stopped here while in the area. Made a reservation online to avoid a wait. I will be back. I had the braised short ribs in red wine sauce. It was very very good. Husband has the filet, which was also a great piece of meat. I am picky about ordering beef out. Sometimes it’s sub par. I would order both again. I deducted a point for the crab risotto. It was flavorless and tasted like yesterday’s dish.

While not close to our home, we went to this restaurant because of a gift card. We found the service was prompt, helpful and outstanding. The live music was excellent (we kept commenting on this). Our steaks (filet and NY strip) and vegetables were very, very good. While we were on the older side of the other patrons, we did not feel out of place.

We ordered martinis w cheese stuffed olives. Unfortunately, the olives were not edible-either the olive or the cheese. We also ordered the soup & appetizer specials - delicious! We split the rib eye special. Very good - perfectly cooked but slightly fatty. The service was excellent as was the ambiance.

Usually one of our favorites but certainly not based on this experience. Our server was slow and inattentive. We were seated right in front of an extremely mediocre and very loud band. Granted, we could have requested a move but it was too difficult to find our server to request anything. Had to hunt him down to pay the bill.

The menu was somewhat limited and the quality of the meal was overpriced for what we received. My boyfriend and I were looking forward to dining here for a while and were extremely disappointed! For the prices charged, the quality of the meals were just lacking and very disappointing. We will not be returning to dine there and sadly cannot recommend Twenty9.

While the food was very good, great menu and a new place for me, the food did take an exceedingly long time to come. There was only 10 other people in the entire restaurant.

I will try again when in the Malvern area and hope that the timing to get food next time is on par.

The food and service were excellent. What bothered me is the fact that we had a gift card, and when we gave it to our server, along with our credit card, he came back to us to say that because we were using a gift card, they would have to automatically add the gratuity. We said OK, although we thought that was a bit tacky. When the check came back we saw that they had automatically added 20% on the total amount of the bill plus the tax. We thought that was a bit presumptuous. The truth is, that our dinner was great and service was great. We would have added at least 20% on our own. The fact that we were told that we had to add 20% turned us off completely. I understand that there are some folks that tip on the net amount, after the gift card amount has been subtracted. I'm sorry about that, but that is not us. We felt a little bit offended. If that is their policy, then perhaps they should have added 15%, and then we could have made up the difference.

We really appreciated our server, Ray. When he didn't know an answer, he went and asked. When the sun was shining in our eyes, he hung up a cloth to block it. He was very nice, friendly and professional. The food was very good. I really enjoyed the crab and corn risotto.

The restaurant itself is very nice. The service was excellent, the waiter was excellent and attentive.
The food was a little below my standards for the price, but was presented beautifully.
The ambiance interview were both very nice. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a quiet place to have a meal with their special someone.
I do have to mention that I cook a way better steak at home on my grill then I got at this restaurant.
The price for dinner for two was $197.
