Twenty9 is the newest success from partners Stephen Scutti and Executive Chef Edwin Tietjen, whose jointly-owned restaurant in Media, PA (Stephen's) has been topping the charts since 2003. Now, in concert with Patricia Archie, they have joined forces again to debut Twenty9, an upscale Malvern retreat located in the Great Valley Corporate Center. At 7,000 square feet, this two-level destination is a combined fine-dining restaurant, casual sports bar, and special event venue - all conveniently situated under a single roof. By day, Twenty9 accommodates the thriving businesses in the corporate center and surrounding areas, offering dine-in and delivered lunches, as well as lunch buffets. By night, Twenty9 dons its chic after-dark persona, with a focus on Happy Hour socializing, live music, and leisurely dining overlooking a landscaped panorama. From contemporary dining on the main floor to a sports bar on the lower level, to live music, Twenty9 provides the ideal setting for everyone!

Twenty9 was great. Delicious food especially short ribs and rigatoni with beef ribs. Nice wine and draft beer selection.

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.

Very nice evening. The food was very tasty and came out at all the right times. Our waiter was very attentive as well.

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.

The band was great. Our food did not come out at the same time. It was served Luke warm. Our waitress was pleasant but was covering too many tables.

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.

Ordered the steak medium. It was delivered closer to well. Expected blue cheese mashed potatoes and tasted no blue cheese. Restaurant needs a lot of work from the exterior to the interior.

Extremely loud bar and poor quality food. Very disappointing. Salads bland, chicken dry, steak tough. Go only if you appreciate a live band in the bar.

Mediocre at best. Chatterband is great but not in a venue with mediocre food, understaffed, a bit battered and not very clean.

Both beers were served with no head indicating poorly washed glasses or flat beer (or maybe both) Food was ok. Music was way too loud for the size of the room.

Dinner was fine, very good for most of us. My brussel sprouts were underdone and when returned, the gorgonzola cheese was burned. The server offered to take the sprouts off of our bill, which was perfect.

Really enjoy this place. Ray is such a nice waiter and the food is delicious. Had a taste of the pomegranate martini, it is delightful. Also can’t go wrong with a good steak and some Joel Gotts Cabernet.

Put a high chair in the reservation but it was not there until asked. Server was ok but seemed overwhelmed by the section. Food took a while because of a private party but the food is really good!

As always this restaurant never fails to please! The shrimp Lejon appetizer is our favorite along with the Ahi Tuna for myself and my husband always gets a steak. Next time I'll take pictures, just act savage-like when the food comes out.... :-) and forget to take pictures

Justin and all the staff are wonderful.

Enjoyed going to the restaurant. The service, location, and ambiance were good. However, while the food was presented well, both of our steaks were overdone. Then, we tried the desserts. The warm brownie was delicious but the lava cake was missing the lava!!

We went on Mother’s Day. We were a little late arriving due to road closures. The host didn’t have a table ready and asked us(2adults and 3 children) to sit at the bar.. not appropriate! Yet there were many open tables. Server was very nice and prompt. The buffet food was average if not below. Most of the sternos were nearly empty every time we went up to get food. Minimal choices and def not worth $30 a person. Nothing special for Mother’s Day unfortunately.

We enjoyed Twenty9 Restaurant for a Mother's Day brunch with 5 adults. It was our first time at the restaurant. It was nice and we would go back. The Buffet had a good variety of options. it was raining and windy, so we could not sit outside on their incredible deck. But we all agreed that we wanted to go back and enjoy the restaurant when the weather was better. I would recommend Twenty9 Restaurant for a weekend lunch/brunch or a great place to catch a game. their bar was really set-up well for sports viewing and libations!

Went to this establishment for Mother's Day Brunch with a party of 5. Food well below average and had other issues. Attempted to get my issues addressed by contacting Twenty9 via their website and still have not heard from them - horrible customer service! My first time here & certainly will never go again.

Enjoyed the special Surf and Turf today, Aaron is always cooking up something amazing back there to knock your socks off. I'll be the guinea pig any time at this restaurant. Never ever had a disappointing meal here. Brittany, Justin, Ben and Jess are just wonderful.

As always Twenty9 was amazing. Started with 2 different salads. I got the spinach salad and my husband always gets the chicken Caesar. We both ordered the Chilean Sea Bass special and were blown away with the quality of ingredients used. Along with a nice portion of bass we got 3 jumbo shrimp, broccolini and wild rice. Sunday is BYOB and the wait staff is superb. Ben was our server. See you next week !
