Made reservations here online using Open Table for Monday, October 16th. Got online confirmation again the day before. Upon showing up for dinner, we found the restaurant closed. Looking thru the windows, there was papers on the floor and chairs tipped over. Returning the next...More

To begin with it can be challenging to even find Fair Street! And then finding a parking spot in town on a Saturday night is its own issue. But then you go inside & all that flows away. The restaurant is cozy, comfortable, The wait...More

We really enjoyed both of our meals at 29 Fair this past week. We happened upon it while walking around one afternoon and returned later that evening for dinner. We ordered the mushroom flatbread with arugula, the lobster bisque, halibut and the mushroom risotto. The...More

What a fabulous meal! Great ambiance - candles, dim lights, nice music, tables not too close. The food was terrific - original salad special with fruit, cheese, fresh lettuce, tangy dressing. Wonderful Lobster gnocchi with lobster, tomatoes, flavorful sauce. Halibut perfectly cooked. Can't say enough...More

I highly recommend making a dinner reservations at 29 Fair. The restaurant itself is very cute and cozy. The staff could not have been friendly or more accommodating to our group of 5. We ordered the Fig and Prosciutto flatbread as an appetizer and requested...More

29 Fair is one of our favorites on the island. Just beware they continuously book reservations when the restaurant isn't open, and sometimes at the wrong location; they own another venue in Sconset. But we love the food and the interior.

What a disappointment after our wonderful meals here last year. Flatbread with lots of lettuce, three quarter size pieces of cheese for $20+. Terrible. Fig flatbread okay, but not worth the money. The major conversation piece was however the salad: one long piece of lettuce...More
