worst place ever
08/12/2012 by EditRozsa
My husband and me been many other places in many other countries,but this was the worst we have ever been.The food was barely eatable the service was ridiculous.The owner was forcing us to order more food as he is not a charity place,even though my 3 years old and my 7 year old was not hungry I had to order some food for them as well other ways he is refusing to serve us. I think this is absolutely disgusting.The owner himself is the rudest person of them all.I would not mind a bad quality food ,but customer service simply not exist in this place. We were asking some tomato sauce for the children,so they sent the waitress to the shop to buy some ketchup.It took more then half an hour to get the sauce.The place itself is cold and very tastless,with extremely poor quality furniture.the "decoration" absolutely tastless.The chairs are soooo dirty just as the whole place itself. No toilet paper in the toilet. We had to wait to be served for so long however the place was nearly empty.Probably because it took long to defrost the pizzas. Top of all these we did not even get a proper till receipt. All in all we had a very bad experience,and never ever return,and encourage all of my friends to go somewhere else.Even if they would offer a free meal I would not go there again.To be honest very expensive place as well in spite of that this is a horrible place to spend some time there. When I went back home I had a frozen ristorante pizza,which was much better than this Godfather oneReport this
such a let down

Having been to the Godfather a few times before and after a long break (due to having my daughter) we decided to book our table for my husbands birthday. As it was a Friday night i didn't want to have to wait for a table ! We walked in to find only 3 other customers, i was rather surprised as this place used to be so busy. I found it rather cold but was looking forward to my meal. My husband ordered king prawns for his starter and i had the potatoe skins, his looked superb and he said they tasted very good, mine well im afraid if i had wanted to go for a swim i would have went in a pool, they were swimming in oil, my guess is the oil they were cooked in was not hot enough, leaving me with with not very crispy but rather greasy skins. I dried them off with my napkin and ate them looking forward to my main meal. Mains my husband ordered a fillet rare steak with chips, i ordered the fillet with chicken supreme with veg, i explained i did not want chips as i had just had the skins, i asked for mine medium to well done. Again my husbands was just as he had ordered it, mine once again however was not, my steak was still bleeding, i asked for it to be cooed a little longer then the veg came and guess what the "potatoes" were fritters, i asked if there was any mash but was told that was how it came but once the owner noticed my steak had been sent back he came over and asked what was wrong. He did offer to get some mash for me. By now my huband had almost finished his steak and mine was brought back, hard burnt and bitter, i gave some to my husband to taste to check it was not just me and he said it was disgusting so i sent it back and went without my meal. The waitress was so nice and she kept saying sorry, bless her. The bill came and it was £49, quite a lot of money for the food we were given. No free drink to apologise or even a coffee. If this is how the godfather now runs his business, £22 for a steak other places in Newcastle charge £15 for then the food should live up to the prices, it used to but the lack of customers cold building,my poor meal and only 1 waitress working on a Friday night is telling me it no longer does.Report this

The Godfather is an Italian restaurant, in the most wonderful location in the centre of Newcastle. Right next to the Theatre Royal, it's slap-bang in the middle of the main shopping district. I've only visited once, at Chritmas for a meal with colleagues, and the food was delicious. The fanastic value set meal was great - we had either potato skins, garlic mushrooms or soup to start, followed by our choice of pizza or pasta main. I had garlic mushrooms, followed by penne bolognese, which were beautiful. I had ice cream for dessert, which was again very nice. The dishes ordered by my colleagues also looked and smelled wonderful. The restaurant was very busy, with other groups of work colleagues and families who'd been shopping, who had popped in for lunch. The dirnks were quite reasonably priced for a restaurant and I'd definitely go back.Report this
