Great steakhouse

Weve been visiting this steakhouse since 1996 and we still enjoy going there. The steaks are great, the service always good and we love the atmosphere. Would definitely recommend this steakhouse.

Once again a great night out. Our first choice place to celebrate all occasions delivered once again. Each one of our party of eight thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Perfect steaks and even a delicious vegetarian plate. Special personal attention by Janet, Steven and all the friendly waiters. Such a whelcoming and inviting atmosphere. Will keep coming back. Well worth the... More

I am an almost weekly visitor to this restaurant for many reasons of which the following dominates: the best food & service on planet earth. Spoil yourself with the ambiance of The Godfather during lunches and dinners. There is no match for the New York Cut Sirloin served at The Godfather. Same applies for other dishes. The waffle and baked... More

My memories of The Godfather include good steak and a dark atmosphere. After an absence of many years, my husband and I returned for a weeknight dinner. Nothing has changed, apart from the booths that are gone. The service was very good. My husband ordered the very "retro" garlic snails as a starter which turned out to be delicious. We... More

The very first time I ate at The Godfather was in 1987 and since then returned numerous times to savor the food, enjoy the hospitality and good eating out experience. You seldom find a really good restaurant that meets all your expectations, well The Godfather is just one of those "hidden gems" that when you want to spoil loved ones,... More

We visited the Godfather after 13 yrs! We found the same atmosphere with nit much upgrades. The food was great. We had ribs and chicken schnitzel. The waiter Lynett was really like a mother hen over us. We didn't mind as she was really sweet. It was not crowded being a week day but enough patrons to keep the atmosphere... More

The restaurant is in need of a bit of a makeover. It is dark and is starting to look a bit aged, but it is still in keeping with the mafia theme. The food is not cheap, but the steaks are excellent, perhaps amongst the best, and the service is generally very good. I have found the waiters to be... More
