Few places necessitate me to write bad reviews as most places have some sort of redeeming aspect to them, but Newtown's food and service was so terrible that it requires me to write this review. Me and my girlfriend decided to try a new place for the evening and we chanced a new experience at Newtown. The service started out nicely and we were served our drinks and food order promptly. When we were served our meals (12oz strip loin for me and the slow cooked short ribs for my date), the strip loin was very rare as opposed to being medium as ordered and her ribs barely had 2oz of meat (the rest was fat and bone). She seemed okay with her food. I have had many steaks before and have never had a strip loin so undercooked. I wanted to notify the waitress of the issue but after 10 minutes of waiting I decided to go find her. The place was not busy (perhaps half capacity) so the service should have been pretty expedient. The manager was notified and the steak was recooked but alas the steak was still undercooked. I was offered a drink which I declined due to me needing to drive later. He then offered a dessert which we were not interested in. I thought to myself, why dont you do the respectful thing and compensate for the meal and not add unwanted things to mitigate the issue? After another wasted 20 minutes waiting to flag down the waitress to receive the bill and then paying, we both think the Newtown should find a new town to torture people's palettes and waste peoples time.
Needless to say that, after $100 wasted and an unsatisfied appetite, we will never be going here again and if the name is ever mentioned as a possible place to visit, a quite tart review will be given to warn them against coming to this establishment.
