Very festive atmosphere
Look forward to having a different server next time.
This restaurant is the real deal!
Excellent way to spend a 90th birthday with family.
My parents were visiting from Michigan and my father loves spaghetti and meatballs. We've eaten at Godfather's several times, and were certain that he would love their food. We were correct. Not only did my dad love his, but my very picky eater 16 year old son scarfed down the fettuccine alfredo. They have a gluten free pasta, and unfortunately for my wife, she is intolerant of gluten, but her dish with the gluten free pasta was delicious.
The entire meal and experience was great. Polite servers, great service, and most important of all, delicious food.
Thank you for warm welcome and ambience, and prompt seating. Knowledgable, professional and friendly wait staff. Meal arrived warm and was delicious! A special restaurant all around. Thank you for the hard work - it's noticeable and appreciated.
Simply the best Italian restaurant in the San Diego region if you want good, old-fashioned, family-style cooking with a flair for the traditional. Been dining here since the mid-70s, and it's always a treat.
Went to this classic southern Italian restaurant for Birthday dinner. Service was fantastic. Food as good as always, No wonder this place has stayed in business when many others have not. Highly recommend, especially for special occassion
We JUST love this restaurant! It has old-school charm💕
Celebrating my 19 year old at The Godfather was fun, yummy and special ‼️
Arribiatta pasta - very good!
Another phenomenal experience! We have been coming to The Godfather since the 80s and it has NEVER disappointed. Always a great dining experience. We always bring guests and they are always impressed!
Fantastic place for a dinner date. Ambience is great, everyone was very kind and helpful, and the recommendations were very worthy. I'll be back in the future!
Godfather never fails to meet expectations; a wonderful restaurant.
The food just was not that great. Nice atmosphere and service, but the food was not up to par.
Excellent service and incredibly good food. The whole evening was a wonderful experience for all in my party.
Awesome servers and great food
We were seated in a booth in the bar and we never will agree to be seated in their again. Awful noise and zero ambience.
Too loud. Sat us in the middle of the restaurant and could not even have a conversation. With people talking loud and the music made it ridiculous. Never again
We have been going to The Godfather restaurant for over 20 years now and have never been disappointed. Service is is top notch and the food is delicious. No cheapo meato here! Great ambiance especially when they have the piano player.
Will continue to patronize this establishment. Have told friends about it and they always say you mean godfather pizza? No it’s not Godfather Pizza.
I have been enjoying The Godfather hospitality since the1970's. We always enjoy the finest food available in San Diego. I think their "Specials" are outstanding. You won't find better service anywhere and you will leave perfectly satisfied.
Really great service and delicious food, but very expensive for a restaurant in Clairemont. I think that we may only visit if it is a special occasion and have $ to spend.
What a fantastic restaurant! Ambiance is off the chart with Godfather pictures and waiters that could have been in the movie.
Food, service and music were great! We will be back!
Great food, great environment. Love the live music, but our group was close to the piano and made it quite hard to hear one another. Otherwise fantastic!
Had reservations at 7:00 didn't get a table until 7:25
Love the food and ambiance. Great place. Highly recommend.
Live piano, staff were on point, great wine options, and every pasta dish is reason enough to go back. One of the best restaurants in SD.
Great hidden gem. Live music as a plus. Come hungry and you won’t be disappointed. Great service and big portions, Italian style!
Always great food and service.
We were delighted to introduce a San Diego tradition to a good friend. Everything was superb.
This place was great! They accommodated our party of 9 and gave great service. I loved the bread and zucchini before the meal. I ordered the spicy shrimp linguine and really enjoyed it. It is a little pricey but I think it is worth it.
Excellent experience here! Sayeed was wonderful, and provided excellent service. We were certainly underdressed as we had just finished the day touring downtown San Diego, but they still sat us and treated us like any other customer. Was totally expecting to be turned away at the door, but we were thankfully treated the same as anyone else. Would totally recommend the Carbonara or Cannelloni!
Brought several friends with me and everyone loved it! Waiters were quick and efficient as always! Taste of the food was perfect, flavorful but not too spicy. I’ll be back again!
This was a most satisfying experience. We had not been there for several years but it was the same excellence we had previously experienced. Highly recommend if you want to feel great at the end of evening.
Great food Specials and the flavor out of this world.
The food was incredible once again and the service was outstanding.
Table was ready at the reserved time, service was great - attentive and courteous. Food was prepared and delivered in a reasonable amount of time.
We were here for my mother’s birthday and she enjoyed her veal parmigiana as usual. Also served was a New York steak, penne with salmon and vodka sauce, ravioli portobello, and my pollo alla marsala. Everything was excellent! I was hesitant to try the marsala but it was arguably the best I’ve ever had!
I have been coming here for over 10 years, The food is amazing! I have never had a bad dish here, they are also very friendly and professional. I highly recommend The Godfather!
The first time I went a couple months ago the food was delicious. I had the Veal Parm and my friend had the Sinatra steak which was all good. So we went again and I had Fra Diablo pasta with white wine sauce and lobster, clams, fish and calamari. The pasta was very hot at the bottom of the plate which I assume over cooked it. The fish was fresh but the sauce was gritty and tasteless. My friend said the mussels appetizer was bland and it was in a gravy type sauce which did not taste good. Also we had Chicken Parm and that was over cooked. I just don’t understand how it could be so good and then so bad. Won’t go back.
Exceptionally good food and service in a great atmosphere.
OUTSTANDING SERVICE. Pollo Saltimbocca delicious!
The only minor issue I had is that it was very cold inside the restaurant. Take a sweater.
