Diner Reviews
  • "Food and service were good. However we were placed right next to the kitchen which made it very hot. Coupled with this the air conditioning didnt seem to be working. When we requested to be moved to another part of the restaruant away from the kitchen area we were told all tables were fully booked despite a few large tables being vacant the whole evening. We had to remind our waiter several times for our jugs of water but other than that meal and service was pleasant."

  • "Booked a birthday treat for my partner and myself as he had never been to Gaucho before. He loved the decor of the restaurant, food and wine. The waitress was really lovely and very friendly and the other restaurant staff were very warm and friendly also. Would happily visit this restaurant again."

  • "Alas, there was no service! From the moment we arrived and were sent downstairs, only to be asked who we were all over again and then kept waiting to be seated for almost 10 minutes . The service was extremely slow (every one arriving after us received their meal before we did), the food order wrong and some items missing, the meat tough, culminating in an incorrect bill with multiple entries of items you did not order but was being used to replace the "specials"!! Finally, I accidentally knocked over the bottle of empty wine and that took a while before it was cleared up! Not an experience to be repeated!"

  • "My girlfriend & I booked for a special occasion and were not disappointed. Despite being originally sat on a table for 4, we asked to be moved to a more suitable table for two in the corner. The service was great, attention to detail, care and not too attentive that it felt intrusive. The food was incredible, notably the deep fried fillet steak - which was just like nothing either of us had tasted before. The whole experience was great and we will be coming back to Gaucho on Charlotte Street again!!"

  • "A meal out at Gaucho never disappoints. The staff at the Charlotte Street retaurant are incredibly attentive and make you feel welcome from the moment you step into the restaurant. They are all very knowledgeable about the steaks and help you make recommendations if you are a bit overwhelmed by the choice of steaks. The food is delicious. The underground ambience is low lit but very elegant. Ideal for a first date. They also have a private dining room which looks amazing. Gaucho is highly recommended."

  • "I love this restaurant. The interior is like a really up market club which I love, it really adds to the ambiance. The steak here is 2nd to none. All the staff were really friendly & I thought it was a really nice touch the way all the staff knew it was my birthday & knew my name to say happy birthday. Great night out & I loved every second:-)"

  • "The restaurant were very kind to change the time of our booking, as we were running late. However, they weren't that busy so it was easy for them to do that but our waitress was constantly looking around at her other tables. It was painfully obvious we weren't her priority, or she had too much on, or she may have been new...I am unsure .... but it was very irritating not to have her undivided attention. We asked her if she wouldn't mind concentrating on us so we could order and she apologised, but then ended up in tears! All a bit of a disaster. I certainly won't rush back there. Shame as had been recommended. A complete waste of £155 for a basic meal for 2."

  • "Probably the best steak I have ever eaten, I would highly recommend trying this for a special occasion or maybe just a Monday if you are rich!"

  • "This was our second visit to a Gaucho restaurant and we weren't disappointed. The staff are extremely well trained and attentive. They are knowledgeable about the food and wine especially the various steak cuts which they bring out to explain before you order. The food is excellent. On both visits we have had the ceviche then a steak but no room for pudding! The Argentinian wine is excellent. The ambiance of the restaurant is very cool. Very dark with lots of dark colours and walls and chairs covered in faux cow hides. Different levels inside the restaurant are linked by glass sided stairs and walkways. It's a really different experience."

  • "I had heard good things about Gaucho but this restaurant didn't live up to expectations. Service was slow and the steak was quite tough and gristly."
    dined on 25/06/2014
  • "I love the way they explain the different cuts of meat. Absolutely delicious food and wine. I like my steak well done & it was cooked perfectly, not tough at all.Delicious"

  • "Excellent steak. Great service. Nightclub style décor and musak a bit disconcerting, but worth it nevertheless."

  • "As ever, no disappointment with the service/staff/food or ambience. Love this place!"
    dined on 07/06/2014
  • "The service was excellent, our waitress, Monika, looked after us very well. The surroundings were fabulous. The steak was delicious, one of the group thought 'best ever steak'. Cocktails were substantial too! "
    dined on 07/06/2014
  • "Took my friend for a slap-up steak dinner and we weren't disappointed. The rib-eye was excellent and better than the sirloin; we had a 'flight' of red wine which our server kept topped up and it was a lovely evening. We didn't stint but the bill came to £200 inc. service."

  • "Took a few clients for lunch, the wine was fantastic and a great afternoon was had by all."

  • "Booked dinner as a birthday treat for my daughter and the food, service etc was perfect. My one issue - and it really is one that would put me off going again, is the appallingly low light conditions. I'm all for creating ambiance but someone needs to turn that dimmer switch up a touch. Perhaps it's an effort to keep power costs down? Or I could be cynical and suggest it is a ploy which makes it difficult to check overcharging on the bill? Fortunately my son has 20/20 vision and by the light of his phone was able to see the inclusion of an item we didn't have. It was only for the sum of £ 5.00 and quickly removed without argument but still ... Other than that it was fine"

  • "The atmosphere was great. The layout was chic and the food was divine. Would recommend this restaurant if you want to be spoilt."
    dined on 24/05/2014
  • "The food and service was faultless. The only downside was it was extremely hot in te restaurant which made us cut our visit short as we needed to get some air! "

  • "Our last evening in London we chose this restaurant because of recommandation from friends. The food was perfect and the service outstanding! We had a great last meel and was very pleased leaving the restaurant! Definately coming back!"

  • "We booked Gaucho on recommendation for my friends birthday and we were not dissappointed. From the moment we stepped through the door we felt special. We were shown to our table and the ambiance was amazing. The waitress brought us the cuts of meat and talked us through choices and recommended how to have it cooked too. We were not disappointed it was the most tasty, tender and succulent steak we've eaten. We had some of their specials cocktails too which were amazing. Highly recommend this for a special occasion if you want great good, fantastic surroundings and amazing cocktails. Prices were all extremely reasonable too for the quality. (You'd pay more in covent garden for no way near as good) Definately worth a visit if you like steak. "
    dined on 24/05/2014
  • "If you are looking for a great steak and a great setting visit Gaucho in Charlotte street. We had an amazing evening and will be going back soon"
    dined on 23/05/2014
  • "Beautiful steak. All the cuts are Argentinian and presented on a board before with thorough explanation and recommendations from the waiting staff. They were excellent, we had a perfect wine recommendation too and overall it was an excellent meal. Not the cheapest but for what you pay it is excellent quality and we definitely didnt leave feeling hungry!"
    dined on 20/05/2014
  • "Family celebration for 6. We met at the bar, as the last to arrive I was greeted at the door by the hostess who knew immediately where my party were, escorted to the table. Service at the dinner table was excellent, waitress explained different cuts of meat and on asking for wine recommendations was given two to try before ordering. Steaks were fabulous, as were the starters (no deserts eaten as much too full). Expensive but worth it for an occasion - would be very happy to return. "
    dined on 16/05/2014
  • "Very nice starters , scallops very good, but as soon as we finished them the plates where taken away and the mains appeared immediately! as though they were sitting on the hotplate waiting for us , coldish steak and warm chips is not good. we expect to have our food cooked fresh when we finish our starter which allows time to converse with our friends which is the reason for dinner out in the first place. service was good though."
    dined on 10/05/2014
  • "Went With friends. one of us had 40 year birthday I told the waiter on arrival and he make special desrt for him. Sergio Was very nice. Always nice to be at Gaucho. Thank You for a perfect evening. "

  • "Went there for a business lunch. Food was good and service attentive. Would recommend and will return."
    dined on 08/05/2014
  • "I booked Gaucho Charlotte street for a special family birthday. The food, ambience and service was excellent making our birthday girl feel very special. The ONLY slight issue was that we had booked a table for 8 and the round table we were given was a little snug for that number. "
    dined on 03/05/2014
  • "As you would expect the steak was amazing - probably the best I've ever eaten - but the experience was just a bit too stressful to be totally enjoyable. Our waiter was lovely and enthusiastic, but having the food explained at breakneck speed left us confused, and needing more time to study the menu. We just felt a bit pressurised by the waiting staff. The prawn ceviche was nice but I would have preferred ceviche made with white fish as I have eaten in South America. We did enjoy the meal but at these prices I'd like to feel I'd had a really fantastic night out in a more relaxed environment."
    dined on 03/05/2014
  • "I had previously been to Gaucho at Canary Wharf so I expected good things. Three of us had great steaks but one of our party was served a rib eye which was totally overcooked and, to be honest, it didn't even look like it was recently overcooked. Steak was replaced without quibble but brought back on a bare plate without vegetables (we had already shared vegetables before she realised steak was inedible) and my guest had to ask if they expected her to eat the meat by itself. Quickly remedied but would have expected the waiting staff to be on top of that. Spoilt what could have been an epic evening"
    dined on 03/05/2014
  • "Beautiful venue, decor and ambience. Food done to perfection. Friendly attentive staff. Only minor issue was it took a while to get the bill but in that environment it does not really matter. Would definitely go back."
    dined on 01/05/2014
  • "We enjoyed our first visit to Gaucho and overall the meal met expectations with one important exception....one of our steaks was impossible to eat. I had a fillet and it was great - my wife chose the "entrana fina" or "special cut" marbled skirt and she had to leave it. On reflection it was the wrong choice and I am not sure this cut warrants even being on the menu. The staff handled the situation really well and we can't fault the service we received. They offered to replace the steak but since I had over ordered with "a larger than my tummy" fillet we just shared that. The manager refunded the cost of the entrana fina and despite the problems we had a great night and would recommend you give it a try."
    dined on 30/04/2014
  • "Table booked for 9. Seated at 9.50, mains served at 11. Had to call waitress over to order mains. Wine glass was not clean. Steak wasn't cooked to my liking but didn't bother to send it back as we were already running 2 hours late. Just poor service all around. Our starters were not billed as a result of all of this but our evening had already been spoiled by then."
    dined on 26/04/2014
  • "Our first visit to Gaucho in Charlotte Street certainly didn't disappoint! The view that greets you as you are led down the winding staircase definitely has the 'wow' factor - the soft lighting, mirrors and cow hide seats create a really unusual and special effect. Food good, although my steak contained a very small amount of fat/gristle - taste was exquisite. Delicious steaks and Argentinian red wine make a very good combination. Was pleasantly surprised with the bill. Highly recommend "

  • "I love Gaucho Grill, been going for years its is always excellent and has never disappointed. If you like a good steak and chips this is the only place to go. "
    dined on 22/04/2014
  • "The steak was done very well as usual. However the food on that particular night was a tad salty. Water also took long to arrive and the waitress mixed up our orders resulting in mini-chaos/confusion at the table as various plates were laid down and then hurriedly taken away by someone else."
    dined on 19/04/2014
  • "We've been to quite a few of the Gaucho restaurants and this is definitely our favourite. The atmosphere is relaxing and very friendly. Love the free bits of bread at the beginning and the food is just delicious."
    dined on 04/04/2014
  • "Food was amazing. Service was great! Our waiter gave a great wine recommendation! Perfect evening. =)"
    dined on 03/04/2014
  • "Good ambience which is in line with other Gaucho restaurants. Quality of steak is good but not as the one at Swallow Street. Don't know why the quality of the bread, which I like most in Gaucho restaurants, is not so good nowadays. Texture has changed comparing to a year ago. Probably they use different material. In general Gaucho is a name for quality which I don't hesitate to re-visit."
    dined on 02/04/2014
  • "I don't know how they mange to have tasty succulent Argentinian steaks that melt in the mouth! But they do. A good ambience with an excellent choice of food with friendly and helpful staff."
