    All in the family enjoyed their food from grandparents (65+) to the grandchildren (20+). We had a cosy table for all 7 of us. The Churrasco was wonderful and the cheeses after was to die for.

    First time at Gaucho and was extremely impressed with both the food and service. My girlfriend and I both had the chorizo starter which was excellent (pretty big starter though if that's a problem). For mains I had the rib eye whilst my girlfriend had the Churrasco de Lomo, with some sides to share. Both were beautiful cuts of meat cooked to absolute perfection, and the sides were also fantastic. Both agreed afterwards it was the best steak we'd ever had. The service at Gaucho is also excellent, staff are attentive and knowledgeable without being pushy or over-bearing. Would say it's on the expensive side for a meal but felt it's definitely worth it and can't wait to go again!

    It was my parents anniversary and these guys were great making bit special with a card. Also my new phew was there and only 3. There was no kids menus but they were more than happy to accommodate his requests for a burger. We dinned at 5 when it was very quiet which was excellent for us having a 3 year old so as not to disturbs other dinners. Everyone loved the food and the service was excellent

    The steak was too good for words and were the best our party of 4 have ever eaten. Sergio our waiter was excellent and explained everything in great detail. Strangely, if I returned, I would hardly bother with any side orders-just the steak was enough. Little wonder there were no steak knives on the table-a butter knife would have sufficed. The only criticism would be (as a resident Yorkshireman) it wasn't cheap but of you want the best...........

    My experience of Gauchos did not live up to the expectation I had. Don't get me wrong the food was nice and the service was good but it was nothing out of the ordinary for what you are paying for. I have been to Buenos Aires which is in Reigate, Surrey and the food and service was incomparable. The sides at Gauchos were served the same as you would get in any restaurant and not particularly nice, all very greasy! Buenos Aires, I could not fault it was amazing down to every bite, the sides were perfectly done. The service was great they were so attentive. Gauchos we found ourselves looking up a lot waiting for someone to come over to us. Gauchos cost us £140 for 2 of us and Buenos Aires cost us £115. I much prefer Buenos Aires!

    We went to Gaucho for our anniversary. The decor of the restaurant is outstanding level, and the atmosphere is so romantic. The service is so brilliant as well as the food. It is quite expensive if you open a good wine, but the other's price is reasonable. Will definitely come back.

    I've eaten at this restaurant numerous times and I'm sure it keeps getting better. This was a visit with my parents to celebrate my Father's birthday, and it didn't disappoint. The service is brilliant, lovely staff throughout who are knowledgable about both the food and wine, attentive, and utterly professional. The food is consistently amazing, the steaks are sublime. It might sound obvious, but if you have a vegetarian in your party I'd seriously consider looking elsewhere, this is a carnivore paradise.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.
