    Gaucho Charlotte Street has great atmosphere and service. The steaks are excellent as you would expect. However, the side dishes are tiny and lead to a feeling of being ripped off! for example a portion of sweet potato at £4.95, was literally one slice of potato.

    Gaucho is usually one of my favourites, but this time the service was terrible. We had many issues with the service, from sitting for 10-15 minutes before being offered a drink, having to chase down the wine list and to take our order, side dishes not arriving but being charged for it, and service with poor attitude. The prices are high enough that we should not have to put up with this.

    Very good service, and very good food. Very dark in the restaurant. It was not possible to read the menye without flashlight. Even the waitors were unable to read the menue. We thought it was a bit strange, but it was very friendly.

    The meal itself was excellent, but the venues lighting left a lot to be desired. The table that we sat at was so poorly lit that i had to use the torch on my mobile to read the menu and the wine list!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Fantastic steak although very expensive, starters were ok, chips not the best, service was attentive - quite quiet at lunchtime although nice vibe if you can cope with the bonkers monochrome environment - would go again with meat eaters as the steak is truly sublime and that's why you go there!

  • whats the point reserving a table?

    Dined on 1/11/2014
    Booked a 9pm table with you, got emails and calls to confirm it. Turn up 8:50. Sat down 9:45. Got a glass of champagne while we waited on the house but the organisation was a shambles of people waiting for tables , getting coats , asking about the table that was supposed to be ready in ten minutes 30 minutes later . we seemed to be ignored while we waited. No information about when the table would be ready - had to keep asking Rest of meal good - service and food, but waiting nearly an hour in the entrance put the dampers on the evening .

    Apart from the very little lighting, to the point where you would almost need a torch to see your food, the meal was excellent. Not the cheapest but all the dishes were of good quality ingredients. Would only recommend for a special occasion.

    I am a regular at Gaucho as love a good steak and the cheesy bread to start is always a delight. You can't go wrong with the wine and cocktail menu and even though I go there often I still love the staff showing the cuts of meat.

    Dined on 25/10/2014
    We had dinner on Saturday to celebrate my husband's 60th birthday. Our table wasn't ready when we arrived,we were eventually taken to the bar. Given cocktail menus then when we had decided no one came to take the order. Told our table was ready and we should now order at our table. Given a second set of cocktail menus then it took ten minutes for drinks order to be taken. Table was small for six people, food was fine but not as good as usual in the three other Gauchos we have visited. Rump steak was very tough and not well cooked. Prices very high for what we had. I'd told the restaurant it was my husband's birthday when they called to confirm and was told they would organise something to celebrate. Didn't happen....disappointing.

    The booking arrangements were faultless and the restaurant followed up very courteously to make sure I hadn't forgotten the booking. The food was excellent. However, the whole restaurant and bar area is excessively noisy. We had to shout all evening to hear each other. The problem is not so much the music, though that could be turned down a bit (and it's not up to much anyway), but the fact that there are no soft furnishings of any kind to absorb the general hubbub. This was quite a disappointment after my previous experience at Gaucho Chancery Lane. While the food was unquestionably very good, it is, equally unquestionably, very expensive. Overall, this was reasonable, though not good, value for money.

    Took a friend who was visiting London here. Loved the atmosphere, the décor, the food, the cocktails, the service. Everything was top notch. Food portions were great too as too often in these type of restaurants, you only get a tiny portion for the price they charge! It's great for a girly catch up or romantic meal. I personally wouldn't suggest a business meal here, unless it's with a familiar client as it's really quite noisy, probably due to the high ceilings and acoustics. Didn't bother us though. Will definitely come back and try another Gaucho.

    Dined on 10/10/2014
    Glitzy, glamourous and a little bit gaudy if we're honest, Gaucho Charlotte Street provided a buzzing, well crafted Bacchanalian feast of firey Argentinian surf and turf. The light, piquant ceviche is the perfect precursor to the hefty steaks served with zingy side dishes of french beans and chilli or rich earthy field mushrooms. Desserts were a bit disappointing. Wine list bemusing but you should be fine if you stick to Malbec or ask for a recommendation. Reassuringly expensive.

    9 of us went to Gaucho for a birthday meal. From when we entered we were greeting with smiles and a very professional service. The waitress was extremely knowledgeable about the vast menù choices and the wines or soft drinks that would accentuate the flavours. The dark mood lighting at 7:30pm helped by creating an excellent atmosphere for group bookings and romance dinners. My grumble would be the cost of the steak. Although advertised as an Argentine restaurant the steak sounded as though it is sourced from Scotland. So is the price justified?

    The whole night from start to finish was amazing, upon arrival a fantastic cocktail from the mixologist started the evening, after that we were taken to our table, the service was first class and the knowledge from service (Federico) was outstanding, along with the help from the wine director (Phil) I had an amazing malbec to accompany my superb 800g spiral cut rib eye. I am a meat eater amongst all meat eaters but found this far superior to Hawksmoor. I also went with a vegetarian who was not short of choice and had an incredible Monkfish plate which was bursting with flavour. I would recommend this to anyone, slightly pricey but if a special occasion definitely worth a visit.

    I sent my parents and in-laws here for my mother in law's 70th birthday. They had a superb time. They said that the service was great, the food was lovely and the atmosphere was relaxed. They particularly commented on how the staff seemed to enjoy what they were doing and how happy they all seemed! They made a fuss of my mother in law with a card and candles in the dessert. Thank you for making their visit so special!

    Had a really lovely meal at Gaucho Charlotte Street. The entrance and decor are sort of Gucci in the bling days, which makes for a glitzy evening. Food was excellent, steaks obviously, in interesting cuts, totally mouth-wateringly soft and full of flavour. Vegetables perfectly crisp too, although the chip were dire. Starters ok, but avoid the crab which even came in the shape of the tin it must've come out of. We sat on the balcony which was good as you could see everything on the main floor below, but without the excessive noise. Loads of emphasis on Argentina, but unfortunately most of the waiting staff had thick Eastern European accents so were indecipherable in the general noise. Food excellent, glitzy decor, poor waiting staff.

    Pleasant greeting at front door. Food and wine quality superb. Setting in keeping but a little noisy. Poor waiter service - long delay to take order, inflexible with vegetable order, did not clarify steak sizes (assumed all wanted the same), and abrupt, though did engage us in conversation. Went post theatre on a Friday night at 10.30 pm, had only a main course and was surprised to be the last to leave. Over-priced.

    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.
