Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "Very friendly service, good food and a great atmosphere. Especially recommend the cerviches to start, and of course the steaks are excellent."
    dined on 22/07/2014
  • "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."

  • "Went to Goucho with a friend. Steak was lovely, service was good. Would go again"
    dined on 15/07/2014
  • "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!"
    dined on 10/07/2014
  • "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!"
    dined on 26/06/2014
  • "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."
    dined on 26/06/2014
  • "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"
    dined on 22/06/2014
  • "Excellent steak. Great service. Nightclub style décor and musak a bit disconcerting, but worth it nevertheless."
    dined on 15/06/2014
  • "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."
    dined on 30/05/2014
  • "Took a few clients for lunch, the wine was fantastic and a great afternoon was had by all."
    dined on 30/05/2014
  • "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"
    dined on 28/05/2014
  • "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! "
    dined on 24/05/2014
  • "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!"
    dined on 24/05/2014
  • "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!"

  • "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. "
    dined on 08/05/2014
  • "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"
