Diner Reviews
  • "I can just recommend this restaurant. The food is always delicious and the service perfect."
    dined on 15/07/2014
  • "My wife and I eat here regularly, some of the waiters are excellent, my most recent was a little slow in bringing drinks and there is nothing worse then eating dinner without a drink. I may be fussy but I like a new drink just as mine is emptied and at the prices charged this little extra attention to detail is not too much to ask. Food excellent as usual."
    dined on 11/07/2014
  • "Overall. It was an outstanding evening. The staff are so welcoming and they look after you through out the evening and the food is wow its perfect. I had steak and i have it cooked medium rare it was so tender so perfect."
    dined on 05/07/2014
  • "Very expensive restaurant. Steaks were ok but not excellent. Fillet had a big bit of gristle in it but waitress barely raised an eyebrow when this pointed out to her. For a £35 main course without sides, not really good enough. Chips were lacklustre and lukewarm; we spent £18 on sides alone which sounds greedy but given portion sizes really isn't."
    dined on 05/07/2014
  • "The service is top notch and the waiters very attentive. The best thing of all though is the steak - perfectly cooked and seasoned - just a delight to eat. Great ambiance adds to the overall experience. We were a bit near to the door to the outdoor area which was a bit drafty, but our waiter immediately moved us on request. Couldn't fault the restaurant in any way. Highly recommended!"

  • "Took my friend for birthday lunch and I must say we both were not disappointed! All was 10/10 (service, food) Would defo go back there."
    dined on 26/06/2014
  • "Lovely lunch for my Nan's surprise birthday, the manager was a very kind and gave her a glass of wine on the house"
    dined on 19/06/2014
  • "The service was great. We had a lovely waitress but unfortunately I can't remember her name. A good presentation of the meat. Very good meat. Would have liked to get some veggies included though. A bit pricey."
    dined on 14/06/2014
  • "Three things stand out about Gaucho. The bread. Its excellent, especially the cheese bread. Its replenished without request. Good bread usually means good food. The service. Its superb. Friendly, efficient, and they don't charge for it. So guess what...they get a tip, This approach could catch on! Oh, and finally, the steak is superb. Best I've had in London. I will be back. "
    dined on 07/06/2014
  • "Food was good but the service was not up yo scratch. Non attentive had to regularly ask to order food even had to ask to see the steak board as we had been before. So knew what to expect. Even though we were waiting for others we were sat at our table and given menus. Will not go back to hamsptead, it was good regents street was much better as would not go back to gaucho."
    dined on 05/06/2014
  • "Excellent food and fantastic service, the two staples of an amazing restaurant experience. Melt in the mouth steaks (no serrated knives required as it slices like butter!). Our waiter was clearly passionate about the food and drink he served, he ensured we had a clear understanding of our options and recommended the perfect things based on what we told him. "
    dined on 04/06/2014
  • "very good and high quality ingredients and great flavours"
    dined on 01/06/2014
  • "A lovely place to get dressed up for enjoy some steak and wine. The ambience definitely matches up to the name. "
    dined on 31/05/2014
  • "The Gaucho chain is ever reliable and the Hampstead restaurant is no exception. Great food, great wine and great service. Not sure what else I could ask for!"
    dined on 26/05/2014
  • "Steak & veg were over salted and abit stringey. Nice atmosphere. Great service. Wouldn't return though - think its abit over rated."
    dined on 24/05/2014
  • "Thoroughly enjoyable evening, started with some cocktails that were recommended by a helpful member of staff. Everything that followed maintened a very high standard, the food was lovely! Finally I'd like to highlight the great staff service, everyone we came across was very polite & helpful. "
    dined on 24/05/2014
  • "Food is outstanding. Steak is always perfectly cooked and of top quality! Only issue would be you are made to feel a little rushed. Quick bite yes, a nice quiet romantic meal to talk...no! "
    dined on 24/05/2014
  • "Was pleasantly greeted by very well presented staff. Everyone looked very professional and we were shown to our seats. Restaurant was very tastefully decorated and not too formal. Steaks were very good albeit a bit expensive. Sides were ok but not a lot of choice. They didn't have a mixed salad as such, no lettuce! and the tomato salad had red and green tomatoes, couldn't eat the green, not ripe enough! Not many sides to choose from but the corn dish was unusual and very nice. Desserts were nice with unusual presentation. Wine was a bit pricey, average £30 per bottle. Overall very pleasant evening but quite expensive."
    dined on 17/05/2014
  • "The food was excellent, the service was friendly, attentive, knowledgeable, the wine choice was mostly expensive, but the music was intrusive, loud, electronica-monotone bilge which, based on the age of the other people eating, can only have been chosen to keep the staff happy. We complained, and were told (I'm sure truthfully) that particularly on Saturday nights (we were there on Wednesday) it was even louder! The Manager was not on site, and so we told our waiter the food was good, but that we would not be returning. It would be very helpful when choosing restaurants to be told the kind and level of "background" music being played. It can easily take over."
    dined on 14/05/2014
  • "Ate here for the first time on Saturday night. The ambience is surprisingly trendy and lively given the setting in the middle of Hampstead. Our table wasn't quite ready on arrival and the scene was a little chaotic but we were shown to our table before too long. The food was excellent - so long as you're looking for steak - but you certainly pay for the quality. Will definitely revisit in a while. "
    dined on 03/05/2014
  • "Food is absolutely amazing. Can not get a better steak on London Service is amazing!"
    dined on 25/04/2014
  • "Great steaks and great service. Might be a little pricey but it is worth it. And try the amazing argentine wines."
    dined on 20/04/2014
  • "The meat in Gaucho is really amazing, perfectly cooked, incredibly tender and very tasty. When you love meat you really have to dine there. The place is nice (maybe a little bit too dark inside), good service. The only criticism: the size of the table for 4 people, rather small."
    dined on 12/04/2014
  • "All the staff made us feel very welcome,the service, food, wine and ambience were a all excellent. I particularly enjoyed the smell of wood fire and cooking meat. We will return again and again."
    dined on 11/04/2014
  • "I have frequented Gaucho restaurants many times in the last 10 years mainly in Broadgate, Canary Wharf and Piccadilly. However, this was my first time in the Hampstead branch. The biggest issue was the cold breeze coming from the outside through the open door, my partner mentioned this to the waiter but he said the door needed to be open for the service to the outside tables. Things got worse when smoke from the outside fire started blowing in through the open door. By the end of the evening my eyes were burning and my suit (luckily not expensive) smelt heavily of smoke. The waiter service was to a good standard but the food was ordinary. I recommend STK, Goodman and Hawksmoor instead of Gaucho for choice of menu and quality of the food."
    dined on 05/04/2014
  • "very good steaks indeed. one of the best i've eaten. service was excellent. would highly recommend it again and again!!"
    dined on 05/04/2014
  • "Sometimes its worth paying a bit more for a good steak, and you get terrific steaks at Gaucho. Service is always excellent - attentive without being intrusive. We love it here, but the price does make it a special occasion place for us."
    dined on 30/03/2014
  • "My first time to Gaucho after hearing a lot of rave reviews and I have to say they didn't disappoint! I had had my braces tightened the day before so was in the mood for some really delicious tender food. After being talked through the options I was recommended the perfect option, with a good accompaniment. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone and will be going back again!"
    dined on 29/03/2014
  • "Service very ridiculously bad! Not enough staff, over crowded, waiting area was right by our table and the waiting area was far too crowded. We had people standing around our table. The bill came and there were 6 items on the bill which we did not order. Sent the bill away and it came back still with an item which we did not order, even after we highlighted which once we did not order. Shame on you Gaucho, you use to be SO good."
    dined on 29/03/2014
  • "This was one of the best steaks I have had in London. Great quality beef and cooked perfectly. Will definitly be back."
    dined on 22/03/2014
  • "Because it was saturday, the service was clearly not as good. Unfortunately the food was not with the normal quality Tends to be an excellent restaurant but guess this time we were unlucky."
    dined on 22/03/2014
  • "We frequent Gaucho Hampstead often and always love the atmosphere and food. I didn't go for steak this time, but instead ordered chorizo and prawns. I did expect the king prawns to be larger, so was a bit disappointed, but the taste was there and our waiter (sorry not sure what his name is, Brazilian man) was absolutely fantastic!!"
    dined on 19/03/2014
  • "Step-free entrance - didn't check out loo. Cryptic comment: if you can't get a seat at Dans le Noir, you'd be nearly as well catered for at Gaucho's...."
    dined on 15/03/2014
  • "Service was very slow- we waited 15 minutes for the bill (and asked twice) and in the end stood up to pay at the bar, only to be told we couldn't so ended up paying in the middle of the restaurant floor. Food was good but overpriced."
    dined on 14/03/2014
  • "I had high expectations. The food was very average. My wife steak was overcooked and it was not hot. I picked the gaucho tasting plate and ended up with free cheap bits of steak. We had one course and it was over £100."
    dined on 10/03/2014
  • "Gaucho didn't dissapoint, the food was great and the service provided by the waiter was execellent. You really do get what you pay for!"
    dined on 08/03/2014
  • "This is a execellent restaurant staff are very good. Nothing is to much trouble for them ."
    dined on 08/03/2014
  • "Gaucho was amazing as usual the food was brilliant. Cocktails weren't the best and it is quite dark inside"
    dined on 28/02/2014
  • "First time eaten at Gaucho, the food was fantastic. Good choice of wines, fairly priced and also very good. Amazing desserts. Steak really good, lots of sides to choose from. Very buzzy atmosphere, slightly too dark would be my only criticism, very good waiting on tables, very attentive. Need to book in advance at weekends."
    dined on 22/02/2014
  • "Clearly the owners of Gaucho Hampstead have thought through the complete dining experience. Buzzing atmosphere. Fast brilliant friendly service. Outstanding meal. What topped the night was the outdoor area. Great to sit there and relax after the meal with a brandy. Big open fire and blankets to keep you warm. I was on a first date, needless to say, she was very impressed. Thanks to all at Gaucho. Outstanding!!!!!"
