Diner Reviews
  • "This was my third visit to Gaucho. I was taking a new partner for the first time and I had spoken very highly of the place based on my two previous visits. The food was good but somehow I felt not at the same level as before. The complimentary breads were delicious and the starters also good (I had the scallops which were perfectly cooked). However my bife de lomo, which I ordered medium rare, was more medium (no pink inside) and way too salty. My partner's rump steak was very tasty though. We shared a cheesecake for dessert which although nice, was nothing especial. The service was good to start with but towards the end of the meal we struggled to get the waitress attention and took ages to get the order for dessert and then the bill."

  • "From the time of booking and throughout the meal, the service we received was outstanding, the food was high quality and the wine was excellent. A bit pricey for me to use weekly but I'll definitely use again for special occasions."

  • "We were highly impressed with every aspect of this restaurant. The manageress came over and introduced herself to us, we got fantastic advice on wine pairings and our food was divine. Overall a super night with the best service we have received in a restaurant at home and abroad in literally years."

  • "When a restaurant knows what sauce you like before you've ordered (custom horse radish and peppercorn) it's the very definition of anticipated service! It's my favourite place by a mile."

  • "It was a special occasion for me & my husband, It was our wedding anniversary. I cannot fault the experience. We were given complimentary drinks to help celebrate our anniversary. The knowledge of the waiter was very impressive. He was exceptionally polite. We chose your restaurant because of the steaks. It was highly recommended. The actual night was brilliant."

  • "Dinned at Gaucho alone last week whilst on a business trip to Leeds. I was flying back to London so wanted to get dinner in before flying back. Gaucho well and truly delivered wit slick but friendly service and food par excellence. Steaks cooked to perfection. I can remcommend the rib eye medallions mouth wateringly good when rare. The desserts was 5 star! A soured cream panna cotta with loacl strawberry and raspberry compote with basil and toasted coriander. Really inspired combination with excellent range of wines too. i'll be back soon!"

  • "This was our second visit. We ordered the tender flank marinated in herbs and garlic. My partner had a trio of different steak cuts. All cooked perfectly. The steak is amazing. I don't want to eat steak anywhere else now. We had sides of salad, fries, potato salad, some sauces. It's was all delicious. David our waiter was fab, making recommendations depending on the way you prefer your steak cooked. I also had a delicious cocktail, I ordered my usual Long Island ice tea but the waitress recommended a Hollywood version topped up with Prosecco equivalent. It was strong and lovely. A super visit."

  • "Excellent service from front of house on initial arrival. Great ambience in bar area and restaurant. Waitress was excellent and food to die for. A great treat that I will be returning to."

  • "I was worried about how pricey the menu appears but it's definitely worth it. Food and service were both outstanding! It was a little quiet inside but I suppose that just meant we relieves more attention as a group. It would probbly be busier on evening service too as we dined at 3.30. I relieved a free cocktail as it was my graduation day which was a good touch. The staff were all super friendly and happy to help with the menu which is slightly wordy! I'm also a non meat eater but the menu caters for all tastes and my fishes dishes were excellent."

  • "Superb service from Harry our waiter, encouraged us to try and different type of steak than we would normally and it was excellent! Ate with my wife and son, on my wife's birthday early, mid-week."

  • "Good location, restaurant decor provided a great ambience. Service was very good. Food delicious, steak was cooked to perfection as I would expect for a steak house. One minor let down there was too much salt on the steak, chips, sauce & side order. We do like lots of seasoning, especially on red meat, but this was too much, which meant we couldn't finish the food despite our best efforts. Price of food's high but worth it for good quality produce. The wine and drinks menu were far too expensive with the wine list starting at £35 a bottle. Our waiter recommended his favourite wine at £107, which we politely declined! The wine we chose was very good, which you would expect for £37, although you can buy the same wine at £9 a bottle elsewhere!"

  • "Have visited Gaucho several times,mainly in London but also Leeds and Manchester Always good for steaks and unusual desserts Service attentive but patronising,maybe because getting on in years.....not senile yet though"
    dined on 11/07/2014
  • "GOOD STEAK. VERY YUMMY AND DELICOUS. THANKS EVERYONE!!"
    dined on 07/07/2014
  • "This was our second visit to the restaurant, we were not disappointed. Like on our first visit the food was amazing, I had cod with pink grapefruit which although it seems like an unusual combination was a meal I would definitely recommend. The service from all members of staff was impeccable and out waiter was very knowledgeable about the cuts of meat and gave advice to the others on my group on how to have their steak cooked. We will definitely visit Gaucho again when we are in Leeds again and recommend it to others."
    dined on 05/07/2014
  • "We walked past 3 times before we saw the signage in the windows and realised that Gauchos is actually a basement restaurant. It was a lovely gesture to receive a complimentary glass of bubbles and a polite "Happy Birthday" to my partner as we waited for our table. Unfortunately it is just slightly too dark in there to actually be able to read a menu! One guy used his mobile as a book light - we took turns with the tea light on the table! Steaks were very good - we'd have been disappointed if they weren't because the restaurant staff never stopped raving about them! They were also very expensive - a 2 course meal for two with some bottled water, one bottle of red wine, coffees and truffles came to almost £150.00 before a tip!"
    dined on 05/07/2014
  • "We went to Gauchos on a busy Tour de France weekend for the first time. This did not affect the experience whatsoever. Our friends chose the Chataubriand which was perfectly cooked and very tasty as was myself and my husbands sirloin. The ambiance was really good and the surroundings fabulous, although a little dark to read the menu for myself. The steaks were brought out to be able to choose a cut and size which was very helpful, and the waitress was very knowledgable. We will definately return to Gauchos !"
    dined on 05/07/2014
  • "Very nice restaurant with impeccable service, truly 5 star service, the staff are sensational Food was very good, my steak was a little too fatty for my liking and my wife`s steak was overdone, but presented really well. Will order a different cut next time, down side is the wine is very expensive and only Argentinian, a better choice would mean they sell more ! I know its an Argentinian restaurant, but other restaurants we go to offer wines that are not specific to their country of origin. Overall, very nice, been here 3 times before, will go again , but will not be my first choice steak restaurant."
    dined on 05/07/2014
  • "Excellent food and you get what you pay for. I would recommend this restaurant as long as you have a good sized wallet."

  • "Had a wonderful meal to celebrate our wedding anniversary. All staff were communicative and helpful in all areas.

We have been before and will definitely be back again."

  • "I have been to this restaurant now on numerous occasions and the service is always excellent, the food is always visually appealing and exquisite, and the atmosphere is always right."
    dined on 27/06/2014
  • "the food is incredibly good, our server was phenomenal and really knew a lot about the food however the music was awfull. It ruined the atmosphere and was ridiculously loud. I would strongly question the decor aswell, it felt like I was walking into an upmarket brothel with all the cow print on the wall. They were the only things that let it down but it unfortunately made a bit of a lasting impression on me. I am new to the leeds area and absolutely adore the food however if i do stumble across a restaurant that is on par with Gaucho for the meat I would strongly consider going there instead, unfortunately for me a great food experience was kind of ruined."
    dined on 27/06/2014
  • "Wanted to go to somewhere we hadn't been before for a special meal and so chose this restaurant after reading the reviews. This restaurant is a must, we had mentioned when booking via open table that it was our wedding anniversary and were instantly congratulated as soon as we gave our name, a lovely touch. Our waiter Rob was exceptional and looked after our every need. Whilst we picked this restaurant for a special occasion we will now be finding lots of excuses to go back as the food was delicious."
    dined on 24/06/2014

  • "The food was nice enough but a bit lacking. However, the service was impeccable. I forgot the waiters name, he was a student & he was brilliant. He was working on Fathers Day 15/06 and he definitely deserves to get promoted! Great waiter. His service was faultless!"
    dined on 15/06/2014
  • "The best selection of steaks I've ever seen. For anyone who is unsure of them the waiter will talk you through them and how they are best served. the food is beautifully cooked and nicely presented"

  • "This place just gets better and better. It's a real treat to go and a lovely end to a weekend. Service is nothing less than exemplary. "
    dined on 01/06/2014
  • "I booked Gaucho's as a special treat for my husband for his birthday and we had an amazing time. The manager (Amy, I think) called me prior to the meal to ask if there was any special drink or treat my husband liked and I let her know that we loved champagne cocktails. We were taken to the bar on arrival and served two special champagne cocktails that I had requested which weren't even on the drinks menu. We then had a fabulous meal and received additional portions of sides and sauces with our steaks. The whole night was amazing and made my husbands birthday really special. We've been to Gaucho's before on Valentine's Day and it was great then but this time was better still!"
