Diner Reviews
  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "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 !"

  • "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."

  • "Had a wonderful meal to celebrate our wedding anniversary. All staff were communicative and helpful in all areas. The menu was explained to us very clearly and we also received some excellent advice on the wine menu. Our waiter was attentive and very polite. Tremendous time enjoyed. 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."

  • "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!"

  • "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!"
    dined on 29/05/2014
  • "The meal was excellent - really good food and exceptional service. It was to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary and it was really successful."
    dined on 25/05/2014
  • "Went here on a Saturday evening for our 8th wedding anniversary. I'd booked the table a few weeks in advance and mentioned on the booking that it was to celebrate our 8th wedding anniversary. From the moment we walked in everybody we encountered made sure to wish us a happy anniversary, a very nice touch. Amie, the Managing Partner, came over a few minutes after we were seated to to introduce herself and offer some complementary margarita cocktails that tied in with our anniversary (salt), again, a nice touch. The food was delicious with both my wife & I opting for a dish that gave a sample of 3 differing cuts of steak. Wine choice was extensive and the one we choose was spot on. Overall a lovely evening with excellent service. Thanks."

  • "Came for my partner's birthday, surprised us with a glass of champagne, front of house was so friendly, and the waiter explaining the cuts of beef, such a nice, smiley man It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience from start to finish, even though it was a little pricey :) Next time we're celebrating we'll be back - & we will recommend you - as you were to us. Thank you :) "

  • "If you are wanting steak Gaucho Leeds is the place to go, an an amazing atmospheres and great food to go with it. Which it why is its undoubtedly one of "the" places to go in Leeds! Staff are very attentive and the décor is funky and fresh. We had a great night and left feeling like we had been treated to something special. Would recommend this restaurant every time, 5 Star all round and can't wait for the next visit!"
    dined on 02/05/2014
  • "My 2nd visit to Gaucho Leeds and again not disappointed with the food ,quite simply the best steak I have ever had. "Amazing" was how my partner described it. Unfortunately service was not as good. Table booked for 8pm we arrived 5 minutes prior and were ushered into the bar area (as was everyone who entered after us)while the table was prepared ,20 minutes later we finally got seated which was strange as it was only half full. Very helpful staff with the menu's etc , then waited over 20minutes for our drinks. We did receive complimentary chocolates as an apology for the delay. Cannot fault the food as it's exceptional and would recommend any steak lover to go to Gaucho and would go myself again as I'm sure the drinks mix up was a one off."

This is my favourite leeds restaurant. I also love the attention to detail from calling to check your reservation to the standard of service. "

  • "The setting is fabulous and is a real wow factor as you come into the restaurant. The cocktail menu is extensive and they were able to make up non alcoholic options as I was driving. The food was fabulous and the staff very knowledgeable although the scallops in particular were very pricey. "
