Diner Reviews
  • "We love gaucho, not only is the food excellent but the service is of the highest quality. They cater for food intolerances. The staff are friendly and attentive and the restaurant has a nice atmosphere. Definitely worth the price tag, we will be coming back here again. Thank you #Gaucho Manchester"

  • "Lovely meal in a lovely venue with excellent service and good value. What more could you want to celebrate 4 birthdays."
    dined on 16/08/2014
  • "Food was excellent, completely worth the hype. Music was a bit loud, so I personally do not think it's suitable for a romantic night which was what I had planned, but I can imagine atmosphere being great had I gone with a group of friends. Service from the waiters could be a bit better for a restaurant of this calibre, but the head waiter was very warm/friendly and made up for it."

  • "We celebrated a birthday here last week. The good was amazing. The staff were very attentive and they even put a candle in the ice cream for us. Lovely evening. We will be back"

  • "Couldn't fault the food or Lydia, our waitress. The other members of staff ruined our evening. My dad was NOT acting like a drunken lout or out of order whatsoever, he was in no way "intoxicated" but the staff insisted on telling a 57 year old that they were "just Going to fill up his glass with water" and then upon his asking for a 4th beer, they brought shandy (still charged for beer). When leaving, my dad patted down his coat and the male waiter asked if he needed to call him a taxi - maybe just polite but given the rest of the evening, it did leave a bitter taste. This was he first time I'd seen my dad in a year and the start of his first holiday in 11 years. An embarrassing and disappointing start for him."

  • "Unbelievable service ! And the best steak we have ever had . Would recommend to anybody . It's a classy sophisticated restaurant decor to die for."

  • "The meal was lovely as usual the only down side being the amount of time we had to wait for our meals to arrive there didnt seem to have enough staff on duty ."
    dined on 09/08/2014
  • "We arrived at 9.00 on Saturday night - one barman on ! took 20 minutes to get our first drink. Food quality disappointing, had a the selection of 3 steaks, not good. Not cheap, but that would have been fine if it was good enough."

  • "Went to Gaucho Manchester to celebrate my son's 21st. As a venue for a special occasion this was perfect. My boys and I had steak (of course!) and my wife had the Gaucho burger. We started with the sausage platter for the table. We all loved everything we had! So, great food, great service and a great atmosphere...what more could we ask for?!"
    dined on 09/08/2014
  • "We arrived 5 mins early, we were told to get a drink at the bar . After a few minutes the bartender spilt some of a cocktail he was making all over my white shirt! But hey accidents happen however we then proceed to wait 30 mins after our booking time until we were shown our table ! After that the service and food was up to standard . If was just the poor service before that would make me 2nd guess returning"

  • "Food and service were excellent. There's also not many places in manchester that can compete with the venu as the surroundings and ambiance are outstanding. My only issue was the value for money element, for example the most reasonable bottle of wine was priced at £30+. The overall experience and quality of food was excellent and would certainly recommend it to all steak lovers."
    dined on 08/08/2014
  • "Being a regular visitor to the Gaucho on Charlotte Street in London, I was up in Manchester with a client and booked a table here. Food as always very good, service was not up to the usual standard though, staff seemed young and inexperienced, less attentive than what I have come to expect. Even my client commented, not ideal. food was good though"
    dined on 06/08/2014
  • "Service was great, food was varied, some great other stuff problematic. My partners had to send the start back twice, one because it was too spice ( no spice mentioned on the menu) and second time because it was undercooked."
    dined on 06/08/2014
  • " May be our waiter (D) needed to be given an anchor to enable him to stay next to the table longer than 2 sec at a time. The time span of his memory seems to be also very limited. Somehow, he was not interested in our answers to his questions. Our guest who had fish, was pleased with it; his wife received a tiny inedible piece of lamb . She asked for it to be well done and the chef May be read it like 'make the hardest item if it'. It would have been good as a self defence item if not the size of it. Total disrespect to ingredients, time and money. My stake was fine but not a memorable experiences, the 4th guest was upset with the service and lack of taste that would encourage a return."
    dined on 06/08/2014
  • "First time at Gauchos to celebrate a 30th wedding anniversary and it was very disappointing. The service was really good, friendly, attentive and helpful staff. The food was very poor. We chose the Gaucho sampler which was 4 select cuts of beef. I've never eaten fillet that was tough to cut and eat but this was. The other cuts were not much better. My wife couldn't eat much of the meal. The deserts were good but portions were very small. Given our experience the menu is way over priced."
    dined on 03/08/2014
  • "The food was fantastic and I couldn't fault it but despite booking a table, we still had to wait 45 minutes to be seated. To make things worse, people who turned up after us were seated before us. The booking system clearly doesn't work or perhaps we weren't important enough to deserve our booking. When I asked what the delay was I was advised our table wasn't ready. 45 minutes to make up a table for 2? Overall the food was perfect but we were made to feel like our custom wasn't wanted."
    dined on 02/08/2014
  • "Having been before we expected a similar enjoyable evening. Being charged £4.50 for a bottle of sparkling water did not impress especially in the way it was offered - seemingly like a free one. We had over an hour wait between starters and mains despite 2 attempts to have this sorted out. We appreciated the offer of a free bottle of wine but as we had spent so long waiting we had drunk the bottle we intended to have so needed to reorder to have a drink with the meal when it came. For somewhere that prides itself on the quality of the steaks they were poor and nothing like the quality we had had previously. Small things like not bringing sauces asked for also added to the general disappointment."

  • "I love visiting Gaucho, the food is amazing. Been there five times now and I cannot wait to go back."
    dined on 02/08/2014
  • "While I was served a good (not great) steak and a very interesting scallop dish in a buzzing atmosphere, Gaucho has the tired look of glamour that's been brushed up against once too many. An excess of faux cow-hide and leather cheapens the otherwise stunning building and, if you're a woman in a skirt, may leave bare skin stuck to your seat. I left wondering why they believe meat that's travelled 4500 miles (and some time) to reach my plate would be better than fresh and local?"
    dined on 30/07/2014
  • "Excellent fillet steak. Had the chateau briande. Starters a little on the expensive side and would have preferred more vegetable side choices but overall an excellent meal and service"
    dined on 29/07/2014
  • "We absolutely loved gaucho and will be back! The food was great and the music an atmosphere was amazing. The waiter wa very down to earth and attentive. I felt her section was a tad big for her but she was lovely and took the time to make us feel welcome. Loved it"
    dined on 26/07/2014
  • "Excellent quality ingredients, attentive staff, lively atmosphere. We will certainly return with our steak-loving son!"
    dined on 26/07/2014
  • "we had an amazing time at Gaucho, the steak is out of this world and the service was fantastic, Me and my girlfriend will be visiting again soon."

  • "My partner and I booked a late lunch -1430hrs. -Saturday 26th July We arrived at 1400hrs and sat and had a couple of cocktails to get us in the mood. We selected our food from the A la Carte menu. I had chateaubriand steak and Debbie has sirloin. With this we had broccoli spears and Sweet potato chips. Wow! the steaks are the best I have ever had. The sweet potato chips are superb as was the broccoli.. Treated ourselves to a decent bottle of Red ( 2006) and to top it off we had a trio of deserts each. Service was excellent, food was excellent, ambience was excellent. 12/10! Total bill for our meal £251!!! Not cheap but worth every penny Roy and Debbie , Runcorn, Cheshire."
    dined on 26/07/2014
  • "We were a little disappointed with the quality and presentation of the food. One would expect greater attention to the detail of the presentation. A piece of meat on a round white plate does not match the expectations of an Argentinian Steak house. I was also surprised with the fact t hat one has to pay an additional £3 for tablespoon of sauce. We have visited recently visited a Gaucho restaurant in Ho Chi Minh city where the quality of food and service is far superior. It is unlikely that we will return to the Gaucho restaurant."
    dined on 25/07/2014
  • "We go to Gasucho's a lot, probably too much! the service is always great and I do not think you can get a better steak in Manchester."
    dined on 23/07/2014
  • "Was recommended here by friends but unfortunately didn't fit standard! The filler steak was very tasteless, the peppercorn sauce was strange tasting! And there's not much choice for starters! Wouldnt recommend to anyone! Rosso is much nicer for both food and drink!"
    dined on 19/07/2014
  • "Expensive but the steaks are delicious. The downside was we had to ask about four waiters if our table was ready as they had just left us waiting in the bar area. Eventually they came to us and took us to our table half an hour later. Table booked for 6pm but didn't sit down untl 6.30pm. Food was definitely worth the wait though! A very nice restaurant for a special occasion."
    dined on 19/07/2014
  • "My friend and I arrived 5 minutes prior to our reservation time and were told our table wasn't quite ready. We were seated in the bar and told someone would be over to take our drinks order. 30 minutes later we were still waiting without our drinks order having been taken. We mentioned this to the manager when she came to take us to our table. She was very apologetic and gave us our drinks on the house. Both her and our waitress were lovely, and rescued what was turning into a disappointing evening. The food was lovely and the drinks menu comprehensive."
    dined on 12/07/2014
  • "Service and ambience very good, nice atmosphere. Gorgeous inertia design unfortunately food did not match, for a stake house that projects itself as excellent the meat was poor, chewy and not as expected from the prices. Nothing special, I can get better steak in my local pub. My green beans and spinach were too salty and full of garlic same as tomato salad. Menu look impressive but just didn't deliver, I would say that on the paper everything looks amazing but in practices something was lacking Overall we had great night, winos and champagne list excellent , service superb just a food was a let down. Would go back in the future just to check if the food improved."

  • "We went here for our first anniversary and i was super pleased with our choice. We had this place recommended by some friends of ours. We will without doubt be returning."
    dined on 12/07/2014
  • "The service staff were friendly, smiling, knowledgable, attentive but not overbearing. The food was right up there in the best ever steak I've eaten list. Each mouthful as tasty and delicious as the last, to the final mouthful. The only way in which the experience would be better would have been to have had some delightful company to share it. That's on me though. Would not hesitate to recommend to others."
    dined on 12/07/2014
  • "We had a fabulous evening. The service was fantastic and the food and was delicious. We went to celebrate my husband's birthday, it did not disappoint."
    dined on 05/07/2014
  • "We waited over 30mins for our table and although we were a little late in arrive ourselves when our table was finally ready and I mentioned a couple had been waiting longer they said it went off original booking time anyway so was probs a good thing we were late. Food was ok but overpriced and we ended up not having desert as they took to long to come and get our order. We went for my mams birthday and it was overall a poor experience"
