Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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"

  • "Have been several times and until the last visit it was bang on. Unfortunately this last visit was less than perfect. It was for my wife's birthday and all the organised things for the meal (prebooked cocktails and birthday plate ) were missed out! I have complained and you will find that Gauchos welcome feedback as they strive to be the best. Their response has been swift and has offset our disappointed at the last visit."

  • "Dinner with my friend, enjoy the steak very much. The place is comfortable and nice. Would be go there again."
    dined on 27/06/2014
  • "Lovely restaurant. It was more expensive than we usually pay but it was a special occasion. The service was excellent. Our waiter was really helpful and explained all the cuts of meat and cooking options. When it came the steak was delicious BUT it was served with frozen chips - or should I say french fries. This was the only thing that let the meal down. The truffle desert was delicious. The different toppings gave variety."

  • "I was treated to a meal here by a friend. We found the overall experience to be great...this might be the best restaurant I have ever been to. The food was perfect...even the free starter of bread and butter was the best bread I've ever had. The staff were polite and respectable"

  • "Nice food just spoilt tonight by lack of service on this visit"
    dined on 21/06/2014
  • "Had a dinner for two here on the weekend. Unfortunately we we're put next to a large group who were quite loud. This didn't, however, affect everything else. The service and food were excellent. Would definitely go again."
    dined on 21/06/2014
  • "Visited for a birthday meal for my partner following recommendations by friends. Meals were excellent and the staff knowledgeable and attentive without being obtrusive. Would certainly visit the restaurant again. The scallop starter was excellent and our ribeye steaks probably some of the best quality steaks we have ever eaten in a restaurant. Only slight niggle was that the glasses of champagne pre-dinner were cool rather than properly chilled which at £12.75 a glass is disappointing.."
    dined on 21/06/2014
  • "Food was beautiful, and the service was absolutely great lead by our waiter for the evening - Pete. As much as we both loved the steak, the bread is incredible!!"

  • "A Father's Day treat my 82 year old father was treated like royalty. Excellent food and wonderful service"
    dined on 14/06/2014
  • "I have been to Gaucho on several occassions in the past several years but I have to say my last visit on 14th of June will be my last one. The service was terrible and painfully slow, the food was not of exceptional quality (considering the price), the ambiant was not as I hoped as this booking was meant to be for a romantic meal for my husband's birthday which I had specified when I originally booked the table but to my shock, we were sat at a table next to a family with children!! my chair was wobbly and our table was too small and cramp! Our steaks were not cooked to our expectation and overall we were both extremely disappointed! The worse £122 ever spent on a meal! :-("
    dined on 14/06/2014
  • "Poor food quality. Cooked my steak medium when I asked for rare, and my Mothers was blue when she asked for medium. The meat was not left to rest after cooking and there was blood all over my plate. Not things I would expect from a steak restaurant. The service was good."
    dined on 14/06/2014
  • "This was our 3rd visit to Gaucho but the 1st with friends. The first two times we were seated down the side, meaning we were almost sat with the couples on the next tables as they were far too close for comfort! This time the dining experience was good but the prices are absolutely ridiculous! Over £17 for a starter of 3 small scallops! How on earth can they justify charging that!. £5 sides & ,£45 for a sirloin steak - it's been marinated overnight! We ordered 3 fillet steaks, 2 medium and 1 med/well. All 3 were well done. Not too much of a problem because they were actually nice but you'd expect for that price your steaks would be cooked to perfection. We won't be going again. There are restaurants just as nice that are far better value."
    dined on 14/06/2014
  • "Went to Gaucho's for an evening meal following the visit to the theatre. My wife and I just wanted a quality piece of beef, nothing fancy but good old-fashioned steak and chips! Keep it brief! Drinks expensive £5 for half a pint of beer, £5 for an orange juice. Nice bottle of Malbec £75. Service, started off excellent once the restaurant got busy we got forgotten! Food, fantastic steak absolutely delicious excellent quality of produce and certainly worth the money. Decor, restaurants now starting to look tired and the reception area dare I say it, was grubby! Overall experience, ibitter, sweet! Poor value with regards to drinks etc but fantastic beef, which is why we went in the 1st place"

  • "Had a really good meal and experience at gaucho 2pm visit so was fairly quiet. But still lovely ambience. o. Quality food, service, atmosphere"
    dined on 14/06/2014
  • "Service was excellent with attentive but not intrusive staff, sadly to food was just ok, my steak and the veg that came with it were Luke warm. Prices also on the dear side"
    dined on 13/06/2014
  • "We had a lovely lunch and all enjoyed it. The meet and greet staff were very pleasant and the waiting staff excellent. We would most certainly visit the Gaucho again, whether it was a special occasion or not. They brought on the birthday case with a flourish and treated the birthday "boy" to a drink on the house."
    dined on 08/06/2014
  • "Food was delicious, service was great and atmosphere was awsome. Steaks were cooked next to tables but not even a hint of smell reached to us- suggesting ventilation system is very good. Definiately will return next time."
    dined on 03/06/2014
  • "The best steak is town by far!!! Will go again if I could afford it but u defo get value for money due to the quality "
    dined on 01/06/2014
  • "We herd a lot of hype about how great it was, wish we had ignored it! We were expecting it to be expensive so we're not surprised but what did surprise us was the lack of flavour from the starters! The venue is amazing to be trendy and had dance music playing (god knows why I'd have preferred some traditional more calming music) I had a chorizo which was tasteless and my wife had scallops which were average certainly not a £17 starter, the fillet steak was good but we had it rare and it was a bit over done for my liking I would order it blue if I had it again. The side sauce was very tasty on the plus side. The tomato salad was a bowl of tomatoes and the fries came in a small portion. The service was excellent - overall it disappointed "

  • "We had heard really good things about Gaucho Manchester, so we decided to travel all the way from Sheffield to try it. We weren't disappointed! The food was fantastic - the best steak we've ever had! The service was second to none and I'd go as far to say that the waitress we had gave us the best service we have ever had. Unfortunately I can't remember her name but she's an asset to the restaurant. The decor inside the restaurant is fabulous and it's great how you can watch the chefs cooking in the kitchen. It was expensive, but you get what you pay for. Highly recommended 5*. Hayley Frost "

    dined on 24/05/2014
  • "First impressions, very smart and cool restaurant. Our server was extremely efficient and attentive. However the starter selection was limited and steaks were overpriced for what they were. It was nice to get some breads to pick at whole we waited or our meal. As I needed my steak well done due to being pregnant, I was advised to get the sirloin or fillet and decided on the sirloin. At nearly £30 just for the meat I expected a lot more flavour wise and it was very tough. My husband went for the fillet at nearly £50. He said it was nice but it was definitely not the best he'd ever had. Two steaks with four shared sides a shared dessert and three drinks came to £116. Over priced in my opinion. I wouldn't rush back. "
    dined on 24/05/2014
  • "Really enjoyed the whole experience but felt that it was slightly over priced. Two starters and two steak with chips (if you wanted extra you had to pay for it!) one shared dessert, one glass of wine and three mojitos, after tip £190 for two people. We've paid about the same at some Michelin star restaurants."
    dined on 23/05/2014
  • "Very interesting interior, converted from a Methodist church, spoilt on slightly by loud jarring music. Very friendly and very knowledgeable waiter who guided us very well through food and wine choices. Food was all first class, including the steaks for which this restaurant is know. Full of flavor and cooked exactly to order. Great wine list, reasonably priced with a lot of unusual Argentinian wines."
