    Gaucho is normally a fail safe dinner option but not this time. Food not up to standard: tough steak, over cooked sides, underwhelming desserts. Loud dated music made it feel like a 90's nightclub. Only good thing was the service front of house and the sparkly floor of the bar and loos!

    Really good food and service, but defeneatly a party restaurant. The music was SO very loud that we couldn't have a conversation without screaming to each other. We asked them to lower the music, which they did two times, but after 10 minutes they took it back up. Unfortunately it felt really good to leave the restaurant because of this, and we are usually up for a party. We are in our early and late thirties.

    Having been a huge fan of Guacho in the past, the service we had on Saturday evening was vile! Truly rubbish experience from start to finish! From waiting 1.5 hours to be seated (having booked 3 weeks before!) to having wine spilt on a guest to being asked why we didn't tip the full 12.5% - our experience was dreadful - AVOID at all costs - London has a ton of great places, this isn't on of them

    Had high hopes for a good steak and got that. Food was good but, they were out of several things early in the evening. The host staff was great, the wait staff either were short staffed or not that good (it took 20 mins to get a menu and drinks order). All that was OK. The biggest issue was the music was so loud even the staff couldn't hear, killed an otherwise nice evening. Do they want to be a restaurant or a night club? Once they figure that out it will be a better place.

    This is a suave restaurant that serves very good beef. Our server (I think her name was Anna) was charming and extremely efficient. She was operating under considerable pressure but on her own, more staff needed. Two very polite and smart young men were in evidence but presumably not waiters? The steak really is excellent, the flavour, texture, presentation were all impeccable and there is a very wide range of Malbec to choose from. Always an enjoyable experience.

    Have been to this restaurant a few times before and always enjoyed the experience but last Saturday was different. It was full, very full. The staff are normally superb maybe they were overwhelmed. Polite and apologetic but as we were not in a hurry it didn't matter to us.. but still. This pressure also affected the kitchen staff - I ordered rib-eye medallions as I wanted a small portion - they were small; and tough... my companion had no complaints about his fillet. The beans had hardly been shown water - not just crunchy, not cooked. Fries ... end of the line with lots of small burnt ones. Dining at Gaucho is not an inexpensive night out and I feel that maybe service and food were being sacrificed for volume on this occasion.

    Visiting Gaucho made me recall how much I miss Argentinian and South Africa steak. The meat was incredible and literally melted in my mouth. The waiter was very attentive, without being intrusive, and the ambience was warm and busy. Gaucho is a busy restaurant, but that makes the experience all the more fun. It was excellent value for money considering the quality of the meat. I will return as soon as possible.

    Goucho Sloane is my go-to place to take special guests and friends, especially meat-lovers. The staff are professional, and always a pleasure to chat to. In fact, this time, it seems to me that the staff really added to the overall experience. One of the things I value most is their ability to recommend food items, and also good wines- please make sure this is always there. Many thanks, Adam

    We were disappointed with our experience at Gaucho this time round. First of all we were sitting at a table that had no light due to an air vent above so it was extremely difficult to see our menu. Secondly it took us forever to order our food. We asked approx. 4 different people for someone to take our order and when our waiter finally appeared he did not even apologise for the delay. There were lots of staff milling about but I am not sure who had responsibility for what. Our food, a mixture of ceviches, steaks and sausages, though expensive, was very good. The cheese bread at the beginning of the meal was delicious. The Scottish maître 'd was excellent too. Very friendly.

    Huge fan of gaucho normally but had never been to this location before. Not busy but service erratic and slow, meat requested med-well served rare, by time replacement was given everyone had finished eating and remaining sides were cold so could not eat, didn't want desserts but was surprised with a small piece of cake with candle for husband's birthday - thought lovely gesture until we then found we had been charged for a dessert on the bill (later removed). Unlikely to return.

    This Gauchos doesn't live up to the experience you get at the O2 venue. Not guided to the bar area for a pre-dinner drink just ushered straight to our table despite being early. The music way too loud, even the waiter commented about it so no banter could be had. Starters were good. Scallops were massively overpriced at £17.50. You wouldn't expect to pay more than £10-£12. The steaks were a let down, all served lukewarm. Within 2 mins steaks had pretty much gone cold. No check by the waiter so no opportunity to get this remedied without making a big fuss. Had to ask them to point out each steak on the tasting plates as my parents had never dined at a Gauchos before. Overall it was disappointing for the £300+ bill (no desserts or coffees).

    Excellent meal which was topped off by the waiter (cannot remember his name but he was french speaking). Greeted upon arrival with friendly and smiling staff. They also took note of our request for a quieter table so we were placed nicely in the corner - top marks! Waiter came over and introduced himself, explaining where the meat and wine came from followed by him bringing out the meat for us to look at. Good recommendation of wine and it certainly helps when a waiter knows what he is talking about which our waiter was more than competent and knowledgeable. The fillet steak (lomo) and chicken were fantastically cooked. Highly recommended and the waiter made it a meal to remember! Thanks see you soon.

    At 18.30hrs on a pleasant Monday evening the whole dining experience at Gauchos was ruined by loud, bland music being played throughout the restaurant. I asked for a quieter table but was told this is a "Night Club experience" and the music is loud everywhere - end of story. No wonder Hawksmoor was fully booked that evening and Guauchos was largely empty. The food is arguably better at Gauchos but the evening restaurant ambiance is excruciating. I will not be back.

    Gaucho's was recommended and did not disappoint. Service was fantastic, from explaining the different cuts of meat to side orders that would compliment what we had chosen. Two of us shared a 300g steak which was more than enough however, the deserts were to tempting to pass. We opted for the cheesecake, never tasted anything so divine. Will definitely be back.

    The restaurant when they seat you at the restaurant bar is to loud to hear the conversation at the table. The service is awful and you spend a lot of time waiting for the waiter to take your order and service the table. The last two visits have been awful. Not going back to this one.

    Went here with my family to celebrate daughter's 30th birthday. Can't fault it at all. I had mentioned in advance that my future son in law had leg in plaster and they were fully prepared with adequate access for him and crutches. They also brought out special desert with candle for my daughter. Staff couldn't have been more attentive, food was out of this world. It's by no means cheap but you certainly get the big experience to match the big bill! Well done to all and thank you very much

    We had reserved a table and were running late, a quick call to a very friendly and helpful person was enough to amend the booking. From the moment we got in and throughout the entire evening, service was top-notch and we felt very welcomed. The restaurant is very cozy and food was high quality - albeit a bit too salty to our taste. It is by no means a cheap place to dine at but you do get what you pay for.

    Many of my friends had eaten at Gaucho's across London and we booked the Sloane restaurant as we were visiting London with friends. We were very impressed on arrival and the staff were very friendly. The look and feel of the restaurant was vary good with a mixture of booths and table/chairs. The service throughout was excellent. We were all very impressed with the standard of the food and there was a wide selection of wines to choose from. We queried what wine to have and the waitress was very helpful explaining about the regions in Argentina. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and would certainly go back when in London again!

    My 1st time at Gaucho Sloane was 1year ago and it was cool.I had dinner in the beautiful room on the back.Food good as usual,they arranged all the dishes to be gluten free.Amazing basket of gluten free bread with many types of GF bread. I ve been to Gaucho last week and the experience has been slightly different.I arrived at 9pm as per reservation and I couldn't dine in the nice room in the back because they closed it,although many people were still eating there.If I had knew I would have gone somewhere else as the ambience and atmosphere is really important for me,so my dinner didnt start so nicely. We had to dine in the noisy room. Food good as usual but I only had 2small slices of gluten free bread, no more basket of bread like 1year ago

    Started with a cocktail, my partener orded a pimm's and i took an old fashion. We both did not like it. if you charge me a premium price then give me the perfect cocktail please. Pimm's was very bitter wt a small slice of strawberry and nothing else. Too much wisky in my old fashion, no balance between whisky and orange. We then moved to our table, service was very slow from start to finish. I have waited 35 min to get 3small scallops and 2 burnt sausages with red peppers. I could not believe that the chef was happy sending me those sausage. My guess was the head chef was off.steak were ok nothing spacial and had better. Rasperry parfait tasted like a shop bought dessert. Gaucho is a big fashionable brand and forgot about basics.

    Always love going to Gaucho when wanting a guaranteed great steak, I normally go to the Piccadilly restaurant but the Sloane branch was nearer to Royal Albert Hall, however the service was really slow and our waiter was lazy explaining the meats which I wanted explaining to my mother in law as it was her first time. They just weren't as friendly as the other branches.

    it was my birthday dinner with my wife and we invited another couple who were close friends. We had drinks in the social bar which was nice although it lacked a bit of atmosphere. We were shown to our table which must have been the arsehole table as it was crammed in the corner adjacent to the fire exit, fire extinguisher with wheelie bins outside the window!!! We kindly asked to me moved to the rear of the restaurant and the staff were more than happy to accommodate. The steaks finally arrived but the fillets were wrong - butterfly we were told but we didn't order that! Normal fillets please. It all went back. The staff were accommodating but there were little assumptions from the staff that didn't really make our night a great one!

    Steak was great but the service is what really stood out for me. I loved the look of the restaurant and the bar next door although we didn't have a drink on this occasion but we will be back to try it out. I can see how it's not for everyone but we thought it looked very cool. Even the ladies toilets were beautiful! It is pretty expensive but I guess you pay for what you get.
