- Simply terrible experience - AGAIN!TKearneyDined on 20/9/2014Having 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
- EDocErdocDined on 20/9/2014Had 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.Special Features:
- MODERN LIFEFiresteedDined on 15/9/2014This 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Too many ..sunnyviDined on 13/9/2014Have 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.
- Incredible food and experienceOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 13/9/2014Visiting 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.
- Great evening out with friendsTatiaDined on 12/9/2014We had a great experience at Gaucho Sloane. Great food and service for a bunch of girls on a rare night out. Was not disappointed in any way at all.Special Features:
- Still outstanding!SlainyeDined on 8/9/2014Goucho 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, AdamSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great food and serviceOpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 8/9/2014Staff were very welcoming and looked after us very well. The steaks were all brilliant!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Amazing foodChelseagirlDined on 6/9/2014Had a wonderful evening for our anniversary food was amazing service was brilliant and the complementary glass of fizz to celebrate was greatly received very pricey but worth it :)Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- luvtoeatDined on 5/9/2014We 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.
- Outstanding foodOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 30/8/2014For a special occasion this is the place to go as the food is outstanding and the service is fantastic. Well worth the high cost of a night out.Special Features:
- Great food and amazing servicephilparsonageDined on 26/8/2014Took my grandad and cousin here as a treat and it was great. Lovely restaurant with nice decor. Wonderful service from very helpful and happy staff. Lovely food and wine. Will be returning.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- A good venueOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 23/8/2014I had several diner at various Gaucho and never been disappointing. Not cheap it meets expectations. The meat is very good and service friendly and efficient. Good choose of wine particularly Argentinian .Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- ExcellentHerb1978Dined on 23/8/2014Went to Sloan square for anniversary , meal was excellent, problem with starter which was sorted out with no issuesSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- DisappointingMrswillisDined on 22/8/2014Huge 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.Special Features:
- Disappointingly averageGeorgieDined on 16/8/2014This 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 service and food!TTTLLLDined on 9/8/2014Excellent 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.Special Features:
- Bombarded by deafening bland noiseGourmetNoiseDined on 14/7/2014At 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.
- Far too expensiveIlovesteakDined on 10/7/2014This resteraunt has gotten far too expensive for what it is. It used to be a nice place to go for dinner but they are constantly raising the prices. £18 for 6 scallops is not a great deal.Special Features:
- Steak tastic at GauchoRBEatVIPDined on 4/7/2014Excellent meal - never a disappointment at Gaucho. Would definitely returnSpecial Features:
- Food HeavenEmmaDined on 27/6/2014Gaucho'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.Special Features:
- to loud to hearLove2eatDined on 23/6/2014The 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.Special Features:
- Great serviceKels03Dined on 13/6/2014Service at sloane was great. Made you feel welcome and look after. Would defiantly go back t Sloane again.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- An amazing experienceCarolinamoon39Dined on 7/6/2014Went 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 muchSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Fantastic food and serviceOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 6/6/2014We 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.Special Features:
- FantasticJas1909Dined on 4/6/2014The service was the highest of all the gauchos I have visited, the staff were knowledgeable and helpful. The food was well described and was amazing to taste, the caramel cheesecake was something to behold. Great wine selection- highly recommendSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- ExcellentGavinODined on 31/5/2014Many 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!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Gaucho does not disappointAndreiDined on 30/5/2014As in all the previous visits, everything is to a high standard, from the greeting to the meat board to quality of steaks and of course, service.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great food & serviceGemLouDined on 30/5/2014The food was lovely, we did the lunch special and it was great value for money. The service was great, very friendly and attentive, would definitely recommend Gaucho's.Special Features:
- 1st time@Gaucho amazing,not 2nd oneBali84Dined on 27/5/2014My 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 agoSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Made our evening very specialHungryhorse22Dined on 25/5/2014We took our 18 year old daughter here for a family supper on her birthday as she loves steak. The staff really looked after us and made it a special evening and the food was delicious. Would definitely recommend.Special Features:
- OpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 25/5/2014Started 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.
- Great food but service slowSteakloverDined on 24/5/2014Always 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Excellent Restaurant with limits!d0nnyozDined on 22/5/2014it 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!Special Features:
- FantasticJosie0f0kDined on 13/5/2014Steak 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.Special Features:
- Carnivores paradiseOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 12/5/2014Booked at relatively short notice and was very pleasantly surprised to get a table. Lovely welcome, attentive service, our waiter was so knowledgeable about both food and wine to suit. Some friends rang us while we were eating and we asked if they could join us and nothing was too much trouble. In short we were very well looked after and had a lovely evening. We were celebrating some exam success and our sons dessert arrived with a hand piped 'congratulations' no big fuss but such a nice touchSpecial Features:
- Out for a food SteakWalkerDined on 11/5/2014The steak was really outstanding, however, I had to give it back because it was well done instead of medium. This may happen, but it happend to a lady at the next table as well. There is obviously room for process improvement.Special Features:
- OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 10/5/2014Pretentious place without just cause. Galante the cocktail bar beside it was quite good.Special Features:
- Great mealMagdalenDined on 10/5/2014Friendly, knowledgable staff and excellent food. Great atmosphere, exactly what you want on a saturday evening!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Better than anticpatedNewbieVIPDined on 5/5/2014After the decidedly mixed reviews on this website, I went half-expecting to be disappointed. I was totally wrong. Our reservation was for 6.30pm and the restaurant was quiet. The sausage platter starter was very tasty and an excellent shared dish for the table. The steaks were all very good, although the marinated fillet special tasted not much different from the standard fillet. Dessert was also well above average. Our waiter, Richard, was outstanding.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
