8 years ago Gaucho was excellent, then it got new management and became mediocre. Not sure what had happened now, but the entrecote was excellent!! As was the service and décor (as always). One tiny thing.. Why lamb in the peppercorn sauce..? Not nice.

We came here for a special occasion and the evening was awesome from beginning to end!
After a warm and kind welcome in reception where we were asked to leave our coats, then the receptionist lead us to our table where our waitress, Christine, started taking care of us.
She explained us all the different cuts of steak and the difference in taste, which really helped in our choice! Her service was attentive while not intrusive and we really felt that she was looking after us. Our orders were taking quickly and wonderful advice was given to me regarding the temperature of the steak. The food was amazing and the steak (we ordered the rib-eye from the set menu) was to die for!
Cocktails super tasty and reasonably priced.
It was the first time dining here, but the taste of the food and the amazing service we received made us decide to make it our to-go spot when having a little time!

We were very impressed by both the service and the food at Gaucho Canary Wharf. We had a slight issue when a bottle of wine was inadvertently knocked over on our table by another guest when leaving. The wine spilt onto my plate and covered my uneaten fillet. The waitress immediately removed the plate and replaced my steak with another, which was cooked to perfection, in a very quick time, and we were also offered complimentary glasses of wine. Exemplary customer service in dealing with a matter that was not the restaurant’s fault in any way. Excellent!! (Our waitresses were Eva, and I believe Alissa (apologies for spelling!!)). The fillet steaks for both of us were cooked exactly to our requirements, and were delicious (we had the marinaded fillet - Churrasco de limo - fabulous!!). A five star experience!!!!

Personal preference, wasn't a fan of the tuna starter. The main course; the fries were extremely over done, the mushrooms had a odd pizza type taste, the asparagus was salty, the peppercorn sauce tasted like gravy but on the plus side the steak was nice. For dessert I had the sticky toffee pudding however that was quite dry. The waiting staff seemed friendly enough, but I wasn't impressed with the 12.5% gratuity added on to the bill as I do not feel that our meal deserved a £23 tip (so I requested this was reduced.) Overall I think this place was extremely over priced for the quality of food we were served.

Great food, service and ambience. For those with table anxiety, they are a little close: easy to nose on others conversations ;). But apart from that, loved it.

The rump steak was not well cooked. Infact it was rare even though we told them that we wanted it well done. Also they allowed us to open our wine only to be told it was not allowed. Had to pour all back in the bottle. No degree of flexibility. Mot very good customer service to be honest.

My favourite steakhouse in London, never fails to impress, and always ensures I have a great steak, great wine, and recharges me to go back to Ukraine where they don't know how to cook a steak. I always order the smallest fillet, cooked rare medium rare. My steak this time was a little overcooked, probably closer to medium rare, but delicious. 3 great bottles of malbac, few pisco sours and Don Pedro and all good

The restaurant is decorated beautifully and is in a great setting but the experience as a whole was fairly poor. Miserable receptionist, rushed service, if we hadn’t complained I expect the whole meal would have been done and dusted in about 30 mins! Food was ok but had better!

Wanted to have fillet but no longer available on the set menu and I was surprised to find that it came with nothing on the a la carte menu which makes it hugely expensive compared to the set menu. So I settled for ribeye on the set menu which was excellent, tender and juicy.

Had a lovely meal with extended family. The meat was fantastic. The waiter was a bit clumsy and smelled of cigarettes. It took long time after the mains were done to wait for the offer of dessert and coffees. Overall will come back for food.

Overall the quality of dining here has gone down considerably in the last six months.
After coming here in March I was absolutely blown away by the service, food and ambience.
Most of the things that made my first experience of Gaucho so enjoyable have been lost in the interim.
Firstly a menu change meant the dish I had my heart set on, the fillet steak, was no longer on the set menu. I completely understand that restaurants have to change menus occasionally, but having looked at the menu on Tuesday making my booking it would have been helpful if this could have been highlighted in advance. The waitress made no attempt either to rectify the situation or recommending an alternative. On asking about it, the answer was pretty blunt. Essentially saying. It’s our policy, we are not making an exception for you.
Aside from that moment of disappointing service, we were not given much recommendations on meat choices and temperatures, something we really appreciated on our last visit. Even being welcomed at the door seemed rushed. The host didn’t set a warm welcoming tone, instead seemed disorganised and panicked.
I will say that the standard food is still very high, but Gaucho used to be about more than that.
My first visit to Gaucho had me thinking ‘I can’t wait to go back’
My last visit to Gaucho has me thinking ‘I don’t think I will go back’
