Food is overall good, however, I was expecting a premium restaurant like this to have plates heated as food goes cold quite quickly.

The set menu pre 7pm is fantastic value. The quality of the steak is brilliant. Restaurant is on the Thames and has great views of the London skyline. The staff are helpful and attentive. Highly recommend this branch of Gaucho.

Having been to the Hampstead branch before, I was expecting a similar level of quality that I experienced there. However it didn’t match up my potato was cold and the steaks weren’t as good as I have had previously.

The food was nowhere near as good as the Hampstead branch was.

However our server was nice and extremely friendly.

Having been to Gaucho, was interesting be seated with family members on which was my birthday. Being first visit to a Argentinian restaurant the food as I have mentioned in the ratings was generous and presented with style that would be recommendable to friends who would wish to visit the water front. From a choice of exciting dishes on the menu, I hastily requested a popular item.

Of pleasure and intrigue I would mention items of exchange such as harsh repeal of other notion of competition, which would rest and rest again on witnessed time-over on visit and may I recommend visit and advent. With summary and keen pursuance of before handed stories of uncharted waters in foreign lands delivered, tabled with archived furnishings for the view of those who so choose.

Many thanks, salut

Great food, awful service.
Advertise a great roast that tastes good but was a let down and extremely over priced - also you don’t get unlimited Yorkshire puddings only if you ask and the gravy is so small we ended up getting 4 pots extra each.

Good service, very romantic setting, lovely food. We had a steak each and it was very delicious. The fillet, particularly, was excellent, and went really well with the side dishes truffle mashed potatoes and chilli spinach. We also shared a dessert. Price was moderate (£50 pp including drinks). We would definitely come back, but more for special occasions.

Great waitress who really understood the menu. Judged our needs well and gave just the right amount of time between courses.
Rib eye steak was fabulous and the broccoli was great . Only criticism, the fries tasted stale .
Churros were divine!

We attended Gaucho on NYE. Despite it being busy the service was great and food delicious. They had sold out of their red wine but the alternative was delicious and the same price. The chateaubriand was delicious and sides - apart from the mac n cheese. Great atmosphere.

Attended Guacho on New Years Eve for dinner with my boyfriend and everything was absolutely perfect. Restaurant was busy that night but it didn't feel packed at all. The ambiance of the place wasn't too fancy but not too casual either, just right. We're a very young couple and were worried we might feel a bit out of place assuming it would be a very fancy place but that wasn't the case at all. All staff are super friendly and professional. The restaurant is beautifully designed and has a very cosy feel. Both of us especially loved the DJ's playlist. We both ordered the smallest portion of the sterlion steak (well done) with chips and we're blown away by how big the portion was. You really do get your value for money at this place. The steak tasted incredible and was juicy as well as very filling. The dinner made our evening, would highly recommended for any couple for a romantic date.

Amazing food and amazing hosting by Tom if I’m correct. I seen that it was standard procedure to explain and show each cut of meat and how best to have it cooked, which has never happened during a dining experience. All this whilst in a beautiful surrounding. Was a great way to start New Year’s Eve!!

Service was incredibly slow. Had the same electro brunch at the tower bridge restaurant and the service was 100% better. Having to wait ages for our drinks that were made and sitting on the edge of the bar was irritating. Constantly having to look out for someone so we could ask them to bring our drinks. Unacceptable.

We order the sausage board, Ancho ribeye, and Lomo fillet.

The sausage board was very good with the chorizo being our favorite. Would definitely want to have an all-chorizo board if it was available.

The Ancho ribeye was ordered as medium rare and it arrived a bit rarer than what I'm used to. However, the beef was very tender and juicy. This dish was definitely the star of the night.

The Lomo fillet was also ordered as medium rare and was good however not as fulfilling as the Ancho.

My Family (4) and I went there for a Christmas Eve dinner - I was very disappointed to discover there was absolute zero Christmas cheer no decorations, no Christmas music, there was some non-descript music piped in the background that was unrecognisable and just pulsated rather than sounded like music.
The customers were speaking in whispered tones as the lighting was so dark and it was only 5pm but it felt like a late night rendezvous.

The waiter although very polite and friendly seemed a bit run off his feet, although there seemed plenty of staff milling about not doing too much just smiling & standing about. The food was ok - not anything to rave over... In Fact I bought a decent bit of Ribeye from a supermarket the week before and it knocked spots of the steak I received at Gaucho - A disappointment all round and not even a Merry Christmas on our departure !

I went here with 4 colleagues (1 had to drop out on the day which was no problem) for Christmas lunch. The service was wonderful and we were looked after very well. The festive menu was pretty good and included a number of sides which were costing extra at other venues and with the welcome cocktail, which was from the main menu rather than a watery freebie, it was good value too. Some of the wine was pricey but they do a fair range of inexpensive wines too. Altogether this was a relaxed, enjoyable and audible lunch - I'm sure the evening gets quite buzzy too but we had to leave.....

Over all enjoyable.
Personally I wasn't keen on the starter I chose and I didn't like the side of carrots but my steak and chips were lovely. My husband shared the sausage board starter with our friend which they enjoyed but we did think it over priced. My other friend had the spinach side which she said tasted nice but was cold. We all had steaks and they were all first class.
