Overall good, though the service was slow. We were going to order desserts but after waiting for 20 minutes to order, gave up and just asked for the bill.

Went for dinner with my boyfriend and my dad and a colleague of his that were in town for business, they work in the food industry so are proper foodies and are not easily satisfied, but they were really happy with the meal and impressed by the quality of the ingredients used! Highly recommended if you love meat and desserts were delicious too.

Ordered the usual medium-cooked 300g ribeye which despite several consecutive complaints of the steak arriving over-cooked, it turned up well-done! Unbelievable! And despite feeding back to the waiter, Gaucho had the nerve to charge full price for that meal—zero compensation for this shortcoming!

Not only was the steak unsatisfactory, the waiter was most inauthentic as usual. Even my girlfriend who always looks forward to joining me at Gaucho Canary declared ‘that’s it—not coming back here. The steak has gone downhill and so has the service—most disengaged waiter’ she remarked.

I wanted to speak to the manager directly as I used to be quite a regular and have given ample feedback, but had to dash for a waiting cab. Please engage with this feedback.

Gaucho Canary is very hit-and-miss—unbelievably inconsistent compared to its Smithfield and other counterparts.

Had a lovely anniversary meal. Menu was a little limited but the main course (steak) made up for it! The best steak we’ve ever had!! Was worth the hour drive for a special occasion :)

A top quality restaurant that serves some of the best steaks you will try, at a very moderate price for what it is. Very good service, even have us a free wine bottle my girlfriend's birthday.

Service was good etc but booked the brunch as was with friends for a birthday and wanted a live singer and a dance. I was told there was a live singer for the entire time we were Brunching from 1-3. We could of been at any brunch as singer only sang for 10 minutes out of the whole 2 hours we were there.

We thoroughly enjoyed our evening. The atomosphere was relaxed, the lighting just right, the music not too loud, and the food superb. We both had the ribeye steak which was delicious. Our first choice of wine wasn't available, neither was our second, which was disappointing, but didn't spoil the evening at all because our waiter was so charming and helpful and organised a very good and more expensive wine for us, for the same price. All the staff were excellent, both friendly and professional, and we're looking forward to returning.

We went for my daughter’s 16th, she loves steak. Our cab couldn’t get outside so we had to walk about a bit to find restaurant. We went for lunch, there was a live singer which was extra special although where we were sat it was quite loud as we had speaker above our head but it was fine. Waitress was lovely and food was amazing, steak was delicious. And red wine! Without asking our waitress brought our daughters dessert with a candle and we sang to her. That was so kind. Think our waitress was Raquel.
Thank you so much gaucho. Would love to return one day

This Gaucho is great as it has outside seating and the front of it is glass. There is lot's of natural light, I find other Gaucho's tend to be a bit too dark.

Our party turned up a little early but was not an issue. Service was prompt and wine and steak cut recommendation very good. Steak was excellent but found the sides slightly on the small side given the pricing. Seating was slightly cramped but general ambience was good. Would recommend

Worst meal ever, extremely disappointed. Steak was really undercooked and unseasoned. Loads of blood was all over our table clothe and the chips with vinegar are disgusting and customers should be told this is NOT normal vinegar like a chip shop would use! Its a different vinegar with all herbs over your chips! I would never eat back here again after this dreadful meal

Lovely table along the river and we were lucky that it was a beautiful day. Great service from our waiter. He even gave us complimentary river taxi tickets as it was our anniversary and we were going to see a show at the O2 with some delicious chocolate truffles to end the meal. Good food and great ambiance would definitely recommend.

Who loves steak and Argentinian wine will love dining at Gaucho Grill in Canary Wharf too! Nice atmosphere, excellent service, very tender beef steaks and being a Monday evening we benefited from a massive reduction in the price of fine wines. The view of river Thames was another bonus!
