The food and service are excellent.
Was celebrating my Son's birthday. At the end they a few slices of brownie, icing on the cake to their service. Very impressed.
It's slightly expensive but worth the money because the food tasted so nice.

Good food, bit expensive but good location. Service was okay - lovely servers but got drinks orders wrong a few times and forgot to return to table when asked etc. Expected a little better given the price but honestly lovely people.

Great attentive service. Great location. Food superbly cooked. One area that needs addressing is internal redecoration required. Outside patio is excellent with great views.

I've always loved Goucho, however apart from the service, the food was okay, would have been better if it was hot rather than warm. Thyme chips were just plain almost cold...we just didn't bother to complain as the service was excellent....hope next time its a tad better.

One of the nicest meals me and my partner have ever had, such attentive staff and a lovely view when sitting outside under the trees. On my booking I mentioned it was our anniversary, I never really expect anything from most restaurants but they were so kind to bring us out a little plate with some brownies with ‘happy anniversary’ written on. 1000% would recommend and I cannot wait to go back!

Extremely disappointed.
Birthday booking for my partner - asked for a lil dessert saying Happy Birthday - No one or nothing came even though I requested beforehand and staff said yes.

Received burnt fries and burger. Awful service. I am Muslim and they gave me bacon on a basic burger which I did not ask for? Waiting for someone to acknowledge us for over 10 minutes. Asked for mayonnaise got ketchup instead. Asked for a straw nothing came.
Did not understand staff when they spoke. Will not return again what a horrible experience for Gauchos which is meant to be classy.

Had a lovely meal here yesterday evening. Saturday night so it was very busy, there wasn’t a table free!
Quite noisy and lots of people looked like they were out before they were going off clubbing.
Waitress was very nice and attentive, cocktails were good. Nice decor for a moody ambience.
I’ve eaten at gaucho a number of times, unfortunately my husband and I were both left dissatisfied with our meals, my chicken was over cooked and his steak was more well done than the medium that he requested. The chips were cold, dry and hard to chew.
I’m sorry to say that I may think twice about returning to Gaucho as there is so much variety and choice in Canaary Wharf for the price point.

Ribeye steak was unevenly done; dry in parts, a lot of silverskin. Tuna ceviche was quite good. Firecracker chimichurri was very good. Wine list quite spotty and availability poor.

we were seated at the back of the restaurant so we felt we were in the kitchen. we asked to be moved so we was put near the bar . Did not leave much room for the waiters to walk by so chair is knocked.
I put in the booking we were celebrating my mothers 82nd birthday and the restaurant took no notice of the notes and did not even wish my mother a Happy BIRTHDAY. Food was okay but should have been asked how we would like the beef as it was rare.

Overall very good. Portion sizes could have been larger. Disappointed that 2 of the 3 dessert choices on the fixed price lunch menu were not available. Could have been offered something from the a la cart menu.
Staff and location excellent.
