Food felt like it was just I repeat only just briefly microwaved and with a broken microwave at that because it was cold. The food might as well have been served straight from the fridge. My advice remove the restaurant from Deliveroo it is affecting the in house food quality. You’re now prioritising quantity over quality and it shows. I doubt I’ll be eating at a Gaucho that offers deliveroo as an option as well. I understand the restaurant may need to make more profit during these turbulent times but damn does it hurt the brand. Great Waiter though!
It was ok not what it used to be
wonderful experience during the lockdown. as it was well organised, quiet and early for dinner, we felt safe. thank you.
Great steak. Very nice service. Loved the chips. Loved the cocktails
Great location, lovely atmosphere experienced and knowledgeable staff
Lovely food and venue. Surprisingly busy considering COVID but felt safe. Would return
The food was amazing, lovely to go to for a cute date. Our waitress was lovely always making sure we were ok. Would definitely recommend.
A really fun, lively venue that I would really recommend. The evening was memorable for the service, the food and and energetic ambience. Although the evening was not cheap, the quality of the overall experience did represent value for money for a special occasion. I would highly recommend.
I've personally never had a bad experience at Gaucho. The quality of the food is great (personal preference), I also enjoy the ambience and style of Gaucho restaurants. Yes, it is expensive but I think that the whole package is worth the price.
Big shout out to the guy at reception that pretty much ran to bring me my card that I've left on the table!
Terrible terrible service. The restaurant was hoovering the floor whilst we were eating .... we waited for over 35 mins before somebody came to take our order
Great food and service, but noisy.
A long wait of 30 minutes between ordering and receiving starts and then a longer wait between starts and our main course was disappointing
Food quality was great, just smaller than expected from the set menu
Thank you so much for your opinion. We regret not having met your expectations in some aspects. The opinions of our guests are very important to us as they help us improve every day. We hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you again. Kind Regards Javier Catano
Lovely venue, food is delicious and service excellent
We know that food and a nice atmosphere is very important for our guests and we work very hard every day to achieve this and that is why it brightens our day to read opinions as positive as yours. Thank you for having gone to the trouble of sharing your experience with us and with other users. Looking forward to welcoming you again Regards Javier Catano
Food was absolutely brilliant, staff very attentive all round fantastic visit.
Thank you for having gone to the trouble of sharing your experience with us and with other users. We are very happy to read that our staff looked after you so well! We are so looking forward to seeing you again!
Food was amazing and worth every penny! service was great until they had a shift change and we were left un-attended as we had eaten by then, we had to chase for the bill and when asked it wasn't met with any words just a grunt. the original lady serving was great, she was lovely and chatty and was super. they had a good selection of drinks however this was a Saturday evening and they has run out of all sparkling wine that was served by the glass. One change i would make is to have more wine options by the glass rather than having to purchase a whole bottle. i was the only one of my party which was drinking wine and wouldn't have wanted a whole bottle to myself. overall great experience and food was amazing just a shame about the last part of our service and the lack of drink available considering it was a Saturday evening.
Fantastic service, food and atmosphere - we really enjoyed our evening!
Dear Sandy Thank you for reviewing your experience with us and with other users. If you decided to Come to Gaucho Chancery Lane again, it would be our pleasure to see you! Looking forward to seeing you again! Regards Team Chancery
Food was great. Although, the Mac-n-Cheese was swimming in a pool of excessive oil.
It was a great meal out, me and my girlfriend both enjoyed the whole evening.
Every dish was cooked perfectly and had unbelievable taste. The venue was romantically light and set with friendly approachable staff on hand.
Very nicely surprised with this place and the lovely staff. Inventive and tasty food. Highly recommend
Food was good - maybe I had high(er) expectations. Service left quite a bit to be desired as the restaurant got busy, the waiters couldn’t really cope. The ambience was ok but we were placed in a corner of a small side room which had a bit of a funky smell.
For the first time in my life, I had a bad experience in a Gaucho restaurant. Have been to many of the Gaucho branches in London before so I know what to expect.
Therr were 4 of us at this branch for a business dinner last week. I have been to this branch 3 or 4 times before and always had a great experience. Not so much this time.
The service was the issue, not the food.
We Ordered no starters as we opted for 500gr Sirloin steaks instead.
We've asked for some bread to go with the pricy wine we bought. Bread slices arrived at the table nearly 25 minutes after we ordered. We were hoping for the famous cheese buns however they had "none left".
Eventually some freshly made buns arrived to the table (over 30 minutes later) which were yummy, however, the steaks arrived right after.
Steaks were perfect, as expected! Can't fault them.
The most disappointing part was for me to find a large piece of hard and sharp plastic in my green side salad. it seems to be some part of food packaging. It was hidden inside the large salad leaves and I nearly choked on it. Very sharp! The waitress came and said "interesting find", took the piece away and left.
We heard no apology and no compensation was offered. The waitress (she was also the host) was unfriendly the entire evening and my colleagues expressed their dissatisfaction from the dinner.
Unfortunately, I won't come back to this branch. There are great steaks in other restaurants, and with better and consistent service.
Nine of us went to the Electro brunch at Gaucho's. It was a great experience with plenty of food provided for our large group in an efficient manner and outstanding staff who looked after the group with patience and a smile. I would strongly recommend to all!
Excellent steaks cooked exactly the way you want. Very friendly and efficient service.
Restaurant wasn’t full but service was a bit slow at the table, had to get the attention of the waiter too much for the level of the restaurant. Table was overly small given the amount of sides, glasses, plates and crockery.
Steak was brilliant and very well cooked. However the sides were all cold including the fries. Seemed like they were prepared and not kept warm? Noticed that the warming lights at the servers were not used??
Despite these negatives the food was good and steak as mentioned was perfect.
Would I go back, yes I would! But this time with a lower expectation than what I had of the restaurant on this, my first visit.
Had a great night! Fantastic food, service and atmosphere!
The food was good, although the chips were over salted and our side order of carrots did not arrive and had to be chased - when they did arrive they were raw. The waiter was extremely inattentive, something I've never encountered at a Gaucho restaurant before.
He did not ask if everything was okay with our meal, did not apologise for the carrots being forgotten, had to be asked to remove them from the bill and left us sat at our table after we finished our meal for half an hour, without offering us a dessert menu. In the end we just called him over to get he bill and left.
Overall a disappointing experience - something I've never experienced at any other Gaucho restaurant before, so this must be an issue solely relating to this particular Gaucho - its the first time I've dined at Chancery Lane.
A bit to expensive couldn't read menu due to being so dark ib side
Restaurant was so loud that we had to shout to each other to have a conversation. We were happy to finish our meal and leave.
Food was great (apart from the below) and service was also great.
Gluten free options were not the best as some which are marked as gluten free on the menu cannot be guaranteed to be so (clearly just marking as gluten free to make it seem that they cater for that requirement). It was lucky that we asked - we had put a note on the booking that one of our party required gluten free and this was not looked at. Would not book again.
Thank you for your feedback. We work every day to offer the best service and cuisine. We regret that our GF options was not to your liking. We firmly trust that our staff has advised you correctly. We hope you give us another chance to enjoy our steaks. Greetings from the management.
Lovely steak which I couldn't fault but thought sides were a little expensive for what they were had broccoli as one of my sides and it was undercooked and cold. We were there nye so was very busy, service was very slow although our waiter was very nice we were there 3 1/2 hours altogether waiting a long time between courses . Air conditioning was blowing on us and was very cold even after they turned it down at our request and I ended up putting a coat on. Music was also very loud and we had to.shout to each other to be heard. Dessert I had cheesecake which was nice but again not worth the price tag. Overall was ok but I doubt I will visit again.
Thank you for sharing your detailed experience in our restaurant as well, since feedback always helps us to improve. We take note of your experience with the Broccoli. We regret that not all the dishes came out as expected: thanks for the understanding, it is not usual that lack of synchronisation. Finally, we are proud to read that you received a great service from our team, especially in such a busy day like NYE. We hope to receive you soon
Amazing food! Best steak I have ever eaten, would defo recommend!!
Dear Guest Thank you for your five stars review and we are most content that you'd enjoyed your experience with us. I am glad you enjoyed so much our steaks! We hope to see you soon Regards Javier Catano
Had a great time at the very busy (Xmas period) Gaucho in Chancery Lane, The food was really very good and the steak was some of the best I have had. Truly impressive.
Not cheap - and not fine dining - but very 'honest' and robust eating. I liked it.

Great food and service as always but the music was so loud it was difficult to hold a conversation without shouting. We did ask for the music to be turned down just a little but that didn’t happen.
Never mind, Gaucho restaurants are always excellent and I would recommend but just a little less really loud music would make it even better.
Dear Guest Thank you for your review and we are most content that you'd enjoyed your experience with us. We take pride in offering excellent service and demonstrating our quality in food.

Dear Guest Thank you for your five stars review and we are most content that you'd enjoyed your experience with us. We hope to see you soon Regards Javier Catano
We were forgotten about, and then asked to vacate to the bar before we had finished our food. The drinks as part of the package were never provided. Table wasnt cleared before our main meal arrived. I went there with business clients, very embarrassing about the service levels.... I will avoid in future.
The menu and quality of the food and service was excellent as was our server Andrew. This was a very important event for myself and family and Gaucho Chancery Lane ensured that everything was perfect. Thank you so much for a great meal and fantastic service.
Dear Guest Thank you for your review and we are most content that you'd enjoyed your experience with us. We take pride in offering excellent service and demonstrating our quality in food. We are definitely passing on your comments to Andrea! We hope to see you soon Regards Javier Catano
this chain is going down time by time. The service used to be the USP of Gaucho. We arrived at the reception and there was none attending the desk even after waiting few minutes. Our guest was already sitting and so we were able to get to the table. The service was so poor, the waitress looked stressed and out of control. I understand that a busy restaurant is not easy to manage but for the value, I would expect a better service. Food is still very good as well as the ambiance. Will choose another place for Business meetings also for the high-level noisy floor.
Whilst the food tasted amazing, we waited a very long time for it and the portion sizes for what you pay are relatively small. The service was also good, certainly friendly, again for what you pay you expect more (at least a cloak room to hang our coats up). Gauchos used to be renowned for their service, however it seems a little as though they might be cutting back on wages and it shows.
Dear Guest, I would like to apologies for not meeting your expectations . We aim to maintain our high standards and thrive in giving great service, but unfortunately missed the mark with you. We have passed on the comments to our reception team to guarantee more attention to details and ask regularly to take guest coats. We looking forward to seeing you back Regards Javier Catano
Quality price very expensive, sides are extra, very unfriendly and agressif staff, not honest. I won’t come black and will not recommand it.
Great service. Not too loud even with a large Xmas party in the background. Fun yet mature environment. Mid to high range in cost but you get what you pay for. Excellent food. Steaks cooked exactly as asked. Great cuts. Excellent wine and drink choices. Of recommend this over Shard.
I booked a table for 6 people on Friday 13 Dec 2019. I received confirmation from Gaucho for this.
a couple of days later Gaucho contacted me and said they were closed and could I rebook.
I rebooked for 18.00hrs same day and this was confirmed by Gaucho.
the email said we would be greeted on our arrival with a glass of Champagne for the inconvenience.
on arrival we were not greeted in fact I was made to look like a liar.
the manager demanded I show him the email. one of my party was so shocked by this he left and did not stay for his Christmas meal. the rest of the staff were very good.
I will not use Gaucho again.
