Aptly housed in what was once the gold holding vaults of the Bank of England, Gaucho City draws in the buzz from across the Square Mile. Offering a stylish restaurant, two elegant private dining rooms and a relaxing cocktail lounge, we have options to suit every dining occasion.

Gaucho City would like their patrons to know that they prefer to take reservations for parties of 5 and over in-house.

I have lost count of the number of times I have been to a Gaucho's, and we keep going back as the food is great.
One of the best things about this Gaucho's is the staff, they are absolutely brilliant, we had not been here for a few months, but our waitress remembered us from our last visit (My sons birthday), and even remembered that it was his birthday, this is what service should be like.

Overall I enjoyed my time at Gaucho City. The staff were friendly, the food was exceptional, the only disappointment for me was the level of service provided. There were 7 of us and we had to wait 10 minutes to be asked for a drink along with our starters arriving moments before the mains.

Got a great Welcome, very friendly and were more then happy to bring my booking forward as we arrived early.
Service was good from start to finish, staff happy to help in any way possible.
Food...... Had the large fillet to share, was expensive but believed would be worth it .
Was very dissapointed, Chips were good, sauce was fantastic, pasta was also good but steak wasn’t great, was cooked to our liking (medium) but was, wouldn’t say tuff but wasn’t as it should of been, ie i belive it was no different to my Sunday roast joint from home.
Reception asked how evening was when left , I explained was great but bit let down on the steak, they offered chance for us to review properly but we were short for time.

Been served raw chicken(bloody), as a pregnant woman, even though I asked for this to be well done. I didn't want to have steak, as that would have been more risky from my point of view, plus, chicken should be cooked no matter what....you'd think.
The manager did apologise and said it would be taken off the bill....as I was going to pay for uncooked chicken?! So yeah..they did me a favour, what can I say...
That put me off completely and all I wanted was to leave, even though, it was my husband's b'day, as from my point a view (catering manager with food safety knowledge) is simply unacceptable!!!

Everything was great until the bill arrived. The restraunt automatically adds a DESCRETIONARY tip onto the total value. I had good service however, due to the amount I spent the tip was just ridiculous so I said to the waiter put x amount onto my card which reduced the tip by £5. This still left the waitress with a good tip but she then stated the following:

“Erm, you do know this comes out my salary?” I thought this was extremely unprofessional and if I could go back now I would have given her no tip at all . Was embarrassing for the Guacho brand.

Once the payment had gone through she was extremely rude , and told me to have a good night with the most sarcastic look on her face and huffed as she walked away

Ruined the experience completley

Excellent food and service. The waiter was very helpful explaining the choice of dishes, and sensible portions and cooking styles for the cuts of meat.
The music was rather load and intrusive and took a little away from the ambiance.

Great food as ever at Gaucho along with excellent service. However, the City branch is really let down by its tired and worn interior and overall needs to have a revamp and redecoration!

Staff were very knowledgeable about their menu even right down to their favourite dishes!! They even made me a cocktail that wasn’t on the menu!! So good! I want to go back... now, like right now!

A booking on a Wednesday evening in a packed downstairs restaurant is never going to have the same wow effect as a revolving restaurant on top of a skyscraper with views over a capital city with the sun setting, but what it does do is bring the great Argentinian steaks to people eating after work & it did this well.

We arrived 10 minutes early so were sat at the bar while our table was prepared. We had two drinks each at the bar and after 30mins started to wonder what was going on as no one had approached us for our table. We asked the bar man and he replied “so you’re ready for your table?”. I was a little shocked, of course we were! We had been waiting half an hour for someone to approach us! Anyway, we eventually got seated but it did feel like they left us there in purpose.

Once seated our waiter was lovely and explained the different cuts so we ordered on her recommendations. Our food came out pretty quickly and it did taste great. We got a side of broccoli, chips and mushrooms, all tasted great and with the steak. My only complaint was that the steak literally came out as a piece of steak on a plate...I appreciate the sides come out separately but visually I was a little disappointed.

On the whole the steak tasted great and was cooked perfectly however it was a little pricey in comparison to other steak restaurants we have been too. £200 for two was a bit too much and therefore I wouldn’t be rushing back.

Gaucho proved to be a wonderful place to take my girlfriend for valentines day dinner. The staff were very friendly and provided excellent service. We tried a few of the many cocktails, which were very tasty and the rib eye steak was one if the best i’ve ever had.
