From the moment we arrived at the reception we received a friendly, warm, and very professional service. The decor is just beautiful and we were blown away with glass wine room. We both had steak and it was perfectly cooked all the sides and sauces to accompany the beautiful meat were delicious.
I would certainly recommend Gaucho for a special meal.
My husband and I are excited about trying Gaucho for friday brunch.

Thank you

Tender steak, delicious lobster starter, lovely tuna tartar.

Attentive staff: could have a better knowledge of alcoholic drink brands and non alcoholic cocktails available (as this info is not on the menu) - needed a description of what is being delivered at the table - recommend that serving cutlery is delivered with sharing plates - explain that a repeat order of starter is available on request.

From approximately 2pm a family entered with a young baby. This baby cried loudly till 4pm. Either seat families in a zone away from other diners or politely escort guardians of crying babies to an area where they can soothe the child. Gaucho is an expensive restaurant and should host an environment worthy of the retail price.

We asked for steaks, none of them were cooked correctly and worst of all, when we informed them they offered to additionally cook the under cooked but left the overcooked not ready to replace, even though their restaurant's value actually rests on service. Very disappointed and would definitely not recommend it to friends and family

Great steak which was very tender and full of flavour accompanied by delicious Malbec. Good explanation beforehand about what we were about to eat. Very enjoyable evening. Relaxing and good food.

The service was absolutely excellent, our waitress was very attentive. The decor was beautiful and added to the ambience, which was very relaxed. We chose Gauchos for a Friday Brunch as several of my wife's work colleagues had eaten there al la carte. I have to admit our first experience was not great, some of the starters seemed pre-prepared, the beef ribs were cool and tough, the empanadas were also cold. There did not seem to be much of a selection when it came to mains but as Argentina is famous for it's beef we decided to have steaks, unfortunately they were tough and on top of that no steak knives were provided. We noticed a neighbouring table sent her steak back twice and struggled to cut through her third. The price for our 11 year old son also seemed a touch expensive, with no option for a child meals/portions. We would probably go back at some time but not for brunch.

Went for a meal for a birthday. The restaurant organized a special dessert for the birthday girl who was surprised and very happy with her overall experience. The fillet was one of the best I've ever ate and I eat a lot of steak. Would definitely recommend.

I thought the food was good, however, it wasn't exceptional for the price. My assumption is if you're paying $400 for 2 people, the steak should be fantastic. Also, no steak knives, they give you the regular knives which I found to be odd for an Argentinian steak house.

Interesting presentation of the meat cuts. Nice place, good service (a bit too slow) and very good food.
The main issue is the exccessive price both for meat and Wine.

This was my second visit , the first was for a business dinner for approx 12 persons, by invitation which was excellent and could not be faulted.
This visit was for lunch and was fine except that we wanted to vary the set menu by ordering a baked potato in lieu of chips/salad which additional cost was AED 75 which was crazy and unnacceptable ! As I was with a Client I was not going to argue but to me most other establishments oblige with changing the set menu at no extra cost !
The rationale for the additional charge needs to be thought through by the management so that the customers dont walk away with ' a bad taste ' and choose alternative venues of which there are plenty !

Cool designed space absolutely sub par service. Waitress brought out meat selection prior to asking for drink orders. Then she disappeared. Two wines requested were not available. No less than 3 times I had to get up to find the manager for assistance. For the high price the delivery stank. 9 physician and executive associates disappointed. Manger invited me back for a free drink next time as a token of his concern. Thanks but not ever coming back.

Das Essen war grundsätzlich gut. Bin mir aber wenn es um die Qualität des Fleisches geht besseres gewohnt. Ambiente war ok, leider war unser Tisch wackelig und man konnte ihn nicht reparieren. Die Musik im Restaurant war eindeutig zu laut was eine Unterhaltung erschwerte.

I understand that the restaurant is Argentinian and the meat was very good. But the wines were poor and very expensive and three wines I ordered were not in stock.
Overall, this restaurant is way overpriced.

Gaucho has the best quality meat in Town cooked to perfection. Although full our table felt exclusive & private. The greetings however, felt forced & scripted & it took at least 2 attempts before our waiter appreciated that we did not need or want his advice on the menu.

The atmosphere of the restaurant was wonderful and authentic - the black and white with chow hide trim the vast wine display seen through spotlessly clean windows and low lights. The staff were really friendly with great product knowledge and the uniforms were well co-ordinated and with similarities but with differences to the roles performed on the floor. A very polished smooth flow to the whole night.

We are big Gaucho fans. My husband regularly visits their London restaurants, so he is very familiar with the brand.

The servers were very knowledgable and made suggestions, without coming across as too pushy. They really took the time to chat with us, and although Gaucho can be described as an upscale steakhouse they were very down to earth and approachable.

The service really did make the meal. Food was excellent as always, but our waiter was topnotch. Well done Gaucho Dubai for finding exceptional talent.
