Very good meat and wine menu. However is a shame the decor in the place, dark with uncomfortable led lights and loads of mirrors...

It was a quiet evening but even with this the service was quiet slow. The member of staff manning the bar was excellent and helped us choose a good bottle of wine for our meal and also shared a really good bar recommendations for after our restaurant visit. I’ve heard a lot of hype of Gaucho in the past so was excited to visit. I have to say that the sides were poor and one of our steaks was inedible but this was later removed from our bill. Overall it wasn’t the experience we were expecting but wasn’t terrible.

The staff and food were amazing, I suggest booking a booth table if possible. We were given a table at the bottom near to a table of people very loud in hoodies and caps and it very much ruined the mood of our anniversary. Not the fault of the staff just unfortunate for us.

Really lovely meal. We had the chateaubriand with two sides and two sauces. One of the best cooked steaks we have had to date. Gorgeous interior, friendly staff. We used a Gripon voucher so our value for money was excellent. Thank you Guacho.

There are a lot of nicer gaucho restaurants around the country, the service in Leeds is awful compared to the amount of money you’re spending. The waitress was rude and when we asked where our drinks were after 20 minutes of waiting for one coke, she brought it over and no apology or anything. She quickly wanted to take our order and rush off. There was no showing of the meat like usual. Quite bad for saying you pay a service charge

We went back to gaucho on Saturday after a disappointing mother’s Day and well it was amazing as gaucho normally is :) Scott had a lovely bottle of wine ready for us and Rob our waiter was amazing ! Informative about the meat and just how a waiter should be in a 5 star restaurant. The food was beautiful as always and Scott is a credit to the team we appreciate everything he did for us we felt like royalty ! We will be back :)

Food was delicious and all the service staff seemed to be doing their best, however timings were an issue. Our table was booked for 19.15 and we weren’t seated until 20.00, although we were given a table at the bar to enjoy some drinks til we were seated and these drinks were taken off our bill as a good gesture. However once we were seated and orders taken, we then waited at least an hour for our starter and over another hour after that for our mains. Once the food arrived it was very well cooked and enjoyed by all of us, and given a complementary dessert for my Nan as it was her birthday! Again, service staff very polite and helpful, food was delicious, just very very disappointed by the timings, not sure if we would return again due to this!

Been a long time favourite but we are not regular visitors. Personal gripes have been menus that can be confusing and difficult to read in the low light. True more so when the menu had a light font and some metal bits to make it extra difficult to handle. However the food and service have always outweighed these minor bits.

It was a place that we enjoyed taking friends to but it used to be difficult to get a table. With the current excellent dining choice in Leeds it seems easier to get a late booking at a reasonable time, which is good for customers, but perhaps not so for the restaurant.

Good customer service means a lot and on a visit a couple of years ago I was looking at the excellent wine list and mentioned to one of our guests that I was struggling to find the wine that we had ordered several months before on the chance it was still on the list. The lady looking after us disappeared and came back in a couple of minutes with a small card saying that this is the wine we ordered last time in. Outstanding customer service.

Took my lovely wife on Friday for a date night and had a very good time. A little less busy than we usually found but a great, ambiance, good cocktails, a good menu, excellent service with strong wine advice and great food.

Still a little heavy on the price side for me, but for a treat night out we will happily return.

What has happened!!! Firstly I have to say the steak was good ...... but. Out of 5 menu cocktails they did not have the stock to make the first three. Follow that by the wine we ordered not being available. So next thing is go to the wine list no information about the wines just a name and year of production and price. Nice guy came to explain the wines but no substance in any of the advice. Stick a finger on the list and hope for the best. All in all spending 2£00 you should be wowed. Gaucho Leeds just feels like a tired chain restaurant that’s lost it’s soul. After 10 years of patronage I won’t be going back.

Absolutely superb service. Special occasion for my sone 21st birthday, it was definitely exactly what we wanted. Our coats were taken and kept safe, we were shown to the bar and then escorted to our table when we were ready. The hostess’ made us feel really welcome.
The food was exceptional most of the group agreed they had some of the The best steaks they had ever had. In addition the steak board being presented to us was a great touch.
Finally, some of us had desserts including my son who’s 21st it was .... without prompting his dessert was presented as birthday confectionary with a candle and “Happy Birthday” on the plate. It was a fantastic touch that really topped the meal off.

First of all, have to say the food is outstanding. However, it’s pricey and paying £20 for a plate of (3 small black pudding, then 3 small, 2 medium, 1 large chorizo) sausages is a bit of a rip-off. £13.50 for 2xScallops and some black pudding (although all very tasty). Fillet steak is amazing.
Service was slow and when they came to take the food order we’d not been asked what drinks we wanted (although we were asked earlier about drinks but were not ready).
Service charge was automatically added but should be up to the customer whether or not they think a tip is due. Tipping is not mandatory in the UK.

Me and my boyfriend both went for his 21st birthday meal to start the celebrations and we was greeted so pleasantly. When we first arrived we was seen to by a young gentleman with dark hair and a quiff and really blue eyes! I didn’t get the guys name but he was very polite. We have been to gauchos before and love it every time, everyone mentioned my boyfriends birthday to him and he said to me he felt very special and felt like he was being “treated as royalty” this is how the lovely staff in gaucho make you feel. Very welcoming customer service and the food, as always was amazing!

Service and steak excellent which you would expect due to it been a steak house.
The interior is very in keeping with the dinning theme.
I did think the starters were very over priced we got 2 scollops in a shell and the shell was the only thing special about the dish.
The steak choice is excellent and a nice touch showing a discussing the cuts of meat on the steak board at your table.
I couldn’t understand why all the steaks came with either chips or salad but you could buy sides of sweet potatoes or mash which I would have preferred, maybe the sides were for the other dishes off the menu.

The end result was a bill for £146 for two with drinks starters and mains so not bad value.slightly checky adding 10% service charge to the bill without asking if we wanted to leave a tip!

Me and my partner went to Gauchos Leeds for our anniversary. We were welcomed warmly by our waiter who asked us if we were celebrating anything, we said our 4 year anniversary. As the night went on the food was spectacular, we couldn’t have asked for better. Just before we asked for our bill the waiter brought a little plate of desserts for us with a lovely anniversary message, it was the cherry on top. Would definitely recommend to anyone and everyone.
