£120 bill I paid for a meal for my husbands birthday.
I ordered a shot of Dissarano with my dessert, not realising it would be a large. I was driving so refused the shot when I saw the size of it and was still charged for it.
The steak was a sirloin, my husbands steak was very very fatty to the point he didn’t eat half of it.
£120 bill arrived with a £10 service charge on it. I thought it would have been better customer service to at least remove the shot off the bill.
I have dined at gaucho for years and this visit left me feeling very undervalued.

The Good points

The Beef Burger - good value and tasty
The honeycomb in the Chocolate Ganache - mouth watering

The Bad points

Ordered cream mashed potatoes - received chips
Ordered Med - Well done sirloin steak - received Med to Rare
Ordered two types of beer - had to leave behind so bad

I was so looking forward to something different as I had never been to an Argentinean restaurant -overall a bad experience - our waiter seemed to be a little 'over the top' and was more concerned about promoting the most expensive 400g steak on the menu than being genuine

Great food and great service. My only complaint would be that the tables were too tightly packed making it feel like you were part of the next tables conversations. Not very private

Service was amazing food was great. Veg is overpriced. Noise level was great until it got busy then it ruined our evening so we tried to leave as soon as we could. I think it’s extra noisy with it being a basement restaurant and no windows. It got very hot too.

Steak perfectly cooked and all food was presented well. The only downside was that it was too hot and no air conditioning! Can’t believe gaucho Leeds with those prices only had a temporary Dyson fan plugged in. I was uncomfortable throughout and it did ruin what otherwise would have been an amazing experience.

We have booked a table on Saturday for 21:00 but they didn’t sit us down until 21:30 when I went to the manager and complained about it. There were loads of tables available, so I don’t know what went wrong there.
The food was great, however we ended up having our meal at 22:15.
We used to love Gaucho but after last night, I don’t think we’re going to rush going back there.

First time.... and it definitely will not be the last time!
Thoroughly enjoyed it and the quality of the steaks was exceptional.
A new waitress who had only the week before passed her 'academy' training ... but she knew everything about the menu... and definitely upsold to us.
Loved it!!

We visited for our anniversary and had an amazing experience. The staff were lovely and took their time to explain the types of steak and how they’re cooked. Our waitress took also helped us pick a wine to pair with our meals which was really appreciated. Our meals were incredible, I’d definitely recommend the steamed broccoli. We don’t normally go for dessert but I’m glad we didn’t skip this time as they were fantastic and unique. We had a perfect evening and would love to return.

dissapointed with our visit, we arrived at Gaucho and stood at the desk for a couple of minutes but nobody appeared, we then went to the bar and ordered a drink, the waiter then went to get the manager to book us in. The table was about 15 minutes late but didn't really have an issue with that. The menu was a little confusing especially on the starters, the waitress was very helpful and answered any questions we had. the starters were fine. My wife then visited the toilets and found that there wasn't any toilet paper or hand towels, there were other people in the toilets complaining about this. The waitress arrived with the main course whilst my wife was in the toilet which isn't acceptable. By the time she got back to the table the food was already going cool. We did complain to the manager and he knocked some money off the bill but didn't really seem to take on board our complaints. We have been to Gaucho in Manchester a few times and found it a completely different experience. It wasn't the anniversary meal i was expecting and for me fell way below the mark of what i was expecting.

Been thinking of coming here for some time and was not disappointed. Good food good service (special mention to our table server Steve) and excellent wine. Also special mention for the swivel chairs which made accessibility much easier for me with my joint disability. Would be more than happy to visit again next time we are in Leeds

Well what can I say... Gaucho exceeded every expectation I had. From entering the restaurant I was pleasantly surprised and my dining experience was already begun. The ambiance is simple yet stylish and befitting with the restaurants feel and vibe! The waiter was friendly, attentive but not pushy adding to the special evening! And the main attraction the delectable steaks were amazing, the meal leaving us full and content but not stuffed and uncomfortable. We will definitely returning to Gaucho!

The best part was the service by Rob. It was of a very high standard, He did everything to make us comfortable. He explained the different steaks on offer. We cannot praise him too highly. The venue itself was below ground and needed artificial light. The 2 course lunch itself (we had steak) itself was competent and cooked in accordance with our wishes.
That said, it did not inspire.
It was a pleasant experience, mainly due to Rob, but we would not go again.

Me and husband were celebrating our first wedding anniversary and it was mad so special. The only issue was the noise from a large group but the restaurant otherwise was calm

Really disappointed, the service was shocking, our table wasn’t fully set, had to ask for side plates then cutlery for starters. No one explained the menu, asked about the Sunday lunch simply pointed to back of menu which didn’t fully explain or give how much it was. Slow at bringing drinks. No wait between starter and main. After having amazing service in the past we were really shocked. The food was amazing but we will not return due to the appalling service.

Had an amazing meal at Gaucho - the food was amazing.
Taken 1 star off as had to ask 3 times for tap water before we got some. Also it was incredibly hot in the restaurant, could do with investing in some air con!

Booked for a birthday (surprise) meal. Arrived 8:15 as table was booked for 8:30, didn’t get seated till 9pm if not just after. Restaurant was really busy so small wait was understandable but I had to go and ask to be seated in the end. My table had been booked for a week if not longer and I specifically asked for a a special table, during the week they had said this is booked and sorted but in the night they had not done this.

Although the experience prior to food wasn’t great the Food itself was amazing.

Overall Just upset as I didn’t feel like the meal was as special.

The food was very good quality and cooked excellently.
The service let it down, as staters arrived before the drinks and there was only 4 tables in at the time including us.
We also had to chase the side veg we ordered.
The knives are apparently specially made for the chain but good do with sharpening as had to apply quite a bit of pressure to cut the steak.
I am hoping that the service was just one of those things and everyone has off days, however for the price and the 10% “optional” tip automatically added to the bill, I would expect better.

The waiter got our wine order wrong twice, come on I ordered white he brought red.

There were other people playing music on their phones, so should have stopped that.

I don’t mind paying for good food, but I could have gotten the same meal elsewhere in Leeds for half the price and better service.

I tried but we won’t be back.

Steaks were amazing as you would expect. Wine was fabulous and the wine waiters recommendation was spot on. I was made to feel spoiled as it was my 50th and the complementary cocktail was a nice touch. Our host Rob was such a lovely man and our server Alisha was just great. Helpful, knowledgeable and attentive. I love this place and will definitely return. Thank you for a lovely evening.

My partner and I came to Leeds for a night away, we had previously been to Gaucho in Edinburgh and were blown away with our meal. We ordered that exact meal at Gaucho in Leeds and were very disappointed. The 500g Ribeye steak for two people - I could have eaten the 8 small pieces to myself with the included chips and still have had room for desert. We also waited quite a while for our bottle of water and drinks despite there being only approx. 5 tables being used at that time. Unfortunately on this occasion we were disappointed.

We visited on a Tuesday evening to celebrate our son’s graduation, we had a fabulous evening with attentive but not intrusive service, lovely quality food and a funky ambience. Four of us had the chateaubriand, the remaining members of the party had different steaks, all were melt in the mouth gorgeous. We knew the evening was going to be rich for our pockets but we wanted a memorable experience, it was worth every penny, we left feeling like royalty. Thank you to all at Gaucho, Leeds for an evening that will not be forgotten.
