We visited gaucho for our wedding anniversary. We had an amazing experience, the food is excellent and we were looked after by Rob who helped us with our wine selection and food order. We enjoyed empanadas for starters and I had fillet for main and my wife had the fillet special,we shared a mushroom side. I managed to squeeze in some ice cream for dessert and the chef wrote happy anniversary on the plate which was a nice touch. Overall a magnificent time was had and we look forward to returning and being served by Rob

A frustrating start to dinner, as the menu comes with tiny red writing on white to be read with candlelight. `The starters were a bit style over substance, with tiny uptight squares of tuna to be mopped up with really quite lovely accompaniments. The tuna should have been unctuous. The steaks however, faultless, as were the sides. Service was impeccable!

We had a superb early evening meal here on Monday just before the Westlife concert at Leeds Arena.
We were shocked that the restaurant wasn’t full especially as it was bring your own alcohol on a Monday night.
The waiters were fantastic, bringing us ice buckets for our Tesco Prosecco and ciders!
Brilliant explanation of the different cuts of meat available via a real meat board.
The food was truly excellent. We ate from the 3 course lunch menu for £26. An absolute bargain given the quality of the food.
We can’t wait to return!
Just as an aside (although we managed!) - not overly child friendly as no high chairs or baby changing facilities. The food made up for this though!

Both had steak which was tough, we cook better at home, very disappointing. We did mention this to waiter but we got some rubbish response. We didn't even have a steak knife - in a steak restaurant!!
However, the starters of empanadillas were delicious.
Afraid we wouldn't go again.
Rather overpriced. We took advantage of taking our own wine which is excellent idea, pleased we did as prices were high.

Staff appeared stressed and frantic dashing around and one steak came cooked incorrectly. Whilst it was replaced, it meant we were not eating together. No apology was made at the end of service nor was any gesture of good will made. Requested for the main door to be shut but was told we had to wait a few minutes despite being in a draft. We have never had a bad experience at gauchos previously, so it was a real shame that it was not up to the usual standard. It was also a birthday celebration which made it all the more disappointing.

They only think is that I found it very bright and that the lights just needed dimming for a little nicer atmosphere. But other than that it’s fabulous!

Not good value for money, and considering you are a specialist steak restaurant, I wouldn't expect blood on the plate, clearly not rested long enough.

Wines very expensive, for the quality of wine.

Gaucho can’t be beaten, amazing staff, fantastic food and brilliant calm but buzzing atmosphere. Whenever we visit Leeds we debate giving other places a try but always end up coming back here, for the simple reason that it is truly the best restaurant in Leeds. Looking forward to our next visit already!

The service was excellent, with detailed descriptions of the different cuts of meat well explained. It is expensive, but the high quality of the meat justified the cost. What was harder to justify were the prices of the starters and desserts which seemed to be twice what you'd pay elsewhere for similar fare. It also grated a bit that the restaurant deemed it necessary to add a 10% service charge to our bill (there were only 6 of us - it's not as if we were a big party). We would have voluntarily given a similar amount, but were very tempted to strike it from the bill altogether.

Thanks for taking the time to leave a review, PaulH. I'm happy to hear you had a great experience at Gaucho. To clarify our policy on service charge, it is standard across all of our sites but is at the guests discretion whether it is paid. I will certainly pass your feedback onto our operations team. Thanks again, PaulH. Hopefully see you soon.

From the minute we arrived we received the same level of service and food quality as we would had we been paying full menu price. The portions are smaller using the Groupon deal but we were still full on finishing.
Can’t fault this deal at all. £50 for three courses and a glass of fizz for two! Just amazing. Get yourself down there as soon as possible! Thank you Gauchos Leeds. Top food, top service. Perfect.

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.
