Celebrated our 1 year anniversary here but it was kept as surprised from my wife. Loved the atmosphere and the staff were great at explaining the full menu. They did not hover over us and left us to enjoy our meals but also did have a very friendly chat. Would highly recommend this place, for the amazing food and vibe.

Every time we visit the food and service are outstanding. You are made to feel so welcome from the moment you enter to the moment you leave. Personally I can’t fault anything , food and drinks are great obviously the price to pay reflects on the quality of the meal so with this in mind you can’t really complain. 5* from me each time I have been. I always look forward to returning each time I come to Manchester and wouldn’t even contemplate of going anywhere else.
Keep up the good work Gaucho!

We enjoyed our lunch at Gaucho. The welcome was warm, the food tasty and service very friendly and efficient. It was just a shame that the restaurant was so quiet whilst we were there... so not much atmosphere at all.

The restaurant had great character incorporating lots of original features. We were fascinated by the organ and all its pipes which brought so much character to the place We all opted for the 3 course set menu for £26 and all had Steak for main course and all 3 courses were all lovely. The waitress and waiter were very attentive and a very enjoyable Sunday afternoon was rounded off with an amazing group singing soul and gospel songs. Will definitely visit again.

Iv eaten at a lot of restaurants and alot of steak houses this is a really nice place the steak was bang on unfortunately the sides was not we order mushrooms as a side which was cold not warm cold also i ordered a bernaise sauce which was also cold not warm like it should be but cold. The waiters was great but tried to tell me thst it was meant to be cold which i dont agree with the starter was a sausage platter which was really tasty but a bit pricey for some sausages no sauce with it or garnish overall i would go again but i woudnt be rushing to book.

Booked an early table (5pm) as we were going to a concert. The restaurant was very quiet but that’s to be expected at that time! The service was amazing, our waiter was fantastic and really made the experience laid back and enjoyable. The food was unreal! Both steaks were cooked exactly as we had asked and the chips and sides were delicious. Great place for a special occasion. Food pricey but that’s to be expected for the quality of service and ingredients!

Booked a table online for father’s day, my husband, daughter and I were seated quickly and all staff were very welcoming and polite. There was quite a long wait for orders to be taken despite it being relatively quiet. The food was very good and the lunch menu offer was really good value in my opinion. I got two course with steak supplement of £6 for less than my husbands one main. They had a live duo singing with another man playing a keyboard. They were outstanding but it did raise the noise level so sometimes hing to be aware of on a Sunday. Would recommend and would go back for a special occasion again.

Steaks were impressive and delicious. Service was friendly. My friend ordered a horrible bottle of wine though that we couldn't drink. Not sure what the rules are but the waiter couldn't help as it wasn't corked. So 50 quid thrown away.

Everything was outstanding. From the moment we walked though the door we were met with exemplary customer service. After putting coats and umbrellas in the cloakroom we were taken to our table, where we were greeted by Brad who looked after us all night. He had a thorough knowledge of the menu, and recommended steaks to us based on the preferences we shared with him. The sommelier took our wine order and I have no doubt would have helped with any questions if we’d had any. The food was one of the best meals we’ve ever had. Yes, it was an expensive evening, but it’s rare that you aren’t able to find fault at any point in a restaurant visit...but I genuinely can’t think of any!! I’ve definitely found my new favourite ‘special’ restaurant.

In my opinion people are coming to restaurant to eat. Food was not best... too salty and portions are very small. Kids menu is very poor. Only few dishes to choose which are very basic like from take away chips, burgers, chicken trips etc. Restaurant looks amazing. I wish food was on a same level. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Location of restaurant is also very good. But honestly you need to do something about food because people coming there to eat , not to admire beauty of restaurant.

Thank you for dining with us on Wednesday and for sharing your feedback of your experience with us. It is great to see that you enjoyed the restaurant's decor and ambience and the team were friendly and accommodating to your every need. In terms of the food offering, it is unfortunate that you did not think there were sufficient variety on our Children's menu and that the portion size was small. We thank you for your feedback and will pass this onto all relevant departments.

Immediate impression on being taken into dining area was that it was a canteen with low lighting. There was no intimacy or relative privacy at my table for my 38th wedding anniversary. The menu, as a first time visitor, proved to be un-necessarily complicated and hard to follow. The waiting staff did try to help but were unsympathetic to my discomfort with the difficult menu. My first 2 red wine selections were not available. I settled for the house red when I really wanted a special bottle for my anniversary.
The food was very good and well presented.
I was overcharged for two drinks that my wife had.
Normally, I would have had the 12.5% gratuity inclusion on my bill removed since the addition of a gratuity to my bill is entirely my decision and not yours. By then , I just wanted to leave so I let it go.
Very disappointed with the restaurant but not the food.
My 38th wedding anniversary fell a bit flat as a result and I now need to make that up to my wonderful wife.

Gaucho used to be fantastic. The service was very slow. We waited so long for drinks at the bar that we had to be seated by the time they arrived. Average service form a gentleman calling my husband mate frequently. Lack of ambience. Cleaning/ Steaming glasses on the next table. Staff appear to be socialising amongst themselves rather than being attentive to customers. No one to take payment at the end. The list goes on. First anniversary a disaster!

Decor is remarkable if you like bling
Noise is like being in a nightclub but you only want a quiet dinner with friends
Food is pretentious and overpriced
Service is good but don’t appreciate the 12.5% service charge added to my bill nor the subservient sarcastic bowing when I said I had left s tip under my plate
In and out in an hour.
Akin to fast food.

Great food, BUT wine is far too expensive, with only a few bottles less than £50, and only 2 Malbecs (Argentine wine) as half-bottles. Annoying service at times with staff topping up wine when asked not to, but then not being attentive when you do want something. Steaks are excellent however, although strange unwanted new trend with tira de ancho being chopped up prior to serving (I can cut my own steak!). They should also provide a steak knife with the meal. Kids menu great value less than £10. One thing i can't abide - cheekily adding a 12.5% service charge on the bill - a service charge is meant to be at the diner's discretion, is presumptuous to add your own tip!
