We bought a three-course dinner for two from Groupon at GBP50. So we were expecting each of us to select three courses each from their special menu for Groupon buyers. And anything else other than that that we order we just pay for them. But when the final bill cane, we realised that we were charged for EVERY dish that we ordered. From the total charges of these, they just deducted GBP50. We feel this should not be the way this works. Incidentally the special menu for Groupon buyers did not show any pricings of the dishes.

On the 20th of April booked a reservation well in advance for 6pm , having arrived I explained I had booked a reservations for 6pm and was told to take a seat by an Asian girl Chinese , who was to begin rude due to look of disgust on her face but I ignored her , I waited 15 minutes at the bar area as advised during this time I saw 4 x customers come in and shown to there table straight away, at this point I quired why I was still waiting given other customers were shown to there table straight away, I was informed by another member of staff they was unsure as to way I was told to sit and wait at this point I was immediately shown to my table feeling discriminated against and feeling some way hence the reason I spoke to a lovely waiter who kindly got the manager I explained to the manager who apologised on behave of the Asian female which I appreciated but feel I was treated unfairly by her and wonder if she will get the opportunity to do it to someone else, as she spoilt my meal as I was thinking about it the whole time I was eating , I have visited gauchos on several occasions over the years and have never been treated like this nor have I never had to write a review , just want to make it clear the food was fantastic as usual but from one individual felt discriminated against and quiet frankly upset she deserves to be sacked.

Very quiet Monday evening, so only about 8 tables occupied, surroundings were great, lovely space to eat
Food beautiful
All staff very friendly, helpful and attentive
Final bill came and they had added 2 x desserts onto the bill, despite us having them included in our groupon deal, issue soon rectified and apologetic
We had ordered 2x extra sides and 2 cokes and because of the surcharge the extra to pay on top of the voucher was still nearly £35.00.

The food and service was amazing. Our waitress was really kind and friendly and made us feel welcome. I had the fillet steak and my partner had the sirloin steak. We had cocktails and a bottle of red wines. I would definitely recommend this place. They even had gluten free bread to start :)

The food was lovely but it’s very expensive. A tiny bit of spinach on the side is£5.
We ordered 500ml of red wine but were delivered and charged for a full bottle.
The bread on the table was delicious but the starters arrived very quickly and before we’d had chance to eat the bread they tried to take it away.
It was very difficult to catch attention of the waiters walking past to ask for the bill. I hate restaurants adding service charge to a bill. This is optional and should reflect the service. 12.5% of an expensive bill is more than I feel they earned.
Enjoyed the meal but won’t go back. 2 starters, 2 steak and chips and 2 glasses of red for £170 is too expensive in my opinion.

Had the most amazing meal at gaucho. My boyfriend an I were made to feel so welcome upon arrival, and the staff were so helpful. We were sat at a table near the door and I am very fussy about being cold so asked if it was possible to move. Despite being very busy they moved us immediately and made sure we were happy. Our waiter than came over quickly and took our drinks order, and showed us each steak and explained the different flavours etc. which was unique and made us feel as thought the waiter was almost our own personal waiter. The steak was one of the best I have ever had, and despite being on the pricey side was well worth it. The dj was a nice touch and we really enjoyed the music was not too loud at all, and added a nice atmosphere. Would 1000% visit again

Date night with hubby had a Groupon deal the food was amazing but felt the price for extra side dishes were expensive £5.00 as the portions were very small
We went the full hog and had desserts which were divine
The voucher price and the extras came to £112
Which I am use to paying £150 for bed and breakfast with evening anything off the menu my normal joint
So I have to ask myself would I go again and yes because the staff were excellent food to die for

I haven’t visited in a while but I must say I was somewhat disappointed with the food and value for money. Steak was undercooked, side salad consisted of just rocket leaves in a bowl and annoyingly they added £15 gratitude (12.5%). Should be up to the customer to decide if to leave a tip or not.

Had booked at table at 21:45, arrived 21:42, got showed to my table at 22:20. Got my food at 23:10. Had ordered the stake as medium got 3 different slices of meat on my plate and they where cooked everything from raw to almost well done.

Been here before but this is the worst experience I've ever had with them. There's alway a long wait but it has always been worth the wait since the food has been outstanding. This time however everything was just poor.

My sons Birthday. Our first visit. Although my plain eating husband didn’t like any of the starters offered &I wasn’t thrilled myself, that’s personal choice.. Service, ambience, Steaks, dessert, and especially the thoughtful non alcoholic birthday shot provided all made for a great evening. Thank you

Went there for a birthday dinner and can't rave about the food enough. I would 100% recommend the panfried scallops as a starter, they were absolutely delicious! The fillet steak and rib eye that me and my boyfriend had were beautifully cooked, and paired with an exquisite bottle of red wine by the sommelier. All in all, an excellent ambience, friendly service and (while expensive) not overpriced at all. We will definitely be returning!

Thanks also to our lovely waitress who brought a birthday limoncello for my boyfriend and I at the end of the meal!

Food was very nice from the starter all the way to the desert. Service was amazing and we were always well informed of options and food quality. Only issue was with the noise level of the music from the DJ which was very dance, electronic which made it hard to always hear conversation.
