Ok. Music too loud and main course could be seen to be hanging around 5 mins before waiters got it too table. Under lights however food not as fresh as if delivered direct to table.

Great location, staff were extremely polite and very knowledgeable both about the food and wine. A must go place for steak lovers. We had the chateaubriand medium rare. It was absolutely beautiful. Coupled with a very good malbec. The sides were fantastic too.

We visited Gaucho. after our son’s graduation ceremony. One member of staff overhead our reason for being there celebrating his graduation. When they brought his desert, the had written Congratulations on the serving dish. A great touch, without being requested by us! Food was amazing, as were staff. Would highly recommend!!

I have only good things to say about my experiences with Gaucho restaurants. The only thing I would like to change as a customer, is the pre-calculated tip-rate at 12,5%. As a customer, this is my way to show how satisfied I am with the experience. I would like the possibility to tip only 5% or not at all if I'm not satisfied.

The food was fantastic! The service was very good! Too loud music we think, but it became little better during our dinner. Actually, the music destroys a lot of what could have been a exceptional experience.

The food was OK didn't have steak but instead the lamb chops which were a bit burnt. The service from start to finish was phenomenal. A special shout out to our waitress. Really small girl who went the extra mile to make our anniversary a little special. A very professional and knowledgeable individual.

We had a fantastic evening for our anniversary in Manchester Gaucho.

Our table was upstairs, the lighting in the corner was a little dark but romantic.

The service from Sarah was friendly, quick and attentive and the food was exquisite.
I had the Lomo Fillet Steak and my partner had the Churrasco de Lomo which were both cooked to perfection.

Brilliant atmosphere, amazing food and fab service. What more can you want!

My partner was actually sick in the toilet whilst we were there. The food was way over priced for what we had and ruined our anniversary meal. The mac and cheese was cremated this was taken off the bill but was only £5 off a £105 meal. The tip on the bill was just taken without being asked if we wanted to apply that. We left totally dissapointed and will not be recommending to anyone.

Excellent Food, Not being in a restaurant with loudish music before, but to be fair, they had the mix right,
some modern some classics, so actually gave the restaurant its own feel about it, rather than be the normal classical music in the background.
Food cooked to perfection, not the cheapest steaks, but the best !
Waitresses and Waiters very polite and helpful.
Visited on a busy Saturday night, every table full, service was spot on from start to finish, Thankyou Gaucho !

My boyfriends birthday. We had outstanding service throughout the evening even though the restaurant was full and all waiters were rushed off their feet. Food was beautiful but that was expected from Gaucho. The atmosphere was great. Thoroughly enjoyed and we will be returning.

We went on Friday evening as a family and found it way too loud. First impression, am I walking into a night club or restaurant. I realized in the end there was a live DJ. Great for younger couples and selfies as it’s the place to be seen. A very beautiful converted church space for sure. But for food and service, there are other better places else where. It lacks class, all show and no real substance. The toilets are dark, dingy and yes loud music, why!!

The bar in the entrance of the restaurant is so dark it’s kinda seedy.

The special offer menu was misleading in price, everything is extra. But never mind, I’ll never go back again.

I booked Gaucho for my Birthday with my boyfriend, the atmosphere and place was beautiful. We were waiting a little while for our food but however the staff were extremely sorry and very friendly which therefore made the experience enjoyable depsite having waited. The quality of the food is fantastic. As well as this they brought out a little surprise birthday dessert, which I thought was a lovely touch. Thanks Gaucho.

Unfortunately we were really disappointed, a top priced restaurant you expect to be able to get dressed up and have a top class meal, we were surrounded by tracksuit wearing numbnuts and DJ playing dance music felt like I was in a nightclub!
Starter was cold and service very slow
We won’t be returning I’m afraid

The place has a good vibe and is funky. Sadly it just wasn’t the best overall dining experience as my ribeye steak, which I had ordered medium rare came out rare/blue. Also, the olive martini I had ordered came with lemon instead. To be fair to the waiting staff, they brought me a fresh olive martini and provided a new steak as opposed to cooking the one I had. They were apologetic, took my steak off the bill and have since followed up with offering me complimentary ‘bubbles’ at a Gaucho nearer to where I live. Sadly, by the time my steak had arrived my dining partner had eaten theirs. Also, we were seated in close proximity to other tables, which isn’t my preferred choice as it makes for a less intimate dining experience. It’s probably a case of we were the unlucky ones on the night but regardless it wasn’t the dining experience I had hoped for.

Overpriced sadly. We were a family of five, the food was ok, nothing special, had the same in miller and carter for a fraction of the price. The sides were sparse and also my steak was overcooked. We had 4 beers and 3 cokes. The bill came to £305 which included a discretionary £32 tip, one where you can’t really say no to, even though the service was nothing special either. The visit was for my son’s birthday Which I mentioned when booking. There wasn’t anything special about it apart from the extortionate price.
