Fabulous restaurant, always excellent service. Food is amazing, and the staff are very helpful in guiding you to choose the right steak and cooking level for you and the steak. One of my favourites in Manchester. Expensive but worth it for an amazing meal.

it was ok, told after the meal that the Monday BYOB conflicted with the January offer even though I had called and checked 1st? My very nice quality Scallops were quite undercooked so you have that raw translucent bit in the middle but I can live with that as you can't start again with scallops in my experience. The oat topping was very unpleasant both in taste but especially texture, it was easily scraped off. My steak was great but my wife's smaller cut was poor, unevenly cut so could not be cooked correctly. We do not return borderline food as it spoils the entire evening and this mistake could only be fixed by throwing it away which we would not want. We paid for the meal in full but the Chocolate fondant was knocked off the bill as they spotted it was not eaten and raw inside. It is amazing what we will pay for! In Gauchos defence it is more consistent than Hawksmoor and at least you tend to get the steak you ordered!
Waitress great, atmosphere very nice.

Yes, the steaks were amazing. The service was friendly and professional from the very start. The service brought out the steak board for us to view and ask questions but most importantly, identify which steak we would like.

The atmosphere was busier than other high dining restaurants and we would have appreciated a quieter corner to chat.

I used to visit gaucho a lot and haven’t been for maybe almost 2 years. The menu had changed (fat chips no longer exist!?) and I feel like their standards had slipped slightly in terms of service and quality. Still a great restaurant, but there are nicer in Manchester now.

Food was amazing and so was everything apart from our waiter christof who spoke to fast and we couldn’t understand what he was saying. Also 12.5% for service is ridiculous on a £200 bill.

The food and service was incredible and the decor 10 out of 10.... just a shame there were only a handful of people in the restaurant when we went on Sunday lunchtime. It deserves to be busier!

We got the chateaubriand to share and it was the best steak I have ever eaten. Maria the waitress for very pleasant and would check on us regularly. Only complaint was that we were left in the bar for a while and people arriving after us were getting taken through to the restaurant first. But once we got to our table, no complaints, the meal was outstanding.

Background music was lovely and the band was good but too loud for the restaurant, couldn’t hear the staff and ended up shouting across the table to hear, place is beautiful and food is great just a shame that the volume was too high

Lovely food and service from staff. It was quite loud though but it was New Year’s Eve so a heightened volume was to be expected. Food was absolutely delicious and lots of choice! (Even for a vegetarian)

On walking into the restaurant the mood was very relaxing. We was instantly chilled out. There was a live band playing which was amazing but at times we couldn’t even hear the waiter speaking. The food was delicious, we liked how we was showed the meats before we chose. We both had fillet steak with peppercorn sauce. The whole experience was lovely and we would definitely come again. The only downside was that the Peppercorn sauce tasted and looked like gravy

Magnificent service to the highest standard. The attention to detail and accuracy is incredible. Best Steakhouse in the country for quality of meat , environment and service. Top quality once again. Only been 12 times this year. Maybe lucky 13 in 2020.

Thanks again.

Ambience is perfect, staff are friendly and helpful and the food and drinks were professionally made and delivered. Honestly can’t fault this place, my favourite restaurant in Manchester by far. Best suited to dates/couples and 1-3 friends than families/groups just FYI.

Food and service were first class, as was reception and all other aspects. Our only concern was the background music which was more apres ski, loud and euro thump, which rather prevented a private conversation.
