We had an great time at Gauchos. The food and service were excellent and our server Francesca outstanding. We particularly enjoyed the wine recommended by sommelier Christian who took special care of us. We will definitely return.

Went for my husbands birthday, loved it! The food was really nice, I’m not a steak eater so it was purely for my husbands benefit but he thoroughly enjoyed a good steak being cooked perfectly. As for the non steak options my chicken was lovely and I couldn’t have asked for more than that! They even brought out a little mousse for my husband for his birthday after the meal with “happy birthday” written on the plate in chocolate, I though this was a very nice touch.

Wouldn’t be somewhere I would go for me but that’s as I’m not a steak eater as I said previously but I would definitely go again for my husband and would recommend to others.

We arrived with a reservation and no one was there to receive us, we had to get in, poke a bartender and request to be sat. Ambiance is horrendous to terrible for what it should be: seats very uncomfortable I was feeling the strings of the chair!
Prices are expensive which I wouldn't mind paying for the right place, definitely NOT at Gaucho.
For what it is advertised and one hears... it lacks of everything and is of average quality. Maybe it could be pulled up a lot more to meet standards ;)
Our waiter was fantastic. He made our night. Thank you to him.

The service was amazing as always. Unfortunately, this time the fries were not as crispy as usually and the chimichurry sauce has changed to a pesto kind of sauce.

Still an amazing night out!

We visited the Gaucho Manchester on Saturday 3rd August to celebrate my sons 16th Birthday . I had booked the table on the 18th June and in the special requests explained it was a special birthday, first visit for my son and could we have a nice table.
The lady at check in was a little but flustered but the hostess seemed to know it was my sons birthday and took us to our table...... our table allocation was really disappointing, not only was it only set for 3 people and we were a party of , it was right by where the servers punch in orders and the last chair was hanging over into the kitchen.
We asked our server if we could be moved - and after speaking with the floor manager we were allocated another table - a really small table for 4 people :( Francesca was our server she was great and really looked after us for our whole stay.
What was disappointing around us in the Booths small parties of 3 people !
It seems that like a lot of restaurants the whole dining experience is the last thought and its how many covers you can set up. We worked and saved hard for this experience.

We had been meaning to try Gaucho's for a while and during the Restaurant week there was an offer on for a day when we were visiting so we took the plunge and booked. As it was an offer meal it was very good value for a three course meal but we ended up spending more as we bought a couple of bottles of wine as well. The only side dish you get included seemed to be chips / fries so we had to order a couple of vegetable side orders as well and the sauce is also an extra charge. We didnt mind this too much as the restaurant is lovely and the staff were exceptional, they are knowledgeable about the food and the wines which is a good sign. Overall this place was an amazing dinner and we will now be back on a more regular basis as the food, service & staff are all a credit to the place.

We were shown to our table after a wait, to be given a menu and then left for 20 minutes. After we managed to flag down a waiter our order was taken. Our starters arrived promptly and were very nice. We then received our steaks, with no steak knives. When we asked, we were told by two members of staff that they do not give steak knives as standard as we should not need them. Felt talked down to and made to feel embarrassed about asking in the first place. We asked for a drink and when we realised the wrong drink has been given the staff member had gone and we couldn’t get anyones attention to get the problem rectified. We asked to speak to the manager about our experience who removed the incorrect drink from our bill and the service charge but overall we felt uncomfortable raising any issues with our meal and ended up declining the dessert

The staff were really friendly and attended our table to see if we wanted anything and ask how the food was. The food was delicious, the steak was incredible. My only criticism was i struggled to cut my steak (sirloin medium), I was surprised not to get a steak knife.

My husbands steak had a big piece of fat in it, and the meal is very plain, as you pay extra for any extras. So when you order Steak and chips that’s exactly what you get. The empanadas (small beef pasties) were nice as starters, but small and 1 portion means just 1, and the bottle of wine was overpriced and undrinkable, for £36.
Total cost £129

First time visit to Gaucho, recommended by a friend, did not let us down. Waitress that served us was very friendly and discussed in detail the menu and our options when choosing our steaks. She brought out a board with the different types of steaks and explained what each steak was. Meal was amazing, especially the steaks, cooked to perfection and tasted amazing. Would definitely recommend going for a visit.

Lovely place, nice atmosphere and good service. My husband is coeliac and they seemed clued up and provided gluten free bread and the set menu had choices available on it. It would’ve been quite pricey if we hadn’t opted for the set menu and we struggled to find a bottle of wine in our price range but all in all it was a good experience.

Took hubby for his birthday - our son suggested Gaucho & it was a great choice. Our steaks were great & hubby loved the Old Fashioned cocktails. Had mentioned, when asked if it was a special occasion, that it was hubby's birthday & they decorated his dessert plate, which was a lovely touch. Had a lovely evening - by no means a cheap meal but a lovely treat & would definitely go again.

A larger party than usual this time. Pleasantly surprised to find we were seated in one of the more private annexe rooms that doubles up as the wine cellar. Really added to the ambiance of the occasion as we were celebrating graduation of our daughter and friend. Made our special occasion that little bit more memorable. Good, wine and service were fantastic as always when we visit Gaucho in Manchester.

The Gaucho never disappoints! We visited on a Saturday, starting with drinks in the bar before going to our table. We skipped the starters knowing from previous experience how big the mains can be. I ordered the simple fillet and my friend the spiral cut Ribeye. Both were cooked perfectly as always. We both ordered a vegetable and a potato side dish and everything was as ordered and expected. Dessert options were a little limited but we both enjoyed what we ordered and also had dessert cocktails to accompany. I particularly recommend the Butterscotch Bon bon. We finished off with a nightcap back in the bar, where the lights had been turned lower and the music up. All in all a great Saturday night - thanks v much!

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!

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.
