Wow just amazing, great service and food albeit I’m 99% sure I didn’t get what i ordered (chorizo with cracklings) the beef I got was delicious and it was just a shame we had to book an earlier table as when we were leaving a live band was just warming up which would have been great. Definitely recommend and will return (if they promise to get my order right)

This was my first return visit in a few years and In truly disappointed by it and won’t return again in the future.

Years ago it felt very exclusive, people dressed well, service was amazing and the best steak I’d ever tried.

I suggested a visit for an anniversary dinner to my partner who’d not been, but like myself enjoys a good steak..... you’ll love it I said...... famous last words.

We were greeted and offered to be shown straight to our table or to have a drink first, of which we chose.
It was clear straight away that the bar man was drunk, slurring his words, his shirt unbuttoned above the waist and spilling drinks over the couple next to us. How he’d gone in noticed or reported until I told our waitress I’ll never know.

We were sat drinking and noticed a lot of the younger crowd (we are 40’s) coming in wearing trainers and baseball caps and being shown through to tables..... I was shocked as I’d didn’t think it would be the type of place to accept this.

After a short while we were escorted to our table which was unfortunately upstairs and very close to the speakers playing out loud dance music and sat around several table of young groups - including said baseball cap and trainers group of which we didn’t fit in. We were dressed up, hoping for a little calm romantic meal but it was just the opposite....

Steaks..... we ordered them Medium Rare but they were very much medium! Rather than wait for new steaks we honestly just wanted to eat and get out of there as soon as we could, so we ate them. I was just disappointed as the whole choosing your cut off a board etc had gone along with the expertly was they were always cooked!!

All in all just very disappointing with both of us joking about wishing we’d gone to Miller & Carter!!!

We had a wonderful time for our anniversary meal. Every member of staff we encountered was very personable and attentive. The food was outstanding and the attention to detail throughout the evening was exceptional.
The front of house staff were very welcoming and our personal server (sorry weve forgotten her name) was fantastic and extremely helpful.
There is keen attention to detail across the board, all the staff that dealt with us knew it was our anniversary and congratulated us and as far as the food is concerned its the best weve ever had. We will deffinatley be back again very soon. Thankyou.

In a word, disappointing. We had looked forward to returning to one of our favourite restaurants but it had changed almost beyond recognition. Yes, the same big room with it’s interesting different levels are still there but that’s about it. Poor service, awful steaks (I have had better bought from my local supermarket), banging tunes that makes the place seem like a club lounge and not a restaurant and ridiculously high prices.

The red wine I had was nice though.

Finally, the other shock was how many young people were there. This used to be aimed at the middle aged, discerning couple but the place was full of twenty-somethings.

It seems that Gaucho has changed for the worst. We will not be returning.

On arrival we was greeted by two very polite staff members who seated us, even though we was slightly early. The service throughout the meal was outstanding, food came quickly and was served at the highest standard. Would definitely return.

Great service, though was asked repeatedly if food okay (waitress and someone else) when courses came which was a minor inconvenience. Food was lovely, amazing steaks and sauces and I love my ceviche starter. Great wine list, lots of Malbec options. The argentine martini was amazing also!
They had a bank playing as it was a Friday night, and they were really good!! I was impressed with the singers voice and the band as a whole were really tight. I hope they’re paid well as they deserve it!

Overall food and service was excellent, high quality steak, good wine list, friendly but non-intrusive staff. The only thing that stops me giving 5 stars all round were the chips (why do restaurants find it hard to make good chips?)

Would highly recommend this restaurant. Never been to the Gaucho in Manchester before, but from the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome and looked after. The food was outstanding and despite there being live music at the time, we could still hold a conversation across the table from each other. A thoroughly enjoyable evening and would 100% go back

Not a great night. They now have a DJ and it’s like being in a nightclub. Food was ok but for the price we expected better and have been before when it was better. Service was not particularly attentive given the number of staff and the fact the restaurant wasn’t that busy.

A dining experience, rather than a meal out. Terrific steak, as steak should be. Between the four of uswe enjoyed fillet, rump, ribeye and a churrasco de lomo. everything was cooked to perfection and served hot. Thank you Goucho, we will certainly be back.

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.
