Food was absolutely unreal and the service just as good. Kane our waiter/host was so accommodating and had plenty of knowledge on food choices and drink recommendations

I'm an enthusiast for the Gaucho brand; I think they generally do offer a taste of Argentina, a view I base on a fair few trips to that great country and visits to many good restaurants there. Steaks are usually well above the generally rather ordinary level found in the UK. The wine list is better than good and currently contains a number of top rate examples of Malbec (of course) and also the underrated Cabernet Franc and Chardonnay which Argentina does so well. The Manchester branch as so far impressed me with the location, room (so much better for an aged gaucho than the London equivalents) and friendliness. Sadly, this last visit was less memorable food wise. The Ancho was poorly trimmed and the server didn't seem willing to pick up this criticism; the cooking could also have been better. Chips were very poor. So by all means go to see this attractive venue, because they can and do get it right here, but I can't guarantee they always will. Great, great wines though!

Very good food and excellent service, the only downside was that two of us wanted chicken but there was only one left. It didn’t spoil the evening though

Fabulous service and on the whole the food was amazing. The sides were a little small for the price but were good aside from the spinach which just overpowered with lemon, but the staff apologised for this and removed from the bill with no expectation of them doing so. Overall a fantastic meal and evening, thankyou we can't wait to return ❤

We had a great first time at Gaucho, everything was outstanding. The food itself was well seasoned and the steaks were perfectly cooked. Our server Nora was very attentive and took the time to explain the menu well (thank you Nora for being so lovely!). There was entertainment for a little while - a singer and guitarist, which we really enjoyed. We will definitely be back soon!

Our first and last time at gaucho. The steak it’s self was good but you would be expecting that for the price, however everything else such as side dishes were below par.

Nice restaurant, service was excellent, food delicious, but for the main course I've asked for my meat to be well done, unfortunately the meat came completely burn. Didn't really enjoy that, but starters and dessert were really nice.
The atmosphere was cool too.

Hannah was amazing! We chose Gaucho for the ambiance and that was amazing, then the food, drink and service surpassed our expectations. The hostesses were wonderful and accommodating to us (my sister is pregnant). The section manager introduced himself and everything was seamless. Gaucho came highly recommended and it did not disappoint.

Overall I really like Gauchos, this was our fourth time.
It was quite busy so assuming that’s why these problem occurred:
- wrong steak to wrong person meaning my partner ate my ‘rare’ steak rather than his medium steak
- the steak I ordered came as blue when it was supposed to be rare. I don’t mind it blue but that could have caused someone stress that wouldn’t of liked it blue
- I ordered vanilla icecream and got salted caramel
- my partner found a small bit of melted plastic in his food. The restaurant did apologise and advise of the mistake and how it happened

I will be going again but I will ring to advise of the previous problems to try and ensure it doesn’t happen again because overall we really do like Gauchos based on our previous experience.

Unusually for Gaucho food was not good. Medium size fillet and half lobster. Lobster was undercooked.
All in all very poor quality and then 12.5% service charge??

Outstanding! (As always). Best steakhouse chain by a country mile! Been hitting Gauchos now for at least 20 years having first attended your former branch off Dam Square in Amsterdam circa 2002! [Now called "Cau" I believe?]). Made up when they opened the Manchester branch!

What a place and what an experience. I loved absolutely everything about the restaurant and have to give a special mention for the incredible staff. Michal really looked after us and chose an incredible bottle of red to go with our meal. Cindy was outstanding and helped me when I had an issue. Bravo Goucho, I’ll certainly be returning 😌

We were slightly early for our booking and were invited to sit in the bar or be taken straight to our table. We chose to sit in the bar before sitting down to eat. Staff were very welcoming and friendly. On the way to our table, we were asked about our day and asked the reason for our visit. I explained it was my birthday and this was instantly passed onto our server who wished me a happy birthday when we were seated. All staff were extremely attentive and lovely. The food was OUTSTANDING! We both ordered desserts and mine came with a little candle which was such a lovely touch! Everything about this meal was perfect and I would highly recommend.

Once again guided by the knowledgeable staff, particularly Peter, on our choices. As my hubby and I chose different steaks Peter recommended a wine that would be perfect for both. He was spot on. We will be back. Thanks for a lovely experience, it was our first post Covid outing and it felt like old times.
