Lovely meal and service, and lovely place. Chips could do with a bit more love as were a bit soggy. Therfore lost a star on the food front. You need a good chip with your steak as the sides are just as important as the main event (the steak).

We've been to Gaucho few times, it's our favourite place and once again, this time did not disappoint! Service was OUTSTANDING! We were seated by extremely polite lady (can§t remember her name, but she's blonde and from Czech Republic).
Young gentleman took over when we sat down and was very attentive the whole time we were there. Really enjoyed it, Thank you Gaucho! Wish you all the best and hopefully you will be able to open soon again

Amazing food on offer. The Fillet steak was perfect however a little over rare for my tastes. Staff were very attentive during the entire stay! We came before the first lockdown, we did this visit before the second lockdown and we will return once we are able to! Best wishes to everyone here.

The service was great, the meat was really well cooked and desserts were delicious.
The low points were a tasteless sea bass ceviche and the music being a bit too loud. Nevertheless, it was a very enjoyable experience.

It was all a bit rushed to be honest. Steaks are ok, nowhere near great. Sides are ok, packet instant mash surprised me. Cocktails very nice. All in was £240 for 3 adults and 1 child- drinks and mains. No deserts or starters. Gorgeous decor. I don’t think I’d go again. Not a bad experience at all but not really worth it.

Overall our meal was fantastic, the restaurant is beautiful and had a great atmosphere without being too noisy or too quiet. Our waiter Peter was brilliant, attentive and friendly. The menu has great choice but would highly recommend the steaks, lovely selection of sides and sauces.

First time dining at Gaucho and it was for my son’s birthday. The whole experience was amazing! The food was delicious and the service was fabulous and friendly. There was a live singer when we arrived which really added to the ambience. The layout and Covid rules were clear and we didn’t feel compromised at all. It is an expensive dining experience but one I was happy to pay for as it was a treat and we will be returning. Thank you for a wonderful service!

Wasn’t told that the water wasn’t free or the bread

Food wasn’t all that great either.

We came for my anniversary and the most they did was cut some strawberries in half and stick two tooth picks in

Fillet steak and sides were good, my children's food was disappointing and they didn’t eat it. The burger just tasted burnt and dry and the chicken was like cardboard. We used to love going here but i wasn’t impressed this time and for what it costs i could go to many other steak restaurants and get better quality food.

Gaucho was busy, which was good to see and they observe government guidelines impeccably, so the family could relax and enjoy the meal. Everyone enjoyed their meal, but the standard seems to have slipped from previous experiences; whether that's because it was so busy, or they've lost/furloughed chefs I don't know. Table service took a while and several items were 'forgotten' until reminded, the wine wasn't decanted either. A good experience, just not Hawsmoor standard

Seated at the top of a spiral staircase which wasn't too bad, aside from being right below a speaker and they had a duo playing live. They couldn't turn it down.

The waiter was overly attentive. You couldn't take a sip of wine, try your starter or start on the main before he was over asking if everything was ok, could he top us up, did we want desert? Sometimes less IS more.

Only negative was they automatically added 12.5% gratuity to the bill. I don't agree with automatic gratuity, especially when not verbally communicated prior to the bill landed on the table.

Sons 21st birthday, setting was lovely, took quite a while to be served, although staff were lovely but busy.

Got the 500g of steak, was very fatty had to cut lots off. Would have liked the server to talk about the meat choices

Starter carpaccio was excellent.
