Good afternoon,

Today was the second time myself and my Fiancé have attended Gaucho’s and both times we could not recommend it more! Our first time we didn’t have a clue how it worked and we had Peter serve us and talk us through everything, he was such a pleasant helpful bubbly person and then to come again today over a month later and we are approached by him again and how he didn’t forget us, with the amount of custom that walks through the door was a shock, he remembered our previous orders and was still just as bubbly and polite. I honestly believe Peter is a massive credit to your team and with the service I have had of him I’d hope I would be served off him every other time I choose to attend your restraint. All other staff are absolutely lovely but I just felt I needed to contact yourselves and tell you how much of a wonderful staff member you have and he deserves so much credit for his services.
I suffer with anxiety and get very uncomfortable in places but I honestly am made to feel at home by him the whole way through. What a brilliant team you have between you all.

Thank you and I can not wait to come again VERY soon,
Rebecca Rogers

Always had a couple of appetisers served free of charge but on this occasion nothing. Steaks were good but not as good as on other occasions & chips were slightly burnt. Lemon meringue was lovely.

Ok for footballer wives or wannabes

Plastic flowers and tired fake deco decor

Obligatory 20 min wait for table with upsale of Cocktails

Food took ages - 45 mins to grill a steak??

Wine list middling but expensive

In short a formula which escaped from Only Way is Essex and a clientele as undemanding as it is possible.

We went here for our 1st year wedding anniversary all i can say is what a joke of a place we had 2 starters which we took back has they was vile then we ordered the gaucho platter which was £100 you get 4 cuts of meat 3 out of 4 was just fat when we complained they did not do anything about it the only thing nice about this place is the doors when we exit the place the interior is not what it looks like on the pictures really scruffy in some places I took pictures for evidence.

Decided on Sunday lunch as a treat last weekend and actually managed to get a table at Gaucho...usually when I try they're fully booked. And I can see why. Food and service both absolutely superb, COVID restrictions explained advance and adhered to. Look forward to returning soon.

For a Sunday roast, I thought it was quite average at best. Meat was over cooked, potatoes were pretty basic and the Yorkshire’s nothing to write home about. At the same price of Hawksmoor, I know where I’ll be heading to next time

We decided to try Gaucho for a date night and was pleasantly surprised! Although it has a very swanky and upmarket feel, it was really comfortable and not majorly expensive for the quality of food and drinks you get! We arrived a little early but were seated in the bar area with no fuss so we happily tried some cocktails to start! Our waiter was extremely knowledgable about the all of the menu and background of the restaraunt and also the wine list...happily tried his recommendations - in particluar the beef carpaccio with the gorgonzola breads were sensational! Perfect date night, atmosphere was also good considering the social distancing taking the fun out of most places - this was still perfect! We will defo be coming back!

Really lovely evening, Francesca served us and she was friendly and helpful! Both had fillet steaks and they were the best we’ve had in a long time. Cooked to perfection and the sides were incredible, mash and broccoli are a must!

The service was amazing, so quick and immaculate service from the staff. The staff were lovely and gave us all the information we needed to know about how the table service works due to the changes from coronavirus so we knew exactly what to do to see the menus on our phone. The food was absolutely gorgeous! Will definitely be back to dine again

Came here for the first (and probably last time) for my partners birthday, after friends of ours told us that it’s the ‘best steak in Manchester’ and overall food standard had been made out to be 10/10.

The food (in my opinion) was extremely average.
The steak was okay... it was cooked perfectly, the flavour was nice, but it wasn’t anything special.
We each had a side of lobster to go with the steak and honestly, I can cook better lobster at home. It was completely dry and bland.
The sides, again, were just atrocious, absolutely no flavour whatsoever. Except the peppercorn sauce... I think that was the highlight (flavour wise) of the entire meal.

The atmosphere overall of the place wasn’t amazing. We got sat right next to a till upstairs, where there were staff stood next to us all night. We had no privacy at all throughout the entire meal. I dread to think how many other guests have come here to have a nice, romantic meal, and had been sat where I was sat, with a member of staff basically sat at your table with you.

Overall experience? Very middle of the road. Especially for the price you pay for food, to be honest, I was expecting a lot more. We each had just 2 juices each with our food and the bill (considering we didn’t have alcohol) was still fairly large. Would not eat here again and I wouldn’t recommend.
