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.

We had such a lovely meal, felt very safe with the additional precautions the restaurant had put in place and the food was exceptional, my husband said it was the best meal he had ever had. The service was great and staff very knowledgeable about the menu when we asked a couple of questions. We will definitely (hopefully) be visiting again very soon

Filet steak to die for! Beautiful food and drinks with attentive service, the music / vibe could have been a little more energetic for a Saturday not much atmosphere and for the current situation a break from doom and gloom is always nice! All in all a great evening but please more up beat music!

Great food, four of us went. We had bread and the sausage board to start. Then the 450g Chateaubriand (per couple), with mac and cheese and fries. The stake cooked exactly as we asked, enough for two people with room for desert. Total bill for starters mains and deserts witb a few drinks. £260.
We will definitely go again.

Iv eaten a few of your restaurants and I have to say this was the worst. Am not saying it was bad but compared to the one in Leeds and Edinburgh it was average witch is not what you expect paying £60 a head.

Great meal and good service. The ambiance was upset by two couples who were loud and had clearly booked separate tables to adhere with social distancing so needed to shout everything to each other. This just spoilt what would have been perfect but no reflection on the restaurant.

Gaucho was amazing! I went for my 22nd birthday, they put us in one of the best seats in the place. As soon as the server came over, he wished me a happy birthday, which you dont get in many places!
The food was outstanding, would 100% go again, and in fact i am looking to book again for my boyfriends birthday in February.

If there was any room for improvement it would be minor. The seat we were in was a little dark and the service was slightly too quick. Very small things that are hardly worth mentioning.

An amazing place with amazing staff with an incredible eye for detail.
Would recommend to every steak lover!
