Booked for 4.30pm Sunday specifically for Sunday roast. Arrived 10 mins late but advised table wasn't ready so asked to wait in the bar for 25 minutes. Shown to our table in a restaurant half empty. After ordering drinks at 5.15pm the waiter took our food order only to advise they'd ran out of Sunday roast.......Very disappointing as we could see other diners enjoying their roast. Waiter advised that the roast was so popular that they normally run out before 4pm. If it's so popular, make provisions to give clients what they came for on a Sunday, we were not the only table disappointed :-(

Outrageously expensive for meat and 2 veg, £5 for a small tin of frozen fries. Steak is good but wouldnever go back there it's a massive rip off.

Don’t get stuck upstairs in the dark near the staff ext/entrance. No atmosphere, can’t see your food and the draft of a door. Side portions much smaller than usual. This is one of our favourite restaurants and this must be our 6/7 time but this time the portion sizes of the sides were considerably smaller for the same money. Hopefully next time Gaucho will be back on track as we have only had great food in the past. Service was good but we did get forgotten about being at the table we were sat.

The steak was very good but a little disappointed with the chips, as too thin and overcooked. No accompaniment with the meal.

Food and atmosphere were faultless. Staff were very friendly and attentive all the way through. Only downside this time was the table we were seated at for a group of 4 felt as though it was far too small for the amount of food that we ordered along with drinks (cocktails and wine). But otherwise we loved it once again.

Very poor service from start to finish wasn't overly busy and still waited 20min to be saved a drink on arrival managed to get our starter order wrong not once but twice eventually got my starter 25 min after my wife, main course of chateau briand was nice apart from the side of chips weren't cooked. All in all a meal that comes at £210 should be of a standard much higher than than this. Shame because the venue was really nice with a good atmosphere but unfortunately the service, food and drink hugely disappointed won't be returning can think of a lot more better places I'd rather spend my money

Exquisite food and the steak was easily one of the best I have had. But it is expensive and not value for money. They seem to be adding every bit into the bill - the steak should ideally be served with veggies. You will have to pay for the bread as well. the starter portions are really tiny and are not specified in the menu card. Last but not the least the bill came with a 12.5% mandatory gratuity and there was no transparency on that front. Bottom line - good food, efficient service but highly over priced.

We had the 700 g chateaubriand, medium well, and it was perfectly cooked! Delicious and melted in your mouth. Very friendly staff. Our waitress asked if the food for our 1,5 year old daughter should come quicker than ours and that was so thoughtful and kind. The kids also get a set to color. Very nice place, only the level of the music was a bit too loud for us. But overall we will come back!

Lovely service and the food was excellent. Cocktails were delicious and there was a great choice of wine.
The venue in a converted church with monochrome decor was special and the background music had a good mix. If I had one minor complaint it was a little loud meaning that to speak to our whole table of 6 you had to shout but that’s only a minor gripe.
Overall a really lovely evening for my sons 21st.
