Been a few times now and this was the worst, as the area around the o2 has got more built up over the years, the client base for gaucho 02 has taken a nose dive, used to be really nice, special even, somewhere you would get dressed up to go to, now gone a bit chavvy dare I say, group of lads in track suits to one side of us, may have been Gucci and Armani but still a track suit! To the other side a young fella and his girl , he was wearing a body warmer!!
Food in there used to be the best steak you've eaten!!
Now I'd say only just above average , and that's being kind!
I'd expect as good as that in a miller and Carter !!
For me goodmans is a far better dinning experience , better food, and just a better evening, and I'm sorry to say this as it used to be my favourite place, but that's the truth

Service from start to finish was very good, the dark light and decoration was perfect and the all round atmosphere was spot on. I was tempted by the steak which they present to you on a board and must say it’s was the best steak I’ve had in a long time. Reasonably priced, but you’re paying for the quality at the end of the day.

We always choose to eat at the Gaucho before an event at the 02 following many delicious steaks at various other London Gauchos. Sadly this was one of the worse experiences. Time prevented us from having a starter so we went straight into the mains. I ordered a fillet steak with a side order of spinach, mushrooms and tenderstem broccoli. My steak arrived with blood all over the plate, so much so that I had to ask for another plate before as was swimming in red. The vegetables were barely warm.
My husband and two teenage daughters all had the burgers which they said was good( they usually opt for steaks, so they made a good choice this time), but again their sides of chips were not hot. I appreciate it was a busy night but really it just wasn’t good enough.

Nice restaurant however fairly stressful as whilst we had left plenty of time before the concert we were going to, and we arrived early, service was very slow. When we were seated we ordered water which did not arrive, then we were ignored for 20 mins, only being served when we prompted someone to take our order. Food took 30 mins to arrive. So we ate quickly and had no dessert. My cod was very small and would have liked it cooked a couple of minutes longer. Fairly pricy considering what we had. But choice of good restaurants is limited inside the arena.......

We had booked at 5:30 to go for a concert that started at 7pm. We were there on time and were told our table wasn't ready and we'd have to wait at the bar and they would call us when our table was ready. 20 minutes later, worried we wouldn't have enough time to eat, we went back to reception to ask and it turns out our table was ready afterall. We went up to the 1st floor where we waited another 5 minutes to be seated and another 10 minutes after that for our waiter to come and take our order. So even though we booked at 5:30, it was closer to 45 minutes after that we were able to order food.

Our waiter despite being very busy was friendly and efficient and I believe we got the best service we could have from him.

The food was average. The cheese bread which is the highlight of any visit to Gaucho for me tasted different and it was only served with a garlic (I think) butter rather than I believe it used to be normal butter and a chimichurri sauce. I won't judge my steak too harshly as I'm pregnant so had to have it medium well which isn't ever that great but the mash potatoes tasted of not much, definitely not creamy. We had the confit mushrooms which were good and the spinach which again tasted of not very much. Worst of all was there was absolutely no time to even consider dessert as by the time our food arrived and we ate, we had to hurriedly ask for the bill and leave! We always go to Gaucho before our concerts, it's tradition but I feel we might have to find a new place to eat in the future.

Went to Gaucho with 2 friends before a concert in the O2 Arena and as always really enjoyed it. The staff was really nice and when my steak was overcooked they immediately offered to make up for it and we all got a glass of champagne on the house as an apology. When I did get the 2nd steak it was cooked to perfection and was just a lovely piece of meat. Also love the bread they always serve before your food and all our side dishes were nice as well. For the first time we were seated on the 2nd floor and it was nice but I think I prefer the 1st floor and the 2nd floor has no windows and was a bit dark.

We spent a good three hours here and felt relaxed and comfortable we were not rushed from our table.

Nothing is too much trouble for the staff here. Great recommendations always very informative with regards to the menu and matching this to the wine list.

The food is amazing and steak is always cooked to perfection as we like our steak blue most places over cook this but not here and the knife just glides through it. The vegetable side dishes were also cooked well its so nice not to have overdone mushy veg.

We were in time to eat from the set lunch menu before going into a concert at the O2. It was our anniversary so we were seated in a quiet area of the restaurant reserved for celebrations. Friendly it was lacking in colour being made up mainly of dark green leaves with no other salad items eg. peppers, tomato or cucumber to 'add' to it .

Once we got past a bit of confusion about the location of the restaurant (up one floor via the lift), we really enjoyed our experience. The ambiance is great coupled with excellent attentive service helping us with our choice of excellent steak. The food was cooked perfectly. The accompanying glass of Malbec wine complemented the food well.

We were given a lovely table at 02. Service we received was excellent. We both had steaks (rump and sirloin) with broccoli and chips. Very tasty and cooked to perfection. The bread beforehand was also very good. We had a lovely carafe of red wine and delicious desert wine to end our meal. Perfect and highly recommend. We will be back

Nice restaurant, but you have to be over a certain age to get treated properly and you need to look as though you have money for them to come over and serve you, it wasn’t nice to see everyone getting a nice warm welcome and then us they wouldn’t really look at, I think the worst part was that there were plenty of free tables in the main restaurant but instead they decided to chuck us what felt like out of the restaurant because it was all walled off, it made us feel like they had a reputation to uphold and me and my girlfriend were not up to scratch with how they needed us to look.

Slow service. Had to continuously asked to be served
Recieved our main 20 mins before the performance (which we did let the waiter know we were attending) we were going to see.

Had to leave before dessert, and no member of staff acknowledged it. Ended up paying the set menu price even without actually receiving the dessert. Awful customer service.

We had a set menu for £30 pp there were 4 of us. We had one cocktail each and one coffee each. The bill was £240 extortionate! In my opinion Gauchos has gone downhill. Although our waiter Marcus was lovely and when my steak wasn’t cooked right he got it changed straight away.

Also when we first arrived we wanted to have a cocktail first at the bar, there was only one other table occupied in the restaurant and there was no bar staff we had to walk back to front of house to ask for someone

I was very disappointed at first that I had booked a surprise meal for my friend who had never been before to be escorted out the back of the restaurant to sit in a bland area with the view of the inside of the o2. One of the main reasons I chose this restaurant was not only the quality of food but for the picturesque decor. The inside of the restaurant filled with a maximum of 6 tables so space was not the issue. After speaking to a member of staff we were moved, our waiter was lovely and very helpful and the food was delicious.

Great food and service and decor is superb. Only issue was they put £28 extra on our bill. When we questioned it they said it was a mistake and took it off. Just weird and I wonder if they do this often, I’d like to think not but makes me wonder. Beer tasted awful too, stick with wine or spirits. Otherwise all excellent.

Good meal but steak was slightly over cooked and it took a long time to arrive. The drinks also took a long time to arrive and I had to ask where both were. Chips weren’t hot so obviously food was waiting a while before the server decided to got these across to us.

Food was still tasty but the service could have been much better and food could have been better.

I would have probably sent the food back if we weren’t in a rush to see the show, so we decided to eat it and leave.

I would still go back so overall it was a good experience but terribly slow service and unprofessional.
