I went last Saturday with my girlfriend to Gaucho at O2. I used to go to Miller and Carter and I decided to change my plans because all my friends and colleagues recommend me this place, but I had a really bad experience with the food, when I ordered my steak I said to the waitress to bring me the tray to show me the meats and the sizes, I choose a big fat steak a little bit bloody, well...they brought me a complete fat steak extremely dry, with not flavour at all! I had to put ketchup on it!! imagine how dry was! my girlfriend left half of her steak. I don't mind to spend money if the food is good but to go to this place a spent 114 pounds and to have a terrible food, I don't think that's ok, I called that day at 9:00 pm but they didn't pass me to the manager because "apparently" he was away.

Loved this restaurant, would definitely recommend it to anyone who loves meat. We had an excellent round table with plenty of room. Some of the seating in the restaurant was very low down, so really pleased we didn't get a small table, with low chairs

Went for dinner here before a concert. Meal was superb. Perfectly cooked steaks. The main waiter we had was excellent and very attentive. The other staff also helped looking after us like pouring wine, clearing plates etc so the whole service was very efficient. We had a good view at the balcony window over the main entrance area.

All in all an excellent, enjoyable meal. More than happy to pay the 12.5% service charge.

Upon reservation we said we would arrive early for a drink at the bar. When we got there we were told that the bar was being renovated so we couldn’t go in. After some discussion, we were told we could go to the small second floor bar only. The restaurant emptied completely on this floor when we were still eating and the bright lights were put on to tell us we needed to leave. There were still people eating and drinking on the first floor. Not great for a special family birthday dinner with five guests.

We were seated at a table right by the door, the table was wonky and the waitress knew that and didn’t do anything to rectify it. Also despite having my chair in as far as it comfortably could be, my chair was constantly being knocked by other waiting staff as they rushed passed. Other than that, the food was good.

Gaucho's pretty much back to its best IMO.

Last couple of times we've been we were underwhelmed and would not have ranked the value very highly at all. Average service, average food. At best.

This time they were back to their best. Service was excellent and the food top notch. Hit the spot perfectly between a run of the mill chain and a Michelin star restaurant.

Not cheap (commensurate with the above), but worth it this time.

Only demerit - the seats seem to have shrunk in the wash! Almost felt like sitting on primary school chairs (a slight exaggeration, but the seats were a good 6in too short in my view).

Nice to see tres leche cake back on the menu (coconut this time - very, very good). Steaks cooked well. You just need to bring back English Caipirinhas - preferably in the next 9mths (my now wife and I dined out on these for our first date!). Brambles are nice but not the same.

Staff friendly and very accommodating even though were a bit late for booking. Very knowledgeable and credit to Gaucho. We all had a great time celebrating a birthday and staff made sure we had a special meal to remember. Will definitely return next time visiting o2. Thank you so much.

Always rate the Gaucho but the O2 restaurant is somewhat more frantic than others - i remain 'on the fence' about the experience over the expense.

We all said we would have preferred Nandos, whilst the steak was lovely everything else wasn't, the table was wobbly (broken) the chair immovable and not comfy and all just a little shabby.
Not was I remembered or what I want to repeat.

Our waiter was fantastic, our food was excellent.
My only issue is this; We ordered a bottle of merlot -around £28, we were then told it was out of stock can we recommend "x" we agreed without questioning the cost, till after the bill was paid - it was almost double the merlot bottle.
Waiter offered us a free try of their one off pancake dessert, very nice guy

Service was OK, but felt very rushed. It was like a conveyor belt. We weren't offered a starter and only had one drink each. In and out in less than and hour and £110 wasn't value for money

Absolutely outstanding, table service was amazing. In fact, the setting was so beautiful that I felt compelled to propose to my then fiancée on the very spot! The steak was genuinely eye watering and epitomises the Argentine culture and enriched our first experience.

I’ve been before and the service and noise lev was better on floor 1 but floor 2 was too noisy and chairs aren’t very comfortable. The table behind was very loud and couldn’t hear my partner talking to me.. but overall was good. Food could’ve tasted better
