Gaucho Set Menu: 12–7PM | Two Courses - £24.00 | Three Courses - £28.00 / Electro Brunch Every: Saturday | 11pm - 4pm

Piccadilly is our flagship restaurant, set in a beautiful townhouse just off Regent Street, encompassing the ultimate Gaucho experience in the West End. Impeccable Argentinian steaks, flavours of Latin America and a perfectly curated drinks list are all enjoyed in uncompromised elegance in the former home of a Spanish Ambassador.

This impressive restaurant boasts a variety of unique spaces that soar over three stories. At ground level, you have our warm and welcoming dining room with adjoining weather-proof terrace. As you ascend the original sweeping staircase, you’ll find another dining space with a spectacular open kitchen, where we host our legendary Electro brunch, as well as a myriad of gorgeous private rooms – one inspired by our former Spanish resident.

Lovely food which was expected. However took son out for a special birthday meal ( 16th ) and was not a good overall experience

Fully understand re time of year but when asked to move tables due to the noise, we were moved A couple of tables along.

From what was supposed to be was a special birthday experience , it turned out to be a rather stressful meal.

Busy time of year - so service was slow - we had just got water after half hour - the waiter was very apologetic and things picked up as the meal progressed - but it was a long initial wait.

It was good with the ambience and all. But this was my second time there and it was not as impressive, they mixed up our booking and we ended up waiting for half an hour more before we got our table. The food also wasn’t as great as the first time, the steak was lacking salt but the service after we were seated was good

Gaucho is our "go to" place for steak we never go anywhere else due to the quality of the meat. All staff are attentive and efficient. Only small complaint on this visit was that the carrots were a little too "al dente" for our liking.

I would have expected a much larger portion of the Atlantic cod. It would probably not have fit the palm of my tiny hand. I am a tiny person (5"2 and 90lbs) and I eat almost like a child - it wasn't even sufficient for me. Still very tasty but not enough.

We booked this as an 18th birthday party, having previously visited other restaurants in this chain. Overall the service at the table was very good and our waiter was both helpful and attentive. Our daughter was delighted when he brought out a desert with a happy birthday message for her.

However, the overall experience was dampened by the lower standards of attention to detail, food quality and decor in this Gaucho. We waited in the bar and it took ages to get a drink, then we had to chase up our table to be told it had been ready for us and no one has said anything (despite 3 separate people asking us to confirm our name and booking as we sat in the bar). The toilets were in need of repair, and were low standard for a restaurant of this level. Finally, the eating area on the 1st floor was packed so we were sat far too close to the next tables which made it difficult to hear conversation over the loud party next to us.

The food was nice but again the side dishes were poor and quite underwhelming.

I would visit Gaucho again but not the Piccadilly branch, it really doesn’t match up to the standards of the other branches we have visited.

Restaurant was extremely busy and crammed felt a little canteen-like, was disappointed because have been previously and table was secluded and quiet in the tasteful basement. Restaurant was noisy and our food took far too long to appear (90 mins) also there was no offer of a drink on arrival, we were sent to a bar to order whilst we waited for our table and again the drinks took well over 30 mins to appear.
Shame because the food was fab and our waiter to the table very attentive and pleasant. Wouldn’t return after Saturday.

Service was slow. Quite a delay finding our table as there was confusion regarding its location. We are downstairs. Quite crowded and not much room between our chairs and the next person. Restaurant very busy but there were a lot off staff on duty so not sure why everything took so long. The steaks were tasty but two of them were very tough. We had to request a sharper knife for the filet. That shouldn’t really happen.
We possibly caught them on an off night as I know the reviews here are normally good.

We had specified that it was a meal for a special occasion, we were given a tiny table squashed in-between people so couldn't really talk properly - bit awkward. We waited 45 mins for 2 drinks, when they arrived they were incorrect, when we pointed this out the blonde waitress was moody and rude. Food took so long to come that we asked to cancel the starter as it was getting late (nearly 11pm - our table was booked for 10) we were told that wouldn't be possible. Main's tasted great but the replacement for the incorrect drink didn't come until the end of the mains, so I had waited 1 hour 15 mins for my correct drink and only had tap water until the end of my main. The very slow & bad service totally let the whole experience down, not good enough for a £160 meal really. We come to Gaucho for our anniversary every year but would never come back to the Piccadilly branch.

Lovely restaurant although we won’t be going back on a Friday evening as it was incredible loud with a lot of drunk people! Our table was booked for 7.30. We didn’t get seated until gone 8pm. Service was slow. The food was good although the rump steak was a little tough to cut with a normal knife as steak knives were not provided.

We didn’t stay for dessert as it got so loud and raucous with drunk men that we decided to leave.

Other Gauchos are much more enjoyable.

Service was very good. Food was average, we’ve had better there. We had what I would call the house wine, our selection wasn’t available so we went for the first bottle of Malbec on the wine list rather than the more expensive bottles, it was however dis-appointing, that however was our choice but we have had better house wine there before. It was extremely noisy all night, so overall I don’t think we would visit again for a while.

We were shown to the bar for pre lunch drinks. The barman decided that ignoring customers was a good idea. Ordered their own wine from their own vineyard. Non available because "the boat from Argentina was delayed". Finally found 2 bottles of their own wine. First one was corked, second OK.

Overpriced and trading on former glory. I wonder if their business problems are beginning to have a major impact on the experience they give.

I'm sure the 4 women chatting behind reception and a doorman are all really important to get decent food and wine to the guests. Form over function. A fall from grace.
