Slightly disappointing that when we were looking for a pre-theatre meal we got sent to the bar to be sold a drink rather than sat at our table to have a little longer to eat. They also "forgot" to give us the offer menu and gave us the ALC instead. That said, the food was delicious, hot and nicely presented and the carafe of wine was perfect. They did manage to get us three courses in the remaining time and service was efficient and unobtrusive.

Overall I would recommend going here. However, it did not start very well, we booked the set menu not having been here before, so we wanted to try it we booked the set menu special price on OpenTable. We booked for the specific time, before we even settled and had our coats off, the front of house team said, you must order within the next couple of minutes as the set menu stops. No smile, no welcome, it was like I do not really want you to be my guests. Extremely poor for this calibre of restaurant.

I thought this was not appropriate and spoke to the manager, who of course protected his front of house team, and was a little condensending towards me, they should remember, they do not know who they are talking to and what or where they are connected to!

However, things improved immediately, from then on the service was excellent, the food was excellent and everyone at the table enjoyed their specific dishes.

Be careful of the 'hidden' charges on a set a menu, somethings they charge extra for, and we were not informed of this at point of ordering, this didn't ruin the evening and certainly not complaining, but just be wary of this.

They were kind enough to allow us to remain at the table rather than move to the bar as they said they needed the table, so they might have moved those who were booked following us so that was appreciated.

They were kind enough to organise a birthday surprise for one of the guests.

Besides a poor beginning, it was a good evening, everyone enjoyed the meal, the service was very good, the suggested wine was spot on, we would return!

We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of food and service, and by the general ambience of this restaurant. We ate during London Restaurant week and therefore had a special menu deal which was very good value for money. We can't fault the experience and will definitely come again.

I would recommend different branches such as Richmond.
Service not up to standard as you will need to wait at least 15 minutes to get anyone’s attention.
Very loud place, might have been our luck as we had a table next to us shouting and banging tables.

Food was decent however a little over priced.

We had not visited Gaucho in Piccadilly for a couple of years. Unfortunately the ambiance is not the same as before. The starter was acceptable as were the Steaks , Mushrooms and Spinach.

We had booked to celebrate both our Birthdays and made it very clear on the Reservation.
Table after Table were given a celebratory gesture but nothing offerred , until we were leaving when it was too late.

The Restaurant does not offer the complete experience as it once did in previous years.

I have been to a few Gaucho's and this one disappointed. The tables were very close together and you felt as if you had joined the next table. We had an issue with one meal and it took a long time to get a waiters attention. This was a surprise meal for my Wife's birthday, but as we were greeted the surprise was ruined, even though I had emailed ahead to explain the plan. I will not be coming back to this particular restaurant, but I will go back to Gaucho's as the food and service is usually excellent. It was a shame to be let down for a special occasion and for the first visit with my "steak loving" children.

Went to Gaucho’s for an anniversary dinner with my girlfriend. We had been there on our first proper dinner as a couple so went back. Because of this app they knew it was our anniversary and wished us a Happy Anniversary when we arrived. We were shown to our table and offered the wine list (there was no other drinks list). I’m not much for wine so asked what spirits they had.

We didn’t think much of the starters so went straight to mains. we both steaks and was very happy with them. The sides were good too, although the chips were awful, overcooked overly salted kebab shop chips. We ordered our desserts and were pleasantly surprised when both of our desserts were brought out on one board with ‘Happy Anniversary’ written in chocolate. A lovely touch and the desserts were really nice too.

Overall it’s a good but not great restaurant.

The worst customer service I've ever received.

This is a shame because there was a lovely gentleman on a trial shift and he couldn't have been anymore attentive. The food was also out of this world. Our waiter however, was just horrendous.

He couldn't of been anymore uninterested if he tried, which forced me to if he was in ask if he was in a rush and wanted to return to take our order. He was making us feel rather uncomfortable and as if we were an inconvenience.

He then proceeded to be incredibly patronising, saying: "sorry, am I going too fast for you ma'am? I'll go slowly for you ma'am - really sloowwwwwwwlyyyy."

He then proceeded to read the wine list to me at a ridiculously slow rate. This went on for the entirety of the evening. He embarrassed me in front of my friends and our surrounding tables and ridiculed me.

I didn't want to say anything but when I asked for the waiters name (Martin), the hostesses encouraged me to speak to the manager. He was indeed shocked, appalled and incredibly apologetic. It really was mind-blowing how a waiter could be so incredibly rude and sassy to customers!

Having overseas guests, I booked this restaurant based on excellent previous experiences. This night was very poor with unacceptable delays awaiting for all 5 plates to arrive ( not at the same time), steaks were warm and not hot and delays in one service awaiting his accompanying potatoes.
Not a great evening and I expected more.

Booking at 18.15 on a Sunday. Nice concept (showing the steaks raw before choosing), ‘I’ll be serving you this evening etc’, but poorly executed.

The waiter who said he would serve us was rarely seen after the initial intro when the restaurant got busier.

Starter plates not cleared before the mains arrived
Hot side dishes (chips & broccoli) were cold
Side portion sizes were very small, particularly the £5 tomato salad which was probably one and a half tomatoes.

Asked for discretionary service charge to be removed from the bill. They didn’t even bother asking why.

Great steak, lovely wine. Let down by dreadful service. And therefore way too expensive. Go to Smith & Wollensky.

Booked a table on OpenTable, but available times were not ideal. Called the restaurant to see if they had an earlier/more suitable time. Was told they didn't, so kept the original booking. When I turned up the restaurant (outside, downstairs and upstairs, where I was seated), was less than half full and didn't get busier in the 2ish hours that I was there. Despite it not being busy, I had to get up and find a waiter a couple of times when we needed something, including the bill. Other than that, it was a pleasant evening
