Piccadilly is our flagship restaurant, set in a beautiful townhouse just off Regent Street, encompassing the ultimate Gaucho experience in the West End.

Prices have gone up since my last visit but quality of food has gone down.
The chips were over cooked and hard. Bread was served with normal butter rather than garlic one. Steak price went up to almost £30 for 300gr.

Vegan options are a joke .
Burger for £17 for size smaller than McDonald's.
Not what I remember of Goucho

The service from Giacomo was excellent - he was warm, friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. Our slight disappointment came with some elements of the food: whilst the starters were impeccable, as were our steaks, the chips didn’t fill the bowl and the green beans were undercooked (not even at al dente stage). Additionally, my steak hadn’t been properly rested- there was quite a bit of resting blood on my plate. But it was otherwise perfect. We were warned to be careful of our pudding because it was hot, but it was, at best, lukewarm. Not what you want for a £15 tarte tatin! Having said that, it was delicious! All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our evening and would come again, despite the slight imperfections.

We went to celebrate our 11th Wedding Anniversary. The waiter who served us was lovely and offered us a glass of champagne to celebrate which we thought was a nice touch. Although the food was nice for us we do feel we had a better experience at Gaucho in Manchester.

Poor to be honest. Gaucho is normally a girly high standard but by any standards, Luke warm food, no atmosphere and indifferent staff made this an extremely poor return for a restaurant that is relatively expensive as well.

Really good experience, fantastic good and brilliant service, disappointing that although it was clear other diners knew of the option, we were charged for a bottle of water when a carafe of tap water was an option we weren't offered.

We were spoken to only 3 times. When we sat down, to order food and drink, and when I had to ask for the bill. In a London steak restaurant you would expect to want for nothing and for the service to be spotless. On this occasion not only were we barely spoken to, nobody checked at any point in the evening if our food was nice. The mashed potatoes tasted like laughing cow soft cheese and my steak was undercooked. Nobody asked at any point. We mentioned when we received the bill that the service was poor and we never ordered a bottle of mineral water which we had been charged for. The manager said ‘I’m sorry let me take the water off’ and then made an excuse that there were plenty of staff yet the service was poor, which made little sense to us. The fact that we had such a negative experience on our anniversary and all the manager could muster was a refunded bottle of wine and a poor attempt at an apology was the icing on the cake. So I paid the £100+ bill and left promptly. To say this ruined our evening would be an understatement.

It all went well until I realised after leaving that we had been overcharged by the addition of a Bottle of Hildon water £5 plus service of 12.5%, we specifically had asked for tap water and were served same ! It took a week to get a response with the Manager insisting on ringing me to refund on the card used which I did not have with me! Shabby tactic.

Came in to have a Classic Burger meal. I was told there was no burger and ended having to have just fries.
Just to then find out when I was paying the bill that they actually had the burger but just didn't have the buns. I feel I could have been told that when they took my order as I would have been more than happy to have that with my fries.
Frustrating they still felt the need to charge Gratuity at 12.5% of the bill.
Not impressed at all.

The ladies did seem to take the "smart casual" dress code a lot nearer the "smart" than the men - I suppose it averaged out.
Well prepared food, good portion size, nicely presented, flavoursome. We had a good time

the one thing that really annoys me is the food comes out cold, the chips were completely cold, when you pay the sort of prices then you do expect the food to be warm. the steak was also a bit on the cool side.

Disappointing.
Celebrating 34th wedding anniversary with family. Steaks were very good. Espresso Martini was worst ever had so sent it back. Peppercorn sauce tasted of lamb. My wife does not like lamb so we asked for it to be changed. Replacement sauce was the same and chef advised there was no lamb in it.
My daughter had asked for cake to be brought out to celebrate the occasion but it didn’t arrive
The booths around the room were well lit but our table had little light and I needed to use phone to read menu and bill

It really is a meat eaters venue, so I had no great expectations as a vegetarian. However, while there was really little choice, the starter was good, the bread delicious, but my main course - pasta - was bland, boring and every mouthful tasted exactly the same. Desert - sticky toffee pudding - was dray and tasted stale and was sent back to the kitchen. Having said that, my meat eating colleagues thought it was terrific!!!
Recommended for meat eaters, avoid if vegetarian or vegan

lovely restaurant that we frequent every time we visit. Our Sons 4th birthday as noted with the restaurant at time of booking. Food was very good except the chips were over cooked and dry. Prices were a little steep for small sides and bbq sauces.
Had to prompt our sons birthday after we saw someone else getting a gift after which the smallest off cuts of cake came out with sauce although nicely presented seemed very mean for a restaurant like this. We have had better before. Ambience was good and staff were friendly.
