Had a great dinner at Gaucho, as always. The steaks are delicious and cooked to perfection, the sides are creative and lovely (mushrooms, fries, mac’n’cheese to mention a few). Would also recommend empanadas to start or a garlic bread as a bite. Cocktails are lovely.
The vibe is cool of a trendy busy central London place.
Would definitely recommend for a chilled out romantic evening.

A Couple of points here
1. Limited number of wines and most were not available
2. Steaks were served almost cold which was not enjoyable.

Disappointed that I made a note on the booking that we was there for two birthdays father & daughter and nothing was done for them. One of the steaks was full of fat too so wasn’t enjoyable to eat.

Prior to this experience I have always found Goucho a first class dining establishment but unfortunately my experience last night was quite the opposite.
Decided to come to the flagship restaurant to celebrate a birthday and wish I had gone elsewhere.
There was no ambiance, the lighting was bright, seating was like an office desk chair. Quality of service was vary poor - and they still added service charge.
Steak was incredible however everything else was such a let down to previous experience. The chips were over cooked and crunchy, oyster mushroom was simply 2 slices of cold mushroom with diced onions. The 'mash' wasn't even potato!
I felt severely let down for the experience. To be honest I feel that even if I was to make a complaint it would not have been listened too. Staff avoided eye contact and was rude on arrival. The quality and intimacy of pervious experiences was not there at all

Absolute last time we ever waste our time or money in Gauchp. 8 years ago it really was a great steak restaurant with friendly staff and great food. Sadly now it’s understaffed, you wait 30 minutes for your first drink, get given your vegetables once you’ve eaten your main course and are served warm fizz. I understand there’s a shortage in employees in this industry but Gaucho should manage how many bookings they accept instead of squashing them in like sardines. We had a table barely big enough for 2 with 4 of us squashed around it and other guests practically sat back to back. It’s all about the money here sadly.
Never again!!!

Lovely restaurant however forgot items on order and then presented cold chips
Chips were replaced but had eaten burger by then
Steak salad was ok steak was lovely well cooked salad was a bit poor in quantity and variety it was more just a few bits thrown on a plate as a starter it would have been exceptional as a main and quite costly it was poor

Ordered the set menu for London Restaurant Festival and was disappointed with the choices. For some reason you couldn't see the menu in advance on Gauchos or OpenTable website so we took a gamble and unfortunately it didn't pay off!

One of our group is gluten free and this really limited their options. Only one starter was GF (raw seabass) which isn't to everyone's taste and none of the desserts were GF which is just odd. (We got offered some lemon sorbet instead). The main course steaks were good (as you'd expect/hope) but that's not enough to make up for everything else.

Given how many staff seem to be walking around the restaurant it did seem quite slow - took nearly 2 hours for a 3 course set menu. It came across that because we were on the 'cheap' menu that staff didn't seem to care much!

Only one toilet cubicle open in the women's toilet for a restaurant of that size too meant a considerable queue all night.

Don't think I'll be rushing back!

Good food and service. Steaks are large go for the smallest size. There was a crack on a plate and a delay on food, complimentary drinks were given without even asking. Birthday drinks and plate brought out for my partners birthday on request.
Toilets need improvement, but otherwise lovely ambience and venue.

Lovely varied FT Lunch offer four course special menu (available to end October) and great service by our waiter. We even persuaded some people who arrived at the next table just before we left to enjoy the menu too.

Our welcome was spoilt by the receptionist continually coughing and when we came to have to leave it took a little too long for the card machine to be brought to us.

Unfortunately - a disappointing visit. Booked a table for 845pm and didn't get seated until 915 or fed until 1015pm.

The actual waiter service was great! Food was average - no steak knives which meant the evening was spent carving at a steak with a butter knife - peppercorn sauce was like gravy with peppercorns in it.

With the price of the meal - I'd expect a lot more.
