Booked a table for 20;15, arrived at 20.10 had to wait 25 minutes for a table. Whilst waiting at the bar, the drinks were served in warm glasses. (Freshly out of dishwasher)

Shown to our seat, meats explained.

Placed an order, starter turned up, they were ok. Main arrived, lamb cutlets were fatty, Broccoli was HARD, had just been dunked in hot water. Beans were also hard

I had steak, steak was nice, fat chips had black bruise marks on them, and the mushrooms were just button, not the variance as stated on the menu.

All in all, not a very nice evening. £100.00 wasted.

This is a lovely riverside restaurant and if they close I will be sad to see it go , however , we have dined in this restaurant on several occasions as we are local but this time was the worst in terms of the food quality . The fat chips are usually amazing , these were undercooked / raw in the middle and had to be sent back , the steak (rump) was quite chewy and pretty tasteless - mushroom sauce had no depth of flavour and the blue cheese was not a sauce just a thick congealed mess. It was my partners Birthday , so it was a pretty disappointing experience all round this time .

Great steak as always, change to starters menu means portions smaller than previous - miss the old chicken livers and salt beef options. But overall great

We received great service, my friend got the chicken and thoroughly enjoyed the taste and portion size. There were a few dogs in the restaurant walking around tables, I didn’t mind but my dining companion did not appreciate the 4- legged diners! Overall great experience and I would recommend.

Overall the experience was poor. I have eaten many times Gaucho Restaurants across London this was the poorest experience I’ve had.

The stakes were tough and not the standard I have come to expect.

This is the third time I have eaten at the Richmond Gaucho and every time it has been poor.

I certainly will not be back

I visited Gaucho in Richmond with 2 friends and had a really lovely evening although the restaurant was a bit hot inside - but it was our choice to sit inside. The steaks are always a treat and cooked to perfection - so a real pleasure for a meat lover like me. The service was excellent and when it turned out that our waiter gave us a more expensive wine than we ordered - he was kind enough to reduce the extra money from the bill. Cannot really beat the setting of the restaurant just next to the river either - so can only highly recommend this place and will definitely be back.

As usual, the steaks were superb but we were pretty disappointed that our favourite dish (trio of steak medallions) has been removed from the menu. Excellent wine list.

Not the first time we have visited Gaucho Richmond & will not be the last. The staff are very professional, friendly and incredibly attentive. Other than the good quality food it is the little details that sets this restaurant apart from others in the same price bracket.

Sitting out by the riverside on a hot summer day with a bit of breeze to take the edge of the heat, our lunch at Gaucho was delightful. We ordered from the lunch menu. Gazpacho soup to start was just the ticket, followed by excellent steaks. Attentive service.

Unparalleled traffic free riverside location makes Gaucho Richmond an idyllic spot for eating al fresco in summer with some tables shaded by the largest plane tree in London (but if you stay a couple of hours the sun moves round and there are no umbrellas, so you'll either start or finish without shade). Be sure to apply sunscreen before arriving and take a hat!
Service is always tip-top and the food is as good as it gets in London.

My old favourite is Hawksmoor Seven Dials London and until I visited Gaucho at Richmond on the river front I would not have thought anywhere could come close, but WOW! The ambience, the staff, the choice and of course the chateaubriand were all outstanding. I wholly recommend this place. Great people watching (the odd one or two famous bods thrown in for nothing), never felt hurried and food, oh my the food was truly outstanding.
It was my birthday treat and what a treat it was. Free chocolate truffles on a happy birthday plate too!

Go on, treat the people you care about. It really is worth it!
Thank you all for such a great evening.

The presentation, the recommendation of choice of meats/ cuts and wine was spot on. The server knew what was good and the steak was phenomenal. Service is on point during off-peak hours but can get rather slow and difficult to catch the waiter's attention during peak.
Location was perfect. Outdoor seating watching the sunset and activity on the river was relaxing and romantic. Quiet and classy.
The quality of the steak and price point is on par with Pasture in Bristol. Ambience and wine choices were in a league of its own.

Amazing view, great place to seat in and enjoy a sunny day, awesome and very polite waiters. But... we have been waiting 45 min between two courses.
The portions were microscopic.
The kitchen forgot my side dish with my sirloin.
When we left the restaurant no one said good buy (a part from our waiter) . Apparently the reception staff was too busy.
