Really nice from start to finish.
Talked through all of the cuts of steak, wiped tables after every course and changed cutlery because of a small smudge! The little things go a long way.
Staff very knowledgeable and friendly so will definitely be back.

We visited with a Groupon voucher and thought the whole experience was very good. Only slight issue was that we ordered the 400g chateaubriand and then were a little disappointed with the amount of meat we were served.

The best steak I have ever eaten, incredible service, lovely atmosphere and exceeded expectations for our anniversary (anniversary dessert was delicious and an excellent touch). Definitely worth the price!

The start of the journey with Gaucho was not great - the customer service representative @ the central call centre who I called to make a booking was not very customer focus and not very accommodating in fact quite rude!
However, the experience of the dining was much more what you would expect, service was good and food very lovely!

Great night, we dined from the set menu which was great. The bill increases significantly with extras, however the set menu is sufficient that you wouldn’t have to indulge on extras if you chose not to. First time here, will come again.

First time at restaurant and was really pleased to see that it wasn’t fussy at all. It’s a high end restaurant as you’d expect but without the stuffy atmosphere. Attentive friendly staff without hovering over you. Will definitely be visiting again

This was our first time at the restaurant and we loved it. The food was great, the atmosphere was good and the service was excellent. We will definitely go back and the only negative would have been if we had stayed at the original seats provided as these were next to the kitchen and would have detracted from the ambience / atmosphere. When we were re-seated it was perfect.

Great food and friendly, efficient service but restaurant is more like a nightclub than a dining place with very low lighting and loud (DJ) music - and this was at lunchtime! The wine list is extensive and expensive. We had the Chandon sparkling which is £17 in the supermarket and paid £48 plus service charge at Gaucho. Would not revisit.

Booked a table weeks in advance, spoke to the restaurant the day before arrival and on the day was told there wasn’t a booking under my name. We took a seat and had a drink while the problem was ‘sorted’ out. 50 minutes later nobody had even spoke to us let alone tried to seat us. There were empty tables, tables waiting to be cleared and reset and we just sat with our drinks waiting. Nice way to spend my 50 birthday present, in the end I walked out. Should have gone back to Del Asado on the Harley road where they know how to treat customers and serve excellent food.

The steak was asked to be medium rare but was more medium, as my partner was hungry he just ate it. I ordered the aubergine as i don't eat meat, for £14.50 it was tiny. The flesh was unflavoured mush and the skin was really tough. It really wasn't enjoyable. The service was good and atmosphere was nice
Overall i wouldn't personally return.

I live in london and I usually go the Gaucho located in London Bridge, where I usually receive exceptional service. I planned a surprise birthday meal in Birmingham for my sister. Unfortunately I was very embarrassed and appalled by the service that we received. We waited over an hour for a waiter to finally take our orders. When we asked for the bill our waiter was no longer aware of what we had ordered. We paid our meals separately however the waiter came back to tell us there was still a remaining amount to pay, when we asked what it was for, he was unable to explain. He’s attitude and behaviour towards us from the beginning was absolutely revolting. I can put everything in to words but I am honestly shocked. Thankfully the manager came and calmed the situation down. However it was all very uncalled for. Im very traumatised and there’s a low probability that I’ll ever be returning back.

Beautiful decor and fantastic food!!! The speed of service could have been better but they were very busy after 8.00pm and the waitress was very apologetic and gave us a free drink by means of apology. All in all a lovely meal and evening. Highly recommended

We had a lovely meal to celebrate my husbands birthday at Gaucho. The service was excellent, friendly but professional. The ambience was good, live music early in the evening and quieter background music later. Overall the food was very good, scallops and empanadas for starters were both good. My husband had the sirloin which was beautiful, however my only issue was with the rump I had which was a little tough and chewy. I have had much better rump, even from supermarkets so I would not expect this from a restaurant like Gaucho. That excepted, we had a very pleasant evening and would certainly visit again. The espresso martini was especially good!

Really enjoyed my evening out, brilliant service and quality of food. Only two things that let it down were the cocktail menu and the dessert menu. As both didn't appeal to me, however thats personal preference so nothing significant.

Birthday with friends, we have been here a few times eating off the set lunch menu. Very disappointed to find the fillet limo no longer included on the set menu! Whilst we understand that this is still on the al carte it seems a high Percentage price increase has been levied. We will give it a miss in the future.
