Excellent food (steak was cooked perfectly) and service, we had the 3 course menu which was excellent value for money, although the side dishes were a little expensive, as was the wine list, very attentive service
Lovely decor and ambience. Will definitely be paying a return visit

Booked a table for my boyfriends birthday.
He had the rib eye steak and said it was the best steak he's had. I had the sea bass, which was also satisfying!
Overall the food was amazing and Mari, our waitress was very nice and helpful. They also gave my boyfriend a dessert on the house for his birthday which was a nice gesture. This was our first time coming here and we've already booked a table for next month! Definitely recommend.

First time visit. All staff from reception to table were very attentive. Ambience was fun with the live DJ. The starters in my opinion were a little overpriced, with the empanada being a prime example. The rump i ordered rare and was perfectly cooked. The wines were a great pairing and we enjoyed the option of coravan.

We will for sure be visiting again soon.

Disappointing. The photos of the place are very exaggerated. It’s quite a small place. It’s also extremely noisy. We were sat right near the till area so it was busy with a group of staff next to us all the time. Whilst the steak was very good, it was served on its own. No garnish at all on the plate. Average chips and pay extra for a very small portion of sauce. We were not asked how our food was at all. For just a group of 4 service charge was automatically added to our bill.

The restaurant itself was very nice and well decorated etc.. The waiting staff were very good but, unfortunately, we had to wait over an hour to be seated at our table, even though we had booked. The manager did apologise a lot and gave us free drinks while we waited for the table, which was good. Because it was so busy, the food took a long time to come, by which time we were very hungry (our table was booked for 9.15pm, we were seated at 10.20pm and finally left at 12.40am). Unfortunately, the table next to us was being used by lots of drunken idiots, which spoilt the evening too. Again, the manager tried to keep them quiet, apologised to us and gave us more free drinks. He did his best in the circumstances! I'm sure it would be very nice there at a quieter time but don't go near Christmas!

The sausage platter was amazing and the bramble gin drink, gutted they couldn't make staple drinks that weren't on the menu as the bar/restaurant we were at previous were more catering. We didn't pay the service charge because our tap water didn't come till towards the end and they got my steak sauce wrong. It's discretionary so we don't have to pay it and the waiters then made us feel like it was expected. At the end of the day they get paid to do there job they shouldn't expect us to pay the service charge if we don't want too. The waiter then spoke about it to another waiter who then phoned the cloakroom because when we collected our coats, straight away after getting of the phone the lady asked us if everything was alright. If people expect tips or service charge it makes me not want to pay for it even more. My friend asked for her steak blue and it was over cooked it was the same as my rare.

1st visit to Birmingham Gaucho, but been to a number of the London based restaurants previously.
Chose the special set priced 'OpenTable' menu. Great food and service.

Disappointed that we were charged extra for the desserts (which should have been included on the set price menu). Didn't spot it when paying. Probably just a mistake, but more frustrated with myself for not spotting.

What a lovely experience this was! A meal for two to celebrate my wife’s birthday, we arrived an hour early as other bars nearby were rammed. We settled in the Gaucho bar and got a real warm welcome by Patrick who looks after the bar. He took us through the bar menu to help us find a nice cocktail but he eventually made something up for us which was great.
The food was great although weren’t so struck on the espanda starter. We enjoyed the Mini Choripan at the bar earlier much more. The main courses, 300g Sirloin & 300 fillet steaks were cooked beautifully. Probably one of the best steaks I’ve ever had. Lovely that although we insisted we were too full for dessert they bright through a beautiful Happy Birthday ice-cream platter for my wife.
The couple of groans : lighting over our made reading the means a challenge. Perhaps the menu could have also been a little bolder font wise. And the ambience was really loud. To be fair it was very busy. Not much you can do about that. Better loud than quiet and stuffy. Overall a great night. The food was great but the personal attention was on another level. Well done Gaucho, we’ll be back!

The food was incredible and the waitress we had couldn’t do enough for us. The restaurant also bought out my husband a happy birthday desert and myself a congratulations one after we announced that I was expecting.

It was an absolutely incredible experience, the only thing was it felt a little rushed. Our starters came out during our bread and olives and then the mains arrived really quick afterwards. So it didn’t give us too much time to chill out.

Fantastic food, 10/10 service. We had Mary look after us, she is a credit to hospitality, nothing was too much trouble. Extremely knowledgeable and had the right balance between friendly and professional.

After changes in plans and being delayed by half an hour, I can only say that the staff and service here were nothing short of outstanding. Our server was even able to recommend steaks according to how we preferred to have them cooked. When we did get to have our steaks they were simply divine. Perfectly cooked, and simply delicious. I can't wait to have an opportunity to come back here again

We booked for lunch on a Saturday as we were intrigues by the lunch deal. We all had a starter and a steak from the lunch deal, as well as shared a 0.5-L caraffe of red wine. We spent £40 each, which all considering seemed a bit pricey. The steaks were good but the starters weren't. Having a DJ playing loud music over lunch seems like a debatable choice, I would have preferred a quieter background music. The room was a bit too dark.

The quality of the steaks is unsurpassed - absolutely outstanding. Service is attentive without being obtrusive and the wine menu caters more than adequately for all tastes. Gaucho’s is, however, quite expensive especially when the meal is accompanied by fine wine.

Best steak I have ever tasted! Will definitely be returning for the steak alone! Service was good but a tad slow on the drinks but servers very polite and happy to stop and help whenever required.
The only 2 negatives I have is that it was rather loud inside, not music, but from the other diners but I suppose it was a Saturday night. Also, perhaps mentioning that water for the table and olives from the bar are chargeable. We were offered the water for our table whilst we waited on our cocktails and then olives with our breads but we were never told that these items were an additional charge, it was kind of made out to be complimentary.
Cheesecake is phenomenal and the Aperol Spritz' were made perfectly :)
