Excellent food, Gaucho always deliver on the quality of their steaks. It is a little expensive but you get what you pay for. Lovely birthday or anniversary treat.

Lovely ambience, attentive staff, opulent dining room. Sunday lunch was fair, beef was good but veg were uninspiring for the price which was fairly expensive for 3 people ( 1 person had main course only, two of us starter and main) £100

First time visiting here but won't be our last. We were made to feel very special on arrival & you get a personal service. The decor of the place is very stylish & sophisticated. All the staff were very friendly & everything had their roles. Great for special occasions as we visited for our anniversary.

We where given the wine list daunting if you don’t know argentine wines, asked for a recommendation given choices full bodied etc we where given two bottles to try we opted for the second. The wine superb enough said.
The food we had tuna and scallops for starters , the bread given to us was to die for. We order the smaller fillets as we ordered starters again outstanding. The staff where faultless.
It was our wedding anniversary the overall experience was fantastic would visit again no question. Unfortunately we live 2 hours away.

Went for partners birthday. Food was amazing can’t rate the steak highly enough. Expensive but that’s to be expected. Only thing that let it down was I requested something special for my partner for his birthday (even just writing happy birthday on his plate) confirmed this on arrival and it was forgotten about.

Food was fantastic but the service almost made me walk out.

We had reserved a table and was shown to our table promptly with no issue.
We were asked if we’d like bottled water which I kindly agreed to “£4.95 expensive but this has become the norm for the so called fancy restaurants”.
Waited around 20 minutes for a waitress to take our drinks order after that which I thought was very slow as staff members walked past us numerous times without wondering why we only had glasses of water in front of us.

The food however was amazing and probably the best steak I’ve ever had. Clearing the table after we’d finished was also very slow and I understand being cautious in case we hadn’t finished our meals but for our food not to be collected until 15 minutes after we had finished was a bit slow in my opinion.

I would go back and I would recommend this place to friends but I do expect the service to be much better when I’m paying over £150 for 2 people to dine.

We visited the restaurant early on Saturday evening and we were very impressed with the experience.
The waiter to our table was excellent... all the staff looked like they were working very hard and excellent attention to detail, the management should be very proud of the team at this restaurant.

The only little niggle I had was the seafood sharing platter for our starter felt a little on the small side and could of needed an extra portion of something else to complete the £25 dish, the flavors were top notch so no issues with the quality.

We had a chateaubriand for our main which was faultless......

Sadly disappointed, having had a great experience at another Gaucho restaurant.

Starting on a positive, the food was great and certainly the best element of my experience. Steak and burger main dishes cooked perfectly and complimented by well presented, very tasty accompanying dishes. Unfortunately, this was severely let down by very poor service, which cannot be excused by it being busy : this was a Sunday evening and there appeared to be ample staff for the few diners in the restaurant. Literally everything we wanted after the initial presentation of the menus required us to catch the eye of, or beckon, staff to our table and we were left without drinks for significant periods. Our main server (we 'claimed' number of them during our time there) seemed disinterested and talking as though from a script. I don't find this acceptable at the price point this restaurant is operating at. I get better than treatment than this at our local pub.

The other outstanding experience of the evening was the dire music selection : it seemed to be a mix of jazz and obscure 70's disco, with hystrionic vocals, which soon jarred the nerves in the otherwise quiet and sophisticated ambience of the venue. I was glad to escape by the end ... after having hunted down someone to prepare our bill and take payment !!

Needless to say, I won't be returning to this particular venue any time soon.

First time dining at Gaucho's for my Husband's Birthday, the food was amazing, by far the best steak we have eaten and we have eaten a lot of steak. You get what you pay for.

The service was equally as good which made the whole experience really enjoyable. Our Server was Borja who was knowledgeable with his recommendation for both the wine and the cut of steak that we had.
The ambience was pleasurable it was nice that the seating was well laid out and interior décor was amazing. It all met our expectations and more and we will definitely go back.

Huge thank you to the Sunday evening team! We were greeted and seated with warmth and attentiveness. We were promdominately looked after by Susie, she not only had thorough knowledge of the wine list, she had both my boyfriend and I laughing throughout the whole experience. Though the menu had one Vegan option, it was truly delicious. Atmosphere was just perfect for a Sunday evening, laughter, chat, and glass clinking! We were treated to a espresso martini by whom we can only assume was the manager (lovely gentleman) a gesture that was a cherry on the top of a wonderful birthday!

First impressions and the restaurant look great! However it took a while for the service to get to us and we then had to ask them to take our drinks order to be told they no longer have the beers that are on the menu and only have bottle or draft pilsner but a wide variety of cocktails.
The starters were very nice, but again a number of the main courses and sides were not available which was dissapointing.
