Gaucho Brunch - Piccadilly
Service was very bad, food portions are very small, bread is not fresh and the selection of soft drinks is so limited. We asked for hot beverages instead of alcohol and they didn’t accommodate for it. The venue is on the second floor and there are no lifts.
Group of 8 guys, excellent idea this and great value. No hidden catches. Service was quick and generous. 90 minutes of fun!!!
We was late due to a tree fallen on the train tracks, the staff was so accommodating and delivered quick service to ensure we got all the food choices and drinks flowing, the morning was a complete disaster but all was forgotten about within 5 mins of arriving! Had THE best time x
Very good. Good food and drinks and definitely money’s worth.
Food and drinks choices were amazing, staff very attentive!
We received quite bad service from the offset, staff were rude and very slow at bringing over our drinks/taking orders and serving our food. We also didn't receive all of the dishes we requested and we actually came away a bit hungry. The menu has changed since I last had electro brunch and I would say the previous menu was a lot better with more options. This menu was mainly all bread based and no sweet options either.Drinks were really nice and we did manage to have quite a few within the time frame.
Two birthdays. Food was excellent. Drinks excellent. Service was really good. Would go again.
Took my son, 10 other young lads and my wife for his 21st birthday. I wish I could remember our waitresses name, but she coped incredibly well with a bunch of 21 year olds! Her service, attention and ensuring they were fed and watered was first class. The food was excellent and flowing, as too the fabulous cocktails. Whether a group, with your partner and a small group, you'll love it. Bit pricey at first glance, but when you factor the amount of cocktails, done be put off.
It was nice. The servers were a little slow and unattentive
I had a great time at Gaucho, love the aperol spritz on tap. However, the service was quite slow considering you are on a time limit and the food took ages to come back which was disappointing. I would say that if turnaround time isn’t going to be up to scratch you should allow people to order more than one drink/plate at a time.
Food was amazing steak egg and pornstar martinis 😍
We were very disappointed with this brunch. The service was slow, the food had very little variety. We felt it was all egg, avocado and copious amounts of bread. We had a vegetarian with us and every meal served to her was egg and avocado, no other option!! One of our dishes, eggs benedict, was never served at all. They offer Bloody Mary cocktails but had no Tabasco or Worcestershire sauce so basically vodka and tomato juice! We spent £600 and then were not allowed to sit on the terrace afterwards with another drink and the manager was unnecessarily brusque and rude. We were not the only ones treated like this. Will not be returning for brunch at Gaucho. Need to step up your game as so many other restaurants doing this better.
I have previously booked a Gaucho electric brunch with friends where we sat on the 1st floor and had a lovely civilised brunch with great food and service.
After such a great experience I booked this for my mother in laws birthday, however this was a very different experience and was very disappointing. I had booked exactly the same day and time as my previous reservation however this time we were sat on the 2nd floor with blaring music from a DJ to the point we couldn't even hear each other speak. It was like eating at a club with people screaming and shouting across tables.
It was an awful experience and completely ruined the day. You expect the same dining experience each time and this should have be specified upon booking.
It was fine and adequate. Very loud, staff were plentiful and great.
This is my third time now at Gaucho as I have been very pleased with it previously. However this time a few things had changed and they had not made the adjustments apparent. Firstly the time is now only an hour and a half, in comparison to the two hours I had before. I think it is quite pricey for the time allocation given. I feel they should have made this more obvious during booking. Aswell as this they always put on a service charge which is quite a hefty figure. For the three of use we paid £180 however they still wanted to add another £25 additional charges. When we asked for this to be removed, it wasn't the easiest of experiences, as the manager had to come down etc.
Apart from the above the food was delicious and as a whole the atmosphere was reasonably friendly. Would think about returning.
A good, lively atmosphere in a sophisticated setting. The brunch provided an excellent range of drinks and the service of these was good. Food was flavoursome but very small portions and slow to come out. Menu and duration of brunch have recently changed, not necessarily for the better.
Fantastic food and drink. Great atmosphere.
Service was slow, however, waiters were great and friendly and allowed us extra time due to this.
I guess the kitchen was understaffed this particular day? I could not fault anything else however.
Fantastic day for the Mrs birthday. Thank you Gaucho’s
A poor brunch compared to other gauchos staff overwhelmed with customers and food from a menu that has changed and not for the better would appear cost cutting is in place big time other Gauchos do much better then this for food and service for sure.
Lovely day really friendly staff that always there if you want a another drink and the food is real value for money.
Our brunch experience got off to a rough start due to an unwelcoming staff member, I believe he was the manager. He approached my husband and his friend as if he thought they were not supposed to be there. After that out server was amazing and we had a fabulous time.
Excellent service, did not feel rushed.
Staff super attentive, couldn’t have eaten or drank anymore if we tried.
Overall, it served a purpose for a bottomless brunch but I didn’t rate the food. The menu was fairly limited and everything seemed to be overcooked - especially the eggs. Cocktails were OK but I found them way too syrupy.
Gaucho is normally one of my fave places to eat and having experienced electro brunch at the Sloan location only and many dinners at Richmond and piccadilly I thought i would try brunch at piccadilly. All the reviews said it was loud but to be honest we enjoy the music side so were looking forward to a good vibe.... what we got was very different to what we expected the music is so low you can hardly hear it, the noise is just loud conversation from other customers. I didn't see a DJ in sight so not sure what the music was that was being played. The food was terrible, some plates came out cold, eggs that were overcooked rubbery or rock hard. The steak was so chewy it hurt my teeth. We didnt enjoy any of it .....Thank god for the drinks we thought... the cocktails were horrid pre-mixed probably sat waiting behind the bar all morning so we stuck to the chandon which was ok. To top it all off the service was so poor the worst I have experienced in a while they were all unattentive, moody and slow. I had booked to bring 7 people here for my birthday in 2 weeks time but its safe to say that i will be cancelling that booking and going somewhere else
Really great couple of hours. Ate so much I could hardly move afterwards. The waiters kept the drinks coming at a rapid rate - the atmosphere was great too - overall and excellent dining experience.
