Food was outstanding, service of food was outstanding, drink were great. The only let down was waiting time on table, Table was booked for 5:15pm and did not get seated until 5:35pm this was on top of being 5mins early.

The beer selection was pretty poor and cocktails were of a very small proportion for the price. Our steak was the chateaubriand and tasted more burnt that anything. We did mention but nothing was done about it and we were getting hungry. We had a good half hour wait before we go into restaurant. The staff were very nice and that was the saving grace really.

Lovely setting, attentive staff and the food was delicious. We both had different starters and mains, but all were top quality. We were told we only had the table for two hours, however this was an unrushed, relaxed experience. I would definitely recommend a visit!

Lovely meal for my husband's birthday. We shared the Chateauxbriand and it was cooked perfectly melted in your mouth. Nice touch of happy birthday plate with chocolates. The restaurant is very chic with a lovely ambiance well worth a visit!! Very friendly staff who provided a first class service.

We went for the fixed price menu and my steak was pretty disappointing-small, fatty and served on an empty plate looking sad. The chips were slightly soggy. Not good.

Food was absolutely amazing my only gripes are how dark certain areas are. This was my 2nd visit and I was seated away from lighting and I ended up having to use the light on my mobile to read the menu. Also staff weren't as on the ball this time, we orderd the steak sampler and had to ask the waitress to come back to tell us which steak was which, gripes aside I would definitely go back as the food is sooooo good.

The food was fine but the service was a strange combination between offhand and pretentious. We were asked to wait over five minutes on arrival while reception served drinks behind the bar. Then we had to sit through this presentation on their different steak cuts even though we had said we wanted filet. There were only 3 tables occupied and yet waiters managed to walk past all of them without glancing at the occupants. On reflection 3 stars for service was generous.

We had added that it was for our anniversary 35 years. When they called to confirm they again asked if it was for our anniversary which I confirmed. Nothing was recognised on the evening. The meal however together with the wine and ambiance was wonderful despite that.

Very nice place to have my fairwell dinner. Staff were friendly and courteous, food was very good (had sharing platter between 5), atmosphere was nice with the exception of one other loud customer. Had to wait around 10 minutes after my reservation time to be seated. Drinks menu had a large variety and had all the standard drinks.

Great location in central Edinburgh. The venue has a nice bar upstairs which is well stocked for a drink but for meals the restaurant is located downstairs. You’re met by a host and shown to your table. The large room is well decorated with an amazing tree in the centre and a nice atmosphere throughout.

My wife and I dined on Sunday night at Gaucho. We weren’t sure what to expect but certainly were not disappointed.
The restaurant is modern, fresh and glitzy. The dining tables are a good size and well spaced. The staff are attentive and knowledgeable on steak cuts and the other various food types on offer. The staff are friendly without being overbearing - well done Craig our server.
The steaks we had were excellent and the service was paced without being rushed. We enjoyed our meal courses over a relaxed two hour period - there’s nothing worse than being force fed to free up a table - there’s none of that at Gaucho.
Looking forward to our next visit.
