Our experience was an excellent one overall. Super food and table service matched by an amazing layout, style and decor. Slightly spoiled by a drunken couple next to us and a rather crowded reception area upon arrival.

Our steaks were lovely and cooked perfect. My dessert of chocolate fondant was worth waiting for. We had cocktails instead of wine, our drinks tasted fab and due to large selection had a hard time choosing. Staff were amazing and even offered to get us a taxi sorted if we needed one.

I love this place, but this time it was a shame that we didn’t get taken to our table for 30mins after our booking. Once we got down it didn’t even seem that busy. No one offered to take our coats until we asked etc. Don’t set a high expectation if you don’t intend to continue to live up to it

This restaurant is really exceptional. The beef was really a notch above the typical high end steakhouse. Sides were really good- service was attentive but not intrusive. I’d highly recommend for a special date night or business meal.

Visited on New Years Day - we had a reservation. From the moment we walked in staff were professional attentive and friendly. Had cocktail at the bar before being seated - barman was epic! Once seated we were looked after by Domanica who was easily the best serving person I have ever met - knowledgeable about the menu and very attentive- she made our visit exceptional. The beef - black Angus- was the best thing I have ever tasted. Decor fabulous and atmospheric - felt very posh altogether. Bit pricey but so worth it. Will definitely go again.

Our reservation was for NYE. Unfortunately we were made to wait 50 minutes for a reservation by a rude hostess. The 4 steaks were ordered medium rare and 3 arrived blue. We complained at that point and instead of fresh steaks, they cooked the same ones. Brought us dry, well done steaks. Really poor for a restaurant that’s meant to be of a high calibre.

We asked to speak to the manager who was very understanding and compassionate to our situation and comped the food. If it wasn’t for that it would be 1 star all the way.

We had a wonderful New Years Eve Dining experience, food was outstanding along with the service, although we booked in advance the restaurant were more than accommodating when we enquired last minute to increase our numbers for dinner.
All the staff were friendly and welcoming and despite how exceptionally busy they were we were shown to our table at the exact time of our reservation.

France the restaurant manager came over and introduced himself and wished us a pleasant evening

Very nicely presented with excellent steaks.
Would have given it top rank except there was a communication problem re ordering wine and cost.
While that was addressed graciously in our favour it is a bit embarrassing to have to deal with it. Also we had to pay for our predinner drinks in the bar before we went downstairs to eat. That should be addressed.

Had to wait about 5 minutes for someone to take us to a table even though there was two people at the reception stand. Chips looked like the ends of a batch as people next to us had nice fresh chips. Service was a bit slow but the waiter was lovely.

We booked a table for 7 on NYE, they were going to seat us in a booth until we arrived and requested 2 more be added to the party. Due to the table of 9 they could seat us in their private dining room which was an excellent experience.
The service, food and value was excellent. Charlie our personal waiter tended to all our needs and certainly enhanced the evening.

Decor was lovely and the staff were exceptional. Unfortunately one of our steaks was very grisly and had to be returned, I was told it had be cut into 'butterfly' so that it would cook quickly??????
BUT regardless of this the replacement steak was beautiful and my partner had not had a problem anyway with his. The bill was adjusted and I did not have to pay for my meal. I had opted for the 3 course set menu but as my partner had finished his main course before I got my replacement, we decided to just have the two because we were short on time.
Overall would go there again and would recommend because the staff were so good and it was a pleasant atmosphere and the problem was sorted without any fuss.

We ordered our steaks in a certain way as normal.
Rare was presented as medium rare
Medium rare was almost well done
After a friendly discussion with a very nice manager we were only charged for our drinks.
I would still try them again when next in Edinburgh as I have never been disappointed with the branch in Sloane Avenue London

Amazing steak ! Fantastic staff! They went above and beyond. Truely outstanding customer service and would cater to your every need. Booked a table here after CAU had closed down which my family used to go to alot so was over the moon coming to Gaucho although so far away! Travelled from Durham just to come here! And we were not dissapointed. Steak cooked to perfection. The chips were awful but it is not what you come here for. Will be back for my birthday.

Awesome food and great service. Busy so make sure you book in advance.

Slab of beef was as expected, delicious. The mushrooms were also amazing.

Good Argentinian beer on draft, and great selection of wine.

Highly recommend it, and it's worth a drive if you want top notch steak.
