    Table booked for 2045, didn’t get to sit until 2130. It was 2230 before we got food. Tbf, restaurant gave some freebies to make up which was appreciated But then when food came it was very poor - nothing like other Gaucho’s we’ve been to in other cities. The wagyu burger was a complete joke never had a worse burger in my life and they wanted £27.50. Laughable

    Amazing food and lovely service. Would definitely go back. My partner had a Sirloin steak and said it was perfect. Great choice of sides. I had mushroom tagliatelle, which was lovely. Only complaint would be the 12.5% gratuity that was added to the bill. As a table of 2, it was rather unexpected to have this added to our bill. We were intending to give a reasonable tip anyway but we didn't appreciate it not being our choice. Didn't seem right to have this as a standard addition to our bill.

    To have this much sinew through a steak is a worry,is it the quality of beef or the chef not checking,this is a treat for us to come here,our 3rd time,but will never come back.

    Asked for steaks medium rare but they were very undercooked, almost raw in places. Macaroni cheese was flavourless and side orders were messed up repeatedly; received one side dish separately before starters, then we were given the wrong sides when mains arrived. All in all, very disappointing given the high price point and way below the standards of other similarly priced steakhouses.

Felt like a personal service, our waitress was on hand to assist with anything. Food was so fresh & the taste was delicious. My Panna cotta was the best yet. Thankyou Gaucho

    Beautiful ambiance and setting. Food fantastic as were all the staff who attended our table. My wife had a 'choking incident' (nothing to do with food) and the staff were unbelievable with her. It was a scary moment, but all the staff were brilliant and the incident was dealt with quickly and effectively. We can't thank the staff enough for being so kind, courteous and approachable.

    Lovely experience for Valentine’s Day early dinner! Our waitress Monica was attentive and answered all my questions! Very friendly and recommended our dessert which was stunning! Steaks were perfect, I enjoyed my side of creamy mash…I will say I don’t think the quality of the sides matched the steaks and the restaurant it’s self, but they were still good!

    Loved our valentines dinner at Gaucho. Food tasted amazing, and service was great. Our service was really knowledgeable and gave great recommendations on food, cooking times and quality as well as the background/info of the meat. We were also pleasantly surprised we could bring our dog with us so overall a great experience.

    First time at this branch, greeted by a friendly female member of staff who escorted us downstairs and toon our bags and coats before passing us to her co worker who took us into the restaurant and seated us. The ambiance is beautiful. The waitress was knowledgable and attentive. She offered us a complimentary glass of bubbles to start, my partner accepted I declined as I dont drink, when she returned she had a glass of non alcoholic bubbles for me which was a great touch. The food was perfectly cooked to the way we had ordered and the value as always is well worth a trip to any gaucho restaurant.

    We booked in here for a roast dinner. The service was good and our food came quick. It was our first time here so we weren't sure what to expect? The food was lovely but I would say the portion wasn't enough for a normal man? Maybe would order extras next time or go for the never ending roast. We had dessert too and that was delicious.
