The quality of the steak was excellent, cooked as requested. Very disappointed with the quality and choice of sides! The chips served were stale and dry; the portion of mushrooms was too salty.....hence spoiled the meal..

Three friends and I went for my 65th birthday celebrations. We had a little difficulty talking over the background music which was just a little too loud; and it was, for some of us very expensive. However, that aside, it was excellent. The food, the waiting staff (who were very knowledgable, and helpful) about the various items on the menu, and were able to answer all our many questions) - indeed all the staff I encountered - were prefect. (The toilets were were also good: very nicely decorated, and seemed very clean.) Although it was a Sunday, the restaurant was full, yet it was very pleasant not to feel crowded as the tables had a good amount of space between them. Half my party are vegetarian and they managed to find appropriate food they enjoyed, the other half of us had wonderful steaks. (The vegetarians did mention that their choice was somewhat limited, however.) Having recent been diagnosed as diabetic I very wary, and I did indeed get slightly carried away by the last course, but it was amazing food, and the best meal I have had in a long time. (A version with sugar substitutes would be wonderful, but I doubt that any restaurant will ever do that!) Thank you Goucho, it was great.

Fairly average for an expensive price. Music was too loud, service wasn't exactly what you wanted for the price you pay. Steak wasn't cooked to what I wanted, greasy, sides came out cold or undercooked.

Style over substance. We went out for a family lunch one of the roasts were sent back as the meat was requested to be cooked more well done, 3 times it was brought back because it was literally flashed under the grill. We had to wait a very long time between starters and mains and the drinks were very over priced. We like to have a big family meal out and normally prices are not a consideration so long as we've all had a good time. We were told by the manager we would receive an email on later then Thursday to follow up and this has yet to have been received.
We won't be returning.

This was my first visit to Gaucho-Birmingham and my first impression was very good. My table was ready when we arrived early, and we were seated straight away. Water & drinks were offered within minutes of seating and our waiter (Alex) introduced himself. I suggested to Alex that we would like steak for our main course and he presented a steak board displaying all the different cuts of fresh meat and cooking suggestions. We shared the sausage board starter of chorizo, which was delicious with fresh bread. I went against the chefs suggestion of cooking my 400g rib-eye steak med/rare, and went for med/well. This was cooked to perfection. The same can be said for my daughters rump steaks (400 & 300g) both were ordered med/well and arrived looking delicious & succulent. All three steaks were cooked and presented perfectly. When we had finished eating Alex arranged for our drinks to be taken to the bar so the table could be cleaned for the next diners. This is a high quality restaurant, serving high quality food with very good service. Prices are premium, but with service & decor & ambience to match. I will definitely return for a special occasion again.

Arrived 25mins late (though did call to let them know) and first thing they said was they needed table back in 1:5 hrs. Given I had clearly advised we were pre theatre, they could have worked it out that we would be gone before then.
Service good though we clearly asked for tap water and they bought us bottled. We immediately pointed that out but they left bottle with us (correct decision). They also added to the bill. Yes, it’s a tiny amount (£4) but come on.... basic stuff
Food choice imho quite limited but tasted good in the main. The little hot cheesy rolls they bring out are scrummy.
Good attention for drinks - and clearly this is where they can make a margin. House champagne very good value for money.
Restaurant is very well presented so I would definitely go back for that as food good too.

This was our first visit to Gaucho, not too far from the station Grand Central, nice friendly greeting and shown straight to our table although we were early. Quite noisy a couple of large parties in, very attentive staff and efficient, our food was really good even though we were choosing from the offer menu. Good wine also, delicious steak and even though I have mine 'well done' it was really tasty and cooked just right. So ticks all round and we will visit again.

Cocktails excellent, food excellent, service good but waited way too long between mains and desserts. Wasn't really impressed with being told I'd ordered too many sides when I'm quite capable of deciding that for myself and asking if I'd like to try the wine before pouring then when I say "no its fine just pour" and they insist I taste it in case its corked. Well I can tell that with a full glass of wine rather than sit there having you watch me taste wine when I'm not actually ready because I'm still drinking a cocktail because you brought the wine too early. A little bit unprofessional I thought. I didn't particularly like the way the waiter argued when I asked for the service charge to be removed when I said I'd rather pay the tip in cash. At £250 for two I think I'll decide what tip I leave.
