    Really good service- I didn't catch the name or our waiters but both were really friendly and attentive and ensured we got the best value for money out of our brunch sitting. Drinks selection is great, food is good (I do wish they would either expand or switch up their menu every so often though and have more dairy-free options). Overall, a good afternoon and would go back!

    Staff were not that attentive. They were too busy chatting (the man at the door was wonderful however!). There was one staff member slouched over the bar - and i'm not sure if it was the same one, but another looking really moody and staring at us with her arms crossed - made us feel really unwelcome unfortunately. We also said that it was our anniversary, and nothing extra was added, we also made the occasion aware to other bars we were planning on going to and all of them had us a glass of bubbly waiting which was lovely. I'm really upset with this experience as we were really looking forward to it. The food however was amazing!! It's not what you expect when you are paying nearly £150. I would also like to add that the female toilets were disgusting. There were foundation stains all over the doors and walls of the bathroom and the toilet roll holder was hanging off the wall even though there was a (bad) attempt to stick it back together with black tape - paint was also coming off the wall - was absolutely not what you would expect in a 'fine dining' place - i would not recommend to any one.

    Not the usual Gaucho experience. We were expecting the regular food quality but instead we received very simple tapas food. Some kind of cheap all inclusive hotel food and drinks quality. Not value for money.

    There were 4 people working in service but only 1 seemed to be working. The others were standing on their phones chatting and would refuse to assist. We were the last ones there, but they allowed all of the other tables to stay later than their allotted slots, but rushed us out (IE tried to give us “last orders” half an hour before our time was up and put the bill down bang on our allotted time). They rushed us out and service was very poor. Felt like the waiters wanted to be anywhere else but there. A very disappointing experience considering the price of the brunch, and it ruined my birthday (which they knew about!).

    We had a very bad time at brunch yesterday. Not only did the food arrive cold, the portions were small, and the service was very slow to bring new plates. The drinks were very watered down, and the service to top up our drinks was again very slow, so we had 3 drinks the whole time. For £65 (with a compulsory 12.5% service charge added) the quality of food, and the quantity of drinks just weren’t acceptable. When mentioning this to staff they didn’t care. Generally this brunch is NOT worth the price.

    Brilliant service! Couldn’t fault the service one bit. Our individual waiter was amazing, he was very attentive to the table even when the restaurant was busy, serving us a total of 10+ cocktails each within the 1hr30mins. He done brilliantly. We never got his name but he was from somewhere in Spain (if that helps). Thanks Gaucho, see you again soon!

    The quality of the brunch was far below what we have previously had all be it at a different branch in London. The bread that came with the dishes was dry and didn't taste fresh. The steak was not seasoned, and generally the dishes where underwhelming. Staff where friendly and helpful, so no issue with the service, however the food was disappointing.

    I love going to Gaucho brunches and this was my first experience of Gaucho brunch at London City. Two friends and I went to the last sitting of brunch on 26th July 2021. We paid for the premium brunch so we paid quite a lot for the whole experience. The food and drinks were delicious and the DJ was very cool and created a great vibe. However, I was extremely disappointed with our waitress. Whilst she was attentive to ensure we had food and drinks organised at each point in the afternoon, she requested last orders at 4pm. This baffled me given the brunch is for 1.5hours, and we began our brunch at 3pm. I have been to other brunches at other Gauchos where last orders were taken closer to around 10mins til the 1.5 hour was up. When I confronted the waitress about this, she unhelpfully commented that it wasn’t really “her problem” because she “wasn’t paying for it” and that they needed to wrap up the brunches in order to ready the tables for the evening. This was really disappointing given we all paid a small fortune and also since I’ve had such great experiences at other Gauchos.

    Fantastic food and plenty of it. Our waitress was amazing! She was always checking in to make sure we had drinks and if we need anything else and got it to us quickly right up to the end of our time slot. Only thing for us was the drinks were very weak, pretty normal for a bottomless brunch for them not to be a 'normal' strength but it was quite noticable here, for us it was about the company as we hadent seen each other in so long so a minor thing.

    An absolutely amazing experience from start to finish. As soon as we arrived it was like party time! The DJ was playing great tunes followed by the saxophonist walking round the tables then the dancers arrived. The food was exceptional, such great choice and selection and always up to Gaucho standards. Our waitress was fabulous, so professional & nothing was too much trouble. I can’t recommend this brunch enough!

    I booked the electro brunch and was disappointed to be put downstairs hidden away. There was no DJ and I have been to an electro brunch at London Bridge during covid last year and there was still a DJ. Therefore there was no brunch/electro vibe. The bacon was also undercooked in the rolls. I didn’t rate it at all and was really disappointed to be honest especially considering how expensive the brunch is.

    Definitely better pre COVID - seems like drinks are watered down and quality of food lost to recoup loss of earnings. Would have always classed this as one of my favourite brunches but after this experience I won’t be rushing back.

    My friends and I missed our 21st birthdays because of lockdown and decided we would do a brunch at Gauchos to celebrate and we had the best time! Our waiter was very friendly and the food and drink service was very good! The food was also amazing! We went at 12 so it wasn't busy but the DJ was good and the atmosphere was perfect for us to celebrate. Can't wait to go back soon.

    There was only one female toilet so the queue was always approximately 30 minutes. It was too loud to hear anything anyone was saying the waitress couldn’t even hear what we were ordering and got our drinks order wrong three times. It took at least 20 minutes between ordering and receiving each round which is far too long for a timed brunch. There was not enough floor staff our waitress was looking after several tables and it was clearly to much work for her we were constantly without food and drink waiting to be served. One of our rounds of food was missed and after waiting 30 minuets we asked where our food was, the response was ‘we brought it out and you rejected it’. In reality they had taken it to the wrong table who had sent it back we had not had any service for 30 minutes including a drinks refill. My entire party of 6 are in agreement that this was a one star service and totally overpriced for what you receive. I have been to many better value brunches. This is the only occasion in a restaurant I have ever had to ask for the service charge to be removed. Would strongly not recommend.

    I’ve been a few times to gaucho electro brunch at different branches but this was the worst experience. The DJ didn’t turn up so there was no buzz or liveliness in the restaurant and ruined the atmosphere completely. The food was very cold when served and the drinks were weak, the vodka peach option was like drinking water. Overall we was disappointed with our experience.
