Outstanding Service Seals the DealAfter a disappointing experience at Gaucho Smithfield, I was loathed to try another City venue for Gaucho. However, from the moment we walked in, all staff were fully engaged, friendly and super helpful. The table service was excellent and the waitress had great knowledge and showed enormous passion.
This is definitely a must visit Gaucho.17/05/2013 00:00:00Scrumptious!Food and drinks were up to the usual Gaucho standard! Definitely a good choice!17/05/2013 00:00:00SAAs usual very little to fault here. Steak, cooked to perfection, service was excellent, wine choice and recommendation was great, the desert was lovely. Best steak in the city.03/05/2013 00:00:00NiceThis was my first visit to a Gaucho. I found the staff to be very friendly and polite and the food was amazing. I do feel it is all a little overpriced but I'd definitely go again.29/04/2013 00:00:00Disability access poorMy partner is wheel chair bound and on arrival the lift didn't work so I had to carry her down as we had travelled a long way.10/04/2013 00:00:00As always... GreatI love gaucho and this visit did not disappoint. The food was great, the service very good and the weeknight ambience was perfect.09/04/2013 00:00:00Gaucho City - hits the steak spot!Gaucho City is very similar to the other Gauchos, but feels a bit more intimate and has a great long bar to have a cocktail at before eating. Food is as always great and was a really good atmosphere mid week for a lunch with a friend.28/03/2013 00:00:00No cowboy affairThe Gaucho City lived us to expectatitions. It was calm and professional, starting with the friendly staff and ending with brilliant steaks. We loved it.20/03/2013 00:00:00Gaucho CityI had a great business lunch with a female client at Gaucho. We were almost the only two ladies in there but we both really enjoyed the food and the wine and it was a great place to catch up. As usual the service was fantastic - very attentive but not overly so. It was a great lunch.08/03/2013 00:00:00Amazing service!Everybody knows Gaucho has great steaks but I have to say the staff is amazing. I was there for dinner last night with a client and they made me feel like a king. I have been a couple of times with other people and liked it a lot. So now I returned to what I think is the coolest place to get a steak. Smiles everywhere, "nice to see you again", even got a nod from the chef. My client just looked around and said thank you for taking me here, this is cool! Steaks were amazing, off course, and the cheese too. Can't wait to come back!07/03/2013 00:00:00had biggest steak possiblehad biggest steak possible and thoroughly enjoyed it.maybe i shouldn't have had a pasty on the way down after all !06/03/2013 00:00:00First timerHaving never been to Gaucho before, and my partner having been many times (and raved about it), I thought I had better give it a go ....... what a treat.
Excellent hospitality; never made to feel rushed (even though she was late !!); staff really helpful in every respect (especially Emma - more than just a waitress) .... and the food .... WOW .... best steak I have ever had - cooked to perfection. Also need to mention the sides - just the right amount27/02/2013 00:00:00Truly Great Steaks!!Had lunch there today and was really impressed with the food. I had an amazing ribeye, cooked to perfection. Staff friendly and professional. Nice warm interior and great wine list, check out the Malbecs!25/02/2013 00:00:00Valentines DinnerPerfect night out with perfectly cooked food. What more can you ask for :)15/02/2013 00:00:00Valentine's Day TreatI took my girlfriend here for Valentine's Day and we had a wonderful time. The ambience was great, the food phenomenal and we were recommended a bottle of Malbec that we thoroughly enjoyed.
The only downside, and the reason behind 4 rather than 5 stars, is that whilst the service was exceptional and friendly once we were sat down, it was an effort getting to that point. We eventually got sat down 50 minutes after our booked time, and it was clear they were just sitting whoever complained first (it was pretty clear they had forgotten about us and had been sitting people who had come later than us until we said something).
Overall though the service at the table and food got our night back on track and led to a hugely enjoyable evening.14/02/2013 00:00:00ValentinesA great restaurant, like all Gauchos. The food was excellent and the service attentive. On this occasion however things were rushed to fit in a second sitting which made us feel pressured to eat quickly. Hopefully a one off for what is usually a great place.14/02/2013 00:00:00Always reliableGood old Gaucho, always reliable for excellent steak (and there was none of our first selection as the we were told the chef didn't think it was good enough). Nice wine, if a little pricey and the usual service with a smile. The only mark down was the background music which was a little like being in the front row at Wembley.13/02/2013 00:00:00Excellent MealAs always, dining in Gaucho's is a great experience, always excellent food, wine and atmosphere!!13/02/2013 00:00:00Very nice but at a priceOur team Christmas lunch was cancelled so we decided to go to Gauchos to make up for it after a recommendation from a colleague.
There were 7 of us in total. Gaucho city is a very popular restaurant so we had to wait a couple of weeks for a lunchtime table which wasn't a problem. None of us had been before and by all accounts all who attended were very impressed.
The waitress was very polite and helpful at all times as well as being very attentive. She assisted all of us in recommending courses but without being pushy or too opinionated. The idea of showing you the meat cuts was pretty good in my opinion as it also gave you an idea of what to expect in terms of portion sizes.
I would definitely go again but only for special occasions.08/02/2013 00:00:00Some things just get betterAfter a few disappointments elsewhere in the City, it is great to see that Gaucho remains great. Seeing big slabs of beef on a board while the cuts are explained is a good way to whet the appetite. The starters arrived promptly and were bang on what was expected. The steaks were fantastically flavoured and cooked - just how a steak should be. It is no great surprise that a steak joint knows how to cook steak, but this was really good. Washed down with a good bottle of red. A great business lunch. Not cheap, but well worth splashing out on great food with sound service. The only downside is the 'cosiness' of the tables so close together - just my particular beef. In a basement, so not one for the claustrophobes.28/01/2013 16:00:00great steakgreat steak as always. This together with all the other good food and wine always makes the Gaucho a pleasure to go to22/01/2013 16:00:00Great service!I have eaten in Gaucho Sloane Square before but this was my first time at the City branch. I came here for a meal with my boyfriend to celebrate his birthday. The atmosphere was very romantic, the food was great, and as always the Gaucho service was 5 star. Come and eat in here if you feel like being spoiled for an evening. The food is a little on the expensive side but it's absolutely worth it for the level or service you receive. Will definitely go back. One tip - ask your server for wine recommendations if you aren't sure.20/01/2013 16:00:00Food and wine always excellentFood and wine always excellent and a very slick operation.17/01/2013 16:00:00Dinner for two on a TuesdayDinner for two on a Tuesday night; service and food both top-notch, we were very well looked after and I will definitely be back.14/01/2013 16:00:00Gaucho CityFor those who like meat, this is the best restaurant in city to my way of think. Informed, speedy and caring staff combine with superb cuts of meat and impeccable Argentinian wines combine to create the perfect evening.

A superb range, cooked to perfection.19/12/2012 16:00:00Always deliversI do enjoy Gaucho. The service level is consistently excellent and I'm always satisfied.18/12/2012 16:00:00Great treat, want to go again soon!As always in Gauchos the service was impeciable, the lady serving us was friendly and sincere. Although busy as in the christmas period, we were never left waiting and the atmosphere was good. The food was great, the steak was incredible.
Hoping to go again soon and would definitely recommend to a friend. Even though I went with a friend as a christmas treat, it's not all that expensive (especially for what you are getting) to go on just a whim.18/12/2012 16:00:00Great relaxed business lunchI have only heard good things about Gauchos, however am always sceptical especially with chains, as more often than not I find high expectations leads to disappointment! 100% not the case with Gaucho City, the decor is very trendy, staff are extremely well presented, friendly and knowledgable, the food is- as promsied- very very good, literally the best steak I have ever had, great wine selection and cocktails. It has a nice feel and not your typical stiff city dining, it was relaxed and there was no clock watching or pressure to leave by staff due to 'sittings'. The only criticism I have is that there could be a couple less tables, as towards the back of the restaurant it is a little cramped. But really.. who cares- the place is great!17/12/2012 16:00:00Always good steakGaucho seldom disappoints in the red wine and steak arena. Being a Friday lunch in December the restaurant was filled with business diners and office lunches but the staff remained attentive and helpful as ever. Always recommended.13/12/2012 16:00:00Gaucho's is always good funGaucho's is always good fun and provides good food and service. Slightly irritatingly we were told when we arrived that there was a 1.5 hour limit on the table, which I wasn't aware of at booking. But they extended it by 15 minutes so in the end we had plenty of time. The steaks are not quite up there with those of Hawksmoor, in my view, but Gaucho's is more than just the steaks. It;'s as much about the drinks, the atmosphere, the sense of fun. And it's never failed in that. The food is good, and filling. I love the choice of a hundred malbecs. And the cocktails are good. Not cheap but I've never been disappointed.13/12/2012 00:00:00Christmas PartyWe went with our small company for a Christmas dinner, and we all had a lovely time. The waitress was fantastic, very personable and helped us make decisions on what to eat, as some of us have never been to Gaucho before.
The food and wine were fantastic. Even though we got there too early for our table to be ready, we were treated like VIP guests and sat at the bar for a few drinks while waiting, and our table was ready exactly on time.
Overall, wonderful place, very busy, but great!12/12/2012 16:00:00Can't go wrongIf your after a mean steak this has to be the place although it may be pricey (gotta pay the rent though) that Beef was prime and juicy, you can't go wrong.08/11/2012 00:00:00Informal business meetingExcellent location for a few glasses of red wine and some beef.29/08/2012 00:00:00Gaucho is dependable and deliversGaucho is dependable and delivers every time !
