Diner Reviews
  • "From being met in the awesome looking bar and being offered an fab selection of cocktails right through to the extensive selection of high quality steaks and Malbec everything about Gaucho is special in my opinion. Personalised service. Subtle attention to special occasions. Can't beat it."

  • "Once again an excellent evening food was fantastic as was the service."
    dined on 12/04/2014
  • "Food was good. Waiter was irritating, commented in my TAG watch when we sat down at our table! (Is this in the training?!) Steaks were excellent, wine a little over priced. Scallops cold.."
    dined on 09/04/2014
  • "We visited the restaurant on Friday for my partners birthday the food and service was out standing the only downfall the wine was expensive and would of been better topping the glass up a little bit more for the value. All in all a lovely experience would deferentially recommend it and visit again."
    dined on 04/04/2014
  • "Wow! What can I say. It was my first visit to Gouchos Leeds and we had only been given out free warm fresh bread while looking at menus and I was impressed. Excellent all round, pricey but worth it."
    dined on 29/03/2014
  • "Gauchos Leeds is a classy restaurant servicng high end food in relaxed but impressive surroundings Service and food are top quality although the prices do reflect that All in all it is excellent"
    dined on 30/03/2014
  • "We have visited Gaucho Leeds for over 5 years and have never been disappointed, however, on this occasion we were....the meat was medium rare not medium as requested, the rib eye on our near platter was awful...complete fat, barely any meat on the cut. We complained to 2 different people.. Nothing was done in response to this...hence the poor review, in summary, expensive for poor quality meat, lost a great customer, go to Rare in Leeds instead!!"
    dined on 29/03/2014
  • "I absolutely love Gaucho and go as often as I can. Their service is impeccable, steaks are out of this world and the wine selection is extensive and amazing. The ambiance is perfect too."
    dined on 29/03/2014
  • "I love this place. I guarantee you won't have a better steak ANYWHERE"
    dined on 24/03/2014
  • "Outstanding restaurant where service and making you feel special is their highest priority. Knowledge of the food available is outstanding and their recommendations are perfect. One of the best restaurants in the Leeds area!"
    dined on 22/03/2014
  • "Knowledge of staff = excellent, talk to you about your preffered cut, how you want it cooked, incluing texture/colour etc. Amazing wine selection. very knowledgable staff. Paid £40 for a bottle of Malbec which was well worth the money. Good atmoshphere. I imagine this would be good for a group of people. Negatives - Sick in the toilets, hadnt been cleaned up. Steak ordered medium/no blood - it came rare. Side dish didnt arrive- But was charged for. Staff apologised offered to recook steak. Manager/service staff were lovely and offered a free desert etc. But when paying so much for a night out- this shouldnt happen. Maybe I just hit on a bad night?! To me this is an expensive treat, so quite disappointing."
    dined on 15/03/2014
  • "I've been to a number of Gauchos, mostly down in London, but the Leeds one doesn't disappoint. The food and the service was impeccable, on a very busy valentines night! I'd even booked it at relatively short notice and they'd still got us in. Excellent venue."
    dined on 14/02/2014
  • "Always fabulous food and service, can't fault this place. Love it every time."
    dined on 08/03/2014
  • "First time to Gaucho and was thoroughly impressed with everything. Excellent food and wine was equalled by friendly and helpful service. Will definitely be back!"
    dined on 07/03/2014
  • "A further visit to Leeds brought us back for another outstanding meal. Harry was our waiter again and made great recommendations as to the best cuts to eat. Amy checked on us to say hello following our last visit to make sure everything was OK. The service is first class and I would recommend anyone to visit for a meal."
    dined on 06/03/2014
  • "Everything about our lunch was spot on. From friendly staff to excellent service & food. Would highly recommend this venue to anyone. This is the second time we have been and we will be back again."
    dined on 02/03/2014
  • "Food was good, if expensive, but poor service. Tables crammed in and my wife gets panicky in that sort of situation. Couldn't/wouldn't find us a suitable table. Ended up eating in the bar area, which was ok. Ended up feeling better overall as some good waiting staff, so much so that my wife booked a booth for her birthday with friends, the waiter having made a point of saying "nothing is too much trouble" only for the manager to get involved and to come over tell us that she might get bumped from the booth if they got a bigger booking., Basically it is all about the £ and not about the service. It would have been a big spending party as well - your loss greedy Gauchos. Have had much better service experiences at other Gauchos."
    dined on 28/02/2014
  • "Enjoyed two tender tasty steaks and delightful tomato salad with fries, our only gripe, they could be home made!. We like to eat early so not too busy but good atmosphere and music! Attentive and knowledgeable staff. We will be back."
    dined on 01/03/2014
  • "The food was absolutely top notch. We had a gift voucher but were still astounded by the bill! Great treat but you may need a second mortgage to pay the bill!!"
    dined on 28/02/2014
  • "We dined at gaucho as I family , and have to say that once again our child was made more than welcome . This is a fab place and every time we come the food service etc is always spot one , the steak is the best I have tasted and I am looking forward to the next time we dine at the amazing Groucho :)"
    dined on 19/02/2014
  • "It was a fantastic night from entering the premises so well looked after.The decor is wonderful the music was great.We were looked after by Harry he was fantastic explained all the different cuts of meet and advised us on what to order nothing was too much trouble.We even got a free side dish brought over by the general manager as it was our first visit and she had a chat with us .The steaks were amazing even my husband thought so and he's very hard to please.Just wished we lived closer so we could go more often!!!!"
    dined on 22/02/2014
  • "This was our second visit, and it was just as good as the first. The food was delicious, I had the Gaucho tasting plate & it was cooked to perfection. The wine recommendation was presented by a knowledgeable waiter, and again the wine was a great choice. Will definitely return!"
    dined on 21/02/2014
  • "Over priced for the offering! Food was good just over priced for what it was!"
    dined on 15/02/2014
  • "GLASS OF WINE 6.95 (1/3 GLASS) VEG - CARROT, BLACK PUDDING N OTHER STUFF (IN A 2" LONG PAPER PARCEL ABOUT THING ! LOOKED LIKED MICE DROPPINGS) TENDERISED STEAK IN BATTER WASNT AS THICK AS A PIECE OF PAPER, WAS JUST 3 SLICES OF GREASY BATTER :-( PRICES RIDICULOUS - YA GET BETTER BATTERED FOOD AT McD'S/KFC - YOU COULDNT PAY ME TO GO BACK !!!"
    dined on 14/02/2014
  • "My boyfriend and I ate at gaucho leeds on Valentines day. The food was incredible, the service amazing and overall a thoroughly enjoyable evening. Thank you."
    dined on 14/02/2014
  • "Ill start out positive service was great, food was tasty but for the price you pay to come away still hungry is bad in anyone's books that was starter main with 3 sides and desert wouldn't go again but had to try it once"
    dined on 14/02/2014
  • "This was our second visit to Gaucho Leeds and we love it. We were seated in a booth that made it feel like we were the only customers. The food is excellent and the waiting staff are so knowledgeable you really feel like you can follow their recommendations. It's expensive - £348 for 4 of us but this is justified by the quality. If I had a grumble it would be the wine prices are just too high, I'm sure they could make these more reasonable however it didn't stop us having two £54 bottles. Would I go again? Definitely - but it's really for special celebrations"
    dined on 15/02/2014
  • "The restaurant is very dark for evening dining with closely packed tables and, therefore, a lot of noise. Rather marred the experience."
    dined on 08/02/2014
  • "My wife and I invited some friends to join me to celebrate our anniversary and regret the experience. We arrived at 8.45 to have a cocktail in the bar and waited15 mins to have our drinks order taken once ordered we waited 20 minutes to get the drinks which we were not happy about. After eventually receiving and finishing our drink we were taken to our table and we we had our order taken quickly. We received our starter in about 10 minutes the problem happened our main course was delayed and took about 30 minutes to arrive. Nobody made us aware of any delay or bothered to tell us of any problems. When we eventually received our main course we were told a large party in the restaurant caused the delay that is great but please inform people."
    dined on 08/02/2014
  • "We had a lovely experience dining at Gauchos but unfortunately one of the steaks wasn't to the normal standard. We mentioned it and the service was excellent. They couldn't do enough to apologise and very kindly took the steaks off the bill. We definitely will return as everything else was excellent. Many thanks to all the team."
    dined on 07/02/2014
  • "Although the steak itself was really good, I would have expected 'home made' chips, not frozen. I would also expect better service - we were not asked if everything was alright with our meal, had to wait to get our plates cleared, forgot to serve our side order of salad, I had to request the sweet menu, and also had to request the bill. Not really good value."
    dined on 31/01/2014
  • "Well ran & service was impeccable. Knowledge of the wine & food was also very good!"
    dined on 01/02/2014
  • "We were not greeted as we arrived so we went to the bar. Someone then came over to check our reservation. We were encouraged to take our seats as we were 3 minutes late and it would mean "less time at the table" if we were to go to the bar to wait for the rest of our party. We were taken to a 4 seater table in a hidden away corner of the restaurant which had been set for 5 people by squeezing 3 places along one side. This was rectified by a manager and we were given an extra table so we were all able to comfortably fit around the table. As I have said in the title, the food was excellent when it came but up until that point we were less than satisfied with the service. Had it not been dealt with suitably by we would have left."
    dined on 24/01/2014
  • "Food was fantastic as always defo recommend gaucho for any time of day eating only grumble is we had to wait at the front reception for 6 minutes before anyone noticed we were there even though it was quiet and I had a table reservation!"
    dined on 18/01/2014
  • "Very impressive ambiance and feel to the place. Service was very good - they really looked after us. We splashed out on a £££ bottle of wine (Malbec) which was outstanding, as were the steaks. Highly recommended but expect to pay more for it than other places."
    dined on 29/12/2013
  • "Gaucho lived up to its high standards on a busy New Year's Eve. Food and ambience great as usual and the staff were very attentive even though they were run off their feet. A great night - we'll be back!"
    dined on 31/12/2013
  • "We visited Gauchos a year or two ago and fell in love with it then, I haven't been able to eat steak since without comparing it (unfavourably) with our first trip. It wiped our credit card but as we ate we knew it was worth every penny. When we decided to travel to Leeds again we just HAD to come back to Gauchos. However there was a tiny worry that it would not live up to the first experience. We needn't have worried. Fantastic service starting with Amy calling pre meal to the excellent waiter (sorry forgot his name as a result of the cocktails - Richard maybe!?). The food was out of this world. That is all I can say and the waiter chose superb wine and sides to accompany. Simply Awesome!"
    dined on 03/01/2014
  • "This is truely amazing restaurant, it's quite pricey but so worth it. We tend to go here for special occasions and with friends. The steaks are the best we have ever tasted. The staff are very friendly and make you feel very welcome. We celebrated New Year's Eve here and it was well worth if!"
    dined on 31/12/2013
  • "We had a very enjoyable evening. The food was cooked to perfection and service was very friendly if a little slow at times."
    dined on 31/12/2013
  • "My partner and I, have been waiting to visit Goucho for a while.On arriving(29/12/13)we were greeted with a friendly smile and pleasent member of the management team (sorry I've forgot her name).We were shown to our table, and were told who would be looking after us for the evening, My partner & I like to be seated in a more private setting, and asked if we could move to another table, and this was no problem,David (we think that is his name), sorry I am not one for remembering names,he is A+++ pleasent,funny,knowledgleable from the start.All I can say is,whatever you have,regards food & wine(go with what is recommended to you), don't think about the cost, enjoy the experience,like us you'll tell all your friends. Thanks Goucho Debbie Owen"
