As always, dining in Gaucho's is a great experience, always excellent food, wine and atmosphere!!
Good 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.
A 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.
The restaurant was really busy and probably overbooked slightly. We had to wait 20 minutes for our pre-booked table. There were a couple of errors with our order, but I think that is because the staff were so busy. The service was good enough and our waitress was very sweet and friendly. As usual the food was excellent.
Valentine's Day Treat
I 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.
Perfect night out with perfectly cooked food. What more can you ask for :)
Always reliable. Very quiet, even for a Monday, but the food was well presented and the service was efficient. The ambience is a little lacking if the restaurant is not full, as there is no real buslte to the place. Still worth the effort, but would avoid a Monday unless they are offering some sort of deal.
Truly 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!
Having 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 amount
had biggest steak possible
had biggest steak possible and thoroughly enjoyed it.maybe i shouldn't have had a pasty on the way down after all !
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!
I 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.
No cowboy affair
The Gaucho City lived us to expectatitions. It was calm and professional, starting with the friendly staff and ending with brilliant steaks. We loved it.
Gaucho 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.
As always... Great
I love gaucho and this visit did not disappoint. The food was great, the service very good and the weeknight ambience was perfect.
Disability access poor
My 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.
Very enjoyable, especially as the manager gave our party a complimentary bottle of wine on arrival as I am a serial diner here.
The food is dependable and well cooked and presented.
Still expensive, even with a free bottle of wine, but still worth it.
What you would expect from Gaucho .. Excellent meat , very well cooked, extefy tasty sides as well.
Good Argentine wine choice.
It was quite dark in the Resturant and also the toilets , which is cool and trendy but a little hard on the eyes and our waitress although very well versed in the ways of Gaucho slightly annoying at times , but cheerful .
This 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.
As 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.
Food and drinks were up to the usual Gaucho standard! Definitely a good choice!
Outstanding Service Seals the Deal
After 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.
Decent steak, good value
Gaucho do a good job, The prices are reasonable, food is nice, not amazing, but nice, and service is ok although can be slow at times.
Delicious steaks but overpriced given the competition around nowadays. Attentive service. Nice place to go for a more significant lunch where you might want to indicate to your guest that they are important to you.
Service with that lttle bit extra ! We went out for a steak and boy did we get one ! In fact we got 5 Excellent fillets!!. Spoilt for choice with wine and the choice of food.
Definitely come back, lots more to try !
Great food and service
Lovely atmosphere, great food and excellent service.
There something for everyone, would definately recommend!
Always a tad pricy but it
Always a tad pricy but it is the City! Excellent food and service. Will be back!
This was our 1st visit and it won't be the last. Very impressed with the staff knowledge of all of the steaks and wine
Best steaks in town. Attentive
Best steaks in town. Attentive and knowledgeable staff.
Will be going again.
First time at this City branch
First time at this City branch of Gaucho. Mostly the food was still utterly delicious, although one of our steaks had a huge lump of gristle in the middle, which wasn't like Gaucho's usual impeccable quality. This branch was nicely quieter than other branches we've been too & if it wasn't for the slightly disappointing steak we'd be back in a shot.
Great date, thanks
Had a great evening, food was excellent and the wine was superb.
Gaucho will never be considered 'cheap' but its good value for a special occasion.
The food at Gaucho is decent enough, the bread selection great. Our steak was very good, and the sides were fine but not as divine as some other steak places in the City. Good service.
Great steak restaurant
Oustanding and knowledgable staff providing good value for money.
Excellent attentive service
Excellent attentive service, food was excellent and the wine was fantastic. Service was friendly and pleasant.
Lovely as always
Have been to several gaucho's throughout london. The food/drink at City was just as nice as any others.
Would highly recommend Gaucho to anyone. Obviously it is expensive, but the steak's are delicious.
The City restaurant was my least favourite (City, 02, Moorgate, Canary Wharf...) Not to say that it wasn't nice. It just seemed smaller and less bubbly.
All in all, another enjoyable meal, which was exactly what I expected.
Great as always
I'll keep it short and sweet.
Great food, great service and great wine.
Never lets me down!
Good food and nice atmosphere
Good food and nice atmosphere - friendly and helpful staff.
The 3rd Gaucho I've been to in London - another excellent steak beautifully cooked. Great service, with a few complimentaries thrown in which is the type of thing which makes me go back - I will be revisiting here shortly.
Top quality steak
Dinner for 5 before the Fleetwood Mac concert. Excellent dinner which was a perfect start for the evening. Good service at just the right pace so we had a great dinner in good time to leave for the concert.
A Satisfying Dining Experience
We had a beautiful lunch at Gaucho City. Everything was perfect especially the service and the quality of the food. It was busy but the atmosphere suited having a conversation over great food. The pace and timing of the courses was such that the 3 hours we spent there flew by effortlessly.
Fantastic food and great style.
Fantastic food and great style. For a restaurant whose theme is based on beef, the menu for 'non-beef' is excellent.
Nice steaks, good atmosphere and friendly staff are what Gaucho's is all about. For some reason there seemed a bit more pressure to 'sell' cocktails - may be this was a one off.
Marked down on service but I suspect this was down to under resourcing, no actual fault of the staff on duty. Also a rare mistake with the first Peppercorn Sauce (which was immediately replaced). Otherwise, spot on - I have yet to find a better steak in London.
All I can say is wow. Picked Gaucho City as it looked quite unique compared to the others. Was not dissapointed! We booked our table for 7pm on a Monday night. The restaurant looks great, I've read other comments about it being too dark but apart from the toilets (which were basically lit by candlelight!) it wasn't an issue. Our waitress was excellent, friendly and chatty but overly so. The food was unbelievably good, could not fault any of it. Perhaps the best meal out I've had in London, this is a must for all meat lovers!
Great food and excellent service. It is expensive but food and service means they can get away with it
Really good service from arriving to leaving and the quality of the steak was top notch. £130 for two excluding service was a bit on the epensive side though.
Been to this branch of Gaucho
Been to this branch of Gaucho many times and as always, the Food & Service were great and so was the ambient.
Will definitely return.
