Had a lovely meal here, but were surprised we had to ask for the full menu options, we had only been offered a small options menu. Also had to ask for the wine list. We had to ask a couple of times for our bill, it was a very slow process, to be fair the manager did apologies, they felt as they had others bring to eat and leave quickly that we would be happy to continue to sit and enjoy our evening, they acknowledged they had left us too long and apologized. We had a coeliac in our group and the serving staff were very good at helping identify what was GF and ensured that other members of staff were aware of this and even bought our GF bread which was very tasty. So all in all a very good experience except for the delay whilst trying to pay. I would go back and eat here again.

Our experience was amazing The staff were so welcoming and efficient but also made it clear that they wanted us to enjoy our meal and couldn’t have been more helpful when one of our party was a little delayed They were aware we needed to get to the theatre for a certain time and did everything they could to make sure we were served promptly
Wine recommendation was first glass with knowledgable staff

It was our father in law 80 th birthday and we were 18 people including his sons and grandson. We came all the way from Panama for this great event at gaucho. The service was courteous and the food was what we expected. Great steaks and well served drinks.

Staff were very attentive, made the occasion feel special as we were out for our 15th wedding anniversary. Wine glass was kept topped up at a nice pace, never felt rushed. At the end as we were leaving our waiter came over and shook our hands and offered his congratulations again - wish I could remember his name (have such a bad memory) but him along with the maitre d were fantastic.

Wrong music for the ambiance, Something more latin dance or theatre inspired rather than modern pop would have beenmuch better.

We booked a table at Gaucho Chancery for our Wedding Anniversary. The restaurant was easy to find, walking distance from Chancery Lane tube station. We were offered a choice of seats and opted for a table by the window. The restaurant was quiet when we arrived and though the tables started to become occupied it was still a great, relaxed atmosphere. The waiting staff were friendly and helpful, not inclined to hover but attentive to our needs. We choose to eat from the set menu which gave a smaller range of options but enough choices for us to ‘um’ and ‘aah’ over. We both chose the tuna starter and it was delicious. It arrived well presented and in a timely manner, accompanied with breads. For our mains we again chose the same item: chorizo sirloin, mine cooked ‘blue’, my husband’s ‘rare’. The steaks were tender, well prepared and absolutely fabulous. The side of fries and sauces complemented perfectly. For dessert we differed in our choice. My husband opted for the mixed berries, lime cream and raspberry meringue whereas I chose the dulce de leche panna cotta. Again the food was excellent. As a surprise, just before dessert was served, the staff brought a decorated plate with chocolate truffles as a wedding anniversary treat. Our entire experience at this restaurant, from start to finish, was very good and I would not hesitate to recommend to others.

Went out with my partner for a date night and decided to use the TimeOut deal. We shared a tiro de ancho steak which was cooked to perfection, however we would have preferred it without the chimichurri sauce on top, which is delicious, but can be a bit overpowering.
Chips and asparagus were good and the 2018 Malbec was too, although a bit on the warmer side.
The deal didn’t include desserts, but we both got one. The ice cream was good but being only two scoops maybe a bit too little, however my coconut tres leches was amazing!
Overall we had a very pleasant night, which was made even better by the waiter and we will definitely recommend the restaurant to anyone who enjoys a good steak.

Viande toujours exquise. Je suis plus nuancé sur l’intérêt de proposer des spécialités japonaises (yellow tail, cure tuna) en entrée: c’est cher et pas au niveau de ce qui se fait chez les concurrents.

This restaurant has a great location, the décor is fine, good ambiance and the staff were good. But I cant give the steaks more than 3 out of 5. That doesn't mean that they were not good, there are just better steaks available in London these days!

I took my fiance here for a birthday meal, i found a great deal on groupon. We had a 3 course meal, the steak was amazing and the service was great. The only downfall was the fact we had to sit in the not pretty area of the resturant and the room temperature was extremely hot which made it very uncomfortable to sit a full 3 course meal!

Have been to the Gaucho in the Northern section in Manchester previously and had certain expectations. Most were met but unfortunately there was a rather rowdy group in the restaurant which really did spoil the ambience. However that aside, the meal and the service was very good. I have never used a coupon in a restaurant of this standard but I would only say that the staff would have to keep in mind that even with a coupon I still spent a good amount of money for the privilege of eating at Gaucho. Overall both of us enjoyed the meal.

I fell foul of the classic "don't order fish in a steak restaurant". The fish was oily, with some sort of puree and a clump of fried onion. A beige plate with no vegetables or anything to cut through the copious amount of oil on the plate. I was not alerted to the requirement to order sides with the fish (as in most restaurants this comes with sides). They did, however, give me my dessert on the house so kudos to the management.

Awful service. 3 of us went for an occasion. 20 minutes sat at the table before we were actually asked for a drink.
Wasn’t shown the steak board.
Desert menu was given to us about 25 minutes after the mains were finished/taken away.
Wasn’t even asked by a waiter if we wanted desert. It’s a good job we waved somebody down to get the bill half an hour later, as I’m confident they forgot we were there.
Awful - wouldn’t return.
