We visited on valentines day. Overall a nice evening. Had to send one of our meals back though as chicken was slightly undercooked. Steak was delicious. The waitress and manager were extremely hospitable and friendly. The waitress was attentive and asked us frequently if we were satisfied with everything. Due to the issue with one of the meals the manager gave us a big discount on the final bill and continued to top up my partners beverage which was a good gesture. Some lovely champagne and a decorated anniversary plate to celebrate our 3 years which was lovely. Overall a very nice evening. Well done Guachos.

The food was amazing, outstanding steak and it was cool that the waitress came out and showed us the various cuts before we ordered. Excellent selection of drinks too. The service was impeccable, very attentive and even when we noticed a longer than usual waiting time for our dessert, when it did come out it was with removed from our bill which more than made up for the wait! my only criticism is that the volume of the music was a little too loud but other than that, a great meal.

Top quality steak
Little on the pricey side when you consider that any sides or trimmings (incl. sauce) is extra.
The creamy mashed potatoes were really like a pureed child’s meal. Not nice at all. The fillet steak though was like chocolate. Awesome

Service was terrible. Table wasn’t ready when we arrived, so we sat at the bar for 15 minutes without being served! No requests for any further drinks at the table, had to flag down waiter passing for a drink.
DJ playing made it hard to hear conversation across the table.

Date day for myself and wife after watching Tina turner the musical.
Food was awesome, I had scallops for starters and fillet for main, and both dishes exceptionally cooked to perfection,
Staff great, our waiter great, and the whole experience made our day special. The alarm will definitely go again. Thanks Dean and Nicola.

I have been looking forward to going to Gaucho for some time, and whilst visiting London I thought I would try it. As someone who really enjoys steaks I had heard good reviews in general and was well looking forward to it.

I was bitterly disappointed, the starters were ok, however out of the 4 steaks we ordered they were all not cooked correctly, either the food was served warm, we got rare when asked for it to be well done, I was so disappointed. The staff were good and the service was excellent, we were not charged for the steaks but that was not the point I was really looking forward to a nice steak.

Crazy loud and busy, atmosphere a little like a prep school dining hall. Good service - not overly attentive but polite and well informed. Steaks were all requested medium rare - my chorizo di lomo was medium-to-well done (but do you send it back and wait while everyone finishes? No.). Good wines as always, some a quite reasonable prices, we took the waitress’s suggestions on red and white and both were good at reasonable prices. Aides were good and sensible sizes for one person.

One of the tenderest ribeye steaks I have ever had - It was on rare side of rare (thankfully no seeping blood) and could be almost cut through with a fork. A tad too noisy for me but that maybe my age. And the cheapest red I could find on the menu was £29. A nice but less expensive bottle would have been appreciated.

It was the first time since I have been going to Gauchos City that I ever had cause for complaint.
My steak was overcooked, burnt on the outside.
The chips were dry and no one showed our guests the steak board. We had to ask for the bread and the service was very slow.
When we told the management they could not have been more apologetic and did what they could to speed things up.
I will be going back as every one makes mistakes and in general I would recommend the restaurant on past experiences alone.

We enjoyed a date night here and were both really in the mood for a superb steak. Our waitress was so friendly and professional. We both had The Lomo fillet steak which was cooked to perfection, 225g was more than enough and my steak, which was medium was spot on.
Sides were delicious ours were carrots and chips with a delicious salad all washed down with a Rioja. Perfect evening really.
