At a par with other Gaucho’s. Friendly service. A bit slow to get drinks then a bit too fast with the food but nothing too put you off. £5 EACH for empanada which given is a street food is a total rip off!

Booked for a birthday (surprise) meal. Arrived 8:15 as table was booked for 8:30, didn’t get seated till 9pm if not just after. Restaurant was really busy so small wait was understandable but I had to go and ask to be seated in the end. My table had been booked for a week if not longer and I specifically asked for a a special table, during the week they had said this is booked and sorted but in the night they had not done this.

Although the experience prior to food wasn’t great the Food itself was amazing.

Overall Just upset as I didn’t feel like the meal was as special.

The food was very good quality and cooked excellently.
The service let it down, as staters arrived before the drinks and there was only 4 tables in at the time including us.
We also had to chase the side veg we ordered.
The knives are apparently specially made for the chain but good do with sharpening as had to apply quite a bit of pressure to cut the steak.
I am hoping that the service was just one of those things and everyone has off days, however for the price and the 10% “optional” tip automatically added to the bill, I would expect better.

The waiter got our wine order wrong twice, come on I ordered white he brought red.

There were other people playing music on their phones, so should have stopped that.

I don’t mind paying for good food, but I could have gotten the same meal elsewhere in Leeds for half the price and better service.

I tried but we won’t be back.

Steaks were amazing as you would expect. Wine was fabulous and the wine waiters recommendation was spot on. I was made to feel spoiled as it was my 50th and the complementary cocktail was a nice touch. Our host Rob was such a lovely man and our server Alisha was just great. Helpful, knowledgeable and attentive. I love this place and will definitely return. Thank you for a lovely evening.

My partner and I came to Leeds for a night away, we had previously been to Gaucho in Edinburgh and were blown away with our meal. We ordered that exact meal at Gaucho in Leeds and were very disappointed. The 500g Ribeye steak for two people - I could have eaten the 8 small pieces to myself with the included chips and still have had room for desert. We also waited quite a while for our bottle of water and drinks despite there being only approx. 5 tables being used at that time. Unfortunately on this occasion we were disappointed.

We visited on a Tuesday evening to celebrate our son’s graduation, we had a fabulous evening with attentive but not intrusive service, lovely quality food and a funky ambience. Four of us had the chateaubriand, the remaining members of the party had different steaks, all were melt in the mouth gorgeous. We knew the evening was going to be rich for our pockets but we wanted a memorable experience, it was worth every penny, we left feeling like royalty. Thank you to all at Gaucho, Leeds for an evening that will not be forgotten.

Our daughter chose this restaurant for the celebration evening meal following her graduation. We all chose from the set menu, which was amazing value. The starters were delicious and the steaks incredible (3 of us had sirloin and 2 fillet). The desserts were just as good. The service was superb and all the cuts of steak were explained before we made our choices.
At the end of the meal, the head waiter brought our daughter a beautiful dessert cocktail on the house on a ‘Congratulations’ plate.
Could not fault anything and will definitely recommend and return.
Perfect ending to a special day.

Having eaten in the Manchester restaurant prior, I would say that the experience was as good if not better. However the girl, Jess, who was serving on our party of 5, had an excellent attitude, very friendly and to be honest probably created the best relationship and experience in a long time. The food was outstanding and presented beautiful. Overall the experience was excellent.

Went for a Graduation celebration meal
Food was exceptionally good. Great steaks cooked well need nothing else fancy
Service was great too.
Only slight irritation was the initial offer of water was only for bottled at a silly price. This was as we first sat down beforehand looking at menus so couldn’t check the prices first.
Why not offer tap water at that point. I know it may reduce takings a little but giving the option avoids leaving a feeling of being ripped off and is much greener.

I have enjoyed celebrating with my family at this venue previously. This time however it was awful. Steaks supposedly marinaded in garlic and parsley were tasteless and over cooked. Tortellini was completely tasteless and served unappealingly in a watery ‘soup’. I can’t describe the broccoli with garlic and chilli since it just didn’t taste of anything. A side salad of mixed leaves was literally just that with some grated parmesan - no dressing so looked and felt like I was eating grass. So disappointing. The room was too hot and tables too small for four guests. Everything was worryingly crammed onto the table surface along with the twelve glasses, condiments and cutlery that were already there and to be used. I did enjoy the Salta Malbec which was rich and smooth. Staff did what they had to but didn’t enhance our experience. Visit at your peril!

Arrival went well and we were greeted politely and efficiently. We chose to have a drink at the bar before going to our table but this did mean we became a little forgotten. We had to prompt as to whether our table was ready and at this point was then asked for our booking details again.
Once seated at the table we were left waiting a while but when our lovely waitress did arrive she was great. She did appear to be under pressure with possibly too many ya lea to cover, but the service when received was excellent.
Menu was good as was the wine list. And the way the choices are presented was first class.
The highlight is definitely the food which was exceptional. Quality of the steaks were right up there with top city steakhouses in HK, New York and London. Can’t praise the food enough.
Overall 4 stars and the only thing stopping 5 stars was the small issues with service.
Will return and can’t wait to do so.

After eating at Gaucho at the 02 I was expecting a similar experience I took my wife for a special birthday expecting it would be similar to before. She was underwhelmed and we will not be re-visiting. The steak I had at the 02 was the best I had ever eaten. This one was average to good. I chose a particular wine but they could not find it. Offering me a more expensive one which I did not enjoy as I would have the one I ordered.

Myself and my partner visit Gaucho at least once a year for our anniversary, sometimes more if we feel like treating ourselves. We have never had a bad experience and the food is always of great quality. Although not the cheapest steak restaurant you are definitely getting what you pay for which is great steak, cooked perfectly to your liking.

I would always recommend Gaucho to anyone who wants a great steak and maybe even a cocktail to go with it

We enjoyed empanadas for starters and I had fillet for main and my wife had the fillet special,we shared a mushroom side. I managed to squeeze in some ice cream for dessert and the chef wrote happy anniversary on the plate which was a nice touch.

A frustrating start to dinner, as the menu comes with tiny red writing on white to be read with candlelight. `The starters were a bit style over substance, with tiny uptight squares of tuna to be mopped up with really quite lovely accompaniments. The tuna should have been unctuous. The steaks however, faultless, as were the sides. Service was impeccable!

We had a superb early evening meal here on Monday just before the Westlife concert at Leeds Arena.
We were shocked that the restaurant wasn’t full especially as it was bring your own alcohol on a Monday night.
The waiters were fantastic, bringing us ice buckets for our Tesco Prosecco and ciders!
Brilliant explanation of the different cuts of meat available via a real meat board.
The food was truly excellent. We ate from the 3 course lunch menu for £26. An absolute bargain given the quality of the food.
We can’t wait to return!
Just as an aside (although we managed!) - not overly child friendly as no high chairs or baby changing facilities. The food made up for this though!
