Dined at gaucho on the 7th July for a date, we were served by andreia who was attentive, knowledgeable and guided us both through the menu as it was our first time dining there, she made suggestions to us both based on how we liked our steak cooking and was knowledgeable of the wine menu, her check backs were more than just "how is it" and she went above and beyond to make sure we recieved the best service possible, our seat (at the top of the balcony) was phenomenal and allowed us to enjoy the evening that much more.

We were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the dining experience. The greater space between diners enhanced rather than detracted from the ambience.

Currently there is a very limited menu. I requested well done lamb which was overdone and smelled of burn. Prices are very dear but quality of food does not reflect that.

I have dined there more than 3 times because I wanted to give them a few chances before I rule them out. Am now in a position to give a decent review and I rate the food at 3/10 and that’s me being nice.

Good service overall. Drinks were late n warm . Expect prompt service n cold cocktails from a restaurant like this. Steak always excellent . Fish n starters very poor. Fish was too salty. Would only go for the steak other stuff on menu very poor . Chef needs to improve it.

Late booking from myself
Really quite because of the world wide health scare
The staff really nice in fact had a genuine chat with are server, he was from Poland unfortunately I can't remember his name but he made it personal which made are night (Southampton) if you read this thank you.
My steak was personally to my liking, but my other half didnt quite enjoy it and left it, i think it wasnt to her taste/flavour in what it had be cooked in. And I couldn't but my finger on it.
But to see her leave a 300g fillet and to be honest say nothing because shes not like that. But I am and made me really upset and disappointed as I'm making are time together special as she only flys in once or twice a month from the UAE. I'd like to say the wine selection was really good I personally found my choice really good

It's hard for me to say not good stuff about this restaurant but when my girlfriend who travels the world for an airline who goes to the best cities says shes not liking it and leaves a 300g fillet steak. Its horrible as I wanted it to be extra special
Looking forward to your reply
Mike

We have been regular visitors to Gaucho in the past, and have always enjoyed the experience. We dined here at the weekend as a table of 7. We had booked a table and waited a short while to be seated. Once seated we waited some time for a drinks order to be taken. The cuts of steak were brought out but no recommendations given as to how they should be cooked. Our favourite wine has also been removed from the menu.... gutted!! It was a shame to find the bernaisse sauce was served at room temperature, spoilt the dish for me. We enjoy the experience of Gaucho, but this time we felt a bit let down by the speed of service and attentiveness. We ended up paying £65 per head, and the experience just didn't reflect that.

Some of the best steak we’ve ever had. Sommelier made a phenomenal pairing of a Malbec (naturally), not available in the shops, to go with our food. A tad pricey but almost certainly worth it.

Best steak meal I've had in ages.great kids menu too. The only thing that ruined it was 12.5% service charge on a quiet Sunday afternoon for a table of 2 adults and 2 children.

Me and my boyfriend have been to Gaucho twice, a friend of ours advised that it wasn't as good as others had said but decided to make our own opinion - glad we did!

Both times we've been we've received excellent friendly, personable service and made to feel comfortable and welcome. The steaks have been explained, perfectly cooked and timed perfectly. We'd been well catered for in terms of drinks and any potential deserts.

Great experience and some good memories each time. Will come back again!

A beautiful setting and food to die for. My steak was perfect. Impressed we were shown the cuts of meat before we ordered. Our waiter was the perfect host and nothing was too much trouble. The live music was great.
Will return !

To be fair, the meat served at Gaucho must be the greatest meat ive ever eaten. It was tender, juicy and overall a great food experience. Would recommend the house wine, worked well for our party of 8 with different cuts of meat. The dessert also had high quality, would recommend both the cheesecake and Fondant. We will visit this restaurant on our next trip to Manchester 100%

We were disappointed with our experience at Gaucho; not because of the food or service, which were very good; moreover it was the clientele which let the restaurant down. Most of who would not have looked out of place in McDonalds. We had to ask to move tables because the two “gentlemen” we were sat near were drunk and their language offensive. The staff seemed powerless to address their “singing” especially when it’s not an inexpensive restaurant to visit. We wouldn’t therefore recommend and we won’t be returning which is a shame as the steak was amazing!
