15 reviews of The Gaucho Grill in English
The setting just by the river is beautiful, the interior is very stylish, I even love the music! The service is outstanding and the steak, believe me, it's fantastic. So are the sides.
I highly recommend this place as I as well recommend to reserve a table on the weekend, could be really packed on a Saturday night.
Apr 2012 update: Having gone back recently for a second visit, I have to say that I have to downgrade my review from 4 stars to 3. While Gaucho was one of the top places to get a steak a few years ago, now with really good new places like Hawksmoor around, it just doesn’t cut it for the price it charges. The steak is still good, but not outstanding. And the service on this visit was irritating – the waitress obviously had memorized a script and was just regurgitating it, even though none of us was interested in listening and just wanted to get back to our conversation. She was trying extremely hard to upsell us on sides, drinks, desserts – and it was just too obvious and awkward.
Sometimes its hard to give a star rating for high-end places that charge alot, because they usually come out tops in all the categories as expected from their higher prices.
However, I think Guacho deserves my 4 star rating. The decor looks very posh, but not too over the top. It is best for a romantic meal or a serious celebration.
Uopn seating, our waiter was with s quickly, and was very polite and informative. Drinks and bread were brought quickly, and after a while he appeared again with a wooden slab with the different types of steak on it.
It is here where they impress; he spent a good 5 minutes explaining the different types of steaks they do, what the best cooking conditions were (e.g. medium-rare, medium, well done, etc) and what to expect in terms of taste of the different types.
The steaks themselves were amazing… they just melt in your mouth, and they are just cooked right. The side dishes were a bit disappointing though.. the chips were a bit salty, and the mushrooms a bit bland.
The price came up to about £30 a head, which is pricey compared to other steak places, but this is definitely one notch above and well worth the money for a special occasion.
Should be 4 and a half. expensive, but the location dictates the price. service second to none. very impressed by the knowledge of the waiting staff. Their recomendations are spot on. I decided on their ribeye because this would be cooked medium, and what a delight it was. How the chef gets the different steaks cooked to perfection (we all had differnt cuts) was amazing. Remember the price is for the steak only, everything else is additional price, steak averages £21, side dishes average £4, sauces £2.65. The meal was superb, but I had every faith that if there had been a problem it would have been sorted with no hesitation. Cocktails and wine cellar equally impressive. Enjoy.
The best steak London has to offer? I hope not.
Don't get me wrong, the place is nice. The waiter comes around with raw examples of steaks and explains the cuts and choices available.
I went for the most expensive one, English (i.e. bloody). Since I had seen the raw steak I couldn' help but notice it had shrunk dramatically - not a sign of high quality beef (or meat). The taste was nice but there was a chewy bit in mine.
The cheese bread and olive oil were great.
Desserts ranged from incredibly greasy to pretty yummy but overall were nothing to write home about.
The service was great, even though at one stage some weird waitress decided to shout through the whole place that she needed one more fork here...and there... Yes A FORK! FORK! Yes, HERE!
So overall a decent place. But nowhere near 5 stars IMHO.
the best steak in London, probably. They have a great tasting menu, which although expensive is a great way to experience some different flavours and a great way to introduce friends to this place if it is their first time. Only issue is that it is expensive for steak...
High end but delicious (it is worth it if you have the cash to splash) beef. Interesting setting, thick curtains, dark lighting, giant chunks of meat displayed on cutting boards… definitely not for the faint hearted.
Actually don’t mind the high price tag because it means I’ll appreciate it more, means people can’t go too often - beef isn’t that eco-friendly!
Wow. This place is fantastic! I’ve been just once and loved it. The menu is great and the quality of the food is even better.
The steak is cooked to perfection and the pancakes are to die for. Not to mention the quality of the service, meals are served quickly and the waiting staff are perfect. Pretty much everything about The Gaucho Grill is perfect.
Definitely worth a visit if you can afford. Which brings me on to the negatives… It’s very expensive!
THis place is fantastic , the service is excellent nothing is too much trouble , the rib eye steak was done to perfection , thoroughly enjoyed our meal ,
The management is clearly running this place like pros as everything is some super efficiently and any issue dealt with immediatly. THe wine list is excellent something to suit all tastes and also has a great selection of beer on tap.
Who doesn’t love this place?
I’m hoping to have my birthday here this year. This place, I too believe is very ‘Sex and the City.’ During the day it’s filled with business lunchers and in the evenings it’s filled with people who appreciate a good, hearty Argentine Steak. The atmosphere here is buzzing, Gaucho is almost always busy and if you’re going in the evening be sure to book. Me and my partner ate between us a selection of Empanada’s each, a selection of cuts of beef for two, with asparagus, spinach, a peppercorn and mushroom sauce and a nice bottle of wine. For desert we had two great whopping slices of Dulce de Leche cheesecake, this cheese cake is out of this world, simply mind blowing, rich, decadent and just the way any true sweet toothed person would love it. Along with the cheese cake we had two Dulce de Leche’s each just to round it off nicely.
We managed to conjure up a one hundred and thirty pound bill, don’t let this scare you, me and my partner are notorious for our excessive eating! Nevertheless the prices at Gaucho are not for the faint hearted, but the food is worth the thrill of the bill!
If Gaucho is a true reflection of how the Argentine’s eat then I need to go to Argentina!
Trendy, classy, sexy and definitely for carnivores!
This is a great place, from when you walk in you are greeted at the door - which is held open for you. The staff are very accomodating and make you feel relaxed and welcome, they even use your name when addressing you. You have plenty of choice and lots of interaction with staff. You get a meat presentation and have the choice of help with the menu and recommendations. Wouldn't recommend for families as i isn't a chidl-frinedly atmosphere...adults only.
