El Gaucho - Bellevue
good lunch but not greatI had the Rib chop ($66 rib eye steak), and wife had a $18 crab sandwich with crab salad. Hers was excellent, mine just good but not great. My steak was charred on the outside, which gave each bite a burnt taste. They've made it better before, but I didn't have time for them to redo this time as I was on my lunch break.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMEl Gaucho - "Best Place To Dine!"Excellent atmosphere, excellent service, and above all - excellent food...what else is there to say...
Your staff do really care to your customers. Though it was quite expensive, it was definitely worth it. I will be dining again in your restaurant in the coming future.
I have been a regular customer in your restaurant (Seattle downtown) branch during the 1980's and do missed your place. I surely do missed your place.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMElegant and deliciousBeautiful ambiance, entertaining staff, professionalism at its best. Table side showmanship with flaming entrees and desserts super fun. And of course the food is just fabulous. Pretty expensive by conventional standards, but well worth it for special occasions or just a treat for yourself. We'll be back.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMspecial occasion diningEl Gaucho Bellevue is easy to walk to if you live in Downtown Bellevue.
The service was outstanding lots of team work being used such as if our waiter was pre-occupied at another table his co-worker would check in with us fill our drinks, bring more bread, or just overall check in with us. There wasn't a time where we weren't helped.
The food was amazing I highly recommend getting anything with Dungeness crab was the best I have had in years!
The most amazing thing they did was after our dinner they provide a plate of special cheeses, fruit and crackers.
Also, was amazing as this was a special occasion for my husbands birthday and they provided a complementary desert that was out of this world!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Fare for FoodiesTruly a wonderful dining experience.

My wife and our friend had the filet and I had the New York Bone in. We were all pleased, We had the lobster mashed potatoes and the broccoli. We really couldn't tell if there were any pieces of lobster in the mashed potatoes and the expected seafood flavour was mild. The bread was very good. My wife and our friend enjoyed two great desserts. Our server brought us some fruit on the house - a very nice touch.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
