We waited a bit to be seated. The flower vase tipped over. Fortunately the table cloth absorbed the spill. However, staff made it right. Great food, fun place.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMNew ExperienceYour service was impecable and the food was delicious. My husband ordered the Steak El Gaucho for $56 and wasn't impressed with the size but was cooked well. Felt a little uncomfortable with the class of the restaurant, not used to expensive dining I guess.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Evening at El Gaucho!!A fantastic dining experience!! All the food selections were fantastic, especially the Steak El Gaucho. The wines, the service, the desert offered for my wifes’ birthday, the ambience---all were incredible!!!
It has been a while since we have been there, but will not be long before we return! El Gaucho has a very unique feeling when you walk in the door—it gives you the feeling, you have just stepped into another world---- We love it!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMBest steaks we've ever had.
ServiceBest steaks we've ever had.
Service was outstanding.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth the moneyEl Gaucho is a bit expensive for your everyday dining but for special occasions it is well worth the money. The entire staff was very attentive without being intusive. The wine was excellent and the meal was beyond words.....I can still taste it!5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMthe prices are high but thethe prices are high but the food is excellent. The restaurant seems extremely dark when you first step in. but the lighting and the live piano make for great ambiance. They made the Caesar salad from scratch at the table. The waitress explained what each ingredient added to the flavor as she made it. It was the best Caesar I've ever had. The New York steak was top notch and they helped me pair it with a great Merlot. The 1978 Tawny port I had with desert was the best port I've ever had and finished off the meal perfectly.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, great service!Wonderful dining experience as always - thank you so much for such a great late night dinner. You have the most absolutely amazing steaks!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service was excellentThe service was excellent but we were not wowed by our food. It was good, but the steaks were overcooked. Their flavor and the meal as a whole was good, but being overdone was a disappointment. Our server told us that Medium would be a red center and there was barely detectable pink in any of the 3 steaks. We just expected more from El Gaucho.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMLet me start off by sayingLet me start off by saying that it was a very memorable evening, we were celebrating a very special occasion, and dining here made it just that much more special. Service was impeccable, ambiance was pleasurable. The food was delicious, although I thought it was a little too cold for my personal palate. I do highly recommend one of the most enjoyable dining experiences at El Gaucho Tacoma.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing as usual..The attention and care El Gaucho gives to ensure your meal and evening are perfect are second to none. I don't normally get excited to go out to dinner- an El Gaucho visit is the exception.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent service and foodExcellent service and food right up there with mortons and ruth chris4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMExceptional steaks - greatExceptional steaks - great service, wonderful ambience. A great dining experience all the way around...4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial RestaurantThis is an absolutely beautiful restaurant. You walk up to a plain brick building and it's like OZ when you open the door. The ambiance is amazing; the piano was perfect and he played forever. As you would expect the steaks are top quality, salads are served tableside (Ceasar). My husband had Oysters Rockefeller and felt they were one of the best he's sampled. In addition, the service is perfect. This is a special restaurant to go when you want to celebrate a special night.
Unfortunately, you will pay for all of this perfection. Hence, if you're on a budget I would recommend checking their menu on line. Note: They do NOT comp your $6 valet parking ($10 w/tip). That's a bit of a slap!4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a great Easter dinner.We had a great Easter dinner. The place was dark on a sunny day. It would have been nicer to have some sun in the place.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful ambience and memorableWonderful ambience and memorable cuisine that directly reflects the care and service lent by the staff. The enticing menu may be $$$$ for some but the first taste reminds you why you pay for such table side prepared meals. This establishment reminds me of greater inner city midwest/ east coast steak houses but with better service. As a self taught cook I enjoy finer foods prepared by myself at home than most enjoy at restaraunts.That being said I would highly recommend El Gaucho for any event or dining experience. The pianist is so enjoyable......great voice and fun songs!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat spot for a special occasion,Great spot for a special occasion, nice and cozy. Service is excellent and food to match. Nice piano scence when playing.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent value for a highExcellent value for a high end establishment, wait staff was attentive and knowledgeable on the menu. The Black Truffle Mushroom Soup was a meal in its self. The atmosphere was conducive for an evening of fine dining.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMtreat yourselfFood was excellent, from the starter to the finish. Nice touches, i.e. cold fruit and cheese instead of dessert. Wonderful wait staff, felt pampered.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMservice par excellence!It's a wonderful thing to experience great customer service when you have been giving it yourself for many years.
