    This was the 3 rd time I have been here during a hot day outside. In ea case they say " air conditioning isn't working properly" ...clearly they don't have any and lied to me . I have come to the conclusion that you should not dine here if it is hot outside. They DONT HAVE ANY AIRCONDITIONING. . TALk TO THE LANDLORD and get the AC working. I won't be back

    This is the second year in a row that we celebrate our anniversary at Gaucho Grill. The food is always amazing! The Pollo Deshuesado al Ajo is chicken smothered in onions and garlic and it was scrumptious! It was a very busy night and so the servers were a bit busy. My colleagues and I have our Christmas and End of the Year luncheons here every years because there is always something for everyone on the menu.

    We tried it out because of a Groupon. The atmosphere was like a restaurant you'd find in the St. Louis Airport. The service extremely friendly, the food less than mediocre. After it was over and we'd been forced to spend a lot of money I decided I'm never buying another Groupon again!

    We were a group that arrived within 15 minutes of each other. The waiter did not take our order for quite a while, at least 30 min and the food did not come until 30 min after that. I know because I had to go put more money in the 1 hour parking meter just as my food arrived. The restaurant was not that busy so I don't understand why the service was so slow. To top it off, we HAD to pay 18% gratuity because we were a group of 6.

    I've been driving by GG for years, and finally got a chance to step, and I must say, I loved it. I ordered the short ribs, and they were incredibly tender, spicy and very flavorful. the sauteed spinach was just heavy enough to have great texture, and I order black beans, which came in a separate little mini pot. this kept them nice and moist. Our $26 Malbec was awesome, and the whole dinner just came together perfectly. My only complaint was that the waiter was a little slow, but then I realized this was for the better, sit back, relax, and enjoy our window front seat

    Dinner in Brentwood was my first time at a Gaucho Grill in years. The service and ambiance were less than I had remembered. The food is very basic; it earns three stars because it is well-priced. In a pinch we would go back, but there are much better feeds available.

    We got empanadas (very good), chicken (good but a little dry), and steak (lots of fat, lack of flavor). The more expensive the dishes, the most disappointing they were! This place used to be better in my opnion. Will give it another shot, but it could be the last if they keep disappointing.

    This is the fifth time my wife and I go to Gaucho Grill, and it's always a very pleasant experience. The steaks are great, and if you find the right table, the noise is not bad. We usually take a table at the very back, and find enough privacy to enjoy our evening. One (small) negative experience from last time we went though: I had bought their coupons $15 for $30, and since it didn't say how many I could buy I bought two. Turns out I can only use one per visit. It didn't mention this anywhere on the website.

    Gaucho Brentwood, is on one of the quaintest corners of the neighborhood. With twinkling white lights and large windows that look out towards the beautiful trees, it is truly at one of the best locations in Brentwood. The restaurant which features deep red walls and impressive stone arches, reminds me of Spain, Italy or even Buenos Aires. The wine list is hand selected by the owner with Argentine and California boutique wines. My friend and I enjoyed a salad and their delicious appetizer mushrooms. Which I highly recommend. I love their Chimichurri sauce. Its my favorite in L.A. thus far! My dinner was very good. The home made mash potatoes and grilled veggies are delish! The server was very helpful and their home made dessert YUMMY!

    Not sure how to rate this one. The food was OK. The server was friendly, attentive and efficient. But the kitchen is not. Very long wait for the main course, and it was not a packed night. The appetizer arrived quickly, so it's clearly a kitchen organization issue.

    First time and last. Food (parrillada/plato mixto) pretty bland and lack-luster. Perhaps this is what comida Argentina is supposed to taste like. Parking is awful. Not much of a place to sit while waiting to be seated and patrons end up clogging up one of the main walkways to stand and wait for a table. Glad we had reservations. Seemed that a few food servers might have been missing because our server told us that he was really busy and would try to bring some more bread when we asked for more, the busboy ended up bring us more so server must have told him. Server might have wowed us had he not been overwhelmed, didn't even ask us if we wanted to see the dessert menu. Place might be considered romantic if not so noisy.

    Gaucho Grill is solid but nothing too special. The Argentine cuisine definitely seems less like your experience in Argentina and more like am attempt to bank on the nostalgia of a visit to BA from years ago with food that is good enough to remind you that you should return.

    I have been to Gaucho Grill many times, and the food is ALWAYS SO delicious! We were a group of 4 ladies and every single one loved their food. The steaks were grilled to their exact order. My only concern is that the food took a bit of long time to arrive, but it could be because the group wanted their steaks to be well done and medium. Aside from that, it was a wonderful experience and we will be returning very soon.
