    Celebrated my 50th, our reservation was punctual. The Sangria, was perfect. The appetizers of mushroom, chorizo & empanadas left our palletes wanting more they were delicious. Recommend the chicken and beef empanadas. The main course was the parillada topped off with the best host, Don Enrique and his wonderful staff that made my day oh so special.

    Took my fiance to celebrate a special day for us. I went by the open table reviews and I'm glad they were not wrong. went with the special they had on their menu and everything we had was delicious. From the appetizers to the dessert nothing was wrong with the meal. The drinks were good, the service was excellent. I had the steak which was a few dollars more but it was worth every penny. My fiance had the flank steak with chimi churi and that was good also. the portions were perfect, we came out of the place to satisfied that we are definitely going back when we get the chance. I am very surprised that for a first time visit I do not have anything pick at.

    Nice place, their steaks are perfectly cooked, but have no flavor along with everything else that we ordered. Great service, but we will not be returning. Quite a disappointment. The ambiance is nice, servers are very , just the food is lacking flavor.

    The food and service was great as usual. One glitch, we went for the Capirihnas and the bar was out of Cachaca. What???!!! We were extremely disappointed, that's why we went there! Our server went out of his way and got a bottle from the restaurant next door which had a small amount left. So although we got the drinks afterall they seemed a little lighthanded with alcohol being there wasn't much left in the bottle to begin with.

    Their service was very good, but I found the food to be O.K. We ordered the DineLA option with Empanadas, chimichurri skirt steak and both desserts. Empanadas were actually tasty but we just get one per person so it was a bit unsatisfying in terms of portions. But it's understandable as it is an appetizer. The Chimichurri skirt steak was the main and was the one that was bland. It didn't have much taste and so did the potatoes. The meat itself was tender and juicy, but I had wished there was more flavor to it. The desserts were delicious but it was a bit too rich for my taste. I am sure others may find it great.

    Everything about this restaurant is good. The decor could be updated to look a little more current but the service was great and the food was savory and delicious. You've got to try the empanadas, which are just flaky and tasty. Don't expect super upscale cuisine but it's a good place to hang out and enjoy a meal.

    I was really looking forward to dining here as my boyfriend and I were celebrating our anniversary. We got there earlier and they accommodated us to a nice booth. After ordering drinks, we ordered appetizers and entrees. However, our entrees got to the table first. He barely apologized for his mistake and we got our appetizers after we had finished our entrees. Then we waited about 40 minutes to get the check. We had to ask someone else what had happened to our server? The other server said oh he is our manager and is doing work in the office. I was just stunned because for that whole time we were just abandoned at our table and wanted to just get out of there. Horrible.

    It was am interesting experience. The food was the saving grace, but it took forever to get it ordered. The drinks needed to be taken by a separate person (first time that's happened to me). Had to flag down someone for each drink refill. Lots of servers standing around, but still couldn't get them over to serve. Food was good, the chicken skewer in the paradilla (sp?) seemed suspect, so only had one piece. Everyone else in the party enjoyed their steaks. Empanadas were good.

    We went on Saturday Night and arrived to a mostly empty restaurant but as the night progressed it became a very happening busy spot. The food was amazing, and had very good portions as well but I have to say the service was not good. We were passed around from server to server. We had three servers in the evening, and we were very much forgotten about throughout the evening. The good thing was that we were not in a hurry or else it might have been a disaster. We might forgive the service because they did have 5 large parties but still don't make us feel like we don't exist. We might be tempted to go back because of the food, but it must be a on night when we have hours to spend.

    We made a reservation for 2 on a Friday at 7:30 for 8:45 and had no trouble getting a table. The server was prompt and super friendly and polite. The food was delicious. I had the pollo al ajo (garlic chicken) and the sauce and veggies it comes with were perfectly paired and cooked to perfection. My guy had the blue cheese burger and loved it. Even the cappuccino after the meal tasted great! In case it makes a difference, I'll point out that I'm Argentinian, and the food here always reminds me of home. Almost forgot, they have a performer playing a guitar which makes for a great ambiance as well.

    We went to Gaucho Grill for my sons 19th birthday and we will not be going back to this restaurant ever!! The service was terrible we asked for bread several times finally got it when we were half way finished with our dinner. I had to get up from the table twice to ask for our server to come to our table. My son had to send back his steak that he ordered medium rare because it was over cooked. They took 15 minutes to bring him out a new one which was raw completely cold in the middle. I have no idea what they were doing for the 15 minutes because it could have only been on the grill for 30 seconds!!! When we asked that it be taken off the check the server argued with us. It was a waste of time and money!!!

    We were going to see the Queen Mary (what a bust that turned out to be, but that is another review) and decided to eat before going there. Unfortunately, we were the only ones at the restaurant. Not sure if it was the time and the lunch rush was over or it is slow there during lunch time anyway. The restaurant is located in the downtown area and it did not look like a busy downtown anyway. In fact, the restaurant next door was closed for lunch and only opens for dinner. However, we were five and everyone had a great lunch. The carrot soup was outstanding and the meat was really good. I definitely recommend it.
