    It was our first time at this restaurant. It was very well decorated; staff was friendly; stayed closed but did not rush us or intrude, great wine list and the food was delicious. They have two rooms for private parties. They also have valet parking. We enjoyed ourselves so much, I am booking my husband's 50th Birthday here.

    I have eaten at Gaucho Grill twice. On both occasions the menu is yummy (I recommend the Fig and Chorizo appetizer) and presented in a nice way. Salads are creative and the steaks are prepared nicely. The main dining room is on the louder side, so if you are looking for something intimate, this is not the place. If going out with some friends…this is always a good choice.

    This is one of our "go-to" White Plains restaurants. The Argentinian style food is well prepared and of high quality. But, why would a restaurant seeking to attract new clients during Restaurant Week, serve smaller portions and select cheaper menu items to put on the reduced price menu. No way to attract new customers. We came with a couple who had never eaten there before and they said they would not return again. Bad business decision.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 11/12/2014
    - the private room where we were seated this time is great for parties but a bit claustrophobic and noisy for private tables. Plus you lose the open and convivial atmosphere of the restaurant - for the second time, every wine tried to order was out of stock. Please update the wine list. Our waiter was frustrated as were we. - instead of restaurant week menus we were all given (except for one person) a menu from a private event. It took two tries by the waiter and a conversation with the hostess to get the right menus. Again, frustrating, as it delayed our ordering by about 15 minutes. But the food was worth the wait.

    The food was excellent, would have liked to see more meat entrees that speak to its Argentinian heritage, such as a grill platter of various items. The wait staff needs to be more attentive so that diners do not have to search for them.

    Gaucho Grill bills itself as an Argentinian Steakhouse, but in fact it is much more. A variety of dishes of all types fills their huge menu, leaving no palate unsatisfied. Seasonal salads, soups and other appetizers prepare you for well executed main dishes of meat, fish, or poultry. Innovative side dishes including a warm quinoa mix, plantains, and others complement your meal perfectly. The pumpkin gelato was flavorful without being overly sweet.

    My blackened tuna dish was excellent, but my husband was unhappy with his Churrasco steak because the meat was only fair and the only accompanying vegetable, potato, was dry, hard, and cold. The presentation of his dish was disappointing. The Malbec wine was excellent.

    This is my 5th time at this restaurant and I have enjoyed each visit. Three times I have just gone to the bar and had the grilled octopus and a drink and twice for dinner. I missed the veal dish that they used to serve but I did enjoy my meal. Luis the waiter was exceptional, with a great personality and he knows how to treat his customers!!!!!

    I have eaten here 3x. My most recent time, I experienced something horrible and sad. I ordered the pork chop valdostana for $28. When they brought it to me, it did not look like a pork chop, but I figured, what the heck, maybe the chef got creative. As I took my first bites, I realized it was NOT a pork chop at all. It was some sort of PROCESSED, FAKE concoction. It had a spongy consistency, like it came frozen from a vendor and all they had to do was heat it up. It had a bone sticking out of a side, even a pork bone, but a chicken bone put there to "FOOL" the eater. I was shocked. Not what you expect from a "real" restaurant. It's sad an otherwise nice restaurant would stoop so low just to increase their profits. How dare they!

    great diner, we enjoyed the quality of the meats, such as the churrasco and hanger steak, and the desserts. Service was friendly and prompt. The porter house was very tender but my husband did not enjoy the seasoning and the meat had come apart in 2 pieces during grilling, not thick enough. He was very pleased by his surprise BDay cake, a delicious tres leches, on the house, very nice touch. I shared a ceviche and churrasco with my 10y old daughter which was enough for both of us. A few things could be improved :the side mash potatoes was cold, and not a great combination with the lobster, the bread is below par. Our favorite wine, Chateauneuf du pape Mt Redon was not in stock but we had a nice Chilean pinot noir instead. We will be back.

    I love Gaucho's menu. When the plates arrive, they never disappoint in presentation, nor in taste! Every dish at our table was gobbled up. The servers are kind. Their speed was not as quick as usual, but we weren't in any bit of a rush so it was fine. I always come back to gaucho and highly recommend it!

    The ambiance was lovely and the wine list impressive. Unfortunately, this restaurant is severely understaffed, both in the kitchen and with respect to wait staff. The lamb chops ordered "rare to medium rare" arrived well done, and the potatoes did not arrive until 25 minutes after the overcooked meat was served. Waiter seemed familiar with these delays. We witnessed one middle-aged waiter literally running back and forth to the kitchen. It is a shame that the management does not invest in the proper ratio of wait staff to patrons. We will not be returning, although we were offered a free coffee for the inconvenience of waiting over an hour to eat lamb without the accompanying side dish. Not what a $200 meal should be.

    Food is good, but expensive. Service good, but should be better for the price. Disappointed about the noise level, especially after we specifically asked for the back room to celebrate our anniversary. We were told that it wasn't busy enough for them to use the back room. Clearly, it was packed, as the noise level was deafening! Not very romantic, as we had hoped and been told. Incidentally, the maitre d even wished us a happy anniversary, both entering and leaving the restaurant, yet nothing at all was done by the restaurant -- no candle, dessert, nothing. Unfortunate.

    We have been here several times before and enjoyed it. On our most recent visit things were different. Ordered caipirinhas, got drinks that had sour mix in them. That is just plain wrong. Table was crooked and leaning to one side, waiter tried to fix it and things nearly slid off the table. Ordered the grilled shrimp. For $32 I would expect more than 4 not so big shrimp that were a bit overcooked and bland. I received an entire head of broccoli rabe with it which was a bit unappetizing. Maybe their best staff were all away for the holiday. Not sure if I'll be back again, will have to think about it. On the positive side, staff are very friendly and the food we had on previous visits was very good.
