    We arrived at 7:50 for an 8:00 p.m. reservation. We were seated right away. The waiters were very nice, everyone had a smile on his face, and the food was delicious. I actually ordered an Italian dish; cavatelli with sausage and broccoli rabe. It was really very good.

    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.

    Great selection for meat eaters with plenty of vegetarian options, including pastas w/o meat if requested. Exceptional wines including Malbecs, perfect portions of exquisite desserts. From the cheerful valets and welcoming hosts, the service couldn't have been better. Looking forward to returning ASAP. What a find!

    We arrived early so restaurant was quite quiet. New York Strip was sublime, salmon was very tasty but somewhat oversauced; friends had chicken which they enjoyed. Service was very good and they were concerned about getting us out since we had a show to attend. Would definitely go back.

    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.

    My first visit and a good find for business dinners. We ate outside and while on a busy street, the traffic noise was not noticeable. The seating area is spacious with a nice view. The wait staff was attentive and friendly. We all had steaks which were done nicely. Save room for dessert - the crepes with ice cream were great.

    Dined on 6/14/2014
    Restaurant is quite large, offering many different rooms. The food was tasty, but not exceptional. One of my party had to send their food back as it wasn't cooked as well as he requested. The dish I ordered was supposed to come with broccoli rabe -- that's what the menu said, so I was upset when it came out with sauted spinach. When I questioned the waiter, he offered to get me the broccoli rabe. We were worried we'd be charged a side dish fee, but thankfully, we were not. When our party was seated in the main dining room, I noticed 2 large tables set up for large parties next to us. Big mistake. One party was very noisy. We should have asked to be moved. A party of 10 should be in a separate room. They detracted from our enjoyment.

    This was our second visit to Gaucho Grill. As is often the case, we preferred it the first time. We had beef empanadas for the appetizer and they were wonderful. However, our main courses (cowboy steak and grilled shrimp) were good but nothing special. Flan for dessert was excellent as was the sangria.

    This restaurant is one of our favorites and never disappointing. My husband rates their steak above the pricier Westchester steakhouses. My choice, seafood is prepared to perfection and the service is extremely attentive. Wine list is affordable with good selections. We highly recommend this gem.

    For appetizers we had the pear berry salad, the grilled octopus and lobster quesadilla. These were all good - the dressing on the salad was excellent, the lobster quesadilla featured nice chunks of homard and avocado, but the killer was the tender and savory octopus. A special pork shank was large and savory, over fregola, The parillada was a plentiful portion of skirt steak, what I thought was flatiron steak, a thin Italian sausage and a pork filet, piled over baked potato logs. The skirt steak was the best I have ever had. The chimichurri was a bit on the bland side. The loser was seafood risotto, a nice portion of well seasoned rice with strips of chewy calamari, mussels, shrimp and clams but as my wife put it, "nothing special."

    Went on a Wednesday night. Large venue but not even half full. Food came out extremely slowly - waited for drinks, starters, main courses and coffees. Food good, not great, but not worth the long wait. At end of evening "free" valet had long line of people - some waited 30 minutes to get their car. People were irate! Couldn't imagine how that would work on a busy night. Ate there once before and was better - will not be back and would not recommend.

    We had a great meal there. The service was excellent, my wine was delicious and the paella was wonderful. We shared both kinds of paella for main and ordered lots of appetizers. The octopus was so tender and the tilapia ceviche was light and tasty. Loved the feel of the outdoor space. We will be back for sure.
