    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.

    This fancy pricy restaurant served massive proportions of poorly prepared food. The Gaucho steak sandwich was literally 6" high. The only way to eat it was to take it all apart. The steak was very tough. The fries were big and soggy.

    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.

    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.

    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."
