Excellent food and service
Every week, my wife and I go on a 'date night', and this week I really felt like a good steak. The food at Gaucho Grill is excellent, and it is not as pricy as some of the other good steak places in LA. The service is also really good. There are two things to notice though: it can get pretty crowded on a Saturday night, and therefore a bit noisy, and the wait for the steaks is a bit longer than I am used to (about 15-20 mins I'd say), but other than that, it was a wonderful experience. I'll be going back there for sure!

We went here for Mother's
We went here for Mother's Day. There was a special for $28 we got an appetizer (shrimp brucchetta or empanada) a main course 9 salmon with a white wine caper sauce) and a dessert ( lava cake or panqueques with a carmel sauce). Our waitress who was a mother to be was very nice and the service was prompt. They also offered all you can drink mimosas or sangria for $9. This was a restaurant we had been to before in Santa Monica so we knew it would be delicious and it was!

There are only two Gaucho
There are only two Gaucho Grill locations left, which is so disappointing because their food is so amazing and tasty! A group of 5 of us went here after work to celebrate a co-workers borthday and the service was exceptional and the food is very yummy!

Great food and experience
Our party of 6 tried Gaucho Grill for the first time and we were really pleased. Our table was ready when we arrived, the service was very good and the food was full of flavor and well prepared. We would definitely return! We also got lucky with parking - not easy in Brentwood.

Always predictably all-around good!
We've been going here for over 15 years both lunch and dinner. Never ever had a mediocre meal. Always consistently good. Great prices for both food and wine; easy going, friendly and most accommodating servers.

Continues to innovate
This restaurant has continued to improve. The menu choices are very good and they will allow you to choose or substitute side dishes to customize your order. They have continued to decorate. It is consistently very good and a great value.

We love our waitress! She was very friendly and took good care of us.
We went there for lunch. The restaurant normally has a lunch menu with many good choices, but we had a restaurant.com certificate and were told that we had to order everything from the dinner menu instead. It turned out it was quite an expensive lunch even with the certificate.
Nevertheless, food was great, service was excellent, and we had a good time!

Our waiter was knowledgable about the menu. We sat for quite a long time to talk (the restaurant was empty and no one was waiting for tables). Our tea and water were graciously refilled the entire time.

Great Food/Attentive Staff
My husband and I chose this restaurant for our first wedding anniversary. When we arrived, we were seated at a cozy table but unfortunately it was next to a section with two large parties and several screaming children. We asked to be re-seated, and the staff was extremely accommodating, moving us to a prime window seat. The waitress was attentive and very helpful, although she was extremely busy. I believe she was the only waitress for the entire restaurant, although there were other staff helping to serve. We ordered the sampler appetizer plate, which was delicious. For our main course we shared the Gaucho Mixed Grill, which was incredible. There was so much food that we had dinner for the following evening as well!

Fun for a change
The food was very good and the choice of some Argentinian food was really fun. The music was too loud making conversation a little difficult, but the restaurant had an excellent atmosphere and was very good for lunch.

I've been before for a DIne
I've been before for a DIne La menu. Returned with a group of friends. Shared a bottle of wine. All agreed, great food, ambiance and service.

My first Argentine food
What a great place! I was afraid there would be nothing for me but we went on the dine-LA program. My husband and friend really like the seafood appetiser and the steak dinner. The restaurant was accomodating in leaving off anything with garlic for my husband. Our friend likes to eat healthy and really was pleased. The desserts are fabulous. We would go again.
Go early for happy hour 4-6pm.
Parking in Brentwood is impossible.

Good food, slow service
Came here during dineLA but ordered their lunch special instead since the skirt steak chimichurri was the same price, and it comes with a soft drink. We were greeted and seated immediately at our reserved table, spent about 5-10 minutes to decide on what to order, and waited close to 40 minutes for our food. We both got the steak with 2 side orders, the steak was tender and juicy, the vegetables were good too. However, there was only one waitress for the 10 tables on our side, and only one chef working in the kitchen. It would have been more enjoyable if it weren't so slow, especially when parking is at $2/hour and the max was one hour; my coworker had to rush out and put more coins in the meter.

Good food, slow service
The decor was lovely and the food was good. our service was a little slow, which was odd since there were not many other diners.

Dependable and good
It's one of our default restaurants. Always good, service varies but never really bad. I use open table to make sure we don't have to wait.

A nice little place
If we lived in LA, it would be one of our favorites.
Only the 80's music seemed out of place. We expected tango. Had there been, we would have danced.

Food was good and authentic
Went with my husband and children to celebrate my 14 year old daughter's birthday. Free parking was available at the First Federal Bank next door. We had reservations on a Saturday at 6PM through Opentable.com. We were seated immediately. They had a limited kids menu from which we were able to order a modified noodle dish for my 5 year old. My teenager had the calamari appetizer and the ribeye with portobello mushrooms. Both were excellent, although the steak was more medium rare than rare. My husband ordered the sampler platter and we both had the short ribs. The platter was good, although the mushrooms were a bit heavy on garlic. The short ribs were excellent. Some items missing from order but minor inconvenience. Good, reliable food.

Love the food! The Entrana al la Parilla is tasty! Grilled onions, mashed potatoes, perfectly steamed broccoli.....We will be back. Perfect for a romantic night out.

Yummy and garlicky!
The house salad and vinaigrette was generous, fresh and delicious. I ate the Pollo Deshuesado al Ajo that was absolutely smothered in onions, garlic and tomatoes and it was AWESOME! The broccoli was steamed perfectly and the roasted vegetables were delicious. The chocolate lava cake dessert was perfect for two people to share without having to feel guilty about eating a decadent dessert. I will return again!

Nice meal, great location
This "neighborhood gem" in Brentwood has delicious food and good service. Nothing to complain about except that they said they didn't see my open table reservation, despite the fact that I showed it to them on my phone. Oh well...they gave me a table anyway.

Really enjoyed the food!
Everything was great from the Rib Eye with Portobello & Chicken w/Dijon sauce, to the wine.
