We really enjoyed the food
We really enjoyed the food and service at the Gaucho Grill. We were traveling with our kids from out of town, and they did not make us feel like second-class customers. They even had a kid's menu with the same quality of food as the adult menu. The Parillada was outstanding. Tables were a little close together, but that is my only suggestion for improvement.

Food was very good and portions were just right. Service was a bit slow but we weren't in a hurry so not a big problem.

Loved everything about this
Loved everything about this restaurant - the food, the service, and the ambiance. I ordered a steak and my boyfriend had chicken and both were cooked very well. The interior of the restaurant was very welcoming and romantic. There was also outdoor seating and whether you choose to sit inside or outside, it's a really great date spot. The staff was very helpful and friendly and repeatedly asked us if they could be of any service. We had a great night and would definitely recommend Gaucho Grill to others.

I drive from Northern California to Long Beach and dunes at Gaucho for the first time. It was such a pleasant experience from the minute we got there, during our meal, and even after we had paid, the staff was amazing. I truly recommend this place to anyone looking to try something new and fun.

Awesome Food & Even Better Service
My wife and I went for our anniversary and planned to sit at a table, but we first went to the bar for a drink and ending up enjoying interacting with the bartenders and other staff, that we ended up eating at the bar! We had a couple of great steaks with chimichurri and a couple Mojitos made ro perfection. We will definitely go back there soon!

A bit of Argentina
My husband and I have eaten there twice and enjoyed both of our meals. We enjoy sitting outside where we can watch the people stroll by and enjoy a leisurely dinner. We have not eaten inside, but it seems a bit on the dark side. The food is quite good and reasonably priced. I like the grilled short ribs and my husband likes the chicken dishes. You get a choice of side dishes with your meal - everything from garlic mashed potatoes to sauteed spinach. The vegetables are crisp and not over cooked (which is a biggie for me). The service has been very good, and I would recommend this place.

Had steak and salad. The steak was VERY good. I would definitely recommend the NY strip... But the Sangria Blanca was the highlight! Very good!

Loved it. Worth the hour drive. We WILL be back....
5/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great casual place
Outside dining was nice. Cool tables and chairs. It is noisy though b/c it's right on pine street. Good people watching. Inside is much more romantic if that's what you are looking for. I would go back.

Gaucho's Great Stop
We visited this restaurant for a late Sunday lunch. We both had steaks and they were excellent. The portions were good and the service was very good. My waiter had me taste my wine before purchase, something that isn't done as much today. My steak was excellent no need for sauce and it was light, didn't bloat me as most steaks do after eating. A quality choice of meat. I recommend eating there especially late evening. Argentine atmosphere was great also.

For those of you unfamiliar with Central or South American chimichuri here's the place to try it. If you are a displaced South American you can get MATE here as well. I went for the beef Entrana which is a big piece of skirt of flank steak. The appetizer$6.95 of Sauteed Mushrooms with garlic and white wine pleased my friends who hate the drowned in butter version. I highly recommend this place if you are not in a hurry and want to add new culinary flavors to your palate.
6/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
a change of pace......
In the heart of the busy Pine street scene in Long Beach...features a variety of meats and tapas cooked to perfection. Noted for a variety of Argentinian Malbec wines. Patio dining available as well as a distinctive interior. Smallish place....excellent for parties of 2-6 who don't want to shout over the next table as is so common in other places. Non-rushed 'European' style service.
A good find

We booked this restaurant
We booked this restaurant not really knowing what to expect. When we got there it was beyond our expectations!! The food and service was great! We couldn't have asked for a better place to have our dinner party! I highly recommend checking this place out you will not be disappointed!
6/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was my second visit to Gaucho Grill. After my wonderful experience the first time I just had to come back with my Mother. As expected the second time just even more spectacular with great food and service.
6/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
James our server was one of
James our server was one of the best servers. The grilled 1/2 chicken was just wonderful. My hubby had the margarita, he said it was one of the best.
6/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Took my boyfriend here as a surprise dinner out. Wanted an authentic Argentinian experience that would remind him of his mother's cooking. This was a success! The food and ambiance passed with flying colors. Service was sincere without interrupting our romantic evening. Lovely addition of an acoustic guitar player that Friday night. Highly recommend this place and plan to come back again.

Fantastic food. Slow service
Fantastic food. Slow service (had to ask where our appetizers were, when we were asked to order main course)

We went on a Tuesday so parking was very easy and the restaurant was not crowded at all. It was a really nice atmosphere and the staff were great! I would definitely go back.
7/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
We order the skirt steak each and every time we dine here and are never disappointed! Have the panqueque for dessert...dulce de leche lovers, beware!
7/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Restaurant participated in DINE LA, and so we went there. The good was good. We really enjoyed it. We sat outside and it was fun to watch passerby as we had dinner.
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was good. A little pricey for the type of food, but considering it is on Pine St. I guess that's expected. The decor was nice and the outdoor seating is very nice.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
We enjoyed our girls night out, empanadas that melt in your mouth; skirt steak with chimichurri sauce well seasoned and caramel crepe perfect. Worth the splurge, will return again.
7/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Went for the first time with some friends for DineLA. Fair price for menu and was a very good experience. Will return for sure.
7/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our 5yo and 2 to likes the skirt steak chimichurri. Will return!
7/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a Hit
I have been to Gaucho Grill four times now, and have brought business associates each time. I have never been disappointed. The food is the closest I have found to the asado i ate when living in Argentina. The staff is as good as any I have seen and the ambiance is true Argentina. If you don't know what Argentine dining is supposed to be like, just think of a fine steakhouse with some personality and you have The Gaucho Grill.
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
I had been reveiwing all of yelps comments and I was hesitant to try, but I'm very glad I did. I'm someone that is huge on customer service and I was truly impressed by the host, waiter and the manager. The outdoor seating is what I love. The food was great and the waiter(s) made sure to always come and check on us. It was very packed the day I went and it never seemed like it was a problem to get good service. Two thumbs up for Gaucho Grill and the workers!!!!

decent argentinian place
not bad at all, the skirt steak was better than the lomo. paid In one of the city lots, no validation.
8/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
I was not quite sure what to expect. I had looked them up online and reviewed the menu however this was my first time eating Argentina food. There was a group of 10 and we were seating immediately. There is a great patio and the ambiance inside is fantastic. it is very old world looking, cozy and romantic. The food was amazing. From the empanadas to the lunch specials everything was fantastic. The staff was very attentive and the food is very reasonably priced for the portion size and quality. I will defiantly be returning with my husband for a nice romantic dinner!

Relaxed, comfortable indoor
Relaxed, comfortable indoor dining as well as substantial outdoor area. NIce selection of plates. My chicken dish was very tasty and my hubbie enjoyed his lamb dish. Well stocked bar and interesting selection of sangria style wines.

Fri nite dinner. I'd been to Gaucho Grill once before for a lunch and had a steak with the incredible chimchurri sauce. I had to ask the waiter what it was because the descriptions had changed and there was no mention of the chimchurri sauce being served with any of the steaks. He suggested Entrana a la parrilla (skirt steak) which is grilled with the sauce, but he gladly brought a side dip of the chimchurri. The steak (medium rare) was melt in your mouth tender, the spinach was lightly seasoned with minced garlic and the rice complemented the meat well. Ate outside and could hear the live guitar player inside. Nice ambience, nice people watching from the patio. Longer than normal wait for the meal to arrive, but attentive service after.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food and right in the heart of downtown. Can't wait to come back. I would recommend this place to my friends and family.
9/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love the appetizers
This is the second time I have been here. Both times I have loved the different appetizers we tried, tasty!!! The steak I had this time was good, but I hoped it would be better since it was a dish they recommended. The service was excellent and it was beautiful sitting outside (with the heater on :)). They give you a good amount of food, both times I took home leftovers.

My wife and were celebrating my birthday down in Long Beach. We stayed in the Westin and walked to the Gaucho Grill. We had an 8:15 reservation. The ambiance was great and reminded me of the time I spent in Villa Reynolds Argentina. The food was great and authentic. The guitarist at the bar set the mood perfectly. Overall we had a vreat time
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food and location
The food is great, stronly recommend the Lamb dish and the Rib eye dish. They were so flavorful. Side dishes were great too. Calamari was delightful.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great skirt steak
A great dinning experience for the right price. I had the skirt steak dish with grilled zucchini and it was amazing. What I like most about this restaurant is the price. The taste is high end without breaking your wallet. Our server William was also great and he made sure to meet our ever request.
10/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
The best on the block!
My 11 yr old is really picky about food and she loved everything! We will return no doubt.
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Estuvo buenisimo el lugar y la comida eran las 3 pm de un sabado cuando fui y vi solo 2 meseros habia gente que los llamaba pero no se veian, tienen que colocarse o pararse en un lugar visible donde el cliente los pueda ver..pero de ahi, todo perfecto...
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our waitress was not informed, and she didn't seem that attentive.
11/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
This was great! We actually were exploring for a Spanish class for our son and found a Gem! Excellent food and service. Beautiful ambiance with Argentine décor, music, and outdoor patio with couch/chair seating. Service superb and meats with grilled veggies outstanding with great value. We go to Flemings and Ruth's Chris often; men are selective on meats and this met/surpassed! Try it you will not be disappointed!
11/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
I went with a group of 5 and we had a fabulous night out. The food was delicious all around and the service was wonderful. Just the right amount of attentiveness without being too present. We all loved it!

Stake out the Steak
Gaucho Grill has a nice ambiance, good service and great steaks. We both had the New York Strip steaks - cooked perfectly to order - I got mine medium rare. It was covered in dark delicious mushroom sauce and I had mashed potatoes and a small salad as my choice of sides. We did order the calamari appetizer which was good - did have to ask for a bit more dipping sauce but that came quickly. The white sangria is made in house and is a special treat.

Amazing Birthday dinner.
I was here for my bday on Saturday Nov. 30th and all I have to say is:
The services, food and place was outstanding!
There is not a better place to celebrate your bday then Gaucho Grill.
