Sad. Used to be great dining experience. Service was slow, and our food was not only unremarkable, it was cold.
I did like the Toasted Coconut Martini.
Food was delicious
The best steak I've ever had. Great service.
Our service was exceptional, the waitress was great. We took our two high school age grandchildren, very nice evening.
We reserved via OpenTable for our anniversary. Our table was ready when we got there. The service was great, and so was the food. They added a number of special touches to make our date special. I would definitely be open to going there again.
The ny peppercorn steak was delicious. The rack of lamb itself was prepared the right way although a little on the salty side for the demi glace
Great atmosphere and very romantic. Food was great and the cherries jubilee was so yummy. Loved the flambe style
As always, great.
Had a great time. Food tasted good. Lots of tableside menu options. Service was excellent. Flaming sword of steak was cool.
Well staffed and great service. Steaks were amazing. Highly recommend the crap cakes off the appetizer menus, and the brussel sprouts off the sides menu.
A restaurant to impress! The service was top notch and the ambiance of a vital, busy, important steak house was a success. My date and I shared a very nice overpriced bottle of Turley Zin, a way over priced table side prepared Cesar salad ($30.00 for the two of us) the show/preparation was fun but the salad is a very basic Cesar, an 18oz bone in New York ($74.00) which was cooked and presented perfectly and roasted Brussel sprouts. 20% percent gratuity is not optional and was worth it. So I guess if you are on of those lucky ones with unlimited funds, a company expense account or you really want to impress someone, this is the spot. But as far as value, I would look elsewhere.
Love the restaurant, love the food, love the service but do not like the mandatory 20% service charge.
The service charge model is very confusing. It made me think that I was being charged a 20% gratuity and could tip over that if I wanted and made no mention at all that the servers get 15% commission. The result is that I thought that I was tipping my excellent server 30% and then I thought I had stiffed him and finally, after searching for and reading a long blog entry about the service policy, realized that he got 25%. WAY too much confusion and tainted my experience a bit.
Not impressed. Way too crowded. Waiter put a moving table they use to prep food right behind my husbands chair. When we asked if it could be moved they said they had no where else for it. Wine glasses were dirty and food options were limited. For the price, not worth it.
Amazing service and delicious meals as always. My husband really felt special for his birthday dinner!
Great service and food! Can’t wait to go back.
I have been to El Gaucho several times for both business and special events. My experiences have always been WONDERFUL. The food, service and ambience are exceptional and I feel the best in Bellevue! I always come away feeling like I've had the best dining experience ever. Keep it up - I'm one of your biggest fans!
Service was amazing, food was fantastic. I would 100% come back based on that steak alone. :)
Love El Gaucho, but this is the second time I have gotten bad service there... had a late lunch with a friend, and waiter basically never once came to ask if we wanted anything else, such as another drink. Our waters were never topped off..... come on wait staff...get up to par with the level this restaurant deserves...
The food is great though and ambiance is terrific...somehow both lively and also quiet at the same time.
I was also surprised to find that my table of two check already had the 20% tip added.. I hate when they do that, and maybe that’s the problem with the service. I would not expect an automatic tip on a table of two. In fact I wonder if it is a trick to get a double tip?????
Good food but service was extremely slow. Not the same level of service we are accustomed to at John Howie.
