El Gaucho was excellent. Our waiter provided excellent service and it was nice having a live band at dinner. The wife and I will definitely be going back again.

The food and service was very good, but it was expensive. A 20% tip was automatically added on to our bill for our party of four. Our bill came to over $450 for our party with one drink each. Nice experience, but probably will not return anytime soon.

My $75 ribeye was disappointing. It had quite a bit of tough grisl in it. I questioned the waiter and he said it was to be expected “connective tissue”. I have had a lot of rib eyes and they are usually always very tender.
Also we had a $50 gift card that was rejected due to it being “out of date”. Too bad the customer had to absorbe the value of the card.

The food was good, but it took over an hr to get to us, but I was disappointed that I made reservations over a month ago and we stuck in the back booth of the bar area. We couldn’t have much of a conversation because it was super loud.

We had the Chateaubriand for two . . . very tasty . Meat cooked perfectly and asparagus as well. Live guitar music a nice bonus. After dinner cigar bar was nice too. Wish it would have cost about half what it did, but El Gaucho has now been checked off the bucket list.
