Not comparable to the Metropolitan Grill. The steak I had was good but poorer quality and pricier than the Metropolitan. The side of mashed potatoes were not very interesting... not creamy, not buttery, just blah.

Turn up the lights, improve the food and lowere the prices and I'd return. Otherwise, I have better places to go.

My boyfriend and I came here to celebrate Valentine's Day and our Anniversary. We had a wonderful time! Hostesses and waitstaff treated us like royalty and went above and beyond to congratulate us on our anniversary and make us feel special. The food was delicious and, all in all, we had a magical evening.

El Gaucho never disappoints. This is our once a year anniversary splurge and it is always wonderful. They set the scene with rose petals and a card, comp our dessert, the food is incredible and staff are there to make sure everything is perfect. I love being escorted to the restroom (it's a bit dark/romantic lighting) and checked on. Valet is complimentary, so no walking in the cold! Overall it was a great night as always.

Always a special place to celebrate. Excellent food and service. Lives up to its reputation of fine dining. Atmosphere is very dark unlike the Bellevue El Gaucho where we usually go. Loved the piano music playing as we dined.
