    Nice dinner experience just outside of Covent Gardens. So nice to not have to deal with theatre diners. Everyone around us wanted to linger over each course of our dinner. Carles provided outstanding service. If you are looking to have a good business dinner or finer night out with friends or family, choose this venue.

    Staff were polite but a little unfocused (eg got our bill wrong, seemed a little forgetful when asked for drinks). Food was bland and portion sizes were very varied. My friend's main meal was much smaller than mine. Unlikely to return

    Bought voucher as an anniversary gift. Despite explaining this upon booking, when we arrived we were presented with a menu. We mentioned that we had the voucher and our menu was whipped away and a different sheet of paper was provided with the voucher options. The set menu with a voucher is fairly limited but they will allow you to add extras, at further cost.If you are bought a voucher, I’d suggest turning down the bubbles… tasted like paint stripper. The food itself was delicious. Added some sides which were the highlight of the meal to be fair. Could have made a dinner if just those! Just one waitress but it was pretty empty… surprising for a Saturday night. She was quite efficient but not overly friendly. The restaurant itself looks lovely but, despite its size, only had diners at 7 tables. For a Saturday evening booking, we were not expecting this. Judging by the lack of staff I can only assume this is normal and they do not get many walk-ins. If you’re looking for a very quiet meal, this is the restaurant for you. We prefer a little more hustle and bustle so maybe one of the others would be worth trying. Fingers crossed it would be warmer because this one was freezing. At least 3 other diners were eating in coats. I think it was actually warmer outside. All in all, not a bad meal but would probably try one of the other restaurants in the chain if I chose to return.

    Micheal and the team took very good care of myself and my colleague last night 9Aug22 and we were very well looked after. The host was also very attentive and made us feel very welcome from the start. Only feedback would be that the table was booked for 2people at 19.30 but was set for 4. It’s the little things as the booking could have felt more tailored to enhance the overall experience. Overall a great evening.

    Drinks were wonderful. Food overall was pretty good but the lobster was very dry and obviously not fresh. You expect better for a £22 half tiny lobster. Sadly the one that ate it has been quite unwell. It was very quiet but that’s understandable as it was a Wednesday evening. Service was great.

    It was disappointing the standard at Gaucho had fallen so low. The service was very poor and the food came out cold. Never mind topping up wine and water, empty glasses were left on the table for the whole duration of the meal.

    I’m really sorry to write this and almost never write reviews but we had to send our steaks back because they were stone cold. Also the medium rare was cooked totally rare. The restaurant was also very short staffed and it took ages to get served and sorted for drinks. It’s not cheap to eat here and these days of cost of living pressures, it makes it even more painful. I felt very sorry for the totally ‘run off their feet staff’ and to be fair they deducted at our request, one of the steaks from the bill. Gaucho can’t carry on like this and need a complete rethink of their business model.

    Had the six-months anniversary dinner with my boyfriend at Gaucho Chancery Lane. Great food, wine and atmosphere. But, most of all, excellent service: the waiting staff surprised us bringing a complimentary dessert plate with a salted caramel sauce "Happy Anniversary" written on it, accompanied by desiccated coconut chocolate truffles. The perfect ending for a fab meal. Highly recommended. We will definitely visit again!

    Incredible as always. First time to the Chancery Lane restaurant and was really impressed. Michael was wonderful. Thank you. Only comment would be the service after given our desert lapsed a bit - as we waited quite a while to be asked for any more drinks or the bill. MINOR though.
