    We celebrated a birthday, and received excellent service and food. Loved the live music and were still able to talk at our table without yelling like at other restaurants.

    Food was great, but the service could used some improvement. Expected the service to be better or mimic Morton steak house since we are looking at the same amount. Two other tables of groups of 4 got there food and alcoholic drinks before us and we arrived between 10-15 mins before and submitted our orders in advance compared to them and we where a party of two. Also our food waiter disappeared for quite a while and we where waiting for refills during the whole dining experience. Overall the food was delicious but is not worth it with the experience/ service we received. If I’m paying that amount for food I expect top notch service.

    Service a slow, but venue was busier than normal. Order took longer than usual to come out and my appetizers like salad and fries came out with my dinner. Food was delicious as always so worth the wait. Server was nice and tried to provide the best service he could. Took about 10 min to get the check and another 10 min for server to collect my payment. I would still keep going due to the food quality and taste, love the live guitar player. Makes atmosphere so much more pleasing.

    Steaks ordered by others in my party that were ordered medium ended up as burnt. My salmon was good, but also overcooked. Normally Argentine food is very good, but they missed the mark this time.

    The table still had trash from the previous party when we sat down. We didn't get any plates or utensils until we had to flag somebody down AFTER we got our appetizers. And it was hard to get anybody's attention. When we got our entrees, it was room temperature at best, not even warm or hot, as if they were sitting out for a while.

    Sunday was a bit busy and understaffed. It took a while to get our order & the food & drink itself . The food however was delicious and price is good too. Staff was courteous. If you have lunch on a weekday, food & service are both excellent.

    Ate for Dine LA. Had the filet mignon and it was cooked dry. The corn was good as usual. They ran out of chocolate mousse. I go to the Downey location regularly and never had a bad meal and been to Buena Park also and was delicious. So disappointed at the West Covina location.

    Upon arrival to restaurant we observed a musician was preparing to perform out in patio. Luckily we had made reservations to be seated out in patio. The guitar singer was awesome! He absolutely made the ambiance so worth being there! Unfortunately, our meals took over 1.5 hour to be served. The lamb chops I ordered were charred. My sister ordered filet minion which was ok- but the wedge potatoes were raw. The seafood appetizer arrived after both entrees were served. The only delicious items included one empanada (short rib) and the welcome bread w the chimi churri sauces. Unbelievable. I suspect we recieved poor service BECAUSE we were there for the Dine LA event. Everyone else who was there ordered off the main menu and were attended to more immediately. Someone should explain to this business the actual reason for the Dine LA- is to expose their delicious meals so customers return. Not to punish those participating in DINE LA.

    I cannot recommend this restaurant enough. The food is fantastic. Literally everything I’ve tried is great. Have had the empanadas multiple times, the fillet multiple times and it is always fantastic… you must to get the corn pudding as a side!! I’ve also had their salad and pastas that are delicious. They have their own beer and great cocktails. Always make a reservation though 😉

    Steak chewy and service slow...the medium skirt steak was too chewy for our liking while the appetizers were good (prawns and palm, chorizo tasting). It took two waiters to get us salt and pepper and checking out took 7 minutes from the credit card was taken to return.

    I chose this restaurant to celebrate my mom’s birthday because I had been here before and had a great experience. I was sorely disappointed that I chose this restaurant to celebrate a special day. The food was good but the quality of the meal was overshadowed by the poor service. The server took our order and didn’t check on us. I understand when staff leaves you alone to enjoy your meal but here, but nobody was ensuring that we had what we needed to enjoy our meal. Gonzalo was busy on the computer. I had to flag down someone to refill my water and then again 10 mins after we had finished, I had to ask the hostess for takeaway containers. We wanted to order some empanadas but we’re never given an opportunity to do so. Although I specified that we were celebrating a birthday upon making my reservation, our server didn’t acknowledge it. When he brought the check and he was asked to bring something to celebrate her birthday, he said ok as he walked away. After waiting 15 minutes, during which he had walked by twice without acknowledging us, we just left. It was not the warm, friendly fun place I remembered dining at.

    The restaurant is very dark inside. Had to keep moving the menu around to find natural sunlight so I could read it. Some food was pretty good - empanadas, filet, chopped salad. Other food was just ok. My short ribs were over cooked even though I ordered medium. Service was not very good. Our empanada order was forgotten about even though we ordered those with our drinks. Waiter never refilled our water nor was around to ask for more. A different waiter gave us our check. We then had to ask a busboy to give the check to the waiter to process the payment. I don’t think we’ll go back. Very unfortunate since I follow on Instagram and was very excited to try it. We were at the West Covina location.

    We had a wonderful time at Gaucho Grill over dinner and Tango Night last night. Vanessa, hostess/maître d' was so gracious and accommodating. At first, she couldn't find our tickets in the guest list, but she has a way of making us feel calm and reassured us that we will be seated in the reserved area for ticket holders. She does her job really well! I highly recommend going there to experience the Argentinian cuisine and for the tango night. GD Tango are amazing! Such a superb experience!

    Dinner with another couple on their first time visit. One had ordered the bone in rib eye and intended for the regular portion. Not the Gaucho size. Realizing after the first cut, she said this was quite big for a regular size. Then realized it was the Gaucho size. She didn’t specify during the order but server should’ve clarified which size she wanted instead of the default Gaucho. She enjoyed it but she was a petite person and was only able to eat a quarter of it. Next time to make sure to specify which size.

    Great service as always. My skirt steak came out lukewarm and wasn’t as flavorful as in previous times. Their quality of meat is always great, they just need consistency in seasoning. Had the Evita salad for the first time and it was very tasty. It was a bit heavy on the dressing so next time I’ll make sure to ask for light dressing.
