“Superb experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2014 via mobile

We were taken here by our son as a special treat and it certainly was. Great atmosphere, wonderfully attentive staff (but not stuffy!), the food was really, really good and cooked just right, the flaming steaks on skewers was a brilliant touch! and a lady pianist was playing which added to the atmosphere. Just wish the lighting had been a little brighter as night fell.

“Good steaks, but go for the table side ceasar and cheese bread”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2014

El Gaucho is a nice high end steak place and of course the steaks are great. The flaming sword can be fun to watch, at least one person at the table should give it a try. My two favorite things here though are the table side Ceasar salad they make and the fresh cheese bread

“Great Steaks!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

Live this place! The French Rib Chop is my favorite! Great selection of Washington State Wines.

Great opulent Masculine feel of the dining room and bar!! Great Martinis!

Awesome Banana's Foster desert and presentation. Flaming Sword...

To me, you get what you pay for!!! Plus I love the chocolate chip cookies from the valet service waiting in your car after they whip it around! Nice touch!!

“the Bellevue El Gaucho steaks are terrific.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2014

The Seattle El Gaucho steaks are terrific too but very smoky and ruins your clothes and hair. You can't go anywhere else except the shower to wash up and redress in new clothing..
