What can I say after my most recent visit to the Gaucho in the City?
I have been taken here several times over the years by business colleagues, and unfortunately each time it seems to have slipped a little. Initially I was impressed, the food, ambiance and service was different, good and interesting. However over time as the restaurant scene for business has evolved the Gacho doesn’t seem to have kept up. The menu, decor and introductions to the steaks haven’t changed and are getting a little stale.
Lately, I’ve become interested in finding the world’s best burger (to my taste) – so when I saw that they had one made with fresh Argentinean beef I thought I would give it a try. Perhaps my mistake was straying from their specialty as a when it did finally appear it was served cold. It was apparent that it had been completed first and set aside while they prepared the rest of the party’s streaks. I will give them credit when I mentioned this fact they insisted in making a new one for me, however it did end up disrupting the meal a little.
Overall the burger was good, but nowhere close to my top five (so far), and when it did re-appear they neglected to replace the sides. Not a big deal, but with the prices charged it was annoying.
Overall an unmemorable and expensive experience.
