Ok I know it's supposed to be fantastic but when we visited earlier this year we were not impressed.

The service was over the top. When either of us left the table a waiter pounced (the only way to describe it) over to make idle chit chat. After this happening twice we kept an eye on the waiters who were hovering...they pounced almost before someone had left the table. Seamed like they were taking notes as different staff knew the previous conversation. Impressive but annoying and slightly creepy.

The food was OK but did not justify the cost. The chimichurri was lack lustre and the rest unremarkable.

On the plus side the venue is fantastic.

If the cost was lower it would have gained an average rating.

We enjoyed a great steak lunch. Have eaten here a couple of times before. Still haven't had a better steak in the Manchester area. The staff are very professional and helpful. . Its an impressive venue, and it feels very special to eat there. It is expensive, but in fairness we had a wow lunch.Of course the meat if fantastic, but one small area they could improve on is the "chips", they were pretty average. There are lots of gourmet pubs who produce better. We will keep returning to Gaucho, its special.

Lovely place, very different BUT wouldn’t have chosen it for a business dinner if I had known how dark and intimate it is. That said the food & wine was lovely and the service quick and attentive. Knowledgeable staff on hand to help choose the cuts of meat and wine selection to compliment if you are not sure.
