We visited the Gaucho Grill as a party of six...all family members. The atmosphere is very comfortable and inviting. We thought it would be a wonderful experience. However, that was not the case.

First of all, the service was excruciatingly slow. I had to get up from the table several times to request more water, bread, another cocktail, etc. We waited for our entrees' for at least 45 mins.
Once the food did arrive, we were less than happy with our dinners. Bland and tasteless.

My family was throughly disappointed with our dinners. The service was poor, the food just average and to top it off....pricey.

Great ambiance, an outstanding meal, and wonderful staff! I thoroughly enjoyed the chorizo sausage appetizer and the Mix Brochette skewers of meat with veggies. Fabulous favor. I was in town for business and plan to return to Long Beach for vacation and will treat my wife to a meal at the Gaucho Grill! Maybe two.

I came here for happy hour with a few friends. The place has great ambience, good happy hour menu with awesome prices...but the service is a bit slow.

We ended up here after Phil Trani's totally flubbed a birthday dinner reservation. A quick "what's available" on the Open Table app and we were on our way to Gaucho Grill. I've eaten lunch there before and have always had a great meal as well as good service, but several of the others in the group had not been there before.
We were seated immediately on the heated outdoor patio, but were still able to hear the live music from inside. It was such a nice evening out and being seated on the patio only added to the great ambience. Our meals were all fantastic, cooked to perfection. James, our server, provided excellent, attentive service and even made suggestions from the menu to those who had not been there before. He made what started out what could have been a disappointing birthday dinner a total success and everyone had a great time. Thanks James! I will definitely be back and I'm sure the others in our group will too.
Be sure to try the white sangria!

I made a reservation and no table was available to me upon my arrival. They scrambled to find a table in a corner of the room. The food was good - the steak was properly cooked and the black beans were good. At the same time, nothing execptional either!
The big issue is the service - very slow and not very organized. My appetizer never showed up...
The waiter was nice and polite but had too many tables, barely saw him.
Overall, don't expect great service or great food. In 4 words: just an average place
