Went to Gaucho's for the first time. All I can say is it will also be my last.
The service was rushed and impersonal. It was like it was a race to stuff us full of meat and turn us out. The meat was in general over cooked - and not one server asked how we preferred our meat to be cooked. The shrimp were cooked to a point that they were little pieces of rubber. They continually brought out the lesser expensive cuts of meat - but, the pricier ones (leg of lamb, etc.) we actually had to ask for. The salad bar was substandard and bland.
Although the restaurant was aware it was an anniversary dinner there was no recognition - so, I thought that perhaps they would mark the occasion with a dessert and ordered a tiramisu to split with my husband. To my surprise it came out still frozen (obviously it was pre-fab).
At $50 a person, $180 total, I will go down the street to Flemings for a good steak and warm service.
