Our dining experience was good, but nothing exceptional as I would expect from a restaurant at this price level. You get a much better experience at Morton's for the same price point. The food, service, and details covered are all much better at Morton's. At the end of the meal at El Gaucho, they bring out a complimentary fruit & cheese bowl. The fruit bowl is really ridiculous. It is a large bowl full of unpeeled, unsliced fruit. There was a whole apple, whole orange, whole pear, etc. It would be kind of messy to start peeling a whole orange & eat it. That was just silly. I don't think anyone would actually eat anything out of that bowl. They probably just serve the same bowl to every table all night long. I don't remember what kind of cheese was on the plate, but it was the most awful cheese you have ever tasted, and that is a complete understatement. There are no words to describe this cheese. Other than that, the rest of our food was fine, but just nothing exceptional. If you want a fine dining experience, I would skip El Gaucho & go to Morton's where every single thing is perfect.
