Great reviews, online and all over town. We planned El Gaucho as the grand finale of a 10 day trip. Nice people, nice enough atmosphere. NOW, the bread was cold, hard and inedible. Drinks and soup ok. While we ordered the server, doing his best to help us to answer correctly, went on about how their temperatures run quite cold and a medium is a cold red center. We ordered accordingly, when he brought the potato out, he had to throw it out, it was burnt and hard inside. Steaks came out, burnt and hard inside. They offered to make more, but after all that over effort to make us order them that way, and the extensive time it would take to start over, we were just too frustrated. So, no steaks, and still walked out with a bill over $150. LUNACY! It's one thing to make a little mistake, but to ruin the meal on a special occasion and then still expect a payment like that, AND we had still to go elsewhere for dinner. One of the biggest dining disappointments of our lives. We felt stolen from, and cheated out of a more than promised experience.
