“Very expensive for average food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2012

The atmosphere is very classic and upscale. We had an awesome waiter that was very personable and thoroughly enjoyed his job. He made us tableside Caesar salads that were great! The steaks we had were good, but overpriced for what you get. Unfortunately, there are other steakhouses in Bellevue that we prefer and find the overall value better. El Gaucho does look like a good place to celebrate with large groups - there were several going on during our dinner.

Amazing place. They will usually go out of their way to make sure u are happy. This restaurant is unparalleled for their food and service. Happy hour is the best time to try little bites for cheaper :)

My husband and I celebrated our 23rd wedding anniversary here and thoroughly enjoyed it. Service was top and the four in our party all enjoyed our meals. Easy parking in the garage. Highly recommend.

“Awesome experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2012

Our date night last night was terrific thanks to the great meal and staff at El Goucho. It began when we finished at the home show two hours before our reservations. The hostess graciously accommodated us saying that it was no problem at all. The steaks were perfect along with sides and appetizers. A special shout out goes to Dominic, our waiter, for the great recommendations and insuring that our night out was perfect.
