I recently dined at El Gaucho for the 2nd time. The first time was a client dinner a couple years ago, and we splurged and everything was fantastic. The 2nd time was recently and I went during Seattle Restaurant Week since it was a great value (3 courses for only $28). Overall, a great experience, but a couple of mishaps along the way. My steak was ordered medium and it came out very rare, so I had to send it back. The side of mashed potatoes, while very tasty, were luke warm at best. Minor issues, but surprising at such a fine restaurant. The service was top notch, drinks were prepared to perfection, and the desserts were amazing. Overall an 8.5 out of 10, but El Gaucho has been around for a long time and for the prices they charge, they should be a 10 out of 10 at every visit. It is great place for a special occasion dinner or to take clients out (or to be taken out) and I will go back.
