“Great Service, food ok”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

One of the most emblematic places in seattle is El Gaucho steak house. The place takes you back in time. Coat required I believe. The place is great for a nice romantic dinner. The steak we ordered had to be taken back because it was under cooked. When they brought it back it was dry and I was not that hungry anymore because I had the onion soup. Very classy, kinda expensive $200 for two, the food is ok.

“A step back in time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

Steakhouse environment from the past. Enter and walk down grand staircase, dimly lit environment. There is a grand piano at the end of the bar that has a table top with seating around the piano. Service was excellent and food was delicious.

“Classic Steak”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2013

Classic steak house. Come hungry. Ask the waiter what comes with the meal. Side dishes might be unnecessary as the main dish will have many extras. Not well known the Seattle site has a limited number of quaint hotel rooms and a small theater for exclusive movie showings.
