My family and I had an amazing experience here as a graduation dinner. The steaks were demonstrated at the start of the meal and we were not disappointed. The service was excellent and the wine selection was superb too. The prices are high so be...prepared!More

Amazing experience. From the welcome at the door until we left at the end I cannot speak highly enough about the service we received. We were celebrating my Sons Graduation and 7 of us dined at lunchtime. Nikko served us, such friendly but very professional...service. Not overbearing in anyway but very attentive. Nothing was too much trouble, thank you so much. The food was just delicious, the Buratta being rated delicious and as for the steaks, well my parents have travelled the world and said the Fillet steak was the best they had ever eaten! The Rib eye and Sirloin were given equally high ratings!! Deserts were also delicious, especially the cookie dough pudding. The wine we had was also delicious. Thank you so much for making a special day just perfect. We cannot wait to join you for dinner again.More

Had an absolutely winded meal served by Alex. Alex was absolutely fantastic, very knowledgeable and friendly and made our experience so wonderful. The steaks were on another level definitely worth every penny.

Came in at abit before our booking and was greeted by the hostess who sat us at the bar before our table. The barman was very attentive and keen to help us out before we were escorted to our table. Our star of the evening...Elizabeth took time to talk to us aswell as delivering an outstanding service it was evident the dedication she puts into her role in the Gauchos team. Will definitely be returning soon!!More

Maybe it was because we visited on a Monday night, but the whole experience was inferior to my previous visits. Two in our party ordered fish, only to be told shortly afterwards that there was no fish. Red wine was put on the table but...they forget to bring any glasses for it. The gap between starters and mains was slight over 40 which is too long. Fries were just about warm. Excellent steak though. Towards the end of our meal the service improved, so perhaps they were just overwhelmed at the start of the night?More

I booked the private dining room for my boyfriends surprise 50th meal, as we had visited once previously and really enjoyed the whole experience, even though it was pricey. So I thought it would be a great place to go as you’re not 50 every...day. Unfortunately the food was so average and I felt so disappointed that we were dining there on my suggestion. I felt responsible. I had told a group of 10 people who were paying £70 per head (just for food) that this would be special, when it wasn’t at all. Some of the starters were dry - empanadas. When they came out I thought ‘Is that it ?’ Mine was presented very nicely, I had betroot tartare, but the plantain and tuna was also basic. Then a conveyor belt of steaks was delivered to each person at the table. So at £70 per head Gaucho couldn’t you add a little garnish or a tomato or something that would make the steak on the plate look less lonely and basic ? Then a conveyor belt of chips, so then it was then the most expensive steak and chips that I’ve ever had, and one which I could’ve easily made myself and brought from a supermarket. Nothing else on the plate apart from peppercorn sauce. Yet it was £70 per head! I left there feeling that I made everyone pay over £1200 in total in the end including drinks, ( plus £96 service charge) When it wasn’t worth that at all. Deserts were pleasant but I know I won’t be rushing back or recommending Gaucho any time soon. When you charge a higher than average price then the menu should really reflect that. I think the private dining room experience was not what it is supposed to be cracked up to be, and set menus the same. I’d avoid bothMore

We have been a few times to Gaucho and it never loses its quality. We arrived for the Birmingham Cocktail Weekend so we were able to enjoy the signature cocktail at the bar before our meal. We shared a fillet and rib eye steak, absolutely...delicious! I’m glad we didn’t have a starter as it would have been too much. The cheeseboard was also very tasty. Service was attentive and staff were knowledgeable about the steak. Looking forward to the next visit.More

Some times less is more… service is too much.m, they are breathing on your neck, all the show showing the meats is completely unnecessary, leave it for people who ask for it. Do. Or come to the table every 5 mi utes asking things. They...charged even for the water (never have seen that in a uk restaurant), the food was good but it was all decoration and veggies and the meat was 15% of the plate. Dessert was really good but again it seems like they are saving the Dulce de leche for themselves (lol) Honestly, I am Argentinian , this place IS NOT WORTH what they charge you. You pay for the unnecessary fanciness if the place and the lack of daylight… Another thing, they cancelled our booking and call us to rebook, ended up rebooking for lunch next day cause was the o ly time we could. They granted us 25% discount that when the bill came they forgot and I had to ask for it… unnacceptableMore

No, I don't think they have wagyu. All their meat is imported from Argentina so I doubt very much that it's wagyu.
