#TBT Capturing the essence of the Gaucho, this painting was commissioned to fill a large space in a private dining room at El Gaucho Tacoma. It measures 8’ x 8’. Nic Kassis, who at that time was the General Manager at El Gaucho Seattle, was used as the matador. #Gaucho20

#TBT “Start the magic,” were the three words El Gaucho owner Paul Mackay would say to cue pianist Daniel Davison to play when the restaurant doors were about to open for the night. Live music is integral to El Gaucho’s swanky and ritualistic ambiance. This particular painting illustrates Daniel Davison, the very first musician hired by owner Paul Mackay in 1996. Daniel was also the third employee, coming on board right after Paul himself and Chef Ken Sharp. This painting prominently hangs behind Daniel as he still plays Tuesday - Saturday nights beginning at 6pm. #Gaucho20

We love anything iconic and are thrilled Zagat listed El Gaucho as one of Seattle's Iconic Restaurants that everyone needs to try! http://ow.ly/PAjL301O3a4
With the rate that the Seattle food scene is growing, it’s easy to only focus on what's hot and new. But we wouldn’t be at the culinary high point that we are today without the iconic restaurants that paved the way. Some of them are quaint, neighborhood joints serving up fresh handmade ...

El Gaucho Tacoma Executive Chef Jesus Boites created this oh-so easy but flavorsome Watercress and Fennel salad which is featured on our menus this summer. This recipe is sure to be a go-to favorite for carefree summer days, whether you are entertaining friends or simply craving a quick and healthy meal for one. Bon appetit! http://ow.ly/84V8302FpTY

#TBT In 1998 the Pampas Club opens below El Gaucho featuring a cabaret show for a few months. It reopened as the Pampas Room, offering full dinner service from El Gaucho, and live music every Friday and Saturday night. #Gaucho20

#TBT The Gaucho culture has been celebrated by poets and immortalized on canvases by many great painters. Gauchos would gather together and cook meat over an open flame. This was also a spirited time of singing, dancing, and sharing stories. This mural, done by Nina Mikhailenko, was a combination of old Marlboro ads and National Geographic pictures, plus characters in El Gaucho’s history. Measuring 7’ x 18’, it is four panels and painted specifically for the Wine Cellar, a suggestion from the staff. Many personnel are included in the painting, including Philip Christofides (El Gaucho architect), Howard Lieberman (business advisor to the Mackays), Michael DonRicco (cigar captain), Jon Sheard, Paul Mackay, and others. #Gaucho20

Sweeten your summer with this delicious strawberry-rhubarb tart! AQUA by El Gaucho’s pastry chef, Ali Green, created this wonderful dish to finish off your meal – it’s light but bursting in flavor. To top it off, it’s easy to make, too. Bon Appétit! http://ow.ly/mxWW301zul8

There is a woman constantly smoking just feet away from the door sitting in a walker, she's not old and lives next door. The cigarette stench is a detriment and off putting, I would ask her to leave but she's on El Gaucho property. I really wish they would make her go away, she's dirty and smelly right by the primo steak restaurant of Seattle, not a great image!
Response from the owner - a month ago
Hello Mac, Thank you for taking the time to write a review about El Gaucho. We apologize that the people smoking next door to our restaurant create an off putting environment and that the stench is a detriment. Unfortunately this is an issue that we have had for quite some time, and despite our best efforts there has been nothing we can do to change the situation. The people who smoke in this spot live in the building next door and because they are not on our property, and they stay 25 feet away from our front door, they are not breaking the law. Our General Manager, James Parsons, welcomes your feedback and any thoughts or ideas you may have on the matter. You can contact him via e-mail at jparsons@elgaucho.com or directly at the restaurant at 206-728-1337. Thank you again for taking the time to write your feedback and we hope you will still choose to dine with us. Cheers, Chad Mackay | President & COO

The steak is delicious, the service was excellent. Music and atmosphere were wonderful. I would love to come back on an wedding anniversary or birthday. Our waitress Danielle was amazing she was attentive but not overbearing.

Really great service and a super ambience. Looks like a former Speakeasy. It's a steakhouse and the steak was very good. Though I wouldn't say it was the best I've ever had. Bread pudding for dessert was excellent. Overall I highly recommend it.

All I can say is wow, the food was great. The only complaint I can have is they put us right next to the kitchen and we were sweating by the end of the meal. If you make a reservation, ask to be seated away from the kitchen, hot fires equals sweaty heads.

Really great service and the atmosphere here was really great. The steak was a little to salty for me but the sides we ordered were all amazing.

The steaks are great here, though pricey. But they're definitely worth it. I also suggest getting the baked potato which is very tasty as well.
