Tried El Gaucho this weekend and were not impressed. We hear about it every time we visit Seattle so we had to give it a try. The facility itself is really nice. A beautiful and swanky main room and good side room. The problem was the food and service. For the money you expect near perfection and it was not there. For example, I ordered a steak medium rare and it came medium rare, just as the chef suggests, but it simply lacked flavor. Similarly, the service was professional but missed the mark on several key points like forgetting ordered items. There are too many good restaurants in Seattle so we won't be back.

I went to this place over 10 years ago and still remember it being one of the best steaks in my life. I'm coming back in a few weeks, and you *KNOW* I'm coming to El Gaucho. Let's see if it is a fabulous an experience as I recall.

This is a great Argentine steakhouse, but it is expensive. Make no mistake, the food is great (hence the 5 stars), but price means this isn't a place that I commonly frequent. Also, the portions of food are quite large - so if you going you need to go hungry! With that out of the way, this is great steak. Large cuts of meat that are wonderfully prepared. You have to get the lobster mashed-potatoes are an excellent (but filling) side dish too. Finally, be sure to save some room. Post-gorging, they bring out a plate of fruit, nuts, and blue cheese. Granted, I am almost always too full to eat any of it - but it is a nice complementary touch. I understand that they have a nice happy hour too, but I've yet to try it myself.

Large, clean rooms with tons of amenities. Quaint decor, close to everything we wanted to see and do. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Could not have asked for more! The price is right too!!

This is definitely one of the most expensive restaurants in Seattle, but at the same time I don’t think you are getting what you pay for, I can make better steaks at home from a box. I believe the food quality is mediocre. Service and atmosphere is good, if you are looking for quality expensive food I recommend to avoid this place.
