"El Gaucho has played an important part in my life for many, many years. On my 21st birthday my father took me for my very first drink, which was a specially crafted birthday cocktail, created, shaken and poured by the legendary Mr. Al Black at the original El Gaucho..."

Upscale, dimly lit steakhouse featuring 28-day dry-aged steak served by a tuxedoed staff.- Google
"Post-gorging, they bring out a plate of fruit, nuts, and blue cheese."
"Fabulous steaks, incredible wine, awesome service and good happy hour on Sunday."

I have always loved the restaurant and all its glory since I first came here back in 2003. Talk about style, grace and swank...this place definitely brings back class. That's just the restaurant... The Inn is even better! Amazing rooms! We stayed in room 9 which had a view of the back alley and a peak of the water and shoreline. I'm sure other rooms have better views...except the ones along the center of inside the building. I don't recall seeing an elevator. So I became a stair master quickly. We had no problems with any outside noise but we stayed on a Sunday night. I'm kind of disappointed in how the Pampas Room has been changed from what it used to be with live acts. As for location...not a far walk away from Westlake and Pikes Place Market. Plenty of restaurant choices there...but call before going. Some places closed early despite their advertised times. I would definitely stay here again and recommend The Inn as I always recommended the restaurant...

There's a cool old time rat-pack feel to this place. Have only dined at the bar yet every time the service is exceptional. Also, you can't pout about the blue cheese stuffed olives. Prices here reflect the service and food you will receive. A favorite spot when I want to "treat yo' self".

I have been to El Gaucho several times and I am always pleased with the atmosphere, service and good eats. I love the live piano, dim lights and vintage night club ambiance. Be prepared to pay a fair price for an upscale dining experience.

This classic Seattle joint always delivers. Their service is always superior, and their food is always perfectly prepared. It's not cheap, but sometimes it's definitely worth it to splurge.

Great, dry-aged steaks with delicious sides like mashed potatoes. Wide selection of wines and cocktails, and delicious desserts to finish off the meal. With a glass of wine, an entree, and a side, it usually works out to about 100$ per person.The food during restaurant week is affordable and very delicious. The only reason why I didn't give 5 stars is that the servers are oddly aloof.

You simply cannot go wrong with this place. They have very good bartenders and a great menu and some of the best service in town. You can reserve a room at the Inn at El Gaucho from your table. All ladies are escorted arm in arm by uniformed busboys to the restroom, which reads like an old Nordstrom lounge. The restaurant itself is dimly lit and exceptionally cozy. The ambiance is unique to El Gaucho. I could go on about it forever <3

My favorite restaurant in the entire galaxy! Expensive but worth every savored bite! Heaven on a fork. I always order the Filet mignon! It is love. Can you love food? I can't stop thinking of it. I am excited to see it again.
