We were interrupted eight times by the staff whom were trying to sell us extra wine water etc.

Instead of a relaxing meal it was rushed and very irritating. Value for money zero.

The food was good but I'm actually quite angry about the wine menu - the waiter gave us a wine menu and the cheapest was £65!! Little did I know is that there is a cheaper menu available but this is never mentioned - total rip off so beware!

Service up to the point of being seated was great. However the female server at our table demolished all enjoyment. She was impatient, rude, forgot her "excuse me, may i take your plate" politeness...frankly her service was no better than a run-down cafe in london. The sirloin that was marinated for 48 hours tasted very dry at medium. The lack of proper steak knives was not welcomed despite their claim that the beef was soft enough to not warrant a steak knife. Apart from the pumpkin side dish and a hankering for argentinean beef, i won't set foot into this establishment again. For an overall experience for your hard-earned money, you are better off at Goodman.

Please dont be fooled by the look of this restaurant and what it pretends to be. The food is very disappointing. We regularly eat out at some of the best restaurants around London and across the country and this one really failed to impress. We ordered the steak with garlic and olive oil and the braised lamb. Both were cold and tasteless. The chips however werent too bad. The desserts were completely over priced and very small. The baked alaska was as big as an egg cup and not even cooked properly. It was a huge let down. Save your money and go elsewhere.

We were literally squashed onto a table which was far too small for the size of our party. My steak was so tough and embarrassingly chewy I had to leave most of it. The buttered carrots were raw. The staff were charming and attentive although our waiter, on clearing, spilled food over my friend. A very sub-standard experience given the high price tag.

A speciality steak house in the centre of London, it is very difficult how they can get it so wrong.

Never one to complain, however, felt I needed to in this restaurant. Fantastically over-priced and over-rated. My steak was over cooked, on sending it back, it took 20mins to return, meanwhile everything else was cold. The burger on the menu is a disgrace, couldn't wait to leave the place!

the decor is a bit cheesy but ok. service is fine but it's a bit gimmicky coming out with a steak board. main problem was the food itself. Ordered a ribeye and it had a ridiculous amount of salt on. Asked for a new one with far less salt and they brought out another which again just tasted of salt. the waitress said it is how the chef cooks them. the only thing I could taste was salt. it's not up to much these days - 5 years ago gaucho's were brilliant
