I recommend this as a great lnch spot, although dionners are also very good. The deserts are awesome, and served with flare. Its an expensive restaurant, but has a nice feel to it, the staff are friendly. I've been there many times, and I recommend it without hesitation.

This was our first visit to El Gaucho. The restaurant has a great ambience and the service is excellent. Our mains were the pepper steak and the Linguine (scallop & prawn). Everything was very tasty (including our extras; starters, salads) but, the prices are very expensive. Great for a special occasion but wouldn't want to dine here regularly.

This is one of the best place in Bellevue for steaks. Very well prepared and huge portions. The service is very dedicated and gentle. But, as usual for this kind of place in Bellevue it is expansive. About 120$ per person. Try the Châteaubriant it is just perfect.

Not only are the entrees amazing the sides are wonderful too. The atmosphere is perfect for a night out and the wine list is second to none. The staff always goes above and beyond to make your dining experience great. I have never had a bad meal or experience at El Gaucho.

El gaucho is perfect for happy hours in a fancy environment (live piano music) and plenty of space for many people. I even have seen a conference room option for a group who was hosting a corporate event. My group took drinks and appetizers. The service was good.

We visited this VERY EXPENSIVE restaurant and left disappointed. After dropping $225 for dinner and one drink... service was moderate and food wasn't anything spectacular. My husband ordered the EL Gaucho steak that cost $75 on its own.... a very modest cut and overdone. The service just isn't what you would expect given the price of their plates. We wouldn't... More

We were celebrating a birthday. Our birthday guest was greeted with HB and there was a birthday card signed by what looked like everyone. She took it home as a memento. We have been at this location before with a great experience. The lighting is low creating a great atmosphere, especially if the evening involves romance. There is piano music... More
