El Gaucho is located in downtown Bellevue. The food is amazing, the staff is very attentive, and we love the decor. Perhaps a little pricey, but well worth it for a special occasion with someone special.

Great for a business meeting in relaxed atmosphere. They had a pianist play slow tunes, the waitresses were friendly, the beer fresh and the steak frites excellent.

You are sure to impress your friends and colleagues if you bring them to El Gaucho for their first meal in Bellevue. Great steak and local sea food dishes. Good quality service and not impossible to get into like some other Bellevue restaurants.

Took my wife to the Bellevue location. Ambiance was nice , food was ok but our waiter was a disaster which detracted from our overall evening! Service was too. Slow, food was cold and waiter was kinda rude. Once we got the desert menu the waiter disappeared. After almost 15 mins we finally grabbed another waiter who brought our check.... More

We started with drinks (one cosmo and one manhattan) that were so good I almost asked the bartender for the recipe. Then I had the swordfish and my husband had the steak. Both were outstanding. Finished with chocolate bourbon cake for dessert.... More
