A Taste for the Elegant

When walking in to the restaurant I took a trip in time, back when life was simple . Casual was casual and elegance was El Gauchos. The service was something time has forgotten and the food extradinare. I left feeling like I should of heard Frank Sinatra saying good night and The big band saying come back the dance isn't over yet thiers still dessert.

El gaucho

What really matters is the food preparation and El Gaucho is missing this qualility. The appetizers were outstanding, the shrimp and the ribs were spicey and hot. The ceasar salad was okay, it really lacked\r a good cheese. The ceaser salad also lacked any bacon, the croutons were not produced in the kitchen and was really very bland. If you serve a steak as is on the plate the steak better be really good and t... view more

Best Steak betweem here and Texas

The Steaks are VERY delicious, I haven't had a steak this good since ""Cheeves Brothers"" in Temple, TX. The price of the steaks are well worth it by the way!! Please...................leave the kids at home or with a babysitter! Finally, dress up, jeans and running shoes are not suited for this place!!!

Outstanding Service, Mediochre dinner

Had dinner last night in a private room. While the service was excellent, the meal was nothing to brag about. The baseball cut tenderloin was cooked correctly but it lacked flavor. The potato I ordered was a joke, is that velvetta cheese they dribble on the potato. Come on Gaucho! The spicy steak appetizer was lathered in a delicious sauce which I would highly recommend, and it wasn't very spicy so most people would ... view more

I can't wait to go back

Sorry to disappoint some of the reviewers who thought this restaurant wouldn't last in Tacoma, it's still there. We went there almost a year ago and we are still talking about it. We wore jeans (no tux necessary as one reviewer suggested) and we did not feel out of place at all. The front door is so non-descript you might think you are at the wrong place, but once inside you realize you have stumbled upon a fabulous ... view more

El Gauchos--Tacoma

I have eaten at the Met, the Brooklyn and a few others in the Puget Sound area but none of them have the quality of food, service or atmosphere as El Gaucho in Tacoma. The steak was prepared well-done but it remained succulent and felt like it melted in my mouth with minimal chewing. The staff was professional. The building where El Gauch is located from the outside makes you somewhat fearful to enter. But once i... view more

Not Gonna Make It

I have never eaten at El Gaucho, so I can't compare this new one to the others. What I can do is compare it to The Met, Ruth's Chris, Union Square Grill and The Cliff House. Not even close. Too noisy, no separation from the ground floor and the bar so if you are a non-smoker, you are in for polluted air. Service was good, but nothing more. Meal preparation was very boring. Flashy menu and preparation lost poin... view more

T-town Rocks!

I was so excited to hear that an El Gaucho was coming to Tacoma! I was very impressed with the restaurant. Great ambiance, outstanding menu and impeccable service! This is not your grandfather's Tacoma!

What a treat for Tacoma!

Being a Tacoma native, I can't tell you how exciting it is to have a place like this in my backyard! I was at the grand opening and have been several times since. The food is outstanding and the service has been top notch! You have hit the jackpot and welcome to Tacoma!
