Dined last week and left disappointed. It was Seattle restaurant week so it was busy but no excuse when the price point is as it is.
Seating- Reservations were made 4 weeks beforehand and we were seated in a "semi-private" dining room,not at all what we wanted to showcase the restaurant to our visiting guests. I was told they were overbooked for larger parties so we'd have to take what they had. Frustrating.
Food: Didn't have any complaints in the food department. One praise, the pistachio ice cream was amazing and we were all fighting over it!
Service- was quite poor, in terms of typical El Gaucho service. Normally I'm not too hard on service but this upset me given we had guest that we really wanted to impress. One of us ordered a flight of wine, he only received one glass and had to repeatedly ask for the next. Another asked for a topping on her baked potato, never came.
Last thing- I LOVE the fruit & cheese delivered at the end of the meal,(its nearly my favorite part) this time it never came. Yet another reason we chose to showcase El Gaucho to our guests.
All is all left full on good food but disappointed in many ways.
