El Gaucho Review

The specialty at this upscale steak house in the elegant Benson Hotel is 28-day, dry-aged, certified Angus beef, but chops, ribs, and chicken entrées, also cooked over a bed of glowing coals in the open kitchen, are delicious as well. Attentive tuxedo-clad servers prepare the chateaubriand, from-scratch Caesar salad, and bananas Foster flambé tableside, and live Spanish guitar music serenades dinner guests every night. While the service is impeccable at this Seattle transplant restaurant, brace yourself for the hefty bill. Reservations are recommended.

    Perfect for a Special Occasion

    We stumbled across El Gaucho and was pleasantly surprised! The interior was quintessential steak house decor (dark wood, black leather booths, white table cloths, intimate lighting). The steaks were outstanding, particularly the baseball cut top sirloin. The prices were a bit steep, but for a special occasion, it is worth it. We will come again!
