El Gaucho

Timeless Charm in Seattle

In an age of superstar chefs and trendy ingredients, El Gaucho harkens back to a forgotten era of fine dining.

Enjoying a meal here is equal parts refinement and theater. While you’re enjoying a glass of wine or a pre-dinner cocktail, pay attention to the tables around you. The elegant establishment is known for its flashy tableside presentations which include a massive center-cut filet carved at the table and a flaming bananas foster. One thing’s for sure. With warmly lit tables, swanky piano music, and exceptional service, sophistication is expected at this special restaurant. The continental menu offers a wide selection of great local fish and chops. They also have vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options for guests with dietary restrictions.

Wine enthusiasts will enjoy the 401 Room, which features a cozy 10-person table surrounded by the restaurant’s working wine cellar. Try out bottles from local wineries and hard-to-find small-batch producers. Their extensive list has many well priced choices.

Menu Highlights:
Wicked Shrimp, Chateaubriand, and Bananas Foster.
