Maybe it’s because I don’t normally eat in this sort of restaurant, but I was impressed. My meal came to my table on a sword – that’s right, a sword – oh, and it was on fire. The risotto was amazing. No dessert for us, no room, but they brought a platter of fruit, nuts, and really good fancy cheese anyway, to round out the meal. I ached for hours afterward because of how much I ate, and I was even splitting all of it.

I have enjoyed a meal at El Gaucho several times. If my wallet was a tad better stuffed, I would eat here once a month. But alas, nay is the case, so El Gaucho remains an occasional treat with the occasions far too infrequent. The El Gaucho experience is complete with valet parking, a fantastic downtown location, more tuxedos than Oscar Night in Hollywood, fabulously attentive waitstaff, a delightful ambiance and of course beautifully prepared steaks that are so thick and juicy your mouth is watering as you make your way to your table to start the night. Let there be no misunderstanding, you may need to refinance your house after receiving the El Gaucho bill at the close of your evening. But you won’t be angry at the restaurant, rather, you might be thinking about a part time job you could take so you can afford additional visits. I have ordered the same thing on each visit, the Filet Mignon. The steak is as tall as it is wide and tempts every food fantasy you have ever had. El Gaucho is simply the best steakhouse in Portland.

OK, the filet mignon was succulent and as thick as any steak I’d ever seen. The service was attentive, with waiters coming at you like staff sargeants. But for the value—$50 a steak— I’d rather have Ethiopian, Greek, Thai or Spanish food for less than half the price. The mashed potatoes? Skip ’em. Would never have set foot in the place without a gift certificate and likely never will again without one. We had a memorable 2.5 hours, but the company had most to do with that.
