El Gaucho celebrates 20 years in Seattle!

El Gaucho opened in Seattle in 1996 with the goal of providing old-school tableside service for people celebrating their lives. Twenty years later our company has grown to five restaurants and an inn. To celebrate, we have company-wide promotions and activities from June to December 2016, which include original cocktail and dinner menu items, commemorative 20th anniversary wine, throwback menu prices, and much more. Join us as we toast to the past and look to the future!

Celebrate With Us

Swanky. Nostalgic. Spirited.

Fine dining of a bygone era. We anticipate our guest’s needs with jazz, delivering a personalized and unparalleled service encounter, where the details are carefully and thoughtfully executed. A place where the water glasses never go below an inch, ladies are escorted and carts silently glide to guests awaiting tableside preparations.

This is El Gaucho.
