Patty & Lonnie's
Food Quality - Awesome
We were joined by another couple and had:
Noise Level/ Ambience - Meh
We arrived about 4:50PM and the bar seating was already almost full. The noise level was 68 decibels and because of a column in the middle of the bar area our seating configuration had us sitting in a "J" shape. That combined with the noise level made it difficult to hear conversation. There is outdoor seating during warm weather which is much more pleasant. Bathrooms are up a flight of stairs from the main dining level.
Value - Awesome
When you consider the portion size, food quality, and price El Gaucho is a solid awesome rating. The IPA is about $2 more than typical HH's. El Gaucho charges a 20% service charge, something that we don't particularly like. However, the service charge isn't something that would negatively influence us coming back to El Gaucho in the future. Consider going during warm weather to enjoy a quieter, less cramped experience.
