Dorrego’s was a awesome place to eat and have drinks. Great atmosphere, food and service. Would highly recommend.
Service was amazing and the food was delicious. Great service all around.
Ambience was nice. Our server was very kind and attentive. The wine we ordered was not available. The cocktails were good. The steaks were ok. The steaks came with a flight of four sauces, we did enjoy trying the different sauce for the steaks. The potatoes were a little hard and not seasoned. They give you a complimentary glass of their house wine which was very good. Overall, we would probably try a different restaurant the next time. The hotel is very nice though.
Per the listing, we planned to order off the menu and not eat the buffet. Once we arrived we were told the buffet was the only option. We should have left at this point but since it was NYE and everything else was booked we stayed. Prime rib was cold and the rest of the food was just meh. Not worth the $65 price. I ordered a $9 Malbec but the waitress brought me the $15 one according to the bill. For $200 including the $30 tip the waitress made (for picking up a couple of plates and bringing me the wrong wine) the food just wasn't up to par. Cold prime rib just ruined it. We didn't want to ruin anyone's night so we did not complain but walked away very dissatisfied.
Food was excellent and everyone was very friendly
We went to this restaurant due to the short wait time! And after eating there I have no idea how it is a short wait time! Highly recommend and will bring others back to this location! My o key complaint was that we had a hostess taking out order as a waitress and she explained that, therefor we tipped her well and embraced the experience! I do wish our order would have been taken a bit earlier. We were there for almost 2 1/2 hours due to the lack of servers. But overall would go back again! The bacon polenta and candied garlic sauce for the steak were outrageous!
Waiter was slow but was also taking care of a larger group and they were short staffed due to COVID. Food was phenomenal though! We will be back!
Best bar and bartenders. Food excellent and wait staff attentive.
Visit occurred during COVID. We were seated near window with view of the Riverwalk. The space felt more like a hallway than restaurant. However, the sounds of a Spanish guitarist filled the space and helped to set the mood. Service was excellent as we were one of the first to dine, but later became less attentive as more people arrived. Seemed a bit understaffed as the night went on. The small dishes were tasty but not super filling. We waited quite a bit of time for our steaks which may be typical for the portion of meat ordered. The flight of sauces served with dinner were an excellent touch to the meal. Based on that alone, I would want to return to Dorrego’s to dine.
Awesome dinner for a special night. Highly recommend to anyone!
Bar was great, dinner was just ok. Found a hair in my empanadas, told the server and nothing..... please don’t waste your time here.....
Dinner was fantastic! Antonio is the best waiter! We will be back to this hidden gem! The outdoor dining experience is what makes it over the top especially at Christmas.
This is a wonderful restaurant. The service, ambiance, and food, is hard to beat!
Hello Diana, Thank you for the winderful review. We really appreciate you dining with us especially during this time.
Great Thanksgiving buffet and great service. Will definitely visit again.
Thank you, Miguelr. Our team was happy to have you. We hope you come back and dine again soon.
Unfortunately we were super disappointed. One of the reasons we chose this place was that they advertised raw oysters and crab legs as part of their menu. When we visited the buffet, my husband got the last 3 oysters, I got none. There were no crab legs. Another disappointment was the fact that they charged 20% gratuity. To be fair the flyer said "subject to tax and gratuity" but 20% for a buffet is a lot. For $59 per person not including drinks it was a Thanksgiving bummer.
We would have preferred a plated meal due to Covid! Weren't pleased with "Buffet style" and fairly cold food. The hot food was lukewarm at best. We were afraid to eat it. It felt a bit like Lubys and we love Dorregos being locals to San Antonio and owners of a Travel Co.
Enjoyed all the trimmings and especially the prime rib!
Picked this place for the menu items. But got there and no crab claws to be found. Prim rib was cold. Bread wasn't fresh, mostly just average food. Way overpriced for the quality. Also the gratuity was already added to our bill (table of two). :-/
Would not reccomend.
The food was excellent, but the dessert selection was pretty small.... overall good experience... service was excellent! Staff was constantly checking on us
There was a good selection of food., However the food was cold.
Thanksgiving Buffet was perfectly executed for COVID safety. Great guest service from host/manager to waitstaff and servers. Was misinformed about mimosa been included in the price of buffet. Unfortunately due to the fact that we were the first seating in early morning, the carved prime ribs was served cold, not warm but refrigerated cold. Sadly the manager just tried to readjust the heat lamp instead of temperature checked the meat and he would have send them back to the oven to reheat. Overall, it’s only a few places open for Thanksgiving Buffet and really appreciate the staff who worked during the holiday and amazing COVID measure taken from physical distancing to sneeze guard everywhere. Holiday Buffet may not be something they do everyday and we may try their regular menu one day when in the neighborhood.
Thank you, Chua. We really appreciate you dining with us on Thanksgiving. Thank you, for noticing our extra measures for safety and our staff for working on the Holiday. I am so sorry about the prime rib. I talked with Chef about how we can offer better solutions next time. We truly hope that you come and try our regular menu soon. Our team would love to see you.
Excellent atmosphere, service, and food!
All I can say is WOW! We had dinner at Dorrego's. The menu selections were amazing. The flavor and temperatures of our steaks were perfect, and they say the dinner roles are made from scratch in house. The rolls themselves are worth a trip. We followed up dinner with Tango in the Courtyard. This was really like an escape from reality, like we had transported to Spain or Argentina. The addition of world-class Latin style dancing, anchored by Tango, and the bottle of Malbec made for a truly amazing evening. We can't wait to do this again. I'm telling everyone about this, starting here!
Took forever to find out wine bottle. First attempt at uncorking was botched. Out of the ravioli at 8:30pm. And the chicken we order was over cooked and dry.
This is one of the best restaurant to dine when u are in the River Walk. The food was delicious and had a lot of flavor. The staff was courteous and helpful. I would dine their again.
The service was perfect. We celebrated an anniversary, and the staff made the event even more special.
Beautiful restaurant. Offered me a sip of wine when I arrived. My 8 Oz Filet steak seemed smaller than the 7 Oz I’d had sr a nearby restaurant the day before but it had a nice flavor.
Great place to relax and eat on the river walk. A hidden gem of the river walk.
What a hidden gem this resturaunt is! Our server brianna was outstanding. The food, service and atmosphere was absolutley wonderful! We will be back very soon!
Great food and service
The food was wonderful; however, the service was exceptional. Antonio made dinner an experience rather than just a dinner. Will definitely eat there again and recommend to others.
Everything was.perfect! Food, service, price, setting! We stayed at the Gunter and came to eat here. I think we will now stay at the Valencia and have our dinner here every time. The bar was great to. We went to look for a place to drink after dinner and just came back to Dorrego's.
Great Argentinian food! The ambiance, the excellent customer service and delicious food, gave us an amazing experience.
I highly recommend it.
Our table had a riverview and they also had a guitarist which made everything even better. I'd definitely go back!
Food was exceptional!
Smoking is allowed even cigars outside area. Over 45 min to find a bottle of wine then it was wrong. Scallops not seared. Not all of the shortened menu items available. Requested water 3 times. Spoke to manager as leaving it is apparent where the who cares attitude comes from
Amazing and attentive service from our server Brenda! Highly recommend this place. Great ambiance and food. Perfect setting for a quiet dinner even though we weren’t quiet and they were still so sweet to us! Loved, will be back for sure! We are from Austin and it made San Antonio worth the stay.
We had a wonderful dinner!
Very good food with GREAT service ! Start with a glass of Mabec and finish with a unique desert.
My server was amazing. I wish I could remember the young lady’s name. She was excellent. The gaucho stew was delicious. The homemade bread was a tasty surprise. The NY strip was a bit of a disappointment. It was cooked medium rare the way I ordered it, but it was still too chewy. The grilled fennel was overcooked and impossible to eat. The polenta didn’t have much flavor. In the kitchen’s defense, a lot of people showed up without reservations. A waiter at another restaurant told me that as more things are opening and more people are going out some places remain under staffed. Also, I was given amazing crepes as my free birthday dessert. It was a very pleasant experience.
Dorrego’s was one of the best restaurants I’ve dined at. I’ve been at restaurants where my meal was $200. And Dorrego’s was by far the best place I’ve eaten!! Wonderful welcome, wonderful waitress, wonderful food. Dining here was a pleasure!
