Argentinean
Dorrego’s, is named for the famed Plaza Dorrego, a public square located in the historic San Telmo neighborhood in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Hotel Valencia Riverwalk draws inspiration from the rich culinary heritage of Argentina. He carries a rich history of many hotels and restaurants that brings a diverse culinary experience to our table. An extensive wine list will be a focal point for diners. The restaurant’s décor reflects the Spanish Colonial design and architectural heritage of Argentina, with a touch of Parisian bistro panache. Dorrego’s also features a new restaurant bar, and the welcoming space is ideal for gathering and lingering. Dorrego’s appealing terrace features additional seating topped with comfortable Spanish/Mediterranean-style cushions. The terrace features numerous planter pots, which blend the space into its tranquil River Walk setting.

    Small restaurant, great food, but the service wasn’t great. Other reviews had the service was good so we were disappointed. We received excellent service at the bar before dinner. Unfortunately it wasn’t explained to us that the bar food menu could not be ordered inside the restaurant even though the bar is attached to the restaurant and uses the same kitchen. The person I was with really wanted the Shepherd’s Pie and we were told that could not be served in the restaurant. In the end the food was amazing but from the minute we sat down our server seemed like she was having a bad day. Our Salads had to be taken back to the kitchen and we had to ask about our appetizer multiple times. Steak Oscar and dessert were great! Even the appetizer was excellent though it came out along with our main course. I would say give this place a try, overall we enjoyed it! Great drinks from the bar and excellent bar service.

    We chose this restaurant to celebrate my birthday as we traveled to San Antonio for a little birthday getaway. Although we mentioned when we made the reservation,it was not acknowledged by the staff nor by the hostess who seemed a little confused in finding our reservation. Regardless, the food and the service were great. Small menu but delicious. Our waitress had a good knowledge about the wines too and had great recommendations for the dishes we chose. It’s definitely worth dining at this restaurant, I just wish the staff who handles the reservations be more attentive to customers’ special occasions requests.

    You can’t go wrong with simplicity. The Caesar salad and steaks are perfection. Best Caesar my wife and I have had in a long time. Steak was flavorful and perfectly cooked.

    After having had a somewhat disappointing meal at one of the highest-rated establishments in San Antonio, our meal at Dorrego’s was a real delight. We were presented with an unexpected red wine taster on arrival, which was a very nice touch. We chose the home-made chorizos as an appetizer, followed by the Pan Seared Lemon, Garlic & Thyme Chicken, with roasted potatoes and sautéed summer vegetables. This was delicious, with the chicken being very moist - not dry, as in some establishments. The portions were very generous and we ended-up having our leftovers boxed-up to take back to our hotel. We had these for breakfast the next day! Our server Lauren was a true delight and deserves recognition for her knowledge of the menu and wines and for her lovely personality.

    Our meal was average. The New York strip was tough and the trout was overcooked. The wait staff was wonderful. I think maybe the restaurant was a bit understaffed.

    We decided to try this for date night, and we were not disappointed. The menu only had a handful of items listed but everything we tried was cooked perfectly. We tried the Argentinian meat empanadas (2 in order), pollo Al sartén, NY strip steak, and had a couple cocktails. It was not overly packed for a Saturday night. They even have a bar and lounge area right next to the restaurant. I would’ve spent more time there if we didn’t have to go another event. Highly recommend and will definitely be back.

    Had dinner prior to attending a performance at the Majestic Theater. Service was not rushed but very attentive. Gave a chance to have a relaxing dinner. Many diners present but noise level was not loud. Cool ambiance. Meal was delicious. Wine selections great. Definitely a restaurant worth returning to.

    Lovely evening! We arrived early before our reservation time, and the hostess was very accommodating. One of our party eats dairy- and gluten- free and the chef adjusted the daily special fish dish to fit her needs. Service was amazing! This is my third visit and I’ve never been other than “wowed” with Dorrego’s.

    We ate outside on the beautiful Riverside deck. The waiter was gracious and allowed us to split our order in half between the two of us, as portions were so generous that half of each item was exactly enough for us. That also cut the price in half, as menu items are a bit pricey.

    The only reason we went to Dorrego’s was because it presents itself as a Argentinian restaurant. But really it is not a real Argentinian restaurant. The menu is very limited. Food is OK. Service is so/so, just to say the least. Needs a lot of improvement! Dorrego’s suffers what all hotel restaurants suffer. They really do not have the staff nor the setup to be a real dining experience. It seems the only reason to go eat there is if you are staying in the hotel and do not want yo go out.

    We had a really good first impression of the hotel and restaurant. The ambiance was nice, we were greeted by an outstanding welcoming staff and had the opportunity to choose a really good outdoor seating. However, once at the table, the waitress was distracted and didn’t pay much attention to us. Didn’t introduce the menu or made recommendations. We had to constantly remind of refills and even ask for appetizers. Seems like the waitress was ignoring us and just trying to get the service done as soon as possible. We ordered two steaks, one medium rare and one medium well, both came well done. The service was borderline rude till it was time to pay. At that time, the mood of the waitress changed, now smiling, and paying much more attention. The food was really good. The steaks, even when over cooked, were tasty. The side were great and well plated. Overall the experience was good, great location, nice outdoor seating and tasty food.

    Our first time to Dorrego's. Came for dinner prior to theatre. Not much visible signage leading to restaurant within Valencia. Helpful workers pointed us in right direction. Layout and seating quite nice. Our server, Antonio, was truly exceptional. Prompt, courteous, helpful with suggestions. Best we've encountered in a long time. Kudos to him. All food was excellent, but the Mahi Mahi was superb. We left impressed and will definitely return again.

    The space is beautiful. All four of us found the Caesar salad to be outstanding. We enjoyed the sides and we enjoyed the crêpe dessert. The fish and the steaks were over cooked. The steaks were sent back and came out much better the second time. The cheesecake dessert was very strange with an odd aftertaste.
