Best dining experience! Food service and location!
Our server was exceptional which made the dining experience very pleasurable.
The meals were incredible. Every dish was phenomenal. The cocktails were quite good as well, though three of their house cocktails were not available.
The decor and ambience were a sort of luxurious casualness that was quite comfortable & suitable for conversations.
The only noticeable deficit was in the service. While the servers were courteous, they were also clearly understaffed. They immediately recognized it, apologized for not having a available server during our reservation time, gave my guests a house red wine while we waited, and eventually sat us down. Service was somewhat chaotic throughout the evening, though not bad enough to detract from the enjoyment of the meal.
Used the Groupon for this, so had the Prix Fixe menu. We were greeted with two samples of red wine, which was awesome. Overall the food was just OK, but the service was AMAZING. I, unfortunately, cannot remember our server's name, but she was a gem. We had an issue with the first wine we ordered, and had a couple questions for her regarding the menu and she was quick to change up the wine and get us answers. Would recommend for someone who has never gone to an Argentinian restaurant and for something new and different to do, but we likely won't be back.
Service was excellent, food very good. Never know how to answer the noise level question, the restaurant is not noisy. Wine list is very nice. Can’t wait to come back and see your place packed when COVID 19 is in the past. Btw, the restaurants COVID procedures at good.
They made it a good experience for my wife and I. They gave us complimentary wine as we waited for our table. And the food was amazing the three course meal and Champaign.
Everything was perfect from the time we walked in. Food was delicious!
Food was inconsistent but the ambiance was nice
The service was amazing and the food was great. We were handed glasses of Argentina Malbec while we waited which was a nice touch.
The environment was great but we were looking for more of the Argentina style of food.
Everything was fantastic from the service to the food.!
First time here they gave us wine when we walked in which was nice. We didn't have to wait long to get our table which was nice. The steak was not cooked as suggested we ordered medium and got medium well. My wife's side was cool not warm but mine was all hot. The service was excellent so we may give it another try.
Wonderful experience. Great open bar and restaurant. Service was phenomenal the whole evening from the bar tenders to the food server. Pre-game drinks were well crafted by the mixologist behind the bar. Had a flamingo guitarist playing out in the bar which set the mood. We went family style and tried an assortment of starters then transitioned to several entrees. Notably the empanadas and the steak were off the hook. Great experience- would definitely go back.
Best meal in San Antonio
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.
