The seafood special was paella. Perfect treat. Steak was perfectly cooked.. excellent service. A guitarist was playing great music, but they also had radio music playing overhead. I would have preferred to have only the live music.

We had the stew and empanadas for our appetizers. The stew was absolutely delicious couldn’t stop eating it. The empanadas were puff pastry and filling was picadillo, raisins and nuts and perfectly seasoned. Everything we ordered was outstanding.

Disappointed in the evening. Not a great view of the Riverwalk and the food was good not spectacular. I went there based on reviews which in my opinion were not accurate.

It was a disaster. The restaurant was understaffed. The bartender was the waiter and we were joking at our table that he was also the cook. He did everything he could to make all the customers happy, but there was not much he could do to fix the problem. Our appetizer and the main courses took more than an hour and a half to get to our table. The food was ok, not as good as I expected. I expected excellent quality because of the reviews, but as I said, it was just ok. The hotel is beautiful and so is the restaurant.

Dorregos, the Argentinian restaurant in the Hotel Valencia, is another addition to the crowded steak restaurant scene on the riverwalk. Although service was outstanding, my ravioli dish was a disappointment. My husband fared better with his steak entree. If I return, I will order likewise.

The service was outstanding. The view, beautiful. The food was delicious, but many items on the menu we saw online and in the hotel lobby were not available. We stayed at the Hotel Valencia and would have liked to the convenience of eating at Dorrego a few times, but the menu selection was too limited.

Amazing views, awesome service and the food was great. Try the empanadas as an appetizer along with a bottle of Luca and for dessert the fruit with a scoop of homemade ice cream; was the icing on the cake. Our waitress Cynthia was super.

Excellent service. Loved our experience. Hard to find a good restaurant that is right on the river walk. This ticks the box of being on the river walk and having good food / service. Our waiter was excellent and all staff were friendly.

Server was extremely friendly and very attentive. Food was amazing! Ambience only received a 4 for two reasons. First, at our request we were seated in the best location to hear the Flamenco guitarist. Unfortunately this meant we were seated right behind the hostess podium where there was a lot of foot traffic. Also, at one point someone turned on music in the overhead sound system which interfered with our enjoyment of the guitarist. I should mention, however, that as soon as this was mentioned to our server, the problem was resolved. Overall we had a wonderful experience and would definitely visit again.

We came to eat here for our 5 yr wedding anniversary. Our waitress was very good and attentive enough but not excessively so. My main issue was that one of the hotel staff told us to to wait in the lobby for a hostess to come check us in-we waited 10 minutes or so and still no one came. so we then went and stood at the check in stand for another 5 minutes until someone finally came to ask if we had reservations. after getting over that snafu we had a great dinner! the food was great quality and flavor was on point. overall we enjoyed our dining experience.

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.

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.
