Great ambience, great service, amazing service. Antonio recommended several dishes and made it worthwhile. Will be back.
Fantastic service and wonderful food! Our waitress made great recommendations!
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.
Great service, food and Flamenco guitar music!!!!!
Food and service were excellent.
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.
The food was awful. Tasteless. Cold. Expensive. Bad service. Not worth it. Don’t go. Don’t waste your money.
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.
Great food and wine served by a professional waiter. These facts combined to make the evening perfect.
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.
Wonderful meal. Enjoyed the salmon and the Gaucho Stew... loved this place. If you like boutique dining away from the crowds this is the place!
Delicious and simple, considering it was St. Patty's Day! Great waitress and food!
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.
Very good! Service was great. Our waiter was the best.
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 food was so good- unique combinations of flavors and good quality. We loved everything.
Lovely evening. Service by Antonio was outstanding and friendly. My wife's steak was a little chewy but apart from that the food was excellent. Would definitely go back.
Loved it! Will attend again for sure.
It was a beautiful night. Enough spacing for privacy and you can’t hear other peoples conversations. Food was really good! Chicken I got last time was super dry but the snapper fish and crab this time was perfect! Definitely coming back. Staff is always friendly
While you wait for table complimentary wine served, attentive & friendly service.
It was excellent and the customer service was good
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.
