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’s Executive Chef Brian Randolph draws his 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Our table had a riverview and they also had a guitarist which made everything even better. I'd definitely go back!

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

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.

I was in town with my 11 year old daughter for her birthday trip. The service was friendly, efficient and gracious. The waiter paired my dinner with a glass of wine that was perfect. The tables were socially distanced per the current guidelines. The bread, ravioli and chocolate pots are not to be missed

Ravioli was served like warm, chewy ribeye for $50? Sweet potatoes were under cooked. The only saving grace was our server Briana, she was so nice and energetic.

This was our first visit to Dorrego’s, we went to experience the culinaria menu. The hotel and restaurant are decorated beautifully and the live music playing was a wonderful addition that created a warm and inviting mood. The food was amazing, all three courses were so flavorful and great portions. The empanadas were savory with a perfect pastry crust. We had a New York strip that was cooked perfectly and the sweet potatoes and broccoli on the side were just as flavorful as the steak. We tried all three desserts offered on the culinaria menu and each one was amazing but very different from the other but the crepes were our favorite. I believe our server was Briana and she was so attentive and her recommendations were all spot on. We enjoyed our experience so much we are planning a stay at the hotel.

Went here for my 6th year anniversary and it is a must go to! I have never had Argentinian food before, and if you haven't either, this would be the place to go. We walked in and were greeted in every form possible to include complimentary wine, and were able to lounge in a beautifully furnished lobby. Once seated Brianna (our server) was the absolute BEST, she made sure everything was squared away for us and was very knowledgeable of all the questions asked (since I was not familiar with the cuisine). Each dish of the three course meal was fantastic and would definitely recommend the oxtail ravioli. We appreciate Brianna and the staff there at Dorrego's. Will definitely go back.

The food here was complex, different, and unlike anything I’ve ever tried from any of my travels across the globe. I have never wanted to compliment the staff in person before, but last night I had to because the experience was so excellent. Every dish was executed perfectly, and the chef knows how to combine texture and flavor in order to satisfy any palate. The service and environment was also great for a romantic night on the river walk. Amazing.
