The new restaurant, Dorrego’s, is named for the famed Plaza Dorrego, a public square located in the historic San Telmo neighborhood in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Plaza Dorrego is filled with cafes, bars and pubs, and is a popular gathering place for locals and visitors alike.

Hotel Valencia Riverwalk’s Executive Chef, Anthony Mesa draws his inspiration from the rich culinary heritage of Argentina. 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.

My wife and I stayed at the Hotel Valencia for Valentine’s Day. Which was superb. We selected Dorrego’s and they did not disappoint. Every course was a true pleaser. We started with the Shrimp and Grits appetizer that was seasoned perfectly. We both took a chance on the soup and were both nervous of having scallops in the soup. It was simply delicious. The steak was perfectly cooked and paired well with some delicious oven roasted potatoes and asparagus. The chocolate ganache cake and champaign soak strawberries finished off the evening in style.

We even met a great couple dining next to us which topped off the night.

Located near The Majestic theater. Went there prior to attending play.

Arrived at the restaurant right at 7:30 pm along with at least 3 other parties with the same reservation time. After a short wait we were seated at our table. Food was great, the ambiance of the restaurant was very chill. One thing noted was they only had two servers waiting on table, so it was a gap in between the course. We we’re also at a table near the patio door and the one waiter that was assigned to the patio left table door open every time he stepped out which let a very cold draft in the area where we were seated. When my husband asked him to please shut the door when after him his reply was “I’ll try”. Other than that we enjoyed our meal. Will return.

Our service was slow, the wine was warm, and the meat and fish were all over cooked. I think they had staffing issues the night we were there. Our waiter was friendly and described the various dishes to us. We asked for a table side cooler for our wine and they didn't have any.

Feb 9th, 6:15pm Dinner for 2 was good : Waiter was nice, prompt and knowledgeable. The Octopus was a bit over cooked. The lamb meatballs were great. The Sea-bass was average.

Feb 10th, 10:30am Breakfast for 2 was a disaster: Not crowed (maybe 4 tables being served). Waitress was in disarray, we sat 15 min before taking our beverage order, another 15 mins to bring tea and coffee, and only had enough coffee for half a cup and it was lukewarm, also forgot the water. Took another 20 mins to receive the meal and the other half of coffee and 2 glasses of water, I actually had to locate the manager to receive our meal. The manager offer very little concern (most restaurants would have offered a discount). The food (egg and bacon tacos, fruit tray and oatmeal) was good but not worth the wait.

Dorrego’s has potential but is not worth the prices charged especially considering the service provided.

It is the ideal place to go before a show. You can park your car, eat and walk to the Majestic or the Tobin.
The food is very good and a good value

Very nice argentinian cuisine among many tex-max and tourist-trap restaurants along the Riverwalk. Very good food, great service, comfortable and quiet place.

We enjoyed the Restaurant Week Menu for dinner. Service was excellent, with no water glass left unfilled. Food came out quickly and hot. Hits were the stuffed quail and gnocchi. The "lamburguesa" hamburger was also tasty. Misses were the overdressed salad and squash and ginger soup that had little squash or ginger flavor. The restaurant, recently redecorated and rebranded, should be a hit for the Hotel Valencia. Check out the pre and post theater menus, as this is next to the Majestic and Empire theaters.

The experience felt like the hotel seems obligated to have a restaurant but they are not committed to a quality product. Food was average and supposed to be Argentinian. Service was polite but inexperienced. The bar was where the energy was, not the restaurant.

The staff was wonderful, but the food was awful. We aren't picky eaters, but we sent everything back and didn't re-order. Octopus like shoe leather and served with nearly raw potatoes. The Parrillada meat that came out was not on a sizzling plate and was dry as a bone, and you could break your teeth on the chorizo in the brussels sprouts. The au gratin potatoes were also undercooked. Avoid this place at all costs.

I expected more. Food was ok but nothing special. Salad had no taste. Pasta was gummy and overloaded with sauce. Too many kids around and wasn’t really a good dinner experience. Not bad but nothing to rave about.

Christmas brunch

Our dinner reservations were on Christmas Eve 2017. This restaurant is new inside the hotel, having been formerly called Citrus with a completely different menu prior to a recent hotel renovation within the last year. Dorrego‘s is themed Argentinian and the food was very good. Given that Argentines love their meat, we were expecting the menu to be heavily meat based, but to our pleasant surprise it was a well-balanced menu. We ordered a bottle of champagne and the manager came out and did the presentation. They also accommodated me with some gluten free bread. Our food order did take an unusually long time and when it did arrive, the duck I ordered was cold. I did send it back to be reheated and when it was delivered the second time, it was still cold. The server handled the situation very well offering to have my plate remade, but considering how long it took to get our food, I felt like that would be a complete interruption to the flow our meal, as my boyfriend would have been eating without me or letting his food get cold in the process of waiting on mine, so I accepted the plate as it was. The manager did come by and inquire offering a complimentary dessert, neither of us were able to oblige being so full. Overall, the food was good (in spite of the duck snafu) as the shrimp dish my boyfriend ordered was good, as were all the sides we ordered, the street corn being the best among them, topped with cotija cheese. The Hotel Valencia is absolutely beautiful and the ambiance of the restaurant was well done.
