October 16, 1909-For the first time in their country’s history, American President William H. Taft and Mexican President Porfirio Díaz met for a summit in the El Paso-Juarez border; the land commonly known as El Chamizal. Flags were lowered and the borderland remained neutral territory.

A traditional, conservative luncheon was hosted by President Taft at the El Paso Chamber of Commerce followed by an opulent dinner served and presented by President Díaz in the Old Federal Customs building in Juarez. Private discussions were had and agreements were made.

TAFT DÍAZ serves as a testament that great things can flourish when you welcome others at your table.

    We are new in town and this was our first time at this location. Not a busy place that day, only one other table was occupied Ambiance was nice. The server had a nice smile stopped to our table multiple times but miss to fill up the glasses. bone marrow was very good. Taft salad way to sweet; hot chicken tenderloin had a nice light spicy crust. Dry Aged New York came sliced, cold and overcooked. Potatoes were nothing special.

    Service was beyond excellent, food was great took off some points my rating because the rib eye we ordered was kind of cold. We didn’t return it to the kitchen which might have been our fault but thought it was worth mentioning. Drinks were fantastic as well. Charlie and Oscar made our experience very special.

    My wife and I had seen Taft Diaz on instagram. While today was not our intention to go, fate made it happen. I will start off with, there is a wait for your food after you order. Yet, this is made per order, by a chef. We were seated well, allowed to choose another menu, and made to fell comfortable as we waited. The attendant took our order by memory, and kept excellent eye contact and was engaging. The atmosphere is calm, relaxing, again.. comfortable. The food arrives, with a delicious looking presentation.. the taste is equally as delightful as the presentation. We were allowed to enjoy our company, meal, all the while not being hovered. We are returning to enjoy the New Years dinner event…This should speak for the overall experience and review. Hopefully does not disappoint, and Taft Diaz will become one of our newest top favorites to attend. Great Job Taft Diaz. This is how excellent dining should be compared.

    OpenTable worked great, always a little skeptical, we set right down and the waiter was with us quickly, ordering was a breeze, great ambiance, first course was delivered fast, second course a little slower and the waiter kept apologizing but we felt it was fine, we enjoyed the raising and lowering of the lights in the dining area. Great experience.

    First let me say the server was very nice, so nothing wrong there. We did go for Thanksgiving and I was disappointed that there was no special set holiday menu. They only had their normal menu, which is confusing as to why it was so mediocre. The appetizer was lukewarm. We asked since it was meatballs and brûlée burrata. He said the cheese was supposed to be cold. So if that’s the case it’s not good. It made the whole thing lukewarm, so unpleasant. My husband had the duck. He said it was flavorless and tough. He couldn’t even finish. It was that bad, so he ate some of mine. I had the NY strip. It was cooked correctly in the middle, but the outside was super charred. So all I could taste was burnt and bitter. We asked for 2 sides, but they were out of one which happens. The Brussels sprouts were excellent and the serving was large so enough for the both of us. Needless to say, we will not return. Very pricey for really subpar food.

    Good food, but the service was poor, careless, thoughtless. The place was nearly empty, but our server could not be bothered to make sure our order was accurate. Sadly, this is pretty much the norm in El Paso.

    Beautiful restaurant and fabulous food! I had the seared scallops and hubby had the New York. Had bone marrow appetizer and Parsnip Semifreddo for dessert! Everything from the ambience to the service with Diego to the food was divine! I loved the beautiful flower lights that descend. Wonderful anniversary celebration. I can’t wait to go back. Thank you Taft Diaz for a memorable evening!!

    Quiet and intimate for all four of us. Great lighting, don't have to repeat our conversations due to noise level, food is always a piece of art ready to be enjoyed but not before commenting on it's presentation! Love lunch specials where i don't have to over-think the numerous choices!

    The drinks were glorious! The meat and cheese board was great. The bread and compound butter were the stars of the dinner. The corn chowder was delightful according to a very picky eater. The Caesar salad was heavenly tons of umami! The scallops were tender, perfectly cooked and the risotto:wow! The pasta dish was full of flavor.
