American
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.

    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!

    Went to Taft Diaz for a belated birthday dinner. Our server Charlie was great and the ambiance was very chic. The mezcal Negroni was delicious and I really liked the savory black sesame dessert with sunchoke ice cream.

    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.

    Probably best steak and complimentary bread anywhere in El Paso. Party ordered rib eye and New York steaks medium rare. Prepared perfectly. Waiter Oscar was very good. Steaks were pricey, although includes sides of mash potatoes or fries. Overall excellent night.

    They are trying to portray themselves as fine dining. It is absolutely not. The food had no flavor, bad presentation, food pairing on the plates was bad. The steak was horrific, the seabass was disgusting, they need better chefs. Our waiter’s service was fantastic, thats the only good thing about this place. We are definitely never going back! We do not recommend this place.

    The ambiance is great, however the wait service is lacking. I visited this restaurant because a colleague recommended it. We arrived about 5 minutes early and were seated immediately. It took 10-12 minutes for us to get service from our waiter. I was about to get up and leave when they came by. I noticed a couple that was sat after us by 5 minutes get their drinks and orders put in and delivered in a timely manner. I can say with confidence that our table did not receive the same attention other tables did. Not sure if our waiter was stretched too thin, or not feeling well. Service seemed to improve towards the end of our meal. The food was good, but I don’t feel like the flavors were worth the amount I spent. Glad I was able to experience the restaurant, but I most likely will not be returning.

    The food was fantastic. I just wish they put the tacos back onto the dinner menu. They truly are the BEST tacos we have ever tasted! Our 12 year old son loves them too. The Taft Diaz salad was excellent. The meatball appetizer is fantastic! The Brussel sprouts are very good! The service and atmosphere was excellent. The ribeye was over cooked but still tasted excellent.

    The food wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t outstanding relative to other restaurants in the area. Our server, Francisco, was incredibly attentive; he gets 5 stars alone. Though the atmosphere was very engaging, I felt the price was a bit high considering what was plated. We did particularly enjoy the unique dishes served such as the crudos and deserts.

    This is, essentially, an open, hotel lobby restaurant. Our initial table was near speakers emitting music too loudly for us. Our request to switch tables was quickly and graciously accommodated. My point is not the noise; rather, the excellent and cheerful service. Our server, wine and food were all excellent. My wife ordered duck breast and reported that it was tender and tasted good, despite being considerably more cooked than one might expect with duck breast. That is the only reason for less than 5 stars for food. Should you decide to have breakfast with Taft-Díaz, do not even consider room service, as they are not setup or competent to handle it. Ours was a complete, cold food, took forever, things missing, disaster. We would, however, not hesitate to stay at Stanton House again and to DINE at Taft-Díaz.

    Cocktails were very good, as was the service. Starter was meatballs and burrata, which everyone enjoyed. Corn and truffle soup was the highlight of the meal. Server recommended the ribeye for me and scallops for wife. Scallops were chewy and too salty. Ribeye ordered medium; presentation was interesting. A couple bites were medium. The rest was medium-well to well and too tough; I gave up trying to cut it and/or chew it. Unacceptable given the price and reputation of the restaurant.
