Garufa is a steakhouse restaurant. On our first visit, we very impressed with their tenderloin steaks, their 3 toppings for their complimentary French bread, and Mexican chocolate cake from a Juarez bakery. Since Las Cruces, NM has no dine-in availability to high Covid-19 infection rates and is abysmally lacking in fine dining restaurants, we have always tried to partake of some fine dining while in El Paso. Upon perusing Garufa menu we found some interesting salads and empanadas. On this second visit, my partner stuck with steaks, a churrasco which was very tasty and tender. I tried a small* Palta salad (avocados, apples, celery, pecans, and heart of palms) with a thousand island looking dressing, quite unremarkable in execution. As an entree, I tried three seemingly interesting empanadas, humita (mozzarella, corn, and bacon bits), blue cheese (mozzarella, Roquefort, diced celery, and pecans), and camaron (shrimp, bell peppers, tomatoes, and onions) each in house made flakey empanada. Only the camaron was tasty others failed to taste up to their ingredient statement. Although their menu is well written as regards salads and empanadas, I must say that execution is wanting. So, while there are still pasta dishes to try, we think we'll, in the future, go here for steaks only.
*. NOTE: The server mentioned that their large salads as well as their pasta dishes are frequently sufficient for two people.

Another dining find in El Paso, while inside dining in New Mexico is prohibited.
Garufa, an Argentinian steakhouse was chosen mainly because it was not a Mexican restaurant.

Often a good sign that you are in for a fine dining experience is the bread. Four slices of a French bread accompanied by spreads of chimichurri, Arbol chili paste, and marinated cannot beans.

Since Las Cruces steakhouses are chains, we will have to come here for steaks once in a while. We both had their 7 oz. tenderloin, one coming in bed of mashed potatoes surrounded by red wine reduction and topped with shredded fried onions and the grilled sweet onions and a roasted jalapeno which complemented the very tender meat. We ask for additional chimichurri which made wonderful topping on the steak. We finished with marvellous chocolate cake made by Julia's in Juarez specifically for Garufa. What made this cake special was slight hint of bitter chocolate which is quite the surprise from typical chocolate frosting which are all sweet. Like Entrecote the French bistro a few blocks down Mesa, we'll be coming to El Paso again for these dining delights!

Appetizers were very good. Entrees were average at best. Service was impecable, but he did serve me very old wine by the glass that tasted like vinegar.

Excellent place to dine, either with a date or with friends. I've dined here multiple times. The tenderloin and the ribeye are delicious.

The empanadas are also a great get. However, my personal favorite appetizer has to be the sausage. It is phenomenal.

Do yourself a favor and eat at Garufa.

Food and drinks were great, the wine and food menu left us wanting more! The service was significantly slower than we expected, but staff was friendly and helpful.
Live music upstairs, would have been great to know or be seated upstairs, perhaps upon request only?
Will definitely be back again

Had an opportunity for a night out and seized it. Couldn’t be happier with our choice. Very nice and fantastic steak house. Wife is from South America (Brazil) and the churrasco took her back home. The empanadas are also a home favorite of hers and hit the spot here every time. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a nice night and aren’t afraid to pay for quality. Great care taken to make sure our night was a terrific one.

We had a wonderful dinner at Garufa. They did a great job with Covid restrictions - everyone wearing a mask, tables far apart from each other, hand sanitizers available and service was outstanding as always. Our dinner was absolutely delicious and the wine selection was great.
