Food, ambiance and service are great, but I have to say that the restaurant does need maintenance inside and out.

Garufa was terrible. Had reservations booked through OpenTable for Valentine's Day and was hoping for a good meal and nice atmosphere. Got there and was told by the manager that they didn't have my reservation. Odd.. So I showed him my confirmation email and number and he said they don't take OpenTable reservations. He then proceeded to say that the restaurant was full (it wasn't even close) and that he couldn't help us. Didn't even try to accommodate my wife and I at all. Terrible experience that will prevent me from ever trying out Garufa

Garufa sucks! They did not honor reservations through Open Table. I received not one but several confirmations and reminders about the reservation.

This not only happened to us, but to other couples too while we were asking about our reservations.

We tried having an amazing Valentine’s night out, but Garufa ruined it. Will never go there again.

Early Valentines Date
Took my girlfriend for an early Valentines date dinner as her and I would be in different cities for Valentine’s Day.
This has been been by far one of the best restaurant experiences I have had in a very long time!
The service was absolutely amazing, the food was phenomenal and the wine list was perfect! I had the 16oz Porterhouse and my girlfriend had the 14oz NY. Wow!!! Cooked to perfection! For the wine we decided to go for something new and try an Argentinian selection since this is an Argentinian restaurant. We selected “Alma Negra M Blend” Such a wonderful red!
To close off the night we ended with a strawberry cheesecake, and of course....amazing!
Our waiter - Juan! Juan was amazing, from helping us select our wine, to always being near when needed. Very kind gentleman.
Thank you to all the staff that assisted with us as well!
Thank you Garufa for such a memorable and amazing dinner.

Definitely Garufa is one of my favorite places to dine. It's ambiance truly helps, specially when you want to have a conversation with the people you go with. Kudos Garufa!!

Wow! I found this restaurant on Yelp. As soon as my plane landed in ELP, I Yelped steak restaurants, and Garufa was on the list. I reserved a table and I am so glad I did.
Excellent service, delicious food, steak cooked just right, delicious wine, fabulous guitarist and the owner/manager walked to every table to greet his patrons and checked to see if we were satisfied with our meal and service.
Mind you, I came straight from the airport and was not dressed for the beautiful restaurant, but they made me feel right at home.
The next time I am in El Paso, I will dine here.

We have been to Garufa several times. Usually our dining experience is awesome, but this last time the experience was subpar. We typically order the 21 oz ribeye, baked potato, mushrooms, caprese salad, empanadas, and a bottle of wine. The steak is usually phenomenal, but it was just ok at our last visit - not as tender. The empanadas were tasty, but cold in the middle. The service was lacking - our waiter was inattentive. It took a while to get a wine list, overall attention to detail was off, and we felt we were treated differently than other diners.
