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.

Horrible experience!!! We went for Valentines Day and waited 35 minutes before we even got our first glass of wine. They sat us in a make shift table that was in the hallway of the hotel. Food was not good either. Just makes me sick that they charge as much as they do and provide horrible food and service. Will never recommend this place to anyone.
My boyfriend and i came here for a valentines dinner only to expect the worst. Our reservation was at 7:45pm only to be seated at 8pm. We didn’t get offered wine only water which was strange and very rude. We waited a while for the course to be given to us, and we were at the restaurant for almost 3 hours to finish!!! We were furious because a table sitting next to us got sat and were given their course of meal in a matter of 30 minutes and left before us. I think our server just had too many tables and wasn’t keeping up. For almost spending $300 that night was not worth it. We will not be returning.
Food was good and ambiance was brilliant but overpriced for the service and food quality. Waiter messed up several times and we were kept waiting excessively long. Valentine’s Day menu was good but definitely overpriced compared to other high end restaurants in El Paso. Was also never informed that the regular menu would not be available that night as the reservation gave the option of regular menu or the special menu when booking.
We waited for our food courses for over 4 hours . I sat in the most uncomfortable chair you could imagine for 4 and a half hours. Food was okay.
Overbooked, long wait between courses. Food great and staff really busy and forget some time about our food or drinks, but they really try to be courteous
We arrived at 7pm for our reservation, we left at 12am. This is not an exaggeration. This was for their Valentines dinner. Now I can understand being a bit overwhelmed. But there is a point where you go from overwhelmed to incompetence and that usually is around the 2 hour mark let alone the 5 hour mark. We didn’t drink anything other than water until the 45 min mark. I guess our fault for not getting up and leaving.
We were blown away from start to finish!! The tasting menu for their Valentines Day Dinner was just so well executed, different savory flavors that just blew away your taste buds!
Exceptional food, but service should be better in a high class restaurant. Server never mentioned any specials or what the catch of the day was. Also, don't add the parking cost to the tab and then calculate the tips amounts based on a gross amount including parking.
Hi John, thank you so much for the review. We are happy to hear you enjoyed the food and are taking steps to ensure that service matches the quality in the future. The generated gratuity suggestions on your receipt shouldn't include valet cost, only food and alcohol but we will look into the issue to verify. If you plan on visiting us in the future please ask for me, Cameron, and I'd be happy to make sure you have a satisfactory & memorable experience. All the best, Cameron
We went there for New Year’s Eve dinner. They canceled my reservation and I had to call them to get it reinstated. Also, they automatically charged us 47.00 gratuity fee, it was just me and my husband! We were not told about the automatic gratuity charge, so my husband ended up tipping almost $100 that night!! Was pretty upsetting, I feel like they were ripping people off by not telling us the automatic gratuity fee! Will never go back.
Hi William, we do understand your concerns and apologize for any misunderstandings. If you could please give us a call at 915-271-3600 and ask to speak with Cameron, we would be happy to correct the issue. We do sincerely hope you still had a wonderful new year's eve and look forward to hearing from you soon. All the best, Cameron Taft Diaz
Everything was exquisite, from beginning to end. The service was top-notch, but not intrusive. The Japanese whiskey was intensely flavorful without being overwhelming. Our favorite appetizer was the parsnip tamal with mole sauce, and the arugula salad is a great value and quite filling with the addition of quinoa, tomato, cucumber, etc. The pasta was perfectly al dente, and the mango mousse dessert was light and tart, and not overly heavy or sweetened like most desserts. Even the focaccia bread was the most soft I’ve ever had and delicious with the chimichurri butter. When you want to treat yourself, this is the place to go in downtown El Paso.
Hi Natt, thank you so much for the kind words. We are happy to hear you enjoyed your experience with us at Taft Diaz. We'll be sure to have more Japanese whisky ready for your next visit, cheers! All the best, Taft Diaz
We went on Christmas Day. Setting is great, really upscale and fine dining atmosphere; we had the Christmas special dish which was good, but I would not consider it a fine dining dish (based on my experiences with fine dining in European restaurants). It was a lot of food on the plate, not the experience I would expect for that price. One of us had a regular main course and that was better.
Had a nice birthday lunch with family.
Excellent food !
El servicio fue pésimo, a nuestra llegada no habia hostess, tuvimos que pedir que alguien nos atendiera, despues de unos minutos nos contesto una señorita que esperaramos (por que estaba platicando con el hostess) obviamente su platica era muy importante. Al sentarnos nuestro mesero muy poco cortés, poca atención a nuestra mesa, de verdad el servicio fue fatal. Lamentablemente como todo mal mexico-americano se esmeraba en las mesas con personas americanas, evidentemente nos dejaba al ultimo a los latinos.
Es triste que el esfuerzo de tus chefs, managers, etc se vea opacado por un mal servicio.
Amo la cocina abierta, amo verlos en accion, la comida muy bien, al igual que la presentación.
Nobody to greet you at entrance, sign to seat yourself. One waiter who hardly spoke, made no suggestions and didn’t even care to offer more of anything, much less dessert. We understand they are obviously not busy for lunch from the three tables they had, but was very disappointed with service. Ordered cocktail which took no less that 15 minutes bartender was somewhere not at his post. Food was delicious as always but not worth the slowest lack of service experience.
Gracias por una excelente atención y servicio y por el detalle del pastel de zanahoria como regalo por nuestro aniversario.
What a gem this restaurant was, we celebrated our 1 year anniversary and couldn’t have been happier with the restaurant choice and food.
Great tasting menu. Sat at Chef's table for anniversary dinner. Adam was our server. The wine list is comparable to Cafe Central with an extensive collection of hard to find Mexican wine. While not all the tasting choices were home runs- I applaud the effort and would definitely go back. Reminds me of tasting experiences in bigger cities (Chicago, San Fran).
Great food and drink
Family from out of town
Only place to take out of town guests
Amazing and surprising tastes. Beautiful set up . Great to see the kitchen on action!
Celebrated my husbands 50th birthday with seven course meal..... absolutely delicious.
Our waitress Jackie was checking on us repeatedly and made sure we were happy with the incredible ravioli's and octopus we were served. I have been there several times and the staff has always been incredible.
Good as always
My husband and another couple went out to dinner to Taft-Diaz this past Sunday. This was my second time dining in Taft-Diaz, for them was their first time. My first dining experience was really great. This time was a disaster. The drinks served were not as ordered. One of the drinks request was with Malibu rum and was prepared and served with regular rum. Their bar inventory doesn't match the quality and price tag of their business. The most important thing for us, the customer is for the waitress to accurately inform us on what's not available instead of them making their own substitutions.... very disappointing! The food was not great and the service was poor. I ordered the arugula salad and the veggie mole, not impressed. I'd not give Taft-Diaz another chance. Thanks.
Web went for breakfast, the service by Cameron was wonderful so was the food
Our server was knowledgeable and helpful. Dishes complex and well plated, the White Onion Cream Soup was specially pleasing with surprising flavors.
Service was very “off”. Forgot 2 salads and a desert for our table. The cut of ribeye we had had no business @ $50.
This restaurant has a nice cozy atmosphere, in the lobby of the Stanton House Hotel. The service is great, very attentive. The food is very good. A little pricey, but well worth it.
Had the Family together for our Anniversary dinner and everything was amazing. Highly recommend dining here!
Went there for date night, and had an awesome time. The staff tried really hard to create a comfortable environment and pleasant experience. The food was excellent and I plan on returning frequently in the future
The service was impeccable, the art installations were beautiful, and the food was amazing. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone in the El Paso area looking for a nice date night.
Excellent Food and Service
Pleasantly surprised by a wine tasting event. Creative food with subtle but artfully arranged flavors, beautiful pairings and fantastic staff.
We had a private event at the chef’s table last night and it was outstanding! The special menu created for the occasion is without a doubt of the highest caliber. The Snake River farms rib eye was one of the best cuts of meat I have had the pleasure of enjoying. I would highly recommend giving Taft Diaz the opportunity to share their culinary talents which are second to none.
Great location, decor, food and service. Ideal for special occasions
The new seasonal menu was very interesting and the food was delicious, we'll definitely keep coming back.
Our experience at Taft Díaz was a great one! The food was amazing and the service was outstanding. We can’t wait to go back!
Absolutely fabulous! The food was amazing...and the entire staff did an excellent job ....wonderful customer service.
Wonderful service, atmosphere, and food.
