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.

    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.

    Excellent good. We nearly always start with the corn and truffle soup. We also got the pasta (delicious), black cod over lentils (so flaky and moist), the NY strip, and the Happy Bird. All entrees were well made and beautifully prepared, with wonderful flavors. Cocktails are complex and tasty. I went with the desert rain.

    This restaurant has nice decor and interesting lights. The service we received from Rene was excellent. The food was tasty and the margaritas were good too. The valet parking was convenient since parking can be a challenge in downtown El Paso. This is an upscale restaurant with upscale prices, but ideal for special occasions.

    I had high hopes for Taft Diaz but was left disappointed overall. The Muscles were amazing as was the bread and butter. I had the Sea Bass and was very underwhelmed with the lack of flavor, which sucks because the presentation was gorgeous. My wife had to send back the scallops because they were not cooked all the way through but she enjoyed them once they came back. The desserts, much like my sea bass, looked cool and different but ultimately lacked flavor. Overall the atmosphere was really cool but it was quite cramped and the food did not match the ambiance (or the price)
