" On April 12, 2018, I had a Rehersal Dinner for my son at El Farol. The entire process was amazing from beginning to end. We went to Santa Fe in October, 2017 to find a place for the Rehersal Dinner. We both wanted the flavor of Santa Fe as well as the Cuisine of Santa Fe. El Farol fit the bill perfectly! I loved Freda, the moment I met her. She is so kind and friendly and helpful. More importantly, she offered us a tasting of the Tappas she serves. Everything we tasted was so good and beautifully presented! Our mind was made up!

As the time got closer to have the dinner, I had conference calls with Freda. We texted and emailed back and forth. Her communication was always prompt and precise. I was planning the Rehersal Dinner from Fort Worth, Texas which made the planning a little more difficult, but Freda's response to every worry or concern or question or change that I had was " No worries! I will take care of that."

When I walked into the restaurant on Thursday Night everything was perfect. The tables were beautifully arranged. She met both the florist and the AV people to help get those things in place. That night the food was beautifully presented and so good! The chef did an amazing job and noone left hungry. 

A restaurant is only as good as the people that run it and the chef that makes the food delicious. El Farol is a home run in both areas! Don't miss this "jewel" of a restaurant. If you are planning any kind of event and you want a friendly coordinator, an incredible wait staff, and amazing food....El Farol should be on the top of your list. Thank you, Freda and Max, all the wait staff and their amazing chef! Everything was perfect!"

“ This client is certainly happy about the offsite catering in my home this past Saturday. Freda had suggested that the head chef would come, but I was totally surprised that not only did the Head Chef show up, but so did Freda Scott (General Manager) and Stephen Walsh (Sous Chef) and Luis Miramontes (Server) for the entire event. The set up and service was immaculate. They are a wonderful group of people. Then there is the food. The Polenta with chef’s own Romesco sauce was the favorite. But the other tapas, shrimp and pork were amazing too. Don’t forget to try the flourless chocolate torte. Anyway, my guests loved it and so did I. I will call on Freda again.”

“I truly enjoyed working at El Farol. Freda handled my bride’s every need and the margaritas we’re a hit! ”

“We chose El Farol for our son’s rehearsal dinner last December. It was an incredible experience. We live in Houston and never frequented the restaurant or Santa Fe for that matter. Freda Keller held my hand all the way from helping with decorations, sound and video equipment to planning the delicious menu. The event was perfect. Free and her staff took care of every detail and everyone had a wonderful time. I would highly recommend El Farol. The food is fabulous and the staff is professional and efficient.”
