This dinner was our first at Joseph's. Everything we ordered was delicious. I had the swordfish special, yummy. My friend had the ratatouille and loved it. Next time in SF, we will be back for more. I want to try the fries :)

As usual, absolutely perfect. The lamb burger continues to be the best entree in Santa Fe, NM and the green chile chicken pozole was complex yet to the point. Thanks again Star and Joe.

Joseph's Culinary Pub, is full of atmosphere, sitting on the corner of Agua Fria and Montezuma it is opposite the Church of Guadalupe, or the sanctuary of Guadalupe. The staff are friendly, courteous, pleasant and helpful. The food is delicious from the house made bread, rolls, potato chips to the main meal. I was taking guests I wanted to impress and I certainly did.

I wish the wait staff had informed that the appetizer portions were large. I would have ordered less food. Too much spice on the fries. I ordered a lamb burger, Bill more than 100 dollars

I had not eaten at Joseph's since the pandemic. Wanted to dine outside here in celebration of my birthday which was acknowledged on our arrival with a complimentary drink. The seasoned housemate chips are addictive to start. We shared 2 appetizers, the Warm Charred Ratatouille & Fava Beans which were wonderful. Our entree was a Sword Fish special & equally tasty. For dessert my choice was the Butterscotch Pudding with Carmel Sauce & Sea Salt which I have had on previous visits & was glad to see it was still on the dessert menu. Gabe's & others service was friendly & outstanding. I went home thinking that it is by far one of my favorite Santa Fe restaurants.

The crispy skin chicken breast was a big disappointment--the big hunk of chicken meat was without flavor. We expected more from a $36 dish.

I had the Crispy Duck, Pad Thai Cabbage & Rice Noodles, excellent as always. Everything was prepared in a perfect balance, and the freshness of the Pad Thai played well with the succulent duck.

Staff was present but not intrusive and the outdoor seating allowed for a worry free meal.

The food and the room were excellent.

It seemed like the servers were stretched pretty thin - we occasionally got on the "are we forgotten" side of "they're giving us our space". Our server was, however, very well informed on the menu and wine/beer list and provided good service when she could.

We'll be back!

Visited during initial reopening to 25% capacity. Indoors. Initially, We sat plenty of distance from other diners. As the evening went on diners got closer and closer.
Service and food was excellent as always. Joseph’s is our favorite Santa Fe eatery skit was a real treat to eat there for our first outing!

Joseph’s is one of our all time favorite restaurants in town. We went for a patio dinner the other night- only 4 tables. We felt completely safe and were so happy to have a fantastic “normal” dinner again. They even had glass bottles of hand santitzer at each table. I wish they had a larger outdoor space to accommodate more seating during COVID restrictions. This is always one of the best meals in town. The soft shell crab tacos were divine, lamb burgers are always a winner, wine list is perfect and the service was excellent, as always. I leave here happy, satiated and like I’ve had a welcoming meal with family.

Gazpacho and my special-of-the-evening blue nose bass were fabulous. My husband would have liked a margarita, but found the French rose delightful. We both loved the ice cream. Please survive this difficult time so we can visit again.

Surprisingly innovative menu— ingredients were fresh and inspired. We had the fava bean and buffalo
Bone marrow appetizer which was delightful. The house made chips brought to the table are addictive. We almost never order steak at a restaurant anymore, but both of us were in the mood for one. It was cooked to perfection (medium rare). The sauces were classic but executed flawlessly and perfectly complemented the meat. Overall we were very pleased.
