I have wanted to go to this restaurant for sometime. I"m pleased we finally got to go. Make reservations. It's a busy little place. Atmosphere feels like you're in someone's home. Very cozy. The noise travels though and a table enjoying some wine took over the room. It was difficult to hear my friends at my own table. The menu was fun to explore and our table purchased the local salads, the fish special, meatloaf and bison. All were presented nicely and tasted wonderful. We even enjoyed some great hot teas with dessert. Unfortunately the dessert was not on the same level as the meals, atmosphere and service. The chocolate cake was dry and although I don't know the names of the other desserts, no one at my table finished theirs. They just weren't enjoyed by us. I would certainly go again and enjoy the meals!!

Our busboy was a little rough around the edges, but maybe he was just new there, and hadn’t finished training yet. One amusing example was when he returned our silverware to the table after clearing the dinner dishes, rather than taking them away with the dishes and providing fresh ones for dessert. The waiter himself was a bit on the pretentious side, though perfectly fine.

Joseph's surpassed our expectations! Such a welcoming environment and the food was prepared perfectly. Many of the dishes were those that I would not make at home... Not an enormous menu (and that's a GOOD thing) but well-balanced and described accurately. Our waiter Gabriel was very knowledgeable and friendly. I will definitely dine at Joseph's again next time I visit Santa Fe.

Our first time here. Great service, very knowledgeable about the menu. Good variety of menu items, interesting smaller plates, creative salads and entrees. I had the buffalo short ribs and they were excellent, very tender. My husband had the fish special. It was a grouper -like fish (can't recall name), and the preparation was excellent. Will definitely return.

Great place for trying unique fare , locals enjoy it from what visitors say. Wine list is fantastic although a bit overkill to have multi hundred dollar options for a daily list.

Wonderful evening at Joseph’s and Star selected the best table for our dining experience. The service by Greg K. was great and he was very attentive, knowledgeable about the menu and professional. The food was delicious, very creative and our entree, swordfish with wild rice seasoned with cranberries and apricots, was very savory. Definitely a venue that you should add to your Santa Fe experience.

We have been to Joseph's often, quite from his start in Taos, and always enjoyed his well balanced, interesting combinations, good tasting food. I would given him full outstanding on all points except for the fact that we were seated on a two person table where one of us only could look at the back wall.

My Husband and I ate at the Taos restaurant and loved it. I couldn't wait to eat at the new one in Santa Fe. I made a reservation several months in advance for our girl's trip. I was excited. We entered and loved the ambiance. We looked at the wine menu and picked a bottle. We4 all ordered from the menu and were prepared to have a fantastic dinner. We did not. I don't want to bash a restaurant that I know can do better so I will stick to what we all liked. The compound butter was very good.

It must’ve been an off night. Service was way sub par for what we are used to at Joseph’s. In addition, they serve me a warm beer and I asked for a cold one only a different kind, and they charge me for both. I guess I would’ve comped the first one if I was making a decision. Again, Joseph’s is great but we had a rough time on Friday night.
