Chef Joseph Wrede is a Food & Wine Best New Chef, the winner of several AAA Four Diamond Awards, several DiRoNA Awards and has received both Wine Spectator and Wine Enthusiast distinctions. Joseph’s Culinary Pub is a creation of Chef Wrede and his creative and business partners.

Joseph’s Culinary Pub is designed to be a platform for Chef Wrede’s unique and uncompromising vision on traditional and contemporary cuisine, both regional and international. Regarding the restaurant as a process much like theater, Wrede envisions the experience of dining in his restaurant as an interactive play between the pub and the public, with his sights aimed at rivaling high art.

                                              Excellent food preparations. My whole trout best I've had in Santa Fe. The look liver mouse great. My husband's Thai bowl was not up to fresh pad thai. None the less we'll be back. It was cold with the a/c beating down on us.

                                              Highly recommend Joseph's for the entire experience. Was greeted warmly upon arrival. The dinner service from that point only got more exceptional as far as friendliness, professionalism and perfect balance of attentiveness and giving space. Food was wonderful! I ordered a lot, so I should know. Started with the Chicken Liver Mousse and the Crispy Queso Fresco Tamale. My main was the Joseph’s 8oz. Steak Au Poivre just cooked medium rare to perfection. Finished with the Traditional Orange Vanilla Flan and a cup of espresso. The evening was absolutely wonderful in a great setting. Wouldn't hesitate to come here nor order anything on the menu.

                                              Had heard about Joseph’s from an old friend, so went with my wife for our our anniversary when visiting Santa Fe. Everything was as good as we had heard — great time, great food, great service, great ambiance!

                                              Sometimes u just want the flavors to surprise you and to stop u mid chew. This happened for me here. I felt the insanity of the world fade away. Suddenly I was in the moment w my meal from beginning to end. I floated home grateful to Joseph’s for reminding me of the simple pleasures to be had ( because of the hard work and genius of others). Going back tonight.😉

                                              We asked for a quiet table, and we’re accommodated with a corner table in a room separate from the bar area. Very pleasant. The menu is fascinating - tough to choose what to try. We had several dishes, splitting each one among the three of us. That worked well - got to try more of the interesting menu items. We had the polenta sticks with grilled radicchio and Gorgonzola dolce for a starter, followed by trout and pear salad. Both delicious. Then we shared two mains: the vegetable enchilada, and root vegetable layered thing (forgot the term). Herbs and spices used judiciously and to max effect. This was a really creative and special meal. Service was pleasant and knowledgeable, altho a little slow.

                                              The food was unique culinary with options for all. The staff was the best part. Loved the duck fat fries and the pork tenderloin. Butterscotch pudding a must.

                                              Great dinner…. Imaginative menu, nice ambiance. Didn’t feel as touristy a spot as so many restaurants in Santa Fe. We especially enjoyed the trout, pear, and arugula salad shared as a starter. Make reservations for sure, a winner.

                                              Fabulous fine dining experience! 5/5 across the board! We opened with the duck french fries, my date had the grouper while I had the lamp and we shared some tres leches for dessert. All were superb! We have enjoyed Joseph's during previous visits and plan to repeat it again and again!

                                              The food was very good and the service was excellent. The room was noisy and it was difficult to talk and be heard.

                                              We have dined here for years, every time we come to Santa Fe. Last night, while good, wasn’t as good as our previous experiences. We felt dishes were under seasoned in the case of an appetizer and our salads, and over seasoned for the lamb ribs in particular. Service was great, wines were delicious and well priced as usual. We will be back, but we were somewhat disappointed this visit.

                                              Four of us visiting from Oakland, CA and the UK enjoyed our dinner a great deal. We had six dinners during our stay in Santa Fe ranging from reasonable to very expensive. Our dinner at Joseph's we all felt was the best. We appreciated the host noticing that we were bothered by noise. She had us moved to a quieter table. We appreciated our efficient, friendly and informative waitress a great deal. And then the food, of course, was very special. All our dishes from variious parts of the menu, plus delicious desserts, and not one disappointment. It was our final dinner in Santa Fe, but Joseph and your excellent crew, it won't be our last. Thank you.

                                              The only thing we liked was the starter--tuna tartar. I won't go into detail about the main courses, but I cook better food than what we had here. Disappointed. Service was so-so, unfriendly. Writing this one off the list.

                                              Had intended to visit Joseph's the last couple of times we had been in Santa Fe and just didn't get around to it. Too bad. Joseph's will definitely be on our must do list from now on. Decor was great, service was excellent, and the food of course was fantastic. The chicken liver mousse was so amazing, and our green chili lamb burgers were perfect. We used to own over 200 ewes and raise at lot of lambs each year, and the local lamb used at Joseph's was as good as it gets.

                                              Don't come to Santa Fe without eating at Joseph's! Try the lambburger with sheep cheese and green chili....finish with the flan....leave content.

                                              Visiting Santa Fe with spouse. I was at the restaurant a week ago with friends and went back because I knew my wife would like the duck confit pad thai. I had the striped bass special, which was excellent. The main room is noisy, however.

                                              We like to try a new restaurant e couple of times a month. This was our first time at Joseph’s Culinary Pub. The decor was slightly rustic but charming. The menu was rather diverse and that caused my MIL some trouble choosing a meal, but she finally decided that the pork special might work as a main course. We chose the duck fat fries as an appetizer and enjoyed it. I chose the lamb curry, my wife chose the vegetable Napoleon, and my daughter chose the lamb confine pad Thai. All loved their main course. The desserts (and most of the rest of the menu) was gluten free which I appreciated. My wife and MIL had the “Tres Leches” cake and I had the cloud cake, both largely meringues, and we loved it. Service was very good.

Thank you for making it such a special time for us.
