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.

Fantastic and JCP is now right atop our list of best restaurants in Santa Fe, along with Sazon. Everything about it is gourmet. One of the most creative and interesting menus I have seen in a long time. If you love flavors, you will enjoy Joseph’s.

Cute cute place once we found it on foot… not locals so it’s kind of tucked away. Female bartender was super attentive & informative while we waited for our table. Waitress energetic& very knowledgeable about the menu. Food was amazing, absolutely amazing and that is a from a trained chef who is extremely hard to impress:)

One of my favorite restaurants in Santa Fe. This is the one experience that was short of 5 stars. Girlfriend and I are 28- she was carded while I was not. This was a last minute reservation so she left her purse at home and was denied. Would understand us both not being allowed to drink but considering we are the same age and one is carded there is clearly an opportunity for bias. Will be back, just soured our date night.

It had been several pandemic years since we had last eaten at Joseph's. While our memories of the restaurant were positive, we were thrilled with our meal last evening. Every dish was delicious and in some way unusual. The service was excellent. Our waitress Kira and the team of busboys and others who worked with her meant everything arrived in a timely way with a smile.

We will be back soon with friends to show off one of best restaurants in town.

Food is wonderfully original. I haven't had a bad meal yet. The smoked trout salad was fresh and interesting with arugula, pears, pomegranate, walnuts, trout. Large portions and reasonable prices. Lots of choices.

My son and I had dinner on New Year’s Day and everything was top notch! We started with the duck fat fries, and followed with a bowl of the curry carrot and crab soup which was sheer bliss. For our entrées, my son had the braised short rib dinner from the nightly specials and I had the root vegetable napoleon. Both meals were absolutely delicious, beautifully presented and just the right portion. We finished with the butterscotch pudding and basil ice cream - so yummy. Our server was knowledgeable and friendly. What a great way to kick off 2022! We can’t wait to come back.

Everything was perfect, the timing which we ask our waitress to control from our opening New Years Eve toast, our starters then dinner through dessert and coffee. The wine was Sancerre and perfect. Highly recommend this restaurant.

Amazing food and wonderful ambiance. The chef is truly talented! Presentation was stunning and the chef has chosen to use handmade wood-fired ceramics for serving, which adds a unique element.

Love this Pub!
Really like the levels of food size-appetizers, small plates and grande…
Duck fat fries are worth the calories!!!!duck pad Thai-unusual but delish. Rabbit bolognese a must!

My husband and I ate at Joseph’s for my birthday. This was our first time dining here and it won’t be our last. The food and service were outstanding. I especially loved the cozy, quiet atmosphere. Even tough it was crowded, they did a great job of not making it feel overwhelming. Joseph’s Culinary Pub will become a must for all of our future visits to Santa Fe.

Out of this world! Creative! My sister and I shared 4 appetizers. We thought next time we would share 2 appetizers and one entree. We particularly enjoyed the liver pate and the ratatouille. Servings are generous and artfully displayed. We also had the cloud dessert. It was fun and interesting. Love this place!

Our “go-to” restaurant in Santa Fe. We’re local, so we get to “Joe’s” frequently. Consistently “great” cuisine, super service & eclectic vibe & decor. Intimate bar with full dining service & great selection of wines. A Santa Fe restaurant not to be missed!!!

Food was salty or had minimal taste. We hardly touched one dish but the server didn’t pay enough attention to ask about it. Not too bad for Santa Fe.

For nearly 30 years, Joseph's has been a favorite of mine, and it remains so - wonderful...always something new and delightful, and some old favorites remain on the menu: ie., polenta fries with gorgonzola cream and radicchio. The orange blossom tres leches cake was fabulous! It was very popular on this Friday eve, so noisy at first (7:00 pm) but then it quieted down before too long. Reliably excellent.

This was our first time at JCP although we have lived in Santa Fe for 4 1/2 years. Our mistake! Everything was very good from the moment we were led to our table in this charming dining room. Service was very good from the moment we sat down to the end of our dinner. Flavors of our appetizers, entrees, and desserts were a wonderful fusion of tastes. We had different appetizers (my wife had a glorious looking tamale, I had the chicken liver mousse that came with a delightful assortment of crackers, toast, and duck liver flavored chips to serve as a foundation for the mousse) and we both had the duck confit pad Thai style which was wonderful and plentiful. Again, we chose different desserts: my wife had a chocolate torrine and I had the Tres Leches cake. I have never had a cake that literally dissolved in my mouth - meringue included. We both had coffee - black for my wife and cappuccino for me. The coffee, from a local coffee provider was a great ending to our dinner.

We will be back well before another 4 1/2 years unfolds.
