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. This is the third incarnation of Wrede’s original Joseph’s Table, conceived in Taos, New Mexico, not quite 20 years ago, for which he is well known and loved within the region and beyond. 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.

    The staff was friendly professional and on point! The food was really good but my biggest gripe is the entree portion was tiny. We ordered the grouper which was delicious but it was like 4 bites. We split it so it was only 2 bites each. Was tasty but for that price not enough food.

    We are veteran Joseph Wrede fans from his previous venue in Taos. For our anniversary we chose JCP from all the estimable offerings in Santa Fe. Not only only were we not disappointed, we are overjoyed to experience new heights of originality and creativity. And it's noteworthy that this restaurant is the best value for the finest, exciting cuisine, in Santa Fe--judging from an online overview and many reviews.

    My boyfriend and I visited Joseph’s at the recommendation of a local, and it was definitely worth it! The ambience was cozy but cool, and my grouper was so good. The polenta fries were also fantastic. The service was greaT. It’s slightly noisy mainly due to close tables and cappuccino machine, but that wasn’t any issue. You do need to make reservations, as there aren’t many tables. Highlight dinner of our trip!

    The food and the service here were outstanding. We split a chile relleno starter and the lamb tacos, which turned out to be plenty of food for two. Everything about both dishes was absolutely delicious. Our server was friendly and professional, and offered good suggestions for both the food and beverages. This pub has something for everyone and every budget. It’s foodie heaven, while being welcoming and unpretentious. Thank you for a lovely experience!

    We had not been to Joseph’s during the summer in a very long while but friends graced us with an unexpected gift card so we took the opportunity. Seasonal menu was outstanding and while the patio on the front is plagued by traffic and neighborhood noise, the experience was delicious.

    We loved our experience at Joseph's Culinary Pub. Kim welcomed us right away and we sat at the bar. Saharu took wonderful care of us and served us wonderful drinks and wonderful food (the lamb tartar was amazing). I also loved the Duck Pad Thai. My husband loved his lamb burger as well. We will definitely return and recommend this restaurant with bar and patio seating in addition to a charming dining room.

    We were looking forward to a great meal at the highly recommended Joseph's Culinary Pub. The greeting entering was almost dismissive. Still we were still excited to try their food. We ordered the Chicken Liver mousse, the Smoked Trout salad and the special Mahi Mahi. We ordered a rose and a rose sparkling. The rose was served at room temperature and the sparkling was served a bit cool. Moving on. The Chicken Liver mousse was excellent. The salad was slopped on the plate with large irregular chunks of trout with chucks of pear (not sliced) and stale pecans. The greens were overdressed with an uninteresting dressing. We waited at least 25 minutes for our fish entree as others around us were served as we ordered first. When served the fish was way over salted and the outside was not chewable. The manger did come and inquired of our dissatisfaction and said she would inform the kitchen. They did remove the fish from our bill. Maybe it was an off night, maybe a new chef or maybe the chef didn't show up. We won't be able to reccomend this restaurant

    From the wine selection, which is excellent, to the menu which changes frequently except for a few solid favorites, Joseph's never disappoints. In our group that had meat found it to be perfectly prepared as requested. The appetizers were fabulous and just enough to encourage more eating :-) wine was terrific and compliment to excellent meal. Service terrific and attentive. Will return!

    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.

    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.
