Joseph's keeps getting better and better // Chef is at his best when a few dishes take risks in flavor combinations and use of spices // Makes the dining experience more fun for all //
Service was remarkable // From Starr running the front of the house to Leia as our wait person,
everything is done very well // Great variety in menu choices // Something for everyone //

Great menu, inventive and tasty food. Good wine selections by the glass. Portions are reasonable. A bit expensive, though, $200 dinner for three people (3 glasses of wine)

Great restaurant. Service terrific- friendly hostess, knowledgeable server. Our selections- chili poppers and a vegetarian enchilada for my wife, and lamb tartare and duck confit for me- were well prepared and presented. The food was accompanied by a lovely wine from their ample menu; there is also an excellent selection of beers available. All I all a lovely evening.

One of our favorite places for a special evening. Always a good fish special. Had the Corvina this time--excellent. Hubby had the beef tenderloin which he loved. We also shared the Tuna Poke and would do that again for an entree--delicious! Molly, our server is our favorite. We go early when it is quiet, so don't know if it gets noisy later on in evening.

This restaurant is at some distance from the main Plaza, across the river. But it is still a manageable walk from the center of town. (The walk takes you by the Guadalupe chapel, which is of interest, incidentally.). Joseph’s is in an older one-story building and has that sense of age so common in Santa Fe. The interior is comfortable. What stood out for me was the chicken baked under a brick. It was the most moist, flavorful chicken breast I have ever eaten. That dish alone fully merits dining here.

First time hit

My friend and I were in Santa Fe and decided to try Joseph's. I knew Mr. Wrede from his days in Taos but had never dined in this Santa Fe venue. We were anticipating a lovely meal and were not disappointed. The service was outstanding. The dining room staff seems to operate as a team. We were visited by all but one person on the floor and all were personable and professional. The ambiance of the restaurant is casually elegant but still small enough to be cozy, and the clientele seemed pleased to be there. As out-of-towners, it seemed to us that most diners were local and return customers. We shared plates, starting with the vegetable enchilada and finishing with chicken under a brick. That the kitchen would split entrees (without a split-plate charge!) was a lovely surprise and made for beautiful presentation. The only drawback to the food was the chicken which seemed as if it had sat under a heat lamp too long --dry chicken and polenta and almost crispy spinach. The wine we selected, a white Cote du Rhone was a good choice for the wine list and for us. We also noted that wines by the glass were about 1/4 the price of a whole bottle. We had a whole bottle but saw generous pours for those around us who ordered single glasses. All in all, we were very pleased. I can hardly wait for my husband to try Joseph's. Thank you.

I've been visiting and eating in Santa Fe for a couple of decades at this point (lived here full time for a year in the '00s) and Joseph's is my current favorite place by far (and one of my all time favorites as well). With all that Santa Fe offers, this will be the second trip in a row that we spend two evenings with Joseph's food. Give it a try!

Joseph's is the place to go if you want both nutritious and delicious food. The cook goes way out of his way to use local, organic ingredients. He is very health conscious and uses olive oil and butter for cooking—-no corn, soy, or canola oil. I highly recommend this restaurant to my friends and to my patients who want to eat healthy food exclusively.

Was highly recommended but we were disappointed with the menu choices. Everyone was very friendly and the service was good too. Casual and unpretentious atmosphere. A family with little children were there and very comfortable. Certainly not bad but not great either.

Some of the best food in Santa Fe in my opinion. We visited during Restaurant Week so the price was great. It can be expensive ordering a la carte. Loved the appetizers: a tuna poke and an arugula salad. I had the always marvelous vegetable napoleon -- flaky pastry crust, goat cheese and the most delicious and varied selection of vegetables. My husband had the prime rib -- more than enough for one person (he brought half of it home). He admired the horseradish sauce and he is a snob about horseradish! And, desserts! The butterscotch pudding is like nothing you have ever had -- don't miss it. My husband had the chocolate maquise cake and was swooning. The restaurant was very busy so the service was slightly scattered but every server was courteous and helpful.

Enjoyed another wonderful meal at .Joseph's. Went during restaurant week, so it was quite busy. I wanted to try everything on the menu, but unfortunately I could eat only so much. One friend at the table got the Mahi which was cooked perfectly, truly amazing. I'm not a big fan of desserts, but the cloud cake was light and, well, cloud-like. Can't wait to go back, again and again.

For my entrée I ordered the duck confit , and expected it to be luscious and succulent. Instead it was dry and chewy, and I was very disappointed!

The appetizer that I had, the tuna poke, was excellent and I would recommend that again in a heartbeat!

I had a most fabulous meal at Joseph’s in Taos a number of years back, and came to his Santa Fe table expecting something similar. I’m not sure if I will go again or not; my dining companions were happy with their meals and only mine was subpar…

We were a group of 5. Overall the food was great. The breading on the jalepeno poppers was a bit heavy and soggy. We would have liked to have had the option of having plain horseradish instead of only creamstyle. The dinner rolls were so yummy. A couple of us ordered our prime rib rare, but rare was not an option that night; although what we received was still tasty and tender. We would especially like to highlight the outstanding service by our waiter Jessie as well as his assistants. The ambiance, atmosphere and decor is very appealing. We'll definitely be back.
