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.

Surprisingly innovative menu— ingredients were fresh and inspired. We had the fava bean and buffalo
Bone marrow appetizer which was delightful. The house made chips brought to the table are addictive. We almost never order steak at a restaurant anymore, but both of us were in the mood for one. It was cooked to perfection (medium rare). The sauces were classic but executed flawlessly and perfectly complemented the meat. Overall we were very pleased.

Very good food. Joseph himself made the call the kitchen could serve us jalepeno poppers even though they are not on the menu. Lamb burger was delicious as was my wife's veggie enchilada.

Most Creative Chef in Town!

So glad to return to Joseph’s.
Their food is regularly among the most creative in Santa Fe. Happily, it is also delicious and well-presented. The servers are invariably personable and professional. The ambience is peaceful and artistic. The wine list is extensive and approachable.
Don’t miss it!

This was our first time going out to eat in over 3 months. We were unsure how we would feel with servers wearing masks and the uncertainty coronavirus has added to our lives. Once seated, though, we felt very comfortable. Tables were very well spaced from each other. Servers were very conscious of standing back from the table, wearing masks, and coming in only briefly to either place items on or remove items from our table. The food was as wonderful as we remembered. We splurged and each got our own dessert, too. It felt festive and I was uplifted to see people enjoying themselves while still feeling safe and cared for by the professional respect shown by the staff at the restaurant. We will go back again!

Food we ordered was vegetarian. It was good, not outstanding, and not what I’d expect for the price. The chocolate dessert was especially disappointing. It’s was listed as a cake but was actually fudge.

Dinner, wine, and dessert was all good enough, although for the price I did not feel it was totally worth it. The chicken under a brick was perfection, but the accompanying side and my trout salad were just ok. What was truly unfortunate was the service. We didn’t have anyone come to our table for 20 min, I only knew about the specials because I overheard our waitress telling the couple a few tables over, and the worst was that we were seated in the walkway where every single person in or out hit my chair. It ended up being comical by the end, but I won’t be returning.

Sublime food in a very authentic setting that feels very much of the place, Santa Fe, mixed with vibes of France. That goes for the influence of the exquisite fare. Best dining experience in Santa Fe so far.

Restaurant week in Santa Fe. Tried Joseph’s for the first time and thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. Nice serving sizes, very nice presentation, delicious food and excellent service. I had crab carrots soup with curry which was well sized appropriate temperature and delicious. For the main course Buffalo meatloaf which was quite good. Dessert was a butterscotch cream also excellent. Others in my party had the cloud cake which he described as the best he’s ever had. Ambience was quite nice, though just a bit crowded. All in all wonderful dinner

We attended Joseph's during Restaurant week. My husband had the lamb banana curry and I had the mahimahi. Both dishes did not disappoint. The mahimahi had a delicious, crunchy spinach side under the fish, which was accompanied by parsnip puree and topped with crab. We had a bone marrow appetizer and the smoked trout salad to start - the bone marrow was a clear stunner. The wine list is wonderful. This was our first time visiting the restaurant - we would definitely return.

We went to Joseph's Culinary Pub on Santa Fe Restaurant Week -- our first visit to Joseph's. Loved the food. The ambiance is like an English Pub which I loved. Our waitress was good and efficient but could have been friendlier. Everyone else was very friendly and helpful. I had the mahi mahi and it was cooked so well, it melted in my mouth. My husband had the brick chicken which was great--he said it was so good and very tender. Going backwards, the appetizers were great. I had the Hawaiian ahi tuna and my husband had the carrot curry crab soup. Both were delicious. We were surprised at how large the portions were.
For dessert I had the butterscotch pudding with caramel topping and he had the chocolate dessert. Great. Best meal we've had so far in Santa Fe. We'l be back.

The food is always great here. Inventive but not too Avant garde. Everyone at our table really enjoyed their meal. Chicken liver mousse is delicious. Tuna tartare with mango always stellar. One friend had the bone marrow and devoured it. Don't miss having the butterscotch pudding for dessert-- a signature dish and like nothing of the same name you've had before. Wine by the glass is a wee bit expensive.

Was really disappointed because we tried to change our reservation for 2 to a reservation for 4. We called but they said no. We cancelled with friends and decided to use our reservation for 2 and when we got there they seated us at a 4 top table. 😣
The portions were very small, the tables very close together, the noise level high. These are not things I think you should have to deal with when you are paying so much money!! This isn't a place we will go back to.

We are very sorry you were disappointed with your meal with us. You dined during Santa Fe Restaurant Week, one of our busiest weeks of the year. We offer a 3 course menu for $45 thus, portions are a bit smaller, but not by much. I can assure you that the only 2 top that was sat on a 4 top was a reservation who booked for 4 people but arrived with only 2 due to illness. Every other table was sat at max capacity. We hope you try us again when we are not running a promotion.

Joseph's has an outstanding, really interesting, and highly varied menu. We just had to choose blindly, and much of what we chose was truly memorable. We were allowed to have two appetizers in place of the dessert, which was a kindness, and all of the staff were very kind. My only complaint is I had been there a week earlier and had the sweet and spicy duck, which I was looking forward to again because it was on the Restaurant Week menu. When we got there, however, is was not among the entree selections. I am looking forward to the coming availability of lunch.
