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.
Food was exceptional. Must try the bizarre but delicious carrot dog. All our entrees where as beautifully presented as they were delicious. Highly recommend.
Outstanding food and excellent service!!
We visited on a crowded Sat. night. It was loud, but everyone was having a good time. Food, service and wine was great. A popular place.
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.
The food was magnificent, such an interesting blend of tastes and textures.
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.
We have dined at Joseph's a number of times. The food did not disappoint and the service was exceptional. Joseph's version of green chile stew was outstanding.
Good vegetarian option.
Service was good and food was fresh and flavorful.
I only had the chicken green pose because I wasn't very hungry, but it was tasty and creative without straying from the traditional recipe. Yummy!
Excellent restaurant. Probably one of the best meals we have had in Santa Fe. Will definitely return on our next visit.
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!
Culinary excellence. Balanced, clean food prepared with expertise.
Unique and interesting menu choices. I particularly loved the bone marrow appetizer and the cloud cake.
This has turned into a Santa Fe old reliable. Food is always good even if portions are too large.
The atmosphere is warm and charming.
We have always had Anne as our server. She is attentive helpful.
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.
Amazing food and great wine, this is the perfect place for late night eating.
Simply taste bud tantalizing. Every time! Thank you for another memorable evening.
The food here is outstanding!!! Everything we ordered was delicious!
Enjoyed a wonderful meal with excellent service and a quiet atmosphere. Would rate it 5 stars if they offered Coke or Pepsi products for those who prefer that as an option with their meals.
Had a wonderful meal at Joseph's. The lamb burger was incredible. I appreciate that they have a mix of pricing and choices on the menu.
And, the ambience is cozy and intimate.
Food was excellent. Service was very good, but a Little slow, possibly because it is restaurant week. Unfortunately, it’s An expensive restaurant So I can only go there on special occasions.
Great menu with lot's of variety. Food was outstanding. Entire experience was well done.
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.
The food was very good. We were not rushed through dinner. Enjoyed it all.
Extremely disappointing. Should avoid. Service is strange. We had what was supposed to be steak au poivre. Not sure what you the meat was but it tasted strange.
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…
Awesome three course meal during restaurant week.
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.
Perfect evening to enjoy a birthday dinner. Great food and excellent staff made the evening extra ordinary!
Superb as always: what a treat! Joseph Wrede is a god; his wife a creative genius; his staff a team of upbeat, on-the-ball, beautiful people who LOVE his food.
My delicious bone marrow was stunningly served on a handmade plate by potter,
LOgan Wanamaker from Taos . As was a beautifully prepared sword fish on Risoto with an amazing Sauce .. YUm.
The servers were helpful and professional dispite a very busy. Night durning Restaurant Week.
Joseph's is a special place with interesting, beautifully presented food. He cares.
Excellent experience! Love the food, atmosphere and people! This is a great place to eat or just hang out for wine and snacks!!!!
We thought Joseph's was fabulous, even better than Geronimo's. Healthy portions, great tasting food, sweet ambiance. What can I say? Oh, and the staff were friendly and funny.
