Superb service and staff (perhaps the best trained staff I have seen) but menu is limited and overbearing fussy gourmet/foodie and ridiculously overpriced with a comfortable casual "chic" setting. Don't dress up for dinner here. As you might expect with such a menu, portions are generally small and a la carte, the smallest garnish exaggerated. "Chicken under stone" had a large portion but was simply roast chicken and rather dry with an overly sweet rice from the added cherries. The short rib was (to me) a small cut of a thick pot roast with bbq sauce and was accompanied by a "deconstructed" tostada. To the non-gourmand this means chips, chopped tomatoes and various chopped spices - a strange combination and not very good. The chocolate mouse desert was tasty, but overpriced at $15 with "creme anglais" which looked suspiciously like a teaspoon of milk cream that you might put in your coffee . Personally I would prefer simple whipped cream. The French press coffee was excellent.

Both meals were awesome. My wild rice with cranberries is something I'll try at home. And our waitress, Saharu, was wonderful. She explained every special, checked with the chef about the carrot soup ingredients for me and was very friendly and fun to talk with.

We discovered Joseph’s recently. We had been regulars at Arroyo Vino but now find the new menu lackluster and bland. Joseph is creative and willing to season to individual tastes. We’ve been twice and find it hard to decide from all the great choices. Highly recommended!!

This was our best meal in Santa Fe. I'm not a vegetarian (indeed I started with the excellent roasted bone marrow and mushrooms), but the vegetable Napoleon sounded so intriguing I had to try it. It was great - full of flavor and inventive. This restaurant may be modest in its decor, but the cooking is first rate. The waitstaff was also very pleasant and attentive. It's really worth going outside of the tourist area to get to this gem.

The food was delicious and they have a great wine list. I also want to commend their customer service: I left my sunglasses there when we dined and called the next day to see if they had found them. They called back promptly, confirmed they had the glasses, and took great care of them until I was able to return two days later to pick them up. Thank you Joseph’s!

We went for my husband's birthday, and really enjoyed our evening. The food is quite good and the service was lovely. We would recommend this to anyone looking for a higher quality dining experience than the tourist-y places - what you might find near the plaza.

Menu selection was disappointment. We were a party of 4 and we were underwhelmed all around. Best part of dinner was fresh baked rolls and herb butter. Also odd a restaurant of that price point had no liquor license.

I had read mixed reviews before eating here. I chose to ignore the negative reviews and we tried it anyway...I wish we had not. Dining here was very disappointing, especially given the good reviews that it does have. And it was not an inexpensive meal. My husband ordered the filet which was listed on the menu to include pepper, which would have been fine. Instead, it was basically a pepper steak; not what he had in mind...too much pepper (and he likes pepper). I had the chicken under a brick. The spinach was very good. The chicken was very dry. I ordered butterscotch pudding to go. It was actually quite good. But the presentation for a $12.00 dessert was terrible! I assumed they’d put it in a box and add garnish as they would serve it in the restaurant. Instead I was presented with a 4 oz canning jar filled with pudding and caramel sauce. We visit Santa Fe once per year, largely for the dining. Joseph’s will not be on our list of places to eat.

Where were the table flowers?!The smoked salmon omelet was a bit too salty for my taste. The potatoes were raw in the middle. The berries were yummy! The cloud cake and trio of sorbets yummi! Love eating dinner here not so sure about a special brunch.

This was our first visit to Joseph’s, and we were impressed with our experience in every way. Our food was excellent, with delicious taste combinations and some interesting twists (e.g., the tasty “carrot dog”). Our desserts were especially wonderful (tres leches cake and salted caramel butterscotch pudding). The wine and beer lists are diverse with great selections. Our server provided quite informative descriptions of the menu (and helped my dining partner avoid the most chile-intensive choices). We’ll be back to Joseph’s - soon.

Joseph continues to delight patrons ins Santa Fe, as he did in Taos. He's reinvented this restaurant as a less formal "culinary pub," but maintains a very high quality and imaginative menu. Service (Ben) was very competent and enjoyable. Duck confit was extraordinary and voluminous. Look forward to returning in rabbit season.

I have already written a review of this place and dont think I need to write another one. It is consistently good. If I'm lucky, we get to sit in the back where my husband can hear much better.
It's just a great little restaurant and not too pretentious and offers good food.

Outstanding cuisine which is very creative, imaginative, beautifully presented. Joseph has a real talent for complimentary flavors. I have eaten here many times both in Santa Fe, NM and his earlier restaurants in Taos, NM. I have always loved his food.
But... his culinary pub is one of the loudest restaurants in town. Want to have a quiet dinner visiting with a date, forget it, you will have a shouting match trying to hear and be heard. The problem: too many hard surfaces in too small a space. Second room to right of bar area as one enters, is quieter, usually. Outside dining in summer is also quieter than main dining room.

There's a lot to like about Joseph's Culinary Pub: beautiful ambiance, delicious and creative food, attentive service. Our dinner was a gathering of friends - one of whom is gluten-free. I was very impressed with how our waiter knowledgeably suggested dishes that were vegan or gluten-free and also suggested how dome dishes could be modified to be gluten-free. Going further, the waiter brought us both regular and gluten-free bread before our first course. The food was great and a nice break from the standard cuisine in Santa Fe. I enjoyed the wonderfully juicy brick-pressed chicken with crispy spinach. Incredible. Others enjoyed the evening special of swordfish, the delectable vegetarian napoleon, and the perfectly prepared pepper steak. Every plate was completely devoured. We went on to dessert and enjoyed a strawberry tres leches cake with a thick raspberry puree and a trio of sorbet. It's rare to find a restaurant where every dish is so beautifully prepared and tasty. It's even rarer to find a restaurant with such attentive and helpful service. Joseph's wine list is impressive with a very good selection of wines by the glass. We look forward to our next dinner at this warm and welcoming restaurant!

Our meals at Joseph's was excellent. We were looking for a good meal for our last evening in Santa Fe and hit the jackpot when we walked into Joseph's. The combination of ingredients and flavors was spectacular. We would recommend this restaurant for all occasions both big and small. Terrific meal and would go back again if I'm ever back in Santa Fe.
