We had a nice time. It was 6:30 on a Monday evening in December. Not many other customers there so it was quiet and we enjoyed good food and service.

Nice dining experience, some creative options, nice atmosphere, good service. Wine was good, although overall wine prices have a high markup. A reasonable house wine option would be a nice add to menu. Will return again.

Check & RECHECK your charge bill--ours had over $100 added after our initial charge!

We dined Thanksgiving. Food was good & atmosphere lovely. Terrific wine sommelier: friendly & helpful. The BIG problems were with our server. she was clearly unhappy that our party of 7 included an 11 year old & 2-15 year olds with selective palates. I'd asked the wine sommelier if they had picky-eater options, & he said he'd seen mac & cheese ordered & they also had lamb-burgers (not on Thanksgiving menu, but avail.). When our waiter came, she insisted there were no options except those on the Thanksgiving menu--she didn't mention mac& cheese or lamb burger. I asked her to check with the chef, & she did so grudgingly. She returned & said kid's mac&cheese was available, but still no mention of the lamb burgers, UNTIL the teens decided on appetizers for their meal--then the (pricier) lamb burgers were suddenly mentioned. For the rest of the evening she ignored our table to chat with neighboring tables. Later she gave dessert menus directly to the kids (we were seated closer to her), rather than checking with adults 1st to see if we wanted dessert menus.
We'd planned to reduce her tip to 15%, & were stunned to be automatically charged 20%. This should be noted on web page & menu.

Normally I'd not bother to complain, but at home I got a message from the waiter that she'd accidentally under-charged us by 33% (splitting the bill in 1/3s, rather than 1/2s) & wanted permission to charge approx. $100 more to each bill. Luckily, our friends'd photoed the receipt (which we'd left on the table) & the initial charges were correct. But THEY'D ALREADY ADDED CHARGES WITHOUT OUR PERMISSION. I called/wrote, & after long back-&-forths, the manager said it was an error they'd fix & would remove the mandatory tip. Later we checked our bills & were shocked to find the CHARGES HAD GONE UP AGAIN, not down! Emailed again & got no real apology, from manager, just justifications. Bad aftertaste. :(

This was our second year in a row having family Thanksgiving at Joseph’s. Our group of seven totally enjoyed the entire experience. Creative dishes and traditional dishes all were thoroughly enjoyed. The service was warm, unassuming and helpful. Highly recommend Joseph’s; if they can do it right on a holiday like Thanksgiving I would expect even more on a regular evening. Nice wine list too.

An amazing meal!!! We had their special appetizer.......bone marrow with prosciutto, buttered toast &warm Cambizolla cheese which absolutely delicious. My husband had the short rib & I had fish..Corvino with chanterelle mushroom, both of which were really yummy. It was not a cheap meal but it was truly memorable & have no hesitation in recommending it. It has been the best meal we have had in Santa Fe

In a city with a number of excellent restaurants Joseph's is as good as it gets. The food is superb and the staff is extra friendly and very attentive. Six friends from the Santa Fe area had dinner here on Wednesday evening. We started with the fried polenta that was presented with a cream sauce. Everyone felt it was as good as they have ever tasted. My wife and I shared the smoked trout/arugula salad that was excellent. I then had the chile relleno and my wife had the grilled salmon. The large poblano pepper was coated with a light batter that was just right and the red chile sauce was spicy but not over the top. The grilled salmon was perfectly cooked and served over some delicious cooked spinach. We will be going back to Joseph's.

Chef Joseph is a remarkably talented man who is capable of extracting maximum flavor from both food and spice. His pub offers a wide variety of dishes, allowing the diner both small or large, exotic or commonplace, pricey or reasonable options. It has become a hot spot in Santa Fe for both young and old. It has also become exceedingly noisy - lots of people having a really good time. While the variety of foods is considerable, I had some difficulty in finding starters that were acceptable for our party of four to share and the two I chose, peppers and a chicken pate were not well received. Everyone enjoyed their salads and entrees, which were so generous we could not finish them. It's a good place to go with flavorful food, good wine, and a convivial atmosphere, but really noisy.

It was quite noisy in the main dining room. The hostess was very accommodating, even though they were busy, and in a few moments seated us in a quiet room.
The food was excellent; delicious and well presented.
Compared to all the restaurants in Santa Fe, the staff were all top notch; friendly, helpful, and very welcoming.
Definitely on my 'return to' list.

Lovely neighborhood restaurant, with attentive wait staff and an emphasis on local ingredients. We sat outside, but either inside or outside would be quiet -- great for couples or small groups who wish to talk with each other. A friend recommended the Longmire appetizer, and the server was kind enough to warn us that it is spicy -- which did not deter us!

Having read about the restaurant in a review done by the New York Times we were looking forward to a unique dining experience. The format is small or petite plates which serve as excellent starters or tapas, or Grand plates for an entree. We chose the tapas route and ordered the highly touted duck fat fries, The Longmire, which is 3 Duck fat fried Jalapeno poppers and a salad. The fries were quite ordinary...don't know why critics wax on about them. We concluded with the Warm Bittersweet Chocolate Bistro Cake with Chantilly cream. Our server was a very pleasant chap and responsive to questions. The restaurant has limited lighting so bring a flash lite or use your phone. We felt the experience was interesting but don't plan to recommend it to others.

What a find. Joesph's was recommended to us from friends who had visited Santa Fe....they said you will go once and then find a way to go back before you leave. They were right. We could have ordered the entire menu. The duck and lamb items are outrageous ! I wish we could report on the rest of the menu...we could, if we had stayed another week. The desserts are spectacular. Talk about service with a smile. Great staff. Both nights the restaurant was packed...we suggest reservations.
