Joseph's Culinary Pub
Friday and Saturday: 5:30 - 11:00pm
Fantastic food and service. Highly recommended.
Excellent food, nice atmosphere, helpful but not oppressive service. A winner!
Joe is a creative chef and favors local sources whenever possible, specializing in local lamb.
Comfortable neighborhood restaurant with great food. Chicken liver mousse and Vegetable enchiladas were excellent.
Wonderful food; lovely setting and great menu. Cannot wait to return to Joseph's!
We had a wonderful experience! The service was first rate from beginning to end. Each menu item we tried was interesting, nicely presented and most importantly, delicious.
For our entree, my husband and I both had a special of the night, swordfish that was beautifully prepared with a grainy mustard and creme fraiche coating, cauliflower puree and a succotash of kale, corn, and green chiles and a beurre blanc sauce. We had in-house made ice cream for dessert that was the perfect ending to a great evening. We are frequent visitors to Santa Fe. Shame on us for not having been to Joseph’s before but we will be back.
We had a reservation, but arrived early. The hostess made sure we had a seat at the bar which we appreciated, and said they were just re-setting tables. But then after being there for 45 minutes, I had to inquire about our table. She said, "Oh, you still want a table?"
Food was mediocre and priced high for what it was. Not impressed at all.
Ask to sit in the back room; it is cozy, intimate and great for conversation. Joseph’s is our neighborhood “go to” for anything from a quick bite to a fancy, celebratory meal.
Some of the food was very good (swordfish special), some was mediocre (relleno), and other just poor (chicken under brick was very dry). None of it was exceptional. All of which would be fine if the prices weren’t so exceptionally high. We had the nicest busboy ever but the waiter lacked a CX mindset. When we pointed out that he’d forgotten to put two appetizers on our bill he just added them. I would have thought putting one of our desserts or a coffee on the house was appropriate appreciation for our honesty. The real issue with Joseph’s is that the very high prices mean customers expect exceptional food and consistently gracious service. Neither was part of our experience.
Food was outstanding, and staff took a generous amount of time with us regarding wine and the menu. Lovely place!
Unfortunately I found the majoryof the food “average”. The ceviche was outstanding, and we were looking forward to our entrees, but they fell significantly short. Wouldn’t take a lot to get them up to excellent. Ice cream was also on the average level.
Joseph's was the dining highlight of our trip to the Santa Fe area. We sat on the lovely outdoors deck and enjoyed attentive friendly service from Allison. We like to split dishes to make room to eat all the courses, each dish was fresh, well flavored, and original. We enjoyed a light and refreshing ceviche with rich sea bass, flavorful salad, and a well balanced and interesting pork choose with an apple butter and green child apple chutney. Desserts were great as well. Highly recommend!
Was able to change my reservation last minute, super accommodating. Shared two appetizers and an entrée -which they graciously split onto two separate plates for us. Got the duck fat fries, vegetable risotto and filet with demi glace - HIGHLY recommend.
A wonderful choice for great dining experience.
Very creative menu and delicious food. Great service and a charming atmosphere.
The lamb burger was delicious and the accompanying salad was colorful and very good. My server, Gabe, was very attentive and did a very good job.
From the hostess to all the wait staff and helpers Joseph’s is a perfect place to share a meal. The food is top— so many wonderful flavors... the servers— friendly, attentive all without attitude. It was a welcomed delight of an evening. Highly recommend to all those living or visiting Santa Fe.
A wonderful small restarat with unique entree choices. Very friendly staff and great decor.
Felt great to be in a restaurant where the staff took excellent care of my guest and me.
Food was mediocre. Squash blossoms were soggy and bland. Chicken was uninspired. Beet salad was ridiculous...good luck finding anything but lettuce. Swordfish "steak" was very thin and not flavorful. Many better options in Santa Fe.
Service was fine.
We had beef and pork, a small coleslaw side would been perfect
We had a lovey dinner & will definitely be back. Charming atmosphere
We had a lovely early dinner and chose 2 of the specials. Both were excellent and Anne was a very helpful and attentive server.
The variety and innovative preperations were outstanding
Enjoyable evening in a comfortable restaurant with good service.
Joesoph Wriede is a master! His comforting cuisine is always appreciated! Love the lamb burger, never afraid to recommend
Lovely place, cozy with good service. Vegetarian enchilada is FANTASTIC. Order it. Duck fat fries are good but in the end just fries. Our entrees were the lamb burger (good, not great) and the short rib (underseasoned, so just okay). We would go back, but if we only had 2-3 nights in Santa Fe we can think of many other restaurants that would draw us in faster.
Joseph continues to shine // Complex menu and fun //
Our fifth visit and all have been excellent. Food, service and selection remain impressive.
Very enjoyable meal.
We had a wonderful evening at Joseph’s .
We feel very special there.
Star takes great care of us .
The food was Delicious!
The swordfish special was perfect .
We loved everything.
We appreciate the attention you gave to our guest that has food allergies.
Loved the cuisine and desserts.
Hats off to the bartender Ben. Always a gentleman.
Lamb burger was so tasty & juicy. Duck confit could have been crispier. Time between appetizer & main course was too long. Charming spot.
Always great...friends from out of town thought it was amazing. Miss the bone marrow though.
Creative menu with varied choices for our group of 4. Excllent and informative wait staff. Ambience was perfect--they get the lighting just right. Will be a favorite of our in the future among the many choices in Santa Fe downtown/ railyard area.
Joseph's culinary pub is outstanding. While the atmosphere is casual and fun, Joseph's is serious about the food! The service was excellent, knowledgeable and prompt. The chili poppers were flavorful and spicy. The esquites is a house specialty and delicious with fresh corn and an amazing sauce. The duck confit was one of the best duck dishes ever and the vegetarian enchiladas were creatively prepared and were very tasty, filled with fresh vegetables. The flan was silky in texture and light. Great meal.
It was really good, I was skeptical after reading a few bad reviews. But there weren’t many. The reviews were poor about the duck being dry. But I stayed away from the duck. I had the steak, worth the price. My daughter’s attitude about the place was bad, she doesn’t like fancy places. But she came around and really liked it too.
Went for my Husbands birthday. Food was outstanding and service was great!! Highly recommended this to everyone Santa Feans and tourists alike.
We had a marvelous time for one of the going away parties for our friends. We enjoyed the food, it is very special and well prepared. The hostess is always lovely. A fine bartender and the meal was delicious. Just a bit noisy with large tables and lots of drinks. Difficult to talk.
