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.

Atmosphere was very noisy in main dining area (Christmas Dinner for about 20 people). Hostess was very nice and able to move our reservation to their "back" room which was much quieter... However, the service there was very slow... and somewhat inattentive. Food was good, but missed the taste level of previous visits.

This lovely, warm, authentic Santa Fe spot was so inviting. We were weary from the day and I was hoping to dig in to a great (vegetarian) meal. Our service was outstanding and we ordered:

Polenta (Incredible! Would return just for this dish!)
Lamb Burger (Very good)
Cast Iron Cauliflower (This fell short for me, especially the roasted red cabbage)...It was cold within a minute and although the mix of flavors was interesting, it wasn’t interesting enough for me to eat more than half of this small serving.

Great vibe for drinks and friends gathering and special occasions.

We enjoyed wonderful appetizers, with two separate lamb dishes and a marvelous salad.
The ambiance was cozy, clean and attractive but a bit of distance and snobbery was observed among the staff. Our particular hostesses, however, was friendly. attentive and competent. Very pricey menu and wines but a nice occasional treat.

Overall an incredibly satisfying night out. Thanksgiving can be hard on a restaurant and Joseph's handled it effortlessly. This would be a 5 star if the turkey breast had been more tender. Tastes were all balanced and excellent, vegetarian torte a 10 star.

One of our favorite restaurants in Santa Fe. The food is delicious, and the service is excellent. The waiter we had this last time was one of the best. He was very attentive, funny, great information, and very personable. Just a wonderful place to gather, eat good food, and enjoy yourself and those around you.

We were able to have a comfortable conversation without an trouble. Our server was warm and hospitable. Our food arrived promptly and was served hot. Everything tasted just amazing!

I have dined at Josephs at least five times . Unfortunately on more than one occasion the menu reads so much better than it tastes . The wine list is very good for Santa Fe . Starr the wine buyer knows what she is talking about . I think you need to be very selective when eating here . I so much wish the food held up to the wine and service .

Started with two local craft brews. Followed with the warm charred ratatouille which even the non-vegetarian liked. Next we shared the decadent steak au poivre and licked our plates. Paired dinner with a French Malbec. Capped it off with fantastic espresso. Lovely old charm ambience with low candlelight made it a perfect birthday date night.

We were sat in the back; the only people of color in the whole joint. We were not paid attention. When a table of attractive white women sat next to us, our wait staff was all up in their business-joking, laughing, attending to their needs. The halibut was sweet, tasted more like a dessert; the short ribs were full of fat-it was not trimmed at all. We had to ask twice for extra bread. You would think in this time of division and uncertainty, that our sleepy little of Santa Fe would not partake in such... absurdity...is the only word I have. It is quite disappointing two women of color, pillars of our community, have to be part of such nonsense.

This was my first time at Joseph's. I read about it in a section featured in the New York Times. What a gem! It was a delicious meal. My mother and I split the lamb chile cheese burger and the vegetarian enchilada. Both were so flavorful and satisfying. The atmosphere was perfect. We were comfortable and stimulated by all that was going on around us. We will definitely return in the future.
