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.

Food was really good, but service was lacking. We had to ask our waitress for menus after being at our table for 15 minutes.

Icwe’re from the coast and ordered oysters, they were fresh however lacked the brine we were used to. The swordfish special with mole sauce was really interesting but did not overpower the fish and the fillet was cooked perfectly. Will be going back. Great wine selection and very good ports.

Food was wonderful, service was unusually attentive. Our first table was in a very loud area, and the hostess worked her magic to figure out how to love us to a quieter spot, and then kept checking to see if all was ok. Butterscotch pudding dessert was a trip down memory lane.

Such nice atmosphere and great staff. The waitress and busboy were excellent, smart, always attentive. We knew the menu was not slanted towards food-challenged clients (I.e. vegetarian, gluten free, less spicy) but a little disappointed that the least spicy entree of the 2 non meat items was still very spicy and a small serving. The waitress noticed and brought additional quinoa-rice. Still a lovely place and can be recommended for “normal” diners.

I truly enjoy this place although the noise level is higher than I remember. The potato chips are perfection, as was the chicken posole, watermelon feta salad and the barramundi fish special. We all cleaned our plates and then had to have the butterscotch pudding and chocolate bistro cake. Quite happy with our meal.
While it was hard to hear, it also got really warm later in the evening. A ceiling fan or two would help.

Very good food, lots of choices, with an emphasis on duck fat. Creative menu. Great, fresh oysters. Friendly wait staff. Only negatives: hostess had her back to the door and did not turn around from her computer for five minutes while we stood there, waiting to be seated; and the drinks were very slow to come to the table- - 10 minutes wait.

Have loved Chef Wrede’s cooking for nearly 20 years... vacation wouldn’t be vacation without some duck fat fries. This night was fantastic as usual, and the end with duckfat ice cream was a delightful way to conclude a trip to Santa Fe

Joeseph’s is one of our favorite restaurants in town. My husband and i were celebrating my birthday with lamb burgers. Our favorite spot is outdoors on their patio. Great food and great atmosphere!

Having arrived early, I was able to get a quiet table in the back. Service was knowledgeable, friendly, and caring.
The duck Pad Thai was a combo of layered tastes and textures. It was outstanding in every way…additional condiment was brought on the side which I used too but and didn’t need to add much….

This is our favorite place to have dinner in Santa Fe. We had friends visiting from L.A. who said they'd go every night for dinner if they could. The wait staff is attentive and fun,
the atmosphere is relaxed and unpretentious and the food is creative and delicious.
We just love it !

Disappointing. A local recommended Joseph’s to us. Compared to the food and atmosphere at both Horno and La Casa Sena where we are the 2 previous evenings, Joseph’s did not compare. The food was edible but just a very different standard and not to our liking. There are many better places in foodie Santa Fe.

Lovely experience on the 4th of July. We have a puppy and were seated on the patio. The staff were very welcoming to our dog, and provided water to him several times. Service was excellent, and the food was delicious. Highly recommended!

This was our first time there & the only things better than the food were the servers. I had the Fire roasted Poblanos Stuffed with Quinoa and my better half had the N.M. Lamb Burger w/ Green Chile & Sheep's Milk Cheese. Both were great.

The menu at Joseph’s Culinary Pub is incredible. Every time we go, which is every time we are in town, we try something new and our minds and taste buds are just blown away. The dishes are just so perfectly conceived, even down to what they serve to accompany the dish … amazing!! And, if you want to have the best guide to their menu, and likely the best waiter in town, ask for Gabe.
