    The restaurant was exceedingly crowded making it a bit hard to hear one another, but on the positive side, the waitress was perfect. She knew her stuff, including all about the wines and beers. The ceviche was delicious, as was the bread I ate while my husband enjoyed his appetizer. The duck pad thai was wonderful but the duck with the beautiful crispy skin, which is pictured in the ad (and which I was dying for) was overcooked. My husband felt it must always come out this way, but I felt it was too dry, and if it was the featured dish, it must be better than this. I liked the busy waitress too much to bother her about this because I liked her so much, but perhaps I could have given a better review if I had sent it back.

    As always Joe delivers from incredible wait staff, delectable menu and delicious wine menu. The seabass was over the top delicious and a beautifully colorful plate full of fresh vegetables and a creamy risotto rounded it out with perfect balance in flavors. And Michelle’s enthusiasm created the full experience for us!

    We ordered the Swordfish special. The fish was rubbery and a bit off tasting as can occur when swordfish is overcooked. The staff responded well and removed the item from our bill and gave us a complimentary pudding to take home…good reaction from the staff but overall a bit disappointing as it was a special birthday celebration dinner.

    we were in Santa Fe visiting from NYC. A gallery owner recommended Joseph's when we told him my husband was gluten free. They did not disappoint. The food was delicious and the staff was very tuned into the fact that everything had to be gluten free. And the best part - all desserts were gluten free and he had tiramisu for the first time in years. Thank you Joseph's for a wonderful meal.

    We were blown away! The food is delicious, prepared so well, great balance of flavors -- and lots of interesting choices. We wanted to try to many things, so we ordered too much and took some of it home. Of course, it was great as a leftover. The service is attentive and friendly. It's a small place and when we were there, it was packed -- on a Wednesday night. So it can be difficult to hear your dinner partner and the server sometimes. I would highly highly recommend this. Chef Joseph, great job!

    Everything was perfection. The food was so fresh and delicious. A place like this makes you realize that all the places you normally eat are kinda subpar. I live in Albuquerque and usually get up to Santa Fe for date night about once a month or so. And I have lived in cities with plenty of James Beard award winners. This is like the award winning restaurant that is just your neighborhood spot for small plates, an amazing lamb burger and a wonderful glass of wine. I wish I lived in this neighborhood so it could be my spot. Oh, and the ambiance was cozy and cool.

    The lamb burger was good…the Chicken Pasole was a joke. It had one sliver of chicken, barely any broth and tons of red cabbage. I remember ordering that when Joseph’s was new and it being the most delicious and beautiful dish. Where has that pride gone?

    A beautiful looking establishment with a nice romantic vibe and a moderately to quite environment. All food/drinks were good but a rarity of items being great and memorable or a desire to want again. Service was as if we were forgotten several times but when visits did occur they were a nice and knowledgeable encounter. Overall Joseph’s is good but not something I would highly recommend or crave. Unfortunately the only memorable thing was the interior decor.

    We went to Joseph's during Santa Fe's Restaurant Week (such a fun time!). On the Restaurant Week's menu, though one could order from the regular menu, there were at least 8 options for Starters, 10 for Grands, another 6 for Sweets. (Our waitress told us that there was a little different menu each night for those who came more than once during the week.) YUMM! I chose the ceviche, just the right amount of lime, the half duck with a wonderful sweet and sour sauce, and the butterscotch pudding with caramel sauce. Well! It was perhaps the best dessert I've ever had, for sure among the top five; I'll be going back if for nothing more than that. One last word for our attentive waitstaff Sam who always had a smile, and for Michelle who knew every dish and described each with an intimate knowledge of flavor nuances and ingredients. Just a wonderful night all around!

    We were here for dinner not realizing it was restaurant week and a $60 prefix but the meal was outstanding. Every course was exceptional. Highly recommend the green chili posse, lamb curry and pad Thai along with the fish special were all excellent. Maria from New Hampshire was a great server with a sense of humor. Lovely evening.

    This was the worst duck I have ever had. Was it even a duck? It was dry and tough, and it was barely possible to disassemble it with the very poor quality knife that was furnished. (It was serrated but did not work like one, since all it could do was shred the flesh. My wife had the same trouble using the provided knife on her steak, where all she could do with it was tear at the meat, not cut it. At least the steak itself, unlike the "duck," was very good.) My entree took such effort that I eventually got a cramp in my hand, and I finally had to finish the "duck" by holding it and tearing the flesh off the bone with my teeth, caveman style. There was no fat under the skin, which makes me think it had been removed beforehand, taking the flavor with it, in order to prepare your specialty duck fat fries and potato chips. But of course this left the rest of the duck tough and dry. Let me know if my supposition is correct.

    We went for Restaurant Week. The entire menu was available. That was excellent. Servings were generous and service was excellent too. My biggest complaint is about the noise level. We had a small table of 4 and it was still difficult to have a conversation with anyone not right next to you. After a while the tables cleared out and there was some relative quiet time. We enjoyed sharing 4 of the appetizers. We had the pad Thai, 1/2 duck and the steak. All were really good and we all took some home. The Butterscotch Pudding is the only dessert in the whole world I will NOT share. It is that good. I like going to Joseph's but maybe not on a busy Saturday night. Their food is just so good. We will return. PS-get some Kahlua in that bar of yours!!!

    The glazed duck was amazing, probably the best dish I've ever had. We went for my birthday and they were really sweet and added a candle to my dessert (the chocolate terrine - which was also delicious). This place has a good vibe and ambiance and really great food.
