    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.

    We always enjoy Joseph’s and our Restaurant Week experience did not disappoint! We were impressed with the number of choices available, and we all enjoyed different selections, from roast duck to a perfectly prepared filet to delicious chicken cassoulet to duck pad Thai, always a favorite. Starters, too, made us smile—polenta fries (yum!), soup, and tamals. And, ever the piece de resistance for one of us, the butterscotch pudding. Service was friendly and efficient. We love dining at Joseph’s!

    Amazing meal at Joesephs during restaurant week. The portions were amazing- we could have made a meal of just the appetizers. The carrot curry soup was delicious. Rabbit Bolognese lasagna was just mouth wateringly good. And the butterscotch pudding was irresistible. We will be back.

    Food was good but very overpriced for the small portions. Nothing special about the food. Duck fat fries were soggy. Service was subpar-we asked for food recommendations and the waitress was very unhelpful, didn’t know the price of the fish of the day and also had no recommendations except “everything’s good.” And then gave us a weird look like it’s weird we even asked. Would not go again or recommend.

    I simply think the food was not to our taste preference and that’s okay! The Pad Thai was extremely sweet and the cassoulet was grainy. We didn’t appreciate how the server handled our very serious nut allergy, and I understand having playful banter with guests, but it could have resulted in a hospital trip or worse had we not been adamant. It was a kind gesture to take the ice cream off our bill thought. It is such a lovely and romantic setting, but just not our cup of tea. I’d be willing to come back and try again!

Service was impeccable. The atmosphere organically warm, energetic, yet cozy. A unique and memorable culinary experience every time.

    Joseph's hits all the marks. Charming, cozy, elegant atmosphere. Excellent and attentive (but not overbearing) service. Truly outstanding food with a great range of options which, compared to other fine dining options in Santa Fe, is a fairly good value. My only critique is that the wine list has recently (in the last 6-12months) eliminated all moderately-priced options for a bottle. Not long ago there were bottles that could be had in the $40-$50 range, and that is no longer the case. Would be nice to see that come back. All the same, the wine/glass is still in the relatively affordable range.

    It was the tenth anniversary of my wife's and my first dinner together, which was also at Joseph's. Everyone was so incredibly nice, starting with seating us at the same table (I had requested this) to complementary champagne and desert. The meal was exceptional as always. The service was also exceptional and could not have been more warm and friendly and happy for us. Joseph's has been our favorite place for 10 years. And yet it even outdid itself! Thank you SO much for such an enjoyable night!

    I liked the lamb tartar, and the lamb burger was good. The half duck however, wasn't really that great. Apart from the duck being under seasoned and the skin not being crispy, the dish as a whole just wasn't really working for me. The flavor profile was overly bitter because of the sour yogurt, berry sauce, and charred cabbage. Good idea, but just didnt really work for me.

    Our over all experience was positive~ it would have been nice for the Manager to have greeted us with a “Welcome” rather it was a “how can I help you” without an apology for having to stand outside while there was very loud repair (part of the restaurant) work taking place and spraying of water… not pleasant to have to stand near it while waiting for the door to open. It would have been professional and proper customer service to acknowledge it~ That part was less than pleasant but the food and service was on point.

    Cozy smaller place, Maybe 15 tables and a small bar. It was a cold night and it was nice comfortably warm. Service was prompt and friendly but not intrusive. We started with a cocktail and had the chicken liver mousse. the mousse was good but was a lot more than that with multiple spreads, and tasty options to add to the crostinis. My wife had the duck, very generous serving (maybe a little too much, actually). I had the fish special of the day, swordfish. perhaps a bit too much garlic for my taste but well done. Icewine and sherry for "dessert". We had a very nice time. Would like to try other menu items but probably won't visit Santa Fe in February again. Previous four visits were in much warmer times.
