Santa Fe >Joe's Diner
Editorial Review by Christy Buena. Serving pastas and pizzas with an undeniable European flair, locals also enjoy juicy buffalo burgers and salads.
Downright Dreadful Food/Service. We'd been to Joe's several months ago and had fairly decent food and service. Last Saturday evening we invited friends to join us for dinner. The restaurant was not busy, yet the service was absolutely pathetic (the waitress could not pronounce the names of the entrees or drinks, the food did not come out in synch or on time, etc.) and the food was oversalted, tasteless and totally boring. We made a complaint to the owner/manager, were given four coupons for future meals, but we do not plan to return there ever again. When we left at 8:00, the restaurant was virtually empty - this being on a Saturday night, a busy night for most restaurants. Santa Fe has too many other good restaurants where we can be treated better and get tastier food on time.
Good food. The other 3 posts are from employees for advertising purposes. Not really good for business. The food is good. The staff/owner leaving feedback for their own place of business is very unprofessional.
User review by voge. Not really a diner, far far better than a lot of "fine" dining establishments. Seems that everyone knows everyone there. Went for the dinner special that night and had possibly the best roast duck I've ever had with pear-mashed potatoes and BBQ red cabbgage with a quince sauce. Jeez, does that sound like a diner? Great music also - someone there has outstanding ear for music and what makes people feel comfortable. The menu is huge so looking forward to returning with friends.
User review by kornlovr763. Joe's Diner is one of the best places I have ever been. I was shocked when I walked into this "diner" and found that as well as the usual burgers and fries, the menu included so many other "fine" dining items and the prices were outstanding. The special was organic pumpkin wonton ravioli, which I couldn't resist. It was topped with a delicate butter sage sauce that was delectable. I was able to sit down, enjoy a beautiful wine and was tempted by the desserts but decided on a hazelnut mocha instead. It was by far the best atmosphere and dining expeirence I have had in quite a while.
Diner goes high class. This is not a ordinary Diner, only the prices are diner like. This full service kitchen prepared Rack of Lamb on a mesquite fired grill to perfection, the Roast Duck was crispy and tender and fingerlicking goood. A small selection of wines by the glass perfectly matched for food and season. A Black 'n Tan came perfectly layered, The Hamburger was Rare as ordered and the fresh, housemade mozzarella tasted like real "fiore di latte".
