Diner Reviews
  • "Was seated promptly. Nice server. Food took a bit longer than would expect, but ok since we were in no hurry, and with two other couples. Portions were ample. Carrot Cake needs a big improvement. But all in all an enjoyable experience..j"

  • "Great food, excellent service, diversified menu, fantastic presentation. All 5 Stars! The only negative is they don't dispense doubles when it comes to cocktails and too much ice. Optional Sparkling Water was conspicuously missing."

Our server, started with an L, Lorainne possibly, and the host, Cindy, were really nice to talk with and very helpful and informative.

  • "I specifically asked for my soup to be hot. The waitress brought our soups with a pot holder, since the plates were so hot. Best Lobster Bisque soup I've ever tasted. Steaks were cooked exactly as requested. Waitress was very attentive."

  • "This is our favorite restaurant in the Joliet area! The onion soup is yummy and the steaks are mouthwatering!"
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "The service was good and our server was very helpful and the steak that was a special offering for the day was very good and cooked perfectly. Lobster good but I didn't feel it was very big, mostly lots of shell. The shrimp cocktail appetizer was way overpriced, $16.00 for 5 big but not jumbo was too much. Surprised that everything was ala-carte and you only were offered some rolls as no salad, etc. given. But, the overall experience was good and we will return again. It would be helpful to not have to ask if anything was included with the entrees, etc."

  • "We have been here several times and never had a bad experience. Food is always great. Try the scallops and crab cakes for an appetizer. The new menu covers most taste buds."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "I thought even for Harrahs the prices were unbelievably high for what you were served! $32.00 for 2 very very small pieces of shrimp cocktail and $26.00 for a piece of filet mignon that was the size of a quarter with no sides. Hot shoe casino had s fantastic restaurant and I will always go there."

  • "Nice selection of starters, salads, steaks (of course), seafood and desserts. Or group had the prime rib (thick and cooked to order), and the evening's seafood special, halibut with a lobster sauce (fresh and perfect flavor combo). We split the flourless chocolate cake which was served with peppermint ice cream. We also split a crab cake appetizer...excellent and mostly crab, with little filler. Everything (including any side dish with the steak) is ala carte, so the price adds up. The meals, with a glass of wine apiece and one dessert and one coffee was $150."

  • "My wife and I had a nice dinner at Reserve on a Friday night. It is a lovely white tablecloth restaurant with polite effficient servers eager to please you. We had a delicious house salad followed by seared tuna cooked to taste along with roasted fingerling potatoes and steamed bok choy cabbage. Our compliments to the chef for a fine dining experience. "

  • "It was very quiet and intimate inside. There was a rock band playing down the hall and you couldn't really hear them. We only had seafood, but will definitely go to try the meat. Lobster bisque was delish!"

  • "The Reserve is a great restaurant to visit in Joliet. The casino has been there a long time and some of the other restaurants have come and gone but The Reserve remains an anchor. The shrimp for the cocktail are fantastic! Fresh, firm, and delish! This last visit was my first using OpenTable. Everything went very smoothly and my entire party enjoyed a wonderful evening."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "The food at the reserve is delicious but the prices are too high for what you actually get. We ordered the lobster tempura as an appetizer and although it was very tasty it was definitely not worth $16. I also do not like the fact that everything is a la carte. If I am going to pay $44 for a three piece rack of lamb the least they could do is include one side dish. Even a soup or salad would do."
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "The Reserve is an upscale restaurant, located at the Harrah's casino in Joliet. It has a great atmosphere. The decor is classic with modern touches. Steak was excellent, as were the burgers."

  • "Great service, great food. Smaller portions of the dinner salads are available for $5!! Try the Steakhouse Meatloaf--it will melt in your mouth! This is a smaller restaurant but the flavor of the dishes is LARGE. This is a great place for a celebration dinner or a romantic dinner. Ask for a booth either in front of the restaurant to see everything that is going on or way in the back for a romantic dinner. My party enjoyed the smaller portion wedge salad, the Steakhouse Meatloaf and the Stuffed Pork Chop. Everything was delicious and the service was excellent. This is a must try!"

  • "Our dinner was very nice, the food was delicious. The portions were satisfying. We took the dessert to go, however that was a disappointment . I checked the package before we left and they put the ice cream on top of the flourless chocolate cake when I specifically asked for it on the side. Our waiter seemed a little perturbed when I pointed out the mistake. He then got me a new one which included the ice cream on the side, instead of a scoop it was a tablespoons worth, it did not include the berries. I did not dare point this out because then he might not of given me any of my dessert."

  • "With the last minute cancellation of Tommy James, we decided to go through with the pre concert dinner. That was the best decision of the evening. Our table was ready as planned and the seating was perfect. Our server Dori, was attentive, cordial, and professional. The menu was well varied and the beverages appropriate. The food was fantastic and coupled with the service and setting, an otherwise disappointing evening was saved."

  • "We go to the place that has the best tasting, best looking Sea Bass around Chicago land. We would recommend this to anyone just ask, the well timed delivering of each course, excellent!!"

  • "It seems to me that the Reserve has gone downhill. Out of five of us eating, only one enjoyed the meal. She ordered the Amish chicken which was delicious. My meatloaf was cold and put on two different plates. I told the waitress to have the chef cut the meatloaf in half. I didn't want a thick piece. Instead, she brought me two plates with meatloaf on it. When I went to eat it, it was very cold. She took it back and when I did eat it, I was disappointed in the taste. My sister ordered a shrimp dish with rice that was on special. The waitress said she would get four large prawns. The size of the shrimp were small, and it certainly wasn't worth the price. Two other people ordered filets which also came out cold. Poor meals and service."
