    Although advertised as a brunch, it was really more of a breakfast buffet. Quite tasty though!

    Juliet's Tavern is a wonderful place to go prior to a show at the Rialto. We were there on a Wednesday night and they had their excellent burgers on special. The service was outstanding, the waitress and others were prompt and very helpful with suggestions and just about everything. The truffle fries are a must!

    We went for dinner before a concert, the Shrimp scampi was delicious! As was the loaded baked potato and truffle fries. I didn’t care for the oysters Rockefeller, the oysters were huge! In my experience, stuffed mushrooms, are better stuffed with crabmeat not Italian sausage. Therefore I didn’t care for those either. We had a nice bottle of red wine and the house chips were delicious too! Overall, great service & food and I will definitely dine there again.

    Wanted a quick bite before the concert at the Rialto. The service was prompt, food was fresh and hot. The servers were informative and proactive on drink refills. I enjoyed one of the Wednesday night specialty hamburgers and loaded tater tots. The menu has a variety so something for everyone in your group. Nice easy place to enjoy a meal.

    We really enjoyed our dinner and fun atmosphere. Although our server was friendly and attentive, we did not like waiting 40 minutes for our drinks to arrive— especially since we told him we had theater tix and were on a strict time frame.

    We visited Juliet’s Tavern for the first time yesterday. The service was incredible from the time we stepped foot in the door till we left, the food was very tasty, and their prices are great. We ordered an appetizer , 4 drinks total, and 2 entrees and our bill was under $100. We were shocked. We will definitely be going back.

    The food was nice the wait time was perfect. It was a Sunday evening so there was no downtime for finding a seat or making reservations. The waitress was very attentive and not clingy at all came back when necessary and was very cordial and engaging. I would have given the food a five if the menu had been updated. It is stagnant and needs to be developed more.

    We were sad that the soft pretzel wasn't available, it's our favorite. Mostly all was good, but we were seated next to the fire place, where there is a curtain where it seems to potentially be storage, and folks were being loud enough to disturb our dining. Maybe move that storage? But our server was wonderful, the food we had was great, and we'll be back next time we are in Joliet.

    Very good service, food was great and the wait staff was terrific. However, prices can be deceiving. $25 for a scallop entree that had just 4 scallops?

    Stopped here for dinner before a show at the Forge venue across the street. Food was good. I had a Juliet Burger, which was good, nothing crazy. Wife had the Cubano which was very good. She also had the parmesan tater tots. Prices are reasonable. Place is very nice. There is a bar area with some tables and a separate connected dining room. Somewhat elegant with white linen table cloths. Our server was great. We'd probably go back since there are several dinner items that sound great, but we didn't want to eat heavier prior to a show.

    The space aesthetic is spot on and would lend itself to a nice family or even romantic dinner. Unfortunately, the bar music was blasted into the dining room and did not match the surroundings. Our server clearly was not paying attention to anything we said because she asked us the same questions on multiple occaisions (questions that didn't need to be asked again). Overall, the food was ok, service was absentminded but the space itself is beautiful.

    My husband and I walked in and the hostess said she didn't have my reservation, though I showed it to her on my phone. She was flustered and instead of trying to find out the issue, she seated 3-4 parties that arrived after us. She then said she gave my reservation to someone else, so she was going to find out who they were, and would give me theirs. It was frustrating. Finally, the manager asked how many were in my party even though it said 4. He said he seated 2 people and that maybe they were with us, to come and see. It was the other 2 to my party that were already seated, and the reason why my reservation was 'given away to someone else'. I couldn't believe it. Front seemed unorganized. The food was really good, but I was disappointed in the amount of lobster in my lobster mac and cheese. I literally had to dig through it to find some, which were very small pieces. Not worth $25. Drinks and service were very good.

    Dinner and drinks were perfect. Juliet’s 8 dollar burgers every Wednesday is one of the best deals available in Joliet. Just need to be sure to save room for the chocolate cake and chocolate chip cookie skillet both are very good.

    This was my second time dining at Juliet’s. I had the Crab Supreme Salad (which was amazing) and a very tasty Manhattan. Love the ambience and the proximity to the Rialto. Our experience was heightened by our server, Shea. She was an absolute delight…..if she weren’t working I would have asked her to join us!!! I highly recommend Juliet’s and will always choose it for pre-Rialto event dining.

    Food was excellent, apps very good. Atmosphere was really nice, vintage. They had a lot of reservations at the same time as ours, so there were a lot of drink orders going to the bar at one time…one person in our party went 40 minutes without a drink. Not good. Our server kept checking but we kept not getting the drink. We finally said something to a server who was not our server, and she got the manager involved. You could tell the bar was training new people, and servers and managers were frustrated by it. They did make good on our bill which made up for some of it. We will be back to try it again, hoping on better service.

    Food and service from Layna was wonderful! However, made a 6 pm reservation. Arrived 10 minutes early. Was told we had to wait b/c it wasn't 6 pm yet and we'd be seated then. No problem. But then at 6 - three other parties arrive saying they have a 6 pm reservation and they get seated immediately. At 6:10 ask again about table. Told that table we were "assigned to" still has guests. They are hoping to hurry them along and clean the table for us. What "assigned" table? We were the first ones to walk in with a 6 pm reservation. Why couldn't we get seated at the first available table? Seated 25 min. after arriving - what was the sense of having a reservation?

    Sausage stuffed mushrooms were great, husband enjoyed the filet with the brussel sprouts. I had the salmon it was decent, could have used more sauce and the asparagus was very plain. I know I could have added salt but I try to not doing that. Chocolate chip cookie skillet was yummy
