    The hostess stand was a bit backed up but once seated, our server was fantastic, prompt, and super friendly. The food was excellent and filling! Was looking for a chopped salad and our server suggested to have the blue cheese wedge chopped up and it was spot on! Fabulous!

    Went because I had celebration dinners to use up. I usually try to use in Vegas Steakhouses because they are just way better. But this time the food was barely edible. We started with $19 shrimp cocktail that comes on a plate and it was hardly cold almost room temperature. At that price I would expect it to come on ice and be fresh. The calamari was ok I’ve had better a diner. My husband got the meatloaf and it was not good at all. I got the shrimp pasta and it was ok. We purposely avoid steaks because they use Whittinghams and honestly their steaks are mediocre at best. Definitely not worth the price. Please get a new supplier already we are in the Midwest and you have plenty good options you don’t need to settle with Whittinghams. Service was great and she saved the day! Unfortunately this is my local Ceasars so I’m kind of stuck eating this. Honestly Outback has better steaks. I was hoping it got better but honestly it got worse. Won’t be back unless new management makes some changes

    Although the menu has significantly been paired down, which is tough when my husband is a pesce-pollotarian (bye-bye whitefish, chicken, pan seared tuna) the meal was delicious. Luckily, one of the specials for the night was pasta with lobster. I enjoyed my go-to filet mignon and an order of the mushroom ravioli for us to share. Everything s perfectly prepared. Our server Vicki was extremely attentive, ensuring the courses were served in a timely manner with little to no lag between dishes, from the soup, to salad, to main course and dessert. Thanks Vicki!

    Food was good. Service was good except we did not get one of our sides until we were half done eating our steaks. The waitress do not say sorry or anything. I expect this at Applebees or Chili’s . Not at a restaurant like this.

    I attempt to make all my visits to Joliet during the Thursday thru Sunday time period, just so that I can have dinner at the Reserve Restaurant, my favorite 'upscale' eatery in all of Chicagoland. I have become friends with several of the staff, especially chefs Tony and Nino, and Laurie, my favorite server. I have probably eaten there 150 times or more over the years, and NEVER had a disappointing experience, in either food or service.

    I must say my husband and I had another wonderful experience at the Reserve Steak House. We at one point was expecting the food and service to be less than satisfying from our first incredible experience but we were so happy to be wrong and it's incredibly refreshing to see such wonderful consistency in all aspects of food and service at the Reserve.The quiet dim-light setting and 'Old times music is calm and relaxing.Our server was awesome. We are definitely coming back.Ha you know I tell people all the time 'Don't believe me.Try and see it for yourself.You will not be disappointed '.

    Wonderful evening and dinner. The meals were delicious. Both the soup of the day and the lobster bisque were all so tasty. Have never had a bad cocktail from all my visits. Visited on a Sunday and took advantage of the Pre-Fixe menu. A terrific offering and bargain. Did request booth seating on our reservation and they did accommodate. Only a slight hiccup. Ordered the ribeye medium well and it was cooked well, no pinkness at all. It was still delicious and did not send it back.

    The food was awesome but the prices were pretty high. Didn't know inflation was quite this bad. The booth we were seated in had music which was nice but was turned up too loud. The server was truly wonderful but I think the kitchen was moving very slowly. My steak was cooked perfectly and my wife's salmon was very tasty. I would definitely eat here again when I have an extra two hundred dollars.

    I made a reservation for Christmas Eve on November 27th. I requested a table rather than a booth. The three of us (all over 65) find it more comfortable at a table than a booth. On December 23, I received an email from open table to confirm my reservation. A few hours later I received a call from Lisa who works at the Reserve. Lisa too was wanting us to confirm our reservation for Christmas Eve. When we arrived at The Reserve Steakhouse on December 24, it was Lisa at the hostess Station. Lisa said that they only had booths available. Lisa denied that I requested a table and stated we would have to wait 40-45 minutes for a table for 3! I asked the gentleman that sat us at a booth about a table on the other side of room. He said it was reserved for 5 people. Now wait , didn’t I make a reservation! And later that same table supposedly reserved for 5, had 2 people seated there. All in all Our Food was good and had a very nice server Mariah!

    A mostly impressive venue, but had a few hiccups this go round. Good service, wait staff professional. The ambiance is very pleasing. A couple negatives. The overhead music was quite loud making it a little difficult for conversations. I found myself leaning over the table at times in order to clearly hear our other guests. I always have had a terrific meal in the past. This time was very dissatisfied with the wild rice. It was mostly bland and soupy in texture. The water was not all absorbed. Also, had the asparagus. There was overkill on the butter sauce. I would recommend ordering it au natural. The entrees ordered were very tasty as usual.

    I had a reservation for 4:15 which is shortly after the restaurant opens so it shouldn't have been a problem but I was asked to sit at a counter instead of a table. I only did so because I was hungry but I felt uncomfortable sitting there. I ordered a candied bacon appetizer with a boneless ribeye steak with french fries. My appetizer came out cold and the waitress asked if she could bring my steak out since it was ready. I was afraid to say no because then it would have ended up cold. I am a Diamond card holder and if this is the way they treat their customers I highly doubt I will be back here.

    I've NEVER had a disappointing meal at The Reserve Steakhouse at Harrah's in Joliet. I vary my choices between meat & seafood, and may sometimes have to substitute the usual vegetable for something I like instead, but they are always accomodating. Chef Tony always says hello to me and, if time allows, will spend a few moments chatting with me. I always request Laurie as my server because we've become friends over the many years I've eaten there, and she can usually anticipate any of my needs. I will keep coming back as often as I am able.

    We have eaten here several times in the past and it was one of our favorites places to eat. However, this time the seating was very uncomfortable (booth) the table was so high in comparison to the seat that it felt like we were babies in a high chair. The food was good, but the noise level was so energetic that we had to shout to hear each other across the booth. Our server was excellent, so that was a plus. I will come back and try it again, but maybe next time opt for a table.

    We always have a wonderful dining experience at the Reserve at Harrahs. This time I had the lamb chops. They were so good. My husband enjoyed the Shrimp scampi. They have a lovely hostess and their waitresses are so nice. Great place for a special Occasion or just a great meal.

    Went to burn some reward credits. Started with salads, Reserve salad for me and wedge for the hubby. Both were good. Next, I got the filet and hubs got the boneless ribeye. Both were cooked exactly as requested. Split a baked potato, good. Ended with my favorite dessert, crème brûlée yum. Server Vicki was fabulous. Overall it was a good meal.
