My wife and I had a great dinner at The Reserve Steakhouse-Joliet, IL starting with a green salad then sea bass cooked to perfection on a bed of greens and a side of roasted potatoes prepared by Chef Tony. Our server, Sherry, was polite, friendly, efficient and spot on with our requests. This may be the best restaurant in Joliet...don't miss out on this gem.
The food was delicious! The Amish chicken was seasoned so well and tasted delicious. Our waitress was attentive and made excellent recommendations as to what to order. I would love to dine here again and again!
This restaurant has changed dramatically in the last year. The new chef is fantastic and service was outstanding. Patrick is an asset and we will be back.
Outstanding food and service was great!!
The bar service was slow and would probably ordered twice as many drinks if they didn’t take as long.
Really enjoyed our server and host. Dessert was great!!
Will definitely return and try to incorporate a casino visit!
Food was excellent except for the oysters they looked flat
Went for Birthday celebration. Food was superb as was the service. Have eaten here many times and never been disappointed. Highly recommend.
The blackened shrimp pasta was excellent. Large portion. Six nice sized shrimp.
Whenever we attend the Rialto we always go to the RESERVE!!!
ALWAYS the BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My wife and I each had blackened salmon on a bed of wild rice, carrots and mixed berries with a side of sautéed crimini mushrooms and a salad of greens, berries and candied walnuts. The Reserve Steakhouse in Joliet IL is fine dining at it's best. Chef Tony went out of his way to prepare our meals not only our specific dietary needs but also to our individual tastes. He even came over to us to make sure that the meal was to our liking. Our server, Sherry , was very friendly, polite, efficient and sensitive to our special requests. My wife and I have been dining there for many years as the quality of food preparation and consistency of flavors makes this a wonderful place to dine.
The Reserve has a nice wine list. Our waitress pushed us to order our meal when we were just ordering some wine, after waiting about 15 minutes to be offered a drink. We ordered steaks: filet and a T-bone. the medium came out well done. Disappointing. was looking forward to a nice meal.
Server was amazing. Very funny and great conversation. Food was very good. A little expensive. But good. Happy over all
The Reserve is great place to have a date night . Food and drinks are very good. They have a specialty drink called Ladies night out, try it, amazing !!! Steaks are also very good ,
Really great food and impeccable service. Food was promptly served. I look forward to many more visits when my wife and I are in the Joliet area.
I love this restaurant. The food is always fresh and the service is outstanding. They're very accommodating. Can't wait to go back. You don't need a special occasion to come here it's a great place to come any day of the week.
Birthday party, party of 10 in private room. Ordered 3 small fillets, one was 2" tall, two others were like hamburgers. VERY unprofessional. One wait staff, needed more drinks all night. Room was nice, as expected. Food mediocre, could of been better like past occasions. Probably won't return. Quests disappointed.
A bit pricey, but food was excellent. Best prime rib I've had in many years. $105 for two, no drinks. Everything ala carte
We go here a lot. One of our favorites. Great food, service, and experience. We try to bring friends and family.
It was my 70 th B-Day....very very nice memory.....Our server was so attentive and special
Fine dining in Joliet. My wife and I had a bruschetta appetizer followed by really tasty Chilean sea bass. Wonderful service.
Terrible service the waitress disappeared for over a half hour. The hostess couldn’t find her. We sat with our dirty dishes on the table and needed something more to drink. The food was sub par too. Never going there again.
Our server was good but the water lady never came back to our table. My husband asked for his steak medium well but it looked as if it was medium rare. I asked for well done but it was burnt. We had crab cakes for an appetizer but they were cold and tasted like they were the frozen ones you buy at the grocery store. The mashed potatoes with bacon were the best thing we had.
I live in Valparaiso, IN but try to get to Harrah's in Joliet whenever possible because it is a smoke-free casino. I always try to dine at The Reserve Steakhouse at least once per trip. I'm usually dining alone and can attest that in most places, that means marginal service, however that has never been the case at The Reserve. On this trip my waitress, Vicky, took great care of me and kept apologizing because the place was packed and the kitchen slammed. I grew up in a restaurant family and spent most of my adult life as a waitress for additional income so I was well aware of the situation. I think it's nice that the restaurant has the support of the locals as is evidenced by the large number of families toting in babies in car seats with young children in tow. I just wish people would consider they're entering a place that caters to adults and, as such, maybe a sitter would be a good idea for their night out.
Chef was excellent and came to our table to see how everything was. I misread the menu on sizes of steak and they still corrected it with another steak. excellent staff!!!!
Another Great night at the Reserve ! Valentine Day 2018, full house. 3 Course tasting menu offered, or ordering off the menu. Had reservation to make sure I was able to dine in. Chef offered Pallet cleaner between courses. Serving time was spot on. Serve was most helpful and courteous. Always enjoy eating there, even on Holidays and special occasions. Will return. AAA+++
I have dined at The Reserve many times. Previously, I had always had a good meal. This time was an exception.
My husband and I were at The Reserve to celebrate Valentine's Day. We shared an Oysters Rockefeller appetizer that was outstanding! For our main course, we both ordered the Filet Tips listed under "Chef's Specialties". It comes with mashed potato, cippollini onions, bacon and mushroom bordelaise.
The potato, onions, bacon and bordelaise was very good. However, the main course of the meal, the "Filet" Tips, were NOT. Some pieces of the beef were tender, but both my husband and I encountered several very tough, chewy, pieces of beef.
I don't know why the down grade in food quality, but don't think we will be eating at The Reserve again.
If you are looking for a good meal in the downtown Joliet area, walking distance from Harrah's Joliet, try:

Was very satisfied with the whole experience..food was perfectly prepared and service was excellent!
Great as always
Overpriced, nothing special. I will say the wine I chose was the best apart of the meal, it was the Voigner.
It was good but a bit overpriced for what it is. Our server Amy was excellent. Just got the price do not think I would go back. My husband was happy with his steak but my scallops were slightly undercooked for the larger one. The French onion soup was very good as well.
good food good time we enjoy food our time together. lot of fun there.
Service was great. Ordered a t-bone steak, was so salty couldn't eat it, baked potato over cooked, wasn't impressed.
The Reserve is always a "dependable" place to eat. The food is very good and the level of service has been steadily improving.
Would be nice if entrees include a side. Appetizer offerings could be more generous in portion size for the money...same can be said for the desserts.
Steak is so good. Tender and juicy, large portion.
The food was GREAT. Jessica was a GREAT server. Not pushy at all, but there when needed. Very comfortable booth to sit in. So an overall 5 stars !!!!! And 2 thumbs up to the chef.
Everything was fantastic and we were treated wonderfully by our waitress. Started with lobster tempura and ended with flourless chocolate cake. Everything in between was superb. Loved the passion fruit sorbet mid way through!
We told our server that we were not in a hurry and she was perfect in letting us enjoy a nice leisurely dinner. The food was excellent and wine service was excellent. Tracey did an awesome job!
Food was good. The only thing was we asked the waitress about a certain dish and she could not answer us because she was a vegetarian
Great food and service as usual. We use The Reserve for Birthday and anniversary dinners and have never been disappointed. Our waitresses have always been knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. Keep up the good work!
Just great. Really enjoyed everything from appitizers to desert. Good job Reserve
Very disappointed. Ordered Baked Onion Soup, it came in a tiny cup with a piece of white cheese on top, it was cold and unappetizing. Sent it back.
Ordered the Sea Bass, which was ok, but cold. We watched as the plates sat for 10 minutes, ready while our waitress ignored them. We ordered carrot cake which was awful. For the prices they charged they should be ashamed of themselves. Totally BAD. Do not bother.
