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!

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
