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.

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!

 (San Francisco)·Dined on January 7, 2018

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.

Had difficulties making a reservation. Could not book a table of 8 on open table, called restaurant, could only leave a message during their open working hours, 2 days later and 3 messages the restaurant final calls me back, would have been no reservations for my desired date, so I made 2 four tops on open table for my desired time and one for 15 minutes within desired time. Reserve was available to combined the tables for my desired time. The reason for the dinner was a special 85 birthday. We let the restaurant know when they finally confirmed the reservation however it was never passed on to the server that evening. Big disappointment. Took well over 30 minutes to get our 1st drink, waitress wanted to get an appetizer order before offering to get drinks. Dined here at Reserve many times always have been happy with food and service, but unfortunately it was a bit disappointing for this special occasion.

Love Harrahs Steakhouse in Joliet. The food is always great as well as the service. Reservations are encougraged. Everytime we have been there it has been very busy. The French onion soup and Filet Steak are one of my favorites. My husband loves the massive T-bone steak. Our waitress this last time was very sweet and accomadating. I also liked the warm bread that they serve as well as the Ladies night out drink ( very tasty). It is also very quiet in there so I do not recommend bringing children.

Love the reserve, just a little disappointed that each time I go, the servings get smaller and smaller. Two weeks ago, got the scallop appetizer, 3 scallops went back got it again, 2 scallops.
The advertised apple tart desert is really not good, picture looks delicious but the apples are not cooked enough and the flavor is very bland. I did very much enjoy my meal of artic char though and have never had a meal there I did not thoroughly enjoy.
