We ate at the Reserve while staying at Harrah's. We had a wonderful waitress, who started out slow, but got better. For appetizers we had the Lobster Tempura, 2 pieces for $16 and scallops, 3 pieces for $15. Luckily for me, it was half price wine night! We both had the lobster bisque which was just as delicious and rich... More

I've had many meals at the Reserve Steak House. But the Reserve doesn't have just great steaks, they also have various fish platters. I enjoyed lobster on Good Friday along with some delicious Crème Brulee for dessert. The atmosphere is quiet and the place wasn't very crowded. All in all, an enjoyable meal.

Located inside the Harrah's Casino, the Reserve is Joliet's best and priciest restaurant. Classy décor, extensive wine list, a nice variety of appetizers and entrees, attentive service made for a marvelous birthday celebration for our twin sons and their dates.

We were very disappointed in the quality of the steaks and food overall. We expected a lot better quality for the money and for all the great things we heard about the Reserve. On a positive note the hostess and waiter were outstanding.

First time to dine @ The Reserve and was very pleased with the excellent dinners. The dining room is located in a distant corner away from the casino. It has a subtly refined decor, no pretense of grandeur. Excellent service, plenty of staff. We ordered a pear, blue cheese salad and a wedge salad. Large portions, fresh and delicious. One... More

First had the crab cakes at this restaurant years ago, and have ordered them every time we went back over the years - but no more. They're listed as Lump Crab cakes, but there were not any "lumps" to be found, not even slivers . Tried the candied bacon appetizer also - and we've found a new winner. Steaks are... More

Sink your teeth into something special at The Reserve, the Harrah's Joliet fine dining restaurant where steakhouse burgers and meatloaf stand alongside pasta dishes and traditional steak and seafood entrees.Start your evening with an appetizer like house bacon, jumbo lump crab cakes or lobster bisque - and then grab your fork and knife and cut into a boneless or bone-in ribeye, filet or New York strip. But be sure to save room for famous desserts like tiramisu, fruit crepes or pineapple upside down cake.
