During my recent visit, I dined alone at the Reserve. I heartily recommend the bacon crusted scallops with Israeli couscous for an appetizer; wonderful combination of flavors and melt-in-your-mouth scallops. The house salad (greens with fresh berries, candied pecans, Manchego cheese) would have been better...More

The meatloaf served to my wife bears no description. Solid, nondescript taste. My steak was OK at best and the potato wedges were obviously reheated and totally dried out.

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...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.
