Went to dinner for a 21st birthday. Food was excellent. Waitress (Joan) was outstanding. Boneless ribeye is awesome. Charred just right on the outside, tender inside.

My family had dinner here in January to celebrate a couple birthdays. The food and service were fantastic. My husband had a steak with some kind of chili rub on it and says it was the best steak he has ever had.

The atmosphere at the Range is great but that is only one part of the experience. The other parts are service and food. Our server was very good but appeared to be more attentive to regulars. We get that and that is not why we only gave an average score. The average score was due to how the hostess didn't... More

We had a wonderful dining experience, the sea bass melted in your mouth My guest had pork chops and said they were delightful. The atmosphere was nice we had a great table. The food was so good we decided we would come back the following weekend. Our dining experience was comparable to any fine dining experience in downtown Chicago.

Food is below average, service is slow, banquet style at best. Steak way under cooked , potatoes no flavor. Worst tasting mashed potato. The wedge salad was good. Brushetta was terrible, also had the bread pudding for desert no the best.

My husband and I booked dinner reservations to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. Our reservations were for 7pm on Saturday, but not having eaten all day, I was FAMISHED, so I called and asked if our reservations could be moved to 6pm. No problem! We showed up promptly at 6pm and were seated in a secluded booth in a back... More

My experience at the Reserve was divine! The service was excellent and the food was extraordinary. I had the scallops, calamari, basil tomato and mozzarella cheese salad, lasagna with spinach and chicken, and the chocolate cake. It was all flavorful and delicious. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone. It is an upscale yet comfortable dining experience that everyone should... More

My experience at the Reserve was superb! The customer service was excellent. Maggie (our server) was very informative and helpful since it was my first time there. I got scallops for a starter; they were fantastic!! My salad was very flavorful (the house salad) and my steak was cooked to perfection. Again, the staff was fantastic and I can't wait... More
