Dream with Dean peaked at 15 on the Billboard 200.[2] The album features "Everybody Loves Somebody" with a quartet accompaniment, Martin was to re-record the song with strings later in 1964, and it would become his second single to top the Billboard Hot 100.

Professional ratings
Review scores
Source Rating
Allmusic 3/5 stars[1]

The initial Billboard review from 22 August 1964 praised the selection of material on the album and wrote that "As long as the performer is Dean Martin, you've got to see the words "sales" and "airplay" light up".[3]

Joe Viglione on Allmusic.com gave the album three stars out of five. Viglione said that if the album had "one drawback, it is that the 12 songs are incessant in their providing the same atmosphere...not only a very pleasant listening experience, it shows what a tremendous vocalist Dean Martin truly was". Vigilone describes Martin as performing as if "he were a lounge singer at 1:15 a.m. as the Saturday night crowd is dwindling".[1]
