I took my girlfriend to WILFs this past Friday for dinner and drinks. Upon entering, we were immediately greeted with a $10 cover per person because a live jazz band was playing in the lounge. I am always fine with paying a cover for a band, but usually, if you are dining in with a reservation, I would have thought... More

TripAdvisor never lies. Well, it was as the reviews mentioned, so I knew it coming in, but was very disappointed for my mom and dad's bday dinner. The server was just downright rude and inaccurate-- I don't understand what it is, I read through the reviews and it sounds like a chronic dismissiveness, as though the ownership trains its staff...

We went there because I found a Groupon for it, and had always been curious about it being in our historical and vintage old train station. It was like being in a movie from the 40's with the big red velvet chairs, dark woods. and amazing Christmas decor which made the setting a real festive tradition. So glad we went... More

The staff, atmosphere and incredible food make this place a must. The food and staff was out of this world. I just wish I could eat more.

My husband and I were in Portland for the weekend and stumbled across this gem while in search of live jazz music (we were so disappointed to find out about the demise of Jimmy Mak's). But I am so, so happy that we walked through the door at Wilf's! Everything about the restaurant, from the velvet chairs to the soft... More

Made a reservation for 6 as we were picking someone up at the train station and thought it would be very convenient. Was told it was difficult as they expected to be very busy at the time we wanted to come (TONS of open tables when we arrived and no one filled them as the evening went on) but they... More

The dining room has more than eight tables are available. But the waiter told us, those tables are reserved. So we have to sit in the lough. Sit in the lough, each person needs to pay $10 because there is a band. This restaurant has a big opening, from the lough to the dinning area, just one step away. There... More

I've been here twice, once for light snacks and jazz and the other on a groupon for dinner and jazz. Love the place. I'm a NOLA annual visitor and this place makes me feel right at home. Cover charge of 5 pp is added to the bill. Food is tasty and not the usual american dinner fare. 25 pp before... More

Wilf's is what dining out should be about. You are greeted at your table by John, the mattordea who makes you feel at home and welcome, and attends to your every need. The entire staff is thoughtful and so attentive. The food is excellent!!! This is a restaurant where you don't see people on their cell phones, but rather conversing... More
