As always Wilf's was excellent. The staff is always great, food is very good, you can taste the alcohol in the drinks (not watered), music always great. James, one of the servers is a great example of excellent customer service, actually the definition of it. A little spendy but well worth it. It's always a 5 star experience. More

Our server was great, ambiance great as we were seated next to the fireplace. Food was very good. Several in our group had the Tillamook grilled cheese and tomato soup that was outstanding. We started with the glazed brussel sprouts appetizer - fantastic! My only comment is that several of the other dishes could have been more heavily seasoned - this may just be my palate though. Thank you. More

Contemporary American | Pearl District, Portland

Everyone in our group of 5 was more than satisfied with their food. I got the brick burger and it was absolutely delicious. Everyone considered the soft pretzel outstanding. It was enormous, but we almost ordered a second. Which turned out to be a good call because the portions are hefty! And we were generously given two big salads of our choice while we waited for two pizzas that were only a few minutes behind our other entrees. What would have been only a slight frustration became a dining windfall. The warm mushroom salad we got for free left us particularly happy about the late pizzas. Our service was outstanding. More

The food and service are both incredible! They have a broad selection of food, great Happy Hour menu, and many delicious gluten free options as well (be sure to specifically request each dish as GF though). While this is a fine dining restaurant and does not have a kids menu, they went out of their way to accommodate the kids with us. More

Girls night tasting wine! We had a great space in the lounge area to feel privacy, and the service was amazing! Wednesday night staff is my favorite and I never want anyone else! The only criticism is that it is set up for summer, not a cozy winter or chilly evening spot. At least not tonight. I am sure they add a different ambience for cooler evenings. See you next time!
