Fabulous! A true gem. Old world elegance, the finest service, and excellent food. Soft jazz at the bar added to the warm and wonderful ambiance without disrupting our conversation. Highly recommend.
Food was way over valued from what we were charged.
Great place for happy hour! Food was delicious and James our waiter/bartender was delightful!
I can't say enough about John, Douglas and crew. We were celebrating a marriage, three birthdays and a funeral for our family. We chose Wilf's for a variety of reasons: quality of atmosphere, quality of food, quality of service and overall ambiance. The dinner was perfectly paced, the attention by the staff was caring and timely but not overbearing, Kerry, the magician added a different level of fun, interaction and levity. My out of town family has stated that they don't want to dine anywhere else when they're in town. Wilf's has been my now husband and I's go to place for special occasions and we love that we were able to share that with our family. Wilf's, thank you so much for your kindness and care. Being with you guys at the end of a very tough day was exactly what we needed. Here's to seeing you again soon!! <3
Food was good but not great. Service was excellent.. wanted to make sure we were happy. We will go back.
Service and overall experience cannot be matched. The quilty of banter is unsurpassed in this town. The people-watching is the ultimate. The banter between the bar and the manager is to die for. It's upscale and homey at the same time. Tableside cooking is endearing and a real experience. The food is good, and yes, there is a LOT of great food in Portland, so we aren't saying it will be the best steak that you ever had, we are saying you'll have a really great meal that is an experience if you order the steak Diane. You go for the overall package to include live entertainment. No, not the best singers with the piano player, but they were good and the experience overall us what it's about. A group of folks who all seem to know each other passing the microphone, some better than others...Sure, when we first sat down there was a chatty child behind us and my first inclination was to be annoyed, but he quickly quieted when the music began so all was well. A child with manners in Portland...shocking, I know :) If you want an overall fun date night experience, go to Wilfs. You'll love the staff, James, and John especially.
Side note - we've been into Wilfs other nights later in the evening and the entertainers have been phenomenal. Get the table side dessert, they do cherries jubilee and sometimes baked Alaska.
Great food and the live jazz was nice to listen to. We had the prime rib special. Too bad they didn’t have any horse radish sauce with some spice to it. Service was good. Cherry jubilee was excellent.
John, Maitre D, has been there for ever it seems and he is one of the staples of the restaurant that keep us coming back. He is friendly, personable, professional, and attentive. His service is impeccable and he absolutely drives the place. I can't remember our waiter's name, as it actually left us with the opposite impression. He had a phony sugary demeanor and seemed put off any time we made a request that required him to leave the table and come back with something. The music was a little loud but since we had a table in the back it wasn't bad. This is an old time upscale restaurant that feels like you've gone back in time several decades to experience upper class dining. The location is less than desirable as you're surrounded by homeless and street citizens everywhere you turn. I would only advise you get here by cab or uber; I would not feel comfortable parking my vehicle in this area or walking through the parking lot or surroundings to get to the restaurant.
Loved the vibe, live music. Overall it was a wonderful experience
The Tony Pacini trio was delightful to listen to and my burger off the bar menu was excellent.
Been here several times over several years. Food was much better this time than more recent times — probably a new chef? — had some new Italian-influenced dish in the menu that were generally well prepared. The place is still too overpriced; we always come with a Groupon that makes it more reasonable if one doesn’t order sides. I came with a designated birthday on my booking; all I got was a quick Happy Birthday from the waiter when it was mentioned.
This is our third visit to Wilfs. We brought our in-laws specifically for the quiet atmosphere. Unfortunately, the night we were there, there was a very large party of guests who were loud, sabotaging our plan for an intimate evening with our family. Although this is not the restaurant’s fault and we don't hold that against them, we did not expect the atmosphere to be like a loud brew pub.
Ambience was great and service was nice, but for the price, I expected MUCH more from the food. It was so underwhelming I would have rather stayed in our hotel room and had a Domino's pizza. Salads were swimming in dressing. Pasta was very plain. Risotto was bland. And dessert (which we hoped would be the saving grace of our meal), a New York cheesecake, was so incredibly disappointing. Putty-like texture, and didn't taste like cheesecake.
That being said, the service was so nice and attentive, and we enjoyed the live jazz. Unfortunately, if the bill is over $100 for two, we expect the food to be enjoyable.
Our particular server seemed very experienced but not at all interested in helping us. Our server and maitre’d both seemed very stressed about the private event. We were rushed to prepare our order decision, but then were abandoned for quite a while before we could actually place an order.
The ambiance is very well done. It is somber and pleasant. The food, however, was decidedly bland and uninteresting. Every piece seems to be fresh out of the freezer after being delivered by a Sysco truck.
Delicious food, great service, and wonderful live jazz music. Some items are prepared tableside which is a fun experience. Food portions are typical of a 5 star restaurant, on the small side. Soup or salad are extra.
Lovely Christmas decor. Excellent service and food. My friend really enjoyed his birthday at Wilfs. We always love the jazz.
Anniversary dinner !
Wilfs is our favorite go to place for all celebrations. John and Douglas do a stupendous job making us feel like royalty with their personal attention. John could do a one man show with his fascinating stories he shares while preparing tableside dishes. The live jazz music is an extra treat. The food’s taste and presentation are consistently superb. A classy and fun evening out!
I've recommended to several of my friends! It's a pretty penny but the Thanksgiving email treat helped me out a ton. Craig and Geegee were very kind and welcoming, I never had to look around to ask for help.
Was expecting a move dimly lit environment with a larger band with performance.
Was very disappointed in this part of our evening.
the ambiance was great, John and Douglas were very entertaining. It was a surprise that the martinis were upgraded (for an added fee) without our knowledge. hmm don't know about that. The mahi mahi was dry and the roasted potatoes were cold on my plate. three other plates were good. Even though they ask about special celebrations..they charge for the birthday cake. The bar entertainment was very nice.
We LOVED it! Everything was perfect, from drinks to food to music and this spot has become one of our go-to places we look forward to whenever we go to Portland now, especially if we want to combine great food with great music just can’t be beat! 5*
We had martinis and steak Diane and it was absolutely fantastic!
We love the atmosphere at Wilf's. The food and the service was very good, they treat you well!
We had a great time!
All staff were awesome!! Food was fresh and plentiful!
Hadn't been to Wilf's for years but wanted to connect with an old friend to catch up. The staff is absolutely wonderful. They left us alone when we wanted to chat but were right there for us when we needed anything. The live music is always a treat and the musicians are absolutely world class. I had forgotten that they charge a cover and it was not apparent while booking the table online, nor did anyone mention it when I chatted with them on the phone. You're told about it when you check in but if you're not planning on that expense then it's not a welcomed surprise. We both had the catch of the day plate and the food was fine. The salmon could have had more flavor, in my opinion. Overall it's still a great place to go and I'll definitely be back!
Amazing... this experience was absolutely perfect 😭 everything was incredible! The service was like nothing I’ve ever experienced!
Real Old fashion etiquette! Incredible! WILL definitely
This is the perfect place for great food, great music and an atmosphere of warmth and fun.
Waitress was not friendly actually bordering on rude. It was as if we were bothering her. We’ve had her before. Probably will not return.
Excellent service, amazing food and great live music. Beautiful restaurant.
If you go late for the music, ask to be seated right in front of the musicians. Diners around us were very noisy.
On our way to Seattle by train. Our service and meal was exceptional! Our server, Douglas Martell, is a consummate professional! Table side Caesar and Shrimp Scampi were amazing. Live music was an additional treat!!
We had not been to Wolfe’s in a long time. A friend of mine was preforming their for a class recital from PCC. Great experience. John, our waiter was fantastic. Very professional, knowledgeable, and extremely helpful. He was able to adapt to our food issues with excellent suggestions and substitutions.
The music capped off the evening.
Can’t wait to do it again.
Chairs in desperate need of repair everything else was nice
The Saturday night energy with Devin Phillips & Friends is fabulous. Love the Sax and love Jazz. Combination is made for a wonderful night of listening. The Bar food--in this case--the hamburger was delicious and the service could not be more attentive and accommodating. If you love Jazz--you need to go here.
Wilf's Steak Diane is outstanding and we had another wonderful dinner there. We started with some delicious wine and the seafood salad. Then we had the Steak Diane, which is cooked at the table by the maitre di, who is very personable and entertaining. The wine list is extensive and we always enjoy sitting in those big red chairs and toasting each other. Wilf's is a great place for a memorable meal on a special occasion.
We have the most wonderful family celebratory dinners at Wilf's. They are gracious and accommodating! We had a party of 14 this time, from perfectly crafted cocktails, a diverse and affordable wine list to beautifully prepared food, it was all enjoyed. The live music and magician add to the warm and comfortable atmosphere. We always enjoy the Steak Diane prepared tableside, this is a rare experience and very fun. Many thanks to the Staff, they are second to none in their appreciation of the dining experience of their patrons! Thanks again, for a wonderful evening. It will be another treasured memory.
Amazing service as always
Wolfs is an under appreciated jewel. They offer great jazz performances at very reasonable prices. Food is solid and drinks are excellent. We have gone back several times to listen to the really enjoyable jazz performances. A great venue.
