We had enjoyed Wilf's in the past, but this will probably be the last time we go. The waiter took our drinks order, and brought them about 15 minutes later. We ordered our food and a very easy appetizer. We didn't see him again until I asked if we could at least have some bread. He came back with the "nibble plate" and bread, and we didn't get our meal until we'd been sitting there for an hour and 40 minutes!

Too much emphasis on the tableside production number dishes. I thought I was on a cruise!

We've been before and always had an awesome time with John as our server, but the female servers tonight were super gruff, not attentive, and very offputting. Having been before we stuck it out, but the people next to us were here for the first time and we're talking about leaving because of the inattentiveness of our same server and how long it was taking to get any service let alone their entrees. I know it was VDay night and busy, but the servers could have faked some enthusiasm and warmth ... especially for $100+/person. Food was good, service was horrible, but we'll try one more time and hope tonight was just an off night.

The service was excellent and they provide a great space for musicians and the music was very good/Paula Byrne Quintet. The overall experience was fun and pleasant, but they are way overpriced. The menu choices were limited due to the special occastion/VAlentine's Day without any previous mention of this when I booked reservations and nothing was posted on their website referring to this limited menu. I would recommend them to a friend based on their excellent service, but I would recommend them only for a special occasion maybe once or twice a year and I would warn my friends to ask about the menu.

RUDE! We had a reservation for 5:15 and arrived on time. As we were seated, we were told we needed to be done by 6:30. That’s a big zing and makes you feel rushed. My husband and I ALWAYS share a meal as it’s always plenty. On the menu it stated there were NO shared meals. So, what we assumed would be a lovely $75 meal for the two of us cost us $160 and we took 1/2 of each of our meals home. We were very sorry we didn’t leave after being told we had to be done by 6:30.

We left about 6:23 and the restaurant was no more than 1/2 filled, it that so did not understand the requirement that we vacate the table by 6:30.

My wife and I came here and loved every minute of it. As soon as you walk in you are greeted and welcomed. The waiter was very skilled in dining etiquette and making sure everything was perfect not only for the food but for the experience. The band was tasteful and talented as it filled the room with comforting jazz. Perfect for a date night if you just want to be close to your significant other and able to talk and have a good time. In my opinion the food should be priced higher, the ingredients all together make a wonderful assortment of flavors that do not disappoint. I would highly recommend this to anyone for multiple different occasions.

Very cozy room in a beautiful historic train station. Great music, though at times it was somewhat impacted by distracting noise from the bar (and a loudmouth bar patron) right next to the music area. Food was very good but a bit overpriced. Parking and feeling safe in the neighborhood at night can be somewhat challenging but not impossible, just put on your city attitude and plan enough time to find parking (and find your way there through all the bus zones and one-way streets).

Got a Groupon for this place and didn’t realize what and upscale place it was. The food was exceptional, especially the prime rib, which easily the best I’ve had. Piano music on our night, so not quiet. The waiter provided good service but seemed overworked in the amount of time he had to check in. Very spendy, spent $125 on 1 appetizer, 2 entrees and 5 beers, and that may have been the total after the $50 Groupon. Good special occasional spot unless you are rich.

We came in for a birthday celebration and the service was amazing! The matredee was super friendly, funny, and knew a lot about the history of the restaurant and food. The food was delicious and when my child didn't care for what she ordered, the waiter got her a new meal without a second question. We had never been to Wilf's before and we will definitely be back again!

As always, the service is what makes Wilfs stand out above all else. The food was perfection, melting steak Diane, Devine Bananas Foster and a wonderful ambiance in a historic building.

Thank you
