Excellent evening. Matre 'd John was wonderful and enjoyable to visit with. James was a great waiter and very attentive to whatever we needed. We were looking forward to the live music, but apparently they cancelled that afternoon. Food was absolutely excellent! We will be back!

We have been going to Wilfs for 10 years at least once a month . The service is perfect, the food always delicious and the atmosphere, charming and elegant and comfortable all at the same time. And the musical talent they showcase in the bar several nights a week is terrific too: particularly the Tony Pacini Trio last Friday of the month.

We went to Wilf's to celebrate our anniversary. We have dined there 2-3 times before and expected to have another memorable meal. Last time we both ordered Steak Diane and it was delicious, plus it was cooked at our table which was very fun. This time, we started with the seafood salad, which was outstanding. For entrees, I ordered Steak Diane again and my husband had the halibut. Unfortunately, the fish was overcooked and dry. When the waitress inquired about it, she immediately took it back to the kitchen and had another halibut prepared. The second time it was better but still overcooked. For dessert we split the chocolate cheesecake, which was delicious. All in all, it was a good meal but the halibut wasn't up to Wilf's usual standards.

I really appreciated the call from the restaurant to confirm my reservation and to see whether I wanted to sit in the restaurant or the bar for the entertainment. Food and service was excellent and the ambiance was extra special with the Christmas decorations that made the old building even more special.

The classy holiday decorations are so beautiful. John is the most gracious and fun host ever. The food was exquisite, the service was great, the live music was good but too loud for us to have comfortable conversation. We dine at Wilfs multiple times every year and always are pleased with everything.

The food was delicious, but very pricey. The service was quit good but we were there when it was very busy with a private party. We felt a little ripped off when we were brought a prosecco as we sat down for which we were charged two different prices (they had run out of the first offering) .

Went to see Bello Voci perform their Christmas show and enjoyed the location and food. Wilfs is located in the train station and holds all of that old time charm and architecture.

I really enjoyed this experience. The service was excellent! The jazz music wasn't too loud but yet provided a different atmosphere of dining. I felt like this was a relaxed fine dining experience - my type of dining.

I always fear how the service will be when using a Groupon ( I typically get the feeling that the server thinks we are cheap) - I also get this same feeling when I don't order alcohol (As a person in recovery, it's frustrating when restaurants push alcohol so much!) - I just tend to believe if the server does not think the bill is adding up, the service declines. HOWEVER, this did not happen here. Service was great!

The food was good - but for the price I expected a little bit more. I had the filet and there were way too many strong flavors in the dish - I barely was able to enjoy the taste of the meat. The french onion soup was perfect! My boyfriend had the pork - which he said was a little dry. The price did not match the quality. The experience outweighed the dinner for me.

The parking and location isn't great. Again, with the cost of everything they should provide free and safe parking.
