This is truly a long standing Portland gem of a place to dine!

We were celebrating CJ's life and the staff was understanding and kind to us.

Tableside preparation for all courses, and it was fun and wonderful tasting.

All four of us recommend Wilf's highly.

Wilf's Restaurant is an anniversary favorite for us. We are never disappointed in the food or the service. John and his team are really some of the best professionals in the restaurant business.

We especially enjoy the live music that is offered and is an equal part of the reasons why we come. We drive over 50 miles to come to Wilf's. It's so worth it.

Craig did a wonderful job of checking on us and ensuring we had everything we needed. John, head waiter, made a superb banana foster and told us the story of where it originated. The drinks and food were fantastic! The music was lovely and easy listening during our meal. We really enjoyed ourselves.

Been wanting to come to Wilf's for a while, based on reviews and the live jazz. Nice, cozy place with classic lounge charm. Reminded me of some of the places in NYC with long histories and old-school class. Was a slow night (Saturday before Halloween) so it wasn't busy at all. Service was great and very attentive. Room was set up well for variety - plenty of tables and a few booths in the lounge area; tables close to the lounge with good position and view if you want to dine and enjoy the music; other tables further back set up for more privacy and focus on dining.

Prices are definitely on the higher side but that gets you quality, ambiance and great service. Good value overall. Thumbs up and we'll be back.

This culinary gem is worth the rough surroundings. Once inside you are transported back to a time where dining was an event not just a meal. All the classic table side dishes (caesar salad, steak diane and bananas foster) are available and well executed. The addition of live Jazz makes for a can’t miss dining experience.

Excellent service and food. While some may feel the menu is a bit dated they do "old school" with great flair and attention to detail. Not too many places do tableside preparations anymore.... The Jazz trio was great, well worth the additional cover charge.

In town and was looking for a mellow bar for a meal and drinks. First time here and turns out it was a semi-quiet mid week night at the bar, but alas, a trio showed up and two “regular” singers sang with them. Had a great time enjoying the music which was largely unexpected. And Craig, at the bar, was just great. Friendly, sincere, attentive, but not hovering. That makes a great bar tender.

My husband and I love everything about Wilf's - the food, the ambience, the waitstaff and the MUSIC. Definitely try the Caesar Salad and the Cioppino. Amazing! For our anniversary dinner this year, it was a no brainer for me to make a reservation at Wilf's. It was a perfect romantic night of delicious food and jazz.

Came to listen to the music (The Bylines), have drinks and maybe a dessert. The creme brûlée was very disappointing , the Louis Martinni Cabernet was ho hum, but the Pinot Gris was delicious. The wine list on the table was not updated. We understand the challenges that the industry faces these days.

Having never dined at Wilf's, I read the five-star diner reviews with some skepticism. After all, it is in the Portland Union (Railroad) Station building. How wrong I was. Absolutely a five-star experience in every way. Would I recommend it? Enthusiastically. Will my wife and I return? With our friends.

Music was fabulous.! Avoid the Caesar salad. Great waiter! Very expensive but the music was worth it. Not traditional jazz but a pianist and singer who sang all genres of easy listening. Parking looked scary at first but it turned out fine.

My girlfriend and I went out for my birthday and it was our first time experiencing Wilf’s. The restaurant is beautiful and creates an intimate and cozy setting for any special occasion or date. We enjoyed the espresso martini’s first, while we waited for our table-side caesar salad. The salad was amazing and the maitre-d, John, even shared with us the true origin of the caesar whilst preparing at our table. My girlfriend enjoyed the french onion soup as well. For our dinner wine we decided on the Ken Wright Cellars Pinot Noir 2016. Supple raspberry, blackberry and plum fruit is smoothly mixed together, with seams of cola and chocolate. Lighter details of Italian herbs add further complexity. Wilf’s has prepared traditional Steak Diane for 47 years table-side so I figured it would be the perfect dish to pair with our pinot noir. My girlfriend loved her Wilf’s pasta. We will definitely be visiting Wilf’s in the future.

We’ve celebrated our anniversary for the past few years except 2020 but I did purchase make at home meals to support during 2020. This was a very unique and different experience that I’m not use to, service was just okay which is usually outstanding convinced another couple to join us so they would become patrons as well. Hopefully this was a one off

Great time here listening to a friend of mine sing some good music! I would say this was my first experience with “fine dining” and our waiter John was so fun and made sure we had a swell time. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants to have a fancy night out on the town!
