We had a wonderful time! The service was top notch. We ordered three table side prepared dishes, the Caesar, steak Diane and Diablo coffee. Each were entertaining and delicious! We can’t say enough about the service. While you are at a fine dining restaurant the service was impeccable without being pretentious.
The jazz music was also beautiful. Perfect volume and fun song selections. It was just a fun evening.

We went to listen to Carey Campbell sing. She and the pianist were terrific. We had dinner and a couple glasses of wine. Everything was very nice and we will go back again.

Service was friendly and attentive without feeling too over the top. Manager came to the table twice, which was great. Cocktails and wine were very good.
We were there for New Year’s Eve. Jazz trio was fantastic!
Food was as good as i have had anywhere! Will be back!

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.
