    The web site said the live music starts at 7pm so we made an 8pm dinner reservation thinking the jazz and bar would be open until 10 or 11, the bar closed and the music stopped at 9. We had only been there for an hour! No mention on the website that the music is only for 2 hours. The restaurant had run out of half the main menu items.

    Entire evening was terrific except for a table of loud talkers who interfered with our ability to hear the music for which we paid a cover charge. JoAnne always does her best to keep her patrons happy and but the talkers could not be contained.

    We always love Wilfs. The Jazz is extraordinary and Tony Pacini and his group is the best. We were treated to a wonderful live jazz experience. Our waiter Douglas was also responsible for making the evening even better with perfectly timed and attentive service. The food was delicious with a menu that pleases many different palates. A great evening.

    Wolf’s is a great place for jazz and other music. But also a very nice spot for food and drinks. The ambience is exactly what a jazz club should be!!

    Wilfs has been our special "go to" for special occasions for years. We return time and time again because we can always rely on exquisite service, a perfect meal and wonderful music. Their entree special of Steak Diane is an outstanding entree, prepared table side with flourish and pleasant conversation. We always feel welcomed and appreciated and look forward to our dining experience each time we return.

    Every dish I have eaten at Wilf's was delicious and prepared with savory flair. But I go there very much for the atmosphere and just amazing music. Wednesday through Saturday evenings there is live jazz also delicious with savory flair. The air is charged with history and tradition, just what feeds my soul.

    Took more than 20 minutes before we had to call the hostess over for water and menus. Salad was prepared tableside - way too much vinegar, lettuce was drenched. Steak was undercooked. Veggies came from a frozen bag and didn't even have seasoning. Atmosphere was cool. Band was nice to listen to. The gentleman that fixes plates tableside was entertaining - good story teller.
