A great place to relax before boarding the train, or while waiting for someone. I came here on a miserable (aka rainy) Portland day before departing to Eugene, OR. I was starving - after landing on a bumpy flight from Oakland. Staff was super friendly, and I love the old school vibe. I grew up with that type of stuff - the daughter of a single dad who never cooked. I had delicious "Wilfs Pasta" (aka beef stroganoff) and a tasty cup of tomato soup that was on special. Wilfs attracts quite an interesting mix of people from the train station, but also a lot of regulars. I hit it off with the manager, who has been working there for 35 years. She was hilarious, honest, funny and totally the kind of manager that would make me want to be a regular at Wilfs if it was located in my town. The old school feel, and attitude is what I like. I'll be back, next time I hit the train - hopefully I'll catch some jazz!

Great HH between 530-7pm in case you're early to the train station and want a snack/brew. Note: seat yourself

I took my father to wilf's as the part of his 80th birthday present. The train ride from Seattle was over an hour late, so we missed lunch hour menu, which wasn't a huge deal for my dad.We stood for a very long time waiting for anyone to appear to seat us; though there were only a few people in the restaurant, there wasn't single server, host, or barkeep in sight. When the hostess finally appeared from a door behind the reservation desk, she walked past us as if we didn't exist. She told us that we could sit anywhere in the restaurant - except in over by the windows. The hostess was borderline hostile when I asked, as it was my fathers 80th (we had made reservations for lunch and I had sent a note telling them it was his birthday) if we could sit by the window so my dad could watch the trains pass - she hesitated and then took us over to the only table that had not been set - not even a tablecloth (the others were all set with white tablecloths) and did so in a rude and overtly hostile manner. I was somewhat shocked at the way they treated my gentle 80 father for his birthday, and even though the food was good, and served quickly per my request as we had a limited time to eat because of the late arrival of our train... I really wish I had chosen some other restaurant, as this was a once in lifetime event for myself and my dad. Do yourself a favor and DO NOT take your special event, party, or birthday celebration to Wilf's Restaurant in Portland Oregon. ps. Read the glowing reviews carefully - quite a few give 5 stars on everything and the writing seems overly polished and, in my opinion, have likely been paid for to raise their ratings -. The most telling review of all is the one where the management's response to a complaint was "So what."

This was one of the worst experience I have ever had. Made reservations 10 days before Valentine Day. Got a call mid week to confirm our reservations, which I did. Arrived 15 minutes early for our reservations, and was seated at a small table with folding chairs. About the size of a card table. We were put in the aisle, and looking around there were a lot of open tables with nice chairs and not in the walk area. When we walked in we saw a sign on the desk that they were charging a $12.00 per person cover charge for the band. When the waiter came to our table we asked if since we were having dinner was there still a cover charge, of course he said yes. We also asked why the small table in aisle and his reply was well it is Valentine's Day. We were never told about the cover charge when I made the reservation, or when I called back to confirm the reservations. I felt like they gave very poor service and did not care about trying to please us, or anyone else. Also noted that the prices on the menu where higher because it was Valentine's Day, which should have cover any additional expenses they may have had. We left without eating, and had to try and make the best of our evening. I plan to tell everyone and have no intentions of very going back. It ruin my Valentine's Day Night!

Place is amazing. Old school vibe, think Mad Men. Steak Diane and other dishes made table side. Would highly recommend to anyone and out of towners.

I eat at Wilfs every week. One of my favorite places. Their salads are the best anywhere along with all their other choices. If you're looking for great food and service with a Classic Portland atmosphere, this is the place for you!

Last July we had a company farewell dinner for a coworker who was retiring after 40 years of working for the company. The entire staff and environment was extremely welcoming, and John, the Maitre d', was a fantastic host. If you go, make sure someone at the table orders a Steak Diane, or a Caesar salad, as Michael will give you a great table side cooking display of these items, as well as a little fun history of the food. All in all, I know our coworker had a great evening celebrating his retirement party at such a wonderful place and I look forward to going there for my next special night out.

I have now known both Adele and Candice for years now and they have helped me with personal and company dinners over the years, and our experience has always been fantastic. There is not a place in town I would rather visit for great jazz and wonderful food, and I am looking forward to my next experience with them soon.
