Our Adventures

Published on August 29, 2011 by in Reviews


This article by Judy Pace is republished courtesy of Stutzman Services

My husband and I recently had reservations at Wilfs Restaurant in Portland. Wilfs in located in the old Union Station on NW 6th, which is a lively area with travelers coming and going on the train as well as the hustle and bustle of the downtown area. As you enter the restaurant, you begin to take a step back in time. The lights are dimmed, the tables are all set with white table clothes and dinnerware and the chairs are red wing backed which turn out to be very comfortable. Very large chandeliers are dotted across the ceiling and thick red velvet drapes frame the windows. All of this is set to the mood of jazz playing in the background. We were made to feel very comfortable and relaxed…no rushing here! Take your time, it is glorious!

We had a long leisurely dinner which started with a Seasonal cheese plate, Caesar salad for two that was made for us at our table side. How fun is that? For dinner, I had the PORK LOIN with coconut pineapple marinade, cilantro jicama slaw and coconut rum basmati rice. May I say, it was FABULOUS! My husband had the SPICE RUBBED CHICKEN that was battered and fried and came with ancho stewed black beans, grilled pineapple rings, and raspberry compote, which also was very good! And then, what better way to finish off the meal…dessert of course! The crème’ brule was amazing!

Now keep in mind, they also have live jazz that starts about 8:00pm. Some of Portland’s best jazz artists perform Wednesday through Saturday. Again, there is no rush…sit back in your wingback chair, sip on your favorite beverage and enjoy the music, as long as you like. We did! We spent 3 wonderful hours!

In case you are wondering…yes, we will go back! Until next time, happy dining!
