Catering and Events

Things that endure: Humor, optimism and celebrations, no matter how small.

Cooking endures; it brings people together in a way that offers comfort, even joy!


catering and event image

Let’s look forward to one night, one celebration, one event and make an ‘experience’ you will always remember with joy and laughter. To create a moment, it’s just an email away.

Wilfs starts with the basics. We ask our clients to provide several keywords to describe the atmosphere they hope to create and then Wilfs works toward expressing their vision.

Wilfs uses only the freshest ingredients from our Northwest area, organic and hormone-free whenever possible, and can provide vegan and vegetarian options as well. Wilfs is proud to be a “sustainable” company of the Northwest. Wilfs can create a menu for any range of budgets. Let us create a menu especially for your event, at the restaurant or your location site.

To reserve the main dining room or the entire restaurant, a minimum of food and beverage is required. This amount is determined by the day of the week and month of the year. Wilfs is closed Sunday-Tuesday, but will open for a private event, with a minimum that is more flexible than a Friday or Saturday evening!
