PLANNING A SPECIAL EVENT?

Our semi-private dining rooms are best suited for groups of 12 to 40 guests. Your event manager will handle all the details while you enjoy your event. Choose from cocktails + appetizers, a family-style buffet, or full-plated meals all filled with fresh from-scratch food. Our expert sommelier will pair hand-selected wine with your custom menu to match your taste and mood. Let us focus on the details to ensure that your event is inappropriately good.

We love J. Wilson’s so much we go every Sunday. Not only is the food delicious but the staff are professional and so friendly. We especially love Anna and Alex who have memorized my toddler’s order and put in the order as soon as we sit down. If you haven’t tried J. Wilson’s you are missing out!
