The building is very beautifully decorated and well put together. Its not the largest of areas but still roomy enough. The food is well prepared but expect to pay a tidy sum for it. Its not a place you could dine in too often but nice for the "special" occasion. The bar area is very nice and they do happy... More

We were in Hood River for 2 nights and this restaurant was recommended by friends who live here. We made a Wednesday night reservation through Open Table and totally (and unknowingly) lucked out, because Wednesday nights in February are 'two for one' - the price of the cheaper entree is credited. To start, the drinks are fabulous! I had a... More

We only had drinks but the food looked good. Sat at the bar and had a great time watching the bartender. It was fun and fascinating. Would like to try dinner one of these nights. Nice wine list.

My wife and I with three other couples shared a great experience at Celilo recently. We sat in the 'semi private' room for a celebration dinner and were treated to a uniformly excellent meal with really attentive, pleasant and helpful staff. The price was very reasonable too, considering the amount we ate and drank! The restaurant itself has a great... More

A Hood River favorite for upscale dining. Always delicious food and wonderful ambiance. The best fine dining in all of The Gorge.

Dropped in for a little lunch after driving the fruit loop...beautiful warm sunny day so we grabbed a seat outside. We had a salad with grilled shrimp and chilled asparagus soup...well prepared and good flavor. Perfect for an 80+ degree day in April.

Chef Ben Sten has made this restaurant into a destination, a reason to go to Hood River. Seasonal, locally sourced, all natural and served by an excellent and professional wait staff. You will not be disappointed.

I hate to write a bad review. But our experience last night was not good. Even with it being New Years I wanted to give some lead way but I still walked away disappointed. We will start with the service it took 10 minutes or so to get a waiter to the table. We were not offered a wine selection... More

I've been a fan for a long time. Love the bar. Sometimes eat there 4 times a month. The past 3 times have been marginal. I like to dine out and hate to see a good spot slipping. Slow service while staff gab together, mixed up wine varietals, poorly prepared and presented plates of food. I hope they start paying... More

This was a great surprise on a rainy day at noon: an interior that is textured with beautiful fabrics, colors, and muted lighting. This would be perfect a romantic dinner. Their lunch menu consists of imaginative salads, soups and populated with local seafood; if you go on a weekend there are also unique and mouthwatering combinations of burgers and sandwiches....
