had an oyster poor boy, three oysters served luke warm with a little shredded cabbage and carrot. The bun was hard stale and had factory grill marks, my wife had the prawn wrap, she unwrapped it to show the waiter a little piece of shrimp less than an inch long and 1/4 diameter. She asked if he would call that... More

Whole half chicken on a delightful bed of kale hash...service was top drawer and drinks perfect! Salmon was PERFECTLY cooked, not the least overdone. Would go back again without hesitation. House red mix was serviceable... Martinis were above average. Desserts h e a v e n l y! ! !

3 if we're in for dinner in s busy Saturday. The food was fantastic, great wine selection by the bottle (by the glass could use some work), and we had this dessert to die for. Our waitress was perfect and we left happy and satisfied - and then went for a little walk. We'll be back

Great food, wine and service. I love the wine bar but the restaurant is fabulous too. A must when visiting Hood River.

We were prepared for something really special and were awfully disappointed. I had an exotic sounding stuffed squid on black lentils; the squid stuffed with pumpkin was tasteless and rubbery and the lentils didn't relate at all. The stuff on top was like bad cole slaw. My husband's roast pork was fine but nothing to write home about. Altogether a... More

This restaurant has a great menu, wonderful ambiance, but our food seemed over thought. We ordered the special--octopus stuffed with pumpkin, with lentils, and brussel sprouts. All these foods are great, but when put together... The pumpkin was too sweet for the octopus, the brussel sproups were shredded beyond recognition, and the lentils were swimming in oil (olive oil put... More

Really liked this place. Felt a little out of place coming in with a hiking boots...but the staff was very nice. I actually ended up here twice - first ordered the salmon - which was fresh and delicious. Also ordered a gnocchi the next night - which was a bit too cheesy for my taste, but overall a good option.... More

I like this place. It's nice to have a fine dining establishment in Hood River. Went to this place on the way to Portland with my wife and son. I was a little nervous to take a 6-week old into a nice restaurant, but they were very accommodating and he slept in his car seat the whole time. The food... More

The decor and ambiance of Celilo enhanced the wonderful flavors of the food. They were very busy the night we were there, and there was a bachlorette party seated close to us, but neither of these disturbed the quiet and leisurelyness of our dinner. My husband and I had excellent meals and we shared a warm chocolate dessert. We would... More
