The nicest place in H.R.

We asked a lot of the locals what the best place in Hood River was to eat. Everyone of them said Celilo, hands down. We had the clams, which were delightful for an appetizer. We also had the lamb dish which was interesting but it all melted together to capture the different flavors of the dish... read more

Celilo is a wonderful dining experience from the moment you walk through the door. It is quietly elegant, yet informal. This was our second visit, with our first 2 years ago last time we visited Hood River. The first visit totally blew us away (guess we had low expectations) so we were sure to return on our next visit to... More

Treat yourself to something gourmet in Hood River. Although the website offers a rather overblown philosophy and mission for this restaurant, it's simply a great place to eat. And the service is top notch.

Many locals had recommended this place to us, so we decided to try it. We had lunch there & it was excellent. Great food & great service. The lunch menu was really reasonably priced.

We wanted just a light repast and Celilo's appetiizers, soup and salad fit the bill. My spinach and strawberry salad with goat cheese was among the best I have had. The clam skillet was more then ample. Would have like more broth. My ever lov'n had the asparagus soup that was delicious. The pork check app was good but not... More

Let me start with the interior. Wooden beams, exposed steel and long swaths of raw silk give a feeling of privacy between areas. Natural elements and artwork make this elegant restaurant feel cozy and intimate. Very Pacific NW. Large windows give the view of downtown Hood River, the atmosphere is lovely enough to linger through another coffee. Service friendly and... More

Charmed again, and again. We love this restaurant. The menu is Northwest fresh and largely organic with locally-sourced products. The cocktails are inspired, which is a great way to begin the evening. Pretty decent wine list. Good vibes here!

My husband and I enjoyed a very good meal here on Friday evening. The service was very good, they looked after our needs very well. The flat bread was really interesting and tasty. They had Boneyard IPA, hubby's favorite beer, so that's a bonus. I ordered Pork Tenderloin with purple polenta with roasted asparagus. I didn't care for the polenta... More

We chose this restaurant over others because the menu looked enticing. The food was not bad, but it did not live up to our expectations. The place has a great ambience and should be among the top restaurants in Hood River but, frankly, the food is merely average. I had a pasta, asparagus and mushroom dish that could have been...
