Food was upscale gourmet & service was poor.

Enjoyed our experience for the most part. Atmosphere superb, food was good, service VERY slow. Took 2 hours for our 2 person meal. We would stop again only if time permitted.

Although the service was excellent, I sent my drink back twice, yet still awful, didn't drink. How can you mess up a margarita? My husband ordered a $26 steak, arrived over cooked. I ordered a pork chop, it arrived tasty, but very tough. We will not return.

We have eaten at this restaurant several times, and always enjoy it. The restaurant is beautiful and the staff well trained. It has a good cocktail and wine menu too. The food is usually very good, although we have had a miss every now and then. Recently a group of four ate there. Two of us had the salmon, over... More

We found this restaurant to have excellent service and very good food. We were tired from being on the road all day so it was nice to be able to relax and enjoy a good meal without any hassles.

For a small town, Hood River Oregon is blessed with many good restaurants. One, however - Celilo Restaurant, rises above the rest in cooking, service, atmosphere and overall experience. It is the culinary creations of Head Chef Ben Stenn, trained in France and New York City, that lead the list of why this place is great. The emphasis is on... 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
