Interestingly, during a chance visit to Hood River last week, the waitress in one restaurant clued us in to try Celilo - and when we did, we were very impressed! The restaurant is simply and tastefully appointed, the service was quite friendly, helpful and accommodating, and the food was simply outstanding. I had a banh mi with succulent slivers of... More

Very nice looking place. I made reservations two weeks before, but it wasn't there when showed up. Not a bother they weren't too busy that night. I got the gnocchi and mushrooms. Mostly gnocchi not so much mushrooms in a very gooey sauce. Hubby got the hanger steak. He liked it. He also got the "prawns" which were medium sized... More

Three of us had a great lunch, with good food and outstanding service. We each had a different entree and were all pleased with our selections. The wine list is unique and we shared and enjoyed a bottle of a Sangiovese blend that was excellent. We will be back for dinner!

This restaurant has potential but we we were disappointed. We didn't have a reservation and arrived about 8PM on a weeknight. Although there were several open tables we were told to come back in 25 minutes. When we finally got seated we waited longer than usual to get waited on. Obviously staffing was a problem that night. The menu is... More

Celilo is a beautiful restaurant in downtown Hood River. The doors swing open to connect the outside with the inside. The lights are dim. The decor is classy... and the staff is cordial. Beyond that, the food is only O.K. I've never ordered anything there that I would come back and order again. Maybe it's because, in Hood River, it... More

We took a day trip up the Gorge and stopped in Hood River to stretch our legs. While walking around town, enjoying the sun and the small shops along the street , we asked a local where to dine for lunch. She recommended this place, which we quite enjoyed. I had a wonderfully prepared turkey sandwich and my companion had... More

This classy restaurant caters to the upscale tourists who are attracted to Hood River and the Gorge. It was actually a blessing to be traveling alone so I could savor the bouquet of flavors in each bite, rather than yapping away with friends and "missing" the meal. Beautifully arranged scallops, tenderly grilled to perfection. The fragrance of the apple-cardamom tart... More
