I heard that Celilo is the place for steaks.

Only one steak on the menu but it is the perfect steak. The Hanger Steak. Cooked to perfection and sliced for easy eating. The steak was served on a red wine sauce with kale (which I am not fond of, but this was good) on the side and some potatoes, cabbage and shallots. Other items on the menu... read more

Stopped for lunch on the way to Portland. Turkey Club (Pretty hard to screw up), but yet they succeeded. The bread was soaked with oil, fast grilled, sandwich was made (stale aioli) and delivered. The bread was neither toasted or grilled and dripped grease. We removed the bread (not good bread anyway) and ate the processed turkey and burnt bacon.... More

We waited a lovely spot in downtown Hood River for a date night with seafood and we got it at Celilo. Our server was very nice and knowledgeable. I recommend the kale salad - so good. They also serve a good portion for the mussel appetizer and it's very tasty.

We visited Hood River and were attracted to the restaurant by its lovely street appeal and were not disappointed with our meal! The wait staff was pleasant and helpful. The menu was interesting and the food fresh and well prepared and presented. The wine list was substantial. Will visit again when in Hood River.

Our family ate here on a weekday night and it was crowded - but we were given a private room toward the back. Lovely!! The menus was limited but excellent. The mussels were huge and tasty. Soups and salad very good. And the chicken was moist and yummy. Wines, beer and other drinks were very good as well. Prices reasonable.

Went to Celilo from our hotel just across the street. We both chose the hangar steak, which we thought was one of the tastiest things we've had in a long time. The cabbage and kale were absolutely delicious. We each had a cocktail and dessert. If we lived closer, we'd be regulars. The staff was attentive without being overbearing and... More

We recently visited Hood River with friends and enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Celilo. Each of us had a different salad and entree - all four meals were excellent. Service was wonderful and the wine list was a great mix of local wines.

Walked to Celilo Restaurant and Bar from our downtown hotel. The chef created some interesting dishes. I had a lamb ragout, and it was well-spiced and tasty. Portions were big; prices similar, but well worth it. Recommended for adults.

We returned to this restaurant in downtown to see if it was a good as before, after a long day of sightseeing and wine tasting in the Gorge. Our expectations were rewarded. The service was expert and the food was great.
