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

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

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
