We visit Celilo's whenever we're craving well prepared food in a lovely setting. Their wait staff are exceptionally well versed in the entrees du jour and the food reflects the care and enthusiasm of their more than competent chefs. Fall/winter's bluster is easily offset when one spends an evening imbibing in the ambiance of this terrific establishment. Their salads are... More

We stopped by here for some appetizers before heading north to our B&B. We had the skillet roasted mussels and arugula salad. Wow, so good! Like most places in Oregon, they had some tasty brews on tap too.

This was a fun restaurant for a good lunch. We sampled beers and then took the tour which was very interesting. And love our glasses.

Friendliest and most welcoming place I visited so far in Hood River. Recommended by the Hood River Hotel staff, and the recommendation was on target. I sat at the bar, discovered it was Happy Hour, and ordered the suggested pre-dinner snacks. The bartender served me and was friendly, professional and welcoming. Everyone I met in the resturant was had the... More

It has a wonderful ambience and the food is delicious. It's on the higher end price wise but the food never disappoints. They have a great happy hour although the seating is limited so get there early. Not a place to bring children. They do have additional seating outside the front door

For Hood River this is an excellent place to eat. It is a bit more upscale than most of the restaurants in town. I had the hanger steak and it was delicious and tender. The table had the skillet roasted clams that were wonderful. I had the mixed green salad, which was very fresh and tasty. The portion size was... More

Celilo is a very tasteful place with a menu that promises better than it delivers. I first reviewed this restaurant eight years ago. We have eaten there several more times over the years, and I regret to report that we did not have a good experience when we had dinner there on July 15, 2015. Our server, Christine, led me... More

Clean modern space in older building in downtown Hood River. The food was extremely well executed and demonstrated restraint from a chef that could have chosen to show off. The service was excellent; professional and friendly without being cloying or overly familiar. The menu offered good choices and the specials were both interesting and not over-priced. All in all, a... More
