Great Food, Service and Atmosphere

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... read 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

We were on an Eco Tour and were told that, " if we want a salmon burger to die for, do not miss this place!" We were not steered wrong. The burger was perfect....and made from wild salmon...not the farm raised kind! You can't miss with this restaurant.

First visit to this lovely restaurant, the staff was warm and inviting I would give the 5 stars. Not as impressed with the food, I did ask for my steak rare not raw it was blue and no seasoning.

Lovely little restaurant with eager and professional staff. We were a little disappointed in our food; I think it is important to choose wisely here. Lots of wine choices, so no disappointment there. The pork belly salad was delicious and inventive , but the tomato soup was disappointing, as was the salmon entree. All the food was good, but not... More

We asked a lot of the locals what the best place in Hood River was to eat. Everyone of them said Celilo, hands down. We had the clams, which were delightful for an appetizer. We also had the lamb dish which was interesting but it all melted together to capture the different flavors of the dish. I would give them... More

Celilo is a wonderful dining experience from the moment you walk through the door. It is quietly elegant, yet informal. This was our second visit, with our first 2 years ago last time we visited Hood River. The first visit totally blew us away (guess we had low expectations) so we were sure to return on our next visit to... More

Treat yourself to something gourmet in Hood River. Although the website offers a rather overblown philosophy and mission for this restaurant, it's simply a great place to eat. And the service is top notch.

Many locals had recommended this place to us, so we decided to try it. We had lunch there & it was excellent. Great food & great service. The lunch menu was really reasonably priced.
