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

I like this place. It's nice to have a fine dining establishment in Hood River. Went to this place on the way to Portland with my wife and son. I was a little nervous to take a 6-week old into a nice restaurant, but they were very accommodating and he slept in his car seat the whole time. The food... More

The decor and ambiance of Celilo enhanced the wonderful flavors of the food. They were very busy the night we were there, and there was a bachlorette party seated close to us, but neither of these disturbed the quiet and leisurelyness of our dinner. My husband and I had excellent meals and we shared a warm chocolate dessert. We would... More

We had heard that the lineup at Celilo's was usually around the block so we felt lucky to score a table. In a relatively quiet town, the restaurant was packed. I ordered the pasta while my partner had the short ribs. We both loved our meals. I have a troubling time at restaurants such as these since I'm a vegetarian..... More

There are no dishes out of the ordinary in the menu at Cellilo, but the freshness of all the food we ate was noticeable! My husband said he hadn't had a burger that good in many, many years, he found an excellent flavor to the meat and the preparation and presentation were very good too. The service was a bit... More

We have never had a bad meal at Celilo. Love their seasonal changes. They never rush you and it is not noisy like so many places.

We stopped here for dinner after our day in the Gorge. The food and service were both very good in a very charming atmosphere. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

This was represented as an upscale restaurant specializing in preparing fresh local fare. I arrived for lunch, selected a wrap that sounded mouthwatering with prawns, in a warm garlic and herb tortilla with a warm yummy sauce. The service was slow even tho only a few tables were occupied. When I got the wrap, nothing was warm and there were... More
