What a surprise find!

I've been coming to this area for business for years and never heard of this restaurant...so happy I've found it. I eat many meals on the road and really enjoy a "local" place instead of a regional or national chain. Beautiful interior design with a great view of the Columbia. Attentive wait... read more

A landmark restaurant for this area. Each time we go, the great service is consistent and the food is good. The pepper steaks are yummy.

We went for our wedding anniversary, and the New York steak was so salty it was inedible. The calamari was rubber and tough, drenched in the worst overpowering lemon sauce ever created. We expected so much more from this place, and I'm amazed that Cedars gets such good reviews. I guess people's expectations are really low, or they just don't... More

The food was very good and the wait staff was quite personable. It was apparently Prom night at the local high school because we saw many high school kids decked out in their finery and sparkles - which was quite fun.

Everything here is amazing! The appetizers are huge, good wine selection and dinner was super delicious. The place has a nice view, and the lighting is very romantic. Ask for a booth when the restaurant is busy to have a little more privacy. I was very happy with the service our waitress was very professional and friendly.

My favorite place for a special occasion. I can't rave enough about the seafood pasta. It's the best I've ever had. Very nice location on Cover Island. Lovely views of the water & sunsets. Excellent service and wonderful food. A can't miss choice.

Cedars is a great alternative to larger, more open restaurants in that it's a bit more intimate. The location on the river offers nice, relaxing views. Go early for happy hour (4-6) and take a spot in the loung by the fireplace. But be sure to have reservations if you want to move up to the main restaurant later. The... More

Located on the banks of the Columbia River, Cedars offers a beautiful atmosphere for fine dining. Their full service bar is a perfect area to enjoy a perfectly prepared Pepper Steak (my favorite) while taking in the warmth of the fireplace. The main dining area has plenty of window tables with an exquisite view. For special occasions, business meetings or... More

The choice in the menu was great. The service was about perfect: friendly, accurate, quick and helpful. The choice of wine was very good. The lobster was prepared as it should be. The taste was fresh, as lobster should be. It was a fabulous meal.

After a sad, slow decline since we first started going here 8 years ago, this place has really turned the quality back up! We had a great visit, from the perfect waiter to the fantastic prime rib. The Cedars is back as somewhere you'd want to take your out of town guests, even if the spectacular view wasn't part of... More
