Quality fare and excellent presentation. The chef did not learn food preparation from watching tv shows.

The wait staff was excellent! The food was so good! Try the hazelnut tilapia. A perfect meal. The crab cakes and sauce were some of the best we have had. Then they treated us to a cake dessert for our anniversary and it was yummy! The dining room reminded me of my summer eating in England, Scotland, and Wales.

I made a reservation over a month ago for Thanksgiving, called to confirm today and was told we don't have one and that I'm SOL. I was also accused of making this all up and there was nothing to be done about it. I know this is a key reservation meal, but the bs. lines I was fed and the... More

Often go to the Columbia Gorge Hotel for celebrations. Service is great, food is always good and the atmosphere and view are spectacular.

I live in Hood RIver and have eaten at the Columbia Gorge Hotel restaurant many times. I've never had a bad meal there--always excellent! And the service is very friendly. I don't understand how people can give the food or service a poor review. I highly recommend it.

After seeing mixed reviews we decided to try this restaurant since we were staying at the CGH. We were seated promptly and served fresh bread. The salad was fresh with a nice presentation. Odered the rib eye which came out just as ordered, with nice fresh vegetables and mashed potatoes. What a treat. Our server, Cory, was very attentive and... More

We wanted to walk around the grounds since it's so very picturesque. We were actually able to purchase a glass of wine and walk around with it. We ended up sitting outside on the patio in the sun, looking at the Columbia River through the trees. It was so beautiful. Wine was good. We both had a glass and it... More

We really liked the idea of this place and we decided to give it a try for breakfast. It was located right next to our hotel, Columbia Cliffs Villas. We love historic buildings and are history buffs so we were hoping for a great experience. The grounds are beautiful. Service was very attentive, no issues there. We were sat by... More

I had their halibut and it was probably some of the best prepared ever. It came with mashed potatoes, baby carrots and asparagus, all cooked to perfection. The view of the Columbia River Gorge and Columbia River is enough, but the food matches the view. The bar is next to the restaurant (Valentino's - after Rudolph who stayed here) and... More
