We really enjoyed this restaurant. The server was knowledgable and friendly. My wife had their special house salad as an appetizer, and I had their corn soup. Both were excellent. We split an entree, the hanger steak. It was good but not as good as the appetizers, and thus the 4 stars instead of 5. Wine selection was great. Would... More

We were here over spring and look forward to trying it this summer season. They use mainly local sourced food to prepare elegant, delicious dishes. The atmosphere is lovely.

Of 6 of us, only one was enthused about their meal. Service was poor. After receiving our meals, no one came back to check on the meal. My dinner was terrible, I didn't eat it.

Had high hopes based on reviews. Seemed liked a relaxing place to enjoy lunch. We ordered and after 30 minutes in an almost empty restaurant, my husband's food came out. Then after another 5 minutes the bartender came over and said they gave someone else my order but they would bring me soup and salad while waiting. I was fine... More

After several good lunches we were able to go to Celilo for dinner last night and loved it just as much as the lunches we have had. The night scene is busy and fun and everything we ate was delicious. We will keep returning for more!

Excellent food and wonderful service. Great ambience and a superb menu. I had the hazelnut/blueberry salad with fried oysters and my husband ordered a prawn wrap which was also wonderful. Our friends were also impressed having the same salad and tomato basil soup. Would certainly go back for dinner.

A popular location in Hood River - it received notice in the AAA article that a friend sent to us. We had to reserve at 8 p.m., but there was plenty of space when we arrived early. Good local food. Accommodating to GF.
