Everything here was wonderful. Restaurant itself has classy look with nice decor. I had a perfectly fresh salad w bleu cheese and hazelnuts and my wife loved her salmon burger. Service was just right too. You should come and enjoy this place- nice town too

This was our best meal during our ten day stay in Oregon. The interior of the restaurant is beautifully styled and has nice ambience. The service was good. The most memorable thing we had there was a salad with mixed greens and beets, and a beet sorbet. It was delightful. We were too full to eat anything beyond sorbet for... More

Being a lifetime resident of Hood River, I've never taken a trip down to the Celilo Restaurant & Bar until recently. I went in with a lady friend during the lunch hour of around 12-1:30p during the middle of the week. We where greeted by a kind waitress and where taken care by Bruno the bartender/waiter. The special of the... More

This place reminds me a bit of a NYC restaurant. It has a sort of hip decor and style. There is a full bar and a little bit of a bar scene. The menu is not overly long but there is a bit of something for anyone. My wife and I both opted for fish even though we are 100... More

We stopped into have dinner last night and sat at the bar. We prefer to sit at the bar it's more fun. The bartender was the best! I can't remember her name but she said she was originally from Chicago. Anyway, she was wonderful, helpful, friendly, easy to talk to and enjoyable. We happened to go at the perfect time.... More

Dinner was really good. Fresh pasta with a unique sauce. Clams were a yummy starter. Husband's salmon fettuccine was rich and delicious.

The reviews did not lie...our dinner here was excellent, and the server was helpful and knew her stuff! The menu is fairly small and long on locally sourced, seasonal ingredients. It's easy to eat healthfully here, but perhaps is not the best place for junk food fans. Atmosphere is pleasant, but not particularly scenic.

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.
