My wife convinced me that we have walked by Romul's too many times for a pub of my choosing. This time she won out. Glad she did as we both enjoyed a dinner. The atmosphere, friendly staff and food all make this a 5 star restaurant.

The owner was actually tending bar which is where we sat as we wanted a light or shared meal. He was accommodating and shared the history of his restaurant and the former location in The Dalles.

This place reminds me of a classy place we would visit in downtown Portland, Oregon. We will be coming back on our next trip to Hood River.

When you are done with dinner, recommend getting an ice cream cone a block to the west and across the street. You cannot miss the line of people during the summer.

My husband and I went to Romul's for a Valentine's Day meal. It was our first visit since they relocated from The Dalles. Oh, my goodness was it wonderful! Definitely a change for the better! We asked for an appetizer that wasn't even an option on the menu and we were told, "It's not a question of 'if', just a matter of how we can get it done". Now that is service -- delivered with a smile. The food was fabulous, everything cooked to perfection, and presented beautifully. We had different chicken dishes, each with risotto, and the risotto wasn't exactly the same -- each was complimentary to the dish and utterly scrumptious. The desserts were the least impressive, but still very good, and the presentation was gorgeous. The service was pleasant, knowledgeable, and attentive. This was one of the best meals we've ever had at a restaurant. We will definitely visit again.

Stopped in on a Thursday night. Front patio was full, but inside was completely empty. The server was very friendly and attentive. Unfortunately, the food was no big deal. We had shrimp cannelloni and lobster ravioli. The two meals tasted identical. Both very salty. Not really what we hoped for considering the price.

We went to Romul's on Fathers day for our 30th anniversary dinner while in Hood River. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The food was very good and the wine suggestion was spot on. Was surprised it wasn't busier. Would go back..
