This restaurant is the best in Hood River. Chef Ben Stenn is passionate about his food and about supporting the local economy. He uses fresh, local, in-season and sustainable products. The restaurant is beautifully decorated and very romantic. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable. We always feel like we have arrived at a good friends home when we go there. You can wear a dress and heels or your ski pants and boots and feel at home. The cocktail and wine menu are superb, and my favorite drink "Sweet Cheeks" should not be passed up by those who enjoy something a little spicy. We truly enjoy the home made "Lavash" crackers and yummy desserts. This is the place we bring all of our out of town guests. Celilo Restaurant & Bar would fit in anywhere in LA or New York.

We were staying across the street at the Hood River Hotel (excellent) and decided to try this place as it advertises that it uses local produce and meat and the menu looked good.

The service was OK, the waitress spent a fair bit of time talking about herself rather than the menu etc. The wine list was pricey.

My wife went for cod and I had a hangar steak. Both were OK but certainly nothing outstanding. and both were quite expensive.

We may have ordered wrong but we were not overly impressed.

While the service was good the rest was a test in patience. What sounded good on the menu was average to poor with tiny portions. It took forever to get the food to the table. This was mid week with a third of the place empty. I'm accustom to paying for great food and happy to do so. This food was over priced for what they served. This was my third try at this place. Taking it off my list.

I have eaten at most restaurants in Hood River and think that this place has the best service in town. The food is good but except for their burger, I can't great. Beware of the high drink and wine prices.

We ate here as a result of TA reviews and the positive reviews were very much correct. Very well prepared food, good service, nice decor, good wine list. We truly enjoyed our lunch and would definitely love to return one day soon! Pictures of the food attached, hope you enjoy it, we certainly did.
