    Both of our dishes were some of the best we’ve ever had. The clam and pasta dish that I had was perfect. Clams were great. Green beans were slightly crunchy and had both the green bean flavor and the scent of fresh snapped beans. Pasta was perfectly cooked, corn and broth had a mix of delicate flavors. Wonderful. We’ve met the waiter before and he was great as usual.

    There are a number of places for fine dining in Hood River, but Celilo is at the top of the list. The room is spacious and comfortable --- we noticed that the restaurant is lively sounding, but not loud -- and the wait staff and bartenders are skilled, knowledgeable and attentive. On our visit, we enjoyed the special, curried mussels, and a riff on chicken and mole that was out of this world. The entrees were preceded by a well-prepared selection of Middle Eastern spreads, and we ended with a seasonal dessert that featured the local fruit at peak ripeness. Our visit was for a special occasion, but I imagine that every dining experience at Celilo becomes a special occasion!

    I had the Tuna Nicoise. Tuna didn't taste fresh and basically arrived on a bed of greens with a few potatoes and olives. Not something I'd return for. Staff was super friendly and helpful.

    This was the first time we have been back to Celilo since before the pandemic started. We had dined there many times before and felt like it was losing some of its edge, but our experience last evening was great! The service could be a little prompter at the very start (drink orders!), but food was very good and we were well taken care of from there on out. We like that there are several vegetarian and/or pescatarian options, and love the use of local ingredients.

    Amazing experience as always! We always try to have dinner here after a round of golf at Indian Creek, but the food and service is so amazing, it’s worth the drive from Portland. The seasonal salads are always creative and worth attempting to recreate at home and the entrée selection changes frequently. This restaurant is one of my favorites and I hope Sunday dinner service comes back soon:)

    We celebrated our Anniversary here. The service was outstanding! I lost count how many times my water glass was refilled as well as asked if they could get us anything. Very friendly, courteous. Food was great! Smoked Salmon Fettucine and my husband had their special! Both dishes we enjoyed. We definitely would recommend and we will be returning!!.

    seafood dish was excellent. leg lamb/sausage meat was excellent, however, greens were like eating sticks of tough grass and chickpeas burnt too much. too little dressing on green salad.

    Celilo Restaurant & BarResponded on June 17, 2022Thanks for joining us and we're glad you enjoyed your main entrees! Dressing can be subjective, but we're always happy to provide more dressing when asked – thank you for the feedback.
