    Enjoyed a remarkable meal for my husband’s birthday celebration. Cannot recommend the squash soup enough, it was absolutely fabulous. A wonderful wine selection and innovative cocktails. Celilo is easily one of our favorite places for special occasions and date nights.

    Our server, Liz, was outstanding. She was friendly, efficient, and professional in her demeanor. The ravioli was average, but the pork loin was not good. Maybe it was an off night?

    Celilo Restaurant & BarResponded on January 16, 2023We agree, Liz is an exceptional server! Obviously our goal is to match great service with great food, and we're sorry to hear we fell short on your meal. We hope you join us again so we can improve on your experience. Thank you.

    Celilo has been a go-to restaurant in Hood River for years. However, after not having been there for 3 years, we were extremely disappointed when we returned. The food was fine, (not not inventive nor particularly thoughtfully prepared), and overpriced for what it was. A dinner for 4 of us cost $250, and none of us were very impressed with our dinner. It would be a great stop for a cocktail and appetizer.

    We love Celilo and make a reservation whenever we are in Hood River. We had dinner in the bar on a Tuesday evening. Everything was delicious, service is always impeccable, and the bar small plates are a great value for the quality of the food. Nice wine list too. I highly recommend.

    The Celilo we know and love is baaaaack! Summer is over so most folks from away have returned there. Now you can get a table and have a civilized dinner or three before the holidays. You will see all those people you have not realized you have been missing. Celilo is wonderful, tasty, and makes for a very good time.

    Celilo Restaurant & BarResponded on January 16, 2023It's great to be baaaack!! Thanks so much for the uplifting review!

    This is our special place to dine and we've never been disappointed.When they see our name on the reservations list we always get a window table in a special place. Staff alwsys remember us and call us by name. Most of the staff has been there for years. They even held on through the pandemic. It shows how well they are treated by the ownership (it is locally owned and operated by local people). Service is great amd staff well informed. The food is wonderful and creative and house made. The fresh pasta is perfect. Their wine list is well thought out and includes many wines from the Gorge. They have wines at all price points so everyone can enjoy it.

    I made reservations a few weeks beforehand and was glad! Very popular restaurant with long wait times without a reservation. We tried the cheese appetizer which was good, and we had the pork and the steak. Both were excellent dishes. We also ordered dessert which was delish. Highly recommend! Worth the price.

    Food had amazing flavors, very very good coming from a foodie, the only thing that was a bit off was the pasta was a bit over done, although I think many people prefer pasta to be soft, my preference is al dente or just past al dente but no further. People were great and fun. It was a delightful evening

    Excellent experience yet again. Food was fantastic. My pasta was 10/10 but somehow her pork dish dwarfed it? And the help choosing the perfect vino was wonderful as well. Always a terrific experience from the food to the wait staff, host staff, everything.

    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!
