Our entire experience was wonderful! Loved the atmosphere, staff and food.
The food, the wine, the ambiance... Only surpassed by the wonderful, warm and personable service. Thank you for a memorable evening.
The food at this restaurant is magnificent. This is the place to go in Hood River.
While the food and service was good, they love to have additional food items on the plate not listed. For me, I have an allergy to Collard Greens. Most of the dishes had those in them. So I specifically went for a dish that didn't have it listed. Well surprise, there were sauteed greens on my dish that weren't even on the menu. And it took a while for them to figure out if it was collards or just Kale. My husband finished about half his meal before they came back with an answer. Also the wine list is massive, but if you plan on getting a bottle, watch out for the corkage fee. I would think a typical corkage fee maybe 5$. Nope, plan to take on another 25$ into your bottle. That's just outrageous.
Very nice spot!! Not a noisy raucous frat party by any means
Civilized with terrific service second time there will try to work it in the theft time we’re
in Hood River
Our first time here and we enjoyed the Setvice which was very very good. The food (I had the veggie pasta and SO had the steak) was quite good. We had the mussels for an app and they were second to none) was good. The pasta had perhaps too much basil in it but it was done well.
We would go back.
A jewel of a place ! Great food and great staff!
Visited Hood River for our wedding anniversary. A friend recommended Celilo for dinner and it was wonderful. The food and wine selection was superb. We will be back again when we head to Hood River for a visit.
We are sad that winter is upon us and from now on we would have to drive in the dark to get home so will have to wait until Spring to visit Celilo again as it is by far our favorite restaurant in The Gorge.
The food is wonderful as is the presentation and waitstaff, hard to ask for more. The bar offered a lovely array of original cocktails.
Menu is very limited. But what they serve, they serve well
Always stellar! ❤️❤️❤️
Celilo is a local treasure. The best restaurant in Hood River. Probably be good to keep it a secret from the summer mobs.
Food was good except for my husbands steak being over cooked. We were going to replace it but it took to long for our server to come around and by then I was almost done eating. He just ended up eating it but I felt bad.
Ribs so dry they were inedible. Sent them back. Paella had small bits of meat and not a lot of flavor. Beet salad and gazpacho lacked flavor as well
Excellent service. My wife ordered salmon and it was excellent. I ordered BBQ pork ribs. The bbq sauce was applied so heavily and was so strongly flavored, it was all you could taste. I would suggest ordering the ribs with sauce on the side. The green salad and Caesar salads were very good. Nice selection of beer and wine.
My wife and I both had the King Chinook Salmon. Perfectly done and nicely presented.
Sensational Celilo, as always!!!! Celilo is the go-to place for any occasion. All organic, all welcoming, all professional, all delicious. THANK YOU!!!!!!
We have been to Celilo for lunch and/or drinks, but this was our first dinner there. From walking through the door to be seated to departing after dinner, the experience was wonderful. The hostess, the wait staff and the chef (Jacqueline) were attentive, congenial and made us feel relaxed. Our meals were both very good, huckleberry cake sublime and the Brick House Gamay Noir, perfect. This was one of the nicest and memorable anniversary dinners we've had. Thank you so much for helping us celebrate our 38 years!
The food was good but the service was very poor. We had lunch on a slow Saturday. The server was not at all attentive. Pretty disappointing.
Excellent as always. Celilo is our default weekend date-night eatery during the summer months. Unfortunately during the Winter we cant eat there and get home without driving in the dark and the eyes aint what they used to be.
Great meal to celebrate my Dad’s birthday. A bit too noisy for him to really enjoy.
We enjoyed Celilo so much for dinner with visiting friends that we all chose to make the hour drive again three days later. Nothing else like it in the Gorge. Excellent food, wine and service. The chef was even willing to share a recipe with us. Very unusual and generous. Thank you. We'll definitely return. Next visitors arriving soon!
Delicious, seasonal-inspired food. We loved their vegetables and the fish was creatively prepared. Decent wine menu, some fun options from the local Columbia region.
It’s always sensational to visit Celilo. It is an all-inclusive neighborhood gem. Chef Ben is incredibly creative in the kitchen. All the servers are professional and accommodating, welcoming and compassionate. Please visit Celilo—-you’re guaranteed to return often!!!
Outstanding as usual. We brought visiting relatives so they could share West Coast/ local cooking at its best.
Our experience was excellent. Prompt seating with a reservation, full restaurant. Excellent menu, quality wine list. Good service, very attentive.
Friends came to town, so we brought them to Celilo, our favorite restaurant in Hood River. It did not disappoint. Our friends are residents of a large city with a growing reputation as a dining mecca, so they know quality when they taste it. They raved about Celilo's food and commented on the ease of conducting a conversation without needing to raise their voices, much less shout over ambient noise. Can't recommend this place highly enough!
We had a lovely anniversary meal, and because I’d put a note in Open Table about our occasion, our server brought us champagne with our dessert. All the food was excellent, from the chilled corn soup, to the mushroom fettuccini, to the New York steak. And the sorbet was amazing. Outstanding service and we will go back again and again.
My wife and I came here for our 41st anniversary and she said it was the best New York steak that she ever had. My cast iron paella was superb and gave me some great ideas to plagiarize when we get back home. What a great dinner
As always a great dining experience. I enjoy the fact that the menu changes with the seasons and available local ingredients.
was not working. Very pleasant outside. Food was great as was the wait staff
We all enjoyed the mushroom pasta... was wonderful to be in a place where we. Old talk to each other and hear without yelling. Want to come back for more wonderful eating.
Excellent higher end dining experience. Excellent PNW cuisine, great atmosphere. Service was just right and the ambient noise level was just right.
We had a great dinner to celebrate my wife’s birthday. Food was wonderful (mussels, trout and salmon). Wine was also great. Service easy very attentive and friendly.
Everything was excellent, except the charcuterie appetizer, which was sparse for the money.
The food was good and locally sourced. The wait staff was attentive and friendly.
Fabulous fresh food. The salad was amazing. The salmon main course was spectacular.
The seafood was excellent and the service very attentive.
Dining at Celilo was fantastic from start to finish. Entering Celilo my eyes were drawn to gorgeous artwork and as I was led to my table, I witnessed more lovely art I believe created by the same artist. I really enjoyed this dining experience as the food was beautifully designed and plated but also it was great tasting, and fresh. All was stellar --first course, entrees, and desserts. Oh and primo coffee too.
I savored the Semolina crusted fried Idaho trout fillet, black beluga lentils, mirepoix vegetables, and sautéed French beans with dill yogurt cream and NOBO Farm micro greens. Desserts were shared and very good.
