    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.

    The service and ambiance was great, but the entrees really disappointed. The Seafood Pasta was especially lacking in flavor. Apps, desserts, and wine were great. Highly recommend the asparagus soup!

    Celilo Restaurant & BarResponded on June 15, 2022The asparagus has been particularly special this year! Glad you enjoyed your overall experience, service and ambiance... but sorry to hear we fell short on the entrees. We hope you try us again.

    Celilo is our favorite restaurant for special celebrations: a birthday, an anniversary, a weekday, a weekend, honestly any day. Tonight, we were celebrating our 37th wedding anniversary. Our evening began with Jacqueline greeting us at the door and escorting us to our lovely table where we were then in the expert care of Lindsay N. The Celilo Team worked seamlessly together to guide us through the evening by anticipating our needs while allowing us to savor the milestone celebration. The Celilo Bar shakes the best martinis and cocktails in town, and proudly presents an extensive selection of beer and wine to quinch any thirst. We have been consistently impressed by the Celilo Kitchen for over 14 years and this evening they exceeded our high expectations. My seafood chowder special was amazing and my husband's asparagus soup was delicious. My mushroom ravioli was incredible and my husband's pork steak was exceptional. The tiramisu was extraordinary. Thank you Celilo for making our anniversary celebration "over the top" special.

    My wife's dinner (special pasta with morel mushrooms) was outstanding--it was her birthday! I had the NY strip steak and I have had better at this restaurant. The desserts were outstanding (tiramisu & fruit tart with vanilla ice cream)! The service was excellent! My wife enjoyed the wine (a rose & a chardonnay), I had an IPA which was just average (Everybody's Country Boy).

    We always dine at Celilo when in the area. On this visit, we had perfectly crafted rye manhattans, a tasty kale salad, delicious oven roasted clams, and a beautiful seafood risotto. We opted for a lovely local Sauvignon blanc with dinner, and finished with a light and lovely tiramisu. Service was very good, and everyone made us feel welcome. Already looking forward to our next meal there!!!

    Food was tasty, but not great. Appetizer of clams was lacking in taste. Broth tasted like chicken stock. Bread was an extra charge ($2.50) and was not enough to share. Main course was just ok. I had the mushroom ravioli which was in a broth and was tasty, but also not special. Service was good.

    Celilo Restaurant is a real treat. We are lucky to have restaurant of this caliber in the Columbia Gorge. Top notch, delicious food; lovely staff, beautiful ambience where you can talk. We went for a belated birthday dinner and everything was perfect - including the restaurant remembering my note and sending a heavenly dessert with a candle. I would recommend Celilo to anyone looking for a special culinary experience.
