We were really excited to try Celilo during our visit to Hood River. The wait staff was very accommodating, even when we arrived with two more people than we had on our reservation. Unfortunately, the food took a really long time to arrive. In fact, our appetizers didn't appear for about 30 minutes, and the entrees took another 30 minutes.... More

Out for a solo evening, I enjoyed a great glass of Pinot and a tasty plate of gnocchi. Friendly staff, although I ordered from, was served by, and attended to by at least 4 or 5 different people - the service seemed a little scattered. Prices are high, but this is one of the few non-brewery options in town with... More

Hard to make a choice since there were several that appealed My husband had the salmon & thought it was fine. There is usually too much food for me so I had the mussels and a salad instead of an entree. Bruno, our waiter, was helpful. I liked the salad that was mâché, roasted beets, crisp fried hicpeas and Harissa... More

San Francisco foodie here so this review may not be for everyone. Went on Friday night at 8pm with parents and grown brother. Service was fine. Food did not take excessively long as others have written. But the menu is odd - not a lot of choices - and on that night the salmon preparation was old-fashioned and bitter. Fresh... More

I will start with the restaurant is nice and the staff was friendly and attentive. We just made the mistake of ordering the salmon. It was so dry it was hard to put a fork through it. Half was covered with skin and the other half was over seasoned (very salty). I admit we did not say anything while we... More

This restaurant was recommended by our innkeeper. He told us that they offered 2 for 1 entrees and this Wednesday may be the last of the season. We checked, he was correct. The food was excellent. I indulged in their lamb special. A rack prepared differently and served with healthy veggies etc. My wife had Duck breast. We enjoyed wine... More

The building is very beautifully decorated and well put together. Its not the largest of areas but still roomy enough. The food is well prepared but expect to pay a tidy sum for it. Its not a place you could dine in too often but nice for the "special" occasion. The bar area is very nice and they do happy... More

We were in Hood River for 2 nights and this restaurant was recommended by friends who live here. We made a Wednesday night reservation through Open Table and totally (and unknowingly) lucked out, because Wednesday nights in February are 'two for one' - the price of the cheaper entree is credited. To start, the drinks are fabulous! I had a... More

We only had drinks but the food looked good. Sat at the bar and had a great time watching the bartender. It was fun and fascinating. Would like to try dinner one of these nights. Nice wine list.

My wife and I with three other couples shared a great experience at Celilo recently. We sat in the 'semi private' room for a celebration dinner and were treated to a uniformly excellent meal with really attentive, pleasant and helpful staff. The price was very reasonable too, considering the amount we ate and drank! The restaurant itself has a great... More
