Excellent house-made pasta with bolognese sauce was excellent as was the beet salad and plum tart for dessert. Wait staff was friendly and conversational with sense of humor.

It was very busy the night we ate at Celilo, but the service was excellent. Our food was very flavorful and beautiful plated. I can't recommend this restaurant enough.

I read so many good reviews so I was excited to try this place. Decided to have a drink at the bar first to look over menu. We were greeted by a surly bartender who put down drink menus and disappeared. When she finally returned my husband ordered a Johnny Walker scotch to which she replied " oh we don't carry that but here's our list. All super expensive. What bar doesn't carry Johnny Walker? Evidently one who thinks they are really something. Needless to say we skipped the drink and moved on. Earlier in the evening we stopped at Romuls for a drink. We didn't feel like pasta but if I did I would highly recommend them over Celilo. Too stuffy and overpriced for me. Not to mention expensive.

We've returned because we've had great experiences before.
Tonight's mussel appetizer, amazing salmon and paella were beyond.
And then? Huckleberry cake and ice cream.
Wow.
Try the Wy'East pinot gris.

Celilo was recommended by friends who live in the Columbia River Gorge area, and we had an enjoyable meal there. The service was attentive and our server explained the menu to us and recommended some of their more popular items. I had the fettucini with smoked trout, which sounded unusual and was highly recommended, and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was a generous portion and a preparation that brought out the smoked trout flavor. There were four in our party and each dish was flavorful and well prepared with high quality ingredients. The ambience is casual but the service first class. We were there on a weekend night and were glad we had made reservations in advance, as it was quite busy.
