  • We couldn't have been happier with both Celilo Catering and Heather Sullivan as wedding planner for our daughter's wedding this past summer at Gorge Crest Vineyards in Underwood. The quality, presentation and kitchen/server staff associated with Celilo's food and bar service far surpassed our wildest expectations, and the family style serving approach was much better than folks standing in a buffet line. The food is prepared on site and is locally sourced, and Celilo and Heather were both extremely flexible in tailoring the food and drink offerings to exactly what we wanted. And Heather did a great job wedding planner - always calm, organized and flexible. As to other vendors, we couldn't have been more pleased with Gorge Crest as a venue, Viento Winery, Backwoods Brewery, DJ Ryan Kolberg of Gorge Music, and Blaine and Bethany Photography - all did a superb job. We had close to 150 guests at the wedding, and numerous guests commented that it was one of the most magical weddings th... Read more

  • We feel very lucky that we were able to work with Heather from Celilo to plan the dinner for our daughter's wedding. After meeting for a tasting, we knew that the farm to table food and their willingness to manage special dietary needs that they would be perfect for us. We enjoy high quality food and presentation and we were not disappointed. Their menu, drink and dessert selection, presentation and service were all top notch. The staff was thoughtful, professional and very happy to be working for Celilo. They served champagne or ice water to guests as they arrived, passed hors d'ourves and signature cocktails and even served children a special macaroni and cheese dinner!! Not only were we impressed but our guests continue to talk about the family style gourmet dinner they had at our wedding. Everyone agrees that it is the best wedding dinner they have ever had! Heather was organized and always had the time to call, meet or email when we had questions. We could not have hoped... Read more

  • You guys if you are in need of AMAZING service and outstanding food for your wedding or any event honestly... this is seriously the place. I searched for so many places and this one caught my eye right away. Heather Sullivan helped me with everything here and she alone was legit a gift from god... she went above and beyond and helped me out in any way that was needed. Her and the company came up with the cutest ways to serve our food during these crazy covid times. Every single person LOVED our food and kept saying this wasn’t typical wedding food. They even made our cake and wow... to this day I find myself craving it. Sooo moist sooo delicious and the way it was decorated and displayed was just priceless. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS COMPANY.

  • We were married earlier this month at Gorge Crest Vineyards and Heather Sullivan was our coordinator along with Celilo for our caterer. They make a perfect team & seamless wedding experience! Celilo provided fresh and delicious food that completely exceeded our expectations. The drink service and staff was amazing as well. Our guests were talking about the food for days after the wedding and gave compliments to the professional and polite staff. Since our wedding took place during the pandemic, Celilo made sure to take the necessary precautions in order for our guests to have a safe experience. Celilo hired an extra staffer to sanitize surfaces and the facilities throughout the night, which was something our guests definitely noticed and appreciated. They also came up with an alternative plan to serve our guests their meals and drinks in the safest manner. We truly appreciate how Heather Sullivan and the folks at Celilo went above and beyond to make our wedding day exceptional and one ... Read more

  • Catering goes beyond weddings. We had a large 100-year, two-day, corporate celebration in which Celilo catered. We wanted an event that epitomized who we are as a company. A huge part of this centered around our catering choice. Celilo is beyond exceptional on every level. From the finest detail to the perfection in food preparation, Celilo is hands-down the only option in catering excellence. You will not get rubber chicken - I promise! Local, thoughtfully produced fare is Celilo's forte. Duckwall Fruit could not have been more satisfied, period. We urge you to choose Celilo for all your catering needs. You will not be disappointed, except when you don’t book early enough.

  • Celilo was an incredible catering company for our wedding. Heather Sullivan was my wedding coordinator and catering guru so I felt 100% taken care of. Their food is incredible, they offer fantastic customer service and there is a fabulous pre-wedding tasting session that had a very personal touch. If you are looking for a restaurant with unforgettable food and easy communication than look no further!

  • Celilo catered our September wedding and the food was amazing. This wasn’t your standard chicken or beef wedding plate. Everything was prepared onsite at our venue and brought out in courses. The head chef of Celilo, Ben, was also present and preparing the food at our wedding. We had met him previously during a menu tasting and again at a family dinner at the Celilo restaurant, and we were so happy that he was able to be at the wedding as well. He is so friendly and personable and created the perfect meal for us. All of the staff was professional and handled all of the set up and clean up for us so we didn’t have to worry about anything. If you are getting married in Hood River, definitely have Celilo cater!

  • We recently got married and used Celilo for catering. The first time we met with Celilo, before we decided to use them for catering, we had a great experience! They gave us a great sampling of food from their restaurant menu and a few different drinks as well. Immediately my husband and I were won over. They have an extensive catering menu with so many different types of food to try. We picked several apps, a salad, two mains, and 3 sides. All of it was delicious! Their staff was so nice and they were all so easy to work with. They helped make our wedding a complete success! Anybody who needs catering, for any type of event, I would recommend Celilo and I know you wouldn't be disappointed!

  • Celilo did an amazing job catering our 110 person wedding this fall at The Orchard. Both the food and service exceeded our expectations. We received wonderful reviews from our guests for everything Celilo did - the salmon and beef were some of the best ever, the sides balanced & flavorful, and the appetizers spot on. (We are foodies and couldn’t think of one item that wasn’t exactly right.) You know it’s a win when everyone relives the meal the next day! Celilo's staff was outstanding as well. The bar service, wait staff, and servers were all attentive, professional, and personable. They went above & beyond to accomodate our requests throughout the evening and all with a smile... Prior to the event, we worked closely with Heather - who always responded promptly and was very patient with all our questions & custom menu requests. We will enjoy visiting the restaurant on our anniversary for years to come :) Well done Celilo - Thank you!! G&T

  • Heather at Celilo was GREAT to work with. Everyone is still raving about how delicious it was. Ben worked with us to create a special squash dish not on the menu and it was exactly how we imagined it would be. The bartenders did a great job and attended to my partner and I all night so we didn't have to worry about a thing. We're excited to keep eating at Celilo whenever we're in town.

  • The food was amazing--farm to table, seasonal and fresh! My guests continue to tell me how it was the best food they have had at a wedding. The price includes all the set up, tear down, and bartending, which is huge when you are planning all the logistics for your venue. Would highly recommend them for any catering event, and they made my wedding so special!

  • Celilo was wonderful - delicious food, great service and flexibility. We changed our mind midway through planning process and wanted a cocktail style reception. Celilo provided multiple stations and knocked it out of the park with the presentation and taste! Thanks for everything, we had the best day ever!

  • We chose Celilo for their farm-fresh, local ingredients. Beyond that though, Heather, Ben, and the team at Celilo delivered food and service beyond our wildest expectations! It's been a few months since our wedding, and our guests still talk to us about how amazing the food was. Both Heather and Ben were so accommodating to our needs. They even arranged for a special tasting for us when we were trying to determine which vegetarian entrée to provide. Truly an exceptional experience and a delicious meal served at our wedding. We highly recommend using Celilo for your wedding catering needs!

  • From day one we were impressed. Heather and her team were awesome, and the food was equally as amazing. Loved the farm to table selection that made our Hood River wedding even that much more special. All of our guests were impressed by the quality and selection of food they got. We had a bountiful selection of apps and opted for the family style dinner. They were very accommodating with our requests, and helped iron out the plan to execute it. Was also very happy with the selection at the bar. Loved the local beer and wine we got to choose from. You wont be disappointed!

  • We could not have asked for a much better experience with Celilo Catering. We planned our Friday wedding in about five months, and were so lucky that they were available on our date. From the beginning Heather, the catering coordinator, was responsive and helpful. She went above and beyond, giving us helpful tips beyond just the catering process. They were very accommodating with our budget and preferences, a vegan guest, and a special children’s plate at our wedding. We were able to have them do our good and bar service, which saved a lot of effort on our part. They were even able to add on a dessert package for us pretty last minute after our original wedding cake plan fell through. We received only compliments on the food and drink from our guests on our wedding night. The service was overall professional, except for one server that could have been dressed a little better - unfortunately enough so the receive a comment to me from a couple family members, but ultimately probably a ...
