Our steak and lamb chops were cooked to perfection and our waiter was a delight! The salads were an added bonus to a great meal! Don't pass up an opportunity to eat at Riverside.

We went here as a result of reading Tripadvisor reviews that it was number 1 in Hood River and we were not disappointed! The food was, in a word "excellent" and choices for every palette. They have an extensive wine menu and feature a great selection of beers from the region. Everything was fresh and delicious. The ONLY negative comment... More

Very good food all around. We enjoyed the calamari, fresh salmon, the penne pasta with smoked salmon, and the creative and excellent kale Caesar. Who knew kale could be so tender and delicious?!? This restaurant's trademark is its river view, and it is indeed pretty nice, although there are better views had elsewhere, given that this is sort of tucked... More

Unfortunately, we had a bad experience on Monday evening in your dining room. Poor over all service. The waitstaff lacked training, specifically with the delivery of food, timeliness of drinks delivered, and accuracy of meals ordered with special request (lettuce wrapped burger), and inability to handle unfortunate situations. My friend had oyster sauce spilled on his sleeve, I had an... More

We were seated at 7:30 without a reservation on a Tuesday night and so were given a table right by the window where we could watch a nest of goose on a little island. My husband had the salmon special, nicely prepared over chopped vegetables. I had the cioppino in a flavorful broth with loads of mussels, clams, fish, and... More

We had dinner this evening at the Riverside. The view is spectacular. We ordered the special appetizer-fresh Columbia River salmon cakes. My husband ordered the beet salad. WELL, the appetizer was 2 large salmon cakes which were delicious. The complimentary focaccia bread was served along side olive oil/balsamic and green olives!

This restaurant-hotel complex has been here for years, but has kept fresh and current. The Riverside Restaurant was a refreshing surprise of a diverse menu of local, freshly prepared foods. Great lamb chops, beet salad and ciopino. The restaurant view has a sweeping vista of the Columbia River and White Salmon.

We ate here while staying at the hotel. The service was outstanding every time. We had breakfast twice, lunch and dinner once. Very tasty food, a bit pricey but well worth it. My husbands steak was a bit over cooked but they remedied it quickly. The view of the river was very nice while dining.
