We dined here for both dinner and breakfast while staying at the Best Western. We expected a seafood type restaurant due to the decor and location but were surprised to find an American in Italian restaurant. Riverside dinner menu is very pasta heavy, we tried the Alfredo. It was descent but very over dressed to the point of almost goopy.... More

Wife and I went here based on the reviews. This was a hard place to rate, since the food was excellent, yet the service was abysmal. Had the lamb chop, wife had the clams appetizer and the chicken piccata entree. All were great, but the server never followed through, never made eye contact as he passed by, was absent for... More

Very good place for a birthday dinner with friends. Enjoyed the view, relaxing, never felt rushed. Good menu selections. Waiter was attentive. There is optional outdoor seating. Will definitely visit again.

Location was right on the river with a wonderful view. In session, there is also outdoor seating. I would strongly suggest reservations. The service was excellent. I can't say enough about the wait staff, especially Sierra. A nice variety of menu and wine selection. A bonus was plenty of GF options, including pasta and bread.

We've had breakfast, lunch and dinner at the Riverside. Outdoor seating on the deck is really pleasant. The staff are well-trained and care. The food is excellent and a great value to boot!!!

A group of 4 friends traveling around Oregon. Our first night we stayed at the Best Western Plus Hood River. We had travelled from Pittsburgh, PA through Phoenix to Portland. We drove on the Historic route 30 and stopped at several waterfalls on our way to the hotel. We decided on giving The in house restaurant a try...excellent decision. The... More

It was a Mother's Day Brunch. A delightful variety of meats, fish, and salads with unique and very tasty seasonings. One of those "if only I could eat more" moments. Initially seems expensive, but where else can one find such variety and quality? Service excellent, View of the Columbia River and boats and barges, a great bonus. It was a... More

We stopped for lunch based on the great reviews. Waitress was great and gave great service, ambience was very good but our sandwiches were just average.

This is one of the best restaurants I have been to for the price. They have wine bottle specials one night a week (I think it is only one night). My favorites are the roasted beet salad and when they have it, the crab cakes. Breakfast, they have wonderful oatmeal and egg dishes, some vegetarian breakfast entrees. There is a... More

Excellent taste, nice atmosphere, good service, and excellent food options. This is not a cheap eats place. We got to talking with The waiter korey and asked him who planned the meal optiins etc. He said the chef (can't remember the name) It is obvious this person put thought and effort into it. I think chefs deserve tips too.
