Off-Site Catering

Most off-site events are to commemorate big milestones in the lives of our clients. These events represent lots of time, energy and money. Celilo honors this investment with great care and as much individual attention as possible. Our catering coordinator, Heather Sullivan works closely with clients throughout the planning process and brings years of event coordination experience to each special event. We have a great relationship with many venues throughout the Columbia Gorge, and can recommend places based on your site requirements.

Corporate Events & Retreats

Group retreats at Columbia Cliff Villas are a favorite among Northwest business teams for a beautiful getaway to the Columbia River Gorge. Chef Ben’s cooking classes, limited to 12 people and featuring the very best of the region’s foods, have been a big hit with groups. Catering is available for events and group retreats at the venue of your choosing.

Looking for that special spot for an intimate birthday party, anniversary celebration or special event? Check out an all-inclusive package for the Columbia Cliff Villas with Celilo catering for up to 10 guests. An additional 10 guests can be added with price adjustments.

“Thank you so much for all your hard work catering our wedding! The food, tables and dessert turned out absolutely wonderful. Everything was delicious, I was getting compliments all night long on how everyone enjoyed the food, drinks and blueberry tarts so much. The staff was amazing, we couldn’t have asked for anything more. Thank you again!”

“Celilo and Heather were wonderful to work with. The food was amazing and Heather made everything so easy for us, from being flexible on our bar arrangement, to making sure we have the right linens, and down to the small but super important details of making sure my husband and I ate during the wedding and tasted the delicious food we had selected for our guests!”
— Olga & Guillaume
“We were so happy with how everything turned out. Many guests said it was the best food they’ve had at a wedding and my dad, a lifelong fisherman said the salmon was the best he’s had. Thank you so much for your patience and help during the planning process, you were a joy to work with.”
– Jennifer & Seth
“Coming from Chicago with a catering background, we had high expectations when it came to our wedding caterer. Celilo’s delicious, local & colorful fare completely wowed our guests and their service was flawless. It was easy and lovely working with Heather, Ben and the rest of the team.”
