Riverside StoryRiverside has been a favorite of Gorge locals and visitors alike since the mid-1960s. As Hood River’s only waterfront dining, Riverside offers a location surpassed only by the quality of our food. Enjoy panoramic views of the Columbia River from the dining room and our expansive deck and patio. Since Chef Mark DeResta’s arrival in January 2009, dining at Riverside has had a distinct, fresh “Italian” flair that is DeResta’s trademark. Chef Mark’s style and philosophy is simple food with few ingredients, consistently and properly prepared. Everything he serves is fresh. Riverside’s dinner menu changes every couple of months depending on available fresh ingredients.
