A Letter from Aaron & Suzanne
Solstice Hood River is more than a pizza restaurant. It is a destination dining and hospitality experience that unites friends, families, and community with a common love of our region’s bounty. Inspired by the Columbia Gorge and seasonal harvests from our neighboring farms, our food and beverage menus are chef-driven and handcrafted. We consider ourselves Ambassadors to The Gorge, eager to bring our guests on a culinary journey through the place we call home.
The pride of Solstice is our wood-fired pizzas, leavened with old culinary traditions, our dough is made from regionally milled flour, slow-fermented for 72 hours, and fired to a perfect char in our imported Italian oven. While we’re honored to be so well known for our wood-fired pizzas, we’re also excited for our guests to try our seasonal specials, salads, small plates, pasta, entrees, and elevated classics. Our full bar program complements our dishes with beverage pairings ranging from culinary-inspired cocktails, local craft brews, regional ciders and award-winning wines to kombucha, house-made shrubs, and zero-proof options. Our culinary and bar teams work together to expertly highlight ingredients and artisanal products that have been grown or produced in our backyard by our neighboring farmers and makers.
Whether you are celebrating a special occasion, feeding a hungry family, or on vacation in the gorge, all are welcome at Solstice. We are proud to offer vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-friendly dietary options to our guests. Please ask about making any pizza with our house-made gluten-friendly crust!
Founded by husband-and-wife team Suzanne and Aaron Baumhackl, Solstice has been weaving itself into the fabric of the Columbia Gorge community since 2006. Our passions go beyond the plate via philanthropy that strives to actively support a wide range of local programs for arts, youth, food security, social services, and environmental justice. We believe in mentoring youth and new entrepreneurs in the industry and advocating for farmers and healthy food systems.
