This is a busy local place with good food. We were seated quickly but initial drink service was remarkably slow.

First, you need reservations. Second, it is a little out of central Portland, but well worth the drive. We were there last year and really enjoyed the meal so went back. Go for the seafood. Spouse loves the mussels; I love the halibut- cleaned the plate. Very good wine list of mostly Oregon wines.

Cabezon had been recommended to me by a Portland native and I was not disappointed. The seafood dishes are fantastic.....fresh, great tasting, inventively sauced. I enjoyed a delightful seafood salad appetizer followed by a great tasting sea bass entree. Of course, there are wonderful Oregon wines to pair with the food. My waitperson, Jill, was knowledgeable and exceedingly helpful. Finally,... More

I visit Portland often and I always make it to Cabezon for at least one meal. Chef David Farrell consistently delivers high caliber fare with obvious attention to detail. The Cioppino is one dish that never leaves the menu for good reason. The other items change with the seasonal produce available. On the last visit we had the local black... More

As tourists in Portland recently, we were lucky to find Cabezon, since it seems to be a "locals secret" kind of place. The chef here specializes in the freshest seafood and local, sustainably grown ingredients, and he definitely did not disappoint The food was delicious, they have a good wine list that isn't too pricey, and our server was friendly...

We were staying at a hotel near the airport and didn't want to drive far for dinner. A search at TripAdvisor revealed that Cabezon should satisfy our desire for good food at a quiet nearby restaurant. And it did. The service and the food were good to very good. I had the catch of the day which was a Hawaiian... More

If you like interesting combination of flavors, you will love this restaurant. We chose to try 3 appetizers instead of one entrée---great chance to try 3 different treats (pork pate, Carolina Gumbo and Basil wrapped shrimp)---and were very satisfied, but did have enough room for Homemade blackberry ice cream sandwitches. They have a wide selection of wines and drinks for... More

Food and service were excellent. Jackie and Janessa were are servers. They were attentive and full of good information. Small menu but dishes were very good. Only one beer on tap but a pretty good wine list. Small venue. We were there on a Wednesday at 6:15 and got the last table. Strongly suggest reservations.
