Great place with an intimate feel

We were looking for a seafood restaurant in the Portland area with unique food and we found it at Cabezon. This is an out of the way place with an unusual Spanish inspired menu. Although I would recommend reservations you may find very intimate seating in front of the restaurant. Although the... read more

Wonderfully fresh seafood delightfully prepared as well as locally sourced meats. The cioppino was excellent but fell woefully short on some ingredients; my serving had a single Dungness leg in it. Service was professional but rather cold, clearly a seat was being served rather than a person. The check was presented before it was requested, a major faux pas. Otherwise,... More

New the the neighborhood, this restaurant combines a personal style with semi formal ambiance. The food is surprisingly good. Best among the dishes is the cioppino.

We called for a reservation and when the woman heard that we had 13 people she said we'd have the new private party room. She also said the chef would be calling me. She promised to email me a menu, which she didn't do, but the day of the reservation the chef did call and we discussed the menu. I... More

4 of us all had different seafood entrees (they serve what they have fresh for that day) and after a sample of each they were all wonderful... fresh, cooked perfectly, well plated and affordable. The wine selections by the glass and bottle were plentiful and reasonably priced. The staff was professional, attentive, and knowledgeable. I've been to other seafood restaurants... More

This restaurant should be rated higher. It has an interesting decor and great atmosphere. The service is excellent. My wife and I ordered fish (2 different kinds) and both dishes were very good. The fish had a nice crust but was tender and juicy inside. The sides were very tasty and different as well. We never order dessert but did... More

Came here for my final vacation meal before we headed to the airport Saturday night. What a way to end our stay in Oregon. My wife had the cod and I had the sea bass on jambalaya with crab andouille. For desert we shared an order of the house made huckleberry ice cream sandwiches. Everything was prepared perfectly, the food... More

Travelling from out of town, we picked Cabezon as it offered NW seafood. The space is attractive (very cool glass light fixtures over the bar!) and the staff was professional, attentive, and knowledgeable. Of course, the food makes the restaurant and Cabezon excelled. Ciopino, tuna and cod entrees were fantastic. Highly recommended!
