While this isn't a strictly seafood restaurant we were in the mood for fish and decided to do something different - this came up in our "seafood" search. It was MLS All Star weekend in Portland and we didn't want to deal with the downtown/obvious. Love the Hollywood neighborhood anyway and it was a beautiful night so we sat outside... More

First, the food. OK, not great. The Caesar salad was a mistake. The ciopinno had almost no fish, too many clams, two mussels, one of which was not open, and a broth of no particular distinction. But what I don't forgive is that when I asked the waitress to call a cab (we were Charles's tourists), she handed me a... More

We were taking my son to the airport to go back to school. We read all the great reviews on this place and thought this would be a good farewell dinner. I had the Sea bass, which was cooked okay, but the preparation was not the best. Both the wife and daughter had the Salmon and loved it! I guess... More

My wife, 11 year old grandson and I returned to Portland for our flight home after spending a week sightseeing in Oregon and Washington. I found Cabezon on Trip Advisor when searching for a good local restaurant within a 15 minute drive from our airport hotel. What I expected to be a routine dinner turned out to be the best... More

AMAZING is the only word I need to use the describe this place. The Chef is spot on and the food quality here is a notch above anything else I've had in a long time. The seafood is fresh, mostly local stuff, and the presentation of the food is fantastic. Would definitely return again. The menu is smaller, so don't... More

Truly a wondrous experience. Particularly enhanced by our waitress, Jen. Unique flavors. The lamb dish was a Moroccan delight. The fish cooked to perfection on a bed of yumminess. Shared almond cake dessert and ice cream sandwiches- stunning! What a find!

I was looking for a restaurant to take my wife to dinner for her birthday. I always look at trip advisor for reviews. I decided to go to Cabezon. Small restaurant, nice inside. You can see the cooking if you sit at the bar. Michelle, our waitress was attentive, good attitude, great. Food: I ordered sturgeon, never had it, with... More

We went to Cabezon for dinner. The food was nothing special. I'm not a proponent of huge portions, but theirs were pretty small, though fancifully prepared. Deserts were total disappointment. The prices were pretty steep, especially considering the location.

Visiting in Portland, were invited to Cabezon by local friends. Snarfed up 2 dozen oysters in 10 minutes, maybe 15, as we settled into dinner. It's warm in the place, so was happy to be sitting near the door for a breeze. Had my first ever sand dabs and they were delish. Others had bouillabaisse, salmon, and a version of... More
