Excellent Birthday Dinner

Went here for my birthday. It was awesome. Can't go wrong. Especially enjoyed the lavender and honey crème brulee.

Savory, flavorful with chunks of lamb! I don't know if this is authentic or not. It was fabulous. Steelhead salmon was delightful, fries and aioli scrumptious, fresh Bibb salad. Everything our party tried was delicious. They accommodated special dietary concerns without hesitation. Not cheap....but worth every penny.

Oh my gosh, this was the best meal I've had in a really long time. I asked the waiter for some red pepper flakes because I usually have to add some to cioppino to get the flavor I like. The waiter said he didn't think I'd need it, but brought some to the table anyway. He was RIGHT. It was... More

We had heard great things about this spot and weren't disappointed. Everything was good, but the Cioppino was fabulous! Worth the short drive from downtown. If we make it back to Portland, we'll definitely try this place again.

Food was good as was the service. Not a romantic spot as a little too noisy but great spot for friends to have a good meal and visit.

I have had Cabezon on our list for a while and we finally made reservations and took a bottle of wine. The place is tiny and tucked back across the street from the Laurelwood Pub and Rhinelander. We were seated immediately. Our server got us drinks before we were ready for the wine. We both ordered seafood from a pretty... More

The three of us agreed Cabezon has the best seafood we have had - ever. In various dishes we had mussels, oysters, clams, crab, shrimp, cavier, and cod. Each prepared and accompanied perfectly whether it was sauce, breads or veg. The creme brûlée' and chocolate pot were also outstanding. We had the recommended wines and the pairing was spot on....

Our party of six devoured two and a half dozen oysters before dinner. They were great. I had the ciopinnio -- which we were told was always on the menu -- as did several others which almost lived up the the rave reviews others have given it (Dungeness crab was a bit tasteless) with fresh, perfectly cooked shrimp, good number...

It was one of the best dinners we had for a long time. Fresh, inventive and surprising. The service was great and the atmosphere was very pleasant. This place is one of the reasons we'd like to visit Portland again.

A little bit of a drive from downtown but well worth it for super fresh seafood. We had Oysters and local seafood specials. Everything was top notch with just enough in the way of seasonings and vegetables to enhance but not overwhelm the flavor of the fish. The wine list was also full of good local choices with thoughtful servers... More
