You know when you arrive a little ahead opening time and folks are lined up for the door to open, that this is a popular place to dine. It was that we have not eating here on festive days, but it confirmed others agreed with our choice. From the start to finish the service was right on. We had the... More

After driving by for years, decided to finally stop in for dinner. Didn't have a reservation, but they found us a table on a Friday night. I knew it was a seafood place before visiting (but I am not a big seafood lover). I noticed other review sites mentioned "something for everybody on the menu", but I would say it... More

Enjoyed a light supper with a friend here. We started with two excellent cocktails. One of these included Strega, shaken with egg whites and a few other ingredients, and this was one of the most interesting palate experiences I have ever had. The basil-wrapped jumbo shrimp was so perfect we had to make ourselves order something different for the entree.... More

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...
