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

This lovely restaurant is top notch. It opens at 5:30pm for dinner and you are seated at every other table. Candlelight and privacy add to the ambiance. The menu evidently changes daily as we were given a new one. I had New York Steak cut in tips over wonderful potatoes with onion rings on top. Others in my party had... More

Tried this place with my wife on our anniversary. We had a delightful experience. Great cocktails, good food and great service. I had the lamb and my wife had the Ciopino, both were excellent.

This could be a one word review. Order the cioppino (a pseudo-Italian seafood stew supposedly invented in San Francisco) and you will understand everything about this place. It's fresh, spicy, local, and layered with flavors), The menu is mercifully limited, and yoou can't make a bad choice. We tried, but everything was good. Friendly ambiance and service to match.

Stopped here for an early dinner while in town for a conference. Great seafood with fresh local ingredients. Mussels and fish were really fresh. Nice atmosphere, good service. The place fills up so get reservations if you want to eat during busy times. A more expensive than some places but really good food.

We really thought the food and atmosphere at Cabezon was fantastic! We had the mussels, cioppino, and sea bass...all fresh and delicious. And my margarita was fabulous. The restaurant is very quaint and seemed to be more of a restaurant favored by locals. The problem lies in the service. Our waiter took our order immediately and dinner arrive soon...a little...

We went to Cabezon to celebrate our birthdays. When the reservationwas made, we notified staff of that, but they did not acknowledge it - at all. A bit disappointing. That said, the food was good and the drinks were also good. Not an excellent night, but would probably go back again. I had a monkfish dinner and my friend had... More

Recently invited to dinner at Cabezon Restaurant, Mid Northeast Portland. It is in a quaint if smallish storefront - but with an expanded interior. The inside is delightful in its feel and flavor. The staff was extremely helpful, gracious and informative. The food was varied and all meals were delicious - it is rated as a seafood restaurant but the... More

Made plans to dine at Cabezon based on TA reviews. No locals (professional travel people) had even heard of it because it is not in the downtown touristy areas. Go a little out of your way to find this restaurant and it will be worth it. The cioppino was delicious! Service was friendly and attentive. The only reason this is... More

We were in town for the weekend for a family function and we were looking for a place not too far from PDX after landing to have dinner. Found this place off of TripAdviser and made a reservation for 4. We unexpectedly ran into 2 family members at the airport and brought them along for dinner. Not nearly as hard... More
