A gem among the excellent Portland restaurants. Excellent value and solid service. I have dined here for years and always have an excellent meal and a strong well made cocktail. Decor is lively and elegant without being stuffy. If you are looking for a great meal that won't break the bank with the freshest oysters, fish, and to die for... More

Thanks to TripAdvisor we found this place. Excellent service and really great seafood. The desserts were also top notch. Can't wait to try again. Only bad thing is parking.

This was a special treat from my foreign exchange student who is saying goodbye after living with me for 9 months. I haven't been here for a couple of years, and I first noticed that it has expanded into an adjacent space, which is a good sign. I had a half dozen oysters on the half shell, which were divine,...

We found this restaurant on TripAdvisor and took a Lyft ride of about 5 minutes from downtown. The ambiance is very friendly, like a place locals enjoy. Service was very attentive and the food was exceptional. We had the cioppino and the fresh fish of the day. Both were well prepared and presented. Dinner for 2 with drinks came to... More

Cabezon is excellent. Driving south in Washington we found we would be in Portland at 7:30. Looked up restaurants and noted this one. From the moment we entered the place we knew it was a good choice. The Romaine endive Caesar salad was dressed to the t's. Yes garlic. The chiopino was as good as it gets. Beer prices were... More

The food at Cabezon was interesting without being overly fussy. My party had the Cod, NY Steak and Cioppino- all were well prepaired and attractively plated. The wine list is thoughtful and not overly expensive.

I visited this place with my wife and another couple. We tried the Sole, Oysters, Basil-Wrapped Shrimp, and Lamb. Each was presented well, fresh and delicious. The service was excellent. Portions were small, which I think is great. I'm not a fan of large plates full of food, which end up being tossed or doggy-bagged. The dinner choices are limited,... More

After a fair amount of research, we chose this place after a long travel day - we were not disappointed! Laurel was our terrific server and helped us pick a number of dishes. We started with the Totten Inlet Mussels with borlotti beans, Spanish chorizo, fries and rouille and the beet salad (both great) and the Blini (just a small... More

We thoroughly enjoyed dining at Cabezon. The food was outstanding -- we enjoyed local oysters on the half shell, Cesar salad followed by cioppino with fresh local seafood and a Petrale sole entree. The service was great.

This is not your typical "seafood" restaurant by any means. It's an excellent local NW Cuisine restaurant that specializes in fish. Everything on the menu that we tried was excellent and the with the grill right in front of the bar we could see the preparation of each meal and attest to its excellence. The drink menu is deep and... More
