This was my first visit to Cabezon. Ordered the scallops. Excellent and very tender. Also outstanding wine list and definitely save room for dessert! Also, I was very pleased with their COVID precautions (spaced tables, sanitizer at every table, masks, etc.).
Dinner club with friends. Great place, very nice atmosphere, food was incredible!
This was our first time here, really really enjoyed it! The food was fantastic and interesting! Service was good and loved the glass lamps over the bar and extra dining room. We definitely will be back !
Great as every other time we’ve been there.
Best dining experience I've had in some time - the service was exceptional and the food was fantastic
My partner and I were celebrating his promotion and decided to try Cabezon. Our expectations and taste buds were overwhelmed. What an amazing treat! Such delicious gastronomical delights. Superb presentation and exceptional service. Definitely recommend to all.
Excellent food. Great place for perfectly done and very fresh fish with creative and flavorful preparations. Pleasant and well informed server. On the next visit to Portland, I am going back.
I've been here many times and the Cioppino was as good as always. Great bar to boot
Very unpretentious; delicious food; super friendly staff; all around great experience!
As usual, they did not disappoint! we order the following
All were prepared well and delicious!
Looking forward to our next visit!
Always a fantastic meal. Just the right amount of variety of high quality dishes and drinks on the menu. Great service.
Great place to bring that special person for a meal!
Restaurant was overall great with wonderful food and dining experience. Covid rules however are very annoying. Restaurant required that anytime the staff was at the table masks be put back on- even when still enjoying an appetizer or taking a sip of water. It was very inconvenient and less than desirable. I would love to go back however would not go back during Covid mask rule which is far more extreme than the state mandate.
Great food! Loved the new outdoor heater!
Food was good but hard to enjoy because it was cold in the dining room. Some diners were wearing coats and hats indoors! Maybe that’s the Oregon way, but I’d rather have not had the inside temps not match the outside temps!!
Amazing food in a truly relaxing and romantic atmosphere. The staff was so courteous and helped create a safe and friendly dining experience. The Thai Coconut Soup and the Mesquite Roasted Pork Chop were to die for! Highly recommended
Wonderful choices, wonderful service. I can't wait to go back!
Wish we had found this place sooner! I never knew about Cabezon and found them via Open Table search. We were over the moon with every aspect. And we felt safe the whole time given their attention to COVID requirements.
Well done, Cabezon. See you soon!
p.s. - get at least two orders of the bilinis.
Cabezon is ultimately reliable, both in terms of food and service.
We ate at an outside table on a beautiful evening. I had the lamb and the flavor was outstanding. We have eaten at Cabezon before and we are always delighted. Of course, the fish is their specialty and it lives up to their reputation.
Love this place. The food was just not as spectacular as usual. Will definitely be back.
Wonderful food at a reasonable price. Excellent service.
to say the food was amazing is an understatement. Service was a bit slow but I’m sure it is because of Covid.
Amazing food and awesome service!
This was my first time eating here! Fresh and delicious. I would recommend the cioppino. Cocktail was good as well.
Great food! Everything we had was delicious. And, they have a very good COVID-19 protocol in place: good distance between tables, facemasks were required when away from the table and when servers were at the table (that's how it should be), and hand sanitizer was available at every table. It was a great place to celebrate a birthday.
Had good reviews online, and didn't disappoint. Oyster chowder?!? OMG
Melange of flavors in reimagined dishes. Inventive mocktails, and superb service. Value was outstanding.
Enjoyed what I ate. Felt a bit pressured to order more than what we had originally intended which wasn't amazing. We shared an entree with an appetizer and I had explained how my SO and I had already eaten a bit earlier which is why we didn't settle on two entrees. Good food.
The food was incredible. We had the duck and cioppino and there were both amazing. The service was a little shaky but due to crazy times we understood. The food is so good we could over look the service.
This restaurant is quaint, regularly delivers great food with top notch service
Everything was amazing! We can’t recommend highly enough:)
Menu varies often with new offerings.
Wonderful fish and Cioppino
Undercooked salmon, sent it back and then still undercooked
Great food, always creative, great staff, our go to place
great food and great service, that's all we want!!!
Love this place. Great neighborhood restaurant. We need to go more often.
We met the chef in line at the farmers market and were impressed with the ingredients he was buying. Learned he worked at Cabezon Restaurant and went there the same evening. Dinner was excellent!
Never disappointed when we dine here :)
One of the best restaurants in Portland. Menu has subtle variations every few days, specials always a treat.
Some of the best gazpacho we have had, Caesar salad also good - except not pre-chopped and left to you to cut into bite size.
Every entre we tried, Halibut, Sturgeon, Black Cod all prepared perfectly, with creative vegetable medley, crispy cauliflower and even quiche sometimes.
Nice varied wine list, both red and white - even a few pink!
Service good across the board - everyone works together, blended service results in even better than single outstanding staff member.
