    Indicated in reservation it was for a birthday, but no acknowledgement at any time. Server was dismissive when we didn’t order alcohol or starters. Had to ask several times for beverages.

    My mom and I had a lovely dinner here. We had the blue ni and the Caesar to start and both were so good. The Caesar was so garlicky and plated beautifully. The cioppino was the best I ever had and was stuffed with seafood. The salmon was also cooked perfectly, not dry. I was happy to see a reasonable wine list too! We will be back for sure!

    Dinner was fabulous. Great flavors and wonderful portions. Nitpicking but appetizers were served at least 5 minutes apart. Obviously the kitchen had trouble firing the courses but overall wonderful meal and cocktails.

    Each course was a treat. We enjoyed oysters, a calamari appetizer, and a salad first, followed by fish entrees, both of which were fresh and creative, as well as delicious, and finished it off with lavender honey creme brulee, which was also lovely. Our server was attentive enough without hovering. A lovely evening overall!

    Unfortunately, we were very disappointed with the main courses we received at Cabezon. The service was wonderful, the ambience was great and our wine and starter (pate) were terrific. The mains however fell far short of our expectations. There was no flavour throughout either dish except salt (and lots of it). Bland halibut and extremely salty lamb chops made for a disappointing end to what was shaping up to be a wonderful service.

    First impression when I walked in was that it was a cozy restaurant, me and my date were very comfortable where we sat and it was spaced out enough that we could tune out our neighbor. The server was super knowledgeable of the menu and the silly questions we had about the fish. The food was spectacular, and it was in a larger portion that I was expecting. Left feeling great and satisfyingly full.

    Anniversary dinner was great. Sat outside bistro style. Started with cocktails which are huge and delish. The Huckleberry Fizz is a must have. Had the blinis with caviar and a Ceasar salad. For dinner had the Ciopino and my husband had the pork chop. Both were executed well and tasted delicious. For dessert we opted for the Pot du crème (chocolate) and the Crème Brûlée. The Pot du crème was rich and is enough for two. Service was impeccable with just the right level of attention. Sitting outside was delightful although the tables for two are tiny and are folding so…some issues with leg bumping the table. And we were on the corner end so, people walking by us was a bit annoying. Overall it was a wonderful evening.

    Exceptional food; we started with the house made pate, which was great, and the chef’s special appetizer, an amazing tuna crostini. The cioppino, grilled lamb chops and pork chop were all exceptional. The lavender honey creme brûlée was a cut above the typical crème brûlée and the chocolate pudding was delicious. Cocktails were very good and the service was great. We were there at 5:30 on an August Sunday evening en route to the airport and it wasn’t busy but we imagine that they must get insanely busy. This is definitely worth traveling to if you live in the Portland metropolitan area. We’ll definitely return and give it a very high recommendation.
