    The team at Cabezon get all the details right, from the creative cocktail specialties, to the rock salt that comes with the chewy fresh bread and butter. We like that the menu is short, well balanced and always changing.

    I was looking for a place to take my girlfriend for “Valentine’s Day” since we both spent the day working on actual Valentine’s Day. She is pescatarian, and this restaurant hit all of the things that we wanted. Quiet enough to have conversations, music wasn’t too loud, lighting was romantic, and candles on the table. The servers made sure we had everything we needed and our main course came out rather quickly. I will definitely be coming back to this place for another special occasion. The food was AMAZING.

    Cabezon is a cool neighborhood-ish restaurant: reminds me of the same in San Francisco. Recommended to us as a seafood restaurant, Cabezon is more. Good selection of courses—all our choices were excellent! Busy!

    First time visiting Cabezon and the food was extremely good and the servers were attentive and friendly. We appreciate that they focus on locally sourced and sustainable seafood and everything was prepared and presented with an attention to detail. We recommend Cabezon for an enjoyable evening out with family and friends.

    For a fish place that has always been excellent with those entrees, their pork chop and steak items are consistently very good. Added to the experience are the blown glass lighting and the very cool art on the wall. Love it! Coming back, and more than once.

    The place was nice, and the service was good. There were lots of people that seemed to be enjoying the food. For us the food was expensive and not very good. The Cioppino is basically tomato soup with fish. It had one crab leg, which if you eat crab, you know it's a waste, since there is hardly any crab. It was messy and basic. The Eloisa Farm Greens was expensive for field greens and Italian dressing and a few hazelnuts. The Hawaiian Ono was not cooked, we sent back, but ended up not eating. The appetizer was tartare, and we did not realize it wasn't cooked, when offered. We did not eat, and they did not compensate. We maybe should have asked, but I figured they would. It was not a great experience for us, but like I said other people seemed to be enjoying themselves. We don't drink so maybe after some wine or spirits it would have tasted better.

    Love Cabezon! Even ice, snow, and Gorge winds won’t keep them from serving up delicious food! Smoked sturgeon, pale pink lettuces, cioppino packed with seafood, and perfectly seared Petrale sole with roasted romanesco, chanterelles….heavenly after a week of icecapades. The service is also top notch, a rare treat in this town. A classy neighborhood place with gorgeous food.

    We have been coming to Cabezon since it opened 14 years ago. It just keeps getting better. We've never been disappointed. The Cioppino is the best in town. All the fish so fresh and the preparations creative and delicious. At our dinner for four last week, two of the people got meat dishes, which we also amazing. The two dining rooms are cozy, comfortable and pleasantly spaced. The servers are always attentive and friendly. One of the very best restaurants in Portland.
