    I think the size of the salads and entrees were very small. We not offered bread with salad. We are two women, not huge appetites, but the salad was very delicious, but only enough for one very small eater. The same with the paella. Portions for the price, not good.

    Can Font was highly recommended by sons Spanish Teacher, so I decided to take him for his birthday dinner while we were in Portland. It was our first time and didn’t disappoint! The waitress even surprised us with an appetizer and Birthday cake. We’ll be back when we get a chance to travel to Portland again.

    Gabriel, our server, is awesome. He helped with our wine to pair with our food . The tapas were amazing and the paella Negra so delicious. Also to start things off we had Negronis that were expertly concocted. This is our new favorite place in The Pearl District!

    Service excellent prompt informative and courteous. Food was a little bland. If I was to return would order 3 or4 starter items and treat them as Tapas.

    We were seated promptly and provided water and menus. It became clear there was a shortage of waitstaff as the waits between normal interactions grew. We were pleased with the selection of starters and decided to focus on ordering three of those to start. The waiter was irritated that we weren't ready to order our mains, warning us not to use up our allotted time for the table! The starters were meager, not very tasty and expensive. We asked for the check and left well before things got ugly. We had been wanting to try the place for some time because of it's appearance from the sidewalk and our desire to have great spanish food. A real disappointment, mainly because of the gap between the price and quality of the food items.

    Overall we enjoyed this place. The only downside was that this was not authentic Spanish cuisine. We ordered the Paella and it was far from a traditional paella. We ate it and liked it but were looking forward to having a real paella so that was a little bit surprising. But, it was still good and we still enjoyed it!

    The service was very slow at first. My guest needed something to eat immediately, but even when we asked for just some bread, the service was slow responding. Later the quality of the service improved to an acceptable and average level. The food was okay and imaginative, but undistinguished. The prices were unreasonably high given the service and the food. Overall we were rather disappointed.

    I really wanted to love it but I didn't. Service and ambiance were great. Food was very mediocre. Rawish steak, no seasoning on steak or veg and mushy rice in the paella. Complimentary champagne for the occasion (birthday) was a very nice touch. The effort was there, unfortunately the execution was not.

    Solid tapas at a moderate price point and a great option for large groups. Menu is fairly traditional for tapas - not terribly inventive but very well executed. Server was willing to adjust some tapas to suit the size of our party - for example, the parma ham plate was served with extra bread. Red pepper sauce on the roasted vegetables were especially delicious, elevating what could have been a boring plate. Ordered seven tapas and four servings of paella for a table of six, plus mocktails and dessert. Plenty of food, about $80/person including tip.

    It was a birthday night out alone because the friends I was supposed to go with when was ill in the other, not able to make it. So I decided to go by myself just like when I used to travel to Spain and fine sola. Gabriel was an attentive, wonderful server, and made me feel right at home, even though I was on my own. The Spanish tortilla was out of this world, and the paella is the best I've had in Portland and truly rivals that which I've had in Spain.

    We had reservations for 7 PM. When we arrived, we were told they were running behind and we’d have to wait for our table. We didn’t wait long however, as a result of our wait, we were informed that our entire order would be on the house! That was completely unexpected!! We were even encouraged to order more that our two items. We’ll be returning very soon and I’ll recommend this place endlessly!

    I have dined at Can Font five or six times starting in 2018. It is not the same quality it once was.The signature octopus dish was over salted and under braised. Most items we tried were picked up in the deep fryer. Waitperson tried to convince us that the Iberico ham coquettes were vegetarian ( my partner is veggie). The torta espanole was not thermalized ranging from semi warm to cold. I am a retired chef and was a big fan of CF. Please focus on the basics, and training is paramount.

    This place is really great and a must if you live in the Portland metro area. The staff were very nice, the place was classy and clean, and the food was very good. I'm not sure if the chef got a little aggressive with the salt on our Paella, but you may want to ask for light salt when ordering it specifically. Everything else was spot on in our opinion.
