Family home for Thanksgiving and have wanted to go to Can Font. It was perfect! Food was great, noise level was not bad so we could have conversations without yelling. I’ll definitely go back next time I’m in PDX!

Several misses with the service including missing flatware. Chairs that will keep the chiropractors of Portland busy for years to come. The food was fine but in no way inspired or special.

Fantastic food and drinks! My friends and I have been back many times just for the Paella Negra alone. Squid ink isn't a terribly familiar ingredient for many American eaters, but is well worth checking out.

Nice little boutique Spanish restaurant with some of the best PAELLA we have had in quite a while. Good fresh fish and proper rice and many nice appetizers
Definitely a must restaurant
Like to have seen California wines on the wine list but they do have a small corkage if U wish to bring your own which we did.

Friendly service and would definitely go back and visit for another delicious meal.

The dinner was lovely. We started with the bread and tomato appetizer then shared the black ink paella ( five stars). Between four of us we ordered the flan, the chocolate dessert and the ice cream with caramel. The chocolate dessert was the winner. The flan was a disappointment, the lemon flavor didn’t enhance the dessert. Our friend didn’t feel there was enough caramel on her ice cream. We did clean our plates so I give it 4 stars. We would definitely go back!

Not good, when first opened, it was good. Now, the paella is too salty, the duck got no flavor, and ya, its way too pricey. You paying $30 per person for a seafood paella with seafood which is not fresh (stink)and way too salty.

Very good food. Paella, though very good, not at a 5 star level. Descriptions tempting, execution lacks just slightly. Will go again, nice ambience. Service good

My husband and I went to Can Font to celebrate our anniversary. We have been before and have had better experiences in the past. Our table wasn’t ready at the time of our reservation. We were sat right next to the hot kitchen. Our waiter kept spilling wine all over our table when pouring it, and they ran out of all but one of the desserts. The food was delicious but the overall dining experience could have been better for the price of our bill.

Friendly and attentive staff. Tasty cocktails. Started with the Pulpo a la Plancha (seared octopus) and the Pan Con Tomate. The octopus was perfectly cooked. The grilled Catalan bread was delicately crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, topped with tomatoes. Then we shared the Paella de Mar y Montaña, which was highly recommended by our server. Great place for dates and conversation over a delicious meal.

I’ve been to Can Font previously and enjoyed the food, not blown away but good. Food was actually better this time, more consistent. Only knock was that several of the dishes were warm, not hot. Maybe sat at the pass too long?Restaurant wasn’t overly crowded so this shouldn’t have been the reason. Get the food at service hot and would have received a higher score.

This was our first visit to Can Font. We were warmly greeted, seated promptly, and service was excellent. We had a very fresh salad to start, and opted for a bottle of light-bodied Spanish red wine. We ordered the paella de mariscos as our main dish, with fresh fish, shrimp, clams and mussels. Delicious! Highly recommended!!!

I was looking forward to our meal as the restaurant came highly recommended. The croquetas de pollo were delicious. However, I was very disappointed with the paella de mariscos. SO MUCH RICE with very little seafood. I can't remember the last time I've seen such small clams and mussels. The four "langoustines" (aka shrimp) were small and so overcooked to be almost inedible. As was the fish of the day cod. For $56 for two people, I could have made a better meal with more seafood at home for less than half the cost.

Was really disappointed with everything about our experience from the moment we walked in. Nobody was at the front to greet us and show us to our table and we ended up hanging up our own coats and finding our party. Food was subpar. Incredibly stingy portions with the paella. It was all rice and about 4 small bites of cod and 4 tiny shrimps. The waitress was friendly but kept forgetting to check on us. One of the waiters who came out to bring a starter was flat out rude. The only good part about the night was that they remembered to bring a candle on dessert for my moms birthday. The waitress sang happy birthday which was sweet, bless her. But overall: very little value for money and disappointing food especially after reading great reviews and seeing photos of the restaurant. I would not recommend Can Font to a friend.

Every aspect of this was stunning - so fantastic to have Catalan cuisine in Portland. It was a truly memorable meal - the flavors provided a fantastic reminder of my last trip to Barcelona. The paella negra is a show stopper.
