Love their food, love their service, love the ambiance! We celebrated my husband's 50th birthday there. Wish there were more choices on the menu so we can try new things...

Excellent dinner! We elected for 5 Tapas + dessert for our dinner for 2 and did not order any entrees. It was perfect. Nice flavor varieties and the server did a great job pacing the meal out into 6 courses. The octopus/scallop dish, the beets, and the patatas were our favorites. Would be great to go with a larger group so ordering the paella (which can only be ordered as a 2-person serving) could be a part of the meal rather than the whole meal! Definitely more upscale-looking interior than your typical Portland restaurant but the atmosphere was very casual. Enjoyed our experience and will certainly go again.

The staff was really great. We tried the Negev Paella this time, it was a bit too salty for our taste but we were told about the saltiness ahead of time.

Such a great meal! My family visited for the holidays and we are out A LOT. The group all said they enjoyed dinner at Can Font the most. The paella, especially the seafood paella negra, was incredible!

Me and a small group recently dined at Can Font.... we are all paella fans and were so looking forward to the evening. The online menu indicated the selections had a minimum of two orders which we were prepared for as we were planning on serving family style between us, but when we were preparing to order they let us know that during their slower periods (usually weekdays) they are able to make individual orders, so that was nice to accommodate even though we did not take advantage of the offer and ordered two of the four choices for with servings for everyone. We started with a couple appetizers (definitely try the Bambas!).... We did feel the server "guided" us a bit astray suggesting we have 3 apps along with our dinner... it would have been way too much food (not sure if she was just trying to pad the bill. While the paella tasted good, we did feel the amount of meat in the dishes was a bit light (particularly for the price). At $26/$28 per person it was probably about $5 per person more than it should have been for what it was. We did have a crème brulee for dessert which was OK, not special... but then again, it's just custard. The rest of the dessert offerings was rather uninteresting. Overall we had a nice time - food and company combined, and will likely come again... but really the food/price balance on it's own does have some room for improvement.

First time at Can Font. Food and wine were excellent but the lack of service staff greatly impacted the overall dining experience. If I could infer from the apologies from the host, they were understaffed for a Saturday night. Don't mind waiting but it was a bit more than one would expect for a reasonable wait/delay in service and delivery. This was evident when there were several tables still empty and service efficiency was not improved and this was around 8:30-9PM.

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.

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.
