Mi Cava & Cocina family has been in the restaurant industry for 30+ years, although it has been a different concept than MI CAVA & COCINA, our passion for quality food and drinks is unparalleled. Mi CAVA & COCINA is a very long-planned project that took years of development; from looking for the perfect location which will make an impact on the community, to finding the perfect team to create an amazing menu and be confident that we can deliver exceptional service. From multiple short trips around the Northwest to the very long tiring trips to Mexico seeking inspiration, to countless hours creating the recipes that made it to the menu.

Mi Cava & Cocina is contemporary cuisine inspired from areas South of Mexico to the Pacific Northwest. We will be working with ingredients directly from the source to ensure freshness and sustainability.

    We were celebrating a birthday with friends. We had a wonderful experience both with the service and the food. All of the staff were friendly and attentive. We felt like family. The food was delicious and Ezekiel, the owner, made our evening feel as though we were all celebrating together.

    This place is incredible. Great family owned business that takes care to make good food and takes care of their customers. I had their seafood enchiladas and they were incredible. You could tell that the seafood was fresh and the sauce was probably made in house because it was considerably better than sauce from other places. My wife got the sirloin steak and it was possibly the best steak we have ever gotten in Portland and we have been to every steakhouse downtown. If you are considering going there, just go. Incredible Mexican food, cocktails, and excellent service.

    Great place to eat. I loved the pulpo and the clams. My steelhead was very good. I enjoyed the tortillas, fast and hot and tasty. I will go back; the service was very attentive and helpful. Very unique menu, not many places like this on that side of PDX I happy to be close

    Really great spot for a date or a group night out. Our server was really nice and attentive. We ordered both of the margarita samplers which, no lie, was basically like getting 8 full size margaritas. Our favorite was the tamarind! The seafood they use in their dishes is really fresh and tasty and the plates are totally shareable. Love the mariachi playlist too, it was fire! I think this would be a fun spot to have dinner at when the place is packed to be honest. :)

    We tried this restaurant 2 weeks ago and have been back twice. Tried different menu items. Exceptional food. The pulpo and pork carnitas are the best. This feels like elevated spanish food. Amazing flavor combinatons. Creative and tasty drinks too. Very attentive service too. Highly recommend this place

    We enjoyed our meals but my shrimp tacos didn't contain much shrimp. I had the margarita sampler which contained 4 good sized samples but they were extremely sweet and tasted like bottled mixes. Service was very good.

    We wanted to finde Mexican food with a flare. We loved every dish we ordered. Definitely recommend this restaurant. We do though have a complaint on the selection of wine. For it being called “Cava” Cellar it did not have a big wine or tequila selection. Well at least not that we were offered.

    The food was pretty good but our server was very shady. It was our first time at this place. They asked when we were seated if we wanted chips and salsa. We said yes. Some time later a different server came by and set guacamole and chips down without saying anything. We thought nothing of it and we’re still waiting on our salsa. It never came and when we got the bill they had added a $15 charge for an order of guacamole. When confronted about having called it salsa the server responded “that’s just what we call it”. Very gross business practice and I definitely won’t return.

    Our main courses and drinks were amazing. The drinks were beautiful and not too sweet. The pork belly Molé was delightful and the seafood enchiladas were also to die for. The guacamole and salsa were a little bland but our server BB was attentive and personable. Looking forward to going back again!

    The mussels are fantastic. All the food is great. The restaurant took over an old Newport Bay restaurant so the ambience isn't what you would expect from a local place with food this good. So worth going. Try it!

    This was an unexpectedly lovely dining experience. We were just looking for something pretty close to the airport but not out of our way, and Mi Cava couldn't have been a better selection. The service was attentive but never in the way, and the food was really good. Everything we ordered was delicious and perfectly prepared. Definitely want to go back!

    The service started out strong. The margaritas were very good, but we had to wait a while for our second round. My arroz con pollo was fine, but my husband’s pork carnitas were very dry. We frequent many Mexican restaurants in the area, and I was very disappointed when we had to pay for chips and salsa. The patio was beautiful and the ambiance was nice, but we will probably not be returning.

    Was surprised at how empty the restaurant was. Service was slow due to only one server who also functioned as the bartender. Great flavor for meals. Two alcoholic drinks that I had were mixed strong, but had some overpowering elements. Would go back and try different drink options.

    The food at Mi Cava y Cocina is extraordinarily good! It's inventive and fresh; not your typical Mexican food; probably more authentic. I wish that they were located closed to downtown Portland. It's a little out of the way for those who live closer to the center. The prices are certainly like those in downtown Portland, but as I said the quality of the food is outstanding. Strangely, the menu does not show prices for the margaritas. Our waiter said that they were all $10-15, so imagine my surprise when those we ordered were $19 each! The drinks were delicious however.

    This really is a wonderful restaurant. Fresh takes on classic Mexican dishes, the seafood was fresh and the steak was amazing. The menu and service belongs in a spot downtown and I’m glad it’s so close. The location hasn’t had the best restaurants so I really hope it catches on and lasts.
