We went to Cabezon to celebrate our birthdays. When the reservationwas made, we notified staff of that, but they did not acknowledge it - at all. A bit disappointing. That said, the food was good and the drinks were also good. Not an excellent night, but would probably go back again. I had a monkfish dinner and my friend had... More

Recently invited to dinner at Cabezon Restaurant, Mid Northeast Portland. It is in a quaint if smallish storefront - but with an expanded interior. The inside is delightful in its feel and flavor. The staff was extremely helpful, gracious and informative. The food was varied and all meals were delicious - it is rated as a seafood restaurant but the... More

Made plans to dine at Cabezon based on TA reviews. No locals (professional travel people) had even heard of it because it is not in the downtown touristy areas. Go a little out of your way to find this restaurant and it will be worth it. The cioppino was delicious! Service was friendly and attentive. The only reason this is... More

We were in town for the weekend for a family function and we were looking for a place not too far from PDX after landing to have dinner. Found this place off of TripAdviser and made a reservation for 4. We unexpectedly ran into 2 family members at the airport and brought them along for dinner. Not nearly as hard... More

Our son & daughter-in-law brought us to Cabezon last night. It was their second visit and we would return! Nicely prepared and served local seafood, top-notch but friendly (not fussy) service. Tasty Orange Blossom margarita! Not a bit touristy, obviously focused on locals who know their seafood.

My wife and I went to dinner on a Sunday night (Yes they are open on Sundays) The waitress was very helpful in assisting us to understand their menu. We greatly enjoyed a chicken taco soup, an inventive sea food salad and a magnificent mussel entree. The food is top notch, and cooked to perfection. Anyone who likes seafood should... More

We were looking for great seafood and found it here! We had an unusual and delightful gazpacho for the appetizer ab the cioppino for seafood. It had a lovely broth, lots of seafood and cooked perfectly. There were many options on the menu we would have liked and nice space and art work.

Really enjoyed the excellent food in the warm atmosphere. Don't miss the excellent mussels with beans and chorizo topped with world class French fries and the dark chocolate mousse desert. Lots of interesting seafood but (although we didn't try them) some good looking meat dishes were served to the next table. Don't miss this one!

We were looking for a seafood restaurant in the Portland area with unique food and we found it at Cabezon. This is an out of the way place with an unusual Spanish inspired menu. Although I would recommend reservations you may find very intimate seating in front of the restaurant. Although the service was a little slow and the food... More

Wonderfully fresh seafood delightfully prepared as well as locally sourced meats. The cioppino was excellent but fell woefully short on some ingredients; my serving had a single Dungness leg in it. Service was professional but rather cold, clearly a seat was being served rather than a person. The check was presented before it was requested, a major faux pas. Otherwise,... More
