It was one of the best dinners we had for a long time. Fresh, inventive and surprising. The service was great and the atmosphere was very pleasant. This place is one of the reasons we'd like to visit Portland again.

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,...More
