Went on Saturday night and had a great dinner. First time but not our last. Had a wonderful Caesar salad with great dressing - very fresh. Also tried the basil wrapped shrimp. I could have eaten two orders it was so good. It comes with glass noodles and vegetables. Also had the cioppino and the fish was very fresh. Friend had the fish dish and it was very good - great sauce. Two desserts - ginger cake and creme brulee. I tasted both the creme brulee was outstanding. The restaurant has comfortable chairs, was not noisy and the wait staff was attentive and knowledgeable.

We had a fabulous meal at Cabezon. It is easy to get to in Northeast Portland - away from the hustle and bustle of city center. The food is locally sourced and everything, except the bread, is made on site. We sampled the Chive Blinis, Kale-Radicchio Caesar Salad, the catch of the day, and the lavender-honey Creme Brulee. Everything served in a pleasant, relaxed atmosphere.

Tucked away in a corner of NE Portland, this restaurant is worth a drive. Great decor and cozy atmosphere, the food and service and wine was spectacular--this is from a California foodie and wine lover. All four of us loved our meals: wonderful crusty bread and butter, delicious tomato soup, freshest of fresh oysters, pate to die for, an excellent pinot noir...lovely pan seared sand dabs, and my husband swore he had the best cioppino he had ever tasted. Lovely lavender-infused creme brulle and yummy chocolate pot de creme--we were raving and remembering for days. In a city of great food and wine, this is a dining experience not to be missed!

This small restaurant is within walking distance of my home, and I feel lucky to have such a nice little spot close by. The seafood is fresh and artfully prepared. Good cocktails and pleasant service make this a great experience.

So glad we visited Cabezon for dinner. The basil shrimp appetizers were divine, the classic Caesar salad was fresh and cold, and the ling cod with purple potatoes and fried cauliflower was wonderful!!! The chef really has a gift with flavorful, balanced, subtly flavored and amazingly textured combinations. Our server, Norman, was friendly and attentive. Overall excellent service. Definitely will return. Love finding great new places
