The waitress were so awesome! The food was fresh and yummy ! I’m coming back soon!
Came across this spot visiting Portland. Not much was open during COVID so we opted here. Saw the menu on yelp before we came inside. Cool decorations as we got there in a dimly lit restaurant. Menu was not was we seen on yelp. Had Trouble reading the menu as we had to ask the server for clarifications. Food took awhile to come out but turned out to be really good! The cod was done very well as had sweet vegetables on the bottom. The lamb Pasta was good as well. Service was very slow as our server walked by our table couple times after we had finished eating. I think everyday they have a different menu..
Tonight my family and I dined at Cabezon Restaurant at 5200 NE Sacramento st in Portland. Our reservation was at 5:30 which is when the restaurant advertises that it opens. We were early but within minutes, a dozen or more people showed up as well for their reservations. Did I mention that dining here is by reservation only? Parking is on the street . They opened the doors at 5:33 which kind of annoyed me. If you advertise that you open at 5:30, open at 5:30 and don't keep me waiting if I showed up for my reservation on time. This restaurant is shockingly small. It has a bar and 3 small rooms with tables. The hand-made jellyfish lamps are a really cool touch. The menu is a roving menu meaning that it changes weekly according to what is caught locally. This set my expectations quite high. They have a great wine menu, a few nice mixed drinks, one beer on draft, and bottled beers. My husband ordered a draft beer and my family had mint iced teas. For dinner, I ordered the roasted Alaskan Halibut with mashers, romano beans, homemade pancetta, and onion rings. The Halibut was overcooked and very bland. I tasted no seasoning and the portion was microscopic for a mere $29. My daughter ordered the basil wrapped shrimp with glass noodles, cabbage, carrots, and spicy cashew sauce. She says it was ok but not great. My husband and I tasted it and both concluded that the noodles were dry (overcooked) and the sauce with the ingredients just did not mesh well. At least that was only $13.50. My husband ordered the green lip mussels with borlotti beans, Spanish chorizo and fries, and rouille. The portion was large which made my hubby's eyes sparkle. He said the mussels were very good but the fries were overcooked and the beans did not go well with the mussels. The broth was a little too salty as well. As an entree, it seemed disconnected. It was reasonably priced at $16.50. We decided to share 2 desserts before leaving. We ordered the nectarine crisp with homemade vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce. This was probably the best thing we ate all night. It was delicious! We also ordered the home made mint chocolate chip ice cream with double chocolate cookies. The ice cream was fantastic but the cookies were a little burned and overcooked which was the common denominator of the night. There were all kinds of culinary awards for this place on display but I have to be honest, I don't see it. Maybe it was an off night or week but I can only give it 2 stars.
