Thanks to TripAdvisor we found this place. Excellent service and really great seafood. The desserts were also top notch. Can't wait to try again. Only bad thing is parking.

The food at Cabezon was interesting without being overly fussy. My party had the Cod, NY Steak and Cioppino- all were well prepaired and attractively plated. The wine list is thoughtful and not overly expensive.

We thoroughly enjoyed dining at Cabezon. The food was outstanding -- we enjoyed local oysters on the half shell, Cesar salad followed by cioppino with fresh local seafood and a Petrale sole entree. The service was great.

Their menu changes, reflecting what's fresh for the day. I don't know if they will be serving crab legs in November, but your best bet is to either call them or check the menu on their website, when you are ready to travel... More
