There are approximately 3,000 restaurants in Multnomah County and about 350 in east Portland.

Multnomah County Health Department environmental health specialists conduct unannounced inspections of food service establishments. These inspectors ensure food safety by evaluating food worker habits and practices.

Priority violations unable to be corrected at the time of the inspection must be corrected within 14 days and verified by a reinspection. A safe alternative procedure must be in place until the final correction is completed.

A restaurant must receive a score of 70 to pass the inspection. Reinspections are not scored. Customers will find a placard on the restaurant entrance that indicates if a facility passed the last routine health inspection.
