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

Multnomah County Health Department Environmental Health Inspectors conduct unannounced inspections of food service establishments. These inspectors ensure food safety by evaluating worker habits and practices, food origins and storage in the restaurant. In addition, they check how food is prepared and cooked, cooling, holding and reheating temperatures.

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 its last routine health inspection.
