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 food worker habits and practices, where food comes from and how it is stored in the restaurant, how food is prepared and cooked, cooling, holding and reheating temperatures.
Inspectors report observed violations that are not in compliance with Oregon Revised Statute 624 and Oregon Administrative Rule.
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.
