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

Multnomah County Health Department environmental health spets conduct unannounced inspections of food service establishments. These inspectors evaluate food workers’ habits and practices, where an establishment’s food comes from and how food is stored, prepared and cooked. A restaurant must receive a score of 70 to pass the inspection.

Priority violations unable to be corrected at the time of the inspection must be corrected within 14 days and verified by a reinspection. Reinspections are not scored.

Customers will find a placard at the restaurant’s entrance that indicates if the facility passed the last inspection.
