There are approximately 3,000 restaurants in Multnomah County and about 350 in Mid-Multnomah County.

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

Inspectors report observed violations that are not in compliance with Oregon statutes and rules. 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 a restaurant’s entrance that indicates if the facility passed its last routine health inspection.
