If you love martinis make sure you stop at Embargo some evening & enjoy the fantastic LIVE jazz music as well as a great martini. Good luck trying to pick one from the long list!!

Love the chocolate martini. Bartender (female) great service. Even made my friend a mini-chocolate martini since she's sensitive to alcohol.Also put a candle in her watermellon for her b'day. Very tasty tapas.Have been here several times and have never been disappointed.

Sit outside unless you do not mind a noisy venue. The food was excellent and well priced. Great place to order 4-5 small plates! Service was a bit lacking. We had already had our first two tapas plates delivered before we got the bottle of wine that we ordered!

Since it's tapas, you can just stop in for some nosh but it's better to come starving so you can try everything. All the fare is amazingly good but a few suggestions include the lobster and chorizo sruffed quohog, the tempora vegetables, and the lobster mac and cheese. But there are tons of selections, so even if none of those... More
