30+ Tapas, Sushi, Flatbreads, etc. Everything we tasted was good, but not great. Great flavor on the Cajun Ahi Taco filling, but the tortilla tasted like they came from the grocery store. The gambas was good, but I've had much better. My advise to the owners would be shorten the menu and do them right.

Excellent from start to finish! After a long beautiful day on the water, off the shores of Nantucket, we (a party of six) decided to relax on the front patio, for cocktails and tapas. Drinks, and Food were fabulous! Wait staff couldn't have been better. Highly recommend!

This place is not to be missed!!! We had and opportunity for cocktails at Embargo's before dinner reservations and The Naked Oyster. Drinks were generously poured and the staff at Embargo's were entertaining! We returned for after dinner drinks just as the dancing started and were delighted to see the bar transformed into a Video Disco Bar. Latest light and... More

If you order your drink "on the rocks " there is an extra charge of $1.00. The Tapas were good, some outstanding , some not so. On the whole a good value except for $1.00 ice.

My boyfriend and I adore tapas restaurants. I do a lot of restaurant reviewing, so whenever we travel we scour the local restaurants listing to find a place to enjoy good food and a few coctails. It didn't take long for us to decide on Embargo. They open at 3:30, then happy hour (which includes half price tapas) runs from... More

We always hit Embargo 2-3 times on our week vacation. We have ordered many items from the Tapas Menu and every item is awesome! My wife loves the 1/2 price oysters from 4-6pm. Other favorites are the boneless short rib, the eggplant parm and the pan seared scallops. The service is alway top shelf, as well

We went here with our children for a few tapas to get out as we had a early dinner. We went here as read about it on TA. Patio was full so we were seated inside, Loud music but at least the music was good according to my 10 year old. Kids had the eddamme beans as nothing on the... More

Worth booking, especially on a Tuesday as I'd imagine lots of people had the same idea as us and wanted to try the tapas at half price. Really nice food, quite large portions for tapas, 2 dishes per person is probably sufficient unless you're really hungry! We especially liked the pan-seared scallops, the pork sliders and the lamb meatballs but... More

We visited on a Monday night during happy hour, so our tapas were half off. We tried a little of everything, but my favorite was the beef dhort rib. My wife absolutely loved the oysters and wanted to return the next day for more.
