Great Happy Hour prices on tapas and raw bar. Dollar oysters and half price tapas, hard to beat and very well prepared. The raw oysters and Kobe beef sliders are two of our favorites, but there's a large menu to choose from and all very good. We try to stop by whenever we're in the area and have always had... More

We really enjoyed ourselves at Embargo this past Saturday evening. The trio of musicians performing that night were outstanding. I believe they perform from 6:30 to 9:30 every Saturday, as we arrived shortly after 7 o'clock. We spotted them set up by the front entrance, as we passed the spacious windows from Maine Street. We got a seat upfront, and... More

Cape Cod is a wonderful place but it can be sleepy in the off-season. Fortunately we have Embargo to liven our spirits and provide the ingredients for a fun night out! Servers are efficient and friendly, giving the appearance that they are enjoying themselves along with the guests. Some nights feature a live jazz combo or other entertainment. There is... More

Here you'll find the recipe for a wonderful evening out : great food, warm attentive servers, wonderful live music, in a beautiful setting. We have eaten here again and again and each time we are impressed. In the past I found tapas restaurants to be to be very expensive and I usually left hungry. But not here. Plus it is... More

We ate at the bar......service was great and the bartender was very nice and even gave us other options for restaurants in... More

We only went here for pre dinner cocktails as we had already planned to eat elsewhere on Main Street. They have a good selection of cocktails to choose from and the atmosphere in the bar is good - we enjoyed sitting at the bar. We even came back after dinner for a second cocktail to finish off the evening.
