Stopped in for a late lunch/early dinner. Awesome tapas with a wide selection variety and type of food, from sushi to escargot to BBQ ribs to the best pan-seared scallops ever. Medium-sized plates, where two for each person were more than sufficient. And during happy hour, 4-6 pm, 4 tapas + drinks cost us under $40! Cannot be beat for... More

Popped in for tapas and an excellent bottle of wine. Everything was great and my wife's lobster mac and cheese was pretty historic. What really made it though was first rate service from Liz who was attentive, informative and really helpful! Especially good value with half price tapas at happy hour or all evening on Tuesdays.

Want to get down! If you can feel that terminology then this must be a stop on your venture. Music, music, music and dance. Watch the crowd sway and swing until closing late. If you're a party animal then check this out. A must do!

This was our fourth visit and once again the atmosphere, service and food beyond reproach. We shared one cold (hummus, tabbouleh, tomato and basil)l and two hot Tapas (Kobe beef sliders and sea scallops) and actually felt as if we had consumed a huge meal. The hummus is prepared on site beginning w/dried chick peas (not canned) which makes a... More

We showed up late (after nine) on a cold Tuesday evening. Great tapas menu which we discovered was half-price that night. Super friendly service. Tapas menu was a great option for a light meal before bed. Kitchen was cooperative given that we were the only ones ordering food at that hour.

Located in the heart of Main Street, Embargo is a great place to stop for excellent tapas and outstanding cocktails. It is also a great spot to sit outside and people watch as you dine. There are many cold and hot tapas dishes to choose from. On Tuesday, tapas is half price all night. Inside, the bar is a large... More
