“The "real deal" for Cuban foodies”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

I've lived in Florida, Tampa and now San Diego, therefore I think I'm a good reviewer for authentic latin cuisine. A travel group met here and the service and food were excellent. Friendly, cozy, upbeat and fun. I've worked in food service (sales and merchandising) as well as had a catering company. I felt Embargo Grill has high standards for their ingredients and presentation. Will be holding another travel meet up group here again. The reviews speak for themselves (with exception of perhaps one). Would recommend.

“Caribbean Delight?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

My wife and I stumbled on to this one late afternoon on our way back home from the marina. Awesome food. We've taken all of our family member at one point or another. It has become one our "Go To" stops anytime we're down in San Diego around Point Loma. Definitely leave room for desert!
