My Fiancee and I stopped in here twice, the first time, Our stomachs were bigger than the menu and we had to make a quick exit to find dinner. Later that evening we went back, and I am glad we did. At night the restaurant turns into a club, they move out some tables to reveal a nice size dance... More

Happy hour includes 1/2 price tapas that were out of this world! Everything we tried was delicious. We sat on the deck to people watch while we enjoyed our dinner. The service was friendly, efficient, and the prices were great!

Loved the tapas style menu. The food was great. The interior was stylish. The jazz band that was playing was very professional and fun to listen to and watch.

Outstanding tapas place right on Main Street. Great atmosphere with a big oval bar, friendly service folks and huge menu. We ate here 2 out of 3 nights in town, second time with friends.

I had heard from friends that the tapas at Embargo was good so we went there a couple of weeks ago on a Monday night only to find out the restaurant was closed. We decided to try and go again the following Sunday. Prior to driving there I checked the website and it indicated the restaurant was open. However, when... More

I wish I could give this place a better review but I'm afraid the staff was just very unfriendly and straight up rude. There was a few nice bartenders but the Front Door men were rude, the waitress was annoyed and just wasn't meshing well, you could tell she was bothered to be at work. The drinks were okay, couldn't... More

No bargain at 1/2 price. Food was really good. Had a variety of plates and shared them. The lamb meatballs were terrific. The escargot were good. The oysters were too spicy for me. And the stuffed mushrooms were good but only 3 in an order. We managed to spend $50 for 4 small plates and 2 draft beers. And this... More

Tuesday half priced tapas is a must!! We've tried many different offerings of their small plates & they're all great so far. We vacation on the Cape every year & this restaurant has been consistently fantastic. We've been going to Embargo every year for over a decade & never had a bad meal or experience! Love their food!!

I wanted to order a bottle of wine. Asked for samples. The waitress was not around for a while. I went to the bar, got 2 wine samples. They were not good. When I said that I do not like these and would like to try another wine sample, the barman told me that I have to think about the... More

Stopped into Embargo for dinner, decided to stay just for cocktails. Although the menu looked interesting, just wasn't what we were looking for that night. Cocktails were good but priced on the higher side. Bartenders were courteous but more business like. Lots of energy here. Band was playing and it seemed some regulars at the bar were enjoying themselves, perhaps... More
