Embrujo Flamenco reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Group of four, ordered tapas
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 5/17/2013
    Group of four, ordered tapas and Bomba paella to share. Tapas were well spaced out and absolutely fantastic. Ordered: serrano jam with olives and manchego, garlic shrimp, garlic mushrooms, patatas bravas, baked goat cheese with honey, fried squid with aliolo, dates wrapped in bacon, and duck confit with pears. Everything incredible and unique - it was hard to pick winners...though the bacon wrapped dates were quite possibly the best thing ever (very sweet though, I could eat them for dessert!). Paella was cooked to perfection and bursting with so much flavour and seafood. Fflamenco show made the night extra special. Our server was wonderful and they were able to easily accommodate a gluten allergy (corn tortillas instead of bread)!

    Disappointed
    Dined on 5/10/2013
    my girlfriend and I were disappointed! a big pan of rice and mushroom made with frozen peas arrived with little attention to presentation. Nothing special about it, taste and look was too mediocre, and too overpriced $49.! Ditto with the salad, which was slices of beats sprinkled with crushed walnut and cheese. Wine seemed to have been watered downed. Ambience was alright. Flaminco dance was the saving grace of the $95. Dinner for two, accompanied by live guitar. But even that was missing vocals, (only on Saturdays). I don't want to be mean or unnecessarily harsh, but honestly this was a waste of our time and money. Save yourself the aggrevation and go somewhere else. I will be surprised if they stay in business for too long.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 4/19/2013
    The tapas were great, with the patatas bravas standing out as perhaps the best I have had in memory. Mushrooms and shrimp were also hits. The paella was simply terrific - each item tasting terrific on its own and the rice base was very tasty and cooked perfectly. The wine we selected (the recommendation that night, strangely) was not available but we were offered a better bottle at the same price which was excellent and appreciated. The entertainment was lively and the atmosphere quite comfortable and homey. A great spot which exceeded our expectations and we will be back again soon.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 3/1/2013
    First time at this restaurant. I had heard the paella was very good. We ordered the seafood paella with shrimp, calamari, muscles and chorizo. It was very tasty and I would definitely go back. While waiting for the paella, we did have some tapas and sangria. The sangria was very good. The tapas were a bit overpriced, but I guess that's how most tapas places are. Overall, a good food experience. The staff were very friendly.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012

    The Flamenco show on the weekends is a must. Check with the restaurant on the when it's scheduled and reserve accordingly. Their stuffed red peppers, cod croquettes, spanish tortilla and freshly made strawberry lemonade is to die for. I was dissapointed by the flan but i've heard i was on an off-day and normally it's pretty good. Their bread however is so so, surprising given their taste is phenomenal on everything else. The staff is very nice.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008

    I took advantage of Winterlicious and went with friends. The food was delicious and the menu options for Winterlicious were well chosen. The neighboring table had scrumptious looking empanadas for their appetizer and even the entrée "special of the day" posted on the blackboard near out table sounded equally delicious. My experience makes me want to go back soon and sample items from their regular menu.

    Went with a bunch of friends as part of Winterlicious experience and we were not disappointed. The choices for set menu were lovely, something for everyone, and our server was great at explaining the dishes and the drinks. She made few suggestions and the drinks and food turned out great. My only down point was that they changed one of the dessert in the set menu, there was no chocolate custard. The substitute dessert was good as well but this is just me, I like to finish my dinner with something chocolatey. Overall - lovely little place, very good food, very nice selection of drinks. So definitely - recommend!

    A Flamenco group performs a few times a week. When we went for dinner, there was a dancer, but from what I gather, there is usually just the singer and the guitarist. The performances were so intense, that I could not eat through them. Great experiance. The food is nothing special, but I liked how they mixed sweet (fruit) with the salty main dish.

    After a mix-up about where we are supposed to be seated (they tried to sit us next to the door where it's drafty), the dinner went well. The ambiance was great and the flamenco dance was one-of-a-kind. The food portions was a little on the skimpy side but they were tasty.

    The food was amazing. The size of the restaurant was great - it was small enough to make dinner an intimate affiar. An added bonus was the Flamenco show which was great fun. This is the second time we have gone there for Winterlicious. Last year they had tapas dishes which we really liked. Though that being said - the food this year (a plated method) was still extremely good.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 1/6/2013
    A couple friends and I went for dinner - granted it was a Sunday evening - but we were one of the only tables there, perhaps this was the reason the 'shows' of dancers were not very passionate, the guitarist was talented but kept his jacket on like he was ready to leave right after. The dancer didn't put much into her dance, a lot of hand twirling. When we arrived no one really said hi because one of our guests were there, just stood in the corner. The food portions are very much tapas, we needed to spend around $200 to feel fed and our Paella, note it was the mushroom one not seafood, was so bland. A real shame, I heard so many things about this place, I guess we just picked the wrong night to try it and the staff weren't in the mood.

    Very good food and ambiance. Food and drinks definitely over-priced for this small basic restaurant. Separate charge for their short flamenco show? Why am I over-paying for food if I'm also paying for the show???

    We went on a Saturday night with a group of 8 friends in total. Food was very tasty and freshly prepared. Flamenco show was entertaining, but might be hard to see depending where you are seated and how busy it is that day. The dancer and musicians performed very passionately. A bit pricey, but the overall experience was very good.

    We attended this restaurant on a travelzoo coupon. The minute the server discovered we had a coupon, the atmospher and her attitude changed. It didn't matter that we ordered a nice bottle of wine and specialty coffees.It's unfortunate because my partner is a foodie and we were disappointed by this poor attitude. It set the tone for the evening. We felt like second class citizens. My partner and I make a good living and would have considered returning if we felt we were treated properly. Food was ok, atmosphere was nice. I'm saddened by theReception we received. I was looking forward to many date nights here and bringing friends to this quaint place. I was happy with booking through open table. VeryConvenient.

    Extremely friendly service, good food, fun (although short!) entertainment (flamenco dancing and music). Only complaint is that the food was not well-paced: our tapas-style meal was brought out one dish on top of the other, so that we had too much food on the small table at once.

    My wife and I went to Enbrujo with another couple, and we definitely enjoyed the food, service and ambiance, though it was very expensive for what you got. The size of the tapas and mains are very small for the price. We order 5 tapas and 1 paella and needed to order 4 more tapas because we were still very hungry. Its enjoyable, though pricey and there are far better restuarants for the price.

    My husband, our toddler son, and I visited to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We were lucky to have visited on a night where we were entertained by the beautiful flamenco dancer and Spanish guitar player. My husband & I must have eaten a dozen different tapas off the menu (one was a special of the day - the lemon chicken), and everything was very good. I love tapas, and this may be one of my top 5 tapas restaurant. When we visit Canada again, we will definitely pay a visit here again.

    We chose from the Summerlicious dinner menu, picking 2 different tapas items each for our main course. On the whole,they were quite tasty but a bit too salty. As they are quite substantial in size, the ideal way to expereince this restaurant is in a group of 3 or more, so you can try a little of everything. Be aware there is a minimum charge of $33 Thursday - Sunday for dinners to cover the entertainmnet (not to our taste but many seemed to enjoy it). The space needed for the stage means tables are small and close together, and bench seating is bolt upright. Service was friendly but spotty, with a reminder needed to bring one tapas item and a wrong dessert exchanged. Worth a visit if you want to try tapas, but we wouldn't return too often.

    The service was really quick in the first hour as they quickly brought out most of the tapas we ordered. It slowed down quite a bit (final tapas, dessert, coffee) once the restaurant filled up. Only downside was that it took a long time to get anyone's attention when we were ready for the bill. Great atmosphere and food, along with an amazing performance. I'd definitely return!
