Our server was AWESOME! (Travis)
Food was really top notch! The only thing we were not too crazy about were our desserts, but other than that we would ALL come back again! We had all 3 creme brulee options, key limes pies and ice cream.
Food, drinks ambiance, host and servers were just excellent!
Another awesome meal at Embargo. It remains one of the best places on Main Street.
We had a wonderful time celebrating our wedding anniversary! Such a fantastic place! We didn't want to leave! It was like a party. Great food, excellent service. Everything was awesome!!
We went out for tapas and the food quality and service was good. It was a little hard to predict how much food we were ordering due to the varying sizes of each dish - for example the gambas al ajillo only had 4 medium shrimp, but the buffalo oysters were about a dozen.
Food was very good, especially the lamb lollipops, they were perfect.
While we enjoyed food very much the host was very unhelpful. We did arrive early and he told us to come back since it was busy. When we did come back he then said they were too busy to seat us. What is the point of baking a reservation if the host will just decide we are not to be seated.
Sinner before a concert
Fun, friendly, good and reasonable - especially during happhour!
Delicious tapas -we had stuffed mushrooms, eggplant parm, lamb lollipops, pan seared scallops all at half price from 4:30-6:30 — even on Saturday Fun way to dine.
Older as well as younger crowd, all excited for karaoke night Wednesday. Food was delicious! Especially loved the mashed potatoes and the raspberry creme brulee.
Had the tapas menu and all choices were excellent. The speciality drinks were excellent. Went back the next night for drinks. The restaurant has a parking lot behind the building. Would definitely recommend.
Food and service were good. Liked that they took reservations
This is our favorite restaurant on the Cape. We make sure to stop in when we are in the area and are never disappointed.
Had John... made our night
Excellent food. Nice outdoor seating area. The inside was too loud for me, but that’s personal preference.
Waitstaff were great and the food was good. It was extremely noisy, especially when we were seated next to a large table of people who were yelling! We were moved to a table in a quieter spot which was a bit better.
We went to have drinks at the bar before dinner and ended up staying at the bar instead of grabbing a table. Dave the bartender was awesome! Very personable. We asked for 5 of the best topaz and we got 5 awesome topaz! Great food, great atmosphere. Thank you guys for a great evening.
This resturant was excellent. The food was amazing. The drinks are awesome. I will be back for sure
Awesome experience. Great cocktails, martinis and good. Will come back again!
We had 12 different tapas items at our table and everyone of them was fantastic
celebrated a special occasion. We had to Change the reservation three different times and every time I called on three different occasions I got Scott twice and then another gentleman and each were very nice and accommodating for our large party of 14! food was great service was spectacular and we would definitely come back!
Wonderful variety for our group of eight people. Everyone enjoyed themselves
We eat here at least twice a month. The tapas are amazing and the service outstanding. They take reservations now, which is great because they are always busy.
Great service, excellent food, decent prices. It’s a hangout for the younger crowd and by 8 or so, it gets crowded and noisy, which we knew, and we chose an early dinner time (6). The staff could not be more friendly. Great eating spot, just be warned, it’s a big, crowded bar space with live music once it gets cranked up later in the evenings!
Over the years we have dined at Embargo (and its predecessor) a great deal. Due to Covid we did not dine there at all last year. Last night was our first trip of the summer. Over the years, the kitchen and staff never seemed to have the right rhythm when it came to getting orders out in a timely fashion. Last night they totally nailed it and we had a blast without any of the residual anxiety of when those last two or three plates of food were going to emerge from the kitchen. Very efficient, our server was excellent (thanks Michelle), and the food was delicous.
The Tapas are amazingly delicious, any things you choose is in a good portion, great presentation, any martinis are delicious
staff was wonderful. we were a table of 4 and somehow the table magically flipped, probably an earthquake of some sort. it definitely, most certainly had nothing to do with our alcohol intake. martini glasses shattered and we were soaked with alcohol and the staff could not have been cooler about it. they cleaned it up, made sure we were ok and brought us new drinks and gave us fresh drinks. the waitress was so nice and didn’t make us feel bad and deservingly teased us for the rest of the night 😂 we loved it and will definitely be back!
It was Great and would go back. The food was awesome, servers attentive,
Great experience! Waitstaff was super attentive, awesome atmosphere.
We got dinner at embargo before seeing a show at the cape cod melody tent. Our server Travis was AWESOME! Attentive and helped us make sure we could leave on time to make it to our show. There was a lovely live jazz band playing and we enjoyed our food very much, particularly the sliders and the flatbread pizza. The tapas were larger than we were anticipating, we ordered four for our group of two people and probably would have been fine with two or three. We will definitely come back again when we aren’t rushing and have more time to enjoy.
Loved everything about this place but the noise level. The food was amazing and the service was wonderful. Hope to return very soon.
Loved the food and the choices. Fun night for all
The good. Food was excellent. Very tasty and delicious. Drinks were excellent could actually taste the alcohol
The bad. On the high pricey side relative to the amount you get
The ugly (very ugly). Once dancing started way past The stated time, immediately drinks were spilled on the floor and one big sticky mess. Terrible. Drinks are allowed on the dance floor so there you go. The DJ had zero personality and the music selection had no variety All the same.
Great menu and fun atmosphere! Came for my husband’s birthday with a group of 7, all with different dietary needs. Everyone wan happy with the plates they ordered. Cocktail menu is extensive and service was excellent! Definitely would go back!!
Excellent food quality !
Had crab cake, baked clams,eggplant parm, coconut shrimp all great!
Outstanding food for a great price. The drinks were delicious, too. Sitting in Embargo feels like you’ve been transported to NYC or Boston - it’s a very hip restaurant with its house music and ambiance. This is a great restaurant for a date and I’ll definitely be returning again when visiting the Cape!
The service was very friendly and super fast despite the restaurant being really busy. The food was delicious and came out quickly! All of the flavors were amazing and well balanced. You’ll want to try all of the cocktails because their bartenders are top notch.
We live Embargo and all the people that work there. From the hostess that greets you to the waitstaff that brings your food. We have to mention our fabulous waiter Blake…Blake is friendly, attentive and professional. We eat at Embargo every Tuesday night for 1/2 price tapas. It’s our favorite night of the week!!! ~Debbie and Ted
