It was a great menu with tons of options from salads to cold and hot tapas. We are way too much and loved every minute of it. Great place.

Unfortunately, I have been here before and the food was great…this time I was very disappointed. Got three tapas. All were extremely tiny, but actually more expensive than full size appetizers at other local restaurants. Food was not even tasty. Normally I’m happy to pay more for delicious food. Not the case. Drinks were very weak.

The lobster Mac and cheese and chicken and waffle were tasty! But my mussels were not good, some did not open or barely opened. They should have not been served. Also could not get a Mockstail since they are only seasonal?

Embargo food was very good, particularly liked the beef sliders. Nice for tapas dishes and a decent wine list.

The food was fantastic. Had the oysters, burrata and tomato salad for starters. Then had the mussels (delicious - you use the broth over a pasta it was so good) / portion size was also great. The scallops with coconut rice was very flavorful and the scallops were cooked perfectly, and the braised pork sliders were really good. Our server was friendly and the rest of the serving staff were attentive and energetic. Definitely coming back again!

Excellent dinner right near our hotel. Duck and fig flatbread… delicious! House made hummus and tabouli, very good. Mexican street corn, escargot and baked littlenecks were all very good. The clams were very cheesy, so you may or may not like that. Creme brûlée was good, but not the best of all time. Would definitely eat here again!

Food was great as was the drink selection. Service was spotty though. We ordered a bottle of wine and the server came back 15 mins later to tell us they didn’t have it so we ordered something else that took another 10 mins to get. Just felt forgotten by the staff. Been here before and the service was awesome so maybe they were just training a new guy? Still would come back here.

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!

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.

Our first time here we were going to a concert at the Melody Tent . Joined my sister and brother-in-law sharing a bottle of wine and 1/2 price tapas . Our waiter was very entertaining and attentive. Every plate was a treat, well prepared and delicious. My only complaint was that the volume of the music was a bit loud making conversation a little difficult. Will go back for sure!

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.

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.
