Embargo Restaurant Review

: This urban tapas restaurant and martini bar is the sort of spot made for meeting up with friends, thanks to a very share-friendly menu. We recommend sticking with simple dishes like the Wellfleet oysters, other raw bar items and the Kobe beef sliders or Serrano ham. Some of the more creative items can miss the mark. The sushi menu, available Wednesday through Saturday, offers several fresh fish and vegetarian selections. The restaurant also makes its own infused vodkas, which are tasty on the rocks or in one of the bar's many martinis. One of the few restaurants in the region open past midnight, Embargo becomes a "place to be" after 10 p.m. with a DJ or live entertainment depending on the night of the week.
