Embargo Restaurant Review

: This urban tapas restaurant and martini bar is the sort of spot made for meeting a group of friends with its very share-friendly menu. We recommend sticking with the simple dishes like the Wellfleet oysters (which are half price at happy hour), other raw bar items and the Kobe beef sliders. Many of the more creative dishes, like the strawberry and citrus cured scallops and saffron tempura vegetables, miss the mark both in flavor and quality of ingredients. The restaurant also makes its own infused vodkas, which are both tasty on the rocks or in one of the bar's many martinis. Every night after 10 p.m. the restaurant turns into a Cape-style nightclub with a DJ or live entertainment depending on the night of the week.
