Music being a bit too loud, the terrasse is the place to dine. Hyper friendly service, food arrives quickly. Scallops are delicious, oysters great. Pommes Frittes are rich in garlic and cheese. Good place!

My wife and I love great tapas and we were optimistic about trying Embargo. Unfortunately, it comes up short on so many levels. The tapas, in truth, were really fine - I'd say average in terms of taste - and the bacon wrapped shrimp and...More

Had tapas at the bar for Happy Hour. A terrific way to try many items as they are half price from 4:30 to 6:00. Really liked the broiled scallops. The bartenders are friendly and fun!

I don't know if they're open that early but it doesn't seem like it would be a problem although the atmosphere is pretty "clubby".
