We had dinner in this restaurant, which specializes in sophisticated cocktails and small plates, with lots of offerings in each category. The food was surprisingly good and creative. We had the lobster bisque (delicious, even if too salty), an unusual and excellent version of shrimp tacos and fantastic house marinated hearts of artichokes. The service that day at least was a bit disorganized, but the hostess was lovely and so were the waiters. The decor of the place is modern and appealing too.

Embargo is a fun, upscale place on Main Street in Hyannis. it seems to be a happening place there and is a great place for martinis and appetizers. We sat at the bar and enjoyed the live music. Martinis and apps were both great - try the fried buffalo oysters and the lamb meatballs.

This is a place we frequent because we like tapas bars and Spanish food. There are many choices of small plates- we especially like the lamb and the escargot. Wine is reasonably priced and drinks are not meager. Good place for a quick bite or to linger over a bottle of wine as the tapas keep coming out....

Ate inside on Monday night - the atmosphere was great - food and server awesome. We had scallops in bacon, stuffed mushrooms and lamb lollipops. Everything was perfect. We will be back.

Visited here twice in one week because of the menu and service. Both were outstanding. This place serves small portions so you can try a lot of the menu. Really enjoyed the peanut noodles and also the crab cakes. Scallops wrapped in bacon and spring rolls were also good. Excellent tuna too. Wait staff was very good as was the drink menu.
