We've been to Stoked several times and have recommended it to many friends. The food is usually great along with the service at a reasonable price. Desserts were fantastic, especially the rice pudding. It is really loud, so I wouldn't recommend it for a serious conversation or romantic date setting.
We were surprised by the drastic reduction in the menu choices, especially the elimination of risotto balls from the appetizer menu. I'm not sure why the change. And we were also disappointed to see that the small group private dining room has been converted into an arcade. Doesn't seem to fit the atmosphere that we experienced prior. I'm not sure if we'll be back as often now for dates, but it is a nicer option for including the kids.

Food is good. Service very good. Two complaints: 1) the "special of the day" pizza that was ordered did not include all the ingredients that were advertised. 2) This place is LOUD. So much so that we all had to pretty much yell to have a conversation. Might I suggest that a sound engineering company be consulted to install some soft surfaces and/or acoustic panels.

always come here when i am in town i love the wings and the pizza. everything is always good and they have a menu that has something for everyone. great beers and great service. my only complaint is that they were out of bone-in wings at 530pm on a saturday. we ended up getting boneless instead but it wasn't the same. other than that we had a great time.

Went for dinner with my husband for my birthday. Drove from Salisbury for a change of scenery. Service went from great to a crawl. Many details could be added to this review, however I will just say....poor planning for staff when you know you have two large party events on your books. Remember your two tops are just as important as the 25 guest party you knew were coming.

Stop on a Sunday night on the way home from the beach. Ordered the shrimp appetizer and it was very good, crispy shrimp with a sweet and spicy glaze. My husband had the wings. Three full wings, hot sauce was tasty and blue cheese dressing was one of the best I'm ever had out. I had the flat iron steak with fries and spinach. Very good, steak was cooked perfectly.

Was Ironman weekend and I think the kitchen got overwhelmed. Chicken came raw, steak overdone, and pizza oven was not working adequately so our pizza had to be thrown out and redone. Management was very good about all the issues but was a little disappointing. Still would give them another shot.

First, it's loud. By design. Our pizza was great. Amazing what a difference quality pepperoni can make! And the service was outstanding. Our waiter made sure everything was OK, but was never intrusive. The restaurant was slammed that night due to an Ironman event, but our waiter was on top of everything.

This is the second time here. It’s as if you had a different chef than last time. The food was much better last time but both times the food was way too salty and I could not eat and the desert we came for was no longer on the menu. When you pay $50 a person in Cambridge I think the food should be better. I had a tiny piece of salmon. It was good but vet small. My friends pirk chip was good but my wife’s crab cakes were salty. I’ll probably give them another shot but only one.

Overall, I really liked Stoked. It was a fun, festive environment. The food was very good. We were greeted by a very friendly hostess and the bartenders were attentive as we got drinks before our table was ready. The only downer on the evening was the woman serving us. She was very slow, not very knowledgeable about the menu and repeatedly forgot about things we ordered. I do not believe she is indicative of the rest of the staff. I think it was just luck of the draw for us and would be surprised if she lasts very long there. I would definitely recommend Stoked and if I find myself in Cambridge again, I would be happy to go back.

The food was very good! Our table was ready for us and the restaurant was packed with a waiting line. I think the kitchen and waitress were overwhelmed. The sauce for our wings arrived after wings had been eaten. There was a long wait- half hour plus after appetizers until entrees arrived. After we had been waiting for our entrees for 30 plus minutes our waitress informed me that stoked was out of crab cakes- what I had ordered. Disspointing but it was strange to be told that almost an hour after I had ordered. I then ordered salmon which I had to send back twice to be cooked more since it was on the raw side. Even after all these mishaps I still enjoyed the food and evening!

Mixed experience. We were visiting Cambridge and had looked forward to going to Stoked again as we have done previously. But the food and wine were not as good as before. The food -- we each had the wild salmon. We were pleased that Stoked offers wild salmon, but the salmon was not prepared as well as at Stoked's affiliate restaurant, High Spot. The waitress was excellent, very helpful and very thoughtful. She even was able to have the music-speaker system turned down a couple of notches because it was very loud, right behind my wife's head. Now, about the wine ... the waitress let me sample two types of red wines. Unfortunately, both were not very good. Again, I think this also has gone downhill from our previous visits to Stoked. So, instead, I drank a beer, and that was fine. (By the way, we actually ate at Stoked on Tuesday, Nov. 14, not Monday. I made the reservation online for Monday night and received an email confirmation. But when we arrived at Stoked, we found that it was not open on Monday nights for the season. So we went to the High Spot instead.)

We made our OT reservation for Stoked and it went through and was confirmed. However when we arrived (the restaurant looked open/busy), we were told they were actually closed for a private party. While this was a bit disappointing (because we obviously like Stoked), they did refer us to their sister-restaurant, The High Spot and told us if we dined there we would receive 10% off our bill. Since we also like THS, we went there. They did not seem aware of the private party/closure at Stoked, however they were very accommodating to us and quickly got us a table. We had a fine dinner and did receive the 10% discount (we told the hostess about it when we arrived). I would've preferred we'd been notified prior about Stoked being closed (after all, the app DID ask for my phone number), but overall we were pleased with how they responded, and enjoyed our dinner. Perhaps in the future they could find a way to notify the OT app (or keep a close eye on reservations and make sure they notify any potential diners) about the private event and closure.

Coming back from Chincoteague and we were looking for someplace to eat in Cambridge. So, so, so glad we found Stoked! The food was incredible and the vibe hip. Would seriously make the drive from Fairfax Country, VA just to eat here. Our server, Cammie, was fabulous as was their Maryland Crab Soup, Risotto Balls, Meatball Sub, you name it. Oh, and the dessert was to die for! Only reason this wasn't all 5's review was because the bar service was a little slow.

Don't be fooled by the menu on their website. Went for a specific dish still in the website we've eaten here in the past and it's no longer available. Pizza crust was soggy. Wings are expensive - 4 for $10 - and just okay.

The service was horrible. We waited 15 mins before a server came by after we were seated and that was only after I asked her if she was our server. After she finally took our order, we got 1 of 2 of our appetizers, she never brought our second round of drinks, our other appetizer, or our entrees. None of these were put in the system. We cancelled our order and left. We were there for 1 1/2 hours without our meal. And had we not asked her about our many dishes and drinks that never came we would have continued to sit there. There is absolutely no checking in with the guests to see if anything else was needed. We had to come back to our hotel and order room service.

Stoked is so much more than a pizza place but that's why we keep going back every time we visit the Cambridge area. They have a great beer selection and the best pizza in the area. Smells a little smokey when you first walk in but then you realize that's the wood burning brick pizza oven. Real wood fired ovens are the only way a true pizza dough should be baked and the taste will prove it. Service is usually as great as the food. Our server was training a new server and was a little slow as a result.
