Stoked Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
Great family friendly spot - menu is ambitious and varied - evry thg delicious - we went for dinner two nights in a row while on a mini-vacation in Cambridge . Try their sister restaurants too - Highspot and Blackwater Bakery - this restaurant group shld put Cambridge on the map for foodies.
We went to Stocked on a very busy Saturday night. Our waitress seemed to be annoyed that she was working. Just miserable. Then she took our order without writing it down (a pet peeve of mine). Guess what happened next? Our order came out wrong. That was after waiting for over an hour. Then our waitress blamed the kitchen for the wrong food. Incredible. Overall, I thought the place has potential. The food was great. We loved the calamari and fried brussel sprouts. Maybe our waitress was just having a bad night.
Went there for dinner before the 70.3. As you would expect the place was packed with people in town for the race. After almost an hour of waiting for our food the server brought the (fantastic) food and before we had a chance to say anything (we were planning on complaining about the wait) she told us they were comp'ing part of our meal since it was so long. Can't blame them for not being ready for a huge influx of people but can compliment them on how well they handled potentially upset customers. definitely will go back next race!
Our previous visits have been great, but it had been a while since our last visit. Our appetizer (crab dip) was very tepid. The waitress took it back only to return literally 2 minutes later with the same bowl (microwave much?) with the promise of more bread since our bread had the tepid dip spread on it (the bread didn't come until after we received our entrees). The pasta was extremely salty and dessert never arrived. We did enjoy the comedy show.
Let me start by saying that yelp has rarely ever steered me wrong...until now. I should have turned around when I walked in at 6:45pm on Sunday of Memorial Day weekend, and the place was fairly empty. The waitress sat us, and when we asked for kids' menus, she disappeared, and came back and said they were out of them...ummm... A few minutes later another group was seated at the table right next to us, and when they asked a different server for a kids' menu, she managed to find one immediately! If you have kids, the kids' menu is one of the worst I have seen. For $10, my kids got a small portion of parboiled reheated penne swimming in a lake of butter (the waitress had told us spaghetti since she had to recite the kids menu for us), a single orange wedge, some unsalted French fries, and a few thin churros. For what it's worth, we went to this restaurant's sister establishment the night before, and nearly everything there was underseasoned too. When we asked the waitress if they had chocolate milk for the kids, the waitress said yes but that it wouldn't be counted as the included beverage with the kids' menu. What?! I've never been someplace where they don't offer chocolate milk or milk for kids as part of the menu.
My husband had the meat lover's pizza, which was quite good (though just a touch undercooked) with plenty of toppings, and I had the flatiron steak, which was actually cooked to a perfect medium rare exactly as I ordered. Our food came out well after our kids had already finished their meals (we place their order about 4 minutes before ours). While we were waiting our waitress came out twice to say "Sorry, your food will be out soon - there were a lot of orders ahead of yours..." My husband and I looked at each other and almost laughed as the restaurant was not that crowded! Another couple that came in and was seated as we were finishing eating actually got up and left after they were sitting for 10 minutes with no service.
The food is outstanding, but the service what we would expect from a cool place like Stoked. Food: We had the excellent ribs and shrimp, the black and bleu pizza was crazy good - we also highly recommend the kale Caesar salad. Sadly the waitress seemed cranky and wasn't quite up to speed on their menu.
We were in Cambridge to visit the new Harriet Tubman underground RR center. Read about Stoked in Back Roads & Byways of Chesapeake Bay by Leslie Atkins. Loved the Wing, kale salad and chocolate Guinness cupcakes and green beer for Saint Patrick Day!🍀Great find.
I only marked all negative for dining experience because we did not have a dining experience. We made our reservation through open table but when we arrived there was not a table available and we would have to wait with everyone else. If the restaurant cannot honor open table reservations they should not be a member of open table. We count on open table and this restaurant is a bad reflection on their service.
Chicken wings and salads were great. Was hoping for a better pizza given their brick oven. Vegetables on veggie pizza were mostly zucchini and squash which are not good picks in my view. A bit mushy. Also pizza a bit undercooked and doughy. Maybe just a fluke but would be specific next time. Expected more artisan - like Ava's.
Great gastro pub/pizza/wing place. Energetic atmosphere. Fun beer & cocktail options too.
Not really sure they track the Open Table reservation system though. On arrival none of the hosts seemed to be aware of our reservation nor did we see any way for them to record it
It was jam packed on Friday night, actually too busy for proper service but that's to be expected when so many people are there. The wait staff was doing all they could - you can see them preparing meals and getting them out to tables asap. I had stopped by earlier in the week and had an exceptional dinner: salmon/mashed potatoes/ grilled asparagus. I highly recommend it! There's a good selection of food choices - fresh along with tasty sauces and their creative cocktails add a flair of fun. I've yet to order pizza - would be hard to do as long as the salmon is on the menu.
My party of 8 arrived at the restaurant to find that it was closed, despite taking our reservation days before, and even though their web site hours said they were open. It was embarrassing. I reached out to Stoked via email the next day, and have yet to hear a word back, much less an apology.
With a Valentine's Day reservation safely secured, we looked forward to an enjoyable romantic meal at Stoked, a restaurant we had visited previously and liked. Expectations rose when we were ushered to one of the quiet tables in the back. However somewhere between the order for drinks and settling on a food order, we noticed a very cold draft about 8 inches below the level of the table. Being on our third Victorian-era house, we are no strangers to drafts, so we tried to reposition ourselves to minimize the effects. No such luck. It was strong enough and cold enough that it affected our enjoyment of the meal.
Which was a shame given the obvious quality of the food and wine. We both ordered a Steak Diane that was perfectly cooked and came with a delicious wine reduction sauce, potatoes and asparagus. Moreover, our server, being made aware of our plight, could not have been more attentive. She even brought the manager by to express apologies for the discomfort. We probably could have shifted seats, but by this time the mood was lost. We packed up and made a beeline for the car heater.
This is a great restaurant for the area. But I think that we'll wait for warmer weather before going back.
I've booked many reservations in different cities through OpenTable, and this was easily the worst overall dining experience we have had.
If you do go here, stick with the wings and pizza. Avoid the meals or else hope that the person in the kitchen who prepares your meal is different than the person who prepared our meals. Also I hope you get a different waitress than we did.
