Situated in historic downtown Cambridge, Stoked offers artisanal pizza baked in a wood-fired stove, as well as other tasty fare. Owner and chef Patrick Fanning has created a comfortable setting with good food that features chalkboards on the walls with menu items. Guests can begin their dining experience with an appetizer of shrimp and grits or mozzarella sticks. Stoked offers entrées like pasta primavera, jumbo shrimp and crab cake. Paninis, chicken tenders and spaghetti are also on the menu.
Stoked has a relaxed environment that's family friendly. It has a full bar, but also offers non-alcoholic beverages like craft fair trade ginger beer, blueberry soda and several Mighty Leaf Tea options.
Great artisan pizzas. Server never asked us about desert or coffee
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.
Great food and service, but uncomfortable chairs.
One of our favorites! Great food and ambiance every time!
Lady waiting on us was really sweet and attentive.Food was delicious and fairly priced.
Good food served in a lively atmosphere by great servers
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!
Absolutely enjoyed ourselves. Didn't feel rushed, the GM was amazing, our server was spectacular! Can't wait to go back!
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.)
Terrible service. It took 30 min to get all four drinks which came one at a time ten min apart
I've been there for lunch, but this was dinner with a few friends and it's waaaaay too noisy for good conversation.
Food and presentation was great. Menu hard to understand.
Best crab dip I EVER had (and I lived in Maryland from 1992-2008!). Service was friendly and great!
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.
