    I decided to check out this place out for a special dinner with my brother. The restaurant is beautiful. The bar is beautiful, the vibe is fancy yet relaxed. Everything was immaculate. The entrées are very small. For example the Wagyu steak for $55 dollars comes with almost no sides it’s just the meat. My duck was amazing but it was just the piece of meat. The pasta wonderful but also a small serving. Our bill was $300 for 3 entrees, a few drinks and dessert. I would go back to get a drink but not for a full meal. The vibe is beautiful though!

    Excellent experience overall. Great service. Our waitress Megan was friendly, informed about the menu, and upbeat. The ahi tuna appetizer is amazing. The wild mushroom pasta is delicious but a small portion for the price. The crispy potato appetizer is very yummy but we thought there was too much sauce on the bottom of the bowl, it overpowered the potatoes. Tasty and unique cocktails. The atmosphere is upscale yet cozy.

    We started with the Ahi Tuna Crudo ($26.00 -- pickled beech mushrooms, mache lettuce, puffed rice, Himalayan black truffle, caesar aioli). The puffed rice was missing which would have added texture. The black truffle was totally superfluous. Overall, interesting flavors, but too much going on tastewise. The Australian Wagyu Bavette Steak ($52.00 -- 7 oz steak, romanesco, maitake mushroom, celery root & horseradish purée, sauce Bordelaise) was okay but some of the meat was not tender. It was ordered medium rare. The Seared Alaskan Halibut ($42.00) was dry. The service and ambience were excellent. However, at these prices, it did not hit the mark.

    Food was really good. Service was also. I thought the prices were a bit too high so the value was not there. The bread was also very good but $8 for four pieces of bread was out of line. I would probably eat there again but not really soon.

    Hello it was a good experience. For the price though there was very little food. There were only 2 types of food, and very small portions of each. We had to order dessert to help fill the void.

    We met family and friends for a dinner before a show. The ambience is sophisticated & calm, beautiful rooms, everything is California casual and really lovely. The service was attentive without being pretentious. The food was beautifully presented and delicious. The Australian wagyu beef was exceptional and the fish and chicken dishes were very good. Overall it was a great experience and good value for a special evening.

    Food portions are small and expensive, however tasted good. Menu is somewhat limited, but creative. Sat in the balcony and diners next to us were very noisy and obnoxious - could not hear our own conversations at our table which was a bit annoying. Server was excellent and made great suggestions to choose from.

    The starters and mains were delicious, but the bread pudding was not good at all. The lighting was quite dim and the older individuals in our party had to use the flashlights on their phones to read it. Other than that, it was wonderful and our server, as well as the staff, were great.

    I would highly recommend Stokes Adobe for a special meal while visiting Monterey. Located in the historic district of Monetrey in a beautifully restored adobe home, this restaurant is fit for foodies, anyone celebrating a special occasion, or diners seeking an excellent meal in a cozy, gorgeous setting. The outdoor area is great for a drink before dinner.

    My friend and I have eaten dinner at Stokes a few times. We have always liked the food and the service. We decided to try Stokes for lunch. Service was wonderful. Staff and servers are super friendly. However the lunch menu only offered about 7 choices. My friend studied and studied her meal options and finally settled on a burger, but honestly that's not why we wanted to eat at Stokes. The lunch menu is too small. The food is delicious. Just be prepared for limited options.
