    Literally everything about my dining experience at Stokes Adobe was exceptional. My cocktail was fantastic, service was attentive but not intrusive, and of course the food was amazing. My diver scallops were so flavorful, my husband loved his bolognese, and my mother in law said her cavatappi was “the best thing I’ve ever eaten”

    While I'm usually willing to splurge on a fancy dining experience, my recent visit to Strokes Adobe left me disappointed and hungry, despite the hefty bill. Spending $150 for dinner without drinks and leaving hungry is never a pleasant experience. The portion sizes, particularly the $40 for 3 bites worth of scallops, felt inadequate, leaving me and my partner unsatisfied on our anniversary. Disappointed but determined not to end our special evening on an empty stomach, we stopped by Safeway for a quick fix. Thankfully, we found fresh shrimp at a reasonable price (5$/LB!). After cooking them in garlic butter and seasoning with cayenne and Old Bay, we served them over white rice with avocado and tomato. It turned out to be a satisfying and fulfilling meal for under 15$, saving our anniversary! My recommendation for future diners at Strokes Adobe would be to prepare for the possibility of leaving hungry unless each person plans to order a starter and two entrees. While the ambiance and presentation may be appealing, the portion sizes may not match the price tag.

    Stokes Adobe never disappoints!!! Highly recommend the Duck Patè Toast, all the salads, the Cacio de Pepè and the Affogato. Salvatore is an exemplary server!

    I didn’t like any of the food ordered. Pretentious spices, oddly mixed ingradients.

    A beautiful restaurant in the old 1833 location. Lovely revived decor and lighting with great service. The menu offerings are limited but well done. I would have like more appetizer items to choose from, but I enjoyed every bite of the entree I got (bay scallops on the best pulled forbidden rice and compressed pineapple)!
