view web site ›'s insider take:

Located in a historic 1833 adobe house with thick plaster walls, quarry-tile floors, and wood-beamed ceilings, Stokes is the handsomest dining room in Monterey. Chef Brandon Miller's Mediterranean-style cooking leans primarily toward France and Italy with a daily menu that focuses on seasonal produce—organically grown, of course—and regional seafood. He cures his own salumi; when you see sausage on the menu, order it. In summer you might find duck prosciutto on melon, drizzled with a balsamic reduction, or fried green tomatoes with horseradish rémoulade. Typical entrées include duck breast with root vegetables and a tangy pomegranate sauce. From fall through spring, look for pasta with clams and sausages. At lunch, go for any of the pizzas from the wood-fired oven. Some dishes overreach, but in a town known for fish and chips, we applaud Stokes for taking some culinary risks. On a cold night, book a table by the fire in the lounge or Captain's room; otherwise, reserve one of the comfy booths in the newer, window-lined main dining room.

Open daily at 5:30 pm.
