Food was great, prices are a little high---especially for alcohol/wine, but overall it is comparable with most other restaurants' pricing. Nice meal, fun ambiance and I enjoyed this place!

What a great place!!!! We
What a great place!!!! We are recommending this place to everyone! Without soup or salad, the portions filled out stomachs. Each dish was generous and delicious, and the goat cheese cheesecake was to die for!!! Good wine selections, can't wait to go back!

Great Food Even Better Service!!!
One of the better restaurants I have been to in Spokane. The food is well prepared. The portions are adequate and the service is amazing. I would suggest making reservations because it is a small restaurant and will fill up easy. Also, love the decor!!!

Celebrated our 30th anniversary. Michael, our waiter was very attentive and added nicely to our dinner experience. Salads were fantastic, mains good and the German chocolate cake was exceptional!
All in all a great dining experience and I would recommend without hesitation.

Gem in Spokane
A great space in a resurgent area of the city. Adjacent to the Montvale Hotel, (a great place to stay) in an historic building. Dishes are imaginative, staff are causal yet professional. Highly recommended!

Nothing much to look at from the outside but inside is nicely done. Food was great, very gracious wait staff. Will go back again if in Spokane.

It's on the top of my list
Scratch is at the top of my list for our nights out. We rarely splurge and head downtown, but we're never disappointed when we go to Scratch. They have fantastic food. While the meals I recommend are $20+, when you get what you ordered you know it was made right; with quality and care.

This restaurant doesn't appear much from the outside, however once you step inside, you feel they are serious about providing a world class experience.
They were ready for us at our reserved time, even had Ice cold water on our table when we arrived.
The menu was organized very well.
The wait staff was amazing and very friendly.

Loved the ambiance in this little hidden gem in downtown Spokane. I'm from Canada and wanted to find a nice place for dinner that was a little trendy, not stuffy and with a good vibe. I found it in Scratch. Odd name... soudned more like a poolhall than an upscale restaurant, but Scratch delivered on a number of fronts. Our waitress KayCee really made the difference being attentive but not intrusive, friendly but not fake, and knowlegable but not arrogant.
I ordered the Duck and it was cooked very well (not an easy task) while the others at the table had the Mint Lamb Rack and the Flatiron Steak. All three were very good, though the Duck took top honors. Well cooked, we presented.
All in all, I would go back for sure. Good spot!

Delicious Meeting Place!
Four of us attending a conference decided to meet at Scratch because of its close proximity to The Davenport. We were all impressed with the creative and freshly prepared selections. I had the Ahi Tuna Salad, delicious! Michael, our server, was incredibly helpful and amiable. He took personal interest in us and made excellent recommendations from the wine list and menu. Each of us left with wonderful memories of the evening.

Birthday dinner at Scratch
My daughter took me to Scratch, my first time there. I liked the decor, the ambience, the glass pour wines, and the menu. My lamb was better than her Osso Buco, the only reason I didn't give the food 5 stars. We had a great time and I'll start taking my friends there; it's a great find.
They don't do anything special just because it's a birthday.

Service and meal were incredible. Our experience from the minute we walked in the door was absolutely wonderful!

Wonderful food from beginning to the end. Wine is pricey by comparison but still a good selection. Duck and the NewYork strip special were cooked to perfection. The waiter was an older gentlemen and incredibly prompt and polite. Do yourself a favor and GO!

Loved the crab chowder!, also the stuffed mushroom was fabulous ! Oh and the bruschetta ... Yummy. The seafood trio was great (except the lemon risotto none of us enjoyed it) the steaks were perfect. Enjoyed the Gorgonzola barley risotto, uniquely flavored and really good. Finished off with creme brûlée. A grand evening, will be returning to scratch real soon!

We come to Scratch once a year from ND, on a girl trip. As always, the experience was great. Food amazing, and plating very very nice. Will come again

I come to Spokane often and this week was my first visit to Scratch and I have to say it was wonderful. From the service to the food everything was perfect. See you soon Scratch!

Our dining experience at Scratch was wonderful. The menu is imaginative; it was hard to choose an entree.

Scratch really wants to be a special restaurant - I think. It also seems to want to be casual. The wait staff is really good. The atmosphere is part of the confusion. The tables line a narrow walkway and are close to the entry. You can hear the conversation of the table next to you and sometimes it feels as though those next to you might join your conversation. The menu is limited but it's unclear if Scratch is a seafood, steakhouse or French restaurant. The wait staff is attentive like you find at a quality restaurant, but the menu veers from Bison burger to crab stuffed salmon. Not sure to whom this restaurant caters. Food is hit and miss like it's a compilation of recipes from a variety of chefs.

We had a great time with another couple at Scratch. I had the Hot Pot which is a seafood stew: spicy and wonderful. Good wine list with many reasonably priced offers. Other party members had crab crusted salmon (a bit dry), Osso Bucco and Ahi Tuna: everybody liked their choices. Only food critique: salads were "eh." Wait staff was quite attractive and friendly. There's a bar connected called Rain. We had an after dinner drink there; even though it is the same drink list it was nice to move. Scratch takes a lot of heat on other sites for the tables being too close and for being overpriced; I disagree with both critiques. It would be the perfect spot to have dinner before attending an event at the Fox Theater. Lots of convenient parking too.
