    Scratch is a very nice restaurant with a lovely decor and exceptional staff. My meal was very good and the lamb was cooked perfectly with amazing seasoning and flavors. Some of the best lamb I have ever eaten; however, I opted out of the pomodoro sauce. My server was superb, knowledgable and attentive. I noticed that in all of the wait staff and the tables around me. As for the food I started with a generous sized caesar salad; however, the romaine was still wet and the dressing was overly tart with very little flavor. Scratch is a nice place and worthy of a visit with quite a number of entre selections.

    Scratch is a great restaurant--true farm to fork. They have a wide selection which will delight vegans and meat lovers. Their cocktails are incredible and the service is second to none

    We searched online for the best brunch in the OKC area. I am so glad we chose Scratch for our anniversary celebration. The menu selection for breakfast was vast and we had a hard time choosing between dishes. Both items were excellent, we had the lemon poppy seed pancakes and migas. Atmosphere included live music and the service was excellent. Great job, thank you for an amazing breakfast!

    I have been here for dinner twice and Brunch once. First, I really like the mixologist bar. You have to try at least 1 mixed drink. They also have a good beer selection. They have a large social table behind the bar that I have sat at twice to eat (open seating) as I did not have a reservation. The food menu has things I have never seen and I have had the fish and steak and both were excellent. It gets a little busy on the weekends so it's best to make reservations.

    This was my first time at this place. I was pleasantly surprised. The food was great and the service was amazing! The prices were about what I would expect for such well prepared and flavorful food. Scratch is on my go again list.

    We stopped here for lunch and really enjoyed it a lot. I thought it sounded and looked good but was even better than expected. Great food and service.

    Our first visit to Scratch was very good. We took our daughter and friends this time and the food was very disappointing. Onion soup was fair at best. Mac and cheese, doughy and undercooked - our daughter is a high profile chef in Los Angeles. Flank steak sandwich was so full of other items, that it was messy and overpowered by ingredients other than steak. Overall, the food was not good. However, service and drinks were excellent.

    Everything about Scratch was wonderful! The atmosphere was great, our server was extremely personable and knowledgable, and the food was amazing! We ordered what our server recommended- the chicken sandwich and the pork tenderloin. both were phenomenal. We also had a side of Mac & Cheese that was different but great and the Spinach and Artichoke dip- spicy but excellent! Without a doubt top 3 restaurants in Norman, love that everything is local as well! We need more places like this!

    Made reservations yet unaware when we arrived. Appears they transfer the electronic reservations to paper. We were seated promptly and after several people were served before us that arrived after us, we contacted the hostess. The wait person said no one told her we had been seated. :(. We ordered the French Onion soup but it is far from the traditional version and should state so in the menu. We then ordered our entrees, Salmon and Prosciutto Chicken. Both were excellent but they don't come with any sides. Again, it is not apparent in the menu so the wait person should walk you through that. Soup x two and two entrees (no sides) was over $50. We will try again someday as the entrees were very good, only next time we will be the wiser.

    Very noisy. The night we were there they were extremely busy. It took an hour to get our food and the steak was cold when it arrived. Would not return to this restaurant. Also when we got there they told us they didn't take reservations and we would have a 20 minute wait. I told them I had made reservations on open table and they did find us a table before the 20 minutes.

    We reserved a table for 4 for a date night and were not impressed to start that we still had to wait 30 minutes for our table. We sat in the bar and ordered a drink which took forever to get and was way overpriced for the size of the drinks. The other couple were were with was very disappointed as well with their drinks and the amount of time it took to order and receive them. There is no music in the restaurant just peoples conversations. The food was okay not great and again overpriced for what you receive. We ordered steaks and the lamb with fries and Mac abd cheese, other couple ordered the au gratin potatoes and did not care for them they were more of a mushroom soup potato caserole thing. We probably won't revisit this place.

    Waited a little long for a table, lady went to set table up and returned 2 minutes later we were surprised when we got sat that there was only two other couples in the restaurant and we sat right next to them. The service from that point on was nice, food was really thought out and great taste. Lacking Ambience unless you like the cold warehouse look..

    We went for Sunday Brunch and it was outstanding! The tenderloin eggs Benedict could not have been better, and the blue corn migas were great. The "side of fruit" was a generous portion of fresh mixed fruit including raspberries and blackberries...the scored concrete floors make it a little loud, but it has a good energy and the food and service was awesome. Can't wait to go back!
