Distinctive menu, distinctive flavors executed beautifully. When tired of the "normal" offerings in this town, go here for a real treat at affordable prices. A great value.

 (Portland)·Dined on November 25, 2016

The restaurant was pretty quiet as we walked in. The Festival of Lights was going on. As soon as that event ended, the restaurant was packed. The food was great, the location was ideal and the staff was extremely friendly. Had a wonderful evening.

Seems to be the recent reincarnation of Scratch, since checks still come with that name on them.

Only fair, unfortunately. Service is very relaxed in the mostly empty dining room. Extremely pleasant, but quite slow. Beer drinkers outside seem to get better attention. Food has potential, but offering 15 or so Mac and Cheese dishes is the easy way out. "Kobe" beef burger was served on a plain bun, with nothing else on it (I added cheese). Nothing. $16 says "Avoid Me". The soda was flat. Tighten things up and this could be a success.

Our meal was excellent, as was the service. The noise level was almost uncomfortably high until a loud party left. Perhaps some sound-absorbing floor and wall coverings would lower the decibel levels. Heat could have been set a little higher. All in all a very good experience!

 (Seattle)·Dined on October 17, 2015

Two of us ordered what was described by wait staff as grilled wild king salmon. It was probably salmon but otherwise not as described. It was served over mashed potatoes alongside runny mango salsa so the entire meal was a mushy wet mess. It was my birthday so didn't feel like making a scene but no one bothered to ask if it was okay when we didn't eat it. Also, no one offered to comp. dessert when they'd been told it was a birthday.

Needed a casual dinner with fresh food and this fit the bill. Good service and every item ordered was tasty. Modifications made for food allergies was not a problem. I had stopped in for lunch a couple of days before, and it was perfect. Particularly found the bruschetta and calamari excellent at lunch. I had no hesitation in returning for dinner...really enjoyed the Caesar salad, as well as sweet potato fries.

Scratch Coeur d'Alene never disappoints. We had an incredible lunch with some outstanding craft beers from The Filling Station, which is connected to the restaurant. The Kobe beef burger is the best burger in town! You have to try the calamari!! I've had calamari all over the Pacific Coast and nothing even comes close to Chef Rex' recipe; tender and tasty! Best restaurant in town!
Our servers were very friendly and helpful. We always have a great time and good food at Scratch!

With an 8 and 10 yr old in tow, we were looking for a nice meal to top off 10 day NW vacation. Scratch exceeded all expectations as it was our best meal in three states. From the service, wine list, location, to the varied and creative food options, we give it five stars and will make sure we dine there on our next Spokane visit.

Ate at this "made from scratch" restaurant 3 times during our 5 day stay in Coeur D'alene and can easily say it was the best restaurant we tried. Had breakfast first, then dinner two different nights. Not a fancy spot, but the food is outstanding. Had the Halibut, cheese ravioli with spring vegetables, calamari, soup, salad, everything we tried was excellent, and the prices are very reasonable. Skip the more well known restaurants in CDA and try this one, the food will not disappoint.

We love Scratch! Right on Sherman means you are right in the heart of downtown Coeur d'Alene. You can get a seat by the window and watch all the action as you dine on some great entres. I love their signature spinach salad with the pears. We bring our out of town guests here to show off our upscale dining here in town.

Scratch is one of my "go to" restaurants in Coeur d'Alene. I've been a number of times and have never been disappointed. It has a comfortable, bistro-like, feel and the food excellent. The service has been slow on occasion, but never to a point that it bothers you. I plan to dine here often.

Food, service, ambiance were all excellent. Only reason "Overall" not a 5 star was the portion of halibut served. It could not have been more than 3 oz--the smallest we have ever been served.

I have eaten the best soup of my life at Scratch (the sweet potato bisque) and had the best toasted cheese sandwich of my life there also. Everything else is always great. My friend drives over from Spokane and Scratch is where we celebrate our birthdays.

Really was happy with the service. Waitress was relaxed and attentive . I would have liked more scallops and prawns than just 2 a piece. I had the Mac and Cheese, but 2 scallops and 2 prawns just didn't make it as far as volume for the price

Everything my wife and ordered was excellent. Bruschetta was amazing, I had a Kobe burger with balsamic onions and goat cheese it was excellent. My wife enjoyed fish tacos all had great flavor. Plates were full. Nice atmosphere service was attentive but not constantly interrupting which is how I like it.

We live in Spokane and prefer Scratch Coeur d'Alene to its Spokane "sister". We prefer the menu and the atmosphere to that of Spokane's Scratch. The food is consistently good, and we go there if we visit coeur d'Alene. The adult Mac 'n heese is fabulous.
