The service was absolutely excellent, including finding a bottle of wine that is listed on the restaurant website but was not on the menu. The food entrees were very good. The breadsticks were over baked. The prices are a bit high but the quality of the food was good. The ambience is very nice. We are return customers and will continue to be.

When we made the reservations we fully intended on items that were on the website. When we arrived and there was a limited menu and neither of the items were on there. I ordered the lamb, which was good however it was over cooked. I requested med-rare and it was well done. However my husbands ribeye was perfect but his broccolini was burnt. The desert was amazing and our waitress was really funny. As far as out experience goes, we still had a nice evening.

One and a half hour and we just got a salad! Never saw our dinners, it was offered to have $38 fish dinner boxed up for later. At least I did not pay for this MESS. Do not go if you plan on going somewhere else afterward. I can try and understand issues in the current times but don't take reservations for someone if you cannot deliver the service. We are to understand higher prices, but then the restaurants need to step up too. It did not happen for us.

Sadly the service was so very slow. Our waitress was very apologetic saying they were so short staffed. we do understand that, but by the time we received our entrée, there was only one other table left in the restaurant, and the entree was just warm. We were truly disappointed. Dinner was very good even though not hot.

I'm sorry this was your experience. Our entire front-of-house staff wears masks as mandated by the governor. We do have two employees that work outside the public domain and are not required to wear masks. Hopefully, when the mandate ends, you will feel comfortable bringing your family in to enjoy some 5-star food and service. 1-star doesn't represent our food and service. I'm sorry you experienced neither.

As always we had a great time at Scratch. The staff and service were on point and the food was amazing. We appreciate the attention to detail. The Rack of Lamb was perfect and the signature salad started the meal off right. (Btw this is a real review, not paid or an employee of the restaurant:)

Service was slow with only 1 bartender/waitress working. Food came out over cooked after waiting over 30 mins for it. Waitress was kind and sent it back for us. Really disappointed this visit as we have been here before and it was great.

This place is a gem.
Selection is great with 10 or so entrees, all of which sound delicious. Server was attentive and professional. Nice ambience for date night. Food was as good as it sounded in the menu narrative.
Highly recommend.
Spokane has many locally owned and or chef owned and operated dining choices that are very good. Rain is among them. Get out and support them, during these challenging times.

Lisa was our server. She has been, hands down; (in the last 10 years that my wife and I have been making a hobby of going out to dinner 2-3 times a month), the best server we have ever had. The food was great, the atmosphere was quiet and relaxed, and the ambience was very inviting. Everyone should go try this place if they find themselves in the area.

In town for the evening, wanted to have a nice dinner with my husband. Great food! He had the filet mignon and said it was very good. I had the Scratch Trio and it was also very good! I would definitely recommend this restaurant!

Great restaurant overall. Well conceived cocktails. Food was sublime. Service was just a little slow but the bartender covers both sides of the place so not a big deal. Spendy but very much worth it. I only gave 4 stars for ambiance because we chose a window seat and I spent my meal watching the dregs of downtown Spokane give me the stink eye.

Is this place good? Well, I ordered a dish with a side that had mushrooms risotto. I hate mushrooms, but everything else sounded good. I have been fantasizing about that mushroom risotto ever since then. SO GOOD. Of course so was the salad and the duck and poached pear, but I already know I would like those.

My guest and I went to Scratch for dinner before the symphony. It’s restaurant week so did that menu. I got the salad and steak off special menu. Salad excellent but steak arrived medium rather than rare I ordered. Without missing a beat the server went to get me a box for the first one ( never seen that before) while new one prepared. It was perfectly cooked and seasoned. Outstanding service. This is second time at Scratch and more impressed than when we came last year. Will be back.

Thank you Damon for incredible attentiveness and recommendations. Food was as satisfying as the service. Other servers like Ryan stopped by randomly just to check on us. Prices have gone up but easily worth it, given the total experience. Duck and Hot Pot...highly recommend both.
