Scratch Restaurant and Rain Lounge
Partners Brad Bork, Mari Bork, and Sil Hernandez marry passion, vision, expertise to provide the ultimate dining experience at Scratch.
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.
Food and presentation were outstanding. Service was top notch. Will definitely return.
Staff NOT WEARING MASK!!! Had to leave! Will not put my family at risk!!
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:)
Thank you for your review!
We thoroughly enjoyed a pre-opera dinner. The waitress was very accommodating with our wish to share plates.
We're glad you enjoyed your experience!
The fish that I had was not fresh and it tasted not fresh it was not very good. my husband said his burger was okay but not great. We will not go back again.
Service was excellent however the food was disappointing, cold soup, bloody chicken wings and undercooked pasta... lots of potential for improvement.
Wonderful service and meal. We appreciated that they didn’t rush us out the door at the end of our meal. Quality establishment. Will visit again soon!
Omg this place was incredible!! Found on open table and reviews were good so we decided to give it a try and man were we impressed!! All around good experience and amazing food! Eat the Hot Pot, you won’t be disappointed
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.
We had a great server and the food was amazing!! We will definitely be going back!!
Great place to eat
We beat the dinner crowd. Arrived at 4:30 and our waitress waited on us hand and foot. The foot was outstanding. We will be back. So good-great ambiance! The food was very wonderful, lots of good flavors!
Amazing experience at Scratch for dinner. Food and service was top notch. Can’t wait to go back!
Has dinner the night of the gonzaga NCAA final. Great crowd and probably a bit noisier then normal, as expected. Waitress was awesome and have great recommendations.
I love this place. The service is very personal and the menu (while limited) is very good.
Very attentive service and the food was timely, fresh and flavorable.
Yummy food. Great server. ....................,,...
Food was great, service was poor - our waitress seemed to forget about us.
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.
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.
Amazing food and service! Great drinks and ambience.
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 food, great service, slow night. This place has tons of character - you just feel good supporting them.
Outstanding service and awesome food. From the appetizer to the dessert everything was delicious. Will be returning.
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.
Great service. Food was outstanding
I t was nice. Granted it was the first time we have eaten anything but my cooking since March it was lovely. Waitress was awesome. Food was great.
We had a lovely meal at Scratch with another couple. The lobster risotto was REALLY good. Attentive waiter, good drinks. Come downtown and support your local restaurants!
We had great food and service. The food was excellent. We were there on restaurant week and my husband had the special. I had scallops and the entire meal was really beautiful as well as tasty. Our server was timely and friendly getting us everything we needed.
Scratch never disappoints
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.
Wonderful food, love place and the people. Was a little noisy for us but we were between 2 large groups.
So sweet & romantic. Steak was a little tough but overall experience was great
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.
Excellent food. Spendt but ingredients are fresh and quality.
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.
