We love the vibe in the Rain Lounge and always appreciate the effort the owners take in making their customers' experience memorable. It is a welcoming environment.

Very expensive for quality and quantity. Dishes uneven-?
Steak very mediocre, shrimp papardelle and cheesecake good. Wait staff bussing threw away our uneaten food and didn’t put in to go containers as was discussed with server. - poor communication between staff.

Consistently good food and service. Close to Fox and Knitting Factory. Menu is moderately imaginative. Service is always friendly and efficient.

Great place to eat. We went with my in-laws for our first visit. Great food, great service, our waitress was awesome, and great drinks. My only beef with the drinks is that they didn't have the Johnnie Walker Blue, and the spicy drinks weren't that spicy. We will be going back and I have already recommended it to 10-12 people.

The food was great, exceeded only by the service. The restaurant did not have the wine we first ordered, and our waitress went out of her way to help us choose another, offering tastes of three options. I will definitely return next time I'm in Spokane.

The price point for the restaurant was not reflected in the quality of food. Food was incredibly bland and took an hour and a half to receive hour entree. Our waitress was incredible and very apologetic, but was the only server in the entire restaurant. There were two “hosts” who helped when they were told to buy brought us a dessert menu before we even received our entree. We came here for our anniversary expecting a nice treat to celebrate but ended up ordering a pizza anyway. Will not be recommending to anyone.

Our previous experiences with Scratch have been excellent. This time it was so so. My son and I ordered Chicken Marsala. Both entrees were the same. Chicken was dried out and the pasta was mushy. My husband had the Ahi which was good but not excellent. Hummus platter was good but not outstanding. We didn’t have dessert.

Our party is from Los Angeles, and I can't say enough how delighted we were with the restaurant. The bruschetta and crab chowder were phenomenal, and the Osso Buco two of us ordered was the real deal. Owners Brad and Mari made us feel at home, and excellent cocktails to boot. As good as anything we have back home......

Nice waiter, middling food, long wait for appetizers and soup - that's it, weak drink. Best thing is it's across the street from the theater.

The food was outstanding, as it has been the other two times we've been at Scratch; however, we were celebrating our 24th anniversary and I requested an intimate table. Not only were we seated between two other couples, hardly intimate, there was no mention or congratulation on our anniversary at all. I was highly disappointed in this.

I've been here a couple times now and the food is absolutely excellent. Great flavors and nicely presented. Very good service, too. The location is small and this is not where you go for a view, but it is definitely where foodies should go for the food!

This place was EXCELLENT! I had the Hot Pot. It was fantastic. The price is a bit high but you definitely get what you pay for. Service was great. The atmosphere was nice but not 'stuffy'. Can't say enough about the food.

We had very nice service and overall the food was good. (However, we were expecting a bit more based on reviews and price) It was a very quiet evening (Wednesday). The experience should have been closer to perfect.
Started with some puff pastry bread sticks - served with an aged balsamic. They were just ok - a little oily/ balsamic was too thick for dipping.
My husband ordered the duck . Medium. Plate arrived a bit messy and duck was medium Rare to rare. Server did offer to return it to kitchen, but my husband chose to keep it. ( I definitely would have sent it back!) He said while more rare than he preferred- duck and jus was delicious. My seared ahi was very tasty- generous portion of ahi. Ahi Served a little chunky ( would have been prettier sliced and presented IMO) but tasted good. (Green) Rice was rather bland...but good with ahi and condiments. My sparkling wine was served from a can, it was ok, but just seemed odd in a nice restaurant.
We felt food and service was good, but average. And pricey for average.

It was a quiet Monday night and our server was very attentive. He did not appear bored with older guests and had articulate responses to our "gourmand" questions. The spicy halibut bisque and calamari were both very good.

The waitress was hospitable. The food was delicious and their happy hour prices are excellent. Dinner menu looks amazing but a bit overpriced . Might be worth it. However, I was only there during happy hour .

The food was excellent. The calamari appetizer was tender the recommended wine paired very well with my husbands pork and my duck. The dessert was generous and delicious. Our waitress was friendly and attentive to our needs. We will definitely come back for dinner and also to try the bar which sounded lively and fun.

The food is JUST OUTSTANDING. The plates we received were beautifully presented, rich in color and full flavored.

Our group was a bit of a challenge as we had a high chair, some guests arriving late, etc., nonetheless, our host and all of the service team were completely on point.

Three our our guests were visiting from Portland, and they were over the top impressed with this meal.

Thank you Scratch!!!

Just not overly impressed. The reviews were all over the place when I initially looked into it and it stayed true. Service was alright. Nothing amazing. Menu was decent but they were out of a lot of items and service did not seem timely. We ended up getting a couple appetizers then going some place else for the rest of our food. Don’t think will be returning. Just not a good atmosphere

We went here with friends before a concert and they were very conscious of our time. Everything was perfect from the cocktails, wine, appetizers and main course. The cheese Platter was one of the best we've ever had. The duck is outstanding. We'll definitely be back.

Food was good, but the prices were outrageously high. I had chicken Marsala, about $4 worth of ingredients for $29. My wife and I had no beverages, but with salads and 1 dessert we paid $115.

I have eaten lunch there before, but this was my first dinner. We were attending a show across the street at the Fox. We had the Clams appetizer. Although it was very tasty (the parmesan crostini was awesome), it seemed to be a small portion for $14. Next we had bowls of the Crab Chowder - also excellent. We finished off with a shared Chocolate Decadence slice of cake. All in all - a very pleasant experience and will definitely return to try some of the entrees.

Our second visit. We were concerned about empty places, but partially filled in later. Great service and excellent food. We were visiting our son and very much appreciated the ability to talk without needing to yell. Will plan to visit again when we visit Spokane.
