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.

Despite making a reservation for the dining room over a week in advance, we were sat in the bar to accommodate a family that had an under-21 member and therefore couldn’t be sat in the bar. Both the appetizer and my date’s entree were missing items that were described on the menu and we would have brought this to The attention of our servers’ (yes, multiple servers assigned to our table) but we would go 30+ minutes at a time between server visits to our table. Then, just to get the check, I had to go track down the restaurant’s supervisor and ask her for it. All in all, the food we was served was delicious, even if it was missing several components, and the musical act was very entertaining. I do not have any intentions of returning to Scratch, which is too bad because I’ve enjoyed dining there on several prior because the experience would have been disappointing on any occasion but was unacceptable on a special occasion like Valentines Day.

We had four in our party. Good wine selection. Everyone enjoyed their food except for one who ordered gnocchi which was actually cavatelli. The cavatelli was chewy, not soft. It came with three prawns and cost $39. The osso bucco was much better and actually cheaper. Our server was really good and tried to serve a different entree to make up for it. Dessert was delicious - chocolate tart and house-made ice cream. The prices for entrees were expensive for Spokane. Not sure I'd go back.

The offerings were inventive buy seemed overly complicated, that is, one or two elements too many. Both of the dishes we had, clams and Hot Pot, were quite spicy.

Food was great but server was not- she put the closed bottle of wine on the table & walked away! Luckily it was a screw top bottle & we were able to open it & serve ourselves!! We’ve always had very attentive servers but not this time....

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.
