On Scratch’s menu, they have a soup specifically labeled as vegan and I specified when making the reservation that one of the members of the party is a vegan. However, when it came time to order, the server reported that the soup was the only vegan option and shrugged his shoulders when asked if they had any other options. It was an expensive meal that could not be fully enjoyed by all of the members of the party being left to eat soup and the burnt edge of an acorn squash (due to the dairy pre-mixed in the rice filling). If they are unwilling to cater to people with special diets, perhaps they should not have items labeled as such on the menu.
Our first time at Scratch and it was definitely a positive experience the quality and the food preparation were spot on. The flavors were exceptional and I look forward to my next trip to Spokane to experience another great meal.
Not worth it. Save your money. Food was over priced for the quality.
The food was expensive and did NOT live up to the expectations at all! The red lighting gave me a headache. Overall was not worth the trip.
We enjoy this restaurant for before or after movies or concerts downtown. The food is always very tasty and filling. The waiters and waitresses are super nice and helpful. We will definitely return.
Yikes. Moved people already seated with drinks to make room for a larger group. Is this not what reservations are for ... to coordinate seating? Also, We were two people set at a four person table with several 2 people tables still open. Waitress asked for one of our chairs for incoming group then shortly after grabbed the other chair for another group. So 0 on the romantic factor with all the table movements and chair interruptions. Decent GF menu with exception of appetizers. The pork choice was very good but my chicken was dry. The Scratch salad was bland we both thought. They do not allow happy hour drinks at dinner table but said we could go sit in the bar. Nice wine list bottles starting at$28. The other plus was being right across the street from The Fox for the symphony. Overall it was just a 3 and pricey for a just okay experience and was very noisy. Not sure we will return. Still shocked that a restaurant of a supposedly higher quality moved people that had been seated for a bit to make room for another group. It seemed that was not well coordinated.
Scratch is our go to restaurant for special occasions. The food and service is great!
We were very impressed with Scratch. We celebrated my Birthday dinner and were very pleased with the food, atmosphere, and service. We shared the Ribeye and it was simply delicious.
Menu is interesting but pork dish was waaay over done, and dry.
Friends got really sick on the seafood
Could buy most of the wines at the grocery store.
We dined at Scratch prior to an event at the Bing. The whole experience was great!. The waiter was very helpful with his inputs about what to order. We had the hanger steak, the steelhead and duck and all were excellent. The wine suggestion was also yummy and went well with my meal. They were accommodating of our time frame to get to our event and we will definitely go back. My only complaint is that the restaurant was pretty drafty and too cool for me, but that's my issue :-)
The two pasta dishes were very creamy. The pork was overdone and dry.
The waitress was great. Salads were good.
I won't judge Scratch, where we've often stopped in for dinner, on the basis of this unsatisfying experience. We made a reservation and came in to support the restaurant's anniversary. We were disappointed in the ho-hum food preparation. I asked for my entree medium-well, which it was not, but some of the vegetables were way overcooked. My husband also was underwhelmed by the dish he ordered.
We'll probably come back again, but it won't be for a while. I don't mind paying a pretty hefty price for a memorable meal, but I don't want to for food I could have prepared better at home.
The food & service were great though the high top table was not. Next time, I'll be sure to ask for a regular table. It's such a convenient place to go before the symphony!!
Scratch did not have our reservation and we had to wait about 25 minutes. Food was ok and a little pricey
Exquisite cocktail menu
