I was on a business trip with 3 coworkers and we dropped in for dinner tonight. China is a charismatic and entertaining hostess and provides a fabulous meal, even without a reservation. I will recommend her restaurant as a delicious stop for anyone visiting or living in Medicine Hat.

Homemade potato soup today was so yummy on this snowy day. We have had only excellent service, & fantastic tasting food here. Chef China always remembers us & the fact that I am gluten free as well. Still the best place in town to eat!

From Scratch is a true dining experience. The owner is always introducing new menu items which are a unique blend of French, Italian, and other influences. Crepes are one of their specialties and are all equisite be they savoury or sweet. I haven't gone wrong with an appetizer there yet, but the prosciutto wrapped dates and Italian nachos are my...

From Scratch is a great little bistro located in central Medicine Hat. Although you wouldn't know it from the outside, hidden inside is an authentic Italian Bistro experience, where everything is from scratch! Wonderful pasta, superb olive tapenade, and a fantastic wine list make this one of our favorites! Great food like this would cost double at most places, so... More

My husband and I booked the 7 course Valentine's Day dinner as we had heard that it was fabulous. It indeed was wonderful. You do not know in advance what the 7 courses are, of course unless you have allergies, they can accommodate. Each course was tastefully presented, the portion sizes were the perfect size so we didn't feel stuffed.... More

I bought valentines day tickets, unfortunately my baby the day of the event started projectile vomiting, I rang to inform the restaurant of the situation and ask for some kind of refund or maybe a gift certificate for use at a later date, understanding that they might not be able to. I was informed by the owner that I should... More

First let me say how sorry I am that we seem not to be able to communicate. You hung up before I could finish offering you any solution to your problem. We did indeed phone you back offering you the opportunity to enjoy the 7 Course Valentine's dinner on 15 as we were presenting it both evenings. You were also... More

The Restaurant provides a quaint atmosphere you wouldn't expect from the outside. We started our adventure with fresh bread that came with balsamic and oil for dipping, it was nothing special and could have used more balsamic with the oil. Next we had an Olive Tapinade which was very flavorful and would definitely recommend ordering it. For our main course... More

This visit was for dinner. Usually requires reservations but we stopped in right at opening & owner was able to fit us in. Fantastic meal as everything is cooked to your taste & dietary need. Had the bacon wrapped dates to start & there were enough for two. Main meal was gluten free pasta with shrimp (large) & cream sauce.... More

Popped in for lunch (no reservation needed at this time of day). We had the Veggie Crepe (gluten free) with Italian salad & the Poalo Pizza & shared Penna Cotta dessert which was fantastic. Owner remembers her repeat customers & is always friendly. Service & food excellent. Food very fresh. We love this place!!
