Very nice last minute stop

We arrived about 8p after a long flight from Midwest, simply in search of a meal. We were very impressed with the menu, atmosphere, and service. The food and cocktail selection was fresh and unique. The lobster salad was amazing.

One of the moor upmarket places in Mountain View, this restaurant has a nice quiet vibe inside so need to shout to hear those around you on the table. Booths are the best place to sit and be able to enjoy a level of privacy whilst still being within the main bulk of the action. Food is very good, with... More

Dropped in by myself on Sunday, a little before mid-day, and sat at the bar. The bartender presented me with a brunch and abbreviated lunch menu. I was feeling a little more like lunch, asked for advice, and he pointed me to the fried chicken and waffles, saying "It covers both bases" (breakfast and lunch), and that it is excellent.... More

The food here is excellent. Our wait staff was attentive & courteous. However, after having a few drinks before dinner the hostess literally asked us if we were having dinner or moving along. We let our server know we were having dinner after a few drinks & he seemed to have no issue with it. The hostess on the other... More

I have only eaten lunch at Scratch, but both times I was very pleased with the atmosphere, service, and food. Scratch was busy but not crowded or noisy at lunchtime, and we had a very pleasant leisurely meal in an atmosphere that allowed comfortable conversation. We will be back again.

I ate here once, it was good, but am not sure I would go back for a second time. The food met but did not exceed expectations. It was also noisy, but that is par for the course at most Bay Area restaurants.

On our way to a show at Levi stadium, we stopped at Scratch for an early dinner. It was our first visit and we found them online. we liked that they had a real vegetarian menu for our family members we went with. The room was open and comfortable, the bar service and staff were friendly and efficient. The menu... More

Had a great dinner at Scratch with around 10 people. We shared appetizers and the Medjool dates were great and the artichoke was very yummy. Entrees were nice. Good cocktail menu and wine list.
