Great evening at Scratch with a work crowd

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.

Great food, wonderful service, and lively, kicky atmosphere. Great for dinner with friends, people-watching and making a night of it.

Many good options on the menu and a very pleasant ambiance, but the brunch has been disappointing several times & I've left hungry - not what you expect from brunch! My suggestion would be to stop in here for glass of wine or cocktail after dinner elsewhere. They have many interesting cocktails and the wines by the glass are great... More

I was pleasantly surprised with this restaurant. The staff is impeccably trained. I will say we had outstanding service. I don't say that often. We were seated promptly. Our server Xavier was wonderful. He was so attentive and professional. The rest of the staff were also. If they walked by and saw an empty plate they would stop and pick... More

Drinks and food, quick and delish. Awesome cocktails. Scratch is upping it's game. Will return for a full recon soon!

This has become one of my favorite restaurants in Mountain View. I've been for dinner and brunch a few times and always have a great meal. The service is always spot on, and at brunch you can find some pretty hilarious but attentive waiters. The ambiance is nice; wooden booths and bar, good lighting. It can be a smidge loud... More

This is my "go-to" restaurant for informal business lunches and dinner. But it is important to request a booth and the open table section can get pretty load. The food itself is pretty good -- especially their take on traditional American specialties such as meatloaf and fried chicken.

The ambiance is great and waiters are warm. Serving groups can be tricky but the restaurant gets this. I enjoyed the bacon wrapped dates as starters; however I found the artichokes quite bland. My colleagues who had fish highly recommend the halibut and the scallops. I found the lamb rather ordinary. My recommendation is that fish is the better option.... More

Restaurant has been here for a few years but my first time trying. Was warmly greeted and shown to out table. Clean restaurant blots of great menu choices. Had a tuna Niçoise salad which was really good. Well seasoned and dressed. Small for a lunch salad and the seared tuna slices could have been more substantial and a bit fresher.... More

Scratch serves superb food elegantly. The service is absolutely impeccable. We were there in the early evening on a week night, but the place was reasonably busy already. However, the service didn't miss a beat. I can't say enough about the food. We had scallops, mussels, mac & cheese and fried chicken. Everything was spot on. One small word of... More
