Simply a great Tapas like meal!

Honestly I should have rated this at 3-4 stars.....there was quite a mix up with seating and the place was simply hot inside....but the food and service was simply excellent. Wonderful small plates.....I love getting small plates for sharing that way you can taste multiple dishes. I could list... read more

Interesting design and concept. The food is creative and delicious. However, the price point seemed a little high for tapas.

We enjoyed a weeknight dinner recently with three diners. We shared many dishes and we even reordered the amazing shrimp and grits. We sampled seven dishes. Our favorites were the broccolini, shrimp and grits plus the cheese sampler. Each dish had great flavor. The place is small and fills up quickly. The service was good and we look forward to... More

I thought all weekend about how to write this review, I wanted to emphasize how outstanding the food is and still haven't thought of a way to word it so you can really understand what I mean! Awesome Dining Experience! My girlfriend and I had seen/heard a little about Scratch so we took ourselves out for a "Fancy Girls Night... More

I'm not huge into small plates for dinner, but here they are presented well and you can share several to get a variety. Good wine and beer list. The decor is real eclectic and unusual. Casual atmosphere. Service was attentive but not over the top. Reasonably priced. Something different.

Was really surprised by the quaint restaurant that I've driven by many times. Decided to pop in and try it out and I was blown away! The risotto with shrimp and lemon was so good, had to order another one. There was also a fish dish that the server highly recommended that was delicious, as well! Loved how friendly the... More

Food is easily of the high ranks of Winter Park gastronomy. Portions make it a pricey soirée, but if you don't mind paying for it, the dining experience is well worth it.

This restaurant was such a pleasure. Great tapas plates with super nice people working there. It's small and special...a very nice change from many Orlando chain restaurants. It's worth the drive to Winter Park to eat there, if you're visiting Orlando.

This was a very nice dinning experience, like eating small shared meals much like you see from the cooking channnel TV shows. Very creative and fun! We had broccoli and cheddar which is way better than it sounds (with lots of cheese and grilled perfectly) . The buttermilk risotto with rock shrimp and corn was yummy. The pan roasted chicken...

I went to Scratch with a group of friends and had to wait a bit for a table. The place does not take reservations and while waiting isn't usually a problem, it can be here due to the small space. The bar was pretty packed the entire time we were there, with people standing mostly the entire time. We wanted... More
