We went to Scratch with a team of colleagues, to celebrate a retreat day of hard work. It was perfect for this occasion -- lots of good sharing options (flat breads, salads), and delicious entree options. Also, there's a separate vegetarian menu with many choices. Staff was very friendly and patient with our large group.

Popped in for a quick brunch. Very nice environment, excellent and very personal service. Extensive menu with options for everyone, backed up by attentive and knowledgable servers. Food quality very good indeed and quickly and professionally served. A hit with our whole team, highly recommended.

I was looking for a place for a celebration that had a fun vibe, good cocktails and other drinks. Scratch checked all the boxes. We also wanted to bring our dog and Scratch has a wonderful patio which is protected from the cold and wind and has strong heat lamps. The selection of food and drinks was terrific. The vegetarians... More

My past visits to Scratches had not been good. Well, other than when it first opened af few years back, it was fantastic then, good food, good service. Recent visit was quite a surprise, although not as good as when it first opened but it was quite an improvement. Service was a big improvement, although I still recognize a few... More

This restaurant surprised me because the name whilst implying made from scratch, doesn't imply posh to me. The restaurant has an air of sophistication. The staff were friendly. The food we ordered arrived in a fairly timely manner and was good. The portions were about right. I feel the only negative I felt was may be that it is a... More

We've come here for their special Christmas dinner menu twice now, and it has been delicious both times. Good service. Expensive, naturally.

I didn't like the place for the food. French fries were so oily. We ordered an appetizer and the quantity was so low. I had better pastas than the one which was served. Options in the menu were less.

Father's Day, the restaurant is 50-70% full. The kids were served and finished their lunches before the adults were even served. Incomprehensible slow delivery. Furthermore, during this peak period, the men's restroom had wet floors with paper towels scattered around the floor. It was like that over two trips to the bathroom about an hour apart. Apparently cleanliness is not... More

We came here for a family celebration. The food was wonderful but the service not so much. FOOD - GREAT I had the fried chicken and it was perfection. The crispy outside was seasoned perfectly and the inside was moist and tender. Worth every decadent calorie. The sides weren't shabby either. I loved the fresh corn cake. I am not... More
