Everyone in our party loved it (and our family, locals, took us there because they already loved it). They really do offer a tremendous variety (even a very novel "veggie plate"). The concept is original, the food is good, and the service was friendly. It's not supposed to be 5 star dining, it's off a busy highway. It's great for... More

The web site looked great and we looked forward to our visit. What a shambles..there is one wine of each varietal..one cabernet...something they picked up at a wine store. Food was consistently bad. Waiter was horribly inexperienced.. Not everyone could hear him, after going through the order had to come back later to check it, and at one stage peered... More

Scratch is a solid three star restaurant in the Winter Park area offering slightly overpriced seasonally rotating tapas (very very tiny tapas samples) style dishes in a loud and dark setting delivered by uninformed servers. The restaurant is located on Fairbanks just east of New York Avenue. There is no street parking. Instead, there is a small lot on the... More

Last weekend we celebrated our son's 29th birthday at Scratch Restaurant in Orlando. His girfriend got a couple of his friends together and we all went to Scratch. I loved it. It is small, but very accomodating and the owner, chef and servers were absolutely amazing!! It is a nice, pleasant atmosphere and everyone there makes you feel very welcomed.... More

This used to be one of my favourite and frequented restaurants in Orlando. However I think too much has changed since Dustin Haney left over a year ago and not for the better! They are struggling to find their groove, and figuring out the menu. None of the signature dishes they are known for are on the new menu [pork... More

Like many of these comments, we had heard mixed reviews of this restaurant, most of them favorable. Although no menu was listed on their website (only three signature dishes), it added to the intrigue. We made a reservation ahead of time for a Saturday night which turned out to be unnecessary... the dining room is small but only had two... More

We had heard good things about this place, and it is a very cute and inviting atmosphere, but the food was terribly disappointing, and, very expensive. It is designed as a small plates, tapas experience, which appeals, but $12 for a VERY small portion of almost raw cauliflower is outrageous. We left hungry because we just did not want to... More

Small well run restaurant in Winter Park with happy and attentive staff. Menu is fresh and offers "small plates" and "larger plates". Although they claim this is tapas, it is just simple, tasty food served to meet your appetite. We loved our food. Great flavors and creativity. Service was slow, but gave us a chance to relax and simply enjoy... More

I was really excited to try this place. The concept sounded neat and the place was super-kitschy and eclectic. The food, or lack thereof, was incredibly disappointing. My friend and I arrived a little before 8- not late for a friday night. I should have taken the fact that the two dishes I attempted to order- brussel spouts and another... More

Love this cozy little place! It's eclectic and has a Euro feel. Locally owned, small plates and delish! We had the wedge first and with a pork belly topping, this is not your average wedge. We loved it! The fried green tomatoes were another favorite. The black sesame broccoli was dynamite. The owner came by and chatted with us and... More
