I love eclectic, laid back restaurants with the old hippie flair; the collective kitchen has great old wooden floors, but everything else was gray and drab. I really can't remember much about the decor, except the big windows looking out to the lovely downtown. The restaurant was empty when I walked in but there were dirty plates on every single...

We read good reviews and expected a memorable experience but sadly it was easily forgotten. The prawns in my dish were regular size shrimp. My husband's frittata was halved fingerling potatoes and chunks of corn beef instead of a hash as menu stated. Frittata was topped with an over cooked egg. Good selection of local beers and wine. Our waitress... More

When we last ate here it was Scratch--now it's Collective Kitchen. It's still a good place to eat on the main street in the city. Food was very good. Be warned (positively) that the appetizer bruschetta was huge--6 pieces with tomatoes, garlic, onion pot. 3 tacos were very full of pork. And the beet salad was good too. We had... More

You can sit outside and dine. There was a crowd there, but we got a seat outside after we pointed out to the server that no one was sitting at a table outside and it hadn't been cleared. All we had was soup ad salad, anti was good. Go early if you want to get seated, inside is kind of... More

I was staying at the Coeur d'Alene resort for a conference and the hotel recommended this restaurant for breakfast. It was only 4-5 blocks from the resort. It is a small restaurant, but cozy. We sat outside on the patio. They had a very nice selection on the menu for breakfast and the food was fantastic! I had a wonderful... More

Not sure if this is new ownership / chef / whatever, but the establishment at 501 Sherman has a new name, but the old web site. Four of us enjoyed a great dinner, but slow service - luckily we liked our beers while we waited. The mushroom risotto was excellent; half of it filled me up and I had a... More

And, it's even better food! We were there on Wednesday when their bottled wines are 50% off. Food was very fresh. We are going back soon.

We went here for dinner for our family of four. The food was enjoyable, and the atmosphere was cozy (we sat by a gas fireplace, which was nice). The beer and wine-by-the glass were good accompaniments for the food. They didn't have their beer list on a menu, so the waitress led me through a labyrinth to the tap room... More

Went here last night - nice live entertainment playing in the background. Peppy atmosphere. Service was really good and food was done very well. We would go again
