“First time visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2014

3 of us had fish; 1 had pork. We all enjoyed it. Presentation was wonderful. The 2 desserts were v. tasty. Even though none of us needed gluten-free, it was great to eat that way and have such a wonderful experience. With 4 entrees, 2 drinks, and 2 desserts, we paid $45/person which included the tip. I think that is reasonable in this day and age. I recommend it.

“Gluten-Free Paradise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 February 2014

If you are gluten-free, whether by choice or medical necessity, then you already know how hard it is to find a compatible restaurant. Especially one where you can have the run of the menu. For that reason alone, we'd give Scratch a hearty five stars.

But there's more to it than that -- the service was great, the staff was friendly, and best of all... the food was very delicious. While this might be a slight price point above the average sit-down restaurant, we definitely felt that it was a good value. We were able experience new dishes and flavors that were exciting and creative. For us, it is a place we will gladly return to and keep in mind for special occasions.

“Unique and satisfying”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 January 2014

Table of 4 and luckily 4 different entrees.....A+ on the Scallops, Pork Loin & Chicken. I had the Steak of the day, which was top sirloin.....delicious, but not the best cut of meat, kinda chewy.
The waitress, Lauren, was great and managed to handle my "toasted" friend Aggie with grace and poise. The crudite and appetizer was very good, as well....a nice bottle of wine....and pretty romantic ambience...(maybe a little noisy)...A good time and some delicious ideas.

“Unique little restaurant with excellent food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 December 2013

Our table was near the chef so he answered questions as we chatted within our group of 6. The salad was delicious, very nicely dressed. My entree was a mix of so many complimentary flavors. It is pricey. Bill with tip for a glass of wine, salad and entree was $60. They also do not do separate checks as a rule so dining with friends paying separately could be dicey.

“Gourmet Gluten-Free”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 October 2013

The food is amazing! Very hard to believe that it is all gluten-free. What a treat to be able to have bread with a meal. This was my second visit and was celebrating my birthday with my family. Truly a fantastic experience.
