While enjoying a fine meal at this restaurant, I found the price to be more than equally pleasant surroundings required. Keep looking.

Great food on this, our 3rd visit back. Good biscuits makes a nice app, and the bottle of Elk Cove PinotGris was a reasonable $52.00. My other half had an excellent Ahi Tuna Nicoise, and I had the excellent rotisserie chicken. Beautiful setting, wonderful full...More

I really liked the flatbread pizza and the ambience, but my salad was kinda boring and the prices are high. Overall, it's a nice place and I'll go back and try something another time! Great place to meet for drinks!

I love Scratch and its concept. Fresh food, good organic ingredients, tastefully prepared. Like many quality restaurants (particularly in Silicon Valley(, Scratch is pricey. Worth a treat every now and then!
