A word from Marche
Marche, located in Eugene, Oregon, opened in August 1998. The restaurant, which seats 80 guests, has an exhibition kitchen featuring a beautiful wood-fired oven. There is also a stylish bar and a large outdoor dining area, covered with awnings and umbrellas and surrounded by a garden of herbs and edible flowers. Marche takes its name from the French word for market – a word that describes our location in the bustling 5th street Market and more importantly, our philosophy of cooking. The menu is based on the foods one would find at a farmer’s market: fresh, seasonal, and regional. Marche is committed to using only those ingredients that are at their best, so our menu evolves as we move through the seasons of the year. Marche also believes in using the highest quality and most healthful ingredients available and to that end use organic, free range, and chemical free products. The culinary technique is French-based: intensely flavored and simply but beautifully presented.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Such a nice atmosphere. Consistently excellent service, food, and atmosphere. You fell like you're in a little cafe in France."
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "Living in Eugene we have eaten at Marche many times through the years, often to not full satisfaction. Everything from extremely slow, mediocre service, nothing on the menu we wanted, not very vegetarian-friendly, some meals not that great, and overpriced. I used a gift certificate and took my family there for Easter dinner. Was pleasantly surprised, as all our meals were very good and so was the service. They willingly moved us to a quieter table, too. Still overpriced in my book, but hoping they're generally on the up."

  • "I brought my family from out of town to this restaurant for the 1st time. We all loved it. It was a little pricier than expected but it was well worth every penny. Eating there for one night made me feel like I was on vacation with my family. Thanks for the great night!"
    Dined on 4/18/2014
  • "We brought a visiting scholar to dinner at Marche following a talk that other graduate students and I had organized at UO earlier that evening. The six of us (four grad students, one faculty, and the guest speaker) enjoyed excellent locally sourced seasonal appetizers and wine before our excellent main courses. Everyone was impressed by the food and service. It was very comfortable and conducive to conversation. Wish I could afford to go more!"
    Dined on 4/17/2014
  • "The food and wine was excellent. My only disappointment is that I ordered a bordeaux wine and at the last sip ended up with a mouth full of sediment (serious amount was left in the glass. The waiter should have automatically removed the $10 charge for the glass but did not. I had to ask him to do that. "

  • "We had a birthday dinner at Marche. The food was great, especially the entrees, but the service was very poor. The waiter was nice, pleasant, etc, but it took almost 30 minutes to get our drinks, and the wait to take our main dish order then wait for food was REALLY long. The whole meal took over three hours. Maybe they were short staffed that night, but it definitely colored our experience. I won't be returning anytime soon."
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "We picked this restaurant based on the excellent review it got in The Oregonian. Made our reservations on the way down to visit with our daughter, who is a student at U of O. The service and food were both outstanding. It was a gorgeous spring day so we decided to dine on their patio. Couldn't have been happier!"
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "The best feature of the service on this visit was the pace. Marche was in no hurry to get us out. We had a special occasion and wanted to enjoy. Food was well made and interesting but not the best I have seen from them in the past. Price is high even compared to high end Portland restaurants."

  • "Our Family Friends came to Eugene last year and we did brunch at Marche...this year they demanded to go again. the salmon hash was wonderful!"

  • "Another great meal at Marche. We were able to get in at the last minute. Great time. Black Margaretta (sp) was wonderful."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "Our group of three adults came in for one of Marche's French Regional Dinner - The Loire Valley - with wine tasting flight. We love these meals because they give us a chance to taste food we normally do not have a chance to eat. The sommelier personally gave us expert information about each wine we tasted. Another enjoyable night at Marche!"
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "Great vegetarian options at Marche. Their souffle is superb, surrounded by delicious root vegetables with a balsalmic reduction, excellent. Salads are always made with the freshest of local produce."
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "Our second time there. We love the atmosphere and the food. We prefer to sit at the bar vs the tables in the restaurant."

  • "We were celebrating my wife's birthday and we had amazing service and outstanding food."
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "The reviews we read we spot on. Delicious food, great service from knowledgeable wait staff, and noticeable attention to detail make this a true dining experience. Not to be missed!"
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "The food was expensive but absolutely worth it. A different experience than anywhere in Eugene. The beef tenderloin was the best piece of meat I have ever had. When I finished eating it the feeling was just pure satisfaction, like after really good sex. The service was amazing, our water was always full and there was never a wait, they paid attention and knew when we were ready. It was a little small and our table was kind of cramped but it was ok because it added to the ambiance of being in a small cafe in France, which I have never been but it is what I imagine it would be like. Once you adjust and get comfortable though you forget all about how close your fellow foodies are. Love, love, love this place."

  • "We really enjoyed this place. I highly recommend it."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "I've had better experiences at Marche'. This was brunch. The server was less attentive than I am used to at Marche'. The food was very good, with the exception of the fruit plate: a few thin slices of pear, apple and a few chunks of pineapple do not add up to a $5 fruit plate. I set the bar high for Marche' and am usually not disappointed. This time, I was."
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "We have been to Marche several times. The service on this occasion was not great. It took more than an hour to get our meals. We had to ask for drink service and even then, it was quite awhile before our waiter arrived to take our order. We were offered one half glass of wine as compensation after we finally asked when our dinner was arriving and this was appreciated. Additionally, we never heard of any specials and we were never asked if we would like another full glass of wine. The food was excellent for most of our party. However, the pork chop was not cooked through and was very salty. While we would recommend this restaurant, we were disappointed in our experience this particular visit."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "The oysters were very fresh and tasty. The charcuturie was good but not noteworthy for someone who has tried many. Mainly because the selection was limited. But the dessert was in a class by itself. The chocolate was very good. But the semifreddo was one of the best things I've ever eaten. Overall, we would certainly come back to try the rest of the menu and repeat on the dessert."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "This is a place I always take clients when they are in town. The food was great, as it always is.. The wine selection is always easy with so many outstanding wines to choose from. You can't go wrong choosing Marche"
    Dined on 2/5/2014
  • "The black cod was amazing! 7:30 reservation and in our room at Inn at 6th at 8:30!"
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "Enjoyed one of the monthly dinners, this time Normandy and Brittany. All courses delicious although the Camembert was not ripe. Did not choose the accompanying wine flight, but it is usually a nice addition to the meal. Service was friendly and timely. Booth seating is cozy and comfortable"

  • "Marche' is fine dinning resturant, the server was young,pleasant but lacked experience. Wonderfull assortments of wine and knowledgable sommelier."

  • "french bistro food and atmosphere- missing the fois gras(!!!), a good reason alone for visiting Marche. Need to let the staff know when you want to eat more solwly....comme les francais, and then they accommodate you very nicely. Excellent sommelier."

  • "Lovely restaurant. Excellent service. Creative and diverse menu. Perfect execution. Definitely not the same-old same-old."

  • "-hard to find french eating culture in the fast paced american restaurant style- get 'em in, get 'em out style vs taking time over good food. Leaving clients to enjoy the good food is important to french people, as is good consistent service. A difficult thing to attain here...when the food is this good, it deserves to be celebrated slowly!!!"

  • "We celebrated a birthday before a show at the Hult Center. Our pork chop dinner was delicious. I tried the Pear, chickory, bleu cheese salad - delicious also. We look forward to coming again. Our service was excellent."

  • "I go for the booths when I come here. Cozy and a little moe private. Attentive service and the food is always good. Convenient location with parking."
    Dined on 12/10/2013
  • "We enjoyed a fantastic meal in an upscale but "Eugene" casual environment. The staff was attentive & knowledgable I had the smoked pork chop & was very pleased to find it cooked medium instead of well as many still believe is necessary. It was flavorful, tender & juicy. The beet salad was delightful. He had the beef medalion that was a tender & succulent & he had the oysters & was in heaven. We enjoyed several wines from the "by the glass" section. We started with the Trocadero Brut Blanc de Blanc and it was bubbly and light & fruity. With dinner I had the Anne Amie Pinot Gris and it was a lovely compliment to the pork. He had the Joseph Drouhin Pinot Noir and it was a deep, complex wine that paired with the beef beautifully."

  • "We live in another city (1500 miles away) and whenever we are in the area we look forward to a dinner at Marche. The food is not only excellent, it is local, sessional and generally organic. The food is creative and as I mentioned uses local ingredients. The drink menu is also inventive - fun!"
    Dined on 12/3/2013
  • "We love this chic little restaurant and often find ourselves driving up from Southern Oregon to enjoy a meal there. The service is always warm and professional, atmosphere the same. The menu adapts seasonally with bold, unexpected flavor fusions. More often than not, we come home inspired to try new things out in our own kitchen."
    Dined on 11/29/2013
  • "We don't live in Eugene, but over the years when on traveling on Hwy 5, if at all possible, we try to time at least one meal at Marche. Our latest stop confirms our nearly 12 year commitment. Bravo Marche!!!"
    Dined on 12/1/2013
  • "We eat here often enough to see the rhythm of menu changes: about once a month to conform to seasonal changes in the locally available, mostly organic, fresh food. Within that cycle there are daily and weekly specials that are not on the menu. This night I ate the end of the rabbit stew from the last cycle that ended yesterday. Delicious with wild mushrooms, onions carrots a very tasty thick broth and delicious dumplings. Yum! As a starter. I had the caramelized Brussels sprouts that came with a delicious beef broth, still on the menu. Dessert? Hazelnut crunch ice cream with caramel sauce. Service as always was very friendly and careful without being intrusive. Marché is far and away my favorite restaurant in Eugene."

  • "Their hood under which they cook is underpowered. We were sat in the back auxiliary dinning room with no ambiance because the main dining room was being choked out with grease smoke from the grill. I guess they have a happy hour burger and if too many people order it the hood becomes over loaded.. If I were the owners I would upgrade..... Other patrons were complaining and asked to be moved several times putting some tension in the atmosphere. The food use just OK, nothing special the steak was over cooked. and the fish preparation was not well thought out, in a larger more competitive dining scene they would be left in the dust, but Eugene is small enough for them to remain open."
    Dined on 11/23/2013
  • "The food was phenomenal, the flavors were unique, one flavor did not overpower another, the ingredients were fresh and local. It was expensive but the cost equaled the extraordinary preparation."

  • "Went for a Sunday night supper when we were in Eugene. The restaurant always provides good food. Moulles Frites are excellent. I had the pork chop which was imbues with a nice smoky flavor. We all enjoyed our dinners."
