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.

A friend recommended Marche and we are so glad she did! Best farm to table dining in Eugene. Loved all the plant=based dishes, and the pickle platter was awesome. By far one of my best meals this year. And I live in the San Francisco Bay Area. Highly recommended, as well as Provisions Market. The casual food counter there is excellent, especially the salad bar.

We sat at the counter and had quite the show watching the line prep the dishes and it was fun to see the beautiful plates coming out of the kitchen. Very inspiring!

An outstanding dining choice in Eugene for the most basic of reasons: the food and the service. Even with a pleasant outdoor dining area (with the ubiquitous flaming heaters as added entertainment), the decor is comfortable but basic, and would never make you forget you're in an downtown mall. But what really counts is the dining experience, and Marche delivers in spades. Our wait persons (yes, plural) were knowledgeable, friendly, professional, and very helpful. Your glass was never empty, nor a dirty plate left sitting. Bill, our chief server, gave us useful and intelligent descriptions of the offerings. All of the staff have mastered that fine art of serving without getting in the way.
And the food was wonderful. Solidly based on seasonal local products, the menu offers a wide range of dishes. The appetizer, or "starters," were especially varied and intriguing. The charcuterie board was filled many different pates, salamis, pickled vegetables, terrines. The chicken livers were superb; the oysters tasty. The deviled chicken had a good kick, but remained juicy and tender. The triple lamb combo of chop, sausage and leg was a lamb-lover's dream. The whole menu was a delight to explore.

The wait staff was excellent. We had a nice table. They brought bread and butter immediately after we sat down. The food was good but 2 out of 4 orders were not cooked as requested; one was overcooked and the other, too rare. The rare dish was sent back and returned so quickly that we assume they put the entrée in a microwave oven. The side dish of roasted veggies was still cool, in fact. They did nothing else to make amends, so it was a disappointing experience.

Excellent food.. each dish was full of flavor; the dishes made me want to savor each bite. The ingredients were unique but familiar. Classic French cuisine. It's location in a historic market added to the experience.

I normally give Marche a 5 star rating. Service is always 5 Star. The raw oysters are always 5 Star. The steak frites however was very disappointing. I don’t understand how the chef ruined the tenderloin. It was terribly over cooked and stringy. We asked for medium. It wasn’t pink at all and it has no flavor because it was over cooked. Steak frites is normally a rib eye. We thought for sure the Tenderloin would be moist and tender. Very disappointing.

We were visiting in Eugene for a week and ate at Marche 4 times, 3 dinners and 1 lunch. Food is well prepared and presented, nice variety of items on the menu but not overwhelming. They were able to accommodate my dietary preferences without a fuss by eliminating the bacon on the chicken dish (which was tasty. )

I have mixed feelings about this restaurant. Overall, I think the food is quite good. However, this was my first time at the restaurant, and there were definitely many issues. Our waiter definitely had a bad day. My friend asked for a "taste" of a cider, and was brought a whole glass. Then, was brought 2 "tastes". My other friend ordered a glass a wine, which never arrived. I ordered a steak medium rare, and it arrived medium well to almost well done. I had to send it back, and then it took a long time for the steak to show up again. When the new steak came, it was cooked perfectly and absolutely delicious, and they comped my steak, but the overall dining experience was ruined. When you go to a nicer restaurant and pay a certain amount of money, you expect a certain level of quality, service, and experience -- which it just didn't meet my expectations. However, the overall quality and flavor of the food was excellent.
