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.

The service was impeccable from the moment we entered and throughout our meal. Our server, Anna, was a gem. She gave great recommendations, answered our many questions and even came up with a new drink for us. She also knew the menu (flavors) very well. As always, the food was superb. I’m super picky about my steak and it was perfectly cooked and the flavor was AMAZING! Marche is always my go to for a fabulous dining experience.

The menu combines that of a bistro and a boulangerie. If Marché was in Paris, and you lived in the neighborhood, it would not be the best restaurant in the arrondissement, but you would return often for the comfortable ambience, the professional service, and the very good food. Having something like that in Eugene is a stroke of luck.

You can drop by Marché and have a drink and a quick meal of a burger or other sandwiches, a pizza for one, steak frites, fried oysters, and the like. You can also have a nice three-course meal (as we did): when we went the menu contained a half dozen excellent starters and salads; a half dozen main courses including seafood, duck, red meat, and cassoulet; and then some decadent well-made desserts. Come when you want to treat yourself - it will work.

I had made a reservation for five but showed up with seven people. The staff took about five minutes to figure out a logistical solution and seated us all just fine. The service was excellent, the food off the charts—really impressed my visiting relatives—Marche always makes me look good as the hostess!

We travel from San Francisco to stay with family in Corvallis.
Marche is always a destination stop on our way.
The food is exquisite and the service is excellent.
Phil is our favorite server, generally at the bar, and recently at our table.
He remembered us from previous visits and our preferences.
It was great to be back at Marche.

The noise was very loud. It was difficult to carry on a conversation without yelling. The food was excellent and a great selection of spirts and wine by the glass. The service was very good. Next time we will request a booth back in the bar, since it was quieter. Most of the chairs back there are simply wood, and the booths are comfortable. Saturday night, so it was very busy with walk-ins.... Reservations are a "must"...

The food was great! We ordered the oysters, steak frites, and chocolate dessert which were all wonderful. However, the experience was pretty expensive considering the restaurant isn't super fancy. The service, noise level, and ambience were just okay.

We have been to Marche before and the service was always outstanding. This time the hostess held up our “booth” because diners who had reserved before us had not arrived yet. She gave them a half hour to show up. We waited that half hour. I’ve never had to wait a half hour for a table I reserved. I arrived 15 minutes before my scheduled reservation time. I should have been seated shortly after I arrived. Oh well, I guess this stuff happens. However, if diners are late they shouldn’t hold up other diners who are on time.

Marche is Eugene's place to dine. Always superior quality food, prepared to perfection. The cocktails are unique and it's always difficult to choose. Service is outstanding and I always feel well cared for. Don't miss out on the special place.

Marche’. Always dependable. Amazing cocktails, delicious salmon dip appetizer and fried oysters a favorite. Noise level in the bar area was a little loud but Marche’ is a favorite place that we always gravitate to.

Anna providing us a concierge like experience, making us feel at home, special, and valued, truly. We did feel a little close in proximity of other diners, but that probably couldn't be helped in this day and age I expect. Still, it was wonderful.

Table was ready on time, a very comfortable and quiet booth for two couples meeting for dinner.
Server was perfectly attentive, pleasant and professional.
Both the endive salad course and the New York strip entree were outstanding.
Great wine selection and delicious deserts.
Highly recommend!

Oysters on the half shell was excellent, very fresh and tasty.
Unfortunately my halibut was overcooked, the risotto was lukewarm.
I would have told my server if they had checked back in time.
Cannot recommend the choucroute garne, the presentation was bland so is the taste.
I had a great dinner 3 weeks ago, a little disappointed that I did not experience that this time.

Can't rate Marche' highly enough. Many visits, many excellent meals. Menu changes, so always something new to try. Love the (small) portion sizes; don't need to take home a doggie bag to feel satisfied. The apple-compote cheese cake was spectacular; a "wow," for a hard to wow palette. Cheers.

This was our second meal at Marche in two months. Both times the wait to be served and between courses was incredibly long. Though the quality of the food is good, but the preparation needs improvement. Two of our entrees arrived very burned. Service was good but the wait made it seem less so.

Oysters fabulous. Also the wild chinook. Unfortunately, the halibut whic had been perfection the night before, was totally overcooked. You know what that means- dry and tasteless. My partner was reluctant to send it back.
Don’t serve halibut if you can’t cook it perfectly.

After a long day of driving with plan to stay overnight at Inn at the 5th, we had a very enjoyable dinner at Marche. Service was attentive, and we appreciated mindfulness of Covid precautions. The cornmeal crusted oyster starter with frisée was substantial to share. The soup of the day was a well-seasoned vegetarian celeriac soup. Seasonal duck with huckleberry served with braised chard and delicata squash panzanella was excellent. My husband enjoyed the Choucroute Garnie (sausage and pork loin platter). Unfortunately no room for dessert, but we kept the extra smoked hazelnuts to go!
