About 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.

From the start service was spot on. Lovely relaxed but upscale vibe. Wait person exceptional. It was only me but I was never made to feel weird. Never rushed, was given good table. Oysters the best I’ve ever had. Foie Gra amazing...Duck not so much. It was raw and I couldn’t slice it. I brought it to their attention they replaced but should have offered a comp of something. All in all almost a 5 for me but a 4 for main dish

Our party of 7 was accommodated in a large but cozy booth in the bar area. The drinks and appetizers were outstanding and our entrees only more so. The waiter always anticipated our next request. My 89 year old mother had a fabulous time. Marche is always the first restaurant I come to when visiting Eugene. Merci beaucoup, Marche!

Typically outstanding food and reliable service. The first part of our meal, the server was attentive and helpful but after the entrée arrived he was non-existent. We then asked for a dessert menu which arrived from another table runner. Then our server finally returned (after 10 mins) only after we proactive said we were ready to order dessert. We ordered something simple (two individuals ordered a single scoop of chocolate ice cream along and one person had the apple crisp) thinking it would be fast/easy. At the 15-minute mark of waiting, we inquired about our desserts and the server was visibly defensive and replied "There were several orders of oysters from other tables that needed to be served. It looks like your dessert is ready now." Really? We always get better service on the Bistro side of the house so I guess we will skip the regular dining room in the future -- too bad.

Great food and service...Menu changes with the seasons...Choice between full menu and bar menu...Nice, small outdoor patio dining in summer and when weather is warm & dry. Very good wine steward for advice. We probably dine at Marche once a month so we get to have their seasonal menus and look forward to the new items. Excellent mussels with seasonally changing "sauce". Highly recommend Marche.

I have a very sensitive palette and desire mouth melting dishes. We decided to choose the grilled lamb Trio and the chicken paillard for our main courses; and I chose the grilled brussel sprout salad before dinner. These choices were based on inquiring what the waitress suggested as well as myself being gluten and dairy intolerable. I must say each dish was delectable, the chef prepared these dishes beautifully and they tasted incredible. I would strongly recommend this restaurant and those dishes for a very flavorful but not over seasoned dining experience.

As above, the service was excellent, and we had a back room all to ourselves which was awesome, as the restaurant is a bit noisy. The food was good, but not great. The appetizers we selected were interesting in that they were a bit different, but I didn't think tasted that great. However, other diners in our group really loved their entrees and the appetizers. I also didn't think the wine by the glass selection was that great. I like a more minerally white, which I didn't find. I had the black cod entree, the ones that loved their entrees had lasagne, squid ink pasta, and lamb dishes. Also one of the guests ordered the foi gras for her dinner entree!

I always enjoy coming to Marche...it is a super meeting place and reliable for decent food and lovely atmosphere....this past experience was not my favorite for the Gyros sandwich...did not like the chunky lamb sausage with minimal yogurt sauce and the red spicy sauce too much with spicy sausage....a nice salad accompanied with the sandwich would have been preferable over the French fries....and I do think it was overpriced as was the ginger beer. You ask for my remarks and this what I have to offer.....poor choice for lunch...The bread was too heavy for the sandwich too...in my opinion.

The food and service were both outstanding, as always. The food offerings are creative and unique. The use of herbs and spices is well balanced and skillful. There is a tendency in this area to smother everything in garlic. Marche does not make this mistake. Thanks for another thoroughly pleasant dining celebration!

The food was good. About Equal to what you would get from Cafe Soriah or King Estate Winery. Nothing spectacular. The service was on the same par. Friendly, courteous and knowledgeable. Unfortunately my pork chop was almost half fat, fat meat.. very unfortunate.. Price wise, this restaurant was not equal to the quality indicative of the price of the meal. This would be a restaurant I might recommend to friends coming into town for sessional dinning.

My go-to restaurant when I visit Eugene. Always good food and nice ambiance. Menu can be somewhat limited but we can always find something interesting. Check out the bar menu as well. A little pricey but worth it especially in a city like Eugene where higher end options are very limited.

We were seated immediately upon arrival (we had reservations) and enjoyed a lovely table. Sean was our server and he was outstanding!! We give him 10 stars. Also, he was mentoring a new server (female), sorry I don’t remember her name; however, she was excellent as well. Food was delicious and served in a timely manner. Good job and keep up the fantastic work! Kudos!!!

Four of the Five of us had a good meal. The cod was over poached, almost watery and served on way too much greens that had too much vinegar used to season them.............. that was disappointing as we usually enjoy Marche.

One of the better restaurants in Eugene. Normally excellent food with fresh ingredients. However, the food this time was overly seasoned. The steak would have been better without a sauce. The trout salad had too much creme and the pickled onions were over powering. The gnocchi was not traditional. It was served in a very small casserole with 3 huge dumplings that were not light like the usual gnocchi recipes. The mussels were large and fresh, but the broth was overpowering with liqueur. A basic wine and garlic with butter would have been better.

There is nobody else in Eugene that gets food like Stephanie. We had breakfast and two lunches theee in 26 hours and I only wish we had dinner there too. Nothing at Marche is overwrought the bread/butter at breakfast was sublime as was the cappuccino ‘s only had to send the one at the 2nd breakfast back as the lack of foam rendered it a latte. The soup the burger the fries the fruit plate all very good. If I am ever back I will only eat there.

Lovely restaurant with waitstaff that is knowledgeable of menu and wines. Had the wild boar ragu and gnocchi. The gnocchi was not the standard potato pillows (which I do love) and the waiter told me in advance. They were lovely--a bit different but still gnocchi. Very well seasoned and worked well with the boar ragu. Waiter suggested two different reds and allowed me to taste both. While it is a 'white tablecloth' restaurant, it is not stuffy or overpriced. It was just the kind of dinning experience one wants and expects from this level of restaurant. When I am back in Eugene, I will definitely eat there again.

Attended for a special occasion, but there were a couple of instances of impoliteness on the part of a person who might have been the manager and the waiter, which put a damper on the group’s enjoyment. Some members of the group were quite offended.

I had the squid ink spaghetti (which I wouldn't recommend unless you want to tell your friends that you ate squid ink spaghetti), Oysters on the half shell (which were delicious & highly recommended). My wife had the Gnocchi in Wild Boar sauce, a salad & some kind of dessert & she enjoyed everything. We only eat in the dining room on special occasions otherwise we usually just sit in the bar. The wait staff are friendly & polite & the chefs are professional & obviously take pride in their work. Also the ambiance is worth mentioning - cozy with dark wood paneling, a big open kitchen & fleur de lis tile in the bar make you feel like you ducked in off the "rue" in Paris. :) Definitely Marche is on our short-list of our favorite places to eat in Eugene!

Outstanding food and service. We had fried chicken livers with jalapeño jam and a steamed mussel salad. The chicken and pork chop (perhaps the best ever served us) were perfectly roasted on a wood fire, as were the carrot side. An apple-hazelnut crisp with caramel ice cream wrapped it up. We had a lively conversation with our waiter about the source and treatment of the pork (hazelnut-fed hogs), and all the staff was attentive and warmly welcoming. We're from the Olympic Peninsula, but will hope to return some day for another wonderful dining experience.

A quick trip to Eugene for "a dinner and a show" wouldn't be complete without the dinner being Marche`. From the warm greeting at the door to the attentive service at our table the staff there excels. Our drinks were delicious, the fresh oysters sublime and our meal was prepared perfectly and delicious. Always a special occasion to dine at Marche`. See you next time!

The ambiance was lovely and the service was good aside from a the waiter that seemed very rushed and frenetic.

The food was less than par for what one would expect at a ‘fine-dining’ restaurant. The fish was tough, over cooked and obviously thawed after being frozen and the pork had no flavor.

Again, great venue and very kind and polite service, but certainly no worth spending $150.00 for 2 people for a special occasion.
