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.

As usual, Marche food and service were first-rate. We like that the menu changes periodically so you have new items to try. After 14 years as customers, we continue to highly recommend the food and the service at Marche. Frank in Eugene, OR

My wife, Suzy Morgan, and I met at Marche on a blind date on January 5, 2005. We have been together ever since and we have had dinner at Marche every January 5 since that fist fateful meeting 15 years ago. This most recent evening was even more special because our waiter this past Sunday, Bill Hulings, was our waiter that first evening in 2005. As always the food was through-the-roof delicious, the service was stupendous and the atmosphere was totally cool. We'll be back next year!

Our visit this time was not what we expected. We sat at the chefs counter and had absolutely no interaction from any of the chefs or staff doing the cooking, which we were disappointed about. We enjoy watching them cook, however it was mainly about cleanup and yet they were going to be open for another 3-hours. The food was tasty but they mixed up our order. My wife ordered trout and then the waiter brought cod and tried to blame my wife instead of just admitting his error. Our experiences was definitely not what we have come to expect over the last 15 years dining at Marche. We will probably be back someday but it’s going to be a while.

This was our first time coming to Marche and it won't be our last. We had a great experience. Joseph was our waiter and took excellent care of us. We found him very knowledgeable re: wines, pairings, and all other aspects of the menu. The ambiance was pleasant and relatively quiet. The food was wonderful. From main course to appetizer, then dessert, we were not disappointed. We will make this our go to restaurant when we have guests and for special occasions. Or just because we want a night out. Thanks again for great evening!

Server Cody was very knowlable about wines and mixed drinks. I enjoyed his input. Menu items shown on line were much larger than those actually served. This is deceptive. Two of us of eight had the lamb duo and were not thrilled by it's small portions compared to what is shown on line. Private reserved room for our family Christmas time together was great.

We eat at Marche perhaps 2x a month. The food is excellent with seasonal changes that keep the choices different and lively! Service is first-rate with staff who remember who we are and generally what our preferences are. We always try to sit at the window so there is a nice feeling of openness being able to look out at the area.

This place never disappoints. The staff were so cordial and the food was just remarkable. Ever since our trip to Barcelona, we have become big fans of octopus. Their appetizer course was just delicious. It just melts in your mouth, not a hint of rubberiness, if there is such a word. The. To find out that we had to drive all the way to Eugene to experience oysters that are raised about a half hour from our house. And they were delicious! The bistro salad reminded us of a similar dish from southern France, complete with the surprise of a perfectly cooked poached egg. My husband had the trout, which was light and flaky, while I had the pork chop. Yes there was a bit of fat, but that’s to be expected. And who has the patience or creativity to use pomegranate as a garnish? So great. Then there was dessert. You can never go wrong with chocolate, especially a pot de creme served with two bite sized cookies. Ate it all without a regret. The waiter made suggestions of wine pairings, complete with tastings, and he did a masterful job.
We’ve eaten here before, but this last time was the best experience we’ve had, so it just keeps getting better. We’ll be back!

We had a very special evening at Marche, we ordered a number of different dishes including the prime rib, trout, a burger, we had oysters and their hazelnuts for appetizers . And everyone just loved it. we tried a few of their signature drinks and enjoy those as well, I particularly loved my holiday toddy. Prices were good , great value for the money. Location was really nice, staff was amazingly friendly. Some of us were from out of town and a few were locals . everyone thoroughly enjoyed their time there. thank you Marche for an amazing special night!

We had a lateish birthday dinner on a quiet Tuesday evening, yet everything was suitably low key festive. Mikael was, as always, a personable and attentive, as well as knowledgeable server. Everyone in the party was pleased with their meals and the drinks and dessert.

Our reservation was very last minute, but when we mentioned it was our anniversary our hostess really made an effort to find us a booth seating arrangement so we could sit side by side and away from the front door. Much more romantic! Our service was great, very knowledgeable and the pace of the meal was very relaxing. We had the beef filet and pork chops for dinner - both were outstanding. Would definitely come back and highly recommend for a special night out. Thanks for helping to make our anniversary special.
