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.

I went on Friday 2/21 around 5:30pm. The place was lightly populated at that time. First, let's talk parking. There is good parking available. The lot is on the South side and as free for patrons. Around that there are metered spaces that are free starting at 6pm. The place is easy to access. The decor is quite impressive and really good for dates. In other words, a nice ambiance. The staff service is fantastic. All the staff did really darn well. There are 3 seating areas: booth, table, and counter. I picked a table and the seats were comfortable. The tables are nicely spaced out and of comfortable height. The wine selection is impressive. Not for its size, but definitely for its quality. (More on the drinks later.) The menu is a decent selection. I picked the Ling Cod. It came in good time. This was a strange meal. You don't typically see Ling Cod in a red sauce with capers and potatoes. But it was very good. The sauce overpowers the cod for sure. It's a strange choice of proteins for the sauce. It's unusual and wonderful. Now... back to those drinks. They really skimp on the booze. I ordered 2 margaritas and they were $23 each. So they were overpriced AND under powered. The total bill for me was $80.

The place is nice. But all in all, I won't be back.

The place is wheelchair accessible. Leave the kids with a sitter. They won't appreciate it. GF and vegan dishes are available. But the aroma of beef is present. (Many vegans don't like that.)

We love Marche and find any excuse to eat there. We love “Le Bar” for more casual dining, the restaurant for special dinners and weekend brunch. The staff is so professional and friendly and not only have we never had a bad meal there, we’ve always been delighted. I love the style of the restaurant, it feels like I’ve stepped into Paris. Just love this place.

Spent our 15th anniversary/Valentines dinner here. It's becoming a yearly thing lately. Another amazing dinner. Blood orange margaritas were so good. Our waiters service was perfect. I forgot to ask for a booth but they had one waiting for us. Thank you for another wonderful evening.

Marche is up to its very high standard with new dishes for the winter. The cabbage around boudin blanc with black truffles and celery root purée appetizer was fantastic. It probably cannot be on the menu very long, just during the winter Oregon truffle season. The squash with cumin soup and the pear salad with candied walnut were also wonderful. The gnocchis with crab and brandy sauce was rich, unctuous and delicious. Stuffed, we took the dessert home to eat the next day. This preview of the St Valentines Day cheesecake garnished with citrus and lemon curd was fabulous with our light dinner at home the next day. Go! Eat! There will be a new seasonal menu soon.

I reserved a table at Marche for a family reunion of sorts. Just five of us, who see each other only a couple of times a year. We came early and stayed late. We enjoyed three delicious courses, cocktails, wine, coffee and never looked up from our lovely experience! Best meal out in years.

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.
