Food was so great. Salmon appetizer with mustard ice cream was insanely great!
The ambiance at this restaurant is perfect. From the great valet staff to the servers and their support staff the evening was perfect. I have no comments on areas that they would need improvement

An exquisitely planned, crafted, and delivered Valentine weekend fixed meal. The Marneaus have raised the bar yet again. It is so wonderful to have Marche open and serving, with all appropriate precautions; we truly missed their professionalism, artistry, and enthusiastic creations.

Went to Marche Moderne on Saturday, February 6th at 6 PM. We had a table inside and enjoyed Oysters, Lobster, Shrimp, Salmon, Dirty Martini's & Wine. Everything from the minute we arrived to leaving a few hours later was absolutely amazing. I am so glad they are open again!! Can't wait to go again!!!

My niece and I had an amazing evening. Larissa took care of us with perfect recommendations and attentive, but not overbearing service. The pork tenderloin preparation was the BEST I have ever had. Hands down the best!

We always love our dinner at Marche. The service, and food are always excellent. We enjoyed the delicious bread, octopus, fig salad and sashimi for appetizers. They were excellent. The Lobster special was great but the portion was too small for the cost. The steak and short rib dishes were delicious, as well. We look forward to our next visit.

My wife and I went here for our 23rd wedding anniversary, first time at this restaurant. We are no strangers for French food, our best meal ever was probably at Chevre D'or in Eze, France on one of our European vacations. This meal was easily as good. Larissa (server) was really great (friendly, helpful, great menu coach), recommending a fantastic French White based on our taste, and our food choices (fish) were the best. My wife fancies herself a connoisseur of scallops and I caught her taking a picture of the presentation of the dish. She loved the taste and after she shared with me I enthusiastically concurred. We will go again and I've recommended it to a bunch of friends already.
