Everything was amazing! Marché Moderne never disappoints...
Everything we ordered was delicious and the service was top-notch
Very good waiter
We did not have the best experience at Marche Moderne for the following reasons: 1)Our waiter forgot to bring our order of oysters. When our main meal came without the oysters, we asked about it and the waiter said he thought we were "just asking about it and didn't realize we actually wanted it as part of our appetizers." He asked if we wanted it as part of our main meal and we declined. It would not have been good with our main meal. 2) We kept having to ask for water, yet it didn't come. Only after the third time did we get water. 3)We ordered the "special dessert of the day--chocolate gateau" which, when it came out, was decorated with a red heart. After taking a few bites, we realized that it was clearly leftover chocolate cake from the day before, which was Valentine's Day. Marche Moderne is usually a wonderful dining experience. Friday, February 15th was not. Expensive and disappointing experience.
Food was amazing! We loved our experience and can not wait to come back. 10/10
I brought my girlfriend here for Valentine’s day and it was an overall great experience. From the start to the end the staff was very attentive. They had a prefix menu with plenty of options to choose from. The food was very delicious!
Food and service was rushed. Total disappointment. Completely overpriced for the experience.
as always - the food is excellent and the service outstanding.
Yes, we love Marche Moderne. It is our favorite restaurant, would recommend it to anyone. The food is the best.
The food was delicious, the service exceptional, I will go back tomorrow if I could. The quality and presentation were amazing.
Went here for my 50th birthday. The starter steak tartare and charcuterie board was vey nice, but I had oredered their special of the day which was scallop and shrimp on a bed of red bell pepper ratatouille base.... very disappointing!
This was yet another wonderful dining experience at Marche Moderne. The cuisine is modern French, drawing on a number of diverse influences from around the world. I love the octopus starter and the oysters are always of the highest quality. The featured chicken dishes are some of the best I've had anywhere. Be sure to save room for dessert, because these offerings are as delicious as they are beautifully presented. Service is friendly and knowledgable and the decor is smart yet comfortable. We are lucky to have such a great restaurant right here in South Orange County. I look forward to returning to Marche Moderne as soon as possible.
AMAZING food, presentation & customer service. Our table created our own Marche Surf & Turf meal by ordering the Scallops & Marinated Beef Rib... OMG!!!! Scallops melted like butter in our mouth & the Rib served table side by our ROCKING server, Jacob was so tender we didn't need a knife to enjoy it. Merci beaucoup Marche Moderne for the magnifique experience :) We'll be BACK for the Napoleon Pastry (Fri-Sun)!!!
Food was excellent as was service. Pretty expensive but great for a special occasion.
Fantastic! All around great service, cuisine and ambiance.
Great Restaurant for that "Special Occasion". Best was the service and food.
I have been many times, but I brought friends for their first time and they loved it as much as I always do. The environment is elegant, the service is top-notch (though this time, a bit slow), and the food is consistently exceptional.
Had a nice private table in a nook. Service was warm and attentive but not stuffy. Food was excellent tasting, creative and well presented. Will be back.
Beyond over the top outstanding in all aspects- service, ambiance, food, fun!
I visited with 5 friends. Restaurant is well designed. Server was excellent. Marrow dish was way too cloying with a too rich sauce dominating any taste of the marrow. Very disappointing. Suckling pig tasted great. Coq au vin was also a little overly rich with non of the other ingredients able to shine through. Scallops perfectly cooked, but once again the sauce was a little too rich. Lemon tart tasted fine but the consistency of the lemon was not firm enough and ended up too runny. Try Freddy Giradet’s recipe.
This is one of the finest restaurants in Orange County
What an exceptional experience. We are foodies and just love high levels of service, quality innovative food, and a wonderful atmosphere. We experience lunch at MM in South Coast Plaza, however this was our first time at the new location. Every bite of food we at from the octopus to the lamb to the filet to the scallops were to die for. My mother was in heaven for this birthday meal. Further, the dessert was bar none a 12 out of 10 in quality. Kudos. This is our new favorite special night out. So glad we have this in Orange County!
it's always a pleasure to dine at Marche Moderne. We enjoyed several of the seafood dishes, all were excellent. I tend to order some of the same items every time - but how can you beat perfection?
Fabulous as always
Excellent!! Superb,fantastic, the best restaurant in Orange Country!!
Excellent spot for a special occasion or date night
So glad Marche Moderne is back! Service was outstanding --attentive, friendly, gracious and helpful. We started with a delicious charcuterie and cheese platter. The Asian Pear salad is the most balanced, complex and delicious salad I've had in ages. My husband had the scallops, I had sea bass and my kids had Coq au Vin. All delicious. It was very, very loud when we dined. I'd request a booth next time in the hope it would absorb some sound. Would love to dine on the patio when the weather warms up!
Great place for an anniversary dinner!
Felt other patrons with more local "Gravitas" pre-empted better seating
Good wine selection, but with a high corkage fee, obvious they're pushing higher price point wines
Our favorite place, usually!
This night it felt like we were getting the bums rush... check too soon and We were not even close to making
We seldom take a long time to eat, but we both felt rushed and uncomfortable...
Wonderful food. Excellent service. We were a little concerned about the early reservation but we enjoyed how quiet the restaurant was at first. We had a great table. We enjoyed watching the rest of the diners fill the restaurant. We were concerned we might feel rushed because of the next seating but we weren’t rushed at all and we had a nice leisurely dinner.
Outstanding dinner... great food, great service, awesome atmosphere. One of our favorite restaurant.
I visited Marche Moderne many times at their previous location. This was my first time at their new location. Our party had a wonderful dinner and the service was impeccable. Unfortunately, due to the design of the main room, the volume was difficult. This was made worse (sadly) by one table that was drinking heavily and "enjoying themselves" loudly. In fact, there were people who asked to be seated at another table due to the ruckus.
I do not blame the restaurant for this. We understand there isn't much you can do but I did want to make you aware that the design of the place exacerbates this problem. Perhaps some re-design with baffling? Until then, we'll try the patio area next time. And, rest assured, we will be back.
Marche is always awesome!!
Love the scallops and the honey macaron was to die for.
The service was very good and the food is beautiful and delicious . The chairs are very comfortable. This is a special occasions place.
Fantastic food, superb service, and a menu to satisfy almost everyone.
Amazing. Favorites included Hamachi Appetizer, Duck Liver Pate, Curried Cauliflower Soup, SalmonTrout Entree, Truffle Ice Cream Dessert! Can't Wait to dine there again when I am in the area again!
