Superb in all respects. We were lucky to have dinner there before the great shutdown.

Another wonderful dinner with friends at our FAVE! Jeffrey was a wonderful server, as usual, and the food was spectacular, as always.

I just learned that Marche will be closed until further notice due to the Covid19 crisis... that was heartbreaking for my wife and me, but completely understandable. We can't wait to come back as soon as Marche opens again. Jeffrey was a wonderful server, as usual, and the food was spectacular, as always.

Marche Moderne continues to have unique and most delicious appetizers and main dishes. It never disappoints, we are always treated very well and feel it's a special occasion with every meal. The beef tartare is still a favorite as well as the amazing short ribs. We enjoyed the herring and Hamachi Crudo as well.

This was easily the best dining experience I've ever had in Orange county. We relied heavily on the specials and recommendations of our server to concoct a tasting menu of sorts for our 5th anniversary will exquisite results.

Great date night and I truly couldn’t have imagined a better meal. The Thursday night prix fix menu was outstanding. The only thing we didn’t like was the duck fat fries they just tasted like potatoes nothing special. Otherwise a meal to remember!

Loved this restaurant but very disappointing tonight. It took us 15 mins or more to get a server. Water came and than NOTHING. restaurant was empty and yet very difficult to get a table. Brought friend for the first time and terribly disappointed. Food didn't have much flavor.

I booked as a special occasion for my partner's 40th birthday and let the restaurant know. I notified via the online booking form, as well as calling just to make sure. Upon arrival, the front reception said happy birthday which was nice! The food was good and the service was attentive. We spent over $400. The table directly next to us was also celebrating a birthday, and the waiters brought them out a small birthday cake at the end of the meal. I was hoping for the same for my partner, but when our desserts came out there was nothing. It was such a shame, as I really hoped there would be an acknowledgement at the end of the meal...they just dropped off the check. We paid and still tipped generously, but wont be going back. Not worth it for the money, it didnt feel particularly special or memorable.

The chef and his team continue to wow us with idealized, elevated French Bistro food and very attentive service. Make it a point to get here for a special occasion and then, again, as soon as possible after that for any occasion. Kudos.
