    We celebrated my birthday in our favorite booth with my favorite server, Larissa. We shared a Manhattan A L’Orange and a special appetizer of Sepia or cuttlefish with a puréed cauliflower. Both were delicious. We also had the Coq Au Vin and Lamb Shank which were memorable. Generous portions to take home.

    An enjoyable dining experience. Our Waiter Ryan was very knowledgeable about the dishes and was friendly and efficient. The dishes we had the Thai lobster and the clam alfredo was very tasty. Complex flavors in all the dishes. We did feel that the dishes could be elevated slightly for a Michelin restaurant. Also slowing down the pace slightly would be more relaxed. Giving diners a chance to catch their breath is always the sense of luxury one feels in fine dining. The specials menu is quite a lot to take in so slowing down that verbal iteration would be helpful. Lovely vibrant ambience. Diners were definitely enjoying themselves. The decor is modern and cosy at the same time. Great evening

    I recently came here with my husband for my birthday dinner. It was our first time dining here. I got the 5 course dinner and my husband ordered a main entree, a salad and two appetizers. The food portions weren't large, but they still managed to be very filling. We were full before we even got our entrees! Our server was thoughtful enough to suggest he could see if he could cancel my husband's entree, which the kitchen was able to do. Everything was very tasty and innovative. We especially loved my little prawn broth, the scallops and the octopus. You can't go wrong starting off with bread either.

    We had many enjoyable dinners at Marche Moderne when it was in the old location. In its present location, not so much. If you are expecting the same level of French Bistro character and charm you might be disappointed. The noise level was extremely distracting, the place too busy for dining pleasure. In spite of that I admit our server did a fantastic job, but there are too many sub-servers involved, who come to your table without knowing what you’ve just discussed with the last one. The steak frites were excellent, as was the dessert, but the risotto was made with mushrooms preserved in vinegar, instead of fresh produce, and the taste of vinegar was overwhelmingly unpleasant.

    We love the food at Marché Moderne especially the delicious bread. Marche is our favorite restaurant to celebrate birthdays and special occasions and for dinner with friends . Unfortunately, the service is disappointing. It is extremely slow and hard to get the attention of our waiter just to request a cocktail and order anything. I hope the management corrects this problem because we adore the food.

    Fantastic restaurant! A fairly priced tasting menu. I’ve had the tasting menu 4 times at Marche, 3 times it was wonderful, once it was lackluster. The wine pairing was just okay. The red and dessert wine was wonderful, the white wine was interchangeable. I would get 2 self selected glasses of what you truly desire. Bread and salted butter is great! Bravo for Marche.

    We go to Marche Moderne often, not only because it’s located in our neighborhood, but because it’s one of the best restaurants in Orange County, we are just lucky to live close by this place. The food last night, and every night we have been there, was fantastic. Their servers have been working at Marche for long time and they are invested in providing the best experience. Last night we had a great server and it was the case every single time we ate there. We love food at Marche as much as I like serving staff. They are always positive, welcoming, just great!

    Only complaint is the "necessity" of valet parking in a mall! This is so unnecessary to try to squeeze an extra "dime" out of you at a restaurant that doesn't exactly charge "mall prices"!

    Made reservations about a month or two in advance and got seated at a small table near the wall in the midst of traffic. Took forever to order and the server seemed to favor her regulars or people who seemed high in money over helping us. Food wasn’t good, chicken was burnt and we didn’t even finish our meals or hardly touched our entrees and had a 180dollar bill. The noise level was loud…could barely hear the person from across the table. We just don’t need to return.
