    Spectacular 60th anniversary dinner. The food was delicious especially the coq au vin with linguini. The flavors were amazing! The octopus appetizer was unique and really tasty. Loved the chocolate soufflé dessert-one of the best ever. Service was professional and as good as the food!!! We look forward to returning to this special place.

    Excellent food (especially the crab and bread), fine service. We were lucky to get a table with an excellent view of the busy kitchen. One area for improvement: we ordered the five glass wine pairing, which at $60 each was a good value but each time the wine was either previously poured in a glass or the server poured from a mini decanter directly into our glass. In other words, at no time did we actually see the bottles we were drinking from. This takes away some of the ambiance of the wines and can lead to doubt as to if we really got the wines we saw on the menu. A restaurant at this level should pour those wines right from the bottle. Please. One word of advice—parking was not to be found, despite the large lot and we had to valet park. Be prepared for that.

    Wifie and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary last night and MM delighted in every way. I highly recommend the taster's menu with the wine pairing. The food, service and ambiance were world class. The food was delicious and each dish was a work of art that I almost felt bad eating but certainly enjoyed it. The wine pairings were perfect and different than your average California wines. Most were French and our server whose name I forgot was just perfect. Attentive but never overbearing. A true professional. We are so happy we chose MM and look forward to celebrating with them again. Thank you!

    Our anniversary celebration. Everything was perfect except my husband's Filet Au Poivre which was tough. He did not finish it. However, the five-course tasting and wine pairing was absolutely perfect. Our friends had the braised short ribs and roasted lamb ribeye that they said was outstanding. Kelly was our server and did a great job. I will return, but it may be without my husband.

    We have been blessed to enjoy the creativity and hospitality of the Chefs Florent at Marche Moderne for many years at their former location, and now at Crystal Cove. Presentation of the 5 course tasting menu was exquisite. Lorisa's service, as always, was warm, attentive, and professional.

    I’m honestly not sure why this place deserves a Michelin star. The service was subpar. Our food was cold and undercooked. The wine was great which is what saved the meal. Would never return. So many other incredible restaurants to visit in the greater Los Angeles/ Orange County area.

    Service by Allen was Excellent. Short Ribs stole the show. Roasted Duck was great but there just was not enough of it. Skip the Beet Salad- the Caviar was minuscule amount. Bread was salty. Riesling was dry but Malbec was great. Pistachio dessert was pretty to look at but "so-so" to taste. Get there early-place was packed.

    I regretted choosing Marche Moderne for my birthday dinner. The restaurant didn’t do anything to make it special and on top of it, when we first sat on the patio, a rat came by us. We informed the staff and they just offered us any table inside. No manager came by to check on us and apologize for what had happened - no nice gesture, nothing! What a disappointment!
