Great service, food and ambiance. $45 per bottle corkage fee seemed a bit excessive as did some of the entree prices.

It was our eighth visit to Marche Modern. Unfortunately, the service was sub standard. Despite our reservation, we waited for half an hour before getting our table. After ordering, we waited twenty minutes before getting our first course. We were obliged to walk to the kitchen to get our bread. The main course came cold. The Cotes du Rhone that was recommended for pairing with the main course was mediocre table wine. The food was still really good. However, the experience was very disappointing.

Good place, nice service, food was just awesome. Dinner was set for 7:30 and I was seated right away. I felt very safe as all COVID security procedures were just perfect.

Marche’ Miderne never disappoints, which is why I always choose to have special occasion dinners with them whether it be a birthday celebration or a national holiday it is my first choice every time. Exceptional culinary creations and atmosphere that you never wanna leave and a matching wine and cocktail list that keeps you going. Chef Laurent and Amelia ❣️❤️💋🌹🥂🎈🎂

The meal was excellent, the frog legs superb. It is not often we get out lately, but going to Marche Moderne was a night to remember... If you like french food, this is worth looking into. Prices are high but reasonable.

We dined at Marche Moderne on Sunday night celebrating our wedding anniversary and I have to say it was one of the best experiences we have had at Marche. We love Marche but Sunday nights dinner was better than ever and of course server Dame made the difference. His knowledge of food and his recommendations made our dinning experience one of the best we have ever had.

Wish that Marché Moderne had a location near our home in Calabasas. Last night was the absolute best meal we have enjoyed in a very long time. The service was delightful! The menu was innovative and impeccably executed! The wine list was full of delicious options. The culinary world needs more of such a dining experience. Can’t thank you all enough

All around, a great special occasion experience. The food was wonderful and Dane was spot-on. The only true lament is the final cost. But that's to be expected.

Well, we were a little leery about returning to eat in the parking lot, BUT, after dark , under the twinkling lights, outside with umbrellas and heaters, it was almost charming...and certainly very pleasant. Of course, the food was as fabulous as usual, oysters ,fresh salads of the day, halibut, steakfrites, macarons...fantastic. Larissa and Josh were so attentive and "on point" with service and information...and just to catch up on what has been happening in the food industry. The three of us couldn't have been happier. Marche Moderne has survived and is flourishing throughout the pandemic!! Thank you!!
