Always enjoy this great Bistro! where else can you get, prompt attentive serice, a delicious menu full of choices, full bar, and a nice, tight wine list? Jackie wasn't drinking, so the woman behind the bar made up a "mocktail" for her, and then came by to make sure it was what was needed. And where else can you get an individual caviar service? We had the quinelles, and the pheasant; both so good!
Thanks guys; see you soon!

A friend recommended this bistro to me and I finally was able to try it. It was delightful. Everything you expect in an authentic French bistro. The restaurant team was welcoming, professional and provided excellent service. The food was very good. Very french! I loved the fresh french bread and the dover sole. My adult son tried wild boar for the first time and he loved it. Overall a gem in La Jolla. We can't wait to return.

French offerings, as you can surmise from the name. We three had a variety: wagyu beef, scallops, and salmon, all in an excellent veggie-sauce, plus a so-so pate and ratatouille. The other two enjoyed the dessert (I didn't eat it).

I loved sitting at the bar after a long day of feasting for thanksgiving.

Our server was amazingly knowledgeable about wine and that
was very special. He also made us two cocktails that were fabulous.

We went for the prix fixe Thanksgiving dinner. Was my first time having Wagyu beef - delicious in the red wine sauce with fall veg and potatoes. The turkey was also very good. Appetizers - lobster bisque and escargots were flavorful and filling. The dessert tarts were tasty, but the pastry shells seemed overly baked (very hard to cut through). Service was excellent. I would definitely eat here again!

We were so looking forward to our dinner at Bistro du Marche. Although I received my favorite table, the service, atmosphere and experience became very chaotic shortly after arrival. I watched as seated guests at the neighboring tables waited impatiently for service. It was disturbing to have the staff continuously checking to see if we had finished our meals seeming to suggest that our time was up. The buser, at this fine establishment, went so far as to stack all of our dishes and silverware in his arms, as though he worked in a diner! Afterward when I mentioned this to the Maitre'd, he said every night was like Friday night.

Hello Jenfa; We want to apologize for the service issues that you have endured during your dinner. Although our team is very well trained, there could be an evening during which the service is more hectic than usual. This is rarely happening. Our staff work really hard covering indoors and outdoors and delivering the best service possible. As I mentioned above, this can happen, please be aware that it is completely fortuitous. However our deep apologies are presented to you and your guests.

All the dishes & wine 🍷 were perfection itself…I am still dreaming about it - MERCI BEAUCOUP ❣️❣️❣️❣️

Our pleasure JaroslavaS. Thank you for your visit and for sharing your enjoyment with us. The tenderloin is a very tender meat that we age onsite, I imagine that you have enjoyed dipping the French fries in the sauce "au poivre noir"... Merci mille fois!
