Casual Chic French-Inspired Market Dining
Located on the first floor of La Table, Marché exudes the vibrancy of a French market place. The casual feel makes it ideal for a working lunch, girls’ outing or afternoon cocktail and fresh seafood platter from the Raw Bar. At first blush, guests are taken in by the light, sunny décor and crisp service. Sit a while and you’ll see a constant flow of prosecco and rosé make their way to the stylish diners ordering Tomato Mozzarella Flatbread, Colossal Lump Crab Salad, Spiced Tuna Niçoise, Wild Mushroom Ravioli, sides of French Fries, and of course, items from our raw bar.

Small portions for the price! When you order a basket of pastry and get a small cinnamon roll and bread roll that is a rip off. Food good. Servers spend to much time visiting!

This is a beautiful restaurant and we have enjoyed ourselves the two times we have come. The staff are always very attentive and considerate, and the food delicious. We like there is the downstairs that its more relaxed, and the wonderful upstairs thats more refined ... nice to have to choices depending on your mood. Well done.

Had the Lobster Rigatoni. The lobster was very over cooked. I told the waiter and he didn’t really care. There are plenty of other dining spots to go at this price point that do care or don’t make this mistake.

Waited twenty minutes for brunch despite reservation.......service was great once seated. HRW menu did not have the best choices, but two out of our party went with it. The first course soufflé (which was more like a flan) was fabulous as was the crème brûlée. The avocado toast was disappointing- the avocado was watered down/thinned with something. Fries, however, were excellent. All of the food could have been warmer, but I understand the wait staff has to carry it downstairs!

Quaint, lovely but nice energetic vibe. Waiter was a little unsure about the menu so I am guessing this may have been his first week. He did return to update us on an item he incorrectly described. The chocolate soufflé was amazing

Yummy food, yet be prepared to wait for brunch if you visit on a Sunday (even with reservations).
The cheese soufflé with asparagus is divine. Other dishes are scrumptious.
I would recommend this restaurant, but maybe not for an outdoor brunch. If you’re under the fans that’s fine, but if you’re out near the front it’s not ideal. I think the problem might be mediated if fans were added to the front section of the outdoor area.

We have dined at La Table many times, And have always enjoyed the food tremendously. However, the last two times we have visited we have been seated and then ignored for quite a while. This last time we waited a full 25 minutes and never had our waiter come by (we chose not to seek him out to see how long we would be kept waiting). Eventually we simply got up and let the hostess know that no attempt had been made to serve us, and left the restaurant. We have some good memories dining there, but will not be returning.
