Marche, located in Eugene, Oregon, opened in August 1998. The restaurant, which seats 80 guests, has an exhibition kitchen featuring a beautiful wood-fired oven. There is also a stylish bar and a large outdoor dining area, covered with awnings and umbrellas and surrounded by a garden of herbs and edible flowers. Marche takes its name from the French word for market – a word that describes our location in the bustling 5th street Market and more importantly, our philosophy of cooking. The menu is based on the foods one would find at a farmer’s market: fresh, seasonal, and regional. Marche is committed to using only those ingredients that are at their best, so our menu evolves as we move through the seasons of the year. Marche also believes in using the highest quality and most healthful ingredients available and to that end use organic, free range, and chemical free products. The culinary technique is French-based: intensely flavored and simply but beautifully presented.

First off this is my favorite place. Service is always top notch. Food top notch. My waiter tonight was exceptional. The only part that fell flat was desert. They are known for their icecream which I decided to try. What came out was a preschool , and melon scooper, prefrozen hard ball of iced over icecream that was not edible. I also ordered and after dinner drink, what came out was the smallest pour I have ever seen. They need to do better in this department

Marche is always a nice meal. The reason I didn't rate it higher is that the current menu was not quite as interesting this visit. Vegetarian items were more limited than usual and had more cream than some of their typical selections. My non-red meat eating husband ordered chicken which was very good. It came with braised greens which sounded safe but the greens included cubed salami or some other type of cured red meat not listed on the menu. My fish stew was excellent. Wine list has a reasonable variety but not a huge selection. Servers were very attentive. The restaurant does not pack people in beyond comfort capacity as sometimes happens and we appreciate that.

Had dinner here the night before and enjoyed it much more. The service was a lot less attentive for brunch and the meals took almost an hour to arrive. Brunch was good, but not great. I'll come back for dinner, but explore my options for brunch in the future.

We arrived 20 minutes early for our reservation, I told the hostess that her 7:15 was here , she didn't ask our name she said we were early and we could wait in the lounge. she then ignored us, at 7:30 I asked about a table and we were seated (there were many empty tables by then). The wait staff was attentive and the food spectacular as always.
It's a wonderful restaurant with great food.

I ordered the Lamb three ways. The plate itself was cold. The polenta was COLD, crunchy dry and the underneath was only marginally moist. The eggplant accompaniment was also cold - and yes! I tasted it. The plate had obviously been sitting out with the polenta already on it for at least an hour or more. The Lamb chop was cool to the touch, it had been cooked to my direction but had apparently been left to sit. The sausages were the only thing that was at a temperature that was edible.
My husband had the Roasted Salmon. He liked the taste but was quite disappointed in the size of the meal. The vegetables on the side were only marginally warm and overcooked.
We sat outside because the inside was VERY noisy. I was not pleased to be seated at a table without a tablecloth on it - seems this is par for sitting outside. Just because one chooses to sit outside does not mean that they want to eat on a metal table.
A very unappetizing meal and VERY disappointing for Marche. Sad

This is a fabulous, friendly, amazing place to dine with excellent food, even better wait staff that is right on in their service as being helpful but not smothering. I have enjoyed every time I have had the opportunity to eat in this delightful restaurant. Don't see what you are looking on the wine list? Ask, they probably have something you will enjoy. Even the non-alcoholic crafted drinks were refreshing and unique. Incomparable.

This was our first time dining at Marché, and the experience was exemplary by every measure.

The staff was courteous, prompt, attentive, and professional. Our waiter was knowledgeable about the food and drink offerings, and his suggestions for wine pairings were superb.

The restaurant was clean and tastefully decorated, providing a welcoming, cozy ambiance for our anniversary dinner.

The food was magnificent, living up to all the well-deserved praise Marché has received over the years.

To begin, we shared an order of delightfully peppery Mediterranean Olives, an excellent accompaniment to our aperitifs: the “vermouth of the moment” (Ransom Dry).

The BLT Tartine was a splendid appetizer, with its thick slices of toasted crusty bread slathered with zesty aioli and topped with generous cuts of buttery-rich and impossibly tender pork belly.

For my entrée: Tenderloin Steak Frites. The perfectly cooked steak was crowned with a velvety slab of red wine-garlic anchovy butter, which provided a unique flavor and textural compliment to the steak’s sumptuous, savory demi-glace. Even the pommes frites exceeded my expectations.

My wife's entrée, the Potato & Chive Gnocchi, was full of complex, unexpected, and masterfully balanced flavors and textures.

Finally, the light and delicious Lemon Crémeux (with a pleasantly bitter shot of espresso) was the ideal denouement to a spectacular meal that my wife and I agree was by far the best we have ever eaten.

Ambiance was good as was the starter. The chicken entree was quite over-cooked and was listed at $28.00.
We had a gift card which made the meal affordable. Would not eat there without one...

In the past this restaurant has been very good, both food and service. The service continued to be very good, however we waited for over 45 minutes for our food and the food was just fair. The eggs were undercooked on 2 of the 3 dishes, with the whites parts disagreeable. Thankfully one member at the table did not mind this, so we shifted the eggs to him. Sausage was not very warm. For the expense, i will choose another restaurant next time for sure and will let me friends know, so they can ask for breakfast differently if they still want to dine with you.

disappointing entrees which were pretty much "meh" Pickle plate was uninspired. My wife was accidentally brought the incorrect wine and rather than leaving it and bringing the correct, the waitperson said she could find someone else for it. My wife decided to just have what had been brought.

Best thing were the cocktails which were excellent.

Decor is dated.

Marche strikes me as a fine dining fish in what is a relatively small pool in Eugene. In a larger city, it would be considered completely unremarkable.

Although the food was prepared well, the service was AWFUL. I asked for our appetizer of OLIVES after ordering them 45 minutes prior. The salads that we ordered were served 1 hour after the olives. It seemed as if our server forgot that she had two hands as she brought out one item out at a time. I could go on and on. We were not the only patrons that were upset. The manager came to speak to the table behind me and it seemed that his I’m sorry’s did not satisfy them as they stated they would never return to this restaurant. I live in California and I would join the chorus of never again if I lived in Eugene.
