Returned again and enjoyed this restaurant just as much as previously

Very good and varied menu. Consistently well prepared and tasty food. Wonderful wine list and reasonable corkage policy. Recently came to celebrate a colleague's tenth work anniversary. We tried different entrees--fish and beef. Everybody was satisfied with all aspects of the meal and... read more

Marche is our special place to celebrate an occasion. Since they change their menu regularly we thought it appropriate to add this review. We were seated at a very nice elevated table on the south inside and I had a great view of the kitchen and that was fun. We started with cocktails and my wife had Fleur de Provence... More

I was looking for a new fave or "go to" restaurant in OC. Sadly, I didn't find it on this visit. I've heard co workers have visited so I gave it a try. Food was good. I wouldn't rate it best. The appetizer was caviar and eggs. Served in a carton of egg crate with rough edges. Literally the grayish... More

Orange County is not on most gastronomes short list as an eating destination. But, like the ol' Guide Michelin says with a one star review, if you are in the area you had better check out the great Marche Moderne. Helmed by French chef Florent Marneau and his wife Amelia, this place has the goods. I have been eating here... More

Enjoyed the Spontane' prix fixe lunch for $25. Portion sizes were perfect and the best part of the experience was our server Oscar!

I like their food. Their service is not really up there. They bring all the food together with the appetizers. Oh well, hopefully they will improve the service because their food it is not cheap.

Arrived without a reservation on a Monday night. Very busy. Ended up seated next to a works Xmas party. Not too noisy and they were having fun. Come every year according to our English server. It was white truffle night. Tried one of the special dishes - excellent. Otherwise the caviar and egg starter was interesting if a bit rich... More

After a day of shopping at South Coast Plaza this is a perfect ending. We love the steak tartare and have gotten each time we come here. One caveat though is that I wouldn't say it's very kid friendly. One time long ago we decided to bring our child and it was the one negative experience. She didn't like the... More

Don't let the location of this restaurant fool you. This is not mall food and is in fact one of the best restaurants in Southern California. Excellent French food and even better desserts. Ask for specific directions where to park if eating late...will make leaving the mall much easier. Always have phenomenal service

My guests and I had a most delicious dinner, drinks, and an excellent service from Oscar and Nadine. Over the years, I have enjoyed my favorite Maine lobster salad for lunch. Now, I had the delicious warm Maine lobster with garlic over linguine pasta for dinner. My guests enjoyed the other delicious dishes: Foie Gras, Beef Cheek, Maine Scallops, Mushroom... More
