Not ideal but still very nice place

The restaurant is definitely the best place to dine in the mall. Quality of food is very good, We really liked short ribs and foie gras. The only problem is the service, it is slow and could be better.

We always go to MM for at least one of our birthdays or our anniversary because the entire experience is always so excellent. I had the tasting menu as a special treat and every course was delicious. In our years of having meals here, we have only been disappointed once. We appreciate the quiet buzz and friendly, understated service, and... More

We celebrated our anniversary at lunch. Each had mushroom soup, rather thin and strangely tasteless. We usually love any kind of mushroom soup. Husband had the filet - expensive but tender and delicious. I had the spontinee menu steak which tasted good until I tried his! The pomme frites on his were substituted by just OK mashed potatoes-a big disappointment... More

I take every chance I get to dine at this restaurant. The food is always excellently prepared and the service is attentive. I find the regular lunch menu options a bit limited, but the fixed price lunch menu always has something that is appealing and a bargain,

Three of us met for dinner at this quiet restaurant located on the third floor of South Coast Plaza just adjacent to Nordstrom. The wine list held many delicious choices, and the extensive cheese list did, too. We each ordered starters and entrees which we shared. Everything was exquisite. Our waiter was very professional, friendly, and attentive. The food and... More

We enjoyed the opportunity to dine at Marche Moderne for my daughter's birthday. The restaurant is on the third floor of South Coast Plaza on the penthouse floor next to St. John. We sat in an atrium area which was very nice. For appetizers we had pomme frites (birthday girl chooses) and a selection of cheeses. I wouldn't expect ketchup... More

Yes, it's good. Even though they didn't have the items on the menu (moules frites and ahi tartare) that were posted on their on line menu, the meal we had was excellent. I had oysters and a very delicious coq au vin. My wife had the set menu, with corn soup, duck confit, and coconut bread pudding. Add in a... More

We've enjoyed Marche Modern for many years and have never been disappointed. They care about their ingredients and the quality of their preparation. Service is always impeccable. This is the place to go for French-inspired food in the area.

This is my very favorite foodie site in OC. To share a glass of champagne & the fixed price lunch with a girlfriend at Marche is my idea of heaven. And no place has such a great selection of cheeses for dessert.
