Based on a previous delightful lunch, my husband made reservations & explained at that time & on the night of the dinner, that this was a special dinner for our son & his wife's birthday. We were sat at a table half way out & half way in the restaurant, where we were treated as if we were not there!... More

This used to be my favorite place in the area, especially for lunch when shopping at the mall. My last two visits have been disappointing. We requested Gluten Free and bread was on the cheese plate. They offered eight cheese choices but when we selected 4, were given bread & three with one repeat because they were out. Should have... More

Food and service exceptional unfortunately it mentioned our 48th anniversary. To my disappointment they gave us a small birthday candle on the desert we paid for!! Not what one expects when celebrating a special occasion.

We came here for a special occasion and we were very happy. We ordered the charcuterie, beet salad, bone marrow, octopus, and fish of the day. The charcuterie was excellent. It was a large portion of nicely cured meats and there was sufficient bread to go along with the meat. The beet salad was also very good. The beets were... More

Excellent French cuisine. Heavy on the price but a real culinary experience. The menu is different every time you go there for lunch

I last wrote about March Moderne in 2011. Since then I have visited occasionally, with the most recent visit in the last week. The hostess desk remains as terrible as ever, still trying to pawn off the worst tables in the restaurant on us. The service was okay, but nothing special. What has always made this restaurant worth the visit... More

Marche moderne is always excellent in every way. The servers are efficient, pleasant, and attentive. The food is varied and always very good. Their $25 3 course lunch is unbeatable in terms of the price quality ration.

Just back from a lovely evening at Marche Moderne. It is such a joy to dine in an establishment that still understands the art of dining. The menu is diverse and fit for foodies, services is attentive and educated and the noise level is moderate so that you can enjoy the company of those you are with. Dinner is delicious... More

I wrote a review of this restaurant over a year ago in which I complained about the service. I remember that night. I have been back at least 5 times since that meal and everything was perfect. Of course, now I have a favorite table and waiter. :-))) The food continues to amaze and delight as do the prices. But... More
