This is my favorite restaurant in the O.C. It is charming in a relaxed way. The wine list and service is top notch. My favorite octopus salad is the best.

Food and service is always fantastic....one of the finest restaurants in Orange County! My wife and I have had quite a few meals here and are always amazed at something unique and delicious with each meal! Marche is the definition of "fine" dining!

Visited Marche Moderne for a lunch while was shopping. Nice ambiance, good food, good service. Nothing "wow" about that:)

An OC staple for fine rustic French cuisine. The Jidori chicken prepared in a tanjine is divine. I always swap the roasted potatoes for pomme frites. Excellent wine list and fine cheese/ charcuterie selection. The brussel sprouts are a 10. If you are solo, dining at the bar is great. Also a great spot for special occasion with group.

I take every chance I get to dine at this restaurant. The fixed price lunch menu is a bargain, and the choices on it are as well prepared as any of the a la carte items. Everything about this restaurant is top notch.

Elegant, yet relaxed. French food at its best.. accessible and impeccably prepared. $25 lunch is a terrific deal. We have eaten here many times, and we always walk away talking about the food and how good it is.

Nice hostess seated us upon arrival, even though we were 10 minutes early. Quiet, round table for two. Our server LYLE: Fantastic - warm, gracious, professional, friendly and very educated about the menu. In tune to his diners. Dinner was very well paced. Make reservations (they are busy) and ask for LYLE because he will make your experience memorable. He... More

While out of town and shopping at South Coast Plaza, the sales people at Louboutin suggested we grab lunch at Marche Moderne. It's in a mall so our expectations were not very high. This was one of the best meals we have had in a long time! Great variety, super fresh ingredients, superior service, amazing people watching and beautiful ambiance.... More

A classic French restaurant, sitting on top of South Coast Plazza, great food and great service. Pricy and well worth the tab... They have an excellent charcuterie plate (seasoned meat, traditional fare in French bistro). We also enjoyed the duck confit with duck breast, perfectly cooked and rich tasting. The bar is very comfortable and pleasant.. Great atmosphere, very comfortable,... More

Fantastic experience, every time. Dinner is always good, but if you ever have an opportunity to go there for lunch, you should try their 3-course meal. It is truly a great deal and cannot go wrong.
