A great French bistro with patio seating in the middle of the LA Farmers Market. I had a light lunch of delicious spinach quiche and a simple green salad. The service was wonderful. The shop by the same name has a wonderful array of spices, and chocolates for sale too.

We were on a bus tour around LA and were taken to the farmers market for lunch. After having a good look around we came upon Monsieur Marcel's and liked the look of the (French) menu, so decided to eat there...and we're very glad we did! The food was great (as was the wine!) and the service was very attentive!... More

Wide choice, good service, lovely ambience despite being in a market setting. Great to have offerings of veggies on the side as I'm not used to this in California. The Brussel sprouts were cooked really well.

The chicken rotisserie came with roasted potatoes and a delicious sauce, and the three pieces of chicken were very well prepared. The mussels (moules marinières) was also great, although the number of mussels seemed a bit short for a big appetite. The French burger was also delicious. If the French fries were a bit bigger than these dried out allumettes,... More

My husband and I had lunch during the week at Monsieur Marcel's. It was around 1pm. We were in a hurry, and pleasantly surprised that we did not have to wait for a table! We sat right down. The Table and Chairs were clean, which is a challenge for an outdoor Restaurant! The Server was very pleasant, my warm goat's... More

Monsieur Marcel was a wonderful place for dinner with family. It has the best French food. I had excellent salmon and my husband really enjoyed the Beef Bourguignon. My son and his fiancé had fantastic dinners as well. Authentic French food and a marvelous menu. The Farmer's Market is a fun area to visit.

Perfect place for a break with friends. The location is very unique, open and perfect for a large group of people. The food is great, I had the merguez/frite which is not easy to find in California. Quantity are correct. Bread is excellent and desert (Tarte Tatin) just wonderful. Good service. Only issue you can't order alcohol.

My wife and I lunched at the Santa Monica location on a sunny Thursday. Intimate outdoor tables set for two, ample shading provided by large umbrellas, professional French-speaking waiters, authentic French music, and then the wonderful food! The salad Nicoise, sandwiches, and desserts were well-presented and delicious. Several public parking lots within 1-3 blocks, plus the ever-interesting 3rd Street Promenade.... More

This place is an oasis in the madness of the Farmer's Market. The food is delicious and the wine selection is the best. Love the Happy Hours every afternoon.
