I've loved this place for awhile, and under new ownership, it's now open evenings! We visited during the early days of the new ownership and had one fair (3-star) experience, though the next was far better (4-star). This one was 4 to 4-1/2 stars . We started with a nice Bread & Butter Pinot Noir, a bit sweeter and softer... More

I don't know quite what what we were expecting, but we had some of the best food we've ever had in Maine when at there recently on a bitter cold January night. We didn't make a reservation, but were fortunately able to get seated (two of us) on a Saturday night around 6:45. It got way busier later, so it... More

We are always interested in new places and we were excited to hear that Marche was now open for dinner. Frankly it was a confusing night. It started with the hostess who seemed disorganized and flustered. We hit the bar for some drinks ahead of our dinner and when we sat down the confusion continued. The opening line from the... More

Corey B. I want to apologize for you lackluster experience. Your experience is not how we normally operate and I will be addressing this with the staff. Our craft cocktails do take a bit longer when we are busy but that is too long for any style cocktail. Please think about trying us again in the future. We are constantly... More

Marche offers a truly unique, outstanding dinning experience in downtown Lewiston. The menu is wonderful! Be aware, however, that the "small" portions are still pretty generous. An appetizer, one entre, side dish, and a dessert will more than satisfy. I recommend the chicken or mushroom crepes - just amazing! The salmon was also very well prepared. The wine selection is...

We are so very happy you enjoyed your visit! Its true the portions are fair sized but a change from some of the establishments in the area. We keep portions small and prices low so guests can do like you recommended and have a 3 or 4 course meal and not be stuffed. We change a few parts of the... More

We found this delicious, reasonably priced French restaurant after touring Bates College. The small plates menu had many hits on it. We particularly enjoyed the spinach salad with dried fruit and candied nuts was terrific as were the chicken and dessert crepes.

Thank you for your comments. Our menu changes regularly to keep the hits coming. The crepes will always be there but the filling changes as we hear more feedback from our guests. Hope to see you soon Thank You Kevin Cunningham Chef/Manager Marche Kitchen and Wine Bar More

Chef Kevin Cunningham and Bar Manager Tom Ardia are both at the top of their respective professions and couldn't be more accessible or friendly. Additionally, Susan Hall's (The Vault wine store) rotating selections of wine can't be beat! This is a great place to relax, meet friends, and enjoy food and drink (while learning something about both if you're interested).... More

Marche is another gem along Lisbon Street in Lewiston, ME. There is table service which is a departure from the model used by the previous owners, The food is still great, fabulous sandwiches.

Never been to this venue and was told it was under new owners. To my surprise, this place was amazing! The menu, which is all tapas plates, was amazing! I highly recommend the Lobster crepe which was to die for. It was packed with big fresh chunks of lobster in a wonderful creme sauce wrapped in a perfectly cooked crepe.... More
