Description: Marche, located in Eugene, Oregon, opened in August 1998. The restaurant, which seats 80 guests, has an exhibition kitchen featuring a beautiful wood-fired oven. There is also a stylish bar and a large outdoor dining area, covered with awnings and umbrellas and surrounded by a garden of herbs and edible flowers. Marche takes its name from the French word for market – a word that describes our location in the bustling 5th street Market and more importantly, our philosophy of cooking. The menu is based on the foods one would find at a farmer’s market: fresh, seasonal, and regional. Marche is committed to using only those ingredients that are at their best, so our menu evolves as we move through the seasons of the year. Marche also believes in using the highest quality and most healthful ingredients available and to that end use organic, free range, and chemical free products. The culinary technique is French-based: intensely flavored and simply but beautifully presented.

We have always enjoyed going to Marche. The servers are fantastic and attentive. Menu is always wonderful and difficult to just choose one thing! Serving sizes are not large, but the food is so good that you don't leave hungry! Desserts are fantastic as well.

Went to Le Bar with a group of friends during their happy hour. It is a nice place with nice drinks but the service is truly lacking. I have been there a few times before and it is the same. Terrible service. This time the service was so poor that by the time our waiter got back to us, the... More

The last two times I've dined at Marché, I've had a fresh tomato salad. Each slightly different, depending on the season. I was blown away by both of the. Thank you Marché for offering such uniquely delicious, local and seasonal food. I'm routinely delighted when I dine at your restaurant!

I love this place. It's on the expensive side but everything tastes fantastic! We love the 2nd Wed meal that features a different area of France. The patio is perfect for a warm evening meal.

Fig and Blue Cheese little pizza was a great appetizer and I had halibut that was perfectly cooked...so easy to ruin by overcooking and they really did it right! A little noisy but lively restaurant very convenient to Inn at the 5th Hotel right next door. I would return.

Lovely restaurant with outdoor seating but a bit difficult to locate. The address is 5th st but the restaurant is actually in an inner courtyard and not visible from the street. I called to ask for help and the host was very kind but not quite clear with the directions. Parking was in a lot across the street and free.... More

Marche is definitely one of the most under-rated restaurant, not just in Eugene but to many others. The Ambience is above average, service is good but the Food !! menu is relatively small but the quality of cooking is excellent ! Not much to say about the Oysters, except that they serve great Oysters. The Mussels on the other hand... More

The service was amazing, tasters of wine and suggestions were spot on. I live in Charleston SC a food paradise and have yet to taste a fries oyster so well... More

The venerable Marche may not always be the most creative or sexy restaurant in Eugene, but it is usually the most consistent in providing well-prepared meals with fresh and local ingredients. The menu changes seasonally, but that might not be frequent enough for those looking for new and exciting combinations. The staff is well-trained and friendly. The wine list is... More
