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.

I like the concept of French restaurants that get it right, without being stuffy or offering formulaic meals, but they're not always easy to find. Walking into Marche was like walking into my dream of a perfect French restaurant, with a lovely Oregon flavor to it. Everything was comfortable, the service was excellent, and the food knocked our socks off,... More

The Marche had a nice breakfast selection. The croque monsieur reminded me of one I had in Paris. A cozy place to dine with family, friends or colleagues.

I've been here a few times. I only paid once. The other times were for work seminars. The food was awful and the service was worse (lunch and dinner). It is extremely expensive. I never have a problem paying a lot of money for good food (even if the service isn't the best), but I won't do it at this... More

We were back for dinner before the New Year's eve opera. The place was very busy but the staff handled our group of 12 professionally and treated us as if we were the only guests in the place. The manager made two calls at our table for greetings and to freshen up the wine in our glasses. We all agreed... More

Great food great service and nice ambience! I took my Daughter and granddaughter for lunch and they enjoyed it very much. I have also been for dinner with my husband and with family and friends. I have enjoyed it most when I am seated in the front and not hidden away in back. I love the fact that the chef... More

We had a wonderful breakfast at Marche. Prepared well, warm, and delicious. The server was all right. Not terribly friendly and she was slowwww. She only had one other table. Bit too busy talking to the other staff, but, her service didn't ruin our meal. Highly recommend Marche.

The hotel I was staying at during a business trip to Eugene recommend this restaurant as one of the nicer places around town to eat at and they were right!

A surprising and great find in Eugene at the 5th Street Market. French inspired food and decor. As with most places in Eugene, service is a bit slow, but who's in a hurry when there's good food being prepared? Don't miss their breakfast items such as eggs benedict and fresh beignets. The homemade charcuterie is great for an evening snack... More
