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've eaten at Marche dozens of times. They do an outstanding job, with an emphasis on Pacific Northwest cuisine and local foods. It's a great restaurant for both a romantic dinner and for a business dinner meeting. We also hold our annual office holiday event here. When the weather is nice, ask for the outdoor seating. Also, the Marche bar... More

Marche has consistently excellent food. Stephanie Pearl has a well deserved reputation for the quality of her food in every restaurant she has influenced at it continues at Marche. The service is of equally high quality with experienced staff willing to explain and adapt. Go during Happy Hour for some delicious small bites at lower prices.

Good food, nice wine. Great atmosphere downtown Eugene. Be prepared fairly costly. Within walking distance of several other nice establishments. Would be a treat to come here again!

The food choices at Marche are always seasonal and fresh. For a special birthday lunch, the selections were varied with a price range that was good for most pocketbooks - from a simple soup or appetizer to a more elaborate entree. The service was attentive without being overbearing and the atmosphere in the back portion of the restaurant was less... More

This is one of Eugene's best restaurant and the owner has been responsible in one way or the other for much of the good food in Eugene.

This is an upscale restaurant. It might be nice for a special occasion, but if you want to have lunch with a friend I would go someplace else as staff was not very friendly.

Owned and nurtured by nationally-renown chef Stephanie Kimmel, this is probably THE premier restaurant in Eugene. It is not cheap, but you will always get an outstanding gourmet meal of locally-grown and sourced food, beautifully presented and served. If you want to enjoy a quality meal and take it easier on your pocketbook, then go there for lunch which I... More

Marche' used to be one of my favorite restaurants in Eugene. We would dine there a couple of times a month. The food and service was always consistently top notch and impeccable and the prices very fair. I believe all of that has drastically changed. Last weekend we dined at Marche' with another couple. We sat in Le Bar Cafe... More
