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.

Enjoyed this restaurant! Try the Roasted Chicken Breast! Wines are French/local and fairly priced.

Best restaurant in Eugene.

“A classy, but homey restaurant you can trust for healthy, delicious food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013 via mobile

We love the food here & sitting out on patio in the summer is relaxing & pleasant. There's no view, no faux elegance meant to impress. Just a great place to eat in a central location. We live in this town & rarely dine out anywhere else.

“Not really worth it...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

Marche was highly recommended by the staff at Inn at the 5th where we stayed. Sadly it didn't live up to the hype or the price. The food was mixed...mine was fine, my wife couldn't eat her's because the meat was overcooked. Service was just average, not what we expected. Maybe we were there on an off night, but we were not impressed.

“Fine dining”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

A high-class restaurant (priced accordingly) with good food well prepared and excellent service. Just yards away from the Inn at the 5th, convenient for guests there.

“Wonderful Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

Attentive, personable wait staff, cocktails custom mixed to our individual likings, wonderful lovingly prepared food...it is just about perfect. I am stumped by the poor/mediocre reviews. We have been here 3 times and every time was a real treat. Here in Portland we are pretty spoiled by our restaurants and this one would certainly do well here. The prices are what we would expect to pay. We intend to come back.
