There are little copper pots that line a wall near the open kitchen from which their version of the classic coq au vin is served .The setting is classic and comfortable with quality friendly staff that make you...

I love French food, but it isn't easy to find good French food here in the U.S. (particularly in Southern California). That is why I was so excited to discover Marche Moderne about 5 years ago. It is a surprising restaurant to find in a mall - even a high end mall housing such luxury stores as Tiffany's, Chanel, and... More

Coming from UK and believing I know and like my food, this was a real find (and in a Mall!). It came from a recommendation from someone in a famous jewellers beginning with 'T'! Sat at the bar, the service was exceptional. As it was later on, I only ordered 2 smaller plates, the cheese board and the octopus salad.... More

I have been savoring the cuisine at Marche Moderne's French Bistro from the beginning when they opened almost ten years ago. The food, the atmosphere, the great value lunch menu make this elegant and sophisticated restaurant the best in Orange County. The service is excellent and the waiters are incredibly helpful and indulgent. They served once a shortbread dessert with... More

I don't know where to begin. It all starts at the bar with Ryan the best bartender around. He also is a great source of suggestions if you want to eat at the bar, which I usually do. Food wise everything is perfectly prepared and served. The wait staff are friendly and extremely knowledgeable. The wine selection is outstanding. I... More

Starting to slip after all these years. The food is superb, that hasn't changed. Service is starting to slip. After we ordered, our salads came out immediately, followed by our water then wine. Our bread came out after we had had half of our salads. We had to ask twice for more bread. They never refilled our water. And when... More

I was dinning at the bar alone. The service was very professional! But the food was inconsistent. Calamari was too salty, pork belly was very hard, even the bartender tried to use a steak knife, but couldnt cut through. i had to return it to the kitchen for another. Hamachi sashimi was very good. Vermicelli with clam had to much... More
