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

Located in the most upscale part of an upscale mall, it is a lovely French restaurant. Menu is great and cooked beautifully. Service is wonderful. Wine list is good. It is also not loud so a business dinner could easily be executed.

Ahhhh, the exciting and wonderful taste of French cuisine has always been celebrated for its excellence. There is an exciting OC venue inspired by that same culinary excellence and aristocratic flare. A truly delectable Parisian dining experience, located near Hermes; the bar is small, quaint, and personable; The food’s architecture is visually stunning, an accomplished tribute to the House of...

We were visiting the area and my wife and daughter wanted to shop, so we went to the South Coast Plaza. My daughter chose this restaurant for lunch based on reviews. I had the fixed-menu lunch with a sald, scallops done in a Thai style and dessert. Since I gave the dessert to my daughter, who liked it, I will... More

On my birthday we made a 5:30 dinner reservation at Marche. This has been our go to place for special occasions and they have never let us down. A plus is the fact that that change the menu given seasons and supplies of great foods. Our server Lorissa was outstanding, knowledgable without acting superior. The first table they were going...

We have been a patron of this restaurant since it opened but have noticed its decline recently. We have always taken our family and out-of-town guests here for celebration. The lunch specials are no longer special. The quality is mediocre at best. Last night one of our friends treated us to a birthday celebration at the restaurant and I ordered... More

It's a cozy place with nice ambiance after shopping in South Coast Plaza , food and wine are great but quite pricey! Although they have pizzas and other cheaper dishes but small in proportion They offer quite a variety of choices , good wine selection , but not quite good for big groups and for those with kids

This is the restaurant that I go to when I need to recharge my culinary soul. The ambiance is embracing, you enter through South Coast Plaza and step out of Southern California into another world. The rooms are dark in a very private way that allows you to focus on your friends and food. The food is impeccable French Cuisine.... More
