“Go Here”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

I can't write enough great things about this place. Perfect menu on Thursdays includes their hamburger which, at $19 isn't free, but is well worth it. Fries are great, and are included. Start with one of their great pastas (gnocchi is superb), bib salad with perfectly crunchy rendered bacon, and wash it with some reasonably priced wine from their by-the-glass list. Their ice cream Sunday is perhaps as amazing as their chocolate budino-style desert- with homemade ice cream.

In warm weather months, ask to sit outside. This is the perfect place to have a very good meal, equally great service, and a nice ambiance. The husband/wife owners (chef/ dining room manager respectively), make sure everything is done right.

Good for a date, a date night, or special occasion.

“Best Restaurant in Marin.”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

Marche aux Fleurs is an outstanding French-Californian restaurant, and our favorite restaurant in Marin. The "nibbles" are all good--our favorites are the bacon-wrapped dates, the boccherones, and the olive. When available, the gazpacho soup is killer, with the beet salad a close second. The orechiette with Italian Sausage and Calabrian peppers is a wonderful mainstay, if you can't find something new and different on the changing menu to tempt you. Service is personable and well-timed, and the wine list is both interesting and (mostly) moderately priced.

No, this is not French Laundry or Daniel, but it does not aspire to be. The cuisine is creative and well-prepared, while avoiding preciosity, and the portions and prices are far more in line with normal appetites and pocketbooks.
