Another two and a half years has gone by since my last review so I thought I should just update my previous one of June 2014. Everything I said in that review still goes. This is a jewel of a restaurant. Lovely environment, impeccable service and delectable food.. I have sat in all the dining areas, but my favorite is... More

A friend and I went for the fixe prix lunch during the holiday season, and I had very high expectations for the restaurant. I had heard rave reviews, but I was a bit disappointed with my meal. It was good, but it was not great. And, I was hoping for great. The soup was delicious, but it did not come... More

Truly enjoy the prefix lunch. Choices are interesting, food quality and cooking are great and love the half bottle wine or bubbles options. And the bread is also excellent. Service is quite good. Depending upon seating sometimes it feels a little chaotic and noisy but generally atmosphere is fine.

My friend and I have been sharing a pre-Christmas lunch at Marche Moderne. It's conveniently located at South Coast Plaza in Costa Mesa. The food never fails to please although there are variations at times. We enjoy the uniquely prepared dishes. We usually get salmon with a fancy salad. We prefer to sit outside the main restaurant as it's more... More

My friend and I enjoyed their pre-fix lunch. First course was an excellent salad with bread. Second course was the best beef bourguignon that I ever tasted...even better than the food I ate in Paris. Third course was a pumpkin cream cheese cylinder. All were good, as was the wine. Coffee was good but not outstanding. There service for the... More

My husband and I have been to this restaurant a few times, over the years. We have enjoyed it, and found the food to be consistently well-prepared. I have lived in France for a number of years and know French cooking. This restaurant never measured up to the standards of really fine dining I'd have expected, considering their high prices,...

After reading all the great reviews, we went for my birthday Saturday night. Arrived at 7:40 and were seated at a nice table. It was smaller inside than I expected but a lovely atmosphere. Started with the pork belly and it was excellent but sadly the highlight of our meal. Next course was bone marrow which we were looking forward... More

I took my PTA group to have a nice lunch together. To make paying bill easier, we all ordered prefixed lunch. It was good, but it was not anything special that I was somewhat expected something special according to other people's review. I guess I have to go back there to have meal off regular menu, not prefixed. The service... More

As other reviewers have noted it is strange to find a French dinner restaurant in a shopping mall. Friends who are local took me there as they regularly have lunch there. I found it dark and gloomy upon entry and at six they had a few customers. It became quite busy later in the evening. I felt an air of... More
