OC Weekly's Description

Even if it weren't in the toniest part of South Coast Plaza (above Tiffany's), Marche Moderne would still be one of the best French restaurants in the county. Impeccable service by actual Frenchmen, a gorgeous patio with potted fruit trees, and a food tour de France prepared by owner/executive chef Florent Marneau that marches through bistro staples like steak frites. But he takes you to other places, too: sea urchin, harissa and rose-petal ice cream will make you forget you're just a few feet away from Nordstrom.

    This is THE spot for a fabulous and special night out. The entrees are creative and extraordinary, and the desserts are out of this world. Prices are competitive for high-end dining in Orange County. There are few, if any, places in OC where you can get this quality of dining experience for the price.

    This is the taste of France, the memory of so many bistros and bouchons and picnics beside the road. The rillettes taste as authentic as the terrine, fatty and delicious.

    Calamari + Long Island Duck followed by Pineapple Upside Down Cake = Heaven :)

    #7 on our Top 100 Dishes! Whether it's a riff on salade niçoise or a tower of crab and avocado reminiscent of Peru, skate wing with cauliflower or rich bœuf bourguignon, it's always great!

    French cuisine by a real Frenchman! The tastes burst in my mouth with mmmmmmmm everytime.

    If you plan last minute and dinner reservations are full, then go early at 5:30 and sit at the bar!
