Editorial review from Citysearch 3/6/2014

Food is always good and creative. The only problem with the place is no place to stand when waiting and the acoustics make it hard sometimes to carry on a conversation. But it is still worth it for the food. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 9/21/2012

The food is always yummy at Marche. However, the waiters & waitresses often are not very friendly or helpful. Especially if you bring a child. I'm not sure why they are all so grumpy--but it takes the fun out of eating there. more

Dinner is the big secret 4/13/2011

I have decided that the reason why I can't find more reviews about dinner at Marche is because those in the know don't want anyone else to know. When my friend suggested it, I thought she was mistaken. I thought it was only brunch/lunch place. The ""supper"" hours aren't even posted on the door! But I was really wrong. Amazing, amazing, inspired meal. Check out the asparagus and egg... Yum, and if you're really adventurous, they even have bone marrow on the menu. Definitely a unique experience you don't often find in Nashville. more

Not what it used to be 8/17/2010

What has changed? Once one of my very favorite places to eat and some of the best entrees in town. Last couple months disastrous. Overcooked trout and duck and slimy mustard chicken. I hate that this has happened but 3 srikes and your are out! more

A bit of France in Nashville 2/25/2010

The menu in the evening changes monthly so you can look forward to enjoying what each season has to offer. Go in February before the cassoulet is gone. It was delicious last night. I can't figure out why no one goes at night. It is casual, romantic perhaps and just very comfortable. The Mussels and Little neck clams in a fennel bacon and cream sauce was rich and satisfying. Can't wait to see what March brings. Read more on Nashville restaurants on my web site. Pros: I love it all! more

Undercooked Chicken. Ugh. 6/25/2009

Ordered the mouth-watering-sounding buttermilk breaded fried chicken sammy for lunch. It arrived obviously undercooked. I sent it back. When it came back to me, my lunch companions were halfway through their lunches and my chicken sammy was still UNDERCOOKED. As in difficult to cut with a knife, almost raw undercooked. I decided against sending it back a second time because... two chances to cook this chicken is one too many and we had to get back to work. I won't be dining there again. Pros: Sunny, Great Coffee Cons: Undercooked chicken x2 more

A Good Meal With Value 2/12/2009

I was in town on business and brought my wife, so we decided to do an early Valentine meal. She loves French cuisine so I searched for good Nashville options. We were intending to go to Margots and when a parking spot was not readily available, we made the block and found this gem. I had seen it on this site earlier, but was under the mistaken impression that they did not serve dinner. As parking here was abundant we pulled in and I picked up a menu. We could not have been more pleased with our experience. We shared an appetizer of roasted tomatoes, cured olives and fried white beans and had a nice salad. For our entrees, I had the beef short rib special which melted in my mouth, and my wife had a beautifully presented vegetarian plate with a walnut encrusted portabello mushroom, a sweet potato mash, and roasted brussel sprouts with pine nuts. We finished our meal with a great pot-de-creme and a creme brulee. Everything was great, the service was excellent, and the price- with a glass of wine and coffees, under $75! I felt like we got a lot of quality and quantity for a good price. We are not high-dollar big spending foodies, but we love a good meal, and this one was definitely a great find. Pros: quality, value and easy parking Cons: ambiance more

best food ever 10/1/2008

I love this place and CAN NOT believe I just discovered it. It makes me wish I lived in East Nashville so I could walk there everyday to eat. THe food is just amazing. And the prices are so low in comparison to how yummy the food is! AMZING. Go there! now! Pros: food and prices Cons: absolutely none. more

My New Favorite Place 8/24/2008

This is the best place for lunch in Nashville, no question. I ""discovered"" this place when a friend took my there for lunch and immediately I loved it. The large windows, eclectic selection of tables and other decor make the place feel very unique and charming. I cannot say enough good things about their food. I have had many different things--all vegetarian--and I have never been disappointed. I especially like all their fresh vegetables in their dishes they have a delicious salad that comes with some dishes that involves cucumber, beans, tomato, etc with a wonderful light vinaigrette. I know that it is open for dinner now too but I have not been there for that yet. I have taken many people here of all types, older people, business friends, family, and all of them loved it. My mother was even trying to figure out how she could try to replicate some of the dishes. It is also very progressive with things like heirloom tomatoes which I love. I have had dessert here and it was a berry tart and it was just the best thing ever. I would not recommend taking children here as it is not really that kind of place. The staff are incredibly friendly and provide great service. The only downside is that it is probably going to keep getting more popular and it is a bit small. Otherwise, perfection. Pros: Very fair pricing for this type of quality, great service, food atmosphere Cons: A bit small more

Great Brunch 7/19/2008

We went for brunch on Saturday, and only had to wait about 15 minutes for a table. So we ordered coffee and drinks and hung out until they called us. We ordered the bread basket with 6 different spreads and it was so good! Then we got our entrees, which were all very flavorful and were made with fresh ingredients. Croissant french toast, eggs and prosciutto with arugula on tuscan bread, beef brisket with eggs and bread, and granola were all very tasty and light. The omelets and quiche looked great too. It was a good atmosphere (very European), very relaxing, especially all the natural light from the windows. You can even watch them make the meals, so you know that you are getting great service. We will definitely be back soon! more

Excellent brunch 6/2/2008

Sunday brunch was my first trip to Marche. There was a few minute wait, but it was worth the wait. The food was excellent, and the service was satisfactory. There were seven in our party, and they were able to accomodate this size party. I look forward to returning to Marche. Pros: Excellent food. Cons: Limited space more

Great for lunch! 5/26/2008

If you're looking for bruch, I'd skip Marche...its sister restaurant, Margot, has a much bigger and better brunch menu, but you can't beat Marche for a light weekday or weekend lunch. The food is fresh and delicious-- I have never had anything there that I did not like. The coffee (Drew's Brews) is excellent. The service is always efficient and quick, if not overly friendly. The menu changes weekly, but standouts I've had in the past are the steak sandwich, a savory goat cheese and leek tart, and the strawberry marscapone sponge cake. The soup and salads are always interesting and tasty. This is a good option for vegetarians; there is always at least one creative veggie entree on the menu. Never been there for dinner, but I hear it is good as well. Pros: The food, fresh ingredients, creative kitchen Cons: Reservations not accepted, often a wait more

Was expecting a little more... 5/11/2008

I'd heard great things about Marche so maybe my expectations were too high, but I was kind of disappointed after my visit today. It was Mother's Day so I'm sure it was much busier than normal but it just didn't live up to the hype. We had a 45 minute wait (understandably so) but I liked the European feel and interior and was looking forward to the food.\r \r When we sat down I was kind of disappointed with the menu. I was hoping that a place renowned for brunch would have more brunch-type options. There was only one quiche and one omelette on the menu and then entrees like pork chop, steak/eggs, pasta, salmon, and some others. I decided on the omelette and my boyfriend decided on the quiche (since we were both in the mood for brunch). After ordering, our waitress told us they were out of the quiche listed and the replacement was a broccoli cheddar quiche. The broccoli cheddar sounded kind of ordinary so my boyfriend had to pick something else and defaulted to the same omelette that I was ordering. I wish she'd told us about the menu change when we first sat down, but was still looking forward to the food. We also ordered the salmon tartar appetizer.\r \r Our omelets arrived, but no salmon tartar. We had to ask for it and our waitress brought it out immediately but it's a pet peeve of mine to not receive an appetizer before my meal. Both the tartar and omelets were good, but not great. Also the tartar came with only 4 pieces of toast (which really wasn't enough) so we asked for more. Our waitress asked if we wanted toast or bread and we said whatever is easier and it still took about 10 minutes for two slices of bread to get to the table. Overall, it was a less than stellar experience but I'd be willing to give Marche another visit, maybe next time for lunch or dinner.\r \r For anyone who lives around South Nashville, I think Sofie's Bistro has a better brunch menu (Sundays only) and since I don't live in East Nashville, I'll probably stick with Sofie's for Sunday brunch. Pros: Good food, nice interior Cons: Seating is limited, no waiting area more

excellent brunch location 10/3/2007

fabulous for a group brunch or take home for dinner during the week. they close early so be prepared if you go for dinner!\r love the mimosa on a Saturday morning! Pros: great food, service, and specialty items Cons: none other than closing at 7 pm! more

Go with expectations lowered and you'll be fine! 8/24/2007

Some of their things are pretty tasty (like the blt, although sometimes it's too rich), and it's good to have a place like this in East Nashville. However, the staff is annoying with their upselling, it has taken 20 minutes for me to get a take-out sandwich, and service can be either great or below average. For someone who spent most of their adult life in a city with a real restaurant scene, it continues to be a disappointment. Since there is little competition in Nashville, they get away with a lot that wouldn't fly elsewhere. If you like cheese, the cheese plate is good, but I was really disappointed to find there was only one kind of cheese offered. Come on! Pros: one of the only places for brunch in East Nashville, cute interior Cons: overhyped in general, service can be terrible and pretentious more
