This place recently moved from the Newport Center to Crystal Cove. What a success. Easy to get to, easy valet parking. Beautiful space, great staff and knowledgeable, friendly servers.
This place is so good that we went twice, including our last evening in So. Cal. Do not miss!
Quite French, Sweetbreads, Rabbit, Coq Au Vin, hanger steak and frites, plus many more. Everything we had was spectacular (not to mention the deserts).
We think this is the best spot for dinner on the Newport--Laguna coast. Go.

It is difficult to describe how fantastic this dining experience is. From the Triple 000 Caviar to the Lobster Riso you will have to try this Modern French Cuisine for yourself.

Have been here twice since the restaurant reopened along the coast. I miss the old place but have to say that the owners hit a home run in the new location. The menu is very similar as is the wine list. The food and service are still terrific. Both dinners were business dinners and my business guests were equally impressed. Will certainly return.

We expected good things, based on recommendations by friends, but our experience was mixed at best. Despite the fact that we had a reservation and arrived on time, we had to wait for close to 30 minutes to be seated. March Moderne is a noisy, trendy restaurant, with good service at a premium price. The service was very good, better than the food, which was good, but portions were small and options were limited if you're not dining on duck, or rabbit, or beef. Seafood choices were slim at best, and although well prepared, I left hungry as portions were definitely on the small side. The salads and appetizers were excellent, but again portions were exceptionally small. Overall, the restaurant is very good, but very, very overpriced when compared to similar establishments. There are certainly better choices in Newport Beach, both in terms of food and ambiance, but if you're into trendy, crowded, overpriced restaurants, you'll enjoy March Moderne.

The new Marche Moderne is a beautiful space with an open kitchen, cozy booths and a lovely patio. There was a fun and energetic vibe throughout the restaurant. We sat on the patio which was reasonably quiet. The main dining room seemed extremely noisy and would not be comfortable for a fine dining experience IMO. The service was good and attentive. The disappointment was solely on the food. It was certainly very good but it was NOT outstanding. The expectations were high for Marche Moderne's opening of this new place. The cost was over $500 for 4 with no dessert and only glasses of wine so not such great value. Always glad to pay for fine dining when it is exceptional. This unfortunately was not of that caliber this time. Maybe next time.....
