Seasonal menus that marry French-inspired cuisine with high-quality fresh and local ingredients from farms, markets and specialty purveyors.


Celebrate life’s simple pleasures at Bistro Marquee.

Located in downtown Portland’s Theater District at 200 Market Street, Bistro Marquee features an open kitchen, expansive bar, airy dining room and year-round seating on the glassed-in heated patio. Walking distance to theaters, downtown hotels and the gorgeous Portland riverfront, Bistro Marquee is the perfect spot for lunch and dinner, including pre-theater dining. The robust Happy Hour features items both on the dining menu and bar-only fare, created to accompany and enhance the beverage menu.

French-inspired menu uses both classical and new techniques. Menus change frequently, with more comprehensive revisions seasonally. Working with local farms like Deep Roots Farm, DeNoble’s Farm and Creative Growers, the menus showcase fresh, local, and naturally grown ingredients of the highest quality.
