Over the top quality food! I wish they were carrying more local female owned spirits at the bar as we all were there to celebrate a reality show about female distillers.

This food was so delicious that I literally am STILL thinking about it and the next time I will be fortunate enough to eat there again!

However our server was terrible. Not sure if they were understaffed or what but he took forever to get us a water, forever to get us a menu, forever to take our order and when he finally got to the table with our first beverage - 30 minutes into our arriving- he ONLY brought one (for a party of 4) beverage which was for the person we TOLD him we were waiting for.

However the food was phenomenal. One of us got the Coque Au Vin, 2 of us got the Shrimp Provencal and 1 of us got the Chicken francais over gnocchi.

I highly recommend and would go again in a heartbeat!

Our waiter was great but we found the restaurant shabby and no ambiance. The food was subpar. And we actually had upset stomachs afterwards. It felt more like a bad Applebees that a french bistro. Ruined our trip

The ambiance is just look a restaurant in France. The menu has all of the French favorites. We had escargot, which was delicious. Also had the foie gras terrine. This we felt was very overpriced for what it was but was also delicious. The fried goat cheese salad was very good.
Overall a wonderful dining experience. After living in France for 2 years it was nice to have the experience here at home.

Despite the necessary adjustments due to COVID-19 we had an enjoyable meal here. We sat outside, tables were well spaced and there were fans to keep air circulating. Menu is an abbreviated version of their normal menu but it seems as if all the faves are back. Happy to be back!

Food was all excellent. Prices were very fair. We sat outside which was kinda a mistake because it was so hot (July), but you can’t blame the restaraunt for the heat. We will come back!!

My husband and I went to celebrate our anniversary. While our dining experience is not the typical one (due to Covid), we felt very welcome and comfortable. Our waitress was so wonderful and helped pick the perfect wine pairing to go along with our meals. They went above and beyond to make sure everyone was well taken care of! We will definitely be back for another delicious meal.

The staff was friendly & took all covid guideline precautions into consideration. Our meals were delicious. We were supposed to sit outside but because of a storm they accommodated us inside. Definitely try the moules... excellent as an appetizer!

Sublime is the word I use to describe our anniversary dinner at Rue de Jean. Though you can pay more at other Charleston restaurants it's hard to beat this bistro for value.

Food was excellent, service was great. However, for outside seating they do need to install bug zappers or some other method to control the flies.
