39 Rue de Jean - Charleston
We offer a modified menu from 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm.
Need to book at 4:15 AM?Other great restaurants with availability.
The mussels were outstanding as usual. I ordered the gravlox sandwich with salad the gravlox was tough and salty. Rather disappointing
Very Very nice, but the crowd noise was Loud. Great food and the service was Outstanding.
The Coq is vin had lots of bones in it. I was hoping I wouldn’t choke the whole time.
Honestly, I was really looking forward to visiting this restaurant while in town. The service was not great, our drink order came super late and the waiter neglected to recall he took an order for apps so that took a minute to arrive. The food was mediocre at best. Scallops were rubbery and nothing really popped. The desert was quite good, I can say that!
Everything was great. Especially the creme brûlée
Rue de Jean has always been a go-to for us if we are going to a show at the Music Hall and our most recent visit didn't disappoint. Menu has plenty of options - both diet-conscious as well as for those that want to indulge in something a bit richer. Salads were sizable and complimented the sushi and tartare that we enjoyed as our entrees. Service was attentive without being overbeing. The reason for four versus five stars for my rating was being stuck in a corner that felt cramped and lighting for was extremely poor. We left satisfied, but not stuffed. Will be back again soon!
We went before a concert at Charleston Music Hall next door, so of course it was crowded and loud that evening. We had a reservation and were seated promptly near the bar area. I imagine the main dining room would have been a bit less noisy. Even though it was was busy, the service was very good and our food came out quickly, and everything was cooked perfectly. Delicious as always! Definitely one of our favorite restaurants.
Always has the best food to match the great atmosphere! One of our favorites!
The shrimp cocktails are the best I have ever had. Best food and service in Charleston !!!
Rue de Jean was a great choice as always. This time, we were fortunate to be there on bouillabaisse night. Delicious. Mom, who at 98 can be a picky eater, relished her trout almandine and creme broule. Will be back on our next trip to Charleston.
Awesome as always!
Had a great time in a great place! Will be back!
The wonderful French menu selections are what attracted me to this place and the food that came out of the kitchen fulfilled my hopes. Delicious. With the exception of a vegetable entree, every one of entrees were the tops. Food prepared well with the flavors that one expect from a French cuisine. Very finely flavored sauces. Rabbit, lamb, steak au povuire, coq au vin, trout all delicious.
The disappointments came from two areas. The seating for 8 of us was a long table and there didn't seem to be a round table in the place. Would have been nice to have one.
Secondly, the service was inattentive, slow, and erratic. For the quality of the food (and the price point which is steep but reasonable), the service should have been so much different. I just felt our waitress was not on top of how to serve. And we weren't that hard to satisfy. Because of our group size, the tip was already added to the tab, but I would have definitely left less that my usual 20% (which is what the restaurant calculated).
Also, no one in the place had any knowledge of the wines on the wonderful extensive wine list. We couldn't get a recommendation for our wine selection and went with a known quantity. The prices on the wine were quit reasonable.
I would go again and would recommend it. But I would ask for another server if we got the one we had last night, on the chance that this is not a restaurant problem. Lack of wine sommelier needs attention.
my mom and i went as a special treat for ourselves, a girls night. steak frites were delicious, bread was warm and yummy, and we both recommend the pot de creme for dessert!!
Great food, wine and atmosphere. The mussels are amazing, all of the dishes are loaded with dynamic flavor.
We love French brasseries and this did not disappoint. In a foodie town like Charleston, you’ve gotta be good to stay in business. Drinks were a little pricey, but food seemed reasonably priced and good quality. We both had seafood-scallops and trout amandine-and it was fresh and delicious.
The highlight of the meal was dessert. We shared the flourless chocolate torte and it was outstanding, creamy and chocolaty, heaven in every bite. I would return just for that dessert.
Atmosphere was great, drinks were fantastic, service was outstanding, food was not good. My salad was drowned in dressing, salmon was too salty and too hard. Everyone at the table were not impressed about the food.
Exquisite food, fantastic service and a delightful atmosphere
Authentic French done well! Highly recommend the mussels, Coq A Vin, and Poached Pear!
Food was just okay. It was pretty busy but service was really slow, slower than it should have been.
We wind up here a lot because it is a reliable and fun place to eat. The service is always stellar. I love their six or eight different varieties of mussels so ordering anything else is difficult for me because they’re so good. Brunch menus on weekends are fantastic. All the egg dishes are yummy. Any of their sandwiches are delicious, also their fries are unspeakably good. We enjoy all of the Bennet Hospitality restaurants and this one doesn’t disappoint-ever!
Great lunch. Service was quick an attentive. Food was perfect. Will recommend this place in the future.
Wine selection was great. Food was good, but I expected more from the service. A lot more.
One of our favorite places. Always great food. A must stop for lunch or dinner.
French onion soup lacked characteristic flavor and doubt it had gruyere cheese. The escargot was ok; the grilled cheese was also just ok. Not impressed across the board - shame.
The service was not what it used to be and the place was not very busy to warrant the delays.
Had a great time! Food was wonderful!
Great covered outdoor patio. We were able to bring our dogs and sit outside. Great ambiance
So good! Will absolutely go back and we will absolutely ask for our same server, Scott! He was absolutely phenomenal and made our evening so much fun!
Lovely restaurant with an amazing menu. The mussels were fabulous. Great wine list but they need to update the signature cocktails - didn't have the vodka advertised. Also could have done without the server asking if we wanted dessert while we were only 3/4 of the way through our meal!!! Major pet peeves.
What gem this was to find! Great food and service. The ingredients were fresh and flavorful. This is a very Parisian French restaurant. I highly recommend it.
Our waiter started us off with two good wine selections. Everything on the menu is wonderful but both of us ordered the Scallops from the specials menu and we split the Duck Confit Crepes also from the specials list. Both were absolutely delicious but I especially loved the Duck Crepes. It's always a treat to dine at Rue de Jean!
We sat outside on a balmy night and had a great experience. The food and wine were worth the price and the service was outstanding. Would recommend this place for great value, great food, great service.
Except for the noise it was a great experience. It was a bit too noisy to fully enjoy what I would consider a higher end dining experience.
Simply put, amazing food! I highly recommend the coq au vin. Excellent service too. All in all, a great experience, highly recommended!
Not sure why this place is rated so highly. Went there this past Saturday evening with family of four and was disappointed. Coq o Vin chicken was basically a bowl of chicken bones with little meat. Short rib was dry and stringy and vegetables we’re still cold in the middle.
Delicious food, good kids menu. Maybe just steer clear of the mussels as my husband had 2 that tasted a bit funny & has been a bit unwell today.
Very nice meal! Great service!
Food was delicious and the service was excellent
