Our experience with 39 Rue de Jean was a pleasant one. Our service was outstanding. The scallop pasta dish was absolutely delicious. We ordered a steak and unfortunately it came out charred on one side but the manager was very quick to take it off of our bill. Wine selection was excellent and the wine we had was fantastic. Overall a wonderful experience and we will be back.
Wonderful place for a nice meal! Food was delicious, service was great and the manager walked us through a wine experience which was amazing. Thank you again for a wonderful dining experience. Will definitely be back here when in town!
Not really good French food. Lacking in herbs/garlic and over abundance of mashed potatoes!
The 39 Rue de Jean experience was wonderful. The atmosphere was amazing, food was spectacular, and the staff was great.
Food was great but service was very slow. Waited about 2 hours for the entree. Luckily we weren’t in a rush and food was delicious and worth the wait. Would recommend if you’re not looking for a fast dinner.
The whole experience was bad, we were seated before they asked if we had a reservation we ordered a Caesar Salad to split and it was so spicy they took it off the bill. We both ordered Filet Mignon with potatoes Au Gratin , The Filet was pretty good but the potatoes were cold. The service was terrible, it was almost an hour before we were served the entree. All in all very disappointing.
On a quiet Monday evening, my party of three very much enjoyed this lovely, bistro-style dining room and our excellent service. Roast rabbit with a cheeky side of whole carrots made us giggle; the shrimp and pasta dish was savory and enormous; and my mussels in red curry sauce was tangy and quite generous for only $14. Warm sliced French bread was replaced when empty. Our booth was spacious and comfortable. Lighting was perfect.
Enjoyed drinks at the bar first and then a wonderful dinner in the dining room!
Lovely meal, stimulating but not noisy atmosphere would definitely return.
Service was great. The host and server was very friendly and prompt. The food just isn’t that good. I had a NY Strip that was just OK. My wife had a crispy flounder that was overly breaded. Escargot appetizer was unremarkable. In their defense, this is a french restaurant and as such uses sauce on practically everything, which is true for every other french restaurant at which I’ve dined.
Food is fresh and tasty. The staff can be inattentive. For instance forgetting bread and drink refills. The food is good, restaurant is clean and comfortable.
Service was slow. Went to this restaurant for sushi . Online website menu list several sushi items. When arrived we were informed they no longer serve sushi . Very misleading.
All was wonderful just loud
Our group of four celebrating two birthdays just loved our first visit to 39 Rue de Jean! Service was outstanding, all of our dinners were excellent and wine choices were varied and good. The atmosphere was very French and intimate while still having the exciting buzz of a French bistro. The manager stopping by to offer birthday wishes and a celebratory treat made the experience perfect.
There was not enough information about the dishes to tell if the would be gluten free or not so my girlfriend was not able to eat the appetizer. Besides that it was really good.
Only real positive was the service
Lackluster ambience, all food was void of any real flavor, and prices were extremely high for what you get.
The service was below average especially for fine dining and the price. I ordered a medium stake and it came out full of grizzle and way undercooked. Will never go back.
Excellent Excellent Excellent. That's all I can say about this restaurant. Best experience ever.
Filet minion and salmon were excellent. Both perfectly cooked. Jermaine did an awesome job as our waiter. We will be back.
We can’t wait to return. The best restaurant we’ve visited in Savannah. Very accurate with the French food but also with a taste of Charleston and a hint of New Orleans.
Hotel restaurants are not usually this good. The ambiance is lovely, and the menu is varied and fairly priced. Excellent servers too.
I dined on a slow Monday night. I had the escargot, braised rabbit, and poached pears
Vanessa suggested a polish gin in my Negroni It was amazing, she made my experience so special and I felt very warm and welcomed.
5stars all around!
Excellent food, wonderful service. My new favorite!
Extensive menu but we both had the Rue burger, a juicy delicious double patty. Also ordered a wedge salad but the end was starting to turn brown. No ground black pepper was offered. Nice ambiance. We also used a 10% off coupon from the Hampton Inn.
We enjoyed the delicious mussels with different sauces. The wait staff went to great lengths to help us celebrate my friend’s eightieth birthday! Could not have been nicer!!
Service was great and the food was outstanding. We will definalley go back again.
What an exciting and amazing dinner. I enjoyed the French onion soup as a starter and the mussels for my entree. Both were delicious. My friend ordered the pork chop and said it was excellent. Staff are very helpful and friendly. We would highly recommend.
?The food was tasty and well prepared. The ambiance was nice and service was good. My only disappointment was the two fish entrees that I was considering for my dinner were sold out by 7:00 p.m. and there was no additional fish entree other than scallops.
I'm ambivalent about a recommendation. I've been three times. I was there three weeks ago and ordered mussels with blue cheese and bacon and they were great. This time I ordered a full plate as an entree and I needed a microscope to find the mussels. They were tiny. I don't like the inconsistency.
The server was spectacular, the food was great and we loved it he ambience
Every time I visit Savannah, I visit 39 Rue de Jean. Why? Their escargot and French onion soup are sublime. And, again this week, those two dishes were on point. By the time I finished half a lettuce wedge, I knew that I couldn't add another bite and left with a poached pear to take with me (also delicious). The service is always good but this time the young lady tending bar and serving those in the bar area was exceptional. Thank you!
A group of us were there solely for the ALL YOU CAN EAT MUSSELS night that we welcomed back after too long a pause without it.
I'd rate the restaurant and its services 5 stars overall but I always reserve one star for the bathrooms, which I did not experience.
My only real complaints were related to the blistering cold gusts of air which poured through the main door streetside with the arrival of each new diner - with apparently no way to filter it. It's not normally so cold in Savannah, but a buffer should be taken into consideration for both air and heat in the future. Perhaps only certain tables would be affected by the blast of icy air, but it's a definite turn off if you are placed in line of the Arctic shock treatment! And the Pommes Frites were disappointed. They were good but not exceptional and I have to say, I truly expected more from a restaurant with a French name and which boasts a typical Belgian French meal. The mussels however were exceptional. They surpassed any I have eaten outside of Prince Edward Island. Our Maitre D was a delight, as were both our bar and table servers.
Outstanding as always. Our server Liz was kind and attentive without being obtrusive. We will be back again and again.
I ordered a 6 ounce filet. Nowhere on the menu does it say anything about a butterflied fillet or gravy or sauce that is automatically served on the beef. When my entrée arrived, my fillet was butterflied with sauce. My brother’s fillet was not butterflied but also had the sauce on the steak. I sent mine back and told the waiter that I would like a regular fillet just like my brother’s. When my dish arrived, it was raw on the inside when I specifically ordered a medium cooked fillet. The waiter and manager were extremely apologetic and removed the cost from our bill. My dinner that night consisted of mashed potatoes, garlic spinach (which was quite good!), and two bites of my brothers fillet. We most likely will not go back, but we enjoyed our drink at the bar which has a great atmosphere and a very friendly bartender.
What a great find for nice upscale dining with friends! Service and food was exceptional! All four of us ordered a different item on the menu which we ended up tasting something from everyones plate! There was not one item that was not outstanding!The Seafood Stew andBraised Short Rib were our favorites. The short Rib was so tender, we didn't even use our knife. The French onion soup offered not lack of delicious melted cheese and caramelized onions! (A delight in itself)
We will definitely be back! Only inconvenience, we were able to get our parking slip validated, however there was no attendant available when the electronic reader did not catch the validation and charged us to park anyway.
We have eaten at this location as well as the Charleston location before and loved it however this visit was an absolute miss! The restaurant was very quiet for a Friday evening, we were seated quickly, our server was pleasant. However we were there for 2 hours. The wait time between starter courses and our entrees was very long and I suspect our food was sitting under a warmer for a long time based on the dryness and over cooked texture of the meat.
Our mussels were amazing as they always are. The problem was the steak for sure. I ordered a ribeye cooked medium. In the past this ribeye has been a beautiful cut of meat cooked perfectly. This time what arrived was a pitiful cut with an overly “gamey” taste that I attribute to cheap meat that was way over cooked with a terrible gravy on top of it. It was inedible. I’m still disappointed two days later. I definitely expect more for a $35 steak. My dinner partners pork was dry and over cooked. Both were mentioned when someone finally returned to our table however there was no offer to correct it. I don’t think I will return to the Savannah location.
39 Rue de Jean was the best restaurant I've eaten at in Savannah! This French style restaurant had an incredibly authentic standard menu but an even more exciting specials menu. The crab chowder and seafood pasta should be added to the standard menu, extremely delicious and very generous portions.
All you call eat mussels are great!! Beautiful restaurant, phenomenal staff. We went 2 nights in a row, will be back at the end of the month with friends.
Food was Yummy .. all u can eat mussels.. Jermayne our Server Was the best... Pork Belly app was delicious!!! We loved everything
I've been to 39 Rue de Jean's original restaurant in Charleston several times and, while it's always loud, the meals have been excellent. Thus, I was excited to take my party to the Savannah output.
Unfortunately, the restaurant itself has nowhere near the presence of the original; instead, it is, in fact, the hotel restaurant for a downscale chain hotel. Still, we were enthusiastic about the possibility of good food and, while it didn't wow us, our first course was solid enough.
The main course, though? Three orders wrong out of three. My steak, ordered medium-rare, was medium. The second steak, ordered medium, came out very near rare and it took two trips back to the kitchen (the rest of us were nearly done with our dinners) to get it served medium-well. The third diner had ordered truffle fries which came out plain -- instead of remaking them, the waiter put a shot of truffle oil (which isn't exactly a dipping sauce) on the table.
While this might have been simply an off night for the kitchen, there are lots of places to eat in Savannah and I'm not there that often. I won't be back.
