Rue Saint-Marc is a modern French cafe serving French comfort food in the San Marco neighborhood. We have an extensive cocktail program and a unique wine and craft beer list. The ambiance is stylish while still being quite comfortable. Seating includes tufted leather booths, handmade wooden tables, a beautiful bar-height communal table, bistro-style marble bar and an outdoor patio with various table sizes. An open kitchen allows guests to view the chefs in action. We also offer a wonderful dessert selection, on display in our pastry case. The lunch menu focuses on hand crafted sandwiches and salads, with the dinner menu offering an ever changing array of appetizers and entrees.

Really awesome! Very pleased with my choice of dining there last night. They accommodated us even though my group of 3 swelled to 5 then to 7 at the last minute! Our waiter was totally on top of my allergy issues and my beetroot appetizer and flounder entree were perfect. Everyone cleared out their plates to the last little morsel, then had dessert and coffee. Wines were excellent. Great time and we will be back!

The side room for a larger party was so helpful and fun. The restaurant is beautiful and the menu delightful. I loved the Pate as a starter for the table! Scrumptuous - Thank you!

An outstanding upscale-casual restaurant for my wife's birthday dinner. Food was fantastic. Service was top-notch. Restaurant (bldg.) itself very appealing.

OK. The deal is that this is the most enjoyable casual experience in dining that you will find anywhere in Jacksonville. The food is not only first class as far as quality and presentation is concerned, but it is prepared with care and uniqueness you just don't find in restaurants these days. The wait staff will take care of your every need and the mixologist will make the most delicious drinks and even non-alcoholic libations for your party, while light jazz plays in the background. So if you want a really fun and delicious dining experience at a reasonable price point, look no further than Rue Saint Marc in downtown San Marco in Jacksonville, you will be amazed that food can taste this good. I'm not kidding.

Food took forever and then upon arrival was lukewarm. When asked how our food was we explained that it was cold and they reheated our meals but when they came out they were still cold. The attitude of our server and a woman who I assume was the manager exuded lack of concern, even annoyance with us. The level of service at this restaurant was very low and the food was mediocre. I ordered duck; the flavor was overwhelmed by orange and the presentation was bland. However, the drinks were delicious. This was my first experience at Rue Saint Marc. I was so excited to finally eat at this restaurant but ended up being extremely disappointed.

Had an excellent quality meal. Good (team) service throughout the evening. The place was packed all night for a Wednesday night and the arrival of the entrees was very slow. The rabbit was an excellent preparation and was worth the wait. Even though the entrees are priced fairly high for a "casual French bistro", my only real complaint is the drinks, and in particular the wine, are way overpriced. Will return for another dinner.

My first time at Rue - dinner with friends pre-Elton John concert! Our server Frances was terrific as was all of the wait staff! Your chef accommodated a special request as one of gals in our group was on a special diet. I enjoyed the shrimp etouffé and the C&P Jupiter rice. The mussels, fish meunière, eggplant and a few other appetizers were delicious. Frances recommended the cheesecake and I also ordered the bitter orange tart (one of the IG that I follow raved about it) - our desserts were fantastic.
Drinks and wine were great will be back to sample your craft cocktails. I appreciate the valet service and we all enjoyed the restaurant vibe!

My group goes to Rue for dinner every Tuesday (Ruesday!). I try to work my way through the menu before it changes and honestly haven’t found a dish that I didn’t enjoy. Their special wine paired dinners that they host on a somewhat quarterly basis is an amazing experience.

Pimms cocktail was very refreshing. My friend enjoyed the 5$ mimosas. I didn’t care for the eggs Benedict being served on a home-made biscuit which didn’t allow for the fantastic hollindaise sauce to soak in. The biscuit itself was a bit salty. Eggs were cooked perfectly and the eggplant beignets are a lovely balance of savory and sweet. Will be back!

We had two issues with our visit. We found the venue to be VERY noisy. Hard to carry on a conversation. Also, although the entree menu is not very big, (8 items) they were out of the two items we wanted to order! That seemed unusual for 6:30 on a Saturday night. Having said that, our second choices were in stock and were EXCELLENT! Service was also excellent. Very attentive and informative without being at all overbearing. We will visit again, I'm sure
