Food was wonderful and a great surprise. Eggplant beignets were yummy, as was the quiche. Loved the snapper fritter but it was a little salty. The salad was perfectly dressed. Our waitress accommodated our need for a quick turnaround. It could have been quieter for talking, it was mostly the music, great music, just a little bit loud. Will definitely go back.

The pasta was very salty and after waiting fir quite some time for the mussels they arrived without any broth and did not taste fresh at all. Disappointing.

This restaurant is great. The food is incredibly good, with interesting combinations that bring out flavors to enjoy. The chef and side dish preparers are meticulous and take care with each step. The menu varies to take advantage of seasonal availability. The desserts are equally wonderful. Just the water service demonstrates their overall care for customers, being frequent without intrusiveness. Love dining here and bringing friends.

We sat outside, it was a beautiful evening. Food was great as always and our service was great!! She was so sweet. It was my friend’s birthday and they made a fuss which was so nice. Also I love that the server always remembers me and my favorite dish. (Fish in brown butter) Highly recommend!!

First time checking out Rue Saint-Marc did not disappoint. The place is absolutely beautiful and welcoming. Everyone I encountered was warm and kind, giving service with a smile. Ms. Mary was our server and she was such a delight! The food was tasty, rich in flavor but not overpowering in anyway - thoroughly enjoyable. Lunch felt like a beautiful and light French fare. I’ll definitely be returning and hope to bring more friends to enjoy this lovely Jacksonville restaurant.

It is hard to say what I like best about Rue Saint-Marc. Gabrielle has designed the most complete drink menu and the custom-made beverages were SO Delicious and even the "MockTails" prepared for the non-alcohol guests in our party were especially superb. Chef Scott Alters runs a kitchen with a passion and energy that is evident in every dish that comes out. The fish we had was fresh and cooked perfectly, moist, flaky and quite delicious. And the salads were crisp and refreshing. The wine list is extensive. It is always a pleasure to find a restaurant that has a such a friendly, casual feel and still has extremely high quality food, cooked perfectly and served with care. This is my favorite Jacksonville Restaurant. I would suggest that you treat yourself to this tremendous dining experience with a caveat - once you dine at the Rue Saint-Marc, it may very well ruin you for other restaurants that you now find acceptable !

Went early 5:30 before Lyle Lovett concert. Loved the lengthy cocktail menu. Quiet inside this early. Eggplant beignets were delicious. Pate needed more of the mustard and was too cold so hard to spread on the bread. Husband said hamburger was good and it looked yummy. Had the peach salad which could have used a little more of everything but was good.

Server was less than polite to us.
She would not let me order the burger at 6:05 she said it was on the
happy hour menu that ended at 6.
I was OK with that until I noticed several other servers delivering
burgers to different tables after that.
We stopped a server passing by and asked him and we we told they let children order
the burger after 6. The only problem with that is they were serving them to adults.
The drinks were good and the food we ordered was good but the server was less than satisfactory.

Headed to Rue before The Rolling Stones concert and while they were packed they didn’t miss a beat. From the cocktails, apps and entrees everything was spot on as usual. Scott and Gabby continue to have one of the most creative and chef inspired restaurants in Jacksonville.

Reservation was ready when we arrived. Server immediately asked if we were attending the Rolling Stones concert and if we were on a time table. We appreciated this focus and he was fabulous. Got us served with OUTSTANDING FOOD and we were on our way 10 minutes early. Love Rue Saint-Marc.

After longing to try their food, I finally made a reservation on OpenTable for lunch. I can't even begin to tell you about the awesome food and service. The Flounder Meuniere literally melted in my mouth. It was so good I haven't been able to forget it! Do yourself a favor...reserve a table and enjoy. You can thank me later!
