We were seated promptly, and the atmosphere was very nice. The She-crab soup as creamy and delectable. The french onion soup was also cheese filled and amazing. I had the quiche and salad which was light and delicious. Another in our party had a tender lamb roast sandwich, which was was both unusual and very good. The french bread was... More

Rue de Jean is one of my favorite restaurants in Charleston so I've been a few times, but I took my mom last night while she's visiting me, and that was her first time. The food was excellent and so was our server, Abigail. She was attentive and accommodating even though the restaurant was quite busy. I meant to speak... More

Good solid food with many choices. Not everyone likes to experiment with local foods. Too bad. They really have good eats.

We walked in with a party of seven, no reservations, and the hostess still made it happen. We've been coming here for six years and throughout that time we have never had a bad meal. With their large and expansive menu they were able to satisfy everyone's different dining desires. Service was professional. Beautiful room and lively atmosphere.

Very friendly service, good ambience, tables far enough apart. Superb range of dishes on the menu. However the food itself does not quite live up to expectations. Great wines!

We have been eating here for 15 years. The menu has stayed mostly the same (They could try some other french dishes) We were both disappointed in our dinners. Scallops St. Jacques for my husband and my trout. Trout bland, dry and swimming in my plate with brown butter smothered with under cooked green bean (haricoverts) Scallops were tops with... More

Their Christmas Grinch wouldn't even offer us a measly seat at the bar. We visited "39 RUDE" on Christmas Eve after a daunting day of 3 tours and shopping, and also based on the recommendation of our hotel concierge. We walked in feeling very hopeful, but were turned away by the hostess who told us that the restaurant, which was... More
