The staff was friendly & took all covid guideline precautions into consideration. Our meals were delicious. We were supposed to sit outside but because of a storm they accommodated us inside. Definitely try the moules... excellent as an appetizer!

Great food. We were supposed to be in France but due to the pandemic we are in Charleston. Decided to try it on a whim. Great choice!

Sublime is the word I use to describe our anniversary dinner at Rue de Jean. Though you can pay more at other Charleston restaurants it's hard to beat this bistro for value.

Food was excellent, service was great. However, for outside seating they do need to install bug zappers or some other method to control the flies.

Was truely looking forward to a great dinning experience, but was let down. Limited menu. Not offering full service as advertised on website. Also, no dessert available? Hubby even ordered burger and fries, which is very rare for us. As a birthday celebration, I was highly dissatisfied. After taking a Uber from North Charleston to celebrate...it was a waste of $60 and our time.

Beautiful courtyard dining experience! We went just days after the riots and all the broken glass was fixed; everything looked put back together. Food was great. Onion soup gratinee and maison salad were delicious! Very attentive service. Would recommend!

Excellent as always! Happy to have them open again. Best dish- mussels, by far. Sat outside so the noise level might have been a bit more so than inside.

Nothing to say other than amazing all the way around.

Rue de Jean is in the early stages of opening back up, so things were a little strange. The menu was limited, and we sat out in Hudson Alley with Ø ambiance.

BUT! We are thrilled to see them at least open and ramping their way up to whatever the new "normal" will be. No doubt they'll be back to their usual high level very soon.

The martinis were top-notch, the steak frites was its usual self, and we got TRUFFLE FRIES!!!!!

Thanks RdJ for all of the hard work to open again. À bientôt.

Excellent mussels and burger. The pomme frites were good but seemed to have been sitting around after first part of cook. They were good but could have been better.
Service was friendly and very good. We ate dinner outside due to Corona and had a good time

Have always had a great experiences at Rue, and this visit was what we hoped for. Our server Kristy was great, friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. We had the steak salad and the steak and fries. Everything was cooked perfectly. Always a solid choice for a meal in Charleston.

My wife and I celebrated our 42 wedding anniversary here and with Shannon's help I concocted a little surprise for her which went over very well. Dinner was splendid. We have been dinning at Rue de Jean on special occasions for over 10 years. Never have we been disappointed.

Due to Colvin there were not a lot of menu options or your typical French cuisine. The manager explained that since they had just reopened their menu was limited. The food that we did get though was delicious and the service was great. Prices were a little high but we would definitely go back there again once things start picking up.
