    Although I've been here several times, I decided to try something new and I was not disappointed. I stayed with the tried and true Fried Goat Cheese salad first, but then had the Rosemary Garlic Gnocchi for an entree. As with all that I've had here, it was positively delicious. So far I've never been disappointed with the food or the service.

    We had dinner here on the first night of our honeymoon. They gifted us not only with complimentary champagne flutes, but excellent and personable service. The food was also delicious. Seriously the best French onion soup I’ve ever eaten! And you can’t skip out on the fresh French bread! Definitely recommend!

    Just a great dining experience. The food was excellent. I had a bowl of mussels as an appetizer and seared grouper as the entree. The grouper was the fresh catch. We loved the atmosphere, and our waiter, Dwayne, was terrific. He made it a fun evening. It was our first time to 39 Rue de Jean, but it won't be the last.

    Our meal was good but not exceptional. We both started with onion soup which was good, although we both thought it was unusually salty. A Caesar salad looked wonderful, but the dressing was very restrained in flavor - perhaps more Dijon mustard in the mix would be better? My entree of coq au vin was similarly restrained in flavor and fell a bit short of high expectations; however, my wife like her entree of roasted duck leg very much. We passed on dessert. Service was fine but unexceptional. All in all, a good meal but not a great meal - and there's a ton of outstanding competition in Charleston.

    the restaurant was made to look like a French bistro- frosted mirrors, white paper table cloths, etc.; the menu reads like French bistro, but... the food was unacceptable: the most appalling aspect was there were NO onions in the (French) onion soup. In addition, the moules mareniere were over cooked and came to the table barely warm. This is someone's idea of a French bistro who has never been to France.
