I did not have a good experience here. I walked in and was handed the brunch menu. Nothing on it is marked as gluten-free, even though there were some things that appeared they natively would be gluten free. The server told me that if it wasn't marked gluten-free on the menu they would not modify any of their dishes to be gluten free. Literally nothing on the menu indicated any food allergy awareness.I got up and left. I don't know if he was confused, because I have seen other reviews stating that they had good gluten-free experiences here, or if they've changed something. But I just got up and left.
— Not at all
— No gluten-free information on the menu
Excellent service and food! Staff was very knowledgeable about celiac and other food allergies. Chef was familiar with preparing food for celiacs. I highly recommend. I got the salmon with risotto and asparagus. Great wine selection too!
— Separate gluten-free menu
This was the MOST phenomenal place in my trip to Charleston. I’m so excited to come back. I got Coq au Vin and it was absolutely amazing. Words cannot describe. My boyfriend and I were even debating coming back the week we were there because it was so good. Several items can be made gluten free and/or are naturally gluten free so you really can’t go wrong. Also, exceptional service.
Very slow service but excellent steak, mashed potatoes and creme brule
Fries are not gf. Goat cheese grilled chocken salad gf and wonderful. creme brûlée is gf amd excellent
The food was good, but the service was terrible
Staff extremely knowledgeable and careful. Best trout ever and my husband loved the GF duck breast special. Will go again.
I’ve been here a few times and both times I’ve learned that I can have (at lunch) the potato soup and the coq au vin. Both are tasty, but I always leave hungry. I’ll go there if with others, but I won’t choose to go there on my own. I haven’t tried the dinner menu. Staff knowledgeability and communication has varied, with some servers doing everything they can to answer questions and make sure I know they know how to talk to the kitchen, while others basically are like yeah sure ok. YMMV.
They do not have a specific GF menu but our server was very knowledgeable about what I could eat! Food was delicious and service was amazing! I had the truffle potato soup and pork chop!
Amazing food and very celiac friendly. One of my favorite Charleston dining experiences by far! I had the filet and creme brûlée.
I have been here a couple of times when visiting Charleston and usually have a great meal. Last night, the waitress seemed offended when I asked about gluten free options and or a GF menu. “We don’t have a separate menu....what do you want?” Upon finding out the French Onion soup was not GF (in the past they made me a cup without croutons And I had no problem) she recommended the Truffle Potato soup, which I ordered. 20 minutes later, still no waitress or soup, so we moved to the bar which offered only slightly better service and recommendations. The food did not taste that good and i could not finished. I began to have my tell tale gluten exposure symptoms as we were leaving. I am betting it was the soup...but I also ate Coq a Vin. I will probably not be back despite previously having eaten here without a problem. Multiple strikes in one visit, and the servers and or kitchen did not deliver GF food despite what was told.
Many GF options, pork chops, salmon, chicken, and sushi! Sadly the duck and the rabbit are not. But a lot gf dessert options. Staff was very knowledgeable and helpful. Food was very well prepared. Will go again.
My goodness -- we stopped here after the restaurant we'd initially tried was full. I'm so glad it was -- amazing is the best word for 39 Rue de Jean. The hostess was wonderful--I asked upon entering if they could accommodate my allergies/food issues (gluten, dairy, tree nuts). She knew they could with two of them but wanted to double check so brought out her manager. He was wonderful! He went back to speak to the chef and came out and told me what they could do before even seating us. We had a wonderful meal with an excellent server -- they were able to cook around my allergies, and service was impeccable. I don't go out much anymore as it is, so traveling and going out to a place other than a chain where I know they can work with me can be daunting. I highly recommend.
One of my regular places. I've never had a reaction. The steak heche, steak au poivre, and duck confit salad have all worked out well.
You couldn't have a more pleasurable dining experience than at 39 Rue de Jean, which is off of King Street near the Visitors Center. Our waiter was very knowledgeable about gluten-free and was sure to let us know what menu items were naturally gluten-free. Additionally, he told us that the chef and staff like to refer to 39 Rue de Jean as a "yestaurant," as in, yes, we can accommodate you and we will make changes to menu items so you can enjoy them.
