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!

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.

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.

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.

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.
