“Wow!”

We ate here one day for lunch AND dinner. The staff was fantastic and the food was superb. I could recommend this place to anyone. Order the Prosecco and a lamb sandwich, amazing!

“Just alright”
Reviewed January 20, 2013 via mobile

If you like to wait for food, as if you were in France, then this place is great. Unfortunately we ordered sushi and it was just ok. That was disappointing. The French onion soup was good, not great, but it looked pretty and was a huge portion. Overall, I wasn't impressed and wouldn't return...very slow service.

“Great Lunch Spot!!”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

Came highly recommended by several friends and we are glad we tried it for lunch. So good we went back again 2 days later. Great selection of sandwiches and salads, sushi(yes Sushi), wines and very friendly staff, not your typical French attitude. We were dining with our 2 young boys, who know how to behave in a restaurant but still would probably not recommend bringing them in for dinner. Be safe fellow family tripadvisors and stick with lunch, try the mussels as an appetizer with several flavors to choose from you cant go wrong.

“Go for it.”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

Great spot away from the main drag and some really good food. It can get a little crowded and loud, but that should not turn you away from this place. Have the muscles and some wine and relax. Rue has been around for a long time and hopefully will continue to be. You can go for a lunch, a happy hour, or a romantic dinner. Either way, you can't go wrong.
