Diner Reviews
  • "I'm not really a Chinese Food fan, but I think I've been converted!! Outstanding food and service. We thought perhaps with the locale, we might get good food but in tiny portions like most "fancy" restaurants. We were pleasantly surprised with perfect sized portions of amazing food. The beef was so tender, it melted in our mouths. We can't wait to go back and next time, we'll bring our 7 year because he'll love it too!"

  • "Best Hot and Sour Soup I have ever eaten! Great service and very friendly staff. Always enjoy the Walnut Shrimp and the duck wraps."

  • "This place being best Chinese restaurant in Del Mar five years running means real Chinese food fans should travel to another North County town if they want good Chinese fare. The hot and sour soup was neither- it's just egg drop soup with soy sauce added for color with one piece of tofu and one paper-thin mushroom. The entrees were just okay, but the prices were outrageously high. We spend a week at a nearby spa every summer and will never go to Del Mar Rendezvous again."

  • "Now that the County Fair is over we returned to Del Mar Rendezvous recently. We had been avoiding the traffic, but we missed the great food. It was such a pleasure to taste those honey glazed spareribs again! They are so tender and the meat just falls off the bones. We also had one of my favorite dishes, the Five Spice Braised Beef. Here too the meat is wonderfully tender and the baby bok choy is a perfect accompaniment. The servings are large enough that I was able to bring almost half of this dish along with some of the wor wanton soup home for a second excellent meal this week. The service here is always excellent as well. I highly recommend this restaurant."

  • "Great food and wonderful vegetarian menu that has a lot of vegan options as well. The service was great and the food was flavorful. I found there too be too much sweet flavors at times but you could ask for spicier."

  • "Another wonderful evening meal at Rendezvous. Our party started in Coronado and found ourselves running late for a 7:00 pm reservation. A call ahead meant no- problems and we were met with a warm and gracious welcome! The service has been getting better and better and it's clear that this is from a dedicated management that has a great focus on the details that make dining gracious and comfortable. The food is consistently well prepared and for our taste, some of the best Chinese cusine in San Diego. That's what makes this a local favorite for us and so many others."

  • "Del Mar Rendezvous is always a perfect choice for lunch. This time we were in need of vegetarian options and we found lots of delicious choices! My friend and I enjoyed the ample portions and even took home some leftovers. I now will be recommending Del Mar Rendezvous to my veggie friends!"

  • "Some of the food items were nice. They messed up the order for us, we asked for veggie Singapore Konnyaku which is supposed to be spicy, but what we got was no where close to be even mildly spicy. Another friend ordered with egg same dish, which was totally different. The waiter also forgot to put our fried rice order. It felt we were a burden for the waiter that day, he didn't even smile. Other people who came to put the food on table were more friendly."

  • "The menu is very eclectic with a remarkably interesting take on standard Chinese themes, as well as many Japanese favorites. Excellent quality preparation and one of the finest, least expensive wine lists in San Diego County."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "This was a spot recommended by locals - menu was extensive and food was quite good! Decent wine list and plenty of choices."
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "This is the ONLY Chinese restaurant my family can eat at, due to many special dietary needs. The staff at Del Mar Rendezvous is always so patient and accommodating, and we love the food. This has become one of our "go to" places to eat - great for those of us who need to scrutinize the ingredients, and those of us who don't. There aren't many places like this around, where instead of feeling like a nuisance, we feel like they will go out of their way to make us happy."

  • "I don't understand the rating on Zagat. I thought they knew how to rate restaurants accurately, but in this case they were totally wrong. The food was only fair, average at best and the décor and ambience of the restaurant was very boring and average. The outdoor seating is on the street and noisy, which was not mentioned anywhere. I was disappointed because I took a friend there for his birthday, thinking it would be " the best Chinese food in San Diego" and I assumed because it was in Del Mar, that it would be really nice. Wrong and Wrong. I've had just as good or better at cheaper and poorer rated Chinese restaurants. The only thing that was above average was the service. Nice , friendly, attentive staff."

  • "The food is excellent- Chinese dishes made with skill and imagination. Service is attentive yet not overbearing. "

  • "Since we'd been fighting off colds, my husband and I wanted to have some soup. The war wonton soup here was excellent. We also enjoyed the very tasty honey glazed spareribs that are so tender the meat literally falls off the bones. Finally, we had a bit of the chicken lettuce wraps and some mango sorbet for dessert. I'm even looking forward to the leftovers tomorrow. It was all delicious."

  • "Our favorite restaurant by far. Food is outstanding every time we are there."

  • "GREAT menu of delicious food. Even have separate menus for Vegetarian & Gluten Free!! Wish there was one closer to where I live! (I'm vacationing in Del Mar.)"

  • "I've been to this restaurant a few times and have had consistently good experiences. Saturday night was no different."

  • "I am amazed at the consistency of the great food at Del Mar Rendezvous. In what is probably our 30th visit we always order one of our favorites and something new. It is always great. Two of the four of us ordered too much on purpose planning to take the extra home for lunch. Nothing made it off the table. Try anything, you will love it!"

  • "We have been here a handful of times now since moving to Oceanside last summer. I'm so glad we discovered this restaurant! This time we had the beef with broccoli and some baby bok choy as well as wor wanton soup, spring rolls, and spareribs. The bok choy was cooked with a good bit of garlic, but it was quite tasty. We have yet to discover a dish that isn't good here. I love the spareribs; the meat falls off the bones and it is wonderful. The service is excellent too."
    Dined on 5/5/2014
  • "We love the Del Mar Rendezvous because they have a Vegan menu and will make the food the way you want it. Wednesdays and Sundays they have a half-priced wine list with a lot of choices that makes purchasing wine with a meal very reasonable."
    Dined on 4/30/2014
  • "Food was good, but not great. Some dishes I probably wouldn't even call good. Calamari had far too much breading and no meat. Dan Dan noodles were very bland. Kung Pao Chicken and Peppered Steak tenderloin w/ broccoli were good main dishes. Also, nice selection of $20 bottles of wine, but Probably won't be heading back here anytime soon. "
    Dined on 4/25/2014
  • "I loved the service. I was taking my daughter and her friends out for her birthday and the waiter was incredibly patient and understanding with my large and confused group of young people. The food was excellent and the staff made my daughter's birthday a wonderful experience."
    Dined on 4/25/2014
  • "I love Rendezvous. My only complaint is that for the price the portions are somewhat small. Great for a woman but my husband and sons are still starving when we leave."
    Dined on 4/25/2014
  • "Far and away THE best Asian Fusion restaurant in San Diego County! Always fresh ingredients prepared in inovative ways. The wait staff is friendly and efficient, the atmosphere upscale casual and the location near Del Mar's beach an extra bonus."
    Dined on 4/25/2014
  • "What a wonderful surprise to fine so many delectable dishes here. We didn't know the restaurant had won so many awards before we went there. Every dish was wonderful. Large menu selection. Great service. Nice location. I would go back again and again."
    Dined on 4/22/2014
  • "We have always thought Rendezvous to be the best Chinese restaurant in the Del Mar/Solana Beach area (I know, not much competition any more). Our entire party was dismayed by food from the get-go. Potstickers came with a flavorless sauce that could have been half water. It didn't get any better. Most of the food went uneaten. What happened to the old Rendezvous?!"

  • "We live in the area and dine here when we are craving an Asian "experience". It is more upscale and pricy, but very consistant and always good. Our favorite is the Imperial Shrimp. I do not ever want to know how many calories are in this dish, but its great, and we are always amazed at how long it stays hot! The staff is very friendly and accomodating, and it turns out I know the manager from another restaurant I used to frequent long ago."

  • "Very surprised to see a well developed, affordable wine list at a Chinese restaurant. The food was not greasy or overdone. Lots of housemade items on the menu."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "There are lots of good choices including many vegetarian options. We enjoy going on Mondays for free corkage or on Sunday or Wednesday for half priced wine. Our food favorites are the lettuce wraps and the walnut shrimp--wonderful!"

  • "Went into this feeling excited as it was a special occasion. Started out well enough, arrived and seated immediately as we made reservations for our party of five. Placed drink orders and took some time to get them. Server was lax in taking our meal orders, but the food did come out quickly. The server did not refill our waters and I had to get up to find someone to do it for us. As our dinner was winding down, our server was buzzing around all the other tables except for ours. Again, I had to get up from the table and ask the hostess for our bill and return to her kiosk with payment. We won't be bringing our hard-earned money back here again."

  • "This is our favorite restaurant in San Diego. Fantastic food, wine and service, they have it all."
    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "I reserve five star ratings for restaurants that are over the top in all categories so that's the reason for four stars. But as far as Chinese food goes, this is close to five stars. Our wait staff was efficient, helpful and friendly. Can't ask for more. We both had shrimp dishes, shrimp and walnut, and shrimp and scallops, and both were excellent. I'm looking forward to my next visit soon."

  • "Been here a few times before. Really enjoyed it...the food tasty...trendy ambiance.. Fun crowd. BUT, found it disappointing...where the food was concerned really... Everything seemed like it was steamed or boiled very quickly and there was no taste in the stirring up with the sauces and spices. No problem with the service. The restaurant has a great location. Maybe the chefs changed. Would go back if the foods back upto par again"
