Diner Reviews
  • "Consistently provides excellent customer service and high quality food!"
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "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."

  • "Rendevous does a good job of melding all the Asian foods into an exceptional menu."

  • "Our server was very attentive and had good recommendations about the food."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "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"

  • "Everything we had was fantastic! Especially the walnut shrimp. Awesome wine list."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "There isn't a time I go to Rendezvous that I don't order their ribs. But this particular time for lunch, they were moist almost in a fall off the bone stage with very little fat to sort out and these are the ribs that make my world go round! I have not been here for lunch before. No drunken businessmen, no crying children, not loud at all. Just perfect for an afternoon meeting!"
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "Rendezvous was great I have dined at La Botega in Nappa Valley and could compare the level of cuisine at half the price. The Rendezvous is equally suited for a romantic dinner or an upscale lunch. Great food, great service, always great!"
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Del Mar rendezvous was great. It's a pretty small place right on the main strip in Del Mar. They called me after I made the reservation to let me know about the special Valentine's Day menu. We had the Seared Ahi, Calamari, walnut shrimp and a seafood meal I can't remember the name of. Food was great, staff was plesant and accommodating."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Chef Tony cooks up the freshest, tastiest, healthist Asian Fusion this side of Asia! The flavors pop and the food melts in your mouth. High quality food for protein eaters vegetarians and gluten-frees. Try it. You'll love it!"
    Dined on 2/12/2014
  • "We had a top notch experience. The food was creative and of excellent quality and quantity. The server had good recommendations. He was polite, knowledgeable and friendly. We joined the loyalty club which gave us additional options at a good price. I would definitely dine here again and look forward to bringing friend next time!"

  • "It is nice to have a place to get excellent Chinese food in North County San Diego."
    Dined on 1/31/2014
  • "I made a reservation and the restaurant called and informed me that it sat me by the door, so they gave me the option to keep the table by the door or eat on their covered and heated outside patio. I chose to eat outside. I appreciate that they gave me the option instead of just leaving at a table a foot away from the door. Then when we arrived at the restaurant, we were seated quickly because our table was already prepared and waiting for my date and I. Then the whole time at the restaurant the wait staff, not just our waiter, was very attentive and always making sure that we had everything we neededh. It was nice. Definitely a rare experience. The food was great! I would definitely recommend this restaurant for a date night!"
    Dined on 1/31/2014
  • "On Sunday and Wednesday they have half off wine and on Monday there is no corkage fee so these are excellent nights to check out their very delicious food. Appetizers are great and we love their special Walnut Shrimp. They have a good selection of vegetarian items so it is good for foodies with diverse tastes."
    Dined on 1/27/2014
  • "Excellent service. All servers were extremely professional yet warm and personable. We felt like we were at home with our family."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "We are regulars, but it is one of my wife's favorite restaurants so we added it to the birthday weekend agenda. It did not disappoint. It is the best Chinese food in North County, if not the entire county. Every restaurant has slight variability from visit to visit and Rendezvous is no exception; on Sunday the food was EXCEPTIONALLY good. The black bean fish was the best it has ever been. The cashew tofu was very light on cashews; my wife mentioned it to the waiter and it was remade immediately, with a mention of thanks from Kevin, the manager, for letting them know. The Sunday night wine deal is unbeatable with a fantastic wine list. And everyone who works there is very sweet to our budding 6-year-old foodie."

  • "We have been looking for a good Chinese restaurant in North County for a long time. This will probably be our new go-to place. If you want food that is a cut above Chin's, and don't want to drive to Convoy Street or L.A.., this is a good alternative. The dumpling appetizers were not the best, but the entrees were very good. Our party ordered four entrees (and therefore got two appetizers free) the special beef dish and the fish in black bean sauce were both wonderful. Lemon chicken and Imperial shrimp were light and tasty. They do have outside dining, but the view is limited, and the passing traffic made inside look like a better choice. Service is quick and friendly. Overall a good night out."

  • "Great as always - other than an annoying group next to us using flash lights to read the menu and being rude to staff, classy."
    Dined on 1/10/2014
  • "Food is always great. It is more expensive than some but the quality is consistently high and there are great vegetarian choices, perhaps the best in the area."
    Dined on 1/3/2014
  • "Very good food and on certain nights a wine bonus. We just ate with friends on a Monday for the free corkage on wine which can be quite a saving. The food is excellent and there is an amazing variety of menu items including lots of vegetarian options. On Sunday and Wednesdays the wine list is mostly half priced so those are good nights also. They also have a happy hour."
    Dined on 12/30/2013
  • "Our expectations were exceeded! Dim sum, entrees and wines were exceptional. Outstanding vegetarian menu with extensive choices. Will be back frequently and highly recommend to all."
    Dined on 12/25/2013
  • "Our dinner at DM Rendez-vous was enjoyable. The food was good, but expensive for a Chinese restaurant. It was nicely presented and thoughtfully served."
    Dined on 12/24/2013
  • "The waiter was very nice but kept leaving before taking everyone's orders. Felt stuffed in a corner for company party and could not hear folks on the other end. A bit loud and were crammed next to young family which kind of made our holiday business celebration a bit awkward. Yet, food was outstanding and wine very good, dessert excellent and price very fair. The really hard things are covered: great food, wine, dessert and friendly people at a fair price. So, my sense is that I will come back with my family, but not for a "serious" meal where I may spend $1000+. If they can re-configure seating, placement and ambiance to accommodate such groups, then I will return for business meals and recommend it to friends and colleagues. Good luck!"

  • "Wait staff were friendly, engaging and on top of all aspects of our dining experience. Took the foodie-gourmand parents here & they they really enjoyed their meal (as did the rest of the group). Thanks, DMR!"

  • "I have been to this restaurant twice now with friends and have not found a thing on the menu that wasn't fabulous. I've been with a friend who is vegetarian and gluten free and we found their veggie and gluten-free menus to be amazing. Truly fabulous. I would heartily recommend this restaurant to anyone who is looking for fine Chinese food with many options for healthy eating - and just as many for those who still eat meat and fish. I can't say enough good things about this place."
    Dined on 11/26/2013
  • "This is the best Chinese food I have had in 30 years. Such a great find!"
    Dined on 11/23/2013
  • "I did not find the food to be extraordinary in any way. It was fine, but not worth recommending to anyone."
    Dined on 11/8/2013
  • "Definitely enjoyed eating here. The food was just the right portion and worth every penny. Will become a regular option every time I'm back home in San Diego."
    Dined on 11/7/2013
  • "…and everyone found something they loved. Easy vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, and full carnivore options! Even the kids were hooked. The food was great! Highly recommended."
    Dined on 11/3/2013
  • "Favorites are the Black Bean Fish, the gluten free noodles, the Mongolian steak."
    Dined on 10/20/2013
  • "I've been here several times now. Food is great-a big menu with lots of options for vegetarians too. Atmosphere is cozy without being confining. Good for dates or just hanging out with friends. Service was fantastic. The manager was really inviting. Parking is abundant in garage. Definitely give it a try!"
    Dined on 10/12/2013
  • "A friend and I went for lunch and were amazed at the variety of items available for "special" eaters. We are both vegetarian, one is gluten-intolerant, and the special menus were wonderful. It is unusual to find such extensive choices. The food was plentiful and good. The service excellent. I will be going back again."
