Del Mar Rendezvous
New to North CountyHave been searching for good Asian cuisine. I've found it!
Everything fresh, delicious and served by friendly people. Old standards with new presentation....like sweet and sour chicken and Kung Pao. Rendezvous specialties that set the cuisine at the top.
I've already invited friends for a return visit.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMhonored our requestWe requested a 'quiet corner' so we could sit and enjoy a conversation with our friends, and this is exactly what we got. The noise level was very low, we could talk without having to shout. The meal was great and the atmosphere calm and pleasant. Thank you!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMFound our Chinese restaurantMy wife was always complaining that there were no good Chinese restaurants in Del Mar, now we finally found one. The tastes were great, the service was spectacular and the portions were Goldilocks good.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMNever DisappointingWe have been "regulars" at Rendezvous from the time they opened many years ago. Why does one go back to a restaurant time after time? Great, fresh food lovingly and expertly prepared! The menu is varied and innovative and there is something for every type of diet. Gluten Free, Vegetarian, Meat Lover, Fish Afficianado and those tempted by dessert.
The staff is attentive, but not intrusive, and will listen to your needs. And by the way, we are not the only "regulars" at Rendezvous...it's truly the best Asian Fusion in San Diego!6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently very good foodConsistently very good food and service; some of the dishes are outstanding.

We are always very happy after dining there!5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst Time and Will Be BackWe are locals and this is the first time we have been to the Del Mar Rendezvous restaurant. We were VERY pleasantly surprised and how good everything was. We were expecting run of the mill Chinese food, but the food was fantastic. The imperial shrimp was my favorite, and their menu is huge, so we will be back to try other things. The person that seated us wasn't overly friendly, but our server Paul made up for that. He was great. Looking forward to the next time.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMThe firecracker calamari wasThe firecracker calamari was outstanding! My husband had Kung Pao beef and I had the Triple S Chicken. The beef was very tender, but wasn't as spicy as he would have liked. He added Siracha to help with the spice and liked it much better. The Triple S chicken was very good! Spicy with a little sweetness! Definitely would order again. We would recommend this restaurant for people looking for a nice Chinese food experience!4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMA fantastic dining experience.This isn't your average Chinese restaurant. We had the egg flower soup, seared sesame ahi, walnut shrimp, braised beef and egg fried rice. All excellent. Both my wife and I said it was the best meal we've had in months. In other reviews we heard that the portions were small - we found them to be perfect for an average adult seeking unique flavors vs. volume. We will definitely be back and would highly recommend Del Mar Rendezvous.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food; service very good.Great food; service very good.

One of the best restaurants in Del Mar.3/11/2013 12:00:00 AMSalute to the ShrimpThis has been a favorite of ours for many years -- one of the most reliable dining experiences in the area. They never have an off-night. One of the many highlights is the shrimp -- regardless of the preparation, these are always fresh, tender, meaty, and delicious. On this visit, three of us each ordered a different shrimp dish (walnut, with lobster sauce, and Kung Pao), and all were terrific. Very highly recommended3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMCannot wait to go back!Absolutely one of the best dinners we have had in a very long time! We had one appetizer and three main dishes. They were all wonderful, but the best by far was the "Triple S Chicken" which has a Sriracha sweet and sour sauce - just amazing! We also enjoyed the Mongolian Steak, the Ma Po Tofu (a total test dish for me at Chinese places, and they did it well, winning my vote), and BBQ spare ribs to start. Then, we decided to enjoy some dessert too - the Chocolate Wipe Out (oh, wow!) - and some fantastic sparkling Moscato, even better at half price being a Wed. night. The service was quick and very friendly (thanks, Andres), and it was great having validated parking in the lot behind the center. We will absolutely be back!3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstandingThe best lamb chops I've had in years! And the service was right on spot whenever I needed it and never kept me waiting long at all, all my needs were met with the snap of a finger and everyone was exceptionally professional, outstanding would be the general word I'd use for everything about this place and have already recommended to friends and co workers, my girlfriend said it was a date she'd remember forever, so they also added brownie point to my night!2/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
