This is definitely one of our “go to” places when we are celebrating a special event or when we want to provide a special treat to visitors.

Both entrees, steak frites and beef Wellington were done perfectly, well season and the meats were tender. Can’t wait to go back and try several other options that looked great!

A genuine French restaurant with fairly pricey dishes. It's tasty, but be ready with your credit card.

Solid Tucson Favorite - We often go to Le Rendez-vous with friends when we want a dependably nice meal and a Grand Marnier souffle. We prefer the dining room, which has the feel of a country restaurant rather than the bistro area, but both are fine. The French dishes, such as onion soup, mussels, and pepper steak are reliably good, but tonight we tried the shrimp risotto special, veal appetizers, and salads. Our server did a nice job, the drinks were great, and the food was quite nice. We will be back (again).

So happy that LRV is open for indoor dining. Still our favorite restaurant since moving to Tucson 15 years ago. The Escargots are a great starter. We had the Chateaubriand for 2 - excellent. Though, my all time favorite is Canard Montmorency! Have the Grand Marnier to end a great dinner. The staff is always friendly and attentive. Eric, our server, was spot on. Definitely give LRV a try and relax to a great dinner.

If you are looking for great French food; this is clearly Tucson's best.... Not long on ambiance; but, the service is attentive and friendly. Don't expect to be "in and out" fast, take your time and enjoy their great food and drinks....

We've been patronizing LR for 5 years; they never disappoint! My wife and I ate at LR on Nov. 4, 2020 for dinner. For pre dinner starters we had the pear salad and escargot; both were excellent. For dinner, my wife had the scallops and I had the duck in kirsch sauce--both absolutely delicious. LR is a solid 4+ restaurant and we highly recommend it. I have also left a Yelp review.

Our french onio soup was sort of coolish and average. My dish of duck had to be sent back to the kitchen because the food was not hot.he service was slow even though there were few customers. somewhat disappoi.nting.It was quiet so we could converse.Dessert,a small pastry for $10 was not worth it.

Best French restaurant in town and one of the best restaurants in Tucson, period! Highly recommended for special occasions and everyday dining. Chateau Briand and Beef Wellington are spectacular as are the fish preparations. Don't forget the Gran Marnier soufflé for desert

We have attend Le Rendez-vous 5 or 6 times over the past 10 years or so, usually for special occasions. We have always looked forward to attending since our pervious experiences were always very good. This visit was a disappointment. We both had Beef Wellington, one of our favorites and usually very good. This time while the meat was tender, it did not have much favor and was over cooked. Our favorite dessert, the soufflé, was also rather bland. The service was lackluster and not what you would expect for the expense of the place. Finally, although I had indicated this was our anniversary when I made the reservation, no one at the restaurant made any acknowledgement of the fact. We always have had high expectations for Le Rendez-vous in the past and they have usually been met. This time however, we very pretty disappointed. I hope this was just an off night, although it will probably be a while before we return to see if it was.

Our third time at LeRendez-vous in the past two months. We have obviously enjoyed each time. We were in Bistro first and the last two times were in dining area. For a full meal we enjoyed dining room but are looking forward to going back with friends for drinks and small plates in Bistro. Great food, great service!

Our wait staff was so attentive and just generally excellent. Think the waiter was Jerard and sorry but cannot remember the waitress' name... but she was terrific, caring and made sure everything was good, as did Jerard. (Hope I spelled his name correctly.)

Our evening was a success! With so many delectable items to choose from it had us guessing. I ordered the crab and vegetable stuffed shrimp. The crab taste was fresh and wonderful. My date ordered the grilled scallops. He said they were good. We then split the chocolate/cherry cake. Glad we split it because it was rich and delicious. We'll definitely go there again...and not wait for a special occasion!

We recently had a lovely evening at Le Rendez-vous, with perfectly prepared Chateaubriand and of course a wonderful Gran Marnier souffle! We enjoy going to the restaurant on a weeknight as it is usually not as busy, which means a quieter environment and excellent service.

This was a delightful experience - a small intimate restaurant, on the edge of town, serving very high quality French dishes (and on Valentine's Day too! ). One of the great innovations, especially for those of us whose primary culinary interest is taste above quantity, was the series of "small plates" enabling a multitude of "tastings" without volume. We peppered our table with a whole variety and had a virtual "tapas" meal French style. The number and variety was excellent. Thus we ranged through Oysters on the half shell to mussels in white wine and cream, roasted beets au chevre, mini-wellington with truffle demi and duck confit dijonaise. Back this up with wonderful wines (Loire Valley sauvignon blanc and a rich Bordeau) followed by espresso and Cointreau, a charming server, along with the one you love and you have the perfect dining evening.

Too small and few Scallops for the price. The wrong meal first showed up and so, my husband and I couldn’t eat at the same time.
