    We absolutely loved everything! The atmosphere was great. The aroma was tantalizing. The food was outstanding. Definitely the place to go for a Special Occasion. The Entrance was a little confusing for my first time driving there in the dark but the handicapped parking spot was perfect for my husband.

    I hav been going to Rendezvous since it opened probably 40+ years ago. I have never had a bad meal. I have ordered the duck fairly often and it was better than ever last night. The birthday gentleman ordered the salmon and he loved it too. My birthday is in 2 months and I will want to go again. My premium martini was small and ho hum. Both glasses of wine were good. No desert although I indulged when my appetite was larger. They are all good!

    The waiter can either make your experience better or way worse. We dine in this restaurant frequently and usually have an excellent service followed by delicious meal. Yesterday we celebrated my son’s bday and as we were ordering our meals and soufflés I mentioned that to the waiter. He acknowledged that. Our appetizer came, and we ordered mussels. We ordered them many times before and enjoyed them always. This time, however, mussels had some sort of strange smell and were absolutely inedible. We asked the server to take them away. I asked if they changed the way they prepare them he said they did not. He never tried to fix the situation or make this any better. We told him the mussels used to be our favorite dish. He did not care, just took them away with the attitude. The rest of the meal was great, however, the server did not put a candle on the soufflé like we asked him to 😞. This was a special occasion and Open Table asks if we are celebrating a special occasion. What is the reason for that inquiry if the server does not follow through and does not try to make the occasion special? I did not expect a free dessert I just wanted a candle on one of the 2 soufflés I ordered for dessert. Bottom line we will not be going back any time soon.

    What a pleasant surprise for an unassuming spot. The service was congenial as soon as we walked in the door; the staff was very attentive, and the food portions were more than adequate. (My partner and I split the mussels, soup and Beef Wellington.) Would highly recommend!

    We enjoyed the salmon and sea bass with capers entrées and their accompaniments very much. The house salad is delicate and fresh. And the crème brulée is all one could ask for. The food was served graciously and in a reasonable time. We ordered a bottle of muscadet for the 3 of us, but after the first pour, no one came back to offer more and the bucket was situated so that no on could reach it without getting up. An alert waiter (not ours) saw us discussing the situation and came over to refill for us, leaving about 1 glass worth in the bottle. Although a server looked at it in a cursory way, we were never offered the remainder. More attention should be paid. Also, the water glasses are so big that only a man's hand would be comfortable holding and picking them up.

    40th Anniversary Celebration dinner The dining room is elegant and everyone was celebrating a special occasion tonight. Men in suits, ladies in nice dresses and heels. We’re from the PNW and people don’t dress up for dinner like this there. Dinner and service were great, everything we had was delicious from beginning to end with a beautiful Grand Marnier soufflé.

    This is an outstanding Classic French restaurant in Tucson, comparable to excellent French restaurants in places like New York, Chicago, and San Francisco! A true gem in Tucson! Tonight we enjoyed the pate appetizer and onion soup and the wonderful Cabrillo and steak frites entrees! Servers are friendly and knowledgeable. Place is charming with a choice of a more casual or more formal dining room options, offering the same menu. Important to have a reservation, as it is very popular. We love this restaurant!

    As usual, Le Rendezvous was a fantastic evening out. Always bustling, filled dining room, but very quaint. The staff was as friendly and accommodating as usual, and the menu did not disappoint. We appreciate the significant wine list, just wish there were more French red wine options by the glass. The food was great, even though the tenderloin was slightly overcooked (asked for med rare, was more like medium/medium well) but still tasted great. The Beef Wellington with the fois gras and truffle gave it a unique taste, and the Grand Marnier soufflé was phenomenal. We love to dine here, and will continue to.

    This is a fabulous original French cuisine restaurant . If you’re longing for a delightful French meal that is hard to find, this is the place. We started with a glass of Pernod, salad, beet & cheese stack, butter garlic escargot, scallops in a cheese sauce, followed by steak and fries. We were too full for dessert so we’ll be back for the Grand Marnier soufflé another time.
