    Food was excellent. Minor: Service could be a bit more attentive to things like asking if more bread is wanted, offering ground pepper, asking if guests desire wine poured or leaving it to chill. We asked for something from a gentleman who said "she will get it" - more appropriate to say "I'll let your server know."

    Le Rendez-vous is the perfect place to celebrate a special occasion. The ambience, food, and service are all top-notch. The cocktails are delicious, as well. You can choose to sit in the Bistro, which is more casual and serves small plates, or the restaurant which is more formal and serves a full menu. I would have no hesitation in recommending Le-Rendevous.

    Our 1st table was under a a/c unit and a ceiling fan. We were all cold so asked to be moved. I ordered the fish special-sea bass. It was lukewarm and I couldn’t cut it with a fork and barely with a knife. It wasn’t cooked inside. Sent it back to be cooked more-put in microwave. Fish still was very tough! Couldn’t eat it.

    The staff kept wishing us a happy birthday even though our reservation clearly stated anniversary and we corrected the same people multiple times. The decor was hideous for a restaurant trying to be upscale…especially with prices. The menu was uninspiring to say the least. Recipes from 50+ years ago. I ordered the beef Wellington. The meat was over cooked and the puff pastry was burnt. My wife’s scallop and escargot dish were very good. The bartender made my Old Fashioned correctly, although way too much ice… cheating the amount of alcohol in the drink. The bread was very bland. It appeared not to be made in-house. Possibly frozen and ready-heated? Overall definitely not worth the price.

    It was our first time. We tried all the small plates and an appetizer. Everything was plated well and the taste was excellent. We tried different French wines to match our small plates and had a few surprises between red and whites. But the experience was outstanding. After our tastings, we determined that we would not be wary of any of the entrees.

    They lost my reservation although I had confirmed it twice. They blamed open table stating that this was a regular situation. Our bill was incorrect twice. We have eaten here on numerous occasions and have always found it great in every way. Therefore, I believe this past experience was an anomaly. This rating is only for the last time.

    We definitely enjoyed our Bastille Day dinner. The food was delicious and the decor was festive. Unfortunately however, my husband couldn't get his entree choice because they ran out. He had been looking forward to having the scallops since we booked the reservation. After we'd been seated, the waiter came to take our beverage order and inform us that they were out of scallops. The couple at the table next to us were equally disappointed. Hopefully next year they'll be sure to have more scallops. I know we'll be sure to make a reservation for an earlier time.

    We celebrated La Bastille Day at Le Rendez-vous on July 14, 22. The food was excellent, we ordered every choice of the fix menu, the presentation and flavors were beyond our expectations and the service was on point. We have enjoyed dining with them for 30 years and they never disappoint. We gladly recommend them.

    Have made some repeat visits in the last year with friends who also enjoy it as much as I do. there are many tempting dishes on the menu but I seem to go back often to the same thing. I really like the beet salad with goat cheese and pinenuts, and the St. Jacques. We shared the grand Marnie souffle that you need to pre order when you order your dinner and it is wonderful. The onion soup is great as well as many other dishes.

    Don’t recommend! I usually don’t write reviews but I don't anyone to have to waste there time here. First we were seated right under the air conditioner, it was freezing and water was dripping on me from it. Our waiter took awhile to get over to us. At first we were understanding, it seemed like he was over loaded because there was a big group finishing up, they left. Our service was still slow it took an hour and half to get our food for 2 people. The food was alright but not worth the time spent. We were super excited to try the dessert because we had so long to look at the menu but we decided to leave after our entree we didn’t have another hour to spare. The waiter became dismissive and rude toward us, he was only waiting 5 tables and there was no reason for him to ignore us, he did not ask us how our food was and when we were trying to leave we had to ask for the check and after waiting 15 minutes the hostess had to come and get it, she was super sweet and helpful! If you want okay french food and have 3 hours to spare and a rude waiter this is the place for you!

    We were a party of 4. Two of us came in to be seated while the other two stayed outside for a smoke before they came in. The person seating us brought only 2 menus to the table even though we told her we were a party of 4 and the others were right behind us. The waiter took 15 minutes to greet us and take our drink order. We had to ask the bus person to let the waiter know we wanted a 2nd bottle of wine. It was another 10 minutes before he arrived with it. The food was good, but not outstanding. I realise food prices have increased, labor costs have increased, everything has increased. But it looks like in order to keep costs in line the quantity of food has been reduced, and staffing has been reduced. We've eaten at Le Rendezvous several times in the past and have been very pleased. This time was just 'meh'.
