                      This is traditional French cuisine at its best. We have fallen into a rut with our favorite dishes but maybe next time we can be resolute and try something new. If you haven't tried Le Rendezvous yet, the small plates are a good way to sample a variety of their dishes. We are really looking forward to this restaurant being open for lunch again.

                      My first visit with the day being a spouse's birthday. Fantastic service with highly attentive staff. Ordered from the main dining room so the menu and prices reflect that, but for the service, chef choices, and the flavor of the menu-----WELL WORTH THE PRICE. We will be back---noticed the great wine list as well, so a June Anniversary dictates our next special day so guess where.....

                      My snails were delicious as was the French Onion Soup. I ordered the duck in blueberry sauce. The duck was coked properly but the sauce was overpowering. My chocolate soufflé came straight out of the oven and was so extravagant, every bite was savored.

                      As a regular customer at this fine restaurant, always pleased with the excellent service and fine food. On special holidays, they usually serve pre fixe dinners. I would not recommend them for occasions such as Mothers day, etc. If you go, please check with them in advance if you can order off the menu.

                      This is the only authentic French Restaurant in Tucson. The food was very good and well prepared The service was attentive. The only negative was the seating (in the bar versus the main dining room). It was a bit noisy and was not where we expected to be seated with our reservation. The AC was blowing directly on my seat for the first half of the meal, which was uncomfortable.

                      Normally one goes to a place like Le Rendez-vous for a quiet time with a delicious dinner and excellent service. Unfortunately, while we had a delicious dinner and excellent service, there was a noisy party of 8 at a table who apparently had a wonderful time, but at the expense of others in the restaurant--some of whom moved to the "Bistro" section and others left altogether. Given the rather small quarters of the restaurant--it seems to be a restored house--such situations may be unavoidable, but they are regrettable. With apologies to MeatLoaf, 2 out of 3 aint bad, but it's not enough when it comes to the expectations and expenses of a restaurant like Le Rendez-vous.

                      Fabulous reviews made us want to come and sample the cooking ourselves. The food was fabulous tender and extremely tasty whichever dish we ordered The table which he said it didn’t have a tablecloth it was more of a garden variety and very small impossible to accommodate all the dishes even for the two of us We made reservation weeks before and indicated this was a special occasion yet we were not treated as indicated That aside the service was mediocre the food came in rapid succession virtually on top of each other refilled rush through the meal because that’s the adequate spacing was not there

                      Always a favorite. Last time I was there I was disappointed, but decided to try again. Everything was back to normal excellence. Once in a while there is a bad night, chef out, Covid problems....but problem solved, whatever it was. Can't want for my next visit.

                      The restaurant was very crowded and the noise level was very high. Perhaps this was because it was the evening before Easter Sunday or maybe it’s the new normal. Only a return visit will tell.

                      We love this restaurant for their fine food, their excellent service, and small size so that we can hear each other talk. They even let me bring gluten free bread and will warm it for me so that I can enjoy their wonderful sauce on the mussels and scallops.

                      Always a great place for traditional French cooking. We love the beef Wellington, duck and fish. The cocktails are wonderful and don’t forget to get a soufflé for desert. Everyone is so gracious and professional, wonderful place for date, special occasion or just a lovely night out.

                      having been there several times previously, it was a disappointment to encounter repeated examples of poor, uncoordinated service. Perhaps if we had waited for a table in the main dining room, we would have gotten better service. One almost got the sense of being deliberately ignored by staff. The not-so-serviceable wine came out fast enough, but was mostly finished in the half hour before the first hors d'oeuvres were even served. The hors d'oeuvres were a scattershot affair. No argument about the quality, which was excellent, but the last dish came a full seven minutes after the other three. Dinner was well prepared, but painfully slow in arriving. The Grand Marnier Souffle appeared to lack the essential flavor of Grand Marnier.

                      We think of Le Rendes-vous as a place for special occasions like birthdays and wedding anniversaries. We like to have something different each time we go. The service is gracious and the food presentation is wonderful.

                      The food was superb, as were all the servers. Really fun drink options, and the beef tenderloin wrapped in pastry was remarkably tasty! I only wish I could have eaten more - but with great portions we were full after apps and entrees. We can wait to go back!
