    What a treat! From the service provided by Diego and the others to the fresh and delicious dinner, my husband and I were delighted and will be return customers. Everything we ate was delicious. But the crown jewel was the Grand Mariner soufflé. You must finish your meal with a soufflé!

    This was a birthday celebration. The food ordered was delicious. The poached pear salad was so refreshing. The coqui lies saint Jacques were also tasty but rich. Escargots were wonderful. The cabrilla was exceptional. Cooked perfectly with the potatoes. Totally yummy. The wine list is very limited. I wish that there were a wider selection. This was a memorable meal at one of the best restaurants in Tucson.

    Nice ambience, pleasant service, but not very good food. I had mussels followed by a steak frite. The mussels were tasty, although they could have been fresher. The steak, on the other hand, was singed and bitter as well as overcooked (ordered medium rare) and slathered with a gelatinous and unneeded sauce of some sort.

    `Love the classic French food here! All of us really enjoyed our choices...the cabrilla, steak frites, the veal entree, as well as the scallops, house pate, and brie appetizers! We shared the delectable crepes suzette for desert. Nice wine selection, and full bar....and friendly capable service! This is one of the very best places to dine in Tucson!

    The cuisine was not up to the standards we expected compared to our first visit. The fr. Onion soup had no broth. Too much bread and cheese. The pepper steak had too much pepper corns, hardly any gravy. The desserts were lacking. The wine was good.

    Their “most popular” roasted duck was dry, tough and flavorless. The beets on their salad were out of a can. We had high hopes, but unless we hear that the food has improved, w won’t be back.

    Our server, Diego, was very knowledgeable about our ordered French wine. All aspects of service were excellent. My husband loved his salmon entree. The Cabrillo was too heavily drenched in butter, which overran the vegetables. Neither of us thought potatoes Ana was an appropriate accompaniment. The rum cake didn't taste much like rum, but the raspberry sauce was very flavorful.

    We came for our 14th anniversary, having been here 12-13 years ago for the same occasion. Our memories were better than current reality. My wife was served a Filet au Poivre Vert which was very roast beef like, not at all like a tenderloin, though it tasted good, I had the Beef Wellington and my tenderloin was as expected and tasted very good. The menu prices need to be updated on OpenTable, each dish was $2-7 more. We had the Trio de Champignons appetizer. It was very good, though for me the cheese had a hint of musty to it. I wouldn't order it again but it was my wife's favorite of the night however she was comparing to her dismal Filet. The atmosphere was delightful, the little room with white table clothes was very nice, the other room was bar like. The person who sat us, was so accommodating, we were seated in the bar like room but I had remembered we had been in the white table cloth room, even though busy, she was kind and was able to work out a move for us. The overall service was very good, very attentive but not burdensome. If the Filet had been more Filet like, the value would have been spot on, with a glass of wine it was under $150 for two of us.

    This is our favorite Tucson restaurant. We have never eaten a meal here that was worthy of less than five stars. The ambiance is lovely, the servers are friendly, genuinely helpful and attentive without "hovering"; the pacing is perfect -- we always tell them that we like to take our time and not rush course after course; the wine list offers very reasonable prices for generous by-the-glass purchases and a fine variety of bottles. If you like French food, and a relaxed-to-romantic atmosphere, you can't do better than Le Rendezvous.

    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.
