This is a longstanding restaurant that is one of the few truly french restaurants in Tucson.

This visit was for entertaining an out of town guest.

While it was good, and the service was very attentive, the food seemed to be less exceptional than in the past.

There were three different dishes ordered: scallops, crab stuffed shrimp and filet. All had very good sauces and great vegetables. However, the main courses were unexceptional. The filet was ordered medium and came medium well and not very warm.

While this has been a "go to" place in the past, we might not be in such a hurry to go back, and might try the other french restaurants first.

We had an excellent meal and the service was top notch even though the restaurant was packed for Valentines Day. This was our first visit but we will be back.

We moved to Tucson from the Washington DC area where there are many world class French restaurants. Le Rendez-vous Bistro & Restaurant Francais compares very favorably with many of these restaurants. I would definitely recommend for anyone looking for French food in Tucson.

The Grand Marnier Soufflé was delicious as were the mussels and service. The cabrilla was swimming in way too much butter. If I go back, I will specify to omit or go light on the butter.

We went for a birthday celebration. Food was OUTSTANDING; we all cleaned our plates after sharing the house salad which was simple, fresh and tasty. Then we split dessert. Amazing wine list, we had a chenin blanc which went perfectly with the salmon. Jared, our server, was impeccable, knowledgeable, pleasant and professional. This was our first visit here, we will definitely put it on our favorites list!

As always, delicious. Gordon certainly inherited his father's touch with French cooking ... and has added to it! Delicious and beautiful presentations. This remains our go-to restaurant for family special occasions ... and just for a wonderful night out.

Four of us enjoyed a lovely meal at this restaurant. My husband and his sister both had the duck, which they said was among the best they'd ever had. Our brother-in-law scraped his salmon dish down to the bare china, and our salads were yummy. Fantastic, warm and crusty french bread, too. My dish was the weakest -- a coq au vin but with white wine -- but mostly because it had a stronger bacon flavor than I typically like. It was otherwise well-prepared and the accompaniments were great. The restaurant has two rooms -- one slightly more formal and the other (our choice) a more funky bistro environment under a red circus-style tent roof with pleasant, dimmer lighting. A very good choice for a celebration dinner, too, with several parties celebrating birthdays or other events.

Excellent service. Quality of food did not meet expectation set by prices. Great wine list; mostly French with some nice international selections.

We've celebrated special occasions at this restaurants quite a few times and are usually very satisfied. This time, on our anniversary, was a bit disappointing. We waited much longer than usual for our food. My husband liked his steak au poivre but the canard Montmorency I ordered was not so good. It was rather too salty. I much prefer canard a l'orange. I love the potatoes but this time the portion was so small it almost was hidden under other food. The service was cordial but not as good as at other times. We'll return and hope for faster service and better food next time. I wish there would be some pork entrees.

Fabulous, as usual. It was disappointing that there was no lobster left at 6:45.

The Best French-Style Restaurant in Tucson. We've eaten here many times and it is our favorite restaurant for a "special" meal. Never disappointed!

I parked my car right next to the restaurant, probably the closest place to the entrance. Since it was a fairly nice night weather -wise, I left the top down on my convertible. When my perty left the restaurant, we found that my car had been ransacked with numerous items stolen. Even worse, whhile trashing my car, the thieves did serious damage to one of my seats, damage that I'm afraid will cost some serious money. I would suggest putting up a sign that thieves are in the area, adding further lighting to the parking lot, and putting up surveillance cameras with a sign to that effect.
