The truly French menu is executed to perfection. Service is professional, ambiance pleasant, although if many tables are full it can be a bit noisy.

We have attend Le Rendez-vous 5 or 6 times over the past 10 years or so, usually for special occasions. We have always looked forward to attending since our pervious experiences were always very good. This visit was a disappointment. We both had Beef Wellington, one of our favorites and usually very good. This time while the meat was tender, it did not have much favor and was over cooked. Our favorite dessert, the soufflé, was also rather bland. The service was lackluster and not what you would expect for the expense of the place. Finally, although I had indicated this was our anniversary when I made the reservation, no one at the restaurant made any acknowledgement of the fact. We always have had high expectations for Le Rendez-vous in the past and they have usually been met. This time however, we very pretty disappointed. I hope this was just an off night, although it will probably be a while before we return to see if it was.

Our third time at LeRendez-vous in the past two months. We have obviously enjoyed each time. We were in Bistro first and the last two times were in dining area. For a full meal we enjoyed dining room but are looking forward to going back with friends for drinks and small plates in Bistro. Great food, great service!

Our wait staff was so attentive and just generally excellent. Think the waiter was Jerard and sorry but cannot remember the waitress' name... but she was terrific, caring and made sure everything was good, as did Jerard. (Hope I spelled his name correctly.)

Our evening was a success! With so many delectable items to choose from it had us guessing. I ordered the crab and vegetable stuffed shrimp. The crab taste was fresh and wonderful. My date ordered the grilled scallops. He said they were good. We then split the chocolate/cherry cake. Glad we split it because it was rich and delicious. We'll definitely go there again...and not wait for a special occasion!

We recently had a lovely evening at Le Rendez-vous, with perfectly prepared Chateaubriand and of course a wonderful Gran Marnier souffle! We enjoy going to the restaurant on a weeknight as it is usually not as busy, which means a quieter environment and excellent service.

This was a delightful experience - a small intimate restaurant, on the edge of town, serving very high quality French dishes (and on Valentine's Day too! ). One of the great innovations, especially for those of us whose primary culinary interest is taste above quantity, was the series of "small plates" enabling a multitude of "tastings" without volume. We peppered our table with a whole variety and had a virtual "tapas" meal French style. The number and variety was excellent. Thus we ranged through Oysters on the half shell to mussels in white wine and cream, roasted beets au chevre, mini-wellington with truffle demi and duck confit dijonaise. Back this up with wonderful wines (Loire Valley sauvignon blanc and a rich Bordeau) followed by espresso and Cointreau, a charming server, along with the one you love and you have the perfect dining evening.

Too small and few Scallops for the price. The wrong meal first showed up and so, my husband and I couldn’t eat at the same time.

Food was excellent. Fish done just right, vegetables al dente. If I could have changed anything, would have had them bring everything a bit slower so I could have savoured each bite a bit more but these days most restaurants are on the "hurry up" side. We didn't feel rushed, though. They were all very friendly and attentive, however and we had a lovely time.

The halibut special was over cooked and half of the potatoes served with the halibut were kind of raw. Not typical for this restaurant

As always, a lovely experience celebrating a belated Valentine’s Day with good friends. Excellent service, beautiful setting and most of our guests truly loved their authentically prepared French food. I was slightly disappointed in my duck entree—a bit overcooked and difficult to eat, but the lovely cherry sauce was delicious.

This was our second time there and everything was outstanding! Our server Simone was the same and she was wonderful - super friendly and very accommodating as were all the staff we interacted with. The food was amazing, I had the salmon with orange basil cream sauce a Cajun shrimp app and the most sinful chocolate cake that was a rich chocolate but was so light at the same time!
Will continue to go back as we are totally and completely hooked on this gem tucked away.
Thank you for a memorable charming dining experience.

My husband and I had fish, sea bass and salmon, our friends had duck and fish. All the entrees were prepared very well and delicious. We all had salads, my beet salad was excellent. The wine list was good and the service was the best! Lovely evening for a special occasion, my birthday. We will definitely go back in a few weeks for a casual dinner.

Sat 10 minutes without a menu.
Champagne was brought out without a bucket.
Once a bucket was brought out, bus person spilled our champagne placing the bottle into the bucket.
Had to ask waiter to refill our glasses, twice (we could not reach the bucket).
Souffle had fallen when severed.
Food was good, but not excellent.
Ambiance was good.
Parking was good.
Martini was so-so.
The shuffle was taken off the bill, and the champagne was discounted 35%.

We were very excited to try Le Rendez-vous Bistro - however, I would say our meal was just so so. The service was good, however the food was pretty basic and not prepared that great. We had a group of 5 people and the overall rating given was a C+.

Excellent choices on menu with very good food. Good selection of French wines.
Only issue for this high end restaurant is unsophisticated service. High quality red
wine kept in refrigerator and served ice cold. Service staff seemed confused as to
correct flatware appropriate for various dishes.
