We love this Classic French restaurant, now passed to the next generation, offering either classic traditional dining or a more casual bistro experience. Food is excellent, and on this busy Saturday night, the service was too. One of our favorite places to dine in Tucson!

The servise was amazing! However the food was either overseasoned or not seasoned enough. But their crab stuffed shrimp and their desserts are to die for!

Best French cuisine in Tucson, period. We shared the lobster with truffle butter and prime filet, both cooked to perfection and melted in your mouth.

We always enjoy this close to home experience of French cuisine. Only knock is that their desserts aren't especially great, but after brie en crout, escargot, salad, and our entree, who really cares?!

Wonderful French bistro meal. We were there on News Years Eve. Normally a challenging night for restaurants. The menu was fixed price 4 coarse with interesting options for each coarse. Both the meal and service were 5 Star. Highly recommend.

 (Tucson)·Dined on January 1, 2018

Dined here on New Year’s Eve- A ludicrous amount of money for poorly prepared food. If you can’t accommodate a second seating even with reservations then just don’t. Cold food, rehydrated cake, poor poor poor. The staff was over-taxed and burdened with serving a mediocre meal. They ran out of items, offered plate of parsley as a salad, and were generally tone-deaf to families. A terrible experience from a restaurant we have had great experiences from in the past. Terrible note to end the year on. If you’re dumb enough to go in there after reading this and let them perpetrate this fare on you for the proposed exorbitant cost then I say: Enjoy. You deserve to be duped.

The meal was a disaster. I couldn't even describe how funky and bad tasting what they called a
salad was. The prime rib was served correctly to start (medium rare), however it was very cold.
Instead of giving us a new cut they reheated the same prime rib and brought it back and it was now well done and still cold.

I would not go to a restaurant for most of the attributes you list above. This restaurant has a very talented chef, who knows how to cook and present french meals. The restaurant is a place where one can enjoy great food, and quiet good conversation. It's the best place in Tucson for that, and it matches top spots in San Francisco, Boston, and New York.

This was my first time dining at Le Rendez vous and my review is mixed. My escargot arrived boiling and remained that way for a number of minutes. They were very salty and chewy. The dish appeared to be right out of a microwave and that was disheartening. My Beef Wellington
was a sorry sight and while the meat was tender, the sauce reduction was like a thick uninspired brown gravy. There was a very small serving of potato with it accompanied by highly salted broccolini. The wine we ordered was a good Bordeaux (Saint Emilion) and my partner reported enjoying the Duck which came with the same potato and broccolini. We both raved over the desert souffle but I had to remind the waiter to check the notes I had left for a birthday candle and this special desert.
All said I would not recommend this restaurant for a fine French meal although it might suffice for wine and desert. I am always willing to pay for good cuisine. This was uninspired and disappointing.

I was somewhat disappointed in my entrée. I usually get the veal medallions and this time the veal was tough and chewy. My husband's dish, the bell wellington was excellent, as usual. The pace of food was served quicker than usual. Also, for a birthday celebration which was told earlier to the restaurant, there was no indication of any birthday greeting or candle in the soufflé.

This is excellent authentic Classic French food. We are so fortunate to have this restaurant in Tucson. I love their pate, French onion soup and fresh fish entrees. Great meat , duck and veal choices too. There is a full bar as well as lots of excellent wine choices. You can choose the more casual dining room or the more traditional dining room.
Service is friendly and capable and the place is quite comfortable.
This place is a gem!

 (New Orleans)·Dined on November 29, 2017

The food was good but the service was poor. They ignored/forgot my request for a dessert with a candle for the birthday we were celebrating. The wine list is not up to date. The waiter broke the cork while opening the bottle, there were flies buzzing around our table,and while the meet was flambe-d at our table, we had to listen to the lesson to a trainee... At the end of the dinner the waiter was unsure whether they had any Cognac (in a French restaurant!). The food was goos but the restaurant is managed without competence and class.

Classic French--always delicious
Our family have Ben customers of Le Rendezvous decades and watched it continue to flourish as a classic French restaurant even through its changes from father to son and our changes from grandparents to adult grandchildren. Service is lovely. There is a more casual area and a small but dressier dining area that really can make an occasion feel special. Very adult; not for little children.

Horrible. I'v made 3 reservations previously that I canceled a week later, because the timing was not right for me. However, the last reservation, I actually decided to go. Took a $15 Uber & I get there just to be met by a random server outside saying the place is closed.

I HAD A RESERVATION AT 8:45. I GOT THERE AT 8:44. SHE SAID THEY'VE BEEN CLOSED SINCE 7:30!!

She knew that the online system allows you to make reservations till wayyy after the place is closed. She said she saw the reservation & tried calling in advance (LIE #1). All my reservations have been around 9PM. I have never received any means of contact from them. She seemed so unbothered by the fact that this situation was taking place. Almost as if it were the norm.

DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY. STAY HOME OR TRY SOMEWHERE ELSE!
