Del Mar Rendezvous
Dinner: Monday - Saturday: 4:30 -9:00pm, Sunday: 4:30-8:30pm
The food is mediocre at best. Good selection for vegetarian but when you charge 3 dollars extra for tofu it's really nickle and diming.
Favorite Chinese Restaurant!
Great food & service!
As usual the food was really good. We really like that they have a mixed Asian cuisine. The strive was lacking after we got our food. It seems like they were under staffed. We want to Rendezvous to survive in what seems to be a tough restaurnant market right right now. If your cutting labor to survive its a losing proposition because the food and ambiance can't make up for bad service and we won't come back.
Food was good - but took almost an hour to get our food.
Outstanding fresh vegetables and seafood. Service is personable and accommodating.
Our waiter was very friendly and helpful as we had one vegan eater with us. And another in our party is gluten free, dairy free. Everyone was advised well and the food was delicious, as always!
A Del Mar tradition has seen a decline in recent years. The food and the presentation are no longer notable. The servers were pleasant, but not sufficiently so to offset indifferent preparation. We won’t be back for some time if ever.
Still our favorite. Love the staff and the food is amazing
We hadn’t been here for awhile and it was just as wonderful as I remembered. The Honey Glazed Spareribs are delicious and I highly recommend the Five Spice Braised Beef. I’m so glad I chose Del Mar Rendezvous for my birthday dinner!
We travel to this area average of once or twice a month. Tried local recommendations and finally found this restaurant we would definitely repeat visit to this restaurant. Foods were great and we loved all we ordered. Thank you! for Open Table’s recommendation. We found our favorite Chinese restaurant in our second home.
The Honey Walnut Shrimp lived up to the hype. The best my wife and I have ever had! The Tangerine Chicken, our daughter's choice, was tasty, but we would've preferred slightly larger chunks of chicken versus the longer, thinner pieces used in this dish. The teriyaki steak was prepared perfectly, delicious, but not as special as the shrimp. Desserts were wonderful, especially the mango sorbet, which I had; my wife and daughter shared a slice of the mud pie and enjoyed it. The service was great, but be aware that the interior is small and a tad tight to move around.
Great experience as always. They let me have my dog on the patio and were so kind about it. Food is amazing, as usual. Miss the sweeter dipping sauce that comes w dumplings. Everything else was incredible. Service was perfect! Definitely one of our favorite “go to” places.
Perhaps because it was a holiday weekend, the service was slow -- I had not experienced it like that at any of the many times I was there in the past. Won't keep me from coming back! Food was great!
Been there many times with great experience but this trip was not—-cold soup, colder food, and poor service.
The food was pretty good. We had the pot stickers, which were alright. The sweet and sour pork was very good and the rice was really well cooked. The beef and broccoli was fine, but not worth it. Overall we enjoyed the food.
The host was snobby when we first arrived. He asked us what our weekend plans were and turned up his nose when we replied. His only comment was “interesting...” The menu is huge and very confusing. There are so many items that there is a legend for all the symbols. None of the indicated symbols seemed to be correct, though. We asked how long the pot stickers would take as they were indicated to need “extra time”, but they we’re ready in minutes. There is also a lot of “can/can’t” instructions on the menu for customers. It was not inviting.
The highlight of our evening was when the two other hostesses (3 hosts?) spend 10+ minutes rearranging tables and chairs next to us in a very small space. It was so distracting we couldn’t even talk. They ended up building a table for 5 where all the people looked straight out into the street. They giggled when they sat the group and the waiter giggled again when he came to take their order. I wouldn’t say this is a professional establishment.
The best Kung Pao Beef I have ever had. Top quality meat. Flavorful, spicy sauce. YUMMY! Friendly, fast service. A definite go-to place for any occasion.
Superb, high quality Chinese food with excellent service and a good wine list.
Great customer service (unparalleled) and wonderful food, especially for those looking for GF, vegetarian, and vegan options. This has been an all time favorite for years, and I'm sure it will remain at the top of my list for some time.
Good food. Good service. Fair prices.
The staff is always friendly and accommodating for our dining needs! The food is excellent and waiting time to be served hot, fresh food is a minimum! Our Fav resturant in Del Mar!
fantastic chinese healthy cuisine!
As always, this place is outstanding and our waitress Katie is great. We wish they were in La Jolla. We'd be there more often.
There are not many restaurants in Southern California that serve high quality Chinese food. I spent many years as a Manhattan resident and had no problem finding the best such food, and my husband and I prepared Chinese food at home for years. We have high standards, therefore, and I'm grateful to have found Rendezvous years ago. I go there every time I am in the San Diego area, and it has always been rewarded. Sunday was no exception!
Loved this place! Amazing service! Such a sweet new find!
As always, good food and great sunset view. Manager is very welcoming.
The food is always delicious and we like the healthy options such as vegan, vegetarian and gluten free items on the menu. Never had a bad entree here! But watch your bill as we were charged for an entree we didn't order nor receive. Almost missed it, in fact, had already paid the bill when we discovered it. One must always be vigilant.
I have been here several times in the last few years. The food is constantly good and the service is friendly and always good
Overall experience was great.. must visit place 👍🏼
Great as usual. Very friendly and efficient wait staff!
Nothing happened. Twins bday wasn’t acknowledged. A bit bummed
Nice variety of food options.
Birthday celebration was excellent. Service and food were great. Always a good meal, attentive staff.
we have dined here many times over the years and each time say why don't we come here more often? We will be back again soon. Great vegan menu in addition to the rest of the menu.
The food, the service and ambiance all superb ! There are endless vegan and gluten free dishes on the menu wow we loved it !The manager is a 5 Star leader! Delightful place we will be back for sure!
This was a great value. Food was made from fresh ingredients and was reasonably priced. Portions are large and dining family style was a good option. For us, a typical portion provided a meal at the restaurant and enough left for a meal at home. We thoroughly enjoyed the entire dining experience.
Not blown away by this place. Food was just average, sometimes even bland. Menu items were very over inflated. Staff was friendly and efficient. Would not return.
Pleasant, interesting menu. Almost too many choices
As always Amazing! Service Fantastic and food is creative and wonderful.
Nothing to tell....ordinary food in an ordinary restaurant
This place is always very good. The food is great, they have a good wine list, and the servers are very good.
