We have dined at Rendez-Vous for several years and have enjoyed many dinners as a couple and with our adult children. This time we arrived early for a 6:30 reservation and were seated immediately. The onion soup and salad were excellent. The Daube with mashed potatoes was really savory, and good and hearty. The steak frites was great as always. The soup was so good she had it for desert! We shall return,

we come here often, with our 9 and 10yo, food is always good, service is friendly and prompt. Excellent French food - the owner is French - not too fancy, but always delicious, and reasonably priced.

Live music was an unexpected plus on a weeknight, although some might feel like it oveshadowed conversation noise level. All plates were cleaned. If you are near Solano Avenue and enjoy French bistro classics, this is a good option at fair prices.

I ALWAYS enjoy Rendez Vous. It is truly a neighborhood gem. The food is delicious, the waitresses are great. The location is right next to the Albany Twin theater, so it's very convenient to eat there before or after the movie, but allow enough time because it does get busy! Food is French style, and there isn't another restaurant like it in the area. So friendly and reasonable. Great breakfast, lunch and dinner selections, with daily specials.

This is a great place to go prior to or after a movie at the Albany theater. The food is good, the salad was great and the wine fabulous. The waitstaff are friendly and give you the attention you need without hovering. I will keep coming back.

I called ahead when we realized we would be early for lunch, and there was no problem. When we arrived our table was marked reserved. I had the grilled chicken sandwich with fries and my partner had the blintzes with strawberries. Both plates were very good, and we shared. The service was good and the atmosphere fairly quiet with lots of people enjoying Sunday lunch and one family birthday party. We have been there before and will likely go again.

We have been very happy, satisfied patrons on Rendezvous Vous Cafe for nearly two decades. A wonderful neighborhood place with terrific food, reasonable prices and a warm, attentive staff. Love it!

As the first time we ate here, everything was absolutely delicious! The portion sizes are quite generous. Tomorrow's lunch will be a bit of quiche, some salad, and risotto. I sent the bit of leftover dessert home with my dinner companion. It was too good to leave behind and I didn't want the calories.

Always love the food here. From soup (French onion) to dessert (creme brulle) this is the best place to get simple, well prepared French food I have found in the East Bay. I eould be remiss not to mention the reasonable price. Vive Rendez vous.

The French onion soup was awesome and the stew was very good although it could’ve used more potatoes:) my husband had a sausage chicken and pork casserole that was very good.
Our friend have the chicken Riesling which looked very tasty which was a huge serving almost enough for two! Service was very good and they had a local Carneros Pinot Noir that I have always liked. Overall very good and I would definitely go back!

Good. French onion soup was a little too salty, but overall good food, attentive but not overbearing service, and nice ambiance. I’ll definitely go back.
