First visit to this restaurant and I can see why so many call it a favorite. Ordered two appetizers and two entrees, all of which were perfectly prepared and presented. Portion size was very good as was the service. The manager took the time to stop by the table and ask if we'd like more of any of the dishes... More

We've been eating here regularly since the restaurant opened. We have our "favorites" and they are always good. The Konnyaku Noodles are excellent as are the Eggplant and Tofu in a clay pot and Steak Shangr-ila. We love the 1/2 price wine nights and that you can purchase "wine to go" at half off at any time. Surprisingly good wine... More

This use to one of my favorite restaurants. It use to be that whatever we ordered was great. Portions were never that big but the taste always made up for that. This time the food had gone down hill. Was very disappointed with everything. I will go back again but if disappointed again then I will never go back.

We have had takeout from Rendezvous which was good but not exceptional. However, we decided to dine in for dinner and the takeout does not do it justice. The place is busy, so we made reservations, and it has nice ambience. We sat outside, which was very warm under the many heaters - good for february. The menu was extensive... More

I walked by the Rendezvous during the day, & spoke to the person at the podium who showed me the menu & wine list. He was very friendly & helpful. I ate there a couple of nights later & everything was perfect. My server, Anton, was spot on - did his job very well & with a smile. The food... More

My husband and I are frequent customers at the Rendezvous and we love their food and service. A reservation is highly recommended on weekends and in the summer time, because the venue is rather small and it can get busy. We started going to the Rendezvous since it's opening and while the ownership has changed (and prices are a bit... More

After reading lots of reviews about the Del Mar Rendezvous Chinese restaurant, we decided to sample their food during a North SD outing. The place was very busy (good thing that we made reservations in advance), and we were promptly seated upon arrival. The wait staff was very polite and attentive, and while the service was very good, we found... More

We've eaten Dim Sum around the world with experiences spanning from fabulous to unpalatable. Dim Sum at Del Mar Rendezvous falls near the bottom of this scale with all dishes arriving cold and flavorless directly form the kitchen. Sizes of har gaw and siu mai being the smallest we're ever seen while the prices could be considered reasonable for reasonably... More

Ate here once at the recommendation of a friend. It was late Sunday night and we were late getting there. But, they were nice and the service was great. Food was also very good. There is a parking garage behind and they will validate for up to 2 hours. There is also on street parking for free if you can... More

We were staying nearby at Rancho Valencia and just wanted some good take out for one evening. Del Mar had a great looking menu and so we went ahead with our order. Placing the order was a breeze and finding the restaurant was very simple. All our dishes were cooked perfectly and nothing with messed up. Not being at home... More
