Very nice restaurant with quiet and enjoyable environment. The dishes are nicely made and very tasty! The dishes are on the costly side due to its location.

We were in the San Diego area again this year and went back to del Mar Rendezvous. It didn't disappoint. This was probably the best Chinese food we have ever had (outside of China). We took another couple with us and they were delighted as well. This restaurant is definitely on our permanent list of restaurants to visit whenever we... More

It's just ok... $3 for wonton chips and sauce, which look like they came out of a bag. I really didn't see anything spectacular, what is the "new take" on Chinese food? I will say that the food was good, not great. I would however, go back and give it another try.

I often recommend Del Mar Rendezvous to my hotel guests who come back thanking me sincerely. I want to thank you for the divine dining experience! My friend appreciated the gluten-free menu which was so delicious!! I will continue to recommend you to anyone visiting us at the Clarion Del Mar Inn.

We've eaten here a number of times for lunch and dinner, and they are consistently excellent in both service and food. A good sign of how much you like a place is when you also bring friends and business colleagues to dine there - something we've done a number of times as well. I really like the soups, and the...

Enjoyed a great lunch here on Halloween. Is it the "best Chinese in San Diego"? Maybe...it's definitely in the running. We started with crispy vegetable spring rolls, which were, as advertised--crispy--and filled with a yummy mixture of vegetables. I took a chance and ordered one my favorites, Walnut Shrimp, which is either done well or falls short in so many... More

I have lived in San Diego for over 25 years and just found this "gem" in the heart of Del Mar. Dining with good friends every couple of weeks we decided to take a trip to the beach for dinner, and we were all craving Chinese. The food was REALLY good and the atmosphere was just perfect. The selection of... More

This is a great restaurant in the heart of Del Mar. We did not pay a corkage fee when we brought our own wine. We ordered a wide variety of food for a table of 8 to share and everyone of us thought our dish was excellent. At the end of the evening, the bill did not shock us! It... More
