Good food at a good price

It is a nice clean restaurant. The view from the tables of Rainy Lake provides a nice eating atmosphere. The food was very good and the prices were reasonable. The serving woman was very friendly and helpful.

The restaurant is my favourite restaurant in the 'hood. The staff are always welcoming and food is fresh and excellent. I gone there to watch the World Cup, and despite the crowd, a chair is found for me amongst the full house. I have celebrated a birthday with 100 people in attendance with food catered by Rendez Vous. I have... More

Over a two and a half day weekend stay, having breakfasts, lunches and dinners there, for the most part the food was excellent. I was accommodated with gluten free choices. My husband's first dinner was spoiled with his filet mignon grossly overcooked and had to wait for a replacement steak, while I ate my dinner alone. My walleye was to... More

Had gone for a meal with my wife who ordered the walleye and I luckily ordered the ribs. My ribs were okay, but her walleye was rubbery. Where in land of so many lakes do restaurants get frozen fish? Just hook up with a supplier or assign someone to go fish straight off the lakes.

The setting was perfect to sit among friends & family, eat chicken wings several different ways ( loved the Thai sauce ) We sat inside as it was on the cool side but there is a patio where you can dine as well. Staff is very friendly & efficient. Hope you will enjoy as much as we did.

Had the pleasure of having lunch at the 'Vous and was extremely pleased with all aspects. Our food was tasty, plentiful and served promptly and by a very attentive, pleasant server. The restaurant itself, has always been a wonderful place to sit, relax and dine....very clean and bright. An all-around great experience! Definitely, will go again!

Ordered the new Rib-Eye steak salad. What a disappointment. The salad was soggy and drenched in typically thousand island type dressing. The ribeye was fatty and lots of grizzle. Wow, this could have been so much better with a little attention to detail. Service was average.

On a recent business trip though the NorthWest I had dinner here. The meal itself was really only average. There was a fair bit of salt used in my selection (a chicken with noodle dish) that actually made it impossible to finish the meal. On the upside I was able to get a bottle of good wine for our table... More

Great service, great view and my steak hit the spot! Just a very good spot to sit on the waters edge with a great view of Rainy Lake while enjoying food, cocktails and friends.

The restaurant and its lake view cannot be beat. Outside seating on the patio is wonderful. Food is usually good but occasionally it is lacking.
