That lamb shank. Wow. In the really really good "wow" way! Two of the four of us had it and I could hardly... read more

The initial draw of this restaurant was the proximity to the Hampton Inn where we were staying. You can walk there which is really nice. But after that, I just was not wowed by it. I definitely would not go there if I was not staying next to it. The venison was tasty but tough. I think there were potatoes... More

I expected this restaurant to be good, from all of the reviews I read myself, but it actually turned out to be great. It far exceeded my expectations. The food was wonderful and the service impeccable. I actually want to visit Jackson Hole more often just to eat here. Thank you!!!

My parents and grandparents live in Jackson so they were the locals and I was the visitor.

I was visiting the area and made reservations for Christmas dinner. The service was spectacular as was my food. I had the salmon and decided to try the chocolate bread pudding for desert as it sounded interesting. Fantastic meal and overall dining experience. I will certainly go back on my next visit to the area.

The Rendezvous Bistro was one of our most nostalgic favorite restaurants in Jackson Hole. We were seated 35 minutes after our reservation time. We were given a calamari appetizer gratis to apologize for the wait.
