“Strong menu and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

Excellent service and a menu that makes it hard to choose. I went with the waiter's recommendations and they nailed it.

“Excellent service and food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

This was truly the last supper...of our vacation and in meaning. We had traveled through the Tetons and Yellowstone, had a good meal at the Mural Room at Jackson Lake Lodge, (every other restaurant in Yellowstone was forgettable) but the Rendezvous Bistro was the most memorable restaurant of or 9 day trip. We are a family of 5: 8, 13 and 15 kids, and 2 45 year olds. Excellent service. When we first arrived, we couldn't decide between outside and inside; we ended up outside, and the waiter was nice enough to bring the table paper used for the inside tables for our 8 year old daughter to draw on. He was attentive, friendly, helpful, and overall a great waiter. For the first time in 9 days, we did not have to ask for our glasses to be refilled. The food came quickly and it was excellent They happily allowed my 15 year old and me to split a wonderful ribeye with no charge One child had trout that she loved; one had chicken fingers (surprise) and my husband loved his spicy pork chop. We sat outside and it was delightful. I would definitely go back.

“Underwhelmed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

My husband and I had the misfortune of having our wedding anniversary fall during the busiest Friday night of the summer season. We decided to go out anyway (carpe diem!) and wound up here. I will give them the benefit of the doubt since it WAS packed everywhere in and around town, but we were told the wait would be about 20 minutes and we ended up waiting almost 90 for a table. We didn't leave because we couldn't get in anywhere else (had tried to make reservations prior). The manager was kind and realized they had screwed up the estimate and bought us a drink while we waited.

So we were happy when we finally sat down to eat. The service continued to be reasonable, if somewhat cool. But the food itself was underwhelming. My husband's duck confit was dry and my lamb souvlaki was very heavy on dill. None of it was inedible but in short I felt that I could (and do) prepare something better at home.

When it came time to order dessert, they had run out of about half of the selections. Again, it was so unusually busy that I can't entirely blame them for this, but it was a bit of a disappointment. The pavlova we ended up with was very good although the passion fruit curd was VERY acidic.

This was our first time but given the circumstances we may give it another go during a slower season. Will update if we do.

“Chipotle corn was delicious!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

Located at the Wilson end of Jackson town, behind Albertson's supermarket, this restaurant was recommended to us by our B&B. We enjoyed a wild boar burger each with delicious chipotle corn. Our server suggested swapping this for one portion of fries which was a good choice as the portions were quite large. The quality of the food was very good. We found the menu a little limiting for our taste but there was plenty of choice. The service was good even though they appeared to be quite busy. We would definitely return.

“Good food but expensive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

The service was excellent and the atmosphere was very nice. I found the menu to be limiting as I don't eat pork and many items contained it such as meatloaf.

The menu prices were high. $9 for soup is IMO, expensive. My wife wanted scallops but once again $34 for this item was not worth it.
