Even though the website only shows their "small plates" this restaurant has a full dinner menu that is magnificent. The location is a little off the beaten path but not hard to find and ample parking in back. There were six of us for dinner...and we were immediately welcomed by the waiter who let us pick where we wanted to be seated. Two of us had the special Pecan Crusted Rack of Lamb . I can without a doubt say that was the best, most tender, most delicious lamb dish I have ever tasted! My husband had Steak au Poivre, cooked to perfection medium rare, and also truly amazing. Other dishes ordered were Duck (excellent), Sea Bass (excellent) and Dover Sole (which even came with the roe sack - sautéed). Each entree came with a special potato dish of thinly sliced potatoes that had been first fried and then baked with butter and breadcrumbs to perfection, and some freshly steamed vegetables. We also shared Mussels, White Bean Soup, Snails and Mushrooms in puff pastry before the main course. All were amazing. When we saw Chocolate Soufflé's on the menu and another dish called Pithiviers (puff pastry with almond paste filling served with vanilla ice cream) we just could not resist ordering two of each to split for dessert. The wine selection was good and reasonable. Last but not least we had the best service imaginable. The fact that this restaurant has been in business for over 40 years and is still in the "family" is in itself a great testimonial. What a great experience!!More

My wife and I have eaten at LR many times over the years since my first review in 1016. It never ceases to please us. Once again, we ate there last night (Nov. 4, 2020) and we had the pear salad and escargot pre dinner--they...were excellent. My wife had the scallop dish and I had the duck with bing cherries and kirsch sauce--both absolutely delicious!. Service was prompt, courteous and efficient. I had a glass of the Cote du Rhone blend, which was OK--probably wouldn't order it again. But all in all, the dinner was wonderful; LR is a solid 4+ restaurant! We highly recommend it and we will continue to return.More

Great restaurant which has been a staple for my wife and I these past 20 years. Excellent staff-well versed on the menu and wine list. Prices in check with what one might find elsewhere, but the food, is exceptional.

Lovely atmosphere. Elegant but not stuffy. Service was great and attentive. The best part was the food.....fabulous ! Sea bass was so fresh and delicious. Wine by the glass is reasonably priced and offers a good selection. Didn’t have dessert but next time it will...be a must based on the choices and view of dessert tray. After driving by this restaurant for over 20 plus years this was my first visit but not my last. A new favorite restaurant in Tucson. A beautiful place for a special occasion. Loved it so much❤️More

We were greeted by Kelly, the charming hostess and wife of the Chef. Seated immediately in a corner table. Jared, our waiter, carefully made great recommendations and service was superb. The food? Spectacular-here are the details. My wife thought their lemon drop martini was the...best she ever had, I enjoyed and excellent Bordeaux from WA-$10 glass. Excellent blue point oysters $15 for 1/2 dozen. The small plate brie tucked into fresh pastry ($6) and the mushroom, brie pastry were both excellent. She had the filet mignon-excellent, thick and not the usual round piece. The sea bass was perfectly prepared. All hard to believe in the middle of the desert. One of the best French Restaurants we have ever enjoyed and Yes we have been to France many times and go to New Orleans many times a year.More

Broad menu - excellent service. Tip: 3-4 small plates offer an excellent way to sample the menu at a good price. Tips: 1. The small plate scollop with beans was outstanding. 2. The mussels were very good and the sauce was out of this world....3. Extra bread to enjoy the sauce.More

Our group of eight were staying at the Arizona Inn and a vote was taken to determine where our Saturday night dining venue would be. Le Rendez-Vous came out on top, so the reservation had been made. Now, having experienced the restaurant, we were pleased...that we did. It is an attractive restaurant, with convenient parking. We were quickly seated and our server was quickly there to welcome us. Drinks were ordered and they soon arrived. It was time to get serious about food. Three had Cabrilla Greoblois (egg-battered seabass), one had Saumon Le Rendez-Vous (pan seared Atlantic salmon), two had Saint-Jacques (scallops resting on a roasted garlic aioli), and one had Beef Wellington following an appetizer of Escargots Au Chablis. I had the Le Poisson Du Jour, which on this Saturday night was a wonderful Branzino, resting on garlic mashed potatoes and blistered asparagus. The group concurred that the entrees were incredible. I also had their Mixed Salad which I enjoyed. The only negative comment made was the taste of the French Onion soup, which those that ordered it said that it had a strange sweet taste, that they have not experienced before. The only negative for me was that they ran out of Jack Daniels, so only one well-mixed Manhattan was enjoyed. The service was incredible. The lady who was our lead server was wonderful and assisted by a gentleman made it an enjoyable night. We will certainly be back, as it is a short drive from Ahwatukee and a good excuse to go to Tucson for the night. Wonderful dining experience!More

This was a first visit and will definitely go back. French style cooking and Very good food. The restaurant is on the smaller size but quaint. Good service, friendly staff and a well diverse choice of cocktails.

We had a perfect evening at Le Rendevous. We liked our table in the corner of the bistro, our favorite. We chose the prix fixe with mussels w herbs and wine, salmon, creme brûlée w a half bottle of wine. They were out of the...included wine so gave us a whole bottle of a white French wine off the wine list. Our waiters were pleasant and attentive. We generally come here for special occasions and this was celebrating end of summer!More

Had a nice dinner here last night. We shared a bottle of white Chateauneuf du Pape which was really excellent. I had escargot followed by the sea bass. I thought the escargot was really good but was a bit disappointed in the sea bass. My...wife had the duck pate and the sea scallops. Both of her dishes were quite good. We ended the meal sharing a Grand Marnier souffle. It was tasty but need more Grand Marnier and was not quite done. Overall it was nice but still a bit lacking to be called excellent.More

It is on the same level as the parking lot. So, I would assume it is wheel chair accessible but I don't know for sure. I would say that the menu is not one that kids would like unless they like fine food and are well... More
