We love this place. It is the essence of being on the mountain. The food is always great, the people are friendly, and we always feel welcomed by the owners and staff. The wine list is really great and reasonable. But the best is last, be sure to save room for dessert!

While spending a couple of days in Welches on our first trip to Oregon we decided to eat at Rendezvous Grill. We had read that it was great. Well, my seafood pasta dish was OK, but my husband's steak sandwich was so full of grizzle he couldn't even finish it. We know that sometimes this happens so expected that something would be done about it. So, when the hostess came by to see how our food was and my husband told her about the poor quality of the steak he was trying to eat we just naturally thought she would offer something else or a re-do. That is NOT what happened. She just said "oh" and walked away. At this point I thought she would come back, but that was it. Sooo, I would definitely not recommed the Rendezvous Grill in Welches. The other places we ate during our six days in Oregon were great.

We dine here about once monthly, it's a little treat for us. You'll find a nice, simply, classily appointed restaurant with rich jewel tone colours and intimate seating, a friendly service, and a wonderful menu.

They have a great selection of wines and beer, and a menu that leans towards the european/french tradition with a Northwest twist. The chef tends to favour local ingredients, as well as some unusual, ones. You'll find a choice of items ranging from dungeoness crab cakes (which are delicious) to beef and chicken dishes enhanced with things like hazelnuts, blood oranges, and more. There are always an excellent variety of dishes, from chicken and beef to really fine pasta dishes with light sauces with creative flavours. You'll also find escargot a la bourgogne, and a fondue.

But you cannot dine at this restaurant without having a dessert. The chef is an accomplished pastry chef, and their dessert tray is a thing of evil. Creme brulee with pear brandy, chocolate cakes, tiramisu and a carrot cake to die for; all made fresh on site and absolutely decadent and amazing.

You can also catch their special events; like wine and cheese night, oyster night, and their holiday specials which have a smaller selection menu for three courses for one reasonable price.

Do not expect mediocrity from the kitchen or the staff. For a small town, this is a fantastic restaurant, and a hidden treasure. It's worth every dollar. We're huge fans.
