When living in nearby Solana Beach, and even now when visiting on business trips, I always try to stop by the Rendezvous for dinner. Located on the sidewalk level of the Del Mar Plaza, This is a great place to sit and enjoy the little town of Del Mar without spending a fortune.

If you enjoy Asian food and some good wine selections, this is a great place to get a sidewalk table and relax.

If you like Asian food, you can't miss at this restaurant.

My family makes sure we stop here every time we vacation in San Diego.

First, the staff is friendly, courteous and professional. They are well versed with the menu and wine list. They go out of their way to meet your needs. The manager is always checking to make sure your meal is going well.

Second, the food is wonderful. The menu has something for everyone, with a large number of appetizers, fowl, meat and seafood dishes. The food is of high quality and well prepared. Portions are good and are served on unique china.

Lastly, the restaurant has a patio that accepts well-behaved dogs. We always travel with our dog and it is a special treat to find an upscale restaurant that wholeheartedly accepts pets. They great wait staff provided water for my Bichon and a friendly attitude towards pets!

When near Del Mar, you have to stop at Rendevous.

We come here fairly regularly. We really like the pepper steak and the Shanghai pan-fried noodles. We usually come here for lunch, as dinner is fairly pricey. But that's Del Mar for you... The quality of the food is very good. They used to have excellent happy hour food specials, but now I think it is much more limited. There is a frequent diner program too, definitely worth it if you think you might come in again.

The five spice braised beef is braised for five hours in a soy marinade,
it's so tender that you need a knife. This along with the Imperial House's
Steak Diane are the best beef entrees in town. The caramelized Imperial
Shrimp and the Cashew Chicken were both very good, however the braised
beef was excellent.

This restaurant delivers very high quality chinese food and is definitely worth a visit.
We were a party of four and chose 3 starters, squid, aubergine (eggplant) and duck wraps, which were, perhaps the highlight notes.
We then selected 3 entrees, chicken, fish in a hot pot and shrimp with rice.
Every dish was individual in taste and there was no "gloopy" sauce in sight!
A memorable meal.
We found the service swift, efficient and helpful.
