The dim sum at Rendezvous are very, very good. I decided to make my meal from the dim sum menu while my wife and our friends ordered some large plates to share. We started with 3 dim sum choices - Pot Stickers, Crispy Duck Wraps and Shrimp & Chive Dumplings. They were all excellent with the Shrimp and Chive Dumplings being the tastiest from my point of view. I then had a Peppery Fried Calamari all to myself - it's also on the dim sum menu but nobody else likes calamari so I enjoyed eating it all - it's quite a large dish too for a dim sum menu item. It was very tasty. The large plates we ordered were Honey Walnut Shrimp which was enjoyed by my companions (a little on the sweet side for me) and Black Pepper Filet Mignon - also enjoyed very much. I tasted a little too and thought it was excellent.
The restaurant is very nicely furnished, there is a full bar and the wait staff were very pleasant, helpful and efficient. What's not to like?

We were visiting Del Mar for the day and just happened upon the Rendezvous. What a splendid lunch we had. Absolutely delicious. The Kung Pao Chicken was the best I've ever had. We also shared the crispy duck rolls for an appetiser and they were fantastic. The room was very cozy and although there were lots of other diners, you weren't aware of them. Our server Katie was friendly and helpful in a very natural way, extremely personable. Katie was very knowledgeable about the beer menu. The wine list looked great too, that alone looked worth going back for.

The food is just delicious. Choices are infinite from small dishes on up. Del Mar Rendezvous is a "cozy" restaurant, small, not really noisy, attractive and seating is comfortable. The Staff is very pleasant.

If you do not have a car You can order from Uber Eats or from Door Dash. The signature dishes were not very good but the traditional dishes like chow mein were OK and less expensive.
