This small, intimate BYO restaurant ought to be on anyone's list If you love, well-prepared, interesting fine French cuisine. There's nothing stuffy about this place. The chef/owner Phillipe is a native of Nice, France who brings the flavors and feel of the French Riveria to this little hamlet in NJ. The food ranges from chicken to fish to cassoulet (seasonal)....

Before reserving our table, my husband asked whether duck would be on the menu, and was assured it would be. When we ordered, we were told that the duck was not available, but they had pheasant for the same price. I ordered that, which turned out to be dry and excessively sweet. That is really saying something, as I like... More

My wife and I had dinner here recently on a Saturday evening.. We thought the food and service were outstanding. Prices were high for this area ($33.00 average entry) but portions were very generous.The less than great part of our dining experience was the atmosphere. Very crowded and very noisy. This restaurant is a smallish storefront with a lot of... More

We hadn't bee to Le Rendez-vous for some time and after our excellent meal last night, we wondered why we'd waited so long. The food is a welcome break/addition to the all-Jersey-Italian, all the time + Asian places around as it offers food from the south of France. (So it is also healthier than the cream and butter cuisine of... More

Good things come in small packages like a French bistro. There were 9 of us and everyone was happy with their dinners.

We have eaten at this delightful small restaurant before but had not been back for over a year (not sure why since we loved it the last time!) A small restaurant (reservations advisable) right on the Boulevard in Kenilworth. You enter seeing and receiving the aromas of herbs, tomatoes, figs and eggplants growing all around you outside. As I said,... More

Charming bistro in an unexpected storefront spot. Food is consistently very good. Well-balanced summer tasting menu is lovely. Not a large menu, and to me, that means everything is fresh and prepared to order--which it is at this bistro. Some may find it a bit pricey, but it's well worth it and it's BYO.

We go every year or so for special occasions and the last time was truly memorable. Shared the snail appetizer, a fish and a lamb dish. Everything was divided up and presented beautifully as a tasting menu. Had the desert trio, tres leches, creme brule and chocolate cake. All were delicious!

We were fortunate to walk in without reservation on a Friday night. Unheard of but it happened. Only 2 other couples were there so it was a private affair. Went straight for the entree because we were famished. The venison and rack of lamb were very tasty. You cannot go wrong with these 2 dishes. The crepe was great to... More

My wife and I had dinner here with another couple. We all agreed the food was wonderfully prepared and the service exceptional.
