"Perfect place for that last minute let's-go-out, or before or after a movie at the Albany Twin. Very nice selection of French bistro fare at very fair prices."

"This was my third visit to Rendez Vous within the last month. Each time I visited it with different dinner companions who liked it as much as I did. And each time I tried different classics of French cuisine: coq au vin, steak frites, rack of lamb, and all were very tasty. The wine list is short but well balanced with the served dishes. The ambiance is simple and the owner very attentive."

"Laurent and his team really took care of me and my boyfriend. The food was notably tasty, the house wine delicious and the service was spot on and attentive. There were so many options on the menu to try that we have to come back for another round. This is definitely a neighborhood gem in Albany."

"Randez Vous is one of those places that are increasingly rare at the American dining scene. Authentic French bistro cuisine executed in a simple yet very tasteful way. No gimmicks. I had a rack of lamb which was perfectly cooked and my dining companion chose steak frites - a bistro classic which was prepared equally well. Fries are usually not my preference, but these have been very crisp and light. Short but well represented wine list and nice classic desserts - creme brule was just right. All of that for affordable prices.
I will be back.

"The food is ok, but it's not a place I'd go to for dinner as a destination. They cut some corners on food--like a poor grade of steak that was too gristly and champagne of an inferior quality."

"Wanting to find a restaurant at the last minute - for Christmas Eve - to celebrate an annuversary, we found this little place. It was nearly empty when we walked in and the ambiance wasn't quite what we had in mind. It wan't bad, just a bit plain. We were pleasantly surprised with the service and the food - perfectly cooked salmon and lamb chops. The rice with the salmon was cold, but everything else was perfect. We'll go back as it was also a good value and close to home."

"Excellent food for a reasonable price. We all found the portions generous, the food authentic and the price well worth it. It is not a romantic French restaurant, but if you are foing for the food, you won't be disappointed."

"Nothing special here. Food was OK. Decor is a little goofy, but fun. One irksome thing: had dinner here, then went to the movies next door. Came back after the movie (restaurant 2/3 empty) for tea/coffee and was informed that there's a $5 minimum per person. "Even though I had dinner here earlier and the place is half empty?" Answer: "Yes." Give me a break!"

"Because of several recommendations from other friends, we went here for a celebration dinner with high hopes. Service was a bit slow, but very pleasant servers who were very willing to make substitutions and even kindly put our 1 shared glass of wine into 2 glasses. The food however was hit and miss. The onion soup, which should be a signature dish in a French restaurant, tho it did have the yummy, gooey, cheesy crouton topping, the soup was a flavorless, watery broth and almost no onions in it! Cesar salad was average, dressing really coulld have used some pizzazz from a bit of anchovie. My entree was fantastic - the chicken corden bleu, perfectly cooked and sliced under a flavorfu, cremey mushroom gravy, yumm-m, accompanying mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus good. My partner had the rack of lamb w/ ratatouille. They were nice enough to double up the portion on her ratatouille, instead of mashed potatoes. Again ratatouille should be a French signature dish, this one was way under cooked and an overabundance of too many crisp squashes, a few nicely soft tomatoes, couldn't find the eggplant, and some odd spices. The rack had several adorable ribs, grilled but again quite flavorless, no rich lamb flavor and seemingly no seasoning - pretty to look at, but that's all. Luckily we shared everything, so she got 1/2 of my delicious chicken cordon bleu. Then again, a fantastic creme brulee for dessert, delicious smooth, delicate flavored custard and a perfect, thin, crisp sugar wafer crust. I am curious to try this place again, so many things on the menu sound great, hope it will be more hits than misses next time."
