Rendezvous Bistro Ratings and Reviews

Rendezvous Bistro is always a hit. Tuna tartar, escargot, fresh oysters on the half shell; this place has items available that others in Jackson don't. Great wine list, excellent service and ambiance fitting of a much bigger city. Of the many restaurants to choose from in Jackson, this one always hits the mark. Definitely worth trying!

Our waitress was absolutely amazing. She was friendly, patient and highly accommodating. The food I would say was mid-level. Pork asado could have been better executed had they removed the fat from the cut. Veal Marsala was tough with an oddly flavored sauce. Trout was delicious. Bread is great and was the peanut satay wraps, although an interpretation of true peanut satay, were good as well.

Checked out reviews on several restaurants in Jackson, Wyoming and selected this one based on the variety of choices on the menu. Frankly, just because we are traveling out west, we do not care to eat "game" and found many restaurants had an over abundance of that western fare.
I had the Veal Marsala - it was tender and delicious. I was not familiar with many of their wines so their bartender came to our table with tastings. The pace of service was perfect. I would highly recommend Rendezvous Bistro.

The best food we had in Jackson Hole without a doubt. Every menu item the 4 of us ordered was excellent. The steak frites highlighted one of the best NY strip cuts I have ever had and was MUCH better (and less expensive) than the one I had at the Snake River Grill. This is an outstanding restaurant with a casual and fun vibe.

The food was good and filling, the waiter quick and attentive. As with most restaurants we've dined at in Jackson Hole, good food, but not great food. Resort town high prices as well, but this is also common in Jackson.

Rendezvous is consistent with excellent food and good service, even when swamped as essentially all restaurants in Jackson are during the summer months. It is a local favorite and as such is pretty busy even during the "shoulder seasons" (late fall, spring) - so a reservation, especially during summer, is a must.

We went for the last night of our honeymoon and it was a perfect choice. We sat outside, had excellent service and delicious food. It is somewhat outside of town which is great because it wasn't overly crowded or noisey. The venison was fantastic and so was the duck confit! We started with the tuna taratre which is a must have!
Disappointed. Went for special occasion ...
Went for special occasion to one of usually favorite restaurants. Obviously busy, and were seated and immediately ask for our dinner order. No inquiry wine, cocktail etc. Requested a cocktail, and then server wanted order again. Selected appetizers first, oysters, and soup for guest. Soup was very good. Oysters were cold and flavor full, but obviously have been shucked earlier in the day.
Entrees: Duck and Jambalaya, Duck was very salty, and guest found Jambalaya flavorful but experienced a MSG like effect after dinner in the middle of the night.
Plates were cleared quickly and dessert offered. Check came with dessert ; Message was clear ; have your dessert and clear the table as there are people waiting. ( our reservation was for 715 )
Felt very rushed, and dinner was not inexpensive. Will pass on future dining here until after the season quiets down.
Noise level of energetic is kind, is was very loud and conversation difficult.

This was my first mediocre experience @ the Bistro, having dined there in the past, as a local Jackson resident.
Reservations were for 7:15, but I arrived early at ~ 7:00 and was told that we'd be able to be seated in the Patio in about 10 minutes.
It was actually more like 1 hour, and with relatively slow service and "normal consumption time", they were breaking down the patio and stacking chair all around us ("BIG event the next day" we were told)... not terribly relaxing as we waited ~ 15 minute for coffee at the meals finish.
Several bussers picked up plates before we were finished, and we had to ask the staff to put the food plate back down so that we could finish.
The fries were room temp at arrival.
The Duck Confit was MUCH too Peppery, as was the Vertical Harvest salad, which was discussed with staff after the meal.
The Barrimundi dish was enjoyable, and spicy, as advertised.
The Indian Vegetable Plate was rated as O.K..
It's possible that we were a bit forgotten out on the patio, as this was the first time that I've dined outside.
Between the food and the service, I would not rush back.
For the Bistro's sake, I hope that this was an unusual occurrence. Chuck

I reserved this restaurant as an out-of-towner, based on OpenTable reviews. I have 4 kids (2 older teenage girls, a 7-year-old boy, and a 4-year-old girl). My children are all well-behaved and have been taught proper restaurant etiquette. We reserved for my son's birthday dinner, as we were in Yellowstone for the week. When we checked in, the host was extremely rude. He tried to "convince" us to dine outside. It was 91 degrees, and I was not interested. He asked another hostess, and they sat and discussed where they could put us since I refused the outside table. The service didn't get better from there. Honestly, I truly believe they just don't want kids at their restaurant. I don't know who marked this as "kid-friendly" but it was anything but. I noticed they kept trying to push the families with kids to the outside tables. The server wasn't any friendlier. Finally, the food was not worth the price. My husband and I have dined at a lot of very upscale restaurants here in Colorado. The prices here weren't bad, but were not worth the food. My teenager had a $13 chicken sandwich with the chicken completely overdone and tough. We paid $8 for some penne pasta and marinara sauce for my littlest one, and it was maybe a notch above Chef Boyardee. The trout was good, with good flavor and presentation, but not worth anywhere near $26 for the portion size and overall experience. It seems like their target customer is a 2nd-home owner in wealthy Jackson, not out-of-towners or families. I was disappointed in the whole experience, and I would not recommend this to anyone nor would I return again.

I have actually never written an evaluation that was negative before. This place was recommended to us by a friend in the wine industry. While we didn't realize initially it was a little outside town, we wanted to give it a try! Positives: we arrived early and our table eagerly awaited us.
Negatives: waitress was literally indifferent to every menu inquiry. If we tell you we have 8 people and ask how many Ahi your appetizer serves...can your response please not be "depends how much you people need to eat!" Please educate your servers in Oysters and the difference of size based on the source...please teach them not to be schooled by their bus boys on wine education. Between the noise of the highway , the lack of Jackson ambience, the truly poor service I hope folks aren't lured by this place. and as for the food-which is why we eat out-the avocado on the ahi seemed previously prepared, and whil theduck confit was incredible, the fish and pasta dishes were a huge disappointment! With all of the dining options in this region, I suggest you go somewhere else!

Our meal was such a disappointment. The trout, which is a regular item on the menu was sold out, and only 3 roast chickens were available. In addition to this, the first bottle of wine we ordered was sold out. We ordered a different bottle of red wine, and it was served warm (not cellar temp but kitchen warm). No one out of the 6 of us liked the wine and left most of it in our glasses. We ordered a different bottle of red and it was the same story.....totally inexcusable to serve red wine like this. The fresh oysters on the shell were mushy, as if water had gotten in them. No one liked their appetizers or entrees. The service was also spotty at best. After years of eating at RB, we will not return.

Rendezvous is by far our favorite restaurant in Jackson, we always take our visitors here and it never disappoints! The Pork Chop and corn salsa is very nice! Ben, the manager is amazing, friendly and the reason that we keep returning!
