Served with your choice of steamed white or brown rice
All of the chickens and ducks we use are free-range and cage-free. We purchase them from mary’s farm in the san joaquin valley, a third-generation, family-owned and operated farm. The birds are fed a vegetarian diet and raised and processed naturally - no antibiotics, additives, hormones, or preservatives. All of the chicken dishes below are made with white meat chicken.

Very tasty upscale modern Chinese fair in a great location across from Auberge. Basically everything on the menu is terrific, but it is not cheap.

I had the crispy duck wraps as appetizers and fish as entree. The crispy duck wraps could have been better. The fish was good. I also liked the Gewurztraminer.

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.

Went out with girlfriends for dinner. Good options on the menu Entrees were definitely more 'americanised' Chinese rather than authentic, were quite tasty but may have involved more deep-frying than stir frying A nice night out, and would be happy to head there again
