As unpretentious as it is consistently excellent, Rendezvous is the place to go for imaginative, tasty local food served in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. The longevity of the kitchen, bar, and wait staff is testimony to owner/chef Steve Johnson's leadership and generosity of spirit....More

I went to Rendezvous last July with a Cambridge local and it was mighty good. Food was excellent, service as well and the wines were diverse, reasonably priced and very good. Overall an interesting addition to my Boston/Cambridge area restaurant array.

I've been in Boston 9 nights from the UK, and this was the best meal I've had, by some margin. The food was inventive and tasty with "lots going on", and despite being stupidly full I had a delicious dessert too. Will definitely be back...More
