I've been here 4 or 5 times with my aunt. We both love it. It looks weird from the outside, but inside it is a cute, small restaurant with enough clutter to be interesting.
Food - I gave it 5 stars each time we went there. So did my aunt.

This restaurant seems to have been rated highly in local newspapers and magazines, but I'm not sure why. The food was just OK. My chicken was overcooked, but the sauce had a good flavor. The prices seemed high for the quality of food you get. The quirky location and atmosphere might be enough for me to give it one more try.

Au Rendez-vous is much more reminiscent of a hole-in-the wall Buford Highway Asian restaurant than any French Bistro I can imagine. The interior is classic clutter, with used sour cream tubs and used beer and wine bottles apparently serving as storage containers. Unfortunately, the garage sale motif extends to the food. French food is classically all about technique and ingredients. The food here does show some cooking expertise, but also has many shortcuts and shortcomings. The salad seems to be store bought mixed greens with a single slice of Roma tomato and an above average very balsamic vinaigrette. An expertly sauteed Sole is added to the top for one of the appetizers. The pea soup tasted like canned English peas that had been pureed (not strained) and mixed with spices and cream. While the flavor was good, it was terribly reminiscent of my mom's heated canned peas from my childhood. The lamb stew had a strong taste of the classic Asian five spice, served with a dollop of chilli garlic (Rooster) sauce and couscous from a rice cooker on the counter. Lamb and white beans was a few pieces of slightly gamy lamb served in what tasted like canned pork and beans; again a flashback to the canned bean days of my childhood. Bread and butter cost an additional $1.20 and was four smallish slices of slightly stale and reheated store bought French bread served with a generous chunk of excellent European style butter. While elements of the meal showed promise, other shortcomings overshadowed them. I'm a big fan of mom and pop places where it's all about the food, but for the money cannot recommend Au Rendez-vous.

Pros: Mom and pop hole in-the-wall

Cons: Too many shortcuts; certainly not classic French.

Great little find on Windsor Parkway. Our food was delicious. The service can be a little slow but we weren't in a hurry so it was nice... Great prices

Pros: Great Food / Prices

Cons: Service

This restaurant could certainly use some customer service training in basic manners. The food is mediocre at best and beware you may be accosted in the parking lot by someone begging for money like we were.

hey need customers to Having been in the wine business for many decades I was delighted to find this little French restaurant near Oglethorpe University. Run by Vietnamese , a chef trained in Paris it provides French food at an inexpensive price worth twice as much . Set in a former Afro-American grocery the service is excellent with twenty or so tables and cute little girls (4 or 5 yrs old ) being part of the family service. The wine list is its' achilles heel with only one French wine(cotes du Rhone) and out of inventory stock on the rest . They need customers to put in a better cellar.

In 2002, Jean-Claude Changivy opened this charming and very inexpensive French bistro with his family. He gained a following for the friendly service, smiling greetings from himself, his wife and daughter, and good dining values. Although…
