This is a little gem that I found in my Chamblee neighborhood. Tucked away in a house across the street from the Chamblee library. You might have to look hard for it because there is no sign on the road- only on the building.
I ordered chicken and coucous. It was seasoned very well and the proportions were just right. A special dessert of chocolate fondant topped it off perfectly.
My bill was under $20. The waitress was very helpful and spoke french perfectly. I later learned that she and husband (chef) lived in Paris for many years.
I hope to go back many times and will tell all my friends about it.

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. There are seasonal variations in the menu. Their Cr?me Br?l?e is absolutely to die for!
Bring cash - credit cards and checks are not accepted!
Pricing is reasonable.

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.

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.
