Rendezvous is an 85-seat casual / fine dining restaurant that opened in November 2005 in Central Square, Cambridge serving dinner seven nights a week. Our menu, which changes regularly according to seasonal availability of ingredients, is inspired by the flavors of the western Mediterranean: Italy, France, Spain, and North Africa. We have a full liquor license, offer a specialty cocktail list, and our wine list is carefully chosen to compliment the menu.
