Raw Bar

Raw Bar

An expansive raw bar is one of the cornerstones of Rendezvous Bistro. Serving oysters on the half shell, tuna tartare and oyster shooters, each dish is carefully prepared using only premium seafood.

Sit back as expert shuckers open a variety of the day’s featured oysters, flown in throughout the week to offer an ever-changing variety rivaling any seaside destination in freshness and quality. Plump and meaty or small and delicate – the choice is yours. Dress them up to your liking (or perhaps not at all) and enjoy, taking your time to savor the taste profiles of brine, butter, and sweet.

The raw bar experience is enhanced in true Bistro fashion with Oyster Happy Hour. Enjoy $2 oysters at the inside bar nightly from 5:30-6:30pm.
