Dining in downtown Los Angeles involves eating delicious, inventive dishes, in often unique and beautiful venues. Rendezvous Court is no exception, having served as the original lobby of the Biltmore when it opened back in 1923.
Rendezvous Court is adorned with Moorish carved wood ceilings, gold-leaf accents and Italian travertine stone walls. From its rose marble fountain to the enormous bronze Baroque stairwell, you can't help but delight in its elegant two-story lounge. The space has even been featured in film and television, including features such as Daredevil, Beverly Hills Cop, The Nutty Professor, 24 and Heroes.
Traditional afternoon tea is served Wednesday through Sunday from 2:00pm - 5:00pm. Guests can choose from the $35 Victorian Tea, which includes a pot of tea from our selection of finely-blended custom teas, an assortment of elegant tea sandwiches, our freshly baked Pistachio & Currant Scones and a selection of French Macaroons, Caramel Tart & Chocolate Ganache, Madelines and Cream Puffs. For an additional cost, you may indulge by adding a glass of Sherry, house wine or sparkling wine, Mimosa, or a Laurent Perrier split. Tax and gratuity are additional.
