Ambiance as noise was rated
Ambiance as noise was rated a little lower because we were seated closer to the street; however I look forward to going back. Patio dining is nice surprise on bustling Atlantic ave

We went to get a seat outside so we could watch the Delray Bike Race and were pleasantly surprised by the variety and quality of the food and the attention by the manager.

Great access to Atlantic Avenue
Great access to Atlantic Avenue and the outdoor patio area is a terrific place to relax and enjoy an evening. Inside is somewhat noisier. Warmly greeted and seated right away, the staff is young and energetic. Our server was extremely attentive until it got a bit busy, about 30 minutes in. He forgot some wine, we were served a lovely (albeit small) cheese plate without explanation of the selections presented. When he took our credit cards for payment, he stopped at a large table to take their order beforehand. It took about 20 minutes to finally get our bills. The wine list is interesting and pairs well with the food. The food is very creative and contemporary. I would recommend it for a casual night out.

excellent oudoor ambiance
I wanted to go to Tyrst for a long time because I've read great reviews about their fish tacos and finally I made a reservation and got there early on a Wednesday evening for dinner.I highly recommend the fish tacos for a first timer at this place. I also had the watermelon salad, very refreshing and healthy(spinach, pine nuts). The iceberg salad it's also delicious. For drinks they have a large selection of beers and well made cocktails.Service was great, thank you Matt.I will go back for sure.

Come on in
Friendly and welcoming as can be! Nice looking place with great vibe and good mix of pretty people. Intersting menu not just the usual stuff gotta give credit there. Plenty of fancy beers. Nice outdoor patio but wish there weren't so many smokers out there - I would go more often. Had the Penne with meat sauce which was outstanding and wife had the sausage of the day also great. Tried two other things which we didn't like and they took them back gladly. Will definitely visit again.

Good regular menu with an appetizing list of Daily Specials that offered a bit of everything. Excellent beer and wine list.

I enjoyed the Prior 8 beer. It was a healthy ruby color, had subdued fruity flavors and that zesty taste that accompanies 8% alcohol content. In fact, from the mustard that accompanied the otherwise bland and salt-less pretzel mini-loaf to the house salad and free-range chicken, everything was wonderfully spiced. Having a had a more intimate experience with the burger than the chicken, I'd rate it right up there with the one served at Rocksteady: densely made, laden with flavor and just drippy enough to be noticed, but not annoyingly so.
We split some sort of banana creme tart that was quite light and palette cleansing, and overall, it was a good ending to this tasty meal.

Amazing Food = Amazing Experience
While the ambiance and service are great, its the food that really makes the experience at Tryst. We started with the soup of the day (a proscuitto and corn soup) and the fat & fat appetizer (a portion of pork belly in a delicious asian type sauce and a portion of foie gras with blueberry toast). Both were delicious and I can definitely see why the waiter recommended the fat & fat. For our entress, we had the grouper with a pea and bacon risotto as well as the duck special. Both were cooked perfectly. The grouper was flaky and flavorful while the risotto melted in your mouth. The duck was moist and delicious. Overall, yum yum yum.

First time at a Gastro-pub
Loved it. From the hostess to the bartender to the waiter, all were consistently friendly & always had a smile on their face. Food was great. Meats are organic & veggies are locally grown. I had the rainbow trout on a bed of cold rice. Awesome. Unique beers, loved the hard cider

Personal attention all the way
Besides being the sister restaurant to 32 East which is reknown, Tryst continues the attention to quality food, excellent and sincere service and a welcoming attitude. Enjoyed our meal for lunch and the female bartender was gracious and very informative while the server was equally attentive and made us feel welcome. What one would expect in the best San Fran/Carmel circles.

We were greeted as soon as we came in the door, everyone was very nice, helpful and knowledgeable of the menu. Our waiter gave very good recommendations as this was our first time there, Will certainly return again. Food and service was excellent. had a great time on the avenue.

Great new experience
First time at Tryst. Fast friendly service. Server knew all the specials off the top of his head. Smaller size menu with such a great variety. Lots of beers to choose from if that's your thing. Definitely will be going back soon.

I ordered the fish tacos are they were fresh and hot. Delicious. My husband ordered the same and loved it. They have a great beer menu with several different IPA's ..pleased my husband. Great outdoor dining with cool bistro lights and awesome atmosphere. Inside is energetic, cool and eclectic. Good music - wish it was louder so we could hear it better. Great wait staff and the management checked on us several times throughout the night. Overall rating is an A. Used Living Social deal so we were even happier paying less than normal.

The dinner menu has a distinct selection of meals that reflect the place's fun and cool ambience. They even had a few vegan selections!
The service was good and the food was delicious. The drinks were fun and well prepared. You HAVE to try their peanut chocolate dessert. I will certainly be visiting them often.
Their lunch menu is way too simple.

Went for lunch with my mom, and we were the only ones except for one other party in the restaurant. The menu at lunch time has a small selection, but everything we ordered was delicious. We had a sweet and sour thai style soup to start with which was great, and then split the tomato salad and the fish tacos. The waiter was very nice and helpful.

Excellent beer menu and good food!
Food was interesting and good. Several specials that change daily. Waiter made a point about most of the ingredients coming from local sources.
Service was good for most part but waiter seemed to disappear at one point for a while.
Beer list was excellent. Good selections on tap and a long bottle list with lots of variety.

Very enjoyable evening with great food, service. Sitting outside did not affect the great service. We will definitely return.

Great place to dine!
Our waiter was very patient with all of our menu questions and was spot on! Taco Tuesday is such a bargain. Gotta try the short rib taco. Everything on the menu looked delicious. Happy hour food choices are very generous. I will be back!

Great for a relaxing time outside
This restaurant was made for us who like to eat outside. The exterior tables are MUCH nicer than those inside. And the food is always consistently good. They have a new manager and things have changed a bit, but not the food. It is always a very safe bet for lunch or dinner.

Not as good as before
This restaurant has changed management and, since Jason left, it has not been as good. It interested me that they sent you next door to a smoking bar to wait for your table, even with a reservation. Their bar was full and there was no other place to wait. By the time we got our table I had a couple of drinks and wasn't very hungry any more.

A Favorite for Ouside Dining
Nice courtyard for dining plus on-street tables. Eating indoors is quite noisy, so we normally sit in the patio. The wine list is very reasonable and good, and Ted, for one, is especially knowledgeable. There is something for everyone on the menu, all nicely prepared. Loved the crispy shrimp! I also had the lettuce cups which were done Vietnamese style and were also quite tasty. Also in my party, someone ordered the lobster/corn bisque. It was more broth-y than thick, but the flavor was outstanding.

We have been to Tryst several times. The food is always excellent and creative. They have a wide variety of unusual and wonderful beer. The atmosphere is fun. Prices are reasonable. A great downtown Delray choice!

Very pleasant place to dine
This restaurant is not as good as when Jason was managing, but it is still a nice place to eat. It is relaxed, not too expensive, and everyone is friendly. Would recommend.

Great place for a good time...
Everything about Tryst makes you want to smile some things more than others. The decor and the setup outdoors are the ideal setting for a relaxed casual enjoyable evening. The creative interpretations of classic cocktails don't disappoint and whiskey drinkers will be in for a treat as will anyone who enjoys an above average beer. Because of all that I didn't care that the food was average;not bad just nothing special. Also because the staff were so friendly I was not all that bothered by the disorganized haphazard way they took care of us. However the wait staff and their support could use some training regarding the basics of table service. Regardless of all that, what Tryst does right makes me anxious for my next visit there.
