Tryst has great décor, a cool vibe
that is amped up with a live DJ on the weekends, and great seating outside on the sidewalk along Beach Drive. Their drink menu is good: imaginative cocktails, an extensive beer selection, and a decent wine list. I definitely recommend Tryst for cocktails, conversation, and maybe an appetizer. I would also definitely go somewhere else for dinner. The food is unimaginative and the quality is disappointing.. the panzanella caprese salad: had more soggy croutons than any other ingredient. and only two pieces of tomato in the entire dish. The service was friendly, but poor: most memorable was the bus person who put a dirty plate from another table on our table while she gathered our plates."

We had an amazing time, we were
there for Valentine's Day and both of us had the 4 course dinner. We were first greeted by the host, and he was very personable. The food was awesome and the service was impeccable! All of the staff was very friendly and attentive. The music was slightly loud, but this did not damper our experience whatsoever. I would highly recommend this gastro pub to anyone! The chef is very creative and skilled at plating. We will definitely go back next time we are in St. Petersburg."

Good food. Reservations aren't
helpful when it comes to table location. We got stuck outside in the cold."

We made a last minute reservation
on Valentine's Day. We were greeted as though we were their only guests. Service was swift but unobtrusive. Drinks were excellent, and all the courses of food were very good."
Dined on 2/14/2014
The food was quite good, but don't
expect a quiet dinner. Tryst is more of a bar that serves food, so the music is a bit loud and the lighting a bit dim for a traditional dinner--but that makes it a great bar! The decor is very cool, the drinks are excellent, and the music is great. The salads were fresh and delicious and the main dishes were huge (and very tasty), but it is also a little pricey--not awful, but not a budget place either. I would suggest Tryst as a great bar with great beverages and decent outdoor seating in St. Petersburg."

My boyfriend and I enjoyed
ourselves. The energy was lively and our server attentive. We particularly enjoyed the crème brulee."

Extensive beer list: Food menu
very limited in fact we could only find an appetizer that was to our liking. actually it was very tasty. It's too bad the dinner menu is so limited."

The Chicken Wings with habenero
were awesome - good heat and good flavor!"
Dined on 12/26/2013
We loved the delicious duck spring
rolls, risotto balls with marinara sauce and crab cake sliders for appetizers. My husband called the Morning Glory Angus Prime Burger, "The best burger in town". Our friend loved the Vegan Burger as well. The Grouper sandwich was fresh, cooked perfectly and tasty. If it's a nice evening, sit outside. Inside can be noisy if you want to talk. The service was wonderful. Several different staff members checked on how we were enjoying our food during the meal and if we needed refreshers on drinks. Definitely going back."
Dined on 12/14/2013
Good food and atmosphere but very
loud. I would say more of a bar atmosphere with good music. Hard to hear if you are wanting to dine and visit. There is also outside seating and lounges that are cozy. Our waiter was very good but we found it interesting that he kept bringing us drinks without us even asking - that would be fine if it was non-alcoholic but alcohol I don't think that should be done. Plus we might want a different drink and then he would have to take it back."
Dined on 11/15/2013
We sampled multiple cocktails and
they were all well crafted. Small plates were awesome. We sat inside and loved the decor. Really hopping patio as well. If we lived in St.Pete we would be here all he time."
Dined on 11/2/2013
My party shared an appetizer and
had entrees and drinks. Everything was very good."
Dined on 10/19/2013
A friend suggested we try Tryst so
we did. It was a lovely evening so we sat outside, which would have been nice, but had a party of smokers next to us. The food was good, though not exceptional, the menu interesting, though limited, and the service was fine. I have no specific complaints, yet don't think it was special enough to warrant another visit. Too many other great places downtown."
Dined on 10/15/2013
The food was good, I do not know
what the difference in brunch, lunch or normal menu was?????"
Dined on 10/5/2013
Would highly recommend this
restaurant, especially for special night out. Limited menu, but food was very good. Great ambience."
Dined on 9/14/2013
I ordered the Steak and Eggs
brunch special and it was a ginormous 12 oz. steak with eggs and potatoes on the side. Extremely well cooked, seasoned and excellent sauce. It's great for a real guy's appetite. It's a Guy's Brunch must!"

we started at bar with jessie as
our server she is very pleasant, knowledgeable, friendly & makes a great drink had a good time with her. moved to outside table for dinner where jimmy b took care of us he again is a good server, friendly, knows menu in & out we did have many questions being first timers , and a great sense of humor. we ordered the baha tacos & charcuterie board (meat board) as entrees both were delicious this is a great place to share with each other and the fruit crisp for dessert very good. all in all it was a great first visit but it will not be our last. the entire operation is top notch."
Dined on 9/13/2013
It would be nice to be able to sit
in an outdoor café and enjoy your meal without smoke pouring in your face from a chain smoker sitting next to you. One of the ways I judge a restaurant is by the bread they serve. Tryst serves none. I was asked how I wanted my salmon cooked. I said I wanted it cooked - not rare. So the waiter said, "So you want it well done." I said, "No, I just don't want it rare." It came out a massacred over cooked piece of salmon. I cook salmon all the time and it comes out beautifully. I did enjoy the Tryst martini!"
Dined on 9/8/2013
The food was okay, but for the
money it wasn't close to good enough. The beer list was great, but again more expensive then similar restaurants."
Dined on 9/6/2013
My husband and I went to order a
few plates form their menu. We LOVED everything it was hard to decide which exactly was our favorite from the shrimp flatbread to the tandoori chicken being so tender everything was perfect. We definitely will return!"
Dined on 9/2/2013
The food was just ok the menu
itself not overly inspired. The focus seems to be on the mixologist."

On August 24, 2013 I proposed to
my future wife at Tryst. The restaurant accomodated us tremendously. They allowed our friends to decorate our table, and I hired a local artist Mikel Soul-Hop to come sing "Shai" If I ever fall in love, to her, he did an amazing job! The weather held up Thank You Jesus! Before walking up to our table outside I blindfloded my fiancee and surpised her with all our friends at the table. Our waitress had only been working for a couple of days, but she was very sweet and accomodating. I ordered champagne and Sammosas and they were good, but pretty small compared to the pictures online. All of our guests were pleased with there entrees. I look forward to returning in the future. Thanks Tryst"

Great service all the way through
the evening. We ate inside for dinner and then the staff set us up a table outside for cocktails to listen to the fabulous DJ Coro. The food was exceptional from the meaty crab cakes to the halibut special. Oh, the mahi taco's rocked! This is my favorite restaurant in all the Tampa Bay area."
Dined on 8/11/2013
Had a great dining experience.
Beer was cold, food was delicious and our server was awesome. Jimmy B really made the overall experience great. He is the perfect fit for the Tryst experience."
Dined on 8/3/2013
Food and service were worth coming
back for but it was way too loud inside. It was a struggle to have a conversation and we all basically gave up trying to talk to anyone across from us....there were only 4 of us."
Dined on 8/4/2013
Was surprised to see the drastic
menu change while the food was good i would have liked to see of the old menu there."

VisitedTryst on my birthday with
my wife and stepson and was very pleased with the food and quality of service. The waiter was upbeat and knew the menu well which was a great help to first time diners.."

What a treat to find such an
amazing restaurant during my weekend visit to St. Petersburg. I loved the ambiance. The food was absolutely amazing (inventive, fresh and tasty!) and the specialty drinks were very fantastic. Enjoyed our waiter Brian W. He was very helpful and accomodating. I would highly recommend this restaurant and hope to make it back to St. Pete again soon to enjoy another dining experience at Tryst"
Dined on 7/21/2013
Excellent service and ambiance.
They changed the menu which was disappointing."
Dined on 7/20/2013
We didn't know that they service
an "early dinner" menu on Sunday. No sure how much was missing from the regular dinner menu - but we looked on line, chose the restaurant for the selections, and found something different at the table."
Dined on 7/15/2013
Great food, drinks, service and
ambience. The dining room/bar area blends together and is pretty upbeat. The space is somewhat small which we thought made it really cool, but this isn't the place for a quiet date night. Tryst definitely brings a new element to the Beach Drive scene in St. Pete. As a Tampa resident, I'm jealous!"
Dined on 7/14/2013
Decent food, sub par drinks and
sub par service. When we arrived, our waiter introduced himself as our waiter and said "as if you care". The drinks were the reason we went, but they included too much juice and could really taste the alcohol."
Dined on 7/13/2013
Fresh, real food. Comfortable and
stylish seating areas. Personable and perfect service."
Dined on 6/29/2013
We have been to Tryst for a few
meals and have never been disappointed! The food is always phenomenal and the drinks are fantastic! There is always a vibrant atmosphere and it keeps us coming back again and again! If you are ever in the St. Pete area, make your way to Tryst! You won't be disappointed!"

We had a wonderful experience here
having dinner for our friend's bachelorette party! The service, bar menu, food and view were all amazing! Loved the filet tartare and pasta carbonara."
Dined on 6/15/2013
Very very very loud inside, could
not hold a normal conversation."
Dined on 6/15/2013
We went to Tryst this past
weekend, and I was extremely disappointed. It was pouring rain when we arrived, but they still seated us at an outside table! When I inquired about an empty inside table, the host told me that it was reserved for someone who had requested an inside table. I had no idea you had to request to sit inside when it's raining outside. No other restaurant on Beach St. had their outdoor seating available-- Tryst should strongly consider this. I would have been happy waiting for an indoor table, but I was never given that option. The food was decent and our waiter was great. However, it's really frustrating to drop a couple of bills on a dinner where you have to dry yourself off afterward."
Dined on 6/2/2013
While pricy (most dinner entrees
in $20-$30 range) we sat outside and had a great time. Excelent cocktails and friendly waitstaff. Skip dessert and head to Pacuigos instead - cheesecake was underwhelming. Can be quite loud and lots of folks were just having drinks."
Dined on 4/19/2013
Service was excellent. Amanda is a
superb waiter. Food was outstanding and we appreciated being able to split all our dishes so we could sample more of the wonderful food."
Dined on 3/15/2013
This was my Second Time to Tryst.
The food is excellent as well as the service. The only draw back is it gets too loud."
