    We hadn't been in a long time. Simply because of opportunity, not desire. They have hired a new chef. And it was still amazing. I tried something new. The shrimp PO boy. Large shrimp it was excellent. If you have never been. You must have the French toast and eggs Benedict. Seth was an excellent server

    Wow! I found this place for my wife and me to take my parents to, and we just loved it. Drinks? Awesome. Food? Delicious, high quality for all of us. We like to talk and the only things we said after the food came was 'wow, this is delicious!' The best burger I ever had, honestly. My dad's fish was flippin caught that day, just down the road. Wow!! We also were really fortunate to be served by Ted. He was so knowledgeable, considerate and helpful. My dad is a vodka aficionado and Ted took time to explain how they make this amazing blood orange vodka they serve there. You just don't get high quality service like that often. It made a really wonderful food and drink experience feel top notch. Thank you, Ted!

    Dined on 11/21/2014
    We enjoyed great food/dinner with outstanding service from our server! While we loved the atmosphere, we were inside (as it was a rainy night) and it was extremely difficult for our party of 6 to carry on a conversation given the noise level - and this was on a night where the place was not as packed as it usually is. Also, normal sized mixed drinks at $11-12 a pop makes one seriously reconsider ordering seconds or thirds. We left after dinner to go to another (yes, quieter) more reasonably priced bar.

    We have dined here for a very long time and have always had great service and food. Tonight was the 3rd night this week we chose to dine at Tryst. What a disappointment!! It started with our hostess; we checked in just after 6 PM and I asked for the 4 topper we usually sit at (there was only 2 of us); she stated it was "reserved". I doubted it but chose to sit outside rather than at a tiny 2 topper. At 7:15 the table was still empty and at 8:00 I mentioned it to the hostess. She stated the reservation cancelled (sure) and I said all the other tables were still open as well. With a sassy attitude while chewing gum in my face (how classy) she stated she was "only doing her job and sitting people where she had to". She got argumentative and I walked out while she was still talking. Our server tonight was far from attentive, overcharged my wine (but did correct it when I told her about it); my food was great yet my husband's was not. He sent it back but it came back exactly the same way. Rather than argue we took the remainder home. I think I will wait a while to return....

    Would definitely recommend. Great local food. Very vibrant bar scene and very loud. But that's Downtown Delray so probably wouldn't recommend if you want a quiet romantic dinner. Their menu changes every so often so make sure you ask for the specials that day.

    If you want to take part in the Delray scene Tryst is a good place to eat. You can be part of the noisy bar scene or sit outside and enjoy the Florida weather. The fish tacos or burgers are a reasonable lite bite or you can have a more expensive full meal.

    Our server Jessica was awesome as always, food was terrific. The crowd at the bar was extremely energetic and the music was way too loud...Jessica had the volume lowered several times but it kept getting raised. I found it extremely exhausting! Tryst does not need loud "bar" music....it doesn't enhance the dining experience! The food and consistent wonderful service speaks for itself. Will be going again on Sunday and hope the music will be at low volume!

    Great outdoor patio area. Heaters work in the cool evenings. Four of us returned for dinner and were disappointed that it wasn't early as good as the first time we ate there. Entrees should be memorable. Our fish was good but lacked seasoning and the presentation was blah. Service was excellent. The noise inside is deafening.

    My wife and I visited on a Friday night (which happened to be Halloween). The restaurant was crowded but they took us right away since we had a reservation. They have outdoor and indoor seating; we sat indoors since it was a bit quieter due to the private party using the outdoor area. Our server was prompt and knowledgeable and helped us with the menu choices. I picked the NY Strip and it was absolutely delicious. My wife had the Tryst burger, which she also enjoyed tremendously. All in all we had an enjoyable evening with delicious food. We'd come back again!

    Three girls out to celebrate a birthday wanting good apps, great dinners and an outragious desserts Patio is lovely. We ate outdoors. We started with a seasonal soup (pumpkin I believe) and great flatbread. We wolfed, shared, and left no morsel. Next on to the very interesting menu,schnitzel and pork pulled meatloaf. My friends were fond of the meat loaf heavily flavored with a smokey bar b que sauce. but I favored the chicken schnitzel. It had a fab salad on top and the breading was so original. The meatloaf was topped with sensational potato salad . Dessert was a very unusual bread pudding and again, were amazed. Their versions of food are unexpected and the flavors are amazing.

    I was expecting a lot out of Tryst from what I have heard of it. I made a reservation for a large table. The food was great and priced accordingly, but the drinks were not. Where my experience really fell short what that the waitress knowing that we had a party of around 15 didn't split our check. The worst part is that she told us that she wouldn't split them. When we talked to a manager he stated that she told us that she couldn't. We know what we heard, but either way she could and should have split it. It took us 45 minutes to manually count it up and pay separately. Very bad ending to what we thought was going to be a good night. Servers name was Jennifer Q.

    Tryst has the best patio in town. Their servers cannot be beat - attentive and personable, yet not overbearing. The only reason I gave the food 4 stars was my fish tacos I ordered grilled, which came out soggy and not the best. My friend got them as prepared on the menu - fried and raved about them. Don't alter a chef's recipe - great time too. $5 valet parking in Delray can't be beat.

    It was a busy night, and the kitchen was perhaps a bit overwhelmed. Food was slow coming, they ran out of their fish special but didn't let the staff know, the substitute they offered at the same $30 price was not very good. No one at the table was very impressed by what was served. That said, the servers made a big effort to recover, bought us a round of drinks, and were very nice. The ambiance was pleasant.

    Dined on 9/20/2014
    My husband and I went to Tryst for the first time last weekend. We ate inside at a table for two which was cozy but not uncomfortable. We started with the flatbread appetizer. It looked more like was a traditional single serving round pizza than the flatbreads I have had at other restaurants. It was surprisingly tasty and hubbie and I gobbled the whole thing. My scallops were cooked perfectly in a lovely mushroom sauce. My husband had the pork and said it was delicious, which means a lot since he tends to be very picky. Our server's name was TED, and he was really attentive and knowledgeable without being overbearing. He checked on us regularly and was quick to clean up the mess I made with water spilling on the table.

    The service at a Tryst was attentive and professional and the food was visually appealing and very tasty. But the noise level in the room was off the charts-we had to shout across the table to make ourselves heard. I don't know hoe the management can control guest noise (different seating? Noise diffusing wall art or mats?...) but the noise level would definitely prevent me from going back to what was otherwise a positive restaurant experience.
