    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.

    A colleague and I enjoyed dinner at Tryst this week. It is impossible to hear yourself think during happy hour indoors so we opted to sit outside, thanks to a well positioned fan that made it quite pleasant despite the heat. The entrees of Zatar seasoned Mahi Mahi were superb and beautifully presented. The fresh fish dip not so spectacular. Overall, we spent almost $100 for 1 appetizer, 2 entrees and no drinks or desert. Somewhat pricey, but it is a 'hot' Delray Beach dinint 'spot'.

    Average food, decent service, not a place to dine but for drinks and bar food is o.k. the happy hour offers $3 beer and $5 wine and drinks which is o.k but very limited selection of foods, still if you want to nibble on something and have a drink is adequate. We were there Sunday and there was a decent crowd but the noise level was comfortable. Will be nice when the weather cools down and can sit in their patio outside.

    Menu is fairly limited. Salad was excellent and different. Burger was really juicy. Wings are wonderful! Pad Thai lacked flavor and was bland. All in all interesting menu but limited. Aervce has been good there and attentive. Overall like this place.

    Finally ate here for the first time after several recommendations given by friends - Wish I tried it much soooner! The service is polished, friendly, and efficient. The quality and preparation of the food is exceptional. The must-haves are definitely the mahi tacos, pad-thai, crispy shrimp and the burger. Quite an extensive wine list with a wide range of prices - plenty to choose from! And the outdoor patio is really cute and comfy. A nice casual gem for any occasion!

    We were so fortunate to have Jessica as our server; she had a fantastic bubbly personality! She made us feel like she was welcoming us into her own home. Not sure of my wine choice, Jessica was kind enough to let me sample wine prior to buying a glass. She kept watch over our table without being bothersome; made sure we weren't in need of anything. The food was fabulous and cooked to perfection. The noise level makes it a bit difficult to talk but it will not keep me from going again. Wonderful evening, fantastic service and delicious food cooked the way we asked! Highly recommend Tryst!

    Wonderful atmosphere, food good, great server. However, took more than 30 minutes for burger.....Although we never complained, on 2 occasions manager came over to apologize for the wait. So obviously they recognized a problem in the kitchen. Must say a comped draft or other drink would have gone a long way. What could cost of that be $1? Although all was very good....this lack of gesture likely cost them future business. Too many other places to go in Delray. Sorry...but poor judgement.

    As a first-timer, my friend and I went to Tryst because it was near the theater. To our delight, we walked in loving the place. Casual, yet special in décor. The menu had so much to choose from yet everything looked special I had the mahi tacos as suggested by our waiter. He was knowledgeable about the entire menu. Great service. Great wines by the glass. I cant wait to go back.

    We haven't eaten at Tryst in quite some time. My husband remembered that they have great fish tacos so we went. We had a table for two outside on a beautiful evening. Our waitress was courteous and very helpful with the menu. My husband ordered the fish tacos and said they were better than before. I ordered a fish special and it was light and delicious. The food is very reasonably priced for Atlantic Avenue.

    We tried Tryst due to a Social Living coupon special and are delighted we did! We sat outside and it was a perfect setting to unwind from a hectic day. Tryst's dining selections offered a treat for a vegan ( the spicy vegan Pad Tai) and a satisfying burger for my carnivorous mate. Service could not have been better with Jennifer as our gracious server. We will return!

    Some of the food was good, some not cooked well, nice patio. Ambience was good. Music was a bit loud for my taste. There was a running around, obnoxious child next to me so maybe they turned it up so I wouldn't notice? Inside is a nice bar, very warm feeling. Good beer list. Would return to hang at the bar for a drink and an app.

    Since my last visit here a year ago (we go for the Craft Festival annually to Delray) they have changed chef and menu slightly. The food is locally sourced and organic wherever possible, the beef grass-fed and pasture raised, and everything delicious. They have cider on tap (a definite and rare plus) and in the winter often have local sausage and mash - making it the perfect comfort food hangout. But all year round it is fit for comfort and for foodies.

    The staff were excellent. Our server and the manager were attentive and on point. 3 of us ordered margaritas and all 3 of us exchanged them for the beer. They were awful. We went there for taco Tuesday. I think our bill was about $30 but not worth it. Only taco that tasted good was the shrimp one. Not worth the money spent though. Again, staff was great, outdoor seating was excellent and no cigarettes allowed in that section which was a plus. It was a decent one time experience but wouldn't go back.

    Very helpful hostess who was trying to juggle the difficulties created by expected bad weather and roughly one half of the dinner seating being outside on a patio. This made the main dining room far busier and extremely loud. Mac and cheese appetizer was among the best we have had. Fish and chips was very tasty. Fish tacos were missing something in the taste. All food total 4 stars but unless the fish tacos are improved stay away from them. Our waitress was excellent.
