“Nice atmosphere, good food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2014

I have walked by this place many times and Groupon came out with an offer we decided to try it. Tryst is as much bar as it is restaurant. The crowd seemed to be mostly young but pretty laid back. Rob our server was excellent. He was very knowledgeable about the menu items and the ingredients that go into them. The roasted bone marrow appetizer was good but the portion is only two pieces for $10. The pork bellies in lettuce bowls was very good. A little messy to eat but who cares about that, it's a wrap. The grilled hangar steak was spot on, tender and juicy. The only knock I had was that it was a taco Tuesday so the menu was a little restricted but that is nobody's fault. It is a little pricey but most of the restaurants in Delray Beach are like that.

“Pricey "burger" but well worth it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

Whatever happened to the 8.00 burger? The burger at Tryst is in a class by itself. Really should come up with a better name because this is NOT a burger. Absolutely delicious! Happy hour is one of the best in Delray and the overall menu is quite intriguing. Have yet to have a bad meal here and we frequent Tryst at least twice a month. We are locals and this is a welcoming establishment always greeted with smiles and a pleasant staff.

“Nice Atmosphere and Wine List, but food is not good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014

Have been here several times and always hope the food will be better. Have tried their seafood, pad thai, desserts etc and not one thing has ever been of very good quality. They only had three desserts on the menu- the one I got was basically ice cream mixed with berries. On the positive note they have some interesting wines- white burgundy by the glass, a Gruner Veltliner in bottle- some of the wines I have a hard time finding in restaurants. The clientele is nicer than many places on Atlantic Avenue- one of the classier places not just people trying to impress like a Salt 7 atmosphere etc. Good beer menu as well and bartender Michelle was really good. Hopefully their food will improve- I would go more frequently.

“Always a pleasure! Delicious, fresh and local.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

I've been here several times and always have been more than satisfied. Whether it's a celebratory dinner or date night, they are always of a superior quality. One of my absolute favorite places in Delray!

Try the foie gras and the Catch of the Day or Butchers Cut.

“Good Atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

I have been to Tryst a few times and have never been disappointed. The food has been consistently good, the staff is casual but professional, and the bar is always full. I will return.
