Surprised that this restaurant was so good. Happy hour appetizers are a steal and there's a lot of choices. Had the seafood dip very nice with pita. Had a couple of great IPAs before dinner at HH and felt little pain. Dinner was meatloaf-good not great. Smothered in a ketchup gravy that was forgettable. Told the waitress the meal was... More

Well, it will be missed. Word on the street has it that the rent got too high, even for a busy place like this. They supposedly will join forces with Smoke BBQ next door, and re-open bigger and better in May 2017. Let's hope so. The new tenant is supposed to be a burger chain.

Tryst is a very good restaurant with great ambiance and delicious food. The crispy gulf shrimp are amazing, although as it says in the menu is a very small portion. The spring pea humus is delicious (the pita bread was not the best, it could've been fresher). The Pad Thai and Cedar River Hanger Steak were amazing! Service could be... More

While there are only a small handful of Atlantic avenue restaurants that are worthwhile... this is certainly not one of them. While the perception from standing outside or inside, is that of charming and inviting, one attempt at a meal in this place will quickly alert you to the fact that it is anything but the fact. The biggest flaw... More

We had been skipping this restaurant every weekend, thinking that the dinner menu was a little too trendy. But I was wrong. Made a reservation on Yelp (sorry TripAdvisor!) but then called direct to see if we could come just a little later. Even though they appeared to be booked-up for night, the hostess made it happen for us. Ate... More

Got a Groupon here before a trip, very quirky and fun! The waitress was super nice, the inside was a darker funkier style, outside was a cool terrace with a big colorful mural. I had the Pad Thai which is supposed to be very popular and let me tell you, it was the BEST I've ever had!! I almost ate... More

Down in Delray for an anniversary, and we had a table in outside in the back of the patio area. The service was excellent and the wait staff explained the menu very well. The Grilled Mahi Mahi is the best fist I have ever had. We will certainly go back here again if we get back down to Delray in... More

Had the seafood dip but it was super dry and barely spreadable..rec by waitress. Had rib eye special of nite..needed more draining but the cheese kale was great. Brownie with ice cream was a super hard Brownie ( almost like a thick cracker) with fast melting vanilla ice cream ( It was hot outside) but didn't win us over. This... More
