"Brunch menu seems to be more limited than in the past. Still good buttermilk blueberry pancakes. Very light.
Very noisy. Not the place to carry on a conversation.

"We had a group of six meeting for Sunday brunch. Not having been there before, we chose Tryst primarily due to its Arlington location and because it had Eggs Benedict on the menu. While four of us went there certain that we were ordering Eggs Benedict, two diners changed their plans: one went with a Salmon Eggs Benedict, the other for a special that day: lobster omelette with lemon marscapone. Breakfast entrees were served with great potatoes and a (fabulous) simple green salad dressed with a Dijon vinegraitte. As yummy as our entrees were, that salad almost stole the show! Full as we were, we couldn't resist sharing a dessert. Bloody Mary's were pricey, but large."

"I had the Pig Under a Brick which was very tasty with collards and sweet potatoes for sides. The setting is informal and a bustling but not too loud for conversation."

"Our table for 5 wasn't available until 1:30, but by then Tryst was pretty quiet. The quality of our meals wasn't up to usual standards, and we can't help but think that the kitchen had run out of gas--the omelettes were bland, the corned beef hash tasted as if it had been under a heat lamp for hours, and a pot of tea was seriously overbrewed, although the cocktails were good. We like Tryst a lot but if we go again we will plan to arrive much earlier for brunch."

"Little disorganized about seating patrons with reservations (New Years Eve). Ended up at a table in the bar. Prix fixe 3-course menu - basically regular menu items. All food was very good, well-presented. Dessert was fabulous - 3 selections per patron. Definitely satisfied the sweet tooth."

"Tryst's New Years Eve menu did not disappoint. The duck breast and salmon were both perfectly cooked and expertly seasoned. Appetizer portions were generous and no bread basket was needed to fill us up. The dessert trio rounded out a delicious dinner. We dined early so service was very attentive."

"Went for brunch with three friends -- service was prompt, courteous and friendly. Very nice cocktails -- Bloody Mary and Mimosas just spot on! The food was out of this world -- from fish taco to Eggs Benedict to a lobster omelette. AND the coffee creme brulee for dessert was truly heavenly -- amazing flavor and melted in your mouth with a crispy top and soft inside. This place gets my highest brunch recommendation!"

"My husband & I made a reservation for the special New Year's 3-course dinner. It was only 8:30, & they were already out of the appetizer & the main course I wanted to order. If Tryst is going to accept reservations for New Year's Eve, it's their responsibility to have enough of every dish on the menu past 8:30. We walked out!"

"The menu selections were excellent and the food and service were outstanding. We were a group of eight and it was quiet enough to easily have a conversation."

"We had been to Tryst often when we lived in Winchester. We returned after four years to find it had changed quite a bit in terms of the type of menu, the atmosphere and the ambiance. It was quite upscale before; it is now more of a direct competitor to Not Your Average Joe's down the street. The flatbread pizza was excellent, our two drinks (Sangria) were excellent but the steak frites and fries were not really appealing at all. Service was very good."

"I ordered a salad with salmon and had to send it back as the salmon was not cooked. also the portions were quite small. I ordered the signature cocktail and it was weak. For the prices, it was a very disappointing dining experience. I had been to the restaurant before and enjoyed it but this will be my last visit."

"My party was running late, when I called to let the hostess know she was incredibly forgiving and reassuring. Despite the place being packed when we did arrive they still offered us a few options for tables (they have booths, high tables, regular tables, bar) to accommodate our preference. We were sat and greeted immediately; waiter was friendly and although the service was fast we didn't feel rushed.
I had the mussels, which were fantastic and the bolognese which wasn't great, but I'm very picky (I like my bolognese thick, this was a little watery/thin for me & the ratio of sauce to pasta was pretty pasta heavy). The wine list is pretty good, nothing mind-blowing, but the specialty cocktail options were pretty robust if that's your thing.
Overall great experience - would go again"
