Food was amazing. Had a reservation for 10 days, upon arrival was stuck at a two person table at end of bar by both kitchen and front doors. Could not hear anyone at the table, a mix of cold air from the front door and hot food smell from kitchen made for a NON romantic evening. Bar was so horrible we had our food before our drinks. Hostess was full of attitude, failing to reserve a table, and snapped at her co-workers rather than move herself to provide any kind of service to customers other than interrupting our meal four times. Instead she stood by our table complaining about staffing issues and seating other folks at a the comfortable tables around the back corner away from the bar, kitchen, and front door. Waste of $150 & not worth the effort.

The food was great! However... We were not greeted right away because the hostess was walking around trying to find tables, & answering the phone. Also, a couple who did not make reservations were seated before we were when we had booked a reservation. Additionally, our server dropped so many items on the table, on the floor, and all over the place it was awkward. Not sure if we were treated differently because we had a Groupon...

Absolutely wonderful. We have been one time, 9/21/12. This will be our go to place. Reasonable prices. Specific menu request were pleasantly received. Nice atmosphere with plasma TVs that did not interfere with the vibe. Our server, Tyrell was great; we will ask to be seated in his section when possible. And oh yeah, highly recommend the Carbonara.

We just had an excellent dinner at Tryst. The lobster and corn chowder is one of the best I've had in some time. Our server Joseph was awesome. The peach pie dessert was a perfect recommendation. Full marks.

"another nice gem in arlington. good food + good service = good value. shrimp tacos are ""all it"" get 'em while you can. and you can't go wrong on the pasta dishes and the pork three ways. anyway you cut it this place is worth coming to - and back again."

Went to try their burger after hearing they won the 'best of' on arlington patch. It was really good. Burger and a beer for $20. I would come back and try other meals as it has come recommended by others. I read reviews before comming and they complained about to many tv's on the walls. I would agree so gave them a 2/3 on Decor - the tv's are not needed.

I went on Friday night and had to wait for a hostess to even seat us and wait for the waiter, but everything else was fine. The burger and sweet potato fries were good.
