Twenty four hours after eating here my family and I still cannot stop talking about how dreadful our dining experience was. The portions were tiny, leaving us all hungry (including my 5 year old who had a full order of gnocci). Two of us ordered the halibut. When we pointed out to the waitress that it was raw in the center, she grimaced, went to the kitchen and then returned to say, well, that is how the cook likes to make it. The salmon was very undercooked as well, though not raw. When we did get our halibut back, it was cooked, but flovorless. We were also astounded by the price of our son's gnocci, $19, we estimate it was $1 per gnocci. The bread was notihng special, iggies sourdough. We also ordered a side of ""smashed potatoes"" which were so oversalted that my 9 year old daughter refused to eat it, which is saying a lot considering that her order of halibut came with nothing but a tiny piece of fish, two clams and 6 flavorless mushrooms. When we entered the resturant at 6:00 on a friday night we were all a bit surprised that the dining room was compleately empty but when we left an hour and a half latter it seemed fitting that there were only four additional diners. Though Tryst my gear itself to couples seeking a romantic latter dinner, clearly the dining situation does not bode well for its survival.
Pros: the merlot was good and fairly priced
Cons: the food, the portions, the prices
