Everything was exceptional including service, ambience and drinks. Only flaw was the Gemstone Beef Tataki which had a great sauce but the meat was cut in bigger chunks which were tough to chew.

Side dishes awesome. Mains were overcooked and my steak was cold. They sat us by the entrance door so a cold wind with every entry and exit.

We were first time guests at Tryst last night and thoroughly enjoyed our evening. We spent 2 hours enjoying a delicious appetizer, wine, small plates (generous portions) and tea. We were not rushed and felt very welcome. We will definitely return.

I absolutely love Tryst. We were there early so it was very quiet. We sat near the Christmas tree. It was perfect. Service was amazing and the food was delicious. Such creative combinations of textures and flavors. Perfect.

This was our third visit, and Tryst continues to delight. The longstanding favourites, such as the brussel sprouts and sourdough bread, are delicious. New menu items, like the deconstructed pork baos, were spectacular. Enjoy Tryst with friends, because there are too many menu options you'll want to try for just 2 people!

Fantastic food, amazing and attentive service. The menu was interesting and had a good variety of items to choose from. We ordered the brussel sprouts, charcuterie, duck croquettes, beet flatbread, squash salad and all the desserts! Every item we ordered was delicious. We will be back!

Delicious "small plate" dining experience. Well made and beautifully presented, most of it locally sourced from vendors you would recognize from the farmer's market or other reputable outlets. Nice views of Perron St in downtown St. Albert. Friendly staff throughout.

Food was very tasty, however even for small sharing plates portion sizes are small and more expensive than many other like restaurants.

The new menu was excellent! The brussel sprouts were crispy and delicious, the bread and butter ( my favourite) was soft and the perfect amount of salt, the carrots were so creative and I loved the sauce, and the scallops were cooked just right! Amazing from start to finish!

Food is amazing! Service is fantastic (thank you Aaron)! Perfect portions for a couple to share. We always order too much because everything is so yummy. Tonight they even made a past drink special for me. The only downside for us is the noise level. The small, open space allows sound to travel so it's tough for an intimate conversation when it's busy- which is most of the time, lol.

Food was hit and miss. We actually asked for salt for some of the dishes. Somehow all the food came at once and it was overwhelming. Had to ask for another drink, it was not offered by the waitress.

Wow! This is the first time we have been here and it is incredible! We are foodies and fairly particular about where we want to spend our money to eat. This place will not disappoint! The food and drinks are amazing, the portions are great, well priced, great atmosphere. We will definitely be back and also be telling all our friends and family about Tryst. A true gem!
