Argentinean | Arlington, Massachusetts, Boston Suburbs

The Best filet mignon with a variety of sauces to choose from The Tango fries are different but delicious. They are medallions of thinly cut potatoes, crisp on the outside, but tender on the inside. The wine selection is nice, and the service is good. More

I am really happy they re-opened. Very affordable wine and beer list and the food is spiced perfectly. Portions are a good size. Service is very prompt. I also really like the contemporary feel of the interior and like the Indian accents. More

Contemporary American | Arlington, Massachusetts, Boston Suburbs

Tryst is our favorite restaurant. The staff and the manager are very friendly and accommodating. The food is fresh —we appreciate the local ingredients . Sometimes we come for cocktails and appetizers, other times for for a meal. The cocktails are very generous and delicious. We love the famous shrimp taco, the piggy pops, and the salads and are delighted when there are specials—tuna tartare, lobster sliders, spring rolls. The entrees are also delicious, but we would appreciate a little more change in the menu. All in all, it’s truly a neighborhood gem! More
