Went out for a nice family dinner while staying in Delray Beach. Crowded during April break but we found a nice table outside. Very good service and accommodating of our kids and food allergies. Great place to enjoy a good dinner along the Ave. in Delray.

The oysters and the fish tacos were very good. The roast beef omelet was good (have had better, but very enjoyable). We almost didn't have any of it because when we went in, the manager was frazzled and telling us we could sit, but we had to hurry because they were closing. If this was said once, I could understand,... More

First time we ate at City Oyster we had some of the best Asian fusion foods we ever ate. We sat outside and watched the people on the street and it was a lot of fun. To this day my wife is still raving about the salad she had... no other place like it on the Ave.

I have eaten at many of the restaurants on the strip over the years, as I visit Delray often to see my parents. We ate here in April 2014 with my wife, kids and folks in tow. I was a bit hesitant to try City Oyster given some of the recent tripadvisor reviews, but it's received high critical reviews and... More

I was there on the evening of 4/15 with my wife, two kids and my in-laws. The waiter came over and we ordered our drinks. Along with our drinks we asked for tap water. It did not come with our drinks. So several minutes later when we saw the waiter we again asked for tap water. It did not come,... More

I go to a lot of restaurants for lunch in the Downtown Delray corridor, I find them to be overpriced for a working person, but when I went to City Oyster for lunch I had a benti box with sushi and it was such a good bargain, delicious, fresh fish and so much food I had dinner too. I will... More

My wife & I have been to this restaurant many times as we live here all year and are not tourists or snowbirds. We recently went for a nice dinner. Firstly the two hostess did not even acknowledge us as they were way to busy laughing and talking amongst themselves. Finally, when there were two other couples behind us they... More
