Very nice place, trendy and always full. Oysters are very expensive here and small. Sushi was great but your paying for the location, which to be fair is ideal. Eaten here a couple of times and had a few happy hours. 1/2 price drinks and appetizers at the bar, worth a pop in

I first went here with my boyfriend for dinner on a weeknight. Our service was awesome and a our waitress was very deficient. We started with drinks. The wine and beer selections offer something for everyone. They offer liquor, but we don't do mixed drinks. We started with the brussels sprouts app and OMG if this restaurant served nothing but...

Had lunch here recently and loved everything. Our server was also very friendly and helpful. Don't remember his name but he was from Cape Cod. Loved the salad selections, the oysters and sandwiches. Prices are reasonable , too

I visited this small gem on busy Friday night for a friend's birthday gathering. We had a great time. It was a very busy Friday night in Delray but our server (Stacy) stayed on top of things. Strong drinks, great food, and a fun a atmosphere!

Food and service were very good. A truly reliable dinner option right in the center of things. Oysters are always fresh and delicious. We also had scallop which were perfectly cooked and the deviled eggs with caviar.

City Oyster in Delray Beach Fla is a very very popular restaurant. You should always call ahead to get a reservation. I was there in the off season “June” and got right in with a party of seven. Even though it was off season Delray was overflowing with money and the beautiful people. The restaurant was also full. The Restaurant... More

Had a great meal with our family while on vacation. Nice variety of oysters and the fish from Key West was fresh and great. The gentleman who waited on us was very pleasant and helpful.

Fat juicy chilled oysters. What more could you ask for, except a good cold beer and outside dining. Can't wait to go back.

This place is great for oysters obviously with a large selection. They have a happy hour and offer $1.25/oyster if you sit at the bar. I do like the restaurant itself and have a wide selection and bring a good crowd. Food is decent!
