First choice in Delray!

excellent service and quality food in a lively atmosphere. Oysters Rockefeller and lump crab to start with crab cakes and steak to follow. All dishes executed well and served hot and timely. Wide range of wines and beer.

Had breakfast after playing golf with 1/2 dozen oysters the Bartenders were both great young women that paid attention to everything. They are a restaurant owners dream. The tend to customers and move quick to service which you don't see a lot of anymore. These to young ladies can handle a bar and make a restaurant a lot of money.... More

The food here and the options for the menu were fantastic. The value was surprisingly poor, the fish and chips were $20 and it included 3 small fritters and 4 small potato wedges...definitely offended that this was more than $15 tops. The Lobster Bisque was quite good (and homemade which is a refreshing treat in the land of bagged soups!)... More

Had dinner here and although pricey the food is excellent. Had the Hong Kong style sea bass along with the creme brûlée for dessert. The bread and olive oil is great too. Highly recommend!

My seafood tower was excellent, my wifes chicken salad was poor due to MASSIVE over seasoning of the chicken and a VERY sharp over saturated dressing on the salad. Service was good, with outside seating offering a great chance to people watch. Not the cheapest place to dine, but if everything is good, it just about merits the price.

We went for lunch, I had hig expectations for a lobster roll and fries. The lobstr roll was chopped meat with celery and onions and too much mayo, no toasted bun and no butter, was eatable at best. Mom had the fish and chips, wonderful light airy crispy batter with fries and a side salad. My husband had the shrimp... More

Right on the main strip of Delray Beach this restaurant is considered one of the best in the area. There is a nice sized patio to sit outside and a very "happening" bar inside however it's very loud so if you are coming to "talk" choose outside. The food is great with an interesting selection of sushi and a great... More

I came to City Oyster with five other family members and we all thought it was outstanding. We started with the classic iceberg wedge salad (great), oysters on a half shell, the oyster stew ( A MUST, to try). For the main entree, I had the Hong Kong style Mahi which I really really enjoyed. And I tried the crabfish... More

Wow! Fantastic dinner at City Oyster tonight! I had a Kale salad that didn't look as great as it tasted. Perhaps it was the dressing on the side that may have ruined the presentation but it still was great. Shredded kale, very green and fresh was accompanied by fresh shredded parmesan cheese and cashews. I asked for a different dressing... More
