I have visited City Oyster a number of times now and they never disappoint. The restaurant offers a wide variety of options for the seafood lover with a classic elegance that is never pretentious. My favorite dish so far is the bisque, but they always have a delightful selection of oysters whose vastly different flavors can be sampled as the... More

We have eaten here before and the food is always very fresh and delicious. We started with the Tuna ceviche which was outstanding. It had a good kick to it. I am not sure what the spice was , but it was fantastic. I had the fish tacos and my husband had the mussels. The tacos were ok. You have... More

Went here again last night and it's a GREAT PLACE because the atmosphere is nice and the food menu has something for everyone. 2 of us had sushi, another had steak - everything's delicious. It is pricey but that's Downtown Delray Beach for ya. Definitely going back as its one of our favorite spots to meet friends at.

My friend and I had dinner here while visiting the area. We both had sushi and split a seaweed salad. The wine list was very extensive and had some great choices. Sushi was very good. Service was attentive. Highly recommend!

I love this place. The sushi and oysters are excellent, but all of the entrees I have tried are very good. Also, they have a great wine selection. During Happy Hour at the bar, it's a great place to connect with locals - kind of a Cheers atmosphere. Highly recommend!

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

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.

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
