Best Oysters in Delray Beach!

City Oyster is a fun delicious place to enjoy brunch, lunch or dinner! I LOVE their Lobster Bisque and of course their fresh oysters are AMAZING!

We went as a group for a birthday. The service was slow,,,,they sent my husband the wrong dish twice. The shrimp and grits was cold, Someone ordered a burger and that looked okay. Maybe it was a bad day but we won't go back.....there are too many great restaurants in Delray!

Had to wait over an hour for a table. It took almost that long to see a server. Once the food finally arrived, it was good but extremely slow service and they didn't pay much attention to their tables. I did see them laughing and talking alot amongst each other or with tables of familiarity.

We were in Delray for 2 nights with 13 girls! We had the best sushi and great drinks! We were all able to sit together and the staff were very efficient! We will definitely go back the next time we are in Delray!

Thought the crowd was mid-age group (40s) and might be an good social bar scene.. Well, not much of social scene and the service is way too slow!! They tried to make up for an extra glass of wine after they messed up with my order which I waited for more than half an hour (just and appetizer) yet not... More

After a 12 hour drive I wanted a little seafood - the son, who lives in the area, heard this was really good. I was tired and he had eaten a large lunch so we decided on some appetizers. The special of the day, some fruity crab dip with plantains - I don't know the cost but it was just... More

We dined with friends who had been before, but it was our first time. Our waitress was pleasant, informed, attentive and quite frankly one of the best we'd had anywhere. The food was well presented and delicious, not to mention plentiful. My husband had the gumbo - loaded with seafood and I had the pan seared Hong Kong dish with... More
