We went here and asked where the oysters were from - they didn't know - it's an oyster restaurant and the waiters had to ask. For the price of the oysters I would think they would know each and every day. We requested clams and they said they didn't have any. The staff was quite rude and acted as if... More

We visit City Oyster when we come in town....sushi, oysters, wide selection of draft beer and wines....does it get better? We were able to hit happy hour and got half price drinks and dollar off oysters. The new oyster stew was excellent. At least 3 of the raw tuna dishes were perfectly prepared....sign up for birthday club for annual free... More

Eating at City Oyster is a real experience, especially to those of us visiting Florida in winter -- eating at an open-air restaurant in December. Not only was the food great, the people-watching was a nice bonus. Our group of four had drinks (excellent), appetizers (fresh oysters), and various entrees. I had the fish-and-chips which was not only delicious but... More

Super fresh seafood, great salads, nice fair pour on the drinks, inside and out dining. This place is becoming a fixture in Delray Beach (a good fixture) and they appear not to be resting on their laurels.

Just went to City Oyster for lunch with a friend for a birthday celebration. Haven't been here for a few years since last time it was smelly and dirty, today was a totally different experience. The bar was clean and did not have that "kitchen odor" The oysters were fresh, cold and so delicious, with a large variety that you... More

My husband and I met friends at City Oyster on a Sunday (all you can drink mimosas and bloody Mary's). We had eastern oysters - delish - and fresh fish tacos (mahi). The fresh fish tacos were so good that we returned on Wednesday to eat them again! The sushi was unbelievably fresh! We will definitely return every time we... More

This is one of a few "City" Restaurants in S. Florida. It is one of the older restaurants on this happening street and in a perfect location to watch all the action especially when seated at the outside tables. Their stone crab is excellent in the season and they now have a really good sushi bar to add to all... More

We have been to this restaurant more than a few times... I can honestly say that it has never disappointed and in fact, has always been the same... VERY GOOD! Our favorite is the Market Fish, simply prepared (blackened is our typical choice). This menu choice comes with a small salad, grilled vegetables and white rice. It is easy to... More

City Oyster was a wonderful dining experience. I had the grouper, it was phenomenal, my wife had the scallops, out of this world. Food was hot, perfectly cooked and served by a great server. Drinks were slightly overpriced, but that is par for the course in Delray. If you have never been, it is well worth the price.
