The atmosphere and sushi here are amazing, can be a bit crowded at certain times with a wait but as long as you plan accordingly should be fine. It is downtown so you can go for a nice walk after dinner.

I sat at the bar & ordered the blackened tilapia for lunch; it was accompanied by luscious rice & a delicious salad. The blackened seasoning was not overly salty, which is often the case with this dish. The service at the bar was friendly and attentive. I would love to return to the City Oyster Bar upon my return to... More

One of my favorite restaurants on the avenue. Great fish dishes and a nice long bar area. Eating outside is always a treat and the street scene is vibrant.

We had an entirely mixed experience in food and drink. The three types of sashimi I ordered was mediocre and lacked the taste and firmness of truly fresh. On the other hand the more traditional cooked mahi with polenta that my wife ordered was excellent. My St Francis chardonnay was fresh and delightful; her Chilean Sauvignon Blanc was oxidized and...

Visited this restaurant with my son. We had a variety of oysters which were tasty, fresh, etc. I had simply grilled local snapper. I thought it was dry and uninspired. My son had the seared ahi tuna. He really liked it. The service was friendly. The restaurant was certainly lively. The bar scene was pretty active. A little loud but... More

I had dinner at City Oyster with my family and we decided to sit and eat at the bar. The bartenders were very funny and entertaining. I ordered the Mahi-Mahi which was excellent. We ordered some sushi as well and I am not a big fan of sushi, but it was very good! I will be back again to City... More

Lunch was pretty good. Nice indoor/outdoor ambiance. Friends go to place for fish and chips. Great friendly, attentive service. Salad was a little on the bland side, fries were just the way I like them. Crispy.

When we have clients in town, City Oyster is one of our go to places. While the name is City Oyster, it does have excellent seafood but the filet mignon is absolutely fantastic. We generally have a large group when we go (10+) and the service is always excellent. Seafood or steak, this is a great restaurant on Atlantic Avenue
