City oyster always has a fine selection of PEI- and New England-harvested bivalves on its menu - outstanding. The wine list extensive and fairly priced (CO has the same Pinot Grigio as Racks for $10 less per bottle.) Music, slightly loud, however.

A bit noisy and full of happy patrons either drinking or eating The service is good for the amount of clients that it handles. Attentive and alert and willing to meet your desires and needs in enjoying the atmosphere and food. Specials are unique and quite worth the try.

Wayne- he is the bartender at happy hour you want to know. In Bartending terms- he's THE GREAT ONE. Ted, Tim, Mike, Bebe, BRONWYN, Tabitha- all wonderful as well. This is a career for these folks and they are each one of them special. Drinking here is not going to break your bank, especially around happy hour. Apart from drinking... More

Been several times and the food and service are consistently very good. Now they have added Sushi and Sashimi to their menu.

Really enjoyed our dinner here. Excellent execution, timing, presentation, service. A bit on the pricey side, but excellent quality. They do a great job with crabmeat... lump crab cocktail and crabcake highly recommended. Good attention to wine program... pricey list.

City Oyster is a very good choice when dining in Delray for a number of reasons. They focus on both seafood as well as sushi, which I prefer. My husband and I had a number of rolls, including spicy tuna and himachi. We also tried one with barbecued eel which was really great. They have a diverse wine list also.... More

2 of our 4 had Oysters East & West Coast and said they were wonderful. I had Fresh Shrimp really cold and fresh, then we had sushi & mussels all really good. Very loud and busy but enjoyable.

Good seafood at this downtown restaurant row restaurant. The oysters are fresh and I had the snapper special. It's a challenge getting a parking spot but worth it.Dining inside and out.

I have to express how impressed I am with everything about this restaurant! I love the food and ambience of this place. A lot has to do with the relaxed and friendly vibe. I attribute this to the exceptionally friendly management. The manager Bob is top notch! It is always my first choice of restaurants in Delray Beach for drinks... More

Our favorite foods do not include oysters, but LOVE their hamburgers and Cobb salad. Choose a table that is next to the outdoors, yet in the air-conditioning (they leave the doors open). Right on Atlantic Avenue in the middle of everything! Always good service!
