We have dined here a few times. The food is good quality and the service is usually pretty good. Our problem is the noise level. There is a long bar with many patrons on stools or standing at the bar, having a great time while you are maybe 6 feet away facing their butts. If you came for a romantic... More

Food and service are top notch. I especially like their fish tacos and draft beer selection. One of my favorites in Delray Beach.

Friends suggested this awesome place in Delray on trendy Atlantic Ave. It is usually very busy and we were lucky to get 7:00 reservation on Sat night. Thank God we did! This place rocks and the service was first rate. We started with mussels in white wine garlic sauce with delicious bread and an amazing Yellowtail Crudo with evoo and... More

Spent 9 days in the palm beach / DELRAY area over spring break. Are at some amazing spots...this clearly was our family favorite. The Sea Bass was incredible - do try it. Big bonus was the wine specials we discovered. Highly recommend.

The Delray Affair was this past weekend so we drove up to Delray Beach to spend the afternoon walking Atlantic Ave and browsing the booths and shops. After a couple of hours we decided to go to City Oyster for lunch. We had the bottomless mimosa's for $12 which is a great deal since we can drink. Our party of... More

Over the years, I have had many good meals at City Oyster. This latest meal, sadly, was not one of them. We were a party of six. Other than my husband, who really enjoyed his lobster roll, none of us were that pleased. I had a salmon omelette which came out very dry. One of my daughters had the fist... More

When you go to this place---and I surely recommend that you do...understand that where it is located---in the heart of the Atlantic Avenue Fun district in Delray Beach, that this is a very happy atmosphere--and loud! If you are looking for that environment and do not feel challenged by it, you will completely enjoy your dining experience. Go for Lunch... More
