I go to a lot of restaurants for lunch in the Downtown Delray corridor, I find them to be overpriced for a working person, but when I went to City Oyster for lunch I had a benti box with sushi and it was such a good bargain, delicious, fresh fish and so much food I had dinner too. I will... More

My wife & I have been to this restaurant many times as we live here all year and are not tourists or snowbirds. We recently went for a nice dinner. Firstly the two hostess did not even acknowledge us as they were way to busy laughing and talking amongst themselves. Finally, when there were two other couples behind us they... More

Have been eating here for about 15 years. Can be a little noisy, but the food is always good. Lobster tail (Ordered 1 rather the 2 on the menu) was great. Also had the sea scallops which are always good.

Six of us had a terrific lunch yesterday at an outside table at the City Oyster. The salmon BLT's that two people ordered were excellent, as were the fish tacos that two others ordered. I had a bento box that had a fresh variety of sushi and a delicious seaweed salad. It didn't hurt that bottles of wine were half... More

This is a great spot right in the heart of Atlantic Ave in Delray Beach. Service was excellent, and the restaurant was very clean. Great outdoor patio with views of Atlantic Ave. Highly recommend the sushi (Delray roll was delish, with fresh lobster meat, avocado, and mango). 50% off bottles of wine on Mondays!

If you want to be insulted by a rude, nasty, insipid server, this is the restaurant for you. If you want food that has more salt than flavor, than eat here. The owner doesn't seem to think he has any problems with his staff abusing the customers, so don't expect any consolation from him. Just save your money and palate... More
