Good food? Great food! Good service? The bartender is amazing! Worth the price? Yes Will we go back? Yes! What can I say, we sat at the bar and ordered dinner and drinks, and the service was incredible. He was giving suggestions, and definitely steered us in the right direction, not just what was most expensive. Everything tasted wonderful and... More

I stayed in Little Havana for a night and found the River Oyster Bar by accident while walking around. There is a massive construction project going on around the restaurant, this place is an oasis in the midst of it. Although the menu is upscale the place it a very warm neighborhood feel to it, evidenced by a number of... More

This place is next to a huge construction project and I'm told that their building is due to be demolished. Pity, it is a great spot. Very well-structured wine list pairs with most any offering. Hard to go wrong with the prix fixe lunch menu (though two oysters seems a bit scant). I was surprised at the amount of spice... More

Yes they are fresh, sadly no Florida or Golf coast oysters. We had the Snapper Tartar, and well as the Tuna Tartar for appetizers.. It was not bad, but... More

I've always been happy dining at River Oyster Bar. Lunch today was Roasted Oysters with chorizo (delicious) and Build Your Own Tacos. I went with grilled maui. It was the perfect lunch on the lighter side. River Oyster Bar will be moving soon to a new location. Wherever that is, I'll be there.

Expect to wait if you plan to show up without reservations. We managed to pull up to a single stool at the bar and sipped a great Sancerre for about 30 minutes before being seated. It was well worth it...The oysters (west coast) were fantastic and were followed by the whole fried snapper (Key West) which was delectable. As a... More

During our last trip to Miami in November 2013, we found the River Seafood and Oyster Bar located off Tobacco Road at 650 S. Miami Ave, across the river from the downtown area. As it was evening, and not having been to this establishment before it took me a couple of go arounds to find it. I then discovered their... More

A perennial favorite of mine in the Magic City. Sad that it's moving to a new location, but confident it will loose none of its appeal. Fresh fish and ceviche are always outstanding and the friendly and knowledgeable bar and wait staff are terrific.
