The setting, service, menu ... all consistent, and all outstanding! An intimate & comfortable restaurant, with good parking. Service is sharp, crisp, and friendly. And the menu is terrific. Great seafood, and creatively done! You will enjoy!!

Very good and very friendly. It's casual even though the business crowd may be dressed up. Seafood special and a beer was $31 plus tax/tip. I'm a cheap charlie but I felt it was worth the money. I'll be going back.

We had a really delicious meal at the River Oyster Bar. We loved the variety of seafood offered -- unusually prepared or simply grilled -- and it all tasted great. We shared a variety of oysters and cerviche to start, had a great bottle of wine and loved the snapper, branzino and cioppino. The desserts were hard to resist and... More

great food, beautiful decor, wonderful service--this restaurant has it all. Spend a very enjoyable evening there--everything was perfect. And prices are more than reasonable for Miami. Go for the stone crabs and the Albarino. Delicious!

This is really a marvelous restaurant. Food quality is A-1, and so is the service and ambiance. Super fresh oysters or try the wild salmon sashimi rolls for appetizers. All fish is fresh and wonderful. This time I ventured with their butter poached blue crab and gnocchi with truffles and felt like heaven. You can also sit at the bar... More

Whenever I am back in Miami, my friends and I meet here at least once for happy hour. I really do love this place and the wait staff. They are really attentive and efficient. The food and cocktails are great! The only complaint I have is that the hostess/host always seem to be unnecessarily snooty. I will not lie, this... More

Had a great lunch here our last day in Miami. We ordered stone crabs, ceviche and a whole fish grilled. The food was fabulous.

A warm welcome by a congenial host to this small but smart dining room which specializes is fresh fish. Go for the DAILY 7, day a week happy hour with wine, beer and drink specials and 1/2 price oysters from their extensive selection. Also a great and fun bar menu with small plates like Fried Oyster Po'Boy Sliders, Bacon wrapped... More

Cool place. Packed with great crowd. Great pictures on walls. Cool infusions. If you are fish/sea food lover, you will enjoy it immensely. But will enjoy it also if you are not.

My wife and I go there regularly, especially for happy hour. The drinks are great but it's the oysters that really shine. We usually take a sampling of all of them and wash them down with a martini. The bartenders are great. They even remember what we drink after weeks not being there. When we stay to eat, we have... More
