We had a great brunch here on a Sunday. All food was very good. Service was also friendly and attentive. Coffee was nothing special, though.

It was a great evening as we did try oysters, prime rib and some sea food over rice. It has a style and the heavenly taste. Recommended though pricy.

The tables from this sun drenched restaurant spilled onto the sidewalk and were filled with lunch diners. And for good reason. The food is quite good! My blackened fish tacos were the best ever. Though they dripped with more juices than I would have liked, the flavor was unbeatable. Nicely infused with cilantro and accompanied by a fresh salsa and... More

This is by far the best restaurant on the Avenue. Every time I'm in town I stop by for dinner. I was there over the Holidays and ate here twice! Everything on their menu is fantastic. I've had the Scallops in Rissotto (amazing!), the Peruvian Bass (sooo good!), and my husband claims that the Seared Tuna is the best he's... More

So we are walking into City Oyster and we had a reservation at 6:30, but they told us to come at 6:15. We did just that and we were just told to... More

Went for brunch on a Sunday and were seated right away near the front windows. I had the sushi/sashimi bento box which came with a huge bowl of miso soup. The volume of food was very large for the price and the sushi was excellent. Also had the wine flight sampler which again was a great value at only $15.... More

Long time bar manager Wayne aims to please and is right on top of things with a smile and friendly banter. This is a fun place for drinks, apps, dinner and to meet people.
