We went twice during our five night stay. The food and service would have brought us back a third time if we had stayed longer. A must visit when we are back!

Food and Drinks here are amazing. We always go on Mondays to avail of the half price wine offer - you can get some amazing wines for half price! Would recommend getting lots of sharing plates, oysters, sushi etc.

Have eaten here a few times over the last couple of years.. Just went on a Sunday night and it seems like its gotten pretty pricey for what you get.

Birthday stop for us. Lunch. Have been here a few times and never disappoints. Staff friendly. Oyster selection always great. Cocktails were great. Sushi boxes very fresh and large. Fish tacos and salads for the ladies were also good. Menu is very diverse. Definitely a return spot for us.

Great place for oysters and seafood. Noisy and hard to talk at the table because of the vibrant Friday night bar scene! Overall, a fun night with drinks and dinner!

Arrived Friday during happy hour for a table of 4 for an inside booth. Our server Brandon was beyond excellent, very attentive and knowledgeable of the menu. The oysters and mussels are wonderful along with the wine selection. Thank you Brandon for the enjoyable experience, we will be back

Nice oyster selection, really good cocktails. We enjoyed our pasta/seafood entrees. Our server was very nice. Enjoyed watching younger women hitting on older men at bar, very entertaining

As a starter we had the traditional Rockefeller Oysters - simply delicious - for the main course we both had salat with chicken - very good too - our waiter was friendly and took care about us the whole time ! It's absolutely recommended having dinner or lunch at the city Oyster when visiting Delray !!
