Last week I went to dinner at the Oyster after rave reviews from a few people. Upon checking in we were barely acknowledged by the very busy looking hostesses. You would think they were seating a White House dinner! Finally, they beckoned us to our table. We asked for the booth that was empty, but they were not very flexible.... More

All food ordered was incredible, service was very slow especially on drink order but it was a busy Tuesday night. Might be hard for some people to hear, tables are close and crowded but fun!

Dined here on 2 evenings and both were great! In spite of the frenetic environment, the food & service are spot on! Menu is perfect for whatever you are in the mood to eat. Sitting outside is so fun, especially if Matteo is your server! They accomodate special requests, Portions are adequate and the prices are just right!

City Oyster covers all the bases. Great Happy Hour spot with friends and amazing food for a date night with your significant other. Waiters are fun and attentive and there is always a vibrant energy in the air. Bar is always crowded at happy hour but its worth your time to hang out and have a drink anyway. You won't... More

We had dinner with friends at City Oyster. Prior to going, I had read the menu but changed my mind while there. Fish was fresh and delicious. My husband had oysters as an appetizer and was pleased. Our friends had appetizers and fish. It was a great evening and as always, we loved walking Atlantic Ave. in Delray Beach. City... More

The food is spectacular, the location is in the heart of Deleay. Our Sever, Hilary, was exceptional. Her energy was contagious. We have been to City Oyster many times before and the experience has been consistently great.

I took a friend to lunch at City Oyster yesterday for her bday - and it really beat our expectations . It was gorgeous / mild day in terms of weather - so perfect for outdoor lunch dinning ! We both ordered the fish special - it was perhaps a perfect piece of mahi , perfectly grilled with tweaking sauces,... More

good selection at Happy Hour. Arrived at 4:45PM and no seats available at the bar. Nice women let us squeeze in standing next to them. The Middle Neck Clams on the half shell and any of the Oyster selections make happy hour very happy!

Thank lexerdg74
