Great menu with a lot of variety. Really enjoyed the shrimp and scallop 'boke' but would probably disappoint someone looking for a spicy curry. Attentive wait staff. One warning if you go to the bar, social distancing is not an option nor does it seem...to be encouraged.More

The place has wonderful oysters and a great location. It is a terrible shame that management allows such poor service. We couldn't get a second plate of oysters or another cocktail. It was as though the bartender had quit mid shift. When we recognized that...this "service" was the norm, we attempted to pay our bill. It took 10 minutes more to actually get a bill. As we looked around, we noticed everyone was waiting. I'm not blaming the staff. I have to believe management hasn't properly trained them.More

The food wasn’t bad, but the marketing was very deceptive. I popped in at happy hour with my wife and young daughter for 1 drink and a couple of appetizers. What was listed as $3 was actually $18 because some non existent fine print claimed...I had to get a minimum of 6. $79 for a happy hour snack advertised as great happy hour prices seems a bit of a scam. To make matters worse, when I asked for clarification of my bill from the waiter, he reacted as if I were a fool. If you want ok food at prices that are 150% of nyc prices served with a surly attitude, then you may enjoy this place .More

Not sure the bar is open at this time, but every February this has been one of our happy hour destinations during the Del Ray ATP Tournament. The oysters on the 1/2 shell are consistently good and there is a discount on a large selection...of wines. It is usually packed in the bar area; be prepared to stand until someone leaves and then share 1 or 2 stools as your oysters arrive. It was fun watching golf, Daytona race, and local tennis tourney on the 3 screens in the bar, but when we went in 2/20 there was no tennis. Bartender said their provider required payment based on occupancy for the entire restaurant (rather than the bar occupancy) so they didn't get all the sports channels anymore. This was disappointing and led us to try other happy hour bar-restaurants.More

Fresh and delicious Sushi! We waited for a table outside to make sure we were socially distant and the nice manager made sure we didn't wait long and that we were happy with the table once seated. Delicious!!! Nice Staff too!!

My family and I picked this place by chance and made a reservation. First it is in the center of a hopping and trendy area of Delray Beach. It was first time to the area and wow it was active and fun. You wouldn’t know...Covid existed after visiting this area filled with bars and restaurants. We had an outside table and started with beer flights of 4. Excellent beer choices. The we did the calamari for appetizer and it was the best calamari I’ve been had. I ordered the sweet potato crusted Mahi and it was great. All of our foods was excellent. I’ve been in the area for a week and this was the best restaurant we ate at. Highly recommend it and you won’t be disappointed.More

We went at 12:30 p.m. on a Tuesday and I was hoping for the brunch menu, but that’s only on the weekends. My husband had 6 Prince Edward Island oysters, which were very good. I had the crab cake, absolutely delish! My husband had the...lobster roll, which was also good. I enjoyed their mojito made with Appleton Estate rum and he had the Atlantic punch, which is made with Diplomatico rum and was quite good. The service was great and we really had a fabulous experience!More

I went there for happy hour with some friends. We ordered oysters, fish dip and some other stuff. None of it was good. I was so sad. Its like we got the worst of the worst oysters. The fish dip had that look where it...had been sitting out for too long look. I felt bad for the server. We returned the food, tipped the server and went somewhere else.More

This place is located in a real busy area of delray beach where theres lots of restaurants, shopping and entertainment . We came here to celebrate a friend’s birthday. I like that even though the whole party hadn’t arrive yet . they still sat us...down. The waiter was very nice and the customer service was very great . I gave it four stars because even though the food and service were amazing the bar seemed so packed and no one was wearing a mask. it seemed a little irresponsible of the restaurant to have the bar so packed with everyone on top of each other knowing theres a virus . yes most survive it but unfortunately some don’t . I will definitely come back when is not so over crowded it .More

With 56 restaurants in the space of .3 miles, Atlantic Avenue in Delray Beach really earns its place as TripAdvisor's #3 attraction for the town. We took advantage of it last night, starting with outdoor dinner at City Oyster & Sushi Bar, where the people...watching on Atlantic Ave. can't be beat, and we had an excellent server: Matteo. We shared gynormous Oysters Rockefeller, I had Chef Patrick's shrimp and scallop red Thai curry, and Bill ordered the snapper special. Unfortunately, it was breaded, not pan-seared, but when he peeled off the breading, the fish was incredible. On the way home, we spotted a week-old new place that they're already buzzing about: Lionfish. We'll have to try it, to see whether it's all flash and no pan. Pretty impressive, but who knows?More

Casual dress is fine, including shorts. Almost every restaurant in Downtown Delray Beach is casual since it is a Beach town.
