“Oyster bar”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

City Oyster is a fly-by for us. I rarely eat there because it takes too long to get a table. I will stop by for one drink while we assess our options. City Oyster has a drinkable champagne split. My friends and I drink wine. That split (not the American one) is the reason we still go to City Oyster. If you had a Bordeaux, Burgundy or Red Zin by the glass we could stop more often.

“if you love oysters, you' like city oyster”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

A great selection of oysters from all over the north atlantic and even thenorthwest. Went there for a birthday dinner with family and had a very good meal. Oysters for appetizers, and also a nice tuna roll by the sushi shef and then entrees. I had the shrinp with their homemade pasta and ratatoille and others had seared tuna, salmon, and a variety of seafood. Good service, very good food and a great martini.

“Excellent in All Aspects”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

This was an outstanding dinner. There was a big variety of creative seafood dishes on the menu. The food my wife and I had was very tasty and there was a large variety on the menu. We ate in the outdoor patio. It was an upscale restaurant in a lively area of the city. Our waiter was attentive and had an outgoing, but not overbearing personality. The prices were a little high, but it was worth it.

“Tasty Fish Tacos”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

This was my second visit. I was not impressed the first time but a coupon for 50% one entree brought me back in for a try again. Glad I dined here with my granddaughter. She ventured out of her comfort zone and ordered an Asian cuisine which had dumplings that she enjoyed. I ordered the fish tacos without avocado. I requested extra jalapeno peppers upfront along with salsa.

My blackened fish tacos in soft shells were tasty, served with watermelon on the side. Three tacos came on the serving so I needed to take one home along with the chicken on my granddaughter's plate. The food was excellent heated later for a light dinner in our own soft shells.

We dined outside cafe-style but in the shade of the building. A nice breeze cooled us on the hot sunny day as we thoroughly enjoyed our lunch.

We would visit again.
