I enjoyed everything about City Oyster. The menu has great choices and our fantastic server, Stacy, made excellent recommendations. We enjoyed fresh oysters, no rice sushi and I had a fantastic piece of yellow fin tuna cooked Hong Kong style. I want to go back and try more oysters, more sushi, other fresh shell fish and sea food. The pace... More

Went there with 2 other couples for dinner. After calling them directly, I was able to move up our reservations time. We were seated promptly. Hillary and Heather were our waitresses. Very friendly and attentive. I, as well as others, had the kale salad that was very tasty. For dinner I had the scallop risotto. Others had the fish tacos... More

I just can't get good service at this place. Food is usually good a bit overpriced but the service is horrible.

This is an excelent fish and seafood restaurant, also has a good sushi menu. The place is very nice, it is on the Main Street in Delray Beach, all the food is delicious and very fresh. I ate a tasty crab cake and an spectacular pasta with lobster and scallops. Definitely is a good place.

This was our first time at city oyster. It was a very busy evening, but the service was excellent. Our waitress was very delightful and right there when you needed another cocktail. The food was excellent and the view of Atlantic Ave was delightful. Great evening

This charming restaurant in the hustle and bustle of Delray Beach was an absolute joy to visit. We just adored the great choice on the menu all types of seafood and Sushi available. I chose the Yellow tail snapper which was so delicious. A reasonably priced restaurant with great hospitality. Go you can will not be disappointed.

For apps, we had oysters plus the burrata and the crab cakes, both of which were delicious (seriously...get the burrata). We ordered a range of options - from sushi to pasta to Hong Kong fish to balsamic chicken. (And kids' chicken fingers.) Everyone was happy with their dinners. I can say the sushi was fresh and generous, serving-wise, and I... More

Very popular and noisy up until about 8:30; second seating much more relaxed for anyone who actually wants to talk to your dinner companion. Our oysters were superb. Came all the way from New England but fresh and briny. Get a dozen and cut corners on your meal elsewhere. Main course was a local Florida reef fish--snapper. Not overcooked-savory crust... More
