    5 of us attended to the restaurant after a prolonged day of meetings. the drink were great, wine list quite nice, and the appetizers and entrees were outstanding. The sauteed soft shell crabs were the best I've had east of New Orleans--a real treasure. All of my guests were pleased and I for sure will venture back.

    Dinner was prepared perfectly to order. The fish was moist and fresh and include the two side dishes.Food presentation was excellent. I was told that it was very expensive, not true. We stayed and talked for a while, and never fell that we were being pressured to leave. Will definitely be coming back.

    Seafood lovers willing to travel to West Boca will not be disappointed by the well run City Fish Market, part of the Buckhead Life restaurant chain (Chop's Lobster Bar Boca, Lobster Bar Sea Grill Ft. Lauderdale and Atlanta locations). Live lobsters, fresh fish, oysters and clams are on display at the entrance. Servers are professional and well trained. Bargain hunters who like to eat at the bar can take adtvantage of the 4-8 p.m. happy hour with about 20 appetizers at 30-40% off and discounted wine, drinks. For dining more comfortably in the large dining rooms you can choose from a large selection of fish and seafood prepared as you like. I prefer fresh and simple and they are happy to oblige. The wine lift offers a good selection.

    We are frequent diners at City Fish Market. They know how to prepare fish here, fresh, moist, never overcooked, and simple, to highlight the flavors of the fish rather than to overwhelm. The other thing you can usually count on is stellar service. On Friday night our server seemed to have an attitude when we did not order drinks or appetizers. After that, he did not check on us, refill water or soda,or come back when we were ready for the check. I spoke with the manager on the way out and got an apology but nothing more. If I did not know this was not the norm I would not go back.

    We really wanted to continue to like CFM. But, regarding their seafood, you can do as well or better for the same price. Particular disappointments included the soft shell crabs (not very flavorful and $35 for two) and the "roasted" oysters (primarily bread crumbs). As someone who has worked in the industry (front and back of the house), I was particularly disappointed with the server "Z or Zafer". He failed to present all of the specials, in addition, he hovered over the table to push us to order even though we were his only table. I had to ask him to give us some time and to properly pace the courses. He seems to be a CFM veteran and too comfortable with his job. His performance was poor compared to the servers at adjacent tables.

    We were a party of 4 and were seated at a booth not far from the bar area. The noise level was very high from conversations and there was also loud music blaring. Not conducive to a nice dinner experience. The food was very good--fish was fresh and well prepared. Well priced. Large selection of wine. The noise would keep us away.

    Each time I dine at City Fish I have never been disappointed. I enjoy the trout and the Top Neck Clams. It brings back memories of my northern roots. All you have to do is look at their fresh fish case as you walk in to the restaurant to know your choice will be outstanding.

    THE DISHES WERE WELL PREPARED AND OUR SERVER WAS VERY ATTENTIVE AND PLEASANT. WE SAT IN THE ROOM TO THE RIGHT AS ONE FACES THE WATER AND FOUND IT TO BE COOLER AND MORE QUIET. THE ONLY ISSUE WITH THE FOOD WAS THE NEW (TO US) "PEPPER STEAK" SWORDFISH. THIS DISH IS NOWHERE AS GOOD OR INTERESTING AS THE PREVIOUSLY ENTITLED OFFERING OF "SWORDFISH AU POIRVE"..IT HAS FAR TOO MANY PEPPERCORNS ENCRUSTED IN IT TO BE ENJOYABLE AND IN THIS CASE WAS OVERDONE AND DRY. THE DINER WHO ORDERED IT (THE ONLY ONE OF THE 6 OF US WHO DID) TRIED TO URGE US IN ADVANCE TO GIVE IT A CHANCE-BUT FORTUNATELY NONE OF US DID AND THEREBY AVOIDED HER UNHAPPY EXPERIENCE. TWO OF US ORDERED SOUPS AND NEITHER ARRIVED PIPING HOT ONLY LUKEWARM.

    My only complaint is that the portion size for the price is undersized. When you are spending $100 for dinner for two, a restaurant should not under serve the size of the portions. Although the shrimp cocktail is fine the entree is definitely a bit small.

    As usual food excellent. However, noticed prices i.e. for crab cakes, keep going up. Also, the bar drinks lack a lot. For ex. a few years back, vodka on happy hour was a top quality. Now it is not one that I would drink. Many bars now will have discounts on top shelf vodkas and other drinks. We do not bother going to the bar anymore and will save the dining for special occasions as it is getting too pricey. In the Summer, there are much better choices elsewhere. Service was very good but not exceptional. It lacked that special little touch that we used to get at this restaurant. Maybe it was just bad luck that night.

    My partner and I were very pleased with our table It was exactly what I asked for when making the open table reservation. We were seated promptly- honoring our reservation as well. My salmon was cooked perfectly but I found the green beans to be slightly salty. My friend ordered the black grouper and sauteed spinach. He said his spinach was very salty.
