A word from City Oyster & Sushi Bar
City Oyster & Sushi Bar is a classic American seafood restaurant. The seafood at City Oyster arrives fresh daily from local purveyors and from fisheries in the Northeast. It's flown in each morning and filleted in City Oysters kitchen. Some of the more popular dishes are the Yellowtail Snapper
Filet, Crab Stuffed Shrimp, Sake and Sesame Seared Tuna, Alaskan King Crab Legs, and Housemade Pasta of the Day. The desserts are all enticing, all house made and all tasty. The award winning wine list offers a huge selection that can be sampled by the bottle or glass. City Oyster offers outdoor sidewalk dining in the center of the action on Atlantic Avenue. City Oyster, simple, fresh and delicious.

Can't blame City Oyster for the
mayhem of Atlantic Ave on a Saturday night, but it is a hassle parking and then getting out of the area. First, an excellent selection of craft beers, about a dozen on tap. Lots of fresh seafood prepared with excellent side pairings. My pan seared snapper was slightly dry, but very flavorful; Ahi tuna was done perfectly as well as the Mahi. For the prices charged I'd expect absolutely tender fish, but it was tasty and well presented. Will go back, but on a weekday evening."

All 3 of us ordered a different
entree and we loved each of them! Our son had the gumbo and said he could happily have it every night of the week. Our waitress couldn't have been sweeter and there were many unique choices. We were absolutely delighted with the entire dinner. We always choose to sit outdoors because it gets quite noisy inside. Would highly recommend City Oyster to all our friends and relatives!!"

My granfather, Fred Benson was an
early settler of Delray Beach, arriving around 1910. city Oyster used to be his hardware store, Ocean City Hardware with Ocean City Lumber Company behind it. The full bathroom and shower he installed is still on the mezzanine level. It was an old fashion hardware store with open bins of nails, bolts and screws and we used to run up and down the aisles as kids playing hide and seek. Robin Raborn"

Fish dip excellent, heavy handed
with salt and butter in some of the other options. Tasty, but... yikes! Service was erratic, but the place was hopping."

My wife and I had gotten
reservations days in advance as we were visiting on Valentines day. The service was excellent, as our waiter Mike knew each entree and also knew a great deal about the beers being served. The sushi was fresh and well made and the mussels my wife ordered had an original flavor that we both loved to use for dipping as well. The manager or owver had stoppe dby and answered questions as well. We try and come here every year when we visit from Philly."

Great restaurant -- Fav on
Atlantic Ave!! Great food and wine and service is consistently excellent. Would highly recommend. Good and wine are great --- and service is consistently excellent from hostess to bartender to waitstaff. Love dining here with just my husband and with friends -- always great!!"
Dined on 2/13/2014
All the tables are great tables -
and the bar is always vibrant. The food is great with a nice variety and great specials also. The service matches the quality of the food because we have been here several times and always have a different server yet they are always very friendly. The servers check on your table enough that you don't ever have to look for them to replenish a drink or ask for something special yet they aren't in your face interrupting the conversation of the group. Love the Gumbo!!!!"

Waiter very attentive. Restaurant
inside too noisy. For younger than 60 may not care very active bar. Food was delicious I would go back and try sitting outside instead"
Dined on 2/8/2014
The server was excellent and the
atmosphere was exactly what we needed to get the party started. The wine list was a good selection. The salmon was a little over cooked but the server was quick to take it off our bill. A very successful night and a great restaurant! We will go back again very soon!"

Nothing to complain about, fair
pricing, good menu, great food. Great place for single men."

If you want ultra fresh sea food,
this is the place to go. I had Peruvian sea bass and it was very fresh and well prepared . Even my wife, who does not eat seafood, took a taste and liked it. The noise level in this large restaurant is more like a steakhouse, so be prepared. Also, it is very dimly lit, so bring your flashlight app, you're going to need it. One small criticism was that the fra diavolo sauce for our mussels appetizer could have been spicier. I am use to fra diavolo having a pretty good kick, without requesting it. That's why it's called fra diavolo. However, the mussels were as fresh as any you could get up north. All n all, great food and service."
Dined on 2/6/2014
We originally asked for an inside
table, but the noise level was so high, we opted to take a table on the edge of the outdoor seating area...a perfect choice, because the din was muffled by the glass doors separating the spaces. So we could actually carry on a conversation with our table mates. The menu was varied, and there were choices for everyone at the table. My wife's oysters were beyond expectation...fabulous! I had pasta with fresh clams which was excellent. We made a great choice for dinner; not inexpensive, but certainly not extravagant."
Dined on 2/5/2014
food was good, but the portion was
small and the price expensive ($37) for small piece of halibut"
Dined on 2/4/2014
We had explored the restaurant
before, but will be back soon. We reserved through Open Table and after a short wait we received an outstanding table. The waiter was prompt and friendly. The place was extremely busy, but we never felt hurried. Pricing is on the high side but the food was outstanding."

City O is always on point when it
comes to their food, service, & ambience! For brunch my go-to favorites are the chicken paillard, and their Dutch pancake!"
Dined on 2/2/2014
I like city oyster because it is
always good and has a lot of variety. Their sushi is delicious. Especially the mango tango roll and tuna lovers roll. The regular food is good too. They have great fish and I love their lobster roll. And they have unlimited mimosas and bloodmary's in Sundays! They don't have a cocktail menu which is sort of strange but otherwise it's a great place with consistently good food."
Dined on 1/31/2014
Have been there several times.
This time may have been the best of all. Terrific and fun. They know what they're doing."
Dined on 1/29/2014
Met there with friends had not
seen in many years, opted for indoor table, quieter, although outdoors looked lovely too. Chose for location, but was delighted with excellent service and truly outstanding food. Would return anytime and have already recommended to several friends."

We love this place. Been here
numerous times and never disappointed . It is expensive for a full meal, but we'll worth it."
Dined on 1/25/2014
The place was packed for a Friday
night dinner setting. The bar crowd kind of spills into some of the dinner seating but it works. The crowd is loud but not overbearing. It is a very nice place right in the heart of downtown Delray with good food and service. Try the oysters and enjoy."
Dined on 1/24/2014
Open Table reservations made this
very easy. The restaurant was very busy but the hostess staff seated us right away. Our server Dustin made this a really superior experience. The food was fantastic and the restaurant has a great selection of wine and beer. We have been coming to City Oyster many years and one thing is for sure, it is consistantly good!!! All around a great place for a dining experience."

We have made the City Oyster Bar
pour go-to restaurant in Delray Beach because it is upbeat and delicious. We are always greeted warmly and served by the friendliest and most knowledgeable staff. We especially like the outdoor seating for "people watching"."

We had a great experience @ City
Oyster & Sushi Bar. The food was great and our server took great care of us. It was also a special occasion with my daughter's birthday and family members in from out of town. It was a hopping place with a great bar scene!"

After reading such rave reviews, I
was disappointed with the mediocre food. But worse than the food was the noise....my friends and I could not even hear each other while sitting at the same table. We skipped dessert and coffee just to get out of there."
Dined on 1/18/2014
We were pleasantly surprised with
our dinner at City Oyster. We reserved primarily because it looked like a fun place when we walked by. Happily, the food and service were wonderful, we had a lovely meal. The fish was very fresh, the menu imaginative. Be fore warned, it is a large menu! There are sushi chefs on site. We shared a few rolls, one without rice (very good), and, as sushi snobs, were happy with them all. Salads and veggies also very fresh. We only ate fish, but there are other choices. We did not save room for dessert, however the one delivered to the next table looked wonderful. We did not have a chance to hang out at the bar, but it looked lively and fun. Nice cocktails, decent wine list. Reserve, gets crowded!"
Dined on 1/16/2014
Great seafood! Excellent, friendly
service. Ordered a Tom Collins, but would have preferred it to have more "oomph". Atmosphere is very, very noisy. Saw a small baby there and worried about its hearing. Still, it's one of our favorite Delray restaurants."
Dined on 1/15/2014
I really like this restaurant. The
food is always delicious and the service is always very good. None of the attitude like you find in other Atlantic Ave establishments. They were also very gracious about holding our table when we were 40 min late. And you can't beat the prices--a very good value considering the quality of the food and service."
Dined on 1/12/2014
Food - very well prepared, present
and flavorful - particularly the brussel sprout appetizer - YUM! Our server, Bennett was attentive and timely! Very well trainied. The only comment on the downside was the upholstery in our booth was worn and torn. For the prices charged the ambience should be top notch. Overall, a great experience. Thank you!"
