    My birthday dinner turned into two"happy" hours at one of the most vibrant restaurant bars in the Boca area. Two glasses of a nice pinot noir, mussels, crab cake and a loaf of bread. No room for what is always a great sit down in the dining room. A thoroughly great evening out and one we will gladly repeat!

    This was our third visit - great food but mediocre service, for the second time. Not terrible, a nice enough waiter, but inattentive and slow. But the fish is terrific, which is why we keep going back.

    City Fish Market never disaappoints. We sat outside so had a great view of the lake. This is one of the few restaurants that knows how to prepare fish. Always fresh and never overcooked. Our server Debbie recognized us from prior visits and is a gem. Management cares and it shines through. Love,love, love this restaurant. It can get noisy inside at peak hours, but if the weather Is nice sit outside.

    The food is great here. My lobster couldn't have been sweeter. The sides and salads are really good too..with service always good. The place is a bit noisy, but that's because the place is huge and gets really crowded. My only complaint here, and it does bother me, is that they don't let you substitute sides and charge you $5.50 for them. Many dishes come with green beans and mashed sweet potatoes. The green beans are way too greasy and the sweet potatoes great, but you want a baked potato you pay $5 bucks for it. They Nickole and dime you several places on the menu and it's bush league for a place with these prices. It's not cheap. This said the food is really good and I will be back again and again!

    We had previously visited City Fish Market in Boca Raton on two separate occasions. We decided to take our out-of-town guests last Sunday evening. The third time was NOT the charm! Service was inattentive. Food took a long time to get to the table even after our server said it was up in the kitchen and ready. Three out of four dishes were horrendous. Dover sole portion was so small it was ridiculous. A special -- fried yellowtail snapper was the whole fish too big for the plate. I asked them to take it back,remove the head and the tail and debone it. It came back looking like someone had hacked it into pieces -- that were totally dried out. No attempt by management to make up for the bad dinner. NEVER AGAIN!

    Dining at the City Fish Market was an awesome experience! The menu was extensive which was surprising. My wife is a chef so it's hard to get a positive reaction but she was surprised with the service food and the apple crumb cake was sooooo good! She had the Key lime pie which was also delicious!! I would recommend this eatery to all of my friends!! It's worth the cash!!

    My husband and I enjoyed our favorite dishes once again at City Fish Market. However, the server had barely cleared the salad plate when the entrees were whooshed down in front of us. We did not enjoy the feeling that we were being rushed through our meal. Also, the live band in the bar area was a little loud for other diners. As with many other restaurants, City Fish needs to decide if they are a restaurant or a night club.

    Although the waiter was very pleasant and attentive, he did not advise that the spiced tuna steak main course did not come with any sides except one half of a boiled potato which the tuna covered. My wife's salmon was sent back for heating since it arrived somewhat cool - the manager took care of that since he passed by first. The chocolate dessert was delicious and the quantity large; the bread was out of this world. But overall, somehow this meal did not reach the perfection of our prior visit a few months ago. I feel the menu is heavy on the alcohol and wine (which we do not imbibe) and light on variety of appetizers. A bouillabaisse, for example, would draw me back in an instant.

    We were seated in main dining room. We had drinks and then ordered the mussels as an appetizer. One of the reasons we went was for this dish. We were then going to order dinner. It was 6:35 and were told they ran out of mussels. What restaurant runs out of a dish at 6:35pm. We decided then to just go to the bar and order some appetizers. On the way to the bar we saw a manager and asked why they would run out of mussels so early. His reply was that he was in charge of the front of the house. then saw a manager in front and again asked this question. His reply was that they didn't like the way they looked so didn't bring them in. I find this hard to believe. This is a fish restaurant with fresh fish probably brought in daily.

    The entire dining experience from the valet parking to dessert was professional and pleasant. Prices are high, but the service and food was very good. The place is very loud, not a quiet romantic dinner with candlelight. I would return, but it has to be for a special occasion versus a casul night out.

    I was slightly disappointed. I had eaten here two nights prior and enjoyed the entire experience. On this occasion my party was seated on the lower lever near the fountain. The view was fine, but for some reason the noise level was much higher than it was on my previous visit although the number of people present appeared to be relatively the same. Our server, Tom was excellent as was Lily who served us previously. The staff is uber-attentive and knowledgable about the entire menu and specials. I had the seafood Newburd au gratin. I had it two nights ago and enjoyed it immensely. This time, it repeated on me throughout the night. Perhaps a tad too much garlic. The taste was fine, but I paid for it all night.

    My wife and I have eaten here many times. The fish was fresh and cooked deliciously as usual. We have never been disappointed at City Fish Market. On this night we decided to eat lightly ordering only two entres and an appetizer which we shared. My wife had some questions about substitution of an accomneyment and the price of an off menu item. All of this seemed to be an annoyance to our waiter who became very curt and seemed to become more annoyed when we declined to order dessert or coffee.

    This was one of our favorite fish places in the area. Sadly this time was a huge disappointment. Service was average at best. Dinner was ok. Desserts all got sent back. The manager then stood and argued about the quality of the dessert, basically calling 4 guests liars... Cause he thought the desserts were amazing. His idea of making this right was to send us out 4 more of the same desserts, which we declined, and he argued once more about us taking the desserts. We won't be returning.

    This restaurant is one of my husband's favorites. I, on the other hand, think it's overrated and not as good as folks say. The "fresh" fish always seems dry. Now, to be fair, I don't like sauces so I order it on the side. But, I don't think the fish should be cooked so much. So, I'm giving it just a fair rating. Plus, the noise level inside is so loud you can't have a decent conversation.

    I had requested a booth- no booth. Saw a good table- told it wobbled. Requested that we could put something under legs and sit there-said they had been trying for weeks to fix it. Told a booth would soon be available-waited. Asked if we wanted to sit outside- we didn't. Then they sat party at wobbly table which was now deemed fixed without checking to see if we wanted it. Waited some more. Finally, sat at a table near the wobbly table. Lobster tail came out broiled instead of steamed- it was replaced and very nicely handled. However, we were rather turned off already after our long wait. It was a frustrating evening.
