My husband took me to City Oyster on a Wednesday evening to celebrate my 53rd birthday. This was our first time dining at this restaurant. The place was energetic and we were struck by the age diversity of the crowd. The food was delicious and fresh. Our server Stacy was excellent; we did not feel rushed and she checked in with us frequently to refill our beverages and pour our wine. I was also very impressed with her knowledge about the menu and details about the ingredients and preparation. My husband and I both enjoyed our experience.

Very good service. Great wine list and cocktail section. So many great choices on menu. My Husband loves the lobster rolls. The seafood pasta was good. My mani mani with polenta was good. We come here every time we are in town. I wish it wasn’t so loud , and it’s on the expensive end of the spectrum.

First let me say that our server was beyond friendly and attentive, I believe her name was Chelsea, and I would definitely request to sit in her section again. I had the grouper at her recommendation and it was delicious! My husband had the swordfish, it was tasty however, the asparagus was extremely over powering and the amount of asparagus was ridiculous. All in all, perfect for date night!

Great restaurant in Delray Beach. Loud due to the bar which attracts a lot of walk in customers. Fantastic food and service.

As always, City Oyster has some of the best food on the Ave. NY Strip is outstanding and hard to believe that it’s better than the steak houses on the Ave. Can’t wait to go back.

We have been regulars at City Oyster for 12 yrs. and have always enjoyed it. Our only complaint is that their prices have gotten too expensive. $14 for a very small kale salad!

Everything was great here except the noise level. You basically need earplugs it is so loud in this restaurant. We went with a party of six and were sitting in a booth - we could barely hear each other. Even our waiter apologized for having to yell out specials. Wish they could address this issue!

Came early for patio seating as this restaurant fills up quick, especially on weekend nights. Forget raw bars, this is the place for oysters. Always a good selection to choose from. Nice sized portions for entrees and cooked or seared perfectly.

We had a 91 st birthday celebration at City Oyster and everyone couldn’t have been kinder and more accommodating. Brian was our waiter and was great. Manager and other personnel stopped by to say congrats to our birthday lady. Most enjoyable day. Thank you

A must visit when in Delray Beach! The drinks at the bar are great and the bartender was spot on with the recommendations for dinner. The Fried Calamari were some of the best we have had. The Hogfish Special was made to perfection. We finished it off by sharing the Peanut Butter Pie! WOW!!

Our meal was very good - excellent shrimp cocktail, oysters and entrees. Our server was excellent as well. My only complaint is the crab cocktail. It's listed on the menu as a jumbo lump crab cocktail but the pieces of crab were not much bigger than a chickpea. Definitely not jumbo lump and not worth $19.00. Other than that we enjoyed everything and will definitely be back.

What a fun place! Noisy but thriving with life. Food is excellent. Twin lobster tails were done to perfection. Service was beyond expectations. She never missed a beat. Not the place for an intimate dinner, but if you are in the mood for a great evening with friends, this is the place.
