Food here is very good. Our server was excellent. The only downside to the meal was the noise level. At dinner, the bar is busy & on this Thurs night the noise level was over the top. Diners had to shout to make themselves heard. If you love seafood this is the place to go in the Delray a beach area

We ate early at 6pm and were able to get an outside table which was much quieter. The bar crowd from 5-7 is way too loud for us inside. Our server was Christina. She knew the menu inside and out and was very attentive. We tried two of the approx 6 types of raw oysters they were serving. We both really enjoyed ours. I had the 2 lobster tails as entree and my husband had the halibut special. Both were great. We love their extensive wine list. Always delicious!

Arrived on time and we were seated promptly. The restaurant was crowded and extremely noisy. We requested an outdoor table since it was so loud inside. Fortunately, they honored our request.
The food was on the pricey side but it was very good. I thought the desserts were particularly pricey considering the portion size
We did enjoy the meal and the waitress did not rush us so we got time to spend with our friends.
Don’t love the parking in Delray. It’s hard to find convenient street parking so we paid close to $20 for valet.

Love this place - always a good experience. We had sushi and oysters to start - excellent. I had the mussels after hearing how great they are and I totally agree with that assessment - they were great. Overall this is a great restaurant on the strip.

We were seated and no one ever came to our table to welcome us or take a drink order. After 10 minutes a busboy delivered bread. After another 5 minutes still no server or waiter so we got up and left

Service was good, very efficient and pleasant waitress
My yellow tail “hong kong” style was delicious.
The 3 other people were very pleased with thier selections too.
The NOISE and very closely spaced tables are the negatives
Be advised !

We have been dining there since they opened. It’s gotten very expensive with the quality declining. We ordered mussels which were giant in size and arrived cold. The grouper I had was dark, tough, not fresh and covered in a red goop that did not work for grouper.

Very dissatisfied! Been to city oyster many times . Today we sat at bar . Could not get waited on for 20 minutes not a bartender in sight. Finally came and told us we had 20 min before kitchen closed . He then disappeared for 15 min finally ordered . Food took forever came out cold had to send it back. Never asked us if we wanted a drink. Finally flagged down another bartender and said “ miss” she put her hand out at us and said “shhh “ I’m busy . We finally got Kendall that’s the original guy who waited in us attention for a drink gave us a drink then completely ignored us the rest of the time. Some guy came in must have been a regular ordered a bottle of wine Kendall bent over backward to take care of him meanwhile both me and my husbands drinks were empty no silverware No crackers for soup cold food. Guess this is Brunch at city oyster? The woman next to us sat down and also waited 20 min for anyone to even notice her . Zero persons behind the bar for at least 15 min. When it came to get our check Kendall and the female bartender were counting their tips and completely ignored refilling drinks or getting anyone’s checks. Absolutely the most unprofessional service I’ve ever seen at this place . Unfortunately not surprised .

We had a group of six friends celebrating a birthday on Saturday night. Were fortunate to get a comfortable booth at the rear of the restaurant which was quieter for conversation. Food and service were very good. The only disappointment was I had called a few days ahead to request a Happy Birthday dessert and song which never happened.

This was the second time that i had to wait over 45 minutes for a reservation. I am a frequent diner. I shouldn’t have to wait that long when there is a reservation.

Great restaurant for fish, best oyster around town, only draw back is that it is NOISY11

It has soild walls and metal ceiling, so the NOISY level is as bad as it gets! Eat outside on the street, as the road noise is better!!

We had a table for 5 adults and one 2 year old. Our reservation was on point. From the time we were seated and throughout our meal the service was EXCEPTIONAL! We began the meal with cocktails with 2 dozen assorted oysters. Then had mahi, HK snapper, swordfish, and fruti di mare and for my grandaugter, fish fingers and fries. ALL OUTSTANDING! Lastly, ended with expresso, gelato and chocolate nemisis. We'll be back real soon.

Food was great but service wasn't. Felt rushed to leave. Waitress didn't ask if we wanted refills or anything. Guess they were going for quantity over quality.

New Year's Eve Dinner. Out with Friends. Arrived at 7pm, planned on being out by 930pm. The waiter clearly wanted to turn over the table as much as possible. We had one appetizer and asked for a second afterwards. Told by the waiter that NO, just one appetizer and then he can bring a second with dinner only! He said they were 'too busy '. Meanwhile, it wasn't packed, and anyone who is a regular here, knows it gets packed. We said you are rushing us. He says sorry but that's the way it is. We stewed for a bit, then went up and spoke to management. They apologized, told the waiter that was inappropriate and comped our appetizer. The waiter didn't seem to care at all. We are grateful for management. We left before 9:15 which was fair to everyone. We'll be back, due to management but not the waiter.

We go to City Oyster whenever we are in Delray. This time was exceptional, and it’s always good. The sushi rolls, Mahi-mahi, lobster rolls, and fish tacos were all great. Kevin was great waiter. The one thing about the place is the sound level — very, very loud

The meals were served timely and all guests were served at the same time. The orders were well prepared, hot & exactly as described. Every dish was excellent. The restaurant is a bit too loud for me ... stay away from the bar or eat outside.

Paulina was one of the best waitresses we gave ever had at City Oyster. She was attentive, informative and friendly.
The only negative is the hostess sat us directly facing the kitchen when there were several
Other booths available.
The oysters are absolutely the very freshest!
