The food and service was fantastic but the restaurant was packed and didn’t follow the CDC guidelines and social distancing. My husband and I didn’t feel comfortable being there. We will not be back for a while.

Very crowded, good for them, loud, no masks on people walking around. Food was okay, not GREAT , not cheap. Ate at Big City? At Rosemary Sq, a month or so ago, much better. I have been a fan of Billy, Tod and Lisabet for a long time but was disappointed in this place.

The food is amazing. The staff was friendly and attentive. We love the oyster selection. It was very busy, but the noise level was still comfortable enough to be able to have normal conversation

We always love City Oyster but this last experience was not good. After being seated at a great table by a friendly hostess, the evening went downhill from there. The waitress was very slow and distracted and dinner took 2 hours. We waited so long for appetizers and even longer for dinner. The food was delicious but my appetizer of steamed dumplings was $16 and ridiculously small. The tables around us were served much faster and were done with dinner before we got out entrees. Hopefully, next time will be better.

We were greeted by a wonderful waitress and table with focaccia and olive oil. Drinks were awesome. There are numerous creative cocktails I had the old fashioned. My wife had a strawberry and basil, while friends had the peach lemonade and later an espresso martini. We started with the oysters from Washington and Welfleet, followed by sush: spicy tuna and kamikaze rolls. We split the sirloin. Friends had the pumpkin sword fish and more. All was great. We finished with the most delicious peanut butter chocolate pie and apple pastry with ice cream. It was awesome. Manager came by in the end and offered some free drinks. Great place.....can’t say more.

First time trying her for Valentine’s Day. The oysters were AMAZING. We got the blue point (highly recommended) we also got the delray roll, Poseidon roll and red dragon. All such good quality and every bite was different. There is such a big selection on sushi rolls that it was really hard for us to decide. I will be back to try more rolls. The service was outstanding and our waiter was funny. 10/10 recommend for a nice date night.

Everything was great. Just you’d figure lobster tails would be both consistent and cooked perfectly. 1 was chewy and other was mushy. Besides that great night.

Everything about this place was amazing from start to end. Visited for the first time on Valentine’s Day and didn’t expect too much being restaurants are always mediocre on major holidays. However, that was definitely not the case here. The oysters were heaven sent, so fresh and tasty that we ordered a second round of a dozen. The twin lobster tails, sautéed spinach and mash were so good I didn’t want it to end. We also tried the crab cake which was another great choice. The Pineapple Martini was vey delicious. The service was so welcoming and friendly. This is an all staff hands on type of restaurant. So you basically interact with almost all available staff in addition to your actual waiter/waitress. It was first class service with a smile, and not a phony or forced smile. These people seemed to actually love their job and made sure we had the best experience possible. I can’t wait to return!!

Food (brunch) was mediocre at best. Service person didn’t seem to give a damn. We sent back several drinks which were just badly made. The supposed cappuccino was just bad coffee with a bit of very watery foam on top. I told the waitress it was the worst cappuccino I had ever been served and she just shrugged. Sort of sums up the place. Note to self : don’t go back there.
