    Sat outside during the Delray Affair on Friday and had a delicious lunch. Beautiful setting to bring out of town guests. The wait staff was training someone and so we got excellent service. The food is consistently very good. The Maine lobster roll is my favorite as I’m originally from the NE. Not bad for Florida. Definitely worth it!

    City Oysters has always been a very enjoyable restaurant for their drinks, service, and delicious food. Whenever we return to the area, CO is always one of the first restaurants we will make a reservation for dinner.

    Terrific restaurant that does it proper. Our Service Provider was outstanding. The food was very good and the ambiance was noisy although not too loud which gave us the opportunity to have conversation during dinner. Important!! Well Done City Oyster!!

    The acoustics are horrific. You can’t even have a normal volume conversation at your own table. Although the food is good, and very appealing, the portions are subpar at best, and it is one of the priciest restaurants other than premier steakhouses.  if they’re extremes or more to the norm, and they solve the sound problem, I would go there  regularly, but given the conditions that exist, there are 30 places within two blocks that would be better choices

    Had a great dinner at City Oyster & Sushi Bar UNTIL the manager came over and asked us to leave! We were two couples husband and wife. Not wild and crazy. We started with apps and drinks. Then moved to entrees. As we finished and were still drinking our drinks and contemplating dessert the manager came over and said “people are waiting for a table”. Do u mind leaving? I’ll comp your drinks. We didn’t have that many. Sparkling water, two mixed drinks and glass of wine. . It’s not like we were just hanging out! Our meals were over $200. So what could have been a great dining experience was ehh okay Oh and did I mention we had reservations! Yes had rsvp for at 5:30 and we waited, and waited for a table. So to be asked to leave was quite surprising, when we probably would have left within 20-30 minutes. Very disappointing. Not a Resturant I would revisit or recommend.

    City Oyster is a top Delray Beach dining venue in the centre of town on Atlantic. A great, constantly buzzy vibe given it is a hugely popular restaurant and always busy especially during the season. My latest meal was up to its usual high standards - the daily fish entree special is always a good option to choose and the halibut for my meal was first class.

    Not good. I booked a table for 21.45 and when we arrived they said we had 10min to order. Upsetting because why would they allow to take bookings if we do not have the time to enjoy our dinner. We were rushed straight when we arrived by staff members so we decided to leave.

    The place was jammed and noisy. However, my fish -- Halibut, may have been the best I ever had. Our waitress was amazing ... very attentive and delightful. She migrated to the states on a scholarship....the old fashion way. Proud to be an American when you meet people like this! Highly recommend

    This is my second time here. Once for dinner and once for brunch, my Fiancé LOVES it here. Personally, I’m not as much of a fan. I feel like everything I’ve eaten is missing something. I don’t think it’s bad, the service has been good, but the food is lacking. The inside has a great ambiance, but it is LOUD. I would give it 3.5 stars if I could.

    Overall very good. Service is almost rushed. Food comes out too quickly. I’ve been here twice and both times same experience. Menu pricing is fair in some spots and “gougy” in others. Very good but we had to find somewhere else to hang out as they clearly didn’t want anyone sitting there for too long.
