Not very impressed. Seems that lately I've grown more conscious of my return on investment than I was before.
For a $220 dinner for 2 I expect everything to be 100%. Service in the location si stellar, 100% for that but not even the most cordial and jovial of servers can make up for a not so hot kitchen.
I think the restaurant is more hype than delivery. Just the fact that Uni was not available on the menu, or Ama Ebi, tells me their sushi chef is wanting.
Don't think I will be courting this joint in the future...

Food & Service was great. Noise level outside was intense & loud from motorcycles to cars revving up & fumes were terrible. Felt like we were sitting in the middle of the street. We recognize its the best you can do to accommodate outside seating but there are some tables that should be eliminated, ours was one! Thanks.

Food and service were great, but the tables were a little close, so we felt a little COVID uncomfortable.

The issue that we had was we asked for the fish to be grilled and it appeared to be more pan fried and was supposed to come with green salsa Verde but came with capers and tomatoes instead. My wife does not like capers.

Absolutely no social distancing whatsoever even inside. Tables way to close together

Also employee break table in the middle of the dining room. Employees right there in front of customers. Very strange

The food was excellent except my quiche was not cooked and it was cold. I sent it back and I waited almost 30 minutes for my meal. My husband enjoyed his burger but asked the food runner for dijon mustard and never got it.

We love City Oyster, it is a great spot to watch the crowds go by on Atlantic Avenue. The food and service is always top notch. Great fish tacos, oysters and smoked fish dip! Our server Ashley was fantastic, friendly and attentive. Will be back again soon.

the oyster is good, but they didn't come identified by names (we chose 2 of each type, but we don't know how to identify them). The sushi with caviar is good, I recommend paying the $ 45 only if you really want to eat caviar. There are other cheaper sushi and they must be good. The kids menu was a terrible choice, the chicken was fried in a tempura batter and the potato was super burnt, I asked to change it and it was burnt again.

Great food and drinks! I recommend the crab cake, oysters, lobster roll, and turkey panini. We also love that they have cocktails with premium rums. The mojito is made with Appleton Estate and the Atlantic punch is made with Diplomatico. The service was great!
