My friend and I went for Happy Hour.
We were able to sit at the bar finally!
It was great! Plexiglass between chairs and the service was great! We had Diana as our bartender and she was so nice and attentive. It was great being back at City Oyster for Happy Hour. 🥂🥃🍷

The fish is always fresh and perfectly cooked. The vibe is perfect for downtown Delray. But what really sets it apart is that the service is always perfect. Great people, great training. Very attentive to customers' needs without being pushy.

Anniversary Dinner, we had twin lobster tails and the lamb chops, both served with ample amount of mashed potatoes and asparagus. Everything was excellent! Service is quick and attentive. Dirty Vodka Martini and a Budweiser finished it off. We go there several times a year for lunch and do Birthdays and Special Days for dinner.

City Oyster is my favorite place on the Avenue and the best meeting spot in East Delray beach.

I’ve been going there for years and all of my friends also love it too.

Oh ya and Especially the oysters.....always fresh!!

We ate here for Sunday brunch and it was not as good as it usually is. The clam chowder tasted burnt. We would have brought it up to our server but couldn’t as she was hardly around our table to check on us. Overall it was slightly disappointing as City Oyster is one of our go-to spots in Delray.

Our first time to this restaurant - we will go back! Great service, and food was on point. Slightly higher noise level than I prefer, but tolerable. 99% of staff were following mask guidelines. Only 1-2 that needed a lesson in mask wearing.

Food and service were both spectacular. The draw back to the night was the party behind us sitting outside. Even after being shut off from alcohol, the server continued to serve them shots. They were loud, crass and frankly inappropriate. Our birthday celebration was echoed with constant f bombs and drunken behavior. Just disappointed management did not follow through on shutting them off.

Professional team work from experienced Hostess, servers and managers.
Our server Diane remembered us from 15 years ago.
While dining on Prine time Saturday night we even observed Celebrity Chef Captain Snapper dining with his family that now exclusively does Private dinners for the Elite in Palm Beach.

With Executive Chef Jordan Stilley the best on the famous Avenue in Delray at the Helm and his team of assistants City Oyster is the best seafood restaurant in Delray Beach, so hurry in and tell them Billy Wisdom sent your.

Disappointed with the experience. Took 10 minutes for the kitchen to tell the server that they were out of the appetizer we ordered. Manager said that pushed back the prep of our entrées. Waited a long time for main course. Arrived at 5:45pm. The restaurant was empty. No excuse for shoddy execution.

Service was solid. Social distancing measures were more than adequate. Oyster selection was really good. Entrees were just okay...for what we paid we expected a little better. Scallops were prepared well but carrot risotto was far too sweet. Grouper was prepared well but sauce and risotto were flavorless. Daughter had hummus (really good), truffle fries and truffle sprouts. Both sides were over salted.
