City oyster is still good but definitely lost its edge on Atlantic Ave. bring it back or we will be talking about the former city oyster restaurant. Fish tacos were dry! Not sure what happened there. Sushi was high quality.

Lobster Roll was Lobster Salad on a roll. Not as expected for price. Preferred authentic roll with chunks of lobster on buttered roll without overpowering red onion flavor. Otherwise the rest was very good and good service!

Absolutely love this place! We had two dozen oysters with our Easter lunch. They were fantastic! Our server (Melaina? ) was wonderful.

Thanks for a great meal!

Easter brunch included unlimited Mimosas (for a added price) but they were all premixed without an option for straight champagne with orange juice on the side. I love a splash of OJ but these Mimosas were loaded with OJ which obviously I and my wife did not like. My breakfast Included two eggs with bacon and toast. I received two slices of bacon and virtually a thin slice of toast. If you wanted home fries it was an extra charge. Since when are potatoes and bread expensive items. We are one and done at City Oyster for brunch!

Early dinner was fine. Friendly service and nice variety on the menu. We ate outside which was lovely and interesting people watching.

One exception: a long freight train went through right as our entrees arrived. It was so loud no one could hear anything else and it seemed like a very long very fast fright train. It almost felt unsafe.

I ordered the Lobster Roll. The lobster did not taste fresh—almost as if it had a preservative on it. There was a HUGE amount of celery in it. Perhaps my roll was made from the last bit of lobster salad in the bowl.

I did not order the oysters because they were more expensive than any of the restaurants that we have visited in Palm Beach… I would say our meals were middle of the road not excellent and not poor… The place is so noisy you better eat outside if you plan to talk to one another…We would not return…

Our server was a delightful young lady. Even with a mask you could feel her smile by looking at her eyes. I forget her name but she was very good. You could tell she appreciated and liked her job.

We sat inside and was hoping for a booth but our party of 4 wasn’t large enough. Noise level in the restaurant was very loud but it was also very busy. Hostesses were professional and accommodating, both over the phone and in person. Our server was friendly, attentive, and conscientious. Loved her personal recommendations for both menu selections and wine, and the extra special thought to put a birthday candle in my husband’s dessert. That was a wonderful touch. The food here never ever disappoints. It’s is always incredibly fresh and an incredible value. Keeps us coming back year after year!

We loved City Oyster so much that we went there three times in our one week in Delray! Wonderful menu, delicious food and drink at good value, and fun people-watching make it a great place to be for either lunch or dinner. We look forward to returning on our next trip.
