We had a 91 st birthday celebration at City Oyster and everyone couldn’t have been kinder and more accommodating. Brian was our waiter and was great. Manager and other personnel stopped by to say congrats to our birthday lady. Most enjoyable day. Thank you

A must visit when in Delray Beach! The drinks at the bar are great and the bartender was spot on with the recommendations for dinner. The Fried Calamari were some of the best we have had. The Hogfish Special was made to perfection. We finished it off by sharing the Peanut Butter Pie! WOW!!

Our meal was very good - excellent shrimp cocktail, oysters and entrees. Our server was excellent as well. My only complaint is the crab cocktail. It's listed on the menu as a jumbo lump crab cocktail but the pieces of crab were not much bigger than a chickpea. Definitely not jumbo lump and not worth $19.00. Other than that we enjoyed everything and will definitely be back.

What a fun place! Noisy but thriving with life. Food is excellent. Twin lobster tails were done to perfection. Service was beyond expectations. She never missed a beat. Not the place for an intimate dinner, but if you are in the mood for a great evening with friends, this is the place.

Went there again Sunday night . Oyster section was small. No west coast oysters. My wife had sushi special which server said was 20.00 on bill it came out as 30.00. $30.00 for a roll no way. Server disappeared for 25 minutes called another server over and manager. Manager apologized up and down and removed the roll totally from the bill. I did not ask her to. All was good except server

Great service and excellent seafood menu. Food was well prepared and portions were very reasonable. Great spot for a late night meal—or drop-in for a drink at the bar.

My partner and I enjoyed a wonderful meal on Monday evening. I had the salmon which was delicious and Marty really enjoyed one of the fish specials. Our server was delightful, great personalty and very professional at the same time.
Our open table reservation was honored and we were seated upon arrival.
I look forward to coming back soon.
Thank you City Oyster for a lovely evening!

It was too noisy inside so we sat outside and my chair was on a tilt so that was annoying none of that mattered. The food was incredible. I had the grouper Amatraciano. It was unbelievable. Also had the giant raw bar tower. Everybody’s meal was perfect. One of the best meals I’ve had in a long time.

Truly excellent food. We were blown away. Server was personable and knowledgeable about the food. He helped in advising what oysters to choose. The location is great for feeling like you're in the heart of the action but at an enjoyable distance.

Good place to go. Our waitress was on point, couldn’t be happier with the service. Found the food to be pretty good (my blackened mahi mahi was lacking flavor though).

I may go back and try other dishes. One good part, they offered a discount on a certain bottles of wine the night I was there.

We used to love this restaurant, but I recently had dinner here with two other people, me being the only woman. After the server took our drink order, he referred to me as “sweetie, “ which was quite rude. Since I didn’t want to ruin our dinner, I didn’t say anything. The two men with me felt the same way. The noise level is always horrible, but we haven’t let that stand in the way since the food has been great. But, this time it wasn’t, it was so so. And, for the prices, and reputation, it should always be great!!! I’ve decided that it’s time to move on, and find a new sea food restaurant!

While we always choose outside, Saturday night was quite warm, and our fan could not be put on high - although they did try. Restaurant needs to assure that all fans are working perfectly, especially in these warm months.

The consistency of the delicious food and location in Downtown Delray make this restaurant really good...but what makes the restaurant GREAT is Mateo, the best server ever. We haven’t been there in about 2-3 months but Mateo remembered exactly what we loved. He came up to us and hugged us and said “I’ll get you 2 Arnold Palmers and should I put in an order of a dozen Blue Points (oysters)? He remembered that’s our favorite! He is genuine and funny and such a great sever that he makes, in my opinion City Oyster the BEST restaurant in Delray.
When you go request Mateo and you’ll see what I mean! Oh, and I highly recommend the Delray Beach Roll. A California roll topped with mango, avocado, shrimp and chunks of tender lobster. Yum!!
